Soccer player breaks his leg celebrating non-goal

Stupid injuries are the best. Gotta love rich athletes absolutely humiliating themselves.

Enter Fabian Espindola.

He's a pretty good soccer player for Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer.

In a game against Los Angeles Beckhams Galaxy, Espindola scored an apparent 6th-minute goal. So excited he attempts one of his customary back-flips, only to break his leg on the landing.

Ouch.
"I'm embarrassed, "said Espindola, who celebrated goals with a flip since his days as a youth player in Argentina. "I'm never going to do that again. I don't know what happened. I've done it a million times. If I would have known I never would have done it."
Even worse, his goal was disallowed for offsides.

Double ouch. All for nothing. He could be out six weeks.
"It's a little mind-boggling,'' RSL coach Jason Kreis said.
Not as mind-boggling as Galaxy midfielder Bryan Jordan, who later did a back-flip after a goal.

That's like seeing someone get shot, and then going hunting with Dick Cheney...
