World Cup: Costa Rica goalie Keylor Navas can stop tennis balls too (Video)



Thanks to Tim Howard’s heroics in USA’s loss to Belgium, goalies are now front-and-center in the sports world. Every goalie is now going to be flashing his skills on the internet.

Today, we see Costa Rica’s goalie Keylor Navas swatting down tennis balls.

This has absolutely nothing to do with playing soccer, but dang…that guy sure can swat down tennis balls.

He should make a whole series out of this. Keylor Navas swats down stuff. What else would you like to see Keylor Navas swat down?

Flying meat cleavers? Yes, it’s dangerous, but also awesome. How about arrows? Can a world-class goalie stop arrows?

Let’s get Jennifer Lawrence aka Katniss Everdeen out there with a bow and see if she can fire one past Keylor Navas. This has “Jimmy Fallon bit” written all over it. It also has potential tragedy written all over it but that’s the price you pay for an awesome goalie exhibition.

If Navas survives Jennifer Lawrence firing arrows at him, he could try knocking down flaming balls of crap. Messy but a lot of fun. We could hire the Mythbusters to make a flaming-crap-ball cannon.

So many possibilities. Why stop with tennis balls?
