THE PITCH β€” It's been a wild year, and most of us are a little bit numb from all the drama and frustrations.

Which brings me to this goalie. He was playing in a highly competitive soccer game when something sparked an argument between him and a teammate named David Brekalo.

The two athletes rushed at each other and shared a mutual push. Then Brekalo decided to lash out a second time. Although his hands landed in the chest area, the goalie just couldn't handle the stress of it all and decided to hit the deck. Inexplicably clutching his face as though his eyes had just been gouged out, he plummeted to the ground.

While the scuffle was moderately intense, it wasn't that big of a deal. Pushing like this happens regularly in pro sports.

But the flop took it to a whole new level. Brekalo earned a red card for his actions, made all the more unique because it was his own teammate who oversold the contact.

I honestly can't blame the goalie. He put on a brave face as the drama began, but when push came to shove β€” literally β€” he was just ready to lie down and take a much-needed rest.

I feel the same way. After the craziness of 2021, this holiday season is just going to be one extended nap for me.
