DTotD: Tackle whiff leads to ball whiff

Brooks Peck
Dirty Tackle

Some of you might argue the classification of this as a "dirty tackle" since the kid in yellow and green leaps over the attempt at a leg sweep like a grasshopper. But! Even more painful than that tackle would've been had it connected is the ensuing, body-contorting whiff from the grasshopper kid. Maybe not in the physical sense, but in the pride department. Until he realizes he could be the next Robin van Persie.

Anyway, this clip has a certain grace to it. It's like a ballet.
