    One less person kicking a soccer ball, seems like things worked out just fine.

    Oh yeah, RIP.

    Police said Palmer's soccer ball was recovered.

    I can't stop laughing at that statement.

    Also how was he going to dribble the ball through the Panama Canal?

    Based on the picture, looks like he was going to carry it - which is complete bullsh!t BTW. Wasn't the plan to "dribble the ball to Brazil?" not "Carry the ball and occasionally kick it when I'm bored". Defeats the whole purpose - you can't use your hands in soccer. He couldn't even be bothered to kick the ball during the photo op.

    This whole thing was flawed from the start.

    i'm afraid to walk on the side of most roads

    i won't cycle on them

    i suspect if i tried to kick a soccer ball in the shoulder with traffic, i'd be dead before 100 yards - if lucky
