Pup Scores Game Winning Goal for Wrong Team
A Boston Terrier named Venus has a terrible night on the pitch yesterday.
The amateur soccer player was ecstatic after he scored a winning goal in the waning seconds of his match — until he looked up and saw his own goal keeper guarding the net he’d just scored on. The own-goal won the game for the opposing team and led fans to boo the puppy as he walked off the field.
"It was embarrassing, for sure," said Sheila Rizzo, the coach of the pup’s team. "The other lads were pretty upset with him and the fans were merciless. But we all went out for a few beers and it’s water under the bridge. We’re preparing for our next match."
