2013 was a wild year, to say the least. A 20-month-old baby was signed by a Belgian pro soccer club, Spain’s national team was rumored to be involved in a strip poker scandal while at the Confederations Cup, and on more than one occasion, referees were seen punching and kicking players. But none of those stories cracked our countdown of the best the blog had to offer. So without further ado, take a look back at the greatest, craziest, weirdest, and funniest stories of the year:

  5. Liverpool loanee Andre Wisdom got lost on his way to a home match and drove his Porsche straight into a giant mud pit.image
  6. Perhaps Wisdom wishes he had been loaned out to Dutch team NEC instead. The club offered players a free bikini car wash if they won the MOTM award as a new motivational ploy.image
  7. The world’s unluckiest goalkeeper (watch his series of bloopers) was charged with biting a man’s ear off.
  8. Speaking of keepers, a lower-division team in Slovenia came up with a new goalie drill:
