President Barack Obama shows off his impressive soccer moves

Juggling a global financial crisis, a possible insertion in Syria (and not to mention being a father and husband) can’t be an easy task for anyone. But juggling a soccer ball? All in a day’s work for the POTUS.

Barack Obama dropped by a high school in New York and crashed the practice of the girls and boys soccer teams. The Commander-in-Chief deftly takes a first touch for a quick juggle before greeting the entire boys team.

When’s the last time a guy in slacks and dress shoes moseyed onto a high school practice field and elicited that kind of awesome reaction? Truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment, and a reminder to youngsters to stay in school:

What’s that? Lampard wasn’t enough for you? You want another 50-yard goal?

Okay, fine. Check out Luke Strebel’s last-minute winner for Father Ryan High School in the Tennessee SSAA Divison II-AA championship game in overtime. With the game tied at 1 and heading for penalty kicks, Strebel’s free kick from 54 yards took one awkward bounce in the six-yard box and landed it into the net to the dismay of Montgomery Bell Academy… and the school’s commentator.

On the other side, that lad Strebel won’t have to pay for another lunch at Father Ryan for the rest of his life. What a moment!
