Certified badass Kevin Richardson plays soccer with lions

Who can you go kick a soccer ball around with if all your friends are busy? If you’re Kevin Richardson, a pack of lions seems like a perfect choice.

The “Lion Whisperer” has taken his interaction with the intimidating creatures to a new level. Sure, he’s cuddled with lions, swam with them and even let them lick his “mane.” But playing soccer? Would YOU want to swing your foot at a lion with a soccer ball in it’s mouth? Didn’t think so.

Not to mention he takes on the ferocious animals while wearing a very sharp suit. If Richardson isn’t the coolest guy on the planet, we don’t know who is.

WARNING: We do NOT recommend trying this at your local zoo. It will not end well. At all. Stay away from the lions.
