"Could it be that they would also, like the dogs, dive more to the right?"

-- Shaul Shalvi on the hypothesis that goalkeepers tend to dive right in penalty-kick shootouts. She and a team of psychologists at the University of Amsterdam studied penalty-kick shootouts and found that when their teams were down, goalkeepers were more than twice as likely to dive right as dive left. When teams were tied, goalkeepers dived left and right equally. Dogs have been found to unconsciously move to the right when they approach something they really want. (NPR)
