[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] The nice thing about this dreadful miss in the Israeli third division is that it gives us an excuse to revisit one by Ronny Rosenthal in 1992 that was even worse, and therefore more hilarious.

Moshe Biton plays for Maccabi Yaffo, which lost to Hapoel Katomon Jerusalem 2-1 last week. After seeing this clip, which has become quite popular, you’re going to know Yaffo should have scored at least twice.
