Is this the worst penalty kick you've ever seen?

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Home to the 2014 World Cup and recognized worldwide as the rhythmic beating heart of the Beautiful Game, this weekend Brazil birthed a penalty kick so terribly terrific and wonderfully woeful so as to defy description, like Carnival gone wrong.

Today’s clip is presented with limited literary interruptions, like the Master’s, but without audience officiating.

Votuporanguense beat America Sao Paulo 2-0 in Brazil’s third division Sunday. The following penalty taken by America’s Rogerio Pilo was caught on tape. One of the best thing’s about today's short film is that you don’t have to feel guilty about laughing at the protagonist, because he’s the one drawing the "foul" in the box.

Rogerio Pilo, say hello to karma ...

    Haha he deserved to miss that for the dive but in his defense it looks like the penalty spot is a crater and the field has lots of them.
