New strategy to protect the net.

Hilarious strategy for a free 12th man on the field:
Bring on the water guy (and you gotta love the fact he won’t touch the ball with his hands!).

Sassiness will be punished by electrocution.

Man is tasered for arguing about speeding ticket. And he didn’t even get to yell, “Don’t tase me bro!”
