In which Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Pirmin Schwegler is struck on the cranium by a wayward till roll, catapulted from the stands by the St. Pauli fans in the 2. Bundesliga last night, only to hit the deck like he’d just been picked off by Vassili Zaitsev as he made his way through the rafters at the Millerntor…
Granted, till rolls are dense, compact little lumps and it doubtlessly would’ve smarted – but a clean knock-out? Even the man himself admitted it didn’t hurt after the game, and that he went down because he was ‘surprised’. Give me strength.
By the way, If this is all sounding a bit familiar and deja vu-y to you, might I suggest you have a butcher’s at this.
