Watch: Rob Ford Drills a Soccer Ball at a Kid

Saturday April 12th, 2014

Toronto mayor Rob Ford's political life may be a hot mess, but his soccer shot is looking pretty sharp.

Taking part in a youth soccer event at Soccerworld Polson Pier in Toronto, Ford drilled two penalty kicks -- at full speed, no less -- past a young goalie. (Ford's unofficial motto is "Go big or go home.")

For what it's worth, the mayor apologized to the kid afterward for kicking the ball so hard and then called him his buddy. I am sure he will cherish this moment forever.
