Watch Eric Hassli's MLS Goal Of The Year

One might wonder, the first time one sees hockey or soccer, why the players don't bank goals in off the post at all times—the goalies can never save them. Here's one of the prettiest examples you'll ever see, from Eric Hassli of the Vancouver Whitecaps. From outside the penalty box, on a quick recovery, with an arc that leaves Kasey Keller looking, as ever, oafish, helpless.

It wouldn't be the MLS, though, if this game didn't end in a draw: Whitecaps 2, Seattle Sounders 2.
