It’s been too long since we had a piece of general sports goofery as good as this GIF from the KHL.

Talgat Zhailauov was attempting to leave the penalty box when he failed to realize his stick was perpendicular to the door — meaning he clothleslined himself. It sounds so much more boring when I describe it that way, because this is an absolute delight.

It’s like that clip of the dog who tries to bring a really large stick on a bridge and can’t work it out.

I love everything about both of these clips.
