In addition to the above video documenting the worst own goals in Premier League history, here are some other things I've found funny lately.

Fresh off watching his Inter Miami franchise lose its inaugural match to LAFC at Banc of California Stadium back on March 1, the legend that is David Beckham made an appearance on Ellen to chat about his wife, kids, club ownership and the time he went trick-or-treating at Justin Bieber’s house.
In his quest to replace Zlatan Ibrahimović at the LA Galaxy, Javier “Chicharito” Hernández certainly got off to a quieter start than the Swede. While Zlatan instantly endeared himself to America with a spectacular brace against LAFC in El Tráfico, Chicharito was held to just one shot in the Galaxy’s 2020 season opener against Houston.
It’s a tactic that’s frequently implemented during elementary school recess, but its application at the professional level is far less pronounced: After a quick throw-in during a match in Romania between Makedonija Gjorce Petrov and Akademija Pandev, a defender chased after play with a spare ball in his hands before throwing it at the feet of the attacking player and knocking the live ball away.
Goalkeepers make mistakes. It’s going to happen from time to time — more often if you’re a Kepa, less often if you’re an Oblak — and it’s going to be costly.
For David Raya, a Spanish keeper playing for EFL Championship side Brentford, his time came in the first half of a match against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday. In a match Brentford was dominating, Raya inexplicably allowed a long ball send forward by Hull defender Ryan Tafazolli to skip under his feet and into the back of the net.
We don’t know who this goalie is, but we want him on our team. We here at The18 are all for these types of goalkeeper mind games.
This keeper takes shithousery to a new level. He doesn’t give a fuck about decorum. He just wants to get in your head.
And it worked.
Facing a penalty kick, this keeper just hoofs the ball away before the opponent can take his kick.
Sure, he got a yellow card for his efforts — a slice of cheese per the Aussie lingo. But when the Mix Diskerud-wannabe finally took his spot kick, it was a tame attempt, easily saved by the keeper.
