Today's Knowledge: Holy water used regularly in football

No, I'm not talking about American football. I'm talking about the game in which you actually use your FEET to play, a.k.a. soccer.

Anyway, I don't know if it's holy water, water from the fountain of life, or just your run of the mill nectar of the gods, but whatever football training staffs use on their injured players, it works. Watch any football game and pay close attention the player who drops to the ground, contorts his face into a pained expression and rolls around in agony while clutching his "injury." The trainer will hurry over, talk to him a little, and then hose the alleged injury down with this healing liquid, which looks a lot like bottled water. The player then calms down and continues with the game.

I still love football, but come on.
