The One With The Scary Belgian Ball Boy

Every so often you stumble upon something that makes you concerned for the future, something that shakes you to your core and keeps you up at night. This video isn't that, but it comes pretty close.

Here we have a ball boy from a game in the Belgian Jupiler League, where small-side Lierse was attempting to hold power-players Anderlecht to a 1-1 draw. Anderlecht's 'keeper went for a ball behind his goal only to meet this menacing ball boy, who refused to give Silvio Allaj Proto the ball, forcing him to get it himself. Not only did the kid stare down the goalkeeper, he also provokes him and acts like he wants to fight the guy. 

After the game (which ended at 1-1), the boy wasn't done with Proto and decided to wait for the Anderlecht goalkeeper by the tunnel. Maybe the Dynamo should pick up this kid as their next hard man.

In fact, I'm pretty sure this kid is the next Vinnie Jones.


Vinnie in his prime.
