Tavares... World Class Goal

In case you missed it during Tuesday night's exhibition game between Canada and Slovakia (7-0 final), forward John Tavares scored an absolutely incredible goal. I've seen a lot of goals in my 37 years but very few have brought me out of my chair like this and then had me making double and triple takes to make sure I actually saw what I thought I'd seen.

I'm sure there will be better versions of it available on line before long but here it is courtest TSN if you haven't seen it yet:

Not only does he bat the goal in but he first bats it to him himself from behind the net to where he can whack it a second time into the gaping cage. Oh and he's trying to keep his balance doing it.

I'm sorry but that is just ridiculous.
