10 Of The Most Bodacious Moments In Sports History

10 Of The Most Bodacious Moments In Sports History
By Conor Neville

The only word one could use to accurately describe Erik Lamela's goal last night was bodacious (defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as 'audacious in a way considered admirable - Bill and Ted have yet to formally deconstruct the word).

It is for these bodacious moments that people love sport. Here's a selection of some of the weirdest, most exotic and brilliant things that have been witnessed on a sports field.

Brian Corcoran's point from his knees - Munster semi-final 2004

Had barely touched a hurl in two years. No matter.

Simon Zebo flick - Wales v Ireland, 2013

The crowd were still oohing and aahing at the big screen minutes later.

Brian O'Driscoll's (possibly illegal) loop over Denis Hickie - Leinster v Ulster 2006

That's a new one now.

Pele's dummy against Uruguay - 1970 World Cup

Bodacious in the early 70s, and still bodacious now. The fact that he missed afterwards doesn't away from it. In fact, to the romantics out there, it only makes the whole thing more beautiful.
