This is almost as satisfying as that time Fidel Castro went face-first into the floor.
The proverb is ‘Pride goes before a fall’, right? And fall he did.
The background about what’s happening here makes it even funnier. Putin — like the little guy from North Korea — has the media play up his physical prowess.
Kim Jong Un’s press claims he hit a hole in one the first time he swung a golf club, for instance. Putin has his various shirt-off photo ops playing up just how ‘manly’ he is.
And he plays hockey, too. Amazing how a man in his sixties somehow ‘dominated’ on the ice against actual athletes in their prime, isn’t it?
It’s an annual tradition for Russian President Vladimir Putin to put up absurd points in an exhibition hockey game. It’s also an annual tradition for the citizens under his rule to shut up and say nothing about it except that, wow, this 66-year-old sure holds his own against former professional players.
Putin put a snowman on the scoreboard today. A cool eight goals. The next highest-total on his team was three goals. One can understand why teammates would be more than willing to share the puck with Vlad. Sometimes it’s important to make business decisions.
But all his ‘skillz’ on the ice ring more than a little hollow when you see him in this clip.
Russian President Vladimir Putin took a fall as he waved to the crowd during an ice-hockey game in Sochi. He scored eight goals during the exhibition match in what has become a yearly tradition. https://t.co/x0mN62qQoY pic.twitter.com/l6XCRrwsIB

If he’s such a ‘prodigy’ on the ice, how come he can’t even manage to stay on his feet?
And in case you somehow missed the Castro faceplant from back in the day, someone out there even set it to music for ya!
