Unlike His Groin, Michael Owen Doesn't Know When To Quit

The moniker Little Mikey Owen suggests oft-injured Newcastle star Michael Owen would have a nice disposition, cherubic in his innocence, and generally a likeable person. This video suggests otherwise.

Just watch as Owen dissects and demoralizes a poor, teenage Ginger in the Stoke City stadium. It's not so much that Owen has greater skills than the young goalkeeper. It's that he must gloat and celebrate every goal scored on a boy half his age.

Get in there!!!! Hilarious. Glad Owen is no longer in the England picture. I'd have bagged most of those. That kid looked frightened.

I get the same uncomfortable feeling watch that video as I do when I watch a woman meltdown on her kid in Publix: I want to turn away, but can't because the entertainment level is too high.

It's solely because he doesn't score in the EPL very often. I mean, he's got to celebrate somewhere, right?
