Corinthians Ball Man Disappears Into A World Of Pain After Being Touched

Corinthians defeated Universidad de Chile in the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana matchup, but the real story was a heroic ball man inside the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo.
An overzealous Universidad de Chile player was eager to get the ball back with his side losing 1-0 and halftime fast approaching. The valiant ball man, in his own way, eventually obliged.
But then he got brutally touched right in the heart. We don’t know what happened then. Judging by his facial expression it looks like his heart simply broke.
He twisted into the ground like some kind of depressed drill bit, boring downwards with the look of smelling fresh cat piss on his face.
In the stands, Corinthians supporters wanted to avenge the demise of their poor ball man, but the Universidad de Chile supporters were simply too intimidating to risk a full frontal assault.
