Uh. Isn't that his job. I'm pretty sure that happens on the regular.

too soon to make a really off color joke?

doesn't really look like he acted quick or even saved much of that fall.

the damage is already done when the head and neck hit.

So apparently they've never watched gymnastics before. Like, ever?
There are always spotters there for the big releases. You just never notice unless the gymnast misses.

Was there UFIA involved (I only because, you know, gymnastics)?

Nasser will make sure that nothing's prolapsed.

That's a pretty run-of-the-mill Dad Catch.

Yeah, however he didn't molest the boy, then made a powerpoint presentation of why he had to.

True to form he ignores the head/neck impact to grab the ass

The damage is really done when you put your foot on their neck and mash their skull in with a couple blows from a poleaxe.

By keeping his mat clear of knights, gladiators, orcs, and other poleaxe weilders, he's keeping those children safer than they'd be elsewise.

Remember the '86 Olympics in Moria?

And apparently sadistic fingerbanging mixed with a touch of "oh hell no, white boy"

It looked to me like the kid had it. It was going to hurt but he was falling in a way he wasn't going to hit head first

Nice vertical video, I said sarcastically.

Wow, what are the odds that he was in the right place at the right time?
