Oh...! what? Nobody could hear what Goalkeeper Lawrie Leslie was saying as he drove his fist into the turf of a soccer field in West Ham, England, and it was probably just as well. As the smaller pictures show, Leslie, a lithe 26-year-old Scot, had done his utmost to guard his goal. But in the attempt to block an opponent's kick, Leslie mistimed his horizontal dive. The ball skittered around him and bounced into the net. Not even bothering to raise himself from the hostile ground, Goalkeeper Leslie unleashed his passionate self-reproach in frustrated gesture and one or two, or maybe even three, words of bitter disappointment.
