PHOTO: Alvaro Fernandez Plays Role In Odd Headline-Picture Combination

I must have missed this on Saturday night, but at some point Alvaro Fernandez field goal kicked a Portland Timbers player in the groin. And at the exact moment Fernandez connected, a Seattle Times photographer snapped a picture, which would be funny on it's own and could be one of those iconic soccer picture.

But the Times took it one step further and slapped the picture on top of a headline that reads "This Is How Soccer Should Feel." The column, written by Steve Kelley, was actually about the environment at Qwest Field for Saturday night's derby match between the Timbers and Seattle Sounders, but when combined with the picture ... well, all sorts of different things come to mind


This had to be intentional.
