Italian Handball Player Drops Pants, Grabs Junk During Match

Apparently handball is a big deal in Italy—they have leagues and everything. At a recent match, Pasquale Maione gave opponent Ivan Stuffer a little smooch on the court to psyche him out.  An enraged Stuffer pushed Maione on the ground, and when the crowd booed him, Stuffer dropped his shorts and grab his nuts.

Stuffer, who plays for Briskena, was suspended for two games for the testy response, but there’s no word on whether Maione was penalized for his kiss, clearly aimed at provoking his opponent.

    I would have done the same thing, push me a few times, chest bump and then kiss me? No Ma’am

    MikeE, you beat me to it. Hand ball, indeed.

    Who knew it was a team sport?

    We live in a world where kissing someone’s cheek totally spools them. Check.

    He seemed to be enjoying the attention from the crowd.

    I wonder how the crowd would have reacted had Stuffer kissed him back? I would love to have seen the expression on Maione’s face after he hit the deck.
