Professional footballers kick the ball hard and far. Now imagine getting hit in the head by one of those kicks.
Jessica Kastrop didn't have to imagine it because it happened to her during warmups of Bayer Leverkusen vs. Hoffenheim. And it was caught on video so everyone could see her pain, of course.
Being a pitch side personality is a dangerous gig. Unfortunately for Kastrop, she knows that all too well, seeing as she was hit four years ago before Mainz vs. Stuttgart.
What Stray Ball God did Kastrop piss off?
