After thoroughly dominating the track, Usain Bolt seems to be enjoying his retirement from the sport. Still just 32, and of course still blisteringly faster than most everybody else he’ll come across, Bolt is trying his hand at another sport, because why not?
On Thursday night, Bolt made his debut in pro soccer during a tryout with the Central Coast Mariners of the Australian A-League. If nothing else, it sure looked like he had a good time!
It doesn’t seem like Bolt had a particularly good debut, which is not at all surprising for someone playing his first ever pro game at the age of 32. Still, some viewers were able to find reason for optimism.
Who knows where Bolt’s football career goes from here — as he likes to say, anything is possible, and it sure would be neat if he wound up doing anything at all noteworthy in the sport. We, uh, just wouldn’t put any money on it at this particular moment.
