The Lore of a Weber One Timer.

The way the announcers reacted and brought up the goal against Germany 4 years ago got me thinking.

What is the history of his shot? aside from the shear power and velocity behind it. Not to mention ho hard it really is. What has he done with it?

Well lets start the list (if anyone has gifs of them please add them in)

1) The goal against Germany going through the net.

2) Game tying goal against ANA.

3) Opening night against Columbus a couple years ago where he hit the goalie in the head and took his helmet clean off.

4) The fact that Coaches will not play their best players on the PK against him for fear of injury.

5) The countless times a guy has had a leg/ankle/foot/arm/body part injured by it.

6) His windup can silence even the loudest crowd at Bridgestone because we all know that is going to happen next.

Any more feel free to add them

I felt this warrented its own post and I know I am missing a lot but I am also curious to see what you guys think of it and what stories or memories you have.
