That is one thing I've never understood even as a kid, why would Charlie Brown's feet go flying forward causing him to land flat on his back? I realize if the football is pulled and your foot doesn't get the expected resistance you may stumble a bit, you may even pitch around and fall, but every single time? I don't buy it, I think I'd stay on my feet more often than not.
I'm not a kicker though, and haven't put this to the test, so maybe I'm just wrong. (Its also hard to experiment because if you expect the football to be pulled, you'll keep your balance, it has to be unexpected)
<ptp> how many emo kids does it take to change a lightbulb?
<Willy> HOW MANY?!
<ptp> none they just sit in the dark and cry
