Cera Overcomes Childhood Soccer Fear
Actor MICHAEL CERA finally faced up to his fear of soccer last summer (09), after years of avoiding the sport following a disastrous performance in a crucial childhood match.
The Superbad star admits he was scared off the field after scoring an own goal during an important youth game, and he only returned to the pitch last year (09).
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "It was a junior high school soccer game, and I jumped up and hit the ball with my knee, and it bounced straight over our goalie and into the net. I scored a goal for the other team. My team hated me. I'm a traitor. And I didn't play again until I faced the fear."
