I have a hard time using binoculars because they don’t fit over my glasses very well. And if I take my glasses off to use them, my field of vision is just a blurry mess.
So yes, these strangely-clad people staggering around trying to play soccer while wearing binoculars are really funny... but where they merely whiff at the ball, I would throw out my universal joint at the first opportunity.
And have you ever seen a striped player wearing binoculars go down while clutching his universal joint? It's not pretty!
