Since that to call "mine" is not permitted in soccer
, one must name the player to recieve the ball. When one forgets one's own name (often happening to a goalie
who has had one too many kicks to the head) yelling "Brendon's Ball!" is the same as claiming it for yourself. The "Brendon" was originally Brendon McCullum
, wicketkeeper for the New Zealand Black Caps
"Defence, defence, mark up, she's taking a shot!"
"Shit, never mind, mi- oh, Brendon's Ball!"
