Photographer and former football coach, Luc A. Menard captures uplifting moments to share on his popular Instagram account, beautifulsoulsinnyc.
In this article featuring 70-year-old taxi driver George Papoutsis – georgethemessie – the exhilarating moment is provided by George’s silky-smooth skills.
“70 year old taxi driver with @timberland hit CRAZY shot and ran through the streets.”
He wasn’t even wearing sneakers. As Luc pointed out, he wears Timberland boots.
