VIDEO: Robbie Keane, the Irish magician, does magic tricks on a plane | THE SIDELINE

From time to time, LA Galaxy forward Robbie Keane does something so spectacular that you are left wondering what you just saw, thinking, "How did he do that?"

After seeing the above video of Keane performing "magic" tricks on a recent Galaxy team flight, one may now explain such goals and astonishments as Keane Magic.

Sure, he didn't exactly pull a literal rabbit out of a hat or anything — and the entire thing could be a hoax with cards tagged for purpose — but when he speaks so assuredly in that Irish accent and shrugs his shoulders, as if to say, "What? That? No big deal," you want to believe him.

No truth to the rumors that Keane's 198 career goals in all competitions for club and country tested positive for Magic-Enhanced Curses, though.
