When Phil & Buck are in the basement playing darts, Buck throws a bullseye, then pulls his darts from the board, thus leaving the board free of darts. Phil's first ensuing throw lands in the neon sign, breaking it. Buck throws his dart and lands a bullseye, but there are two other darts in the bullseye circle in the close-up.

Factual errors 

During a normal soccer game, players are not allowed to kick the ball up to and behind their necks and "carry" the ball in that manner. Also when the player lifted his team mate to head the ball into the goal is not allowed. Either of these infractions fall into dangerous play or unsportsmanlike behavior resulting in a yellow card (warning) or red card (ejection from game)
