You've heard of fans rioting in the streets after their team wins a championship. Well, in Glasgow, Scotland, fans rioted in the streets because a giant television screen that was showing a key soccer game went out during the action.

(UPDATE, 11:47 a.m.: Mike, of Mokena, Ill., e-mailed us the following: "The rioting was actually in Manchester England where the UEFA Cup final was taking place. The fans came down from Glasgow for the match.")
