Greek Soccer Coach Gets Full Soda Cup to the Face

Monday March 3rd, 2014


European soccer rivalries are just like major American sport rivalries, except with riot police and coaches getting full coke cups to the face. Yiannis Anastasiou, coach of Panathinaikos, was having a pretty good day -- beating rival Olympiakos 2-0 -- when a rival fan threw the beverage (with ice!) at the opposing coach.

I'd suggest the Greeks adopt the American method for discouraging such behavior: charging people their entire life's savings for one in-game drink.
