This old, angry knight got pizza'd by Cesc Fabregas

How angry would you have to be to use delicious, gooey, cheesy pizza as a weapon? If your first thought is, "I would never weaponize that sweet treat," then congratulations - you are a good person. Unfortunately, not all are like you.
In 2004, Arsenal visited Manchester United. They brought with them an unbeaten streak of 49 matches - quite impressive regardless of how much you know about soccer (pronounced "football" outside of the US). These teams had a bit of bad blood between them, basically battling as bewildered bystanders basked in their beauty. This time though, it spilled over to after the game.
We've already told you what happens (pizza toss, sorry, spoiler), but enjoy this journey into a seemingly fictional land where some fool would throw away such a delicious treat, all in the name of rivalry.

  • Pizza's a great projectile. A full pizza gives multiple tries, it's solid enough that I feel you could get sone decent force behind it, potential topping/sauce splatter, oil stains pretty much ruin whatever you hit

So I'm going to turn that "show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser" B.S. on its head. Show me a bad loser, and I'll show you a whiny little b@%ch.

  • This is such a painful watch. Really contrasts the difference between sports in the United States and elsewhere. Sports are purely corporate show over there. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. Stop. Commercial. Repeat. They’re on their phones for the entirety of the baseball and football games because there’s that little happening over the course of 4 hours (~10 minutes the ball is in play).

  • Yo! Long time listener, first time caller. I love what y’all do so much - it’s a damned public service to all who love sports - which is why I lovingly refer to you as Sportsball Nation! I think imma say that a rotten tomato would be the most insulting food. It’s a great projectile, depending on the thrower, it’ll travel with considerable velocity and it’ll kinda explode with nastiness on impact. There’s also the added sting of it being an iconic symbol of disrespect - and of course the smell. Sometimes you just can’t beat the classics.

  • I've heard of this incident before, and it was...quite weird to say the least. Throwing a pomegranate would be awful--not only are all the seeds are gathered together, but also if its full, the person would get knocked out in an instant. Or something that the thrower knows that their enemy is allergic too...but that would escalate quite quickly.

Real Madrid and Man Utd- Lakers, there is an attraction to these teams as their history is rich. Thierry Henry, Hakeem Olajuwon Messi- LeBron James Neymar-Iverson Ronaldo-Durant Cruyff-Jordan Tottenham Hotspur’s-Hawks, won in the 60’s but have nothing since and are on the rise
