Do you want to make your own Philadelphia joke or should I?  I’ll leave it to you.  The Philadelphia Union, a MLS team, was in Costa Rica for some warmup friendlies before the season started.  They were playing AD Belen and found themselves down 2-0 with about half of the first half remaining.

A potentially dangerous tackle from Philly’s Michael Farfan ignited a brawl involving punching, kicking, and soccer ball throwing.

Not exactly a good way to act as a guest in a country.  At least they’re passionate about the game.

Thanks to Deadspin for the video.
