I am not a big fan of soccer and a lot of that can be traced back to the fact that I absolutely awful at the game. I am so bad that it has jaded me against the sport. However, I am glad that I never had to play in Iran where people decide to throw grenades onto the field.
Yes, that is a soccer player picking up a piece of debris and throwing it off to the side. Not one second later, the grenade explodes. Yeah, that is also a good reason to never play soccer. The fans are absolutely crazy.
Luckily no one was hurt in this incident and the police are investigating this incident. I have no idea what would possess someone to throw a grenade onto a soccer field but they must have been trying to make a statement. I think that statement comes across loud and clear.
I mean, think of how close this was to being an outright disaster. We almost witnessed a guy have his hand blown off due to some idiot throwing a grenade on a field. That also raises further questions. What kind of person brings such a thing to a game and how in the heck did they get their hands on a grenade? It is a little bit scary if you ask me.
I can not imagine that we will find a video this surreal for the rest of the day. If things start exploding during a baseball game, we might be in trouble.
