It’s no secret that soccer is much more popular overseas than it is in America. Soccer fans in other countries are like Eagles fans: ignorant and violent.
So naturally, the lack of tickets to a Southeast Asian tournament would angry up the blood. To wit:
Success-starved Indonesia soccer fans, desperate to watch the final of a regional tournament against rivals Malaysia, set a ticket booth on fire at the national stadium in Jakarta ahead of the game Monday.
Police doused the flames and fired warning shots in the air, scattering a crowd of thousands of supporters who were unable to get into the Bung Karno stadium, with a capacity of 88,000, after tickets quickly sold out.
Bung Karno? I’ll bet that stadium smells like ass.
