Soccer game revelry
Today I learned... that at Russian soccer games fans in the stands light flares and shoot off fireworks.
Take a look at this related video, offered with this introduction: "Try watching a Red Star V. Partizan match... Until they banned flares and fireworks the matches usually got shut down because the field got too smokey to continue play. "This is what it looks like after banning flares and fireworks." -
Response: "do you mean before?"
Reply: "No. That video is from several years after the ban was instituted."
I'll defer commentary and just file it in the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot category. Res ipsa loquitur.
