You may have already been aware, but Iran is sort of a shitty country. It’s ruled by a crazed religious tyrant who wants to build nuclear weapons, their leaders hate America, it’s really hot there, etc. Apparently you can now add “Iran has psychotic, violent sports fans” to that list as well.
At a recent soccer match in Isfahan, Iran a fan threw a live grenade on the field because, you know, it’s Iran. This is a country where you can buy a grenade, walk two feet to your left, and buy a pound of dates.
Here’s the video in which the player picks up the grenade and casually tosses it aside, thinking it was just some random object thrown onto the field.
And here I thought that Ukrainian fans throwing bananas onto the field was bad. The most amazing thing about that video? No one flopped. I knew soccer players were full of shit.
