They're Passionate About Their Football in Egypt

If you think Super Bowl fans are fanatics, they got nothing on these guys:
Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets as supporters of Egypt’s biggest team, Al-Ahly, and thousands of revolutionary activists surrounded the interior ministry to protest against the worst footballing disaster in Egypt’s history.

The crowd, tens of thousand strong, called for the fall of the Army Council and for Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, de facto head of state, to be hanged.
Almost sounds like South Central LA after a Lakers championship.
