Something odd happened in the waning moments of FC Dallas’ 1-0 win at home over the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Dallas defender George John leaped over his man to head home the winning goal, nothing out of the ordinary other than the fact it eventually sent the defending champion Galaxy to their first defeat of the season. FC Dallas also moved atop the Western Conference Standings.
Seconds after John scored, he was prone on the ground, as if taken out by the infamous “invisible sniper.” Replays showed he was brained by a foreign object, which was later determined to be a beer can.
This is strange since a) Dallas was playing at their home park in Frisco, Texas, and b) this is America — you don’t see that kind of stuff in any sport, let alone soccer.
Full marks to John for being able to laugh off the incident, which left his head bloodied. He told ProSoccerTalk about the experience.
“It was (Bud) Lite. Lime. And that thing must have been full, because it hurt!”
Remember kids, friends don’t let friends drink Bud Light Lime.
