Jolly Soccer Fan Gets a Photo Opportunity, That is All

Soccer fans are notorious for their strong rivalries, offering loyalty to favorite teams and passionate disapproval to others. And they often show their preferences in shocking ways. When Gabby Agbonlahor of the Aston Villa Football Club in Birmingham, England took a dramatic fall over the railing at a match on January 18, one fan of the opposing team had an interesting reaction:

Rather than try to assist the fallen player, the nearby Liverpool fans looked on with smirks. And one nonchalantly pulled out his camera for a photographic souvenir as Agbonlahor lay injured below. Fortunately, the athlete was not seriously hurt, but he was left unable to play in the rest of the game.
