David Beckham 1, assholes in Toronto 0.

I didn't see the interview after the game, but I saw the empty can land near him.

The streamers are harmless, but throwing cans is just fucking stupid.

I was pulling hard for TFC, but I wasn't too upset when Beckham assisted on the tying goal and then gestured to the crowd of morons.

I don't get it. Did Beckham burn Toronto down to the ground or something? Or was this just good ol' assholery on TFC fanboi's part?

Dustin Johnson's errant shot hits a TV tower.

Beckham is the most famous soccer player in the world, playing for the defendingchampions, against a team with a rabid fan base (seriously), in the most important game in TFC history.

I still don't get it. Why would a fan in the stands throw shit at players on the field? I'm of the understanding that life is quite good in Toronto, so why the entitled sports fan anger?
