Stefon and Soccer
Okay, SNL's Stefon (as portrayed by Bill Hader) actually doesn't have anything to do with this post, but based on the way the author of the original article presented it, only Stefon could make it work.
Back in early 2017, a soccer match in Brazil turned into a brawl. That brawl then turned into a potpourri of other things. Follow me as I introduce this brawl as Stefon...
"This brawl has everything: riot police, tear gas, fans playing tug-of-war over a banner..."

Laughs aside, though, take a look at the clip at the brawl between Gama and Brasiliense. Ultimately, after the players started fighting, the fans followed suit in a mass looting spree that would have made old-fashioned pillagers jealous. "Let's rip this banner down and hope nobody else wants it!"
I don't even know if words can properly describe what happens with the exception of stating that if you had a fear of traveling outside your comfort zone, then you definitely shouldn't head south.
