â†µPhillips was quite upset, and in the ensuing shoving match with Aguirre and other members of the Mexican team both he and Senor Crotchmasher were ejected with red cards from the match. The largely pro-Mexican crowd rendered their verdict by getting into fights and throwing beer at Phillips, who left the game in a protective amoeba of policemen. Then, in the three words that make any story both believable and more entertaining, it got worse. Panamanian striker Blas Perez, the scorer of Panama's lone goal, went down in the 90th minute. â†µâ†µ
â†µA moment of applause for Chris Duncan of the Associated Press, because sometimes the funniest things require no embellishment whatsoever. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Perez was injured on the field in the 90th minute and medical staff brought out a stretcher. As Perez was carried off the field, Mexican fans unleashed another barrage of cups and beer bottles and Perez fell off the stretcher. â†µâ†µ
â†µAnd now go have the rest of what has started out as a fantastic Friday just because you have seen this first. â†µâ†µ
