Costa Rican national team manager gets into a fight in the stands

Coaching can be very stressful, and sometimes that stress boils over like it did tonight for Costa Rican manager Paulo Wanchope.

If you're not sure, Wanchope is the guy who pushes the little kid, shoves the guy next to him, and then proceeds to get his butt kicked.

Hard to imagine the coach of a national soccer team, especially a team in CONCACAF, getting into a physical altercation with someone. Oh, wait, no it's not.

Somebody should really explain to Wanchope that if you're going to pick a fight on television, you should pick a fight that you're going to win. Or at least one that you won't get completely embarrassed in. Otherwise you end up likely in trouble with your boss, and with a whole bunch of jokes heading your way.
