This is what it looks like to get drilled in the face with a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty shank

There is an upside and a downside to close-up seats at any sporting event. The upside is that you get best possible perspective on the game. The downside is the game sometimes gets the best possible perspective on your face, at like 60 miles per hour.
