Jose Mourinho Gouges Someone's Eye During Barcelona-Real Madrid Brawl

With Barcelona leading Real Madrid by a goal on Wednesday, Real's Marcelo made a dirty tackle from behind on Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas. The tackle drew an immediate red card on Marcelo, but that didn't stop a brawl between the clubs from breaking out. And then the inevitable -- Real manager Jose Mourinho gouging someone in the eye -- happened.

We'll see if any further penalty for the kerfuffle comes down the pike, or whether the poor soul assaulted by Mourinho's middle finger will be able to see another Spanish sunset. In the meantime, the Blaugranas took a 5-4 victory in the aggregate.
