And of course today is no exception.
It seems that Sir Alex Ferguson (yes, that means he's a knight), who is the manager of Manchester United, was on his way to attend a 9/11 charity event in London on Monday to raise money for families of those killed in the terrorist attacks......when he was attacked by a man at a train station. According to The Mirror, the guy was "yelling football-related abuse." Oh you classy English soccer fans. You couldn't possibly be more subtle.
A British Transport Police spokesman confirmed that the 65-year-old manager suffered leg injuries. Sir Alex, however, still attended the event. Why? Because he's a f*cking soldier, that's why. No, seriously I salute him for attending the event.
In all honesty, I find it amazing this doesn't happen more often. Nick Saban should probably have been killed about 32 times by now.
