Honestly, this video requires very little background. There’s a dad who took his kid to a soccer match (Everton vs. Lyon) for some bonding, then decided to up the ante on the experience by using his free hand to punch the Lyon goalie who ventured close to the stands during a fracas.
What makes this especially noteworthy is just how nonchalant the dad is.
Here’s the ridiculous clip:
Yep. That's an Everton fan with his child trying to hit a Lyon player. pic.twitter.com/px3PtMTSHm

Everton has issued a lifetime ban against the bad parent and bad fan. They’ve got his name, so it’s all but done at this point.
The entire incident, in which other fans were involved, is being investigated by police, but the action against the players will be determined by UEFA during a November 16th meeting.
To bring it all home, though…that dad’s crazy, right?
