In the second half of Toronto F.C.’s MLS match against Atlanta United on Sunday, Jozy Altidore pushed a nifty goal past Brad Guzan to tie the score at 1.
It was a pretty nice play from the accomplished Toronto forward, but not everyone was impressed. As Altidore was celebrating his goal, he was forced to dodge a beer thrown by an apparently grumpy Atlanta fan. The 27-year-old veteran seemed to take the harassment in stride… as did teammate Sebastian Giovinco, who strolled over, picked up the plastic cup and took a swig.

Jozy Altidore scores, tries to head a beer thrown at him, Giovinco picks up the beer and drinks out of it. Amazing https://t.co/lM8l0sYPJU

Stadium beer is already gross enough, but stadium beer that has been sipped, spilled, thrown and picked off the ground sounds basically unbearable. But maybe when you’ve been running around a soccer pitch anything seems potable.
Atlanta United and Toronto F.C. wound up drawing 2-2, with Toronto’s second score coming on an 84th-minute goal from Giovinco. Apparently the booze didn’t hit him too hard.
