    • Cheering that Michael Irvin is being carted off the field: Check
    • Having a jail in your Stadium: Check
    • Having a police officer killed during a game: never happened.

Friday’s during the derby game between Catania and Palermo a fan of one the teams threw a bomb into the car of an officer and killed him. Now the future of Italian soccer is up in the air as the season has been put on hold.
