Soccer riot in Turkey - Editor's Choice - Picture of the Day - May 12, 2012

Nothing says Saturday football quite like a riot at a league championship final, does it?

Riot

A Fenerbahce soccer fan gestures as others throw items onto the field after the team's Turkish Super League, Super Final match against Galatasaray at Sukru Saracoglu stadium in Istanbul May 12, 2012. One fan was reportedly stabbed after the goalless match, while others broke off plastic chairs and threw them at police, who tried to use their shields to protect players. Flares were also tossed at police, who responded with pepper spray to disperse the angry fans. (Reuters/Osman Orsal)
