Started from the top, now it's—ouch.
Sitting in the very last rows of a major stadium usually means you have no chance of interacting with the players on the field. Sure, you might start a wave, or even a chant that the rest of the stadium might hear, but glory is reserved for the people close enough to get hit by a ball or to insult a player about his weight gain.
That is, until this guy at Britain's Wembley Stadium achieved the dream of frustrated sports fans and third graders everywhere at a Peru-Britain match by throwing a well-crafted paper airplane (made out of some nice, thick, glossy paper—that's a good airplane right there) all the way from the bleacher seats to the side of Peruvian defender Hansell Riojas's head.
The accomplishment got a huge cheer out of the crowd, which was heartily deserved. However, this is soccer, so they probably would have also cheered if he had almost scored a direct hit and the game ended 0-0 between Riojas's head and paper airplanes.
Also, it's pretty impressive that Riojas didn't immediately fall down while holding his knee in agony. Way to tough it out, bro.
