Jose Mourinho Chucks Runner-Up Medal Into Stands After First Loss To Arsene Wenger
So there's this preseason soccer friendly in England called the Community Shield, in which the winner of the Premier League takes on the winner of the FA Cup -- this year being Chelsea vs. Arsenal. What makes this interesting is that Chelsea is coached by Jose Mourinho and Arsenal by Arsene Wenger, and the two hate each other with the passion of a thousand Capulets and Montagues.
Until Saturday's 1-0 win by Arsenal, Wenger had not beaten Mourinho is 13 previous meetings (seven losses and six draws). So when Wenger finally won, this happened:

Ha. Mourinho, who has a bit of a reputation as being a huge jerk, has this to say following the match (via World Soccer Talk): "I threw my medal to an Arsenal fan. I don't keep the medals when I win so you can imagine [what happens] when I lose."
Also, to BT Sport:
"We were the best team. We had more initiative, we controlled the game by having ball possession. Arsenal defended with 10 players, they put everybody in front of their own line and they had good organisation, congratulations to them."
In other words: "They scored and then sat in front of the goal the entire rest of the game, so screw them."
Mourinho, on the non-handshake:
