Soccer fans will try almost anything to get into opposing players' heads.

Nasty chants, unflattering banners and, shudder, vuvuzelas are common practice. But flashing green lasers directed at a goalkeeper is a new high (or low).

During the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League Final, Club America's fans pulled out the classroom classic and targeted Montreal Impact goalie Evan Bush.


Bush didn't seem to react to the flashing lights, which focused on him whenever he touched the ball.
