Saturday's Campeonato Paulista soccer match in Brazil between Ponte Preta and Atletico Sorocaba was delayed by a swarm of bees that congregated on one of the crossbars. The match was delayed for 15 minutes while beekeepers were called in to capture the swarm of bees and spray the area with some chemicals to keep the bees from coming back. Once the match finally got started, Ponte Preta won 2-1. H/T BI. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
