The Last Angry Fan:
He’s young and impetuous, sometimes immature, and skillful at the beautiful game, but there’ something about Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli you might not know.
He’s a bit of a prankster.
Watch as Balotelli—following Man City’s 3-2 win over Southhampton—high fives a few young fans before grabbing a photographer’s camera and swiping the lens right off it. The 22-year-old then scurries off into the locker room, knowing that the female shutterbug can’t follow. She laughs off the prank, but the video ends with the photog letting out an exasperated groan, because I think she has her doubts as to whether or not Balotelli will return her (more than likely) expensive camera accessory.
It’s no flapping dickey or joy buzzer, but it’s not like Balotelli had a lot of time to plan anything…
Very low brow, but most good humor is these days.

I’m not sure we can consider this a total spaz out, but it’s noteworthy. Perhaps he was doing this in jest, perhaps he was not. The bottom line is there is going to be plenty more where that came from this season.
I have to be honest watching this makes me feel awkward. I don’t get it.
