Not Purdue related but...

Thought some people might want to see this.

It's Dani Alves on Barcelona, and in an away game today at Villarreal racist fans threw a banana at him and he just picked it up ate and and continued to play. It was a pretty cool moment and a great way to deal with the racism. It got a lot of international attention and got like 250K tweets about it on twitter but I know American media won't mention it cause all the Sterling racism and playoffs so I just though I'd share.

Also after the game in his interview he thanked the fans for giving him the banana to give him the energy to cause the 2 (Villarreal) own goals that led to a Barca win.

Edit: I thought the vine autoplayed in my preview but I guess it doesn't when I publish it, sorry. The link still works though.
