VIDEO: Real Salt Lake Player Tries to Start in-Game Snowball Fight During MLS Match

You all know that feeling on a Sunday, when during a match a player gets the better of you, so you attempt to launch a snowball at him.

Well, you probably don't...but that is exactly what happened during Real Salt Lake's game against Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS at the weekend.

With snow falling in Utah and the temperature below freezing, the scene was set for an extremely bizarre game. It was so bizarre, that Real midfielder Luis Silva decided to throw a snowball at his opponent which you can see in the video below.

After being left embarrassed for falling over in the snow, Silva gained his revenge by throwing a sneaky snowball at Whitecaps defender Tim Parker.

As you can see, Parker simply went about his business unfazed by the white missile. You can't help but wonder though, whether the defender would have reacted differently had it been a yellow snowball.
