I have threatened suicide many times — the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber is the chief culprit — but I can't imagine this. A soccer fan in Rio de Janeiro climbed to the top of a stadium roof and tried to jump off, all because his favorite team, Vasco de Gama, was going to be demoted from the first league. Well, as long as you have a good reason. Dramatic video following the jump.

I hear that he was talked down by a San Francisco Giants fan. "You think you know regret? You think you know heartache? (produces Barry Zito jersey). You know nothing!"

Dig the reaction from the home fans when the man is wrestled into submission. My favorite part: The people below who try to fashion a team banner into a makeshift safety net. Nothing could possibly have gone wrong with that plan.
