Real Madrid wins the Copa del Rey trophy... and then runs it over.

I heard a story about a drunken Dallas Star trying to throw the Stanley Cup in a pool from three stories up and missing. I also remember some AHL team picking up the Calder Cup a few seasons ago and it completely falling apart. Neither are as good as this, though.

Self-promoting fact: I broke that story while interning at the Wall Street Journal's Dallas bureau. Vinnie Paul, the drummer for Pantera, told me Guy Carbonneau tried tossing the cup from a balcony at Paul's house into the pool and missed. Craig Ludwig backed up the story. First and last time I'll get to interview pro hockey players and a heavy metal band for the same story. :)

I guess the fact it's been eons (Well, you know, by Real Madrid standards and I'm sure that the standards for Real Madrid are very high to begin with) since anyone has held that trophy on Real Madrid may help explain why the guy had butterfingers.

This is the fail of the year.

No, your grammar is. It'd be failure of the year. Fail is a verb, not a noun.

Technically, it is a noun.

I meant the "fail" of the year like this. I really don't think it matters though, you get it.

Edit: I see Kevin W has cleared this up.

Oh, you're right. I didnt catch it the first time, but yeah, you were definitely referring to "a stockbroker's inability to deliver or receive security within the required time after sale or purchase." Sizemore, couldn't you tell?

Epic Obsolete, eh? Also, 14th definition?

He definitely meant to use epic failure.
