Some fans wave signs or flags at the game. Others paint their faces. And then there are those who apparently cause tiny earthquakes when their team scores.
The University of Leicester in the U.K. discovered soccer fans have actually been celebrating with so much energy when the Leicester City F.C. Foxes score that it's caused spikes in seismic activity.
The largest of these mini earthquakes was recorded when the Foxes scored a game-winner in the 89th minute of a match against Norwich on Feb. 27.
