Calle is from Sweden, and he's pretty sure that when everybody hears that they picture peaceful little villages, beautiful countryside, and perfect story book visions. But that's not the way things are there - they're just like everywhere - his friends act dramatic and crazy on social media, his parents went through a really tough divorce, full of anger and trouble, with fight after fight, and he's in college and full of anxiety and stress, and trying not get beaten down by all the work and social pressure. He ended up having some anger problems of his own.
Even with his roommates and friends around the stress would get to be too much and he felt like he couldn't do anything to release the anxiety and fury and anger that just sort of bubbled up. So, instead of saying again "anger problems got me in trouble" and blowing up on all his friends and making a mess of his school work he decided to get tickets to a football game, or, soccer as it's called in America.
Calle got to the game, and he took his seat - which just happened to be there among all the football fans who were rooting for the other team - a little late but he didn't care, he was just happy to be out somewhere that he could yell and scream and get a little healthy anger management.
Calle's team scored a goal and that made him super happy and excited - he cheered loudly and got a lot of dirty looks from the other fans there at the soccer game. Everyone on the other side of the stadium, where Calle should have been was cheering and screaming and going crazy, and everyone sitting around him was boo'ing and howling and getting angry, and nothing's worse than angry fans.
But then, the football game took a turn and Calle's team was losing - down by one - and so while the fans around him were happy and cheering, Calle was mad and yelling insults at the other team. There was a big bearded tough guy sitting nearby - a fan of the opposing team - and he started giving Calle mean looks. Calle was caught up in the drama and excitement and competition - and he started yelling and swearing at the big guy. That wasn't so smart. He had seen lots of fan fights on TV and at other matches, but even with his anger management problems he never imagined he would ever get beaten up in a fan fight.
Then, out of nowhere - and this is the true scary part - that big angry fan threw a bottle at Calle and it hit him hard in the head. He'd never been attacked by anyone before, and certainly never beaten up, but he felt pretty sure that that was what was about to happen. He was super scared, and he was right.
The big angry football fan punched him right in the stomach, really hard, and he was practically knocked out from the punch. Thankfully the security guards came and took the guy away before he could beat Calle up even worse.
Of all the scary stories, the scary true stories out there, this one was truly bad - when Calle got the hospital he found out that the bully had punched him so hard that he had damaged his kidney - it almost exploded - and he needed emergency surgery to repair it. When he woke up after the operation, the surgeon told him he was lucky to even be alive, and that's what scared Calle the most, what could have turned his story into a real horror story.
It turned out that Calle actually knew the big hairy guy who had beaten up him in that football (soccer) fan fight - it was a guy who lived in a town nearby, and so he went to apologize and ask forgiveness for starting the whole thing. And they made up.
Really, Calle's anger got him into real trouble, and could have cost him his life. He said it himself - My Anger Got Me Into Trouble and Beaten Up.
