On the plus side, he managed to hold gravity to a tie by landing on the awning.

If you watched Sunday's US-Portugal World Cup match, you remember when Silvestre Varela scored with a header at the very last second, causing many people to feel like their heart fell through their stomach. Except for soccer super-fan Eric Corey, who felt (correctly) like his heart, stomach, head, legs and everything else were falling backwards out of a bar window as he reacted in shock. Thankfully, according to the Miami Herald, he's OK.
Corey is a member of the American Outlaws, who got their tough name by really, really liking soccer. He's also a regular at the bar from which he fell, Fado's Irish Pub in Miami, FL (yes, Florida - although Miami's kind of a substate within that nuthouse). The bar had opened up its floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper level, and Eric Corey used the opportunity to stand on the ledge and lead people on the street in cheers. As you might imagine, a bunch of guys holding beers and waving their arms around to people down below led to a very slippery floor right by the window.
