Orlando Soccer Fans Boo Rick Scott Off Stage

Well, the possibility of a rival team in Miami wasn't the only thing that had soccer fans in Orlando booing last night. Rick Scott showed up to the announcement of the new Orlando MLS team and was promptly booed off stage.

This is not the first time Scott has been booed by sports fans. Back in 2011 he attended the Tampa Bay Ray's home opener and was promptly booed by the stadium.

He also got booed when he threw out the first pitch at a Yankees spring training game.

Granted, sports fans do enjoy a good boo-ing, but maybe Scott should stop giving them a chance to boo him.
