Adrenaline, man, it can get you.

A heated rivalry took a lot out of both teams, and LAFC coach Bob Bradley was in no mood for anything but positivity after a 5-3 win over the LA Galaxy on Friday.

Asked by ESPN reporter Sebastian Salazar about Vela’s outstanding game in relation to some of his previous big game performances, Bradley tore into the reporter for asking about it.

Bradley criticized Salazar’s line of questioning, asking “Who asked those questions?” before telling the reporter twice to “Get lost” and walking away from the interview.

It was an ornery and unnecessary response from a respected coach who’s usually able to control himself. Maybe it’s all the LAFC black that’s made him embrace some sort of villain role, but it wasn’t cool.

Unfortunately for Bradley, a USMNT legend coming off an incredible season, Salazar brought the "#receipts.”

Bradley himself asked those questions of Vela’s big game acumen, and Salazar was simply inviting the coach to say his star had answered all doubters.

It was a grooved pitch down the heart of the plate. And Bradley threw his bat at the pitcher.
