I don't want to sound all high and mighty with my views on the 2008 Cubs-Sox intergalactic clash, but seriously! The number of arrogant pigs who go to these games are just astounding. I'm sure you have all seen (and if you haven't, I'll link the youtube video(s)) the video of some clown in a Jim Thome jersey beating another fan (his allegiances are not clear) senseless. All of this took place in front of hundreds of other fans who did nothing except watch and cheer. It is a truly disgusting scene when grown idiots have to bulrush 12 and 13 year olds so they can get a lick on the poor sap who likely just cleverly mocked the opposing team. Why can't cooler heads prevail?
Also, despite what you might think, it is NOT ok to mock and harass an opposing team's fan when that individual cannot even get into an R rated movie without his/her mom. It is no wonder why parents refuse to bring they're kids to these games. Why would anyone want his/her child in that type of environment?
I would go as far to suggest that this interleague "rivalry" crap is not only a detriment to baseball, but to society as well. We have truly become a pathetic group of pigs!
