Actually..I hate to say it but some Red Sox fans certainly have been displaying a lack of class lately. SOME, not all, and I hesitate to call them Red Sox fans because they are closer to "People looking to party and break things who happen to like the Red Sox". Anyway, after their game one victory, a couple hundred students at the University of Rhode Island, where I attend myself, decided to burn dumpsters, flip over cars, throw bricks, and things of that nature. Now, I don't approve of it but I've at least HEARD of it happening in cities after teams win championships...but game one of the LCS? Come on now. Going even further than that, I don't know how much of this is true, but there were stories of a guy beating up his girlfriend cuz she was a yankee fan, any and almost all cars with yankee paraphenalia being vandalized, a brick to somebody's face, and two stabbings. Now thats just ridiculous no matter what the scenario. I dont know how much is true, but all rumors start from somewhere ya know?
Now, that being said, those are just some true assholes looking for an excuse to break stuff and tainted the Red Sox by doing it in their name...it's like the KKK showing up to support you for a political campaign. Those people are not the true Sox fans (that me and Trans are!
) and I hope that if anybody else has heard those stories that they did not make some gross generalization about red sox fans being awful people. I know thats not what you were doing wrveres, the "anybody else" im referring to is just the general public.
And as far as class goes...id say we are more "passionate and rowdy and spirited" than "classy"..classLESS though, I beg to differ. We yell alot of stuff but at least we dont throw cell phones or pagers at players or run onto the field and attack umpires and 1st base coaches. I realize thats just a few select morons, but you know what i mean.
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.
