I’ve been around the league to alot of different games in alot of different stadiums and being a rider fan I’ve seen some pretty bad things from fans.
But as I was at the Eskies-Bombers game tonite, I saw something which totally disgusted me. A middle aged man with his 2 preteen kids who have season tickets showed up as usual. The guy is usually a loud mouth jackass, but I typically just blow that off. The start of the 1st qtr, the guy stands up and whips out, I kid you not, 3 mickeys of booze and fills the coke he bought at the vendor. I’m pretty sure he wasnt afraid to load up some random kids around him with some sauce either. Not the first time I have seen him do this. Anyways, blah blah blah, we get to the 3rd qtr and the man steals a bag of peanuts from someone sitting nearby and proceeds to throw peanuts at random people sitting in the rows in front of him, trying to them in the head to make his kids laugh. This goes on for the entire 3rd qtr and people are really starting to get pissed off. When they turn around to see the idiot who is throwing things is, the man proceeds to point to a kid about 20 yrs old in sitting just in front of him.
Finally the kid catches on and turns around and says to the guy VERY politely, “Listen man, could you please not do that, people are givin me dirty looks and I dont feel like pissing anyone off here, I just wanna watch the game.” The man says to the kid, “Ah, whatever, I’m not too worried about it, if you wanna blame me you can, but they already think its you.” And turns to his kids and starts laughing. Keep in mind this guy is 3 sheets to the wind drunk at this point and really annoying. So the kid who is taking the blame’s friend turns back the the guy and says “Listen Buddy, why dont you F#$%^@% grow up already.” The man proceeds to lose it and starts callin the kid on. The kid turns back to the game to ignore him and the man whips a few peanuts at the kids face now. Unbelievable.
Well when all was said and done, I looked under the man’s seat to see a pretty nice collection of empty mickeys and which I had no doubt that he was piling the kids into the car for the long drive back to Spruce Grove.
If anyone should happen to be sitting in or near Section U at Commonwealth, specifically Row 20 Seat 11 and see a fat, bald, drunk loser with a mustache throwing peanuts at your head. Don’t hesitate to say hi to him or even better give him a forearm shiver to the face.
Sorry for the long story, add comments please.
