Last season was the first time I can remember that I didn’t attend a Major League Baseball game. Ever since I was a kid, I remember going to County Stadium or Miller Park to watch my Milwaukee Brewers win. Or most likely, lose. Anyways, none of that is important because in a few weeks, I will be back at the ballpark to watch the Brewers take on the San Diego Padres! Obviously, with all the crap going on last year, it was impossible to attend live in person. Needless to say, I am ready!
Truth be told though, I know next to nothing about the Padres except the team likes to spend money…and not do much. Well, after a little bit of searching, it turns out they have a new claim to fame besides Tony Gwynn. it turns out they have one messed up fan who has serious issues. Drinking or otherwise…
Ladies and gentlemen, that is what NOT to do during a baseball game.
I do love the Colorado Rockies fans jumping to that poor dude’s defense though. When he wakes up from his cold sleep, he will thank them.
Root, root, root for the home team…but don’t knock out a fan if they are cheering for the road team. or in this case, the visiting club. Just makes no sense. The entire thing is laughable and ridiculous and quite sad. You see it all the time with the Philadelphia Eagles and their ‘fans.’ It is not cool nor does it make you tough or whatever. My family owns season tickets to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, and we see it every single year.
Clowns come in from opposing cities and purposely try to cause a stir cheering for the road team and just act like drunks. We are all sports fans, but some take the word ‘fan’ and turn that into ‘fanatic.’ Like in a BAD way. Going way too far and having no clear motivation or purpose, besides being an idiot in public. That was the Padres Dude and now when I watch them lose to the Brewers at the end of the month, I have an added incentive to root, root, root for the home team.
Drunken Padres Fan.
