I’ve said it before and, now, I’ll be forced to say it again: San Francisco fans may be the most dangerous in all of sports, this despite the fact that the national media like Albert Breer would have you believe that Philly folks are the only pure evil scum wiped from the crevasse of a prehistoric creature.
A man was killed after the Giants-Dodgers game last night, ostensibly because he was rooting for the team from Los Angeles.
This is, of course, the unfortunate opposite of the Giants fan who was nearly beaten to death in LA a few years ago:
A man wearing Dodgers gear was stabbed to death when a fight broke out between rival fans just after a San Francisco Giants baseball game near AT&T Park late Wednesday night.
San Francisco Police said a confrontation between two groups of men following a Dodgers and Giants game broke out near the intersection of Third and Harrison streets about.
The man was walking away from the stadium with his father and brother when a verbal disagreement led to a physical confrontation involving a knife, police said.
The man was stabbed during the fight and transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, police said.
Three people were taken into custody in the area, and police were continuing to interview witnesses.
This is why I’ll never go to a Philly-San Fran sporting event in San Fran. I’m a big pussy and I don’t want to get stabbed.
You may, perhaps, recall the time: 62 people required medical attention at the 49ers-Packers game… a man was stabbed outside Candlestick Park… a nasty fight broke out outside Candlestick Park… there were two shootings in a parking lot outside Candlestick Park… a man was robbed at gunpoint for his Phillies-Giants playoff tickets… and a Phillies fan was run over after leaving a game.
You may recall those things. And you may have drawn the conclusion that San Francisco sports fans are the worst people on Earth! despite the city’s reputation for being all green and techy and friendly and progressive and shit. Fuck you, Bay city.
