ZOMG! There Are Bad People in San Francisco Too?

Eat your heart our, Bruce Newman.

The Mercury News writer who trashed our city (and then I ripped him apart) will be shocked to learn that a Giants fan was robbed at gunpoint on his way into last night's game.  [San Francisco Examiner]

A man was robbed of Giants playoffs tickets at gunpoint near AT&T Park on Thursday, police said.

The 29-year-old victim reported the robbery around 5:30 p.m., about a half-hour after the first pitch was thrown in Game 5 of the seven-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, police said.

The armed thug, described as a 26-year-old black man, pulled a handgun on the victim at Fourth and Channel streets, police said. The victim was not injured. There has been no arrest. 

Ironic, because this story appeared on the same site that, just yesterday, called Philadelphians "brutal" for booing Kobe Bryant.

    YES!! Feel bad for the guy that got robbed, but come on, every city has problems… Philly’s just get more coverage for some reason. He’s probably glad he got robbed anyway… he didn’t miss much, being a Giants fan and all… unless he was looking forward to learning some new expletives from his mediocre left fielder.

    I’m sure Mr. Newman believes the thug to be a Phillies fan.

    The biggest part of this is the violation that 30 mins after first pitch, the guy who got robbed still wasn’t in the stadium. Your team has a chance to clinch a pennant and you are 30 mins late to the game? Give your tickets to someone else then.
