So Did You Hear The One About The Giants Fan Who Was Brutally Beaten in Los Angeles?

You know the saying: When in LA, don't mess with guys who have pencil-thin 'staches

You probably did, seeing as though about 32 of you sent me the link since Friday.

If you didn't, here are the details.

A Giants fan was walking through the parking lot of Dodger Stadium on Thursday night and was beaten by two men wearing Dodgers gear. Both were described as hispanic.

The man, a father of two and a paramedic, is in a medically-induced coma.

That's pretty much all you need to know. This is above and beyond the "We're not the worst fans in the World" argument, as I'm guessing the two guys who hopped out of a car – with a getaway driver – most likely weren't there for the baseball.

Either way, shockingly, it goes to show that bad stuff happens everywhere. Even when the bandwagon idiots at Phillies games – the Type 1 fans –  do dumb shit, it's not grotesquely violent the way this attack in Los Angeles was-  a city where this stuff has happened before. 

What I would put stock in is the 72 people who were arrested at Opening Day in LA (hey, poet), in what was considered a "quiet day" by the LAPD. Watch the video after the jump.

Of course, none of this is as bad as running on the field and throwing snow balls at a fake fucking Santa.

Hop it.

    There’s really no “bigger” or “badder,” but at least the stuff that makes our local news is Phillies fans beating the crap out of each other. We keep it in the family for the most part.
    This is reprehensible, and not just from the perspective of an outsider looking in. If I was a Dodgers fan, I’d want security beefed up at Dodgers Stadium. What’s to stop anyone, anywhere, from doing this kind of horrible stuff to each other? It’s bad enough when two fans of the same team beat each other senseless, but it’s horrible when someone goes to another team’s stadium to enjoy a baseball game and actually has to fear for their lives.
    There are bad stories everywhere and I really think that fans everywhere should take a step back and put their best feet forward when dealing with visiting fans whenever possible.

    Of course T.J. Simers takes another dig at Philly with the latest news.
    “We may learn later it was a pair of Philadelphia transplants who attacked the Giants fans. Short of asking them to register with the authorities before coming to a game, there’s no fixing that problem.”

    I don’t fucking believe that motherfucking piece of shit. You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. Obviously, no one in LA even bothers to read sports stories, so this motherfucker needs to blame it on us so we’ll all link it and he’ll get his precious page views. What a fucking douchebag.

    Seriously, P2H posted exactly what the guy said and the rest of the article isn’t even worth your time. Don’t give this asshole anymore views.

    TJ Simers isn’t worth the sweat off my testicles, never mind my outrage because this is what he and others of his reprehensible ilk in the national media who have it in for Philadelphia get their rocks off doing. If anything, I would’ve been surprised if he HADN’T taken a shot at us. This fool has probably blamed Philly fans for everything from the crappy economy to the Japan earthquake, so this is old news. Bottom line: Screw him.
