Go Cards

Sunday night I went to the Cardinals VS Cubs game. It was an exciting game right up to the end when we kicked the Cubs' butt. However I think the crowd around us was more entertaining. While watching the game I also got to watch 3 people be escorted out by stadium security.

The first was a rowdy Cards fan who tried to push a rowdy Cubs fan down some steps. Security came and had to get the whole story and then told the Cards fan that he had to leave. The funny part was that while security was getting the story the guy just stood there eating his peanuts and trying to look around the guard to continue watching the game. He acted as though he had done no wrong.

The next 2 people were an older couple. They were seated about 3 rows in front of us. It started as them not letting a young girl cross in front of them so that she could get to her seat. The insisted that she go the other way since there were less people. They were so rude that the girl was almost in tears. Then they did it again to another girl, but she was older and got into an argument with the couple, but made her way to her seat. What happened after that is still kind of a mystery.

Someone, who was never discovered, threw a beer at the couple and totally drenched the lady. So she turned around and blasted the couple behind them. They explained that they also had beer splashed on them, so it wasn't them. People started to accuse others and again security was called. The situation was explained and why the beer was possibly thrown. At to the cheers of the people around the older couple was escorted out.

When I told this story to my family everyone assumed that the couple were Cubs fans, but they weren't. They were Cards fans, so you figure they had to be bad to have all their fellow fans turn against them. I can't wait to go to another game.

Another in a long list of why I believe that the world would be a much better place without all the people.

You think this is bad try going to a Phillies or an Eagles game sometime...
