    The puncher allegedly got vaxxed on the Tweeter.

    Info was posted, dunno if the info is verified.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    The NFL in arena experience is awful. On top of the fact that the fans are pretty much scum in the arena the game is flipping boring as heck.

    The problem is the fan experience is getting that way with all sports...it takes way more convincing to get me to an arena or stadium than it used to because no matter the team or the game people just sucks.

    Football is 10,000 times better on TV. Nothing about the actual experience of going to a game is positive.

    Haven't been since 1979. For the first 20 years I couldn't afford it. For the last 20 when I could you couldn't pay me to go.

    I can't speak for the NBA because I have literally not been to an NBA games since I saw the Wolves play in the Metrodome.

    I'm in with a group that has Wild tickets and, knock on wood, that hasn't gotten too bad as of yet. It might just be our section. I guess I'll see Saturday what this year will be like.

    Personally I've never really experienced any problems at all at baseball games, even at Yankee Stadium. In fact I thought the Yankees fans I sat next to were probably the nicest sports fans I've ever enjoyed a game with, if you can believe that.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    CF bleachers at Fenway are pretty f-cked up. White Worldstar! I've never had any trouble in any other park, and even there you just need to be calm and stick to your guns and the puds wilt. Baseball is a good crowd overall, considering it's a slice of the Common Man.

    The only time anybody actually got physically aggressive with me at any sporting event was some moron at Appleton of all places, and I'm pretty sure he was drunk and trying to impress his one eyebrowed Miss Canton GF.

    I've been to MLS and MLB in Seattle and didn't have a problem at either one.

    Re: Nice Planet 14: You People Make Me Sick

    Wild playoff game 2 years ago...guy was so drunk he was not only harassing people but when security came to get him he fell down the steps about 7 rows. I see stuff like that almost every time I go to one of their games.

    The Twins is hit or miss depending on where you sit. It is better than it used to be the Dome out in the bleachers could get pretty dicey.

    Of course I dont drink at games because almost all the jacknapes I see that act that way are 5 beers in and feeling no pain.

    And I lived in Seattle, their fans are only aggressive if their team is actually any good at anything. And MLS barely counts as a major sport anyways

    Different culture. I went to 40 WHL games a year in Portland for 6 years and never saw a single fight, despite 20% of the crowd being smashed.

    Look, the PNW is just better, objectively, on all counts.

    The only fans I've ever consistently been harassed by is UND fans. All opposing fans throw some good-natured stuff, sure. However, UND fans just throw in the barb that is a bit over the line at best. Even the random Packer fans I've come across generally don't get mean with their trash-talk.*

    *Note: this doesn't make them less annoying with their cheers for the team/etc. Seriously, I wonder what the world record is for saying "Go Pack Go!" for a game?

    I ended up teaming up with a UND fan to get a drunk Gopher fan to stop harassing Mercyhurst fans at Mariucci. Every fanbase has them.

    Yes, every fanbase has their *******s. Hence my use of the word "consistently."

    I've never had issues at baseball games. But these days I only go to one a year at most, and tend to pay for better seats. It may still be bad in the bleachers/upper deck areas.

    Can't say I've ever had any problem in many, many games at Lambeau. Even with the extensive pre-gaming that goes on the atmosphere is always a pretty jovial in tone and even Bears and Vikings fans that are genuinely awful people, turn good natured.

    Pretty sure you went through a few violations of the Geneva Convention.
