All the haters in the house

This weeks spin cycle is about hate. What do I hate? I hate a lot of things. I think in light of football season though I will talk about my hate for football fans. Now I LOVE football! I've talked about it on numerous occasions. But we are going to the Kansas City Chiefs game this weekend and they are playing division rival the Oakland Raiders. Now my hubby is a die hard Raiders fan. I have slowly become a Raiders fan (they are now my new second favorite team behind the REDSKINS!) just because I want to know about what is going on with his team. Anyways...my mom got us tickets to the game for the hubby's birthday. And now he doesn't know if he wants to wear Raiders clothes. Why you may ask? Well because drunk football fans are the worst! (here it comes)

I hate that a person that has no bearing on the outcome of the game feels that it is their place to make other fans uncomfortable and be as rude as possible because they are not going for the same team that you are. And I'm not even talking about the rude, obnoxious fans for the other team that are jeering and cussing and just being rude. We went to a Redskins/Cowboys game in Dallas a few years ago and being the Redskins fan that I am I was cheering for the Redskins. I was not even being obnoxious yet the Cowboys fan a few rows behind me started heckling me. Telling me I was white trash and that my engagement ring was cubic zarconia (sic). I was just cheering for my team and this douche bag had to go and ruin my good time by personally attacking me. I have been to a Chiefs game that I didn't really care who they were playing but I saw numerous people get into fights because they were cheering for the "wrong" team. I really don't know how this weekend will turn out. I am planning on wearing a black t-shirt (Raiders colors are Black/Silver) and I'm sure I will get yelled at but honestly people, it's a game.

And just to be fair, this does not only happen at football games. I went to a baseball game (Royals vs. Cardinals) and the hubby was wearing a Royals shirt at Busch stadium and he got heckled. I just think it is ridiculous. And I think it is even more ridiculous when these people personally attack you. They don't know you. What if it was their mother and you were doing that to her, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't enjoy that. Let's just take some advice from Rodney King and let's all just get along. I hope my weekend is uneventful and if you want to check out other people's hates go to http://www.spriteskeeper.com

I've never been to a football or baseball game, but I've seen that at hockey games. Not NHL games, mind you, probably because the tickets are so damned expensive, but junior league, definitely.

What's really annoying, at both levels, is the idiots that jump up and bang on the glass and yell at the players when they're near. Like these professional athletes who have to be in top physical shape to do their jobs are going to be intimidated by some fat drunk slob.

I have been to a few pro football games and watched the fan beratings go down. Of course, it gets worse ever quarter with every beer downed. I think I would rather watch from the safety of my own living room. :-)
Great Spin! You're linked!

The WORST people in the world are these fans. Wannabes and jealous they can't play pro ball and are relegated to bad golf games!

Great spin! My husband is a die-hard Cowboys fan and my fahter feels the same way about the Redskins. Imagine the hell that is my life.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels the same way! And I agree dumbass that it's even worse in junior league. It's not even the pros! And of course the level of beer consumed equals more loud-mouths.
