New York fans get a bad rap around the country for being unruly (I am talking to you Mr. Greenberg), and sometimes the criticism is justified. Some spitting, a few thrown objects and even a fight or two have been known to breakout in the stands, but the one thing you’ve never seen is a riot. For some reason, sports championships have become justification for obscene civil disobedience in cities around the world, but not in the Big Apple. The rest of the world can have its bonfires and rock throwing; New Yorkers use tickertape.
The shameful behavior seen in the video below is really not an indictment of San Francisco, but a sad part of our nation’s sports culture. Maybe one day the rest of the country will follow New York’s lead and celebrate their sports’ championships with civility?
