Nobody gets more rough and tumble than baseball fans, assuming you exclude football, basketball, and hockey fans. And golf fans at The Majors. Baseball fans have spent the last 150 years fixating on the fact that their hometown and their baseball team are inexorably pride connected. Things got ugly toward the end of the Indians game last night when a bunch of visiting Tigers fans started rooting for their team in the opponent’s park. Drunk Indians fans quickly rallied back by chanting ‘Detroit Bankrupt’ in reference to the Motor City’s recent historic bankruptcy filing. Detroit fans fired back about Cleveland Public Schools abysmal math scores, followed by Cleveland fans chanting that a 2009 study that showed that their city’s public school test scores were only second worst in the Midwest region to Detroit as it turned out. Tigers fans then stormed the field and re-created the kidnapping and rape of three teenage girls held captive in Ariel Castro’s Cleveland home for over a decade. Then somebody hit a foul ball pop out and everybody in the entire country not from Cleveland or Detroit had a good laugh at the red-headed stepchildren of cities beating on each other.
