New England Patriots beer thrower evens the karmic slate (Video)



The battle between New York and Boston has been in the news as of late and now the New England Patriots fans have earned the title of worst fans.

Well, well, well how the tables have turned. It seems like just 2 weeks ago everyone in the city of Boston was crucifying Yankee fans for a beer-throwing incident.

“That is absolutely classless!” they said. “Yankees fans are a bunch of jackass goombas!” shouted the local radio stations.

Well, who’s laughing now Boston? The beer-throw shamers have become the beer-throw shamees.

It’s times like these where I really enjoy the karmic balance of the universe. Under two weeks! Yankees fans were ruthlessly roasted by the City of Boston and it didn’t even take 14 days to even the score!

I guess I can’t really give Boston fans too much grief though. It’s easy to get caught up in the high stakes of a Week 6 game. Especially when a rookie quarterback absolutely torches your defense in your own home. Everybody knows the best way to show that you aren’t worried is to flip off the fastest man alive while showering him in beer when he makes your secondary look like 2-week-old Swiss cheese.

in conclusion, I’ve decided to take the high road here and say one fan doesn’t represent the entire fan base. All I can do is hope that Boston fans see this and think to themselves “maybe not all Yankees fans are assholes.”

Just as a little sidenote as well, the Yankees beer-throwing incident resulted in an apology and a very real friendship. The Patriots beer-throwing incident resulted in a lifetime ban from Gillette Stadium.

I also have a hard time believing that Tyreek Hill will strike up a friendship with the guy that flipped him off and threw a beer at him after he dusted the defense.


Lifetime ballplayer and Yankee fan. Strongly believe that the eye-test and advanced stats can be used together instead of against each other.
