Now that is class

I'm watching the Sabres game right now. Connolly was hit pretty bad, and went down. He was motionless for a few seconds. When he got up about 10-15 seconds later, there was an audible cheer from Ottawa fans. That shows a general classiness that some other cities *cough* Philly *cough* simply lack.

Buffalo is a pretty safe place for an opposing team's fans. I've sat at Bills games among groups pretty evenly split between Dolphins fans and Bills fans, all decked out in their respective garb, and cheering at the appropriate times. Apart from the occasional drunken idiot, the fans of an opposing team will get nothing more than a good natured taunting. There is no physical danger involved.

Let me just make one thing clear:

If you make death threats against players on a sports team....

If you physically accost fans of an opposing team....

If an injury to a player on an opposing sports team brings you pleasure...

If you riot because of anything having to do with soccer...

and while I'm on this rant:

If you are motivated to violence because of a gorram cartoon...

YOU ARE NOT READY FOR CIVILIZATION AND JUST NEED TO CRAWL INTO A CAVE, UNDER A LARGE ROCK, AND JUST STAY THERE UNTIL YOU ARE.

Welcome to the 21st century. Take a chill pill, pour a cold beer, and enjoy the hockey game.
