being a fan: a hazardous occupation
I love watching soccer; watched every soccer match I could in the Olympics. But, especially in Europe, I won't attend the games in person because the fans get so crazy that people have been beaten and trampled after a game.
Now it looks like American baseball is joining the ranks. This morning (9/8/13) it was announced that a Dodgers fan was killed during a fight with Giants fans in Los Angeles. All the time the Dodgers were in booming bumptious Brooklyn, nothing like this ever happened, even in the Subway Series. Maybe the Dodgers should come home.
