Disturbing news out of Chicago today: Drunken Cubs fans acted like drunken Cubs fans. That wasn't good news for the lone White Sox backer in the group:
McHenry County authorities say three Chicago Cubs fans face felony battery charges after allegedly beating a Chicago White Sox fan so badly he lost his right eye.This is just the latest in a growing trend of rivalry violence. In May, a Yankee-loving woman drove her car into and killed a Red Sox fan after an argument -- which consisted of creative chants like "Yankees suck!" -- (shockingly) in a bar. Then earlier this month, a group of Red Sox fans beat a man with a baseball bat, figuring his New York license plates meant he was a Yankees fan. He wasn't, and they weren't even drunk.
The men are accused of beating 32-year-old Robert Steele of Gurnee during a 2-year-old girl's Sesame Street-themed birthday party.
Police said Monday the men were drinking alcohol at the July 19th party and taunting Steele.
So what does this all mean? People shouldn't get plastered when they are with a rival.
