I’m really disappointed in the American sports fan. Not because they will or won’t boycott the NFL for the whole Black Lives Matter shit but because they aren’t passionate enough.
I remember going to Yankee Stadium, as a young Red Sox fan, with my father and being scared shitless. I thought I was going to see him get beaten up and I was positive beer bottles would be thrown at us. Instead, we were greeted with smiles and waves.
Even the most dangerous stadium in the country, Oakland Coliseum is a joke. Just a few years ago my buddy and I were chugging a bunch of unattended beers outside the smoking section while wearing rival sports gear. Eventually, the true owners claimed them but we left without a scrape. We have to do better than this as sports fans and a good way would be to copy the Brits. I wrote about it for Public House, an English publication, here.
