You thought only soccer fans go nuts...

This story happened awhile back but the lawsuit just came up and reminded me of this beautiful display of sportsmanship:

"UT fan sues OU fan and restaurant
By: Associated Press - Texarkana Gazette - Published: 06/14/2008

OKLAHOMA CITY—A football fan who says he was attacked in an Oklahoma City bar after being heckled for wearing a Texas Longhorns shirt is suing the bar and an Oklahoma Sooners fan for more than $100,000.

Brian Thomas alleges in a suit filed Thursday that he was left with “serious, painful and potentially permanent” injuries after Allen Michael Beckett grabbed his groin and refused to let go in a bloody skirmish last year.

Beckett, 54, is scheduled to go on trial in December on a felony charge of aggravated assault and battery. He maintains he was defending himself from Thomas at Henry Hudson’s Pub in June 2007.

Beckett’s attorney, Billy Bock said other witnesses at the bar have countered Thomas’ version of what happened a year ago.

According to Thomas’ lawsuit, Beckett began heckling him after he walked into the bar wearing a Texas T-shirt. Thomas tried to ignore it, but decided to leave a short time later, the lawsuit stated.

Thomas said he was at the bar paying his tab when Beckett grabbed him and refused to let go until his scrotum was torn. The injury required more than 60 stitches, Thomas has said.

The lawsuit mentions “a possible connection to a local sports rivalry.”

Yup boys- a freaking TORN SCROTUM. It hurts just reading about it.

Wow... that sucks. Why would you grab someone's balls though? Why not just punch them in the face or something normal like that.

This reminds me of hockey around here. There is one team who is really good but their fans are insane. Well one game they got beat when they were supposed to win and it was the semi finals of the state championship. The fans were so pissed their team lost that they went into the parking lot and were flipping cars over and when the other team tried to leave they were throwing rocks at them and the team had to be escorted out by cops and then the fans were still throwing rocks at the bus and stuff. It was pretty intense and it was only high school hockey in CT so I don't know why they got so upset.

High school sports fans can make the most hardcore soccer hooligans look like little girls.

Ditto martial arts moms who don't practice a martial art themselves, but their kids compete.

Torn scrotum?

I wear alot of NHL shirts, I sure hope I don't run into a pissed off Oilers fan.

I'm sure there some dirt like this about heavy metal aswell. I should try and find some.
