Don’t Mess With Texas

I really don’t believe that sentiment at all, especially not after what happened at the As game last night.
However, what I was most interested in was examining the reactions of the crowd as the chair was thrown. Check them out:

Some of them are like, “Ah, yeah! He threw it! Now it’s ON!” And others are more properly horrified, “My god, what has this game come to? I can’t believe he threw it!” One guy is like, “Ooh, that HAD to hurt!” Some nice lady actually looks genuinely worried.
Proud of that, are ya, W?

    Then there’s Francisco there in the lower left corner goin’ “remember to follow thru”. Now all of a sudden a Raiders game looks downright safe.

    “Proud of that, are ya, W?”
    I love the Bay area, I wouldn’t live here if I didn’t, but why does everything gotta come down to the (aggravating,I want his a** out of office,ignorant) president? Yes he spent time in Texas, but damn it he went to school in other states and he road his dad’s coat tails to become the governor (you have no idea how much that pissed me off, I loved Ann Richards)… I hate the fact that when people think of Texas they think of that nitwit, but don’t let a bad apple and all that.
    2nd, this guy who threw the chair is a rookie (damn he’s younger than me b. 1979) from the Dominican Republic, so why don’t I hear anyone saying those “**** Dominicans are violent”? anyways..
    sorry, just discovered (and added this blog to my aggregator, BLOGLINES RULES!) and had to rant a bit..

    I made the W comment because he owns the team.

    I suspect he divested himself prior to taking office.
    Regardless…now the woman who got hit in the face is threatening to sue the Rangers, despite the fact that her husband ADMITS that the entire reason they got season tickets near the visitor’s bullpen? WAS TO HECKLE. And? THAT THEY WERE HECKLING. But they weren’t using any profanity, so it’s okay, they still have the moral high ground.
    No, seriously. That’s their position. No, a chair shouldn’t have been thrown, but are we seriously supposed to feel sorry for someone who basically invited this and is now whining about the consequences of her actions?

    and i’m like all “he said that one guy was like” and he’s like “why is the anonymous guy like all “i’m like saying that he’s judging the people from their expressions in a photo and he’s like a mind reader and he’s superior” and he’s like, no, you misjudged me.
