This is an exciting time of year for sports fans out there – the NBA playoffs have begun, and baseball season is starting. Rivalries clash, and the intensity of games can rise. It’s fun to be competitive on a legal and safe level. By this, we mean not letting your passion for sports blow up and land you throwing punches at another person.
Fights at sports games occur every now and then for reasons that mostly stem from supporters of opposing teams. Intoxication is often a factor. And before you know it, security breaks up the fight, the police arrive, and the parties are handcuffed. Occasionally some involved end up in the hospital with severe injuries. These fights make an impact on other sports spectators and the teams themselves, who often speak out against altercations condoning them. The teams do not want these altercations be a reflection about the sport.
So that being said, we urge all sports fans out there rooting for their team, their sport, to do so in the fun name of the game. Wouldn’t you hate being thrown in jail? It’s not worth it and you can bet you certainly won’t be watching any sports from inside prison. Be a bigger person and walk away from any possible altercations. Doing so could certainly save you and your pals a lot of danger and trouble.
