Tampa Bay Rays fans might be new to this whole playoff baseball experience, but they are starting to catch on: the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES reports that seven fans were arrested during Game 2 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox. Although it’s a nice start, we certainly aren’t at the level of civic disturbance that we’ve come to know and love/loathe from the fans of the Rays’ opponents.
Most of the fans were arrested for minor, alcohol-related disturbances such as people getting too rowdy in the stands or drinking open containers of whiskey outside the stadium. But the winner has to be Brian McHugh, who tried to sneak into the dugout and…wait a minute, he’s from Sarasota but was born in Massachusetts? Which means he’s probably a Red Sox fan! No matter what the result of the series is on the field, the Red Sox are owning the Rays in terms of fan idiocy. (It even happened in Game 1.)
