Some sports happened this weekend, which means that some sports fans did some awful and violent things. This latest instance comes from a 33-year-old Lions fan, who says a bunch of angry Eagles fans beat the shit out of him outside of the stadium after the Eagles' 34-20 home victory against the Lions. Why? Because he was wearing a Barry Sanders jersey.
Philly.com has the full story, and it's just as shitty as you'd expect:
As he crossed the street, heading toward the train, six of the men blocked his path and continued to scream at him.
"I was like, 'Are you guys serious? You won, enjoy it.' "
The smallest man slapped his head from the side. Another man then pushed him from behind, and the group bum-rushed him, he said.
To defend himself, he threw a punch and brought one of his attackers to the ground. But then he felt punches to the back of his head, he said: "I felt like I was being choked and punched."
That's when he lost consciousness, he said.
Police are currently looking for the alleged attackers, who were described as white men in their 20s wearing Eagles jerseys. So they should be super easy to find.
