Reason 1,045 why American fans are better than Canadian fans: At the Raptors game tonight I was physically grabbed by the guy sitting behind me as he tried to force me to sit down. The situation? Raptors facing elimination, up by 5 with 1:30 left. I'm on my feet, and the guy behind me grabs my hoodie and tries to push me into my seat because I was blocking his view. Meanwhile, the whole lower bowl is standing and so is about 1/3 of the upper bowl, where I am sitting (standing).
Let me say that again:
Some jackass tried to force me into my chair.
Because I was standing and cheering for the home team.
In the final 90 seconds of an elimination playoff game.
Fool better be glad I wasn't raised in the lawsuit-happy USA, or I probably would have sued his ass.
