Since we’re always bombarded with the reference of Santa Claus in 1962, why not shed light on other unruly fanbases?
No Joshin’ — affiliated with neither the Phillies nor the Dodgers — wrote about his experience in the cheap seats during game three. He attended with his friend, a Phillie fan, who was practically terrorized by Dodger fans. A few other instances are referenced there. Here’s his final take:
“I’ve been to Dodger Stadium before. I’ve had fun there before. But that night has left a severe scar on how I view Dodger Stadium and Dodgers fans. You always hear about Raiders fans at the black hole, or Philadelphia fans booing Santa, or college football rivalries that provide tense moments. But I could have enjoyed my life as a sports fan blissfully unaware of how utterly classless, thoughtless, and gutless some of the Dodgers fans act.”
Just sad. Hopefully one day the media realizes practically every fanbase does this kind of crap, and it’s not just Philadelphia.
