If you've watched NBA basketball for, oh, say that last five years you likely have the same opinion of San Antonio fans as a I do. They're only slightly less annoying than Manu Ginobili.
It may not entirely be their fault, as most fans of teams who enjoy a great deal of success grow into huge a-holes. However, a radio interview in San Antonio confirms that it may very well be an isolated problem in that city and it isn't limited to basketball fans. They all suck.
Listen above as local radio host Sean Beligian of WDFN 1130AM speaks with Patrick Green and his desire to sue the NHL and Detroit Red Wings for its abuse of octopi. Yes, you may have to read that sentence again to full comprehend his intention.
Thanks to World of Isaac here's a summary of his letter of complaint (you can listen above):
As a citizen of the United States, I consider the octopus tradition as a sign of degenerate minds. It is disgusting and turns my stomache [sic]. The natural environment of the octopus is the ocean. The reason for its capture by fishermen is for human consumption only, not human playtime. To use the body of an octopus in such a manner is to devalue the animal kingdom. If the National Hockey League's policy was to win only 4 games, would fans toss the bodies of dogs and cats on the ice, since they only have four legs?Wow. PETA called and they'd like their irrationality back.
An animal is an animal. No one owns the ocean. No one owns the octopus. It is every persons responsibility to protect animals who are being shown extreme disrespect. It is my intention, if the Animal Control Division fails to send me a written promise to begin voluntarily to vigorously enforce the Detroit City Code, to file a lawsuit against them. My intention is to have a court issue an order to force the Animal Control Division to do its job. If I do not receive a response to this letter by Friday June 6, 2008, via my e-mail address of [email@example.com] I will file the lawsuit, against the Animal Control Division and the Detroit Red Wings, for their complicity in this crime.
I think the only convincing point is that an animal IS an animal. I can't argue with that. No one can anyone argue that the people of San Antonio suck.
(I toss a complimentary octopus to With Leather for the find)
