Went to the game in East Lansing yesterday and while waiting for the game i noticed that there were a lot of elderly couples in my section. I thought to myself, "damn! i want some young blood around me to cheer and high five with". During the game people in rows lower then us started to stand up which made everybody else stand up. I hear a "hey sit down, i cant see" from behind me and it was a elderly guy. I looked at him and said stand up then. He would continue to whine about people standing up and would i constantly replied stand up then. He eventually resigned to the fact that nobody was gonna listen to him.
Then there was another guy in upper 40's to lower 50's to the right of the guy who was bitching. He then preceded to tell people to sit down because they can see just fine. Then heard the guy say to himself, "i guess they have never been to a football game before", lol. I just laughed and said no apparently YOU have never been to a game before to myself.
Heres where its get interesting. After listening to this guy complain for over 2 hours about people standing and listening to his great insightful (sarcasm) play by play analysis AFTER EVER FRICKEN PLAY, i exploded. Fourth quarter, just before we made a game out of it, my little bro was standing up while both teams were on the sideline. I heard my brother say, "No i wont sit down, there is nothing happening". Then heard his voice get a little bit more nervousome and feeling threatened. I literally jumped out of my seat turned around, threw my finger in his face and said, "did you pay for our seats" in a very threatening way. then my dad turned around and said something to him too. As soon as i got up in his face he sat down like a little chicken shit that he was and didnt say anything for the rest of the game. I swear guys, it was a thing a beauty seeing this guys face afterwards.
When we left the stadium we were talking about what happened while my dad was just happy as could be about what i did. He then told me that the man told my brother, "if you dont sit down i will make you". If i would have heard that i would of socked the man in his face. Im so not a confrontational guy and generally keep to myself, but i just flipped and when your threatening a love one you just done care anymore about what happens.
I know that we talk about how old people kill the environment at games, so i just wanted to tell my story of this crisis.
