Why are some people just so unbelievably douchey and obnoxious that they think stunts like this are a good idea.
Cleveland isn't exactly a city that has a lot to be excited about, especially when it comes to sports. And in case you live in a tree, or instinctively cover your ears and sing out of pitch everytime a sports news break comes on, LeBron James recently left the city in what will likely be considered the greatest sports star jilting of all time. Not only did he decide to leave Cleveland for brighter pastures in Miami, essentially relegating the potential championship contender to the bottom rung of the Eastern Conference, but he did it on an unprecedented, hourlong, hunk-of-s television special that pretty much blindsided Cleveland fans.
Needless to say, the King is a sore subject in the town of Cleveland.
So this absolute a-hole who you can witness in the video below decides to show up to a Cleveland Indians/ Yankees game wearing a LeBron # 6 Miami Heat jersey. I could understand showing up to the game in a Yankees jersey, if that's your team. I could also understand showing up to a Cavs/Heat game next year in your Miami LeBron jersey, if Miami's your team or LeBron's still your guy (though you'll still likely get heckled).But showing up to a baseball game that has nothing to do with LeBron, the Heat or basketball just makes you look like the world's biggest stooge. I mean even showing up to any baseball game decked out in basketball gear makes you look like a rube, but to do it this way is just uncalled for.
And guess what? The fans agreed with that assessment. Even guys wearing Yankees gear were heckling this d-bag. And pretty much the entire section gave him the booing he deserved. According to the story, some guy spilled beer on him, fans wouldn't let him back to his seat, and the tone around him got more and more angry until they escorted him out (probably for his own safety).
Ten bucks says the dopey blond in red-and-blue shinguards with him doesn't even realize what all the commotion is about.
Pretty poor quality video, but it tells the amusing tale nicely. At least Yankees and Cleveland fans can bond over something.
