Hey, At Least They Weren’t Screwing: White Sox Fans Brawl In Right Field Stands

No, really. They could have been banging, and we don’t need to see that, do we?

In the ’70s classic, “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”, Jim Croce sang that the South Side of Chicago is the baddest part of town, and after watching this little bit of the old ultraviolence that erupted in Section 103 of U.S. Cellular Field, I have to agree with late singer’s sentiments. These are fans of the same friggin’ team that are brawling, for crying out loud.

And with things quickly going south for the White Sox – they lost 6-5  to the Angels after coming up just short while  scoring four runs in the 8th inning during a frantic comeback, losers of six of ten, 7 1/2 games back of Detroit and Minnesota, an abysmal offense (a .233 team batting average) and manager Ozzie Guillen tweeting that he wakes up and cries every night – this likely will not be the last time frustration over what is occurring on the field translates to fisticuffs between exasperated and drunken fans. We hope, because this was quite the throwdown.

The brawl starts exactly the same way every fracas does in the stands, one group of guys taunts another group of guys, beverages are thrown, somebody is shoved and another guy responds by throwing a completely vicious haymaker to the shover’s face. More shoving and punching ensues and then one brave lady jumps in screaming for everybody to stop it. It’s truly a delight to watch.

Video after the jump.

The audible “Woahhh!” you hear when Griffey Jersey Guy cold-cocks Konerko Jersey Guy is one of the real highlights of the video, but there are so much going on here, I am sure I missed something the first twenty times I watched it.

    Amazing how the fat kid with the Konerko jersey kept his afro wig on for the whole fight. Wait, what?

    so naturally this will be national news and paint the whole organization and city in a bad light for years to come, so in 40 years people writing about the team will talk about that infamous incident of fan on fan violence in the stands.

    woah wait, this is chicago? not philly? oh nevermind no one will ever know this happened

    I didn’t know Mexicans had their own section. Or is it the whole stadium? Stay classy Chicago.

    The hook was solid, but I preferred the limp-wristed jersey slap delivered by the other Sox fan.

    Where were the Ligue’s when we needed them? And what happened to Father-Son run on the field fight night? Certainly more entertaining than the 2010 hitless wonder White Sox.

    I think the vendor started it.

    He looked guilty as he escaped.
