Oh, to be the proud child of the football fan below. Mommy, how was your trip to New Orleans and why do you have handcuff marks around your wrists?
If it weren’t bad enough that Oklahoma had just shocked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, followed by Sooner coach Bob Stoops publicly berating SEC teams as beatable if not overrated (God forbid!), thanks to some lucky fan with a cellphone charge, we caught a true glimpse of the liquored-up potential of the female college football fan.
What happens in New Orleans stays in New Orleans, unless of course you come home with a criminal record.
Prepare yourselves for the video below. I challenge you to watch it only once.
This poor woman, who at first glance appears normal except for the exuberance with which she cheers for her football team, and the fact that she was wearing a scarf inside a dome, apparently couldn’t handle the ribbing she was getting from the Oklahoma section in front of her.
She had had enough. Watch below as this SEC soccer mom lets Sooner fan have a piece of her mind. And boot.
I’ve actually met Sooner fans before. When Florida played Oklahoma in the 2009 BCS title game, some buddies and I rolled down to South Beach for the festivities. Even in loss, Oklahoma fans were among the most cordial you’ll ever meet. Apparently the same cannot be said for Alabama fans who may have gotten a little too big for their britches after back-to-back national championships. So much for winning with dignity.
Look, every fan base has its jerkoffs. You can’t generalize. That’d be like saying all Asians are bad drivers or all Georgia fans live in trailer parks. That’s just wrong. For the most part.
But a few years ago, once again in New Orleans, this time after a victory, an Alabama fan had his way with a drunken, passed out LSU fan right in the middle of a Bourbon Street Krystal Burger. If you’ve never before heard of tea-bagging, you have now. We here at SportsChump like to consider this an educational website. I’m only here to help.
In the end, we sports fans can get a little carried away. Bourbon plays a big part in that. So as this football season winds to a close, I’m here to remind you all the importance of sportsmanship and drinking in moderation. Shake someone’s hand after a game well-played. Don’t resort to kicking them in the head or dropping your ball sack on their chin. And if you do, please make sure there’s a video camera around.
