Does anyone know what went on with/have details about Bears fans making Katrina taunts at Saints fan? I can't get the abc clip to play at work and I can't find any other information. Thanks.

Now this is REAL, hardcore trolling

Bears fans taunt Katrina victims, Saints fans... Mike Baham, who was there and took the photograph, tells THE DEAD PELICAN that he "witnessed the TV guy from New Orleans getting beer thrown at him and was the target of more katrina cracks and physical threats than I could have ever expected." (Photograph By Mike Baham (C) 2007)

Wow, what a jerk.

I was tempted to look into this, but then decided I'd be better off focusing on all the calls and text messages I was getting from friends around the country in support of the Saints.

Why am I not surprised? Chicagoans are pretty friendly in general, but the asshole meter skyrockets as soon as they get in a car or put on sports apparel.

love your icon! I'm looking at my Get Fuzzy cartoon-of-the-day calendar right now. Today's includes Bucky Katt saying "I'm hotter than fresh roadkill, baby."

I can't even vocalize the contempt I have for those assholes..yet another reason that organized sports should be done away with

You ever make it up here, and we're gonna go set fire to every sports bar on the North Side.

Unreal. I guess that's why the term SOUTHERN hospitality came to be
Jan. 23rd, 2007 12:54 am (UTC)
Hey, now...I'm hospitable. Pretty much. Sometimes, anyway.
And I recall stopping for gas in Georgia once, and the kind of hospitality they were offering was definitely *not* the kind I was looking for...kind of a cross between "Deliverance" and "Macon County Line" and "The Hills Have Eyes".

I emailed the Chicago Tribune with a link to the picture and saying "I certainly hope you condemn this."
Jan. 22nd, 2007 06:42 pm (UTC)
Good job, thanks!

It gets worse - Bears fans have been known to throw bottles and cans.
Jan. 22nd, 2007 11:30 pm (UTC)
Could be worse--they throw batteries in Philly. At their own team.

I'm really shocked by this as I was treated wonderfully during the two weeks I was hunkered down in Chicago after Katrina. Although, I was staying in "Boys Town" and there weren't many football junkies in that area.
Jan. 23rd, 2007 12:51 am (UTC)
*That's* where I'm from! I sooo miss that neighborhood! And no...not many Bears fans there...not *that* kind of bear, anyway.

i was blingingmy saints gears up here all week, especially the #9 jersey i got at the black and gold shop and the only taunts I got were pretty harmless, good natured ribbing.

That said, I heard from several people at the game that snowballs and peanuts and god knows what other foreign objects were thrown at them in the stands.

And if you watch the Bush TD replay, when he does his little jig in the endzone, you'll see someone throw a beer or drink at him. Yeah, the taunting was a bit unnecessary since we were losing, but still. Classless. Just like the Bears running up the score at the end.

Love the icon.

That's pretty horrible. A really close friend of ours is a Bears fan and he has always been a sweetheart but sometimes his son has been an ass. So, I asked my husband about this and he said yes, that's a Bears fan for you. He did say that they would do the same thing to their own team. I am not sure what's worse, honestly.
Jan. 23rd, 2007 06:58 am (UTC)
On behalf of most Chicagolanders, these guys are not your average sportsmen and are serious fucktards.

And I lost five bucks betting against the Bears, just so ya know. Once a New Orleanian...:)
Jan. 23rd, 2007 02:38 pm (UTC)
We were at the game. I got pelted by a snowball and my husband got some Katrina jokes in line at the restroom. That said, the majority of Bears fans were very nice. There was the usual kind of away game crap, but for the most part we got a lot of well wishes.
Jan. 23rd, 2007 06:18 pm (UTC)
That's good to hear. I'm happy that the majority of Chicagoans weren't behaving likr this...this...complete piece of shit.
As for the snowballs, I think we all do that. Hell, I threw one at my boss yesterday. I hope you lobbed one right back...and didn't miss.
People I know here really wish you guys well. I hate football, but was really hoping to see the Saints win. Just being curious, how did you come by your tix to the game? We tried to get some for a friend, but Ticketbastards wouldn't let us...They had that whole "only Illinois and NW Indiana addresses" thing.
