There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building.
It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons).
Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or bodily waste onto the floor. Which is what Childress told FanHouse he saw launched while in Greece.
“Pieces of marble to ceramic, M-80s, lighters, cameras, cell phones, coins, bottles of urine, feces. Everything.”
Wait a minute? Bottles of urine?
“Actually, some of my buddies got hit with them,” Childress said. “I don’t even know why you would think to do that.”
“It’s as bad as it sounds,” Childress said.
Childress said the rule was not to pick up any paper or anything thrown on the court because people would wrap the explosives in them.
Anytime I become disappointed in how we as Americans act as fans at sporting events, I can count on the fans in other countries — usually soccer fans — to remind me just how bad it could be.
