Maybe We're The Nice People Of North America, After All
Last night, for at least the third time in recent memory, fans at SkyDome (sorry, we refuse to endorse a media monopoly by calling it 'Rogers Centre') have thrown a beer can at opposing players. Hey, aren't Canadians supposed to be the "nice" inhabitants of North America? A beer can (probably full of crappy Labatt Blue) nearly struck Oriole left-fielder Hyun Soo Kim last night, calling into question the sanity (let alone the manners) of Jays fans. In 2013, a Toronto fan tossed a beer at another Orioles outfielder (Nate McClouth). Geez, is it some inter-species bird thing? Anyway, there was also another incident just last year, when a beer rained down on a Texas Ranger at SkyDome—almost hitting a baby in the process. So, what's going on? We'd say it's time for all the "Nice Canadian" crap to stop flowing from the Ministry of Propaganda in Ottawa.
