So I couldn’t quite narrow down this week’s FAIL, so you get 3. Deal with it.
1. Well, Boston fans across the world must be really proud right now. Apparently, after Wednesday’s Game 7 OT loss to the Washington Capitals, some Boston Bruins fans took to the Twitters to demonstrate exactly how upset they were. Were they upset that their team didn’t win? No, apparently they were infuriated over the color of Joel Ward’s skin. (WARNING: There is some very vulgar language in that link.)
Wow. Really? The N-word? This is 2012, right? I think our Boston Bruins writer Stephanni Phillips puts it:
“Also on the record, in no way do Ariana, myself or A Cup A Bruin and the Aerys NHL ladies condone this type of behavior from ANY of the fan bases or share even remotely the same views. A hockey player is a hockey player regardless of their nationality, race or sexual preference.”
2. Next up, we have the fans of the Texas Rangers. Well, really just one fan in particular. Just check out this video.
So when Mitch Moreland tried to toss the foul ball to a toddler in the stands, the jerk sitting next to the kid took it instead of giving it to the CRYING KID SITTING NEXT TO HIM. Way to be a jerkwad, dude.
3. And then we really should poke a little fun at Albert Pujols, shouldn’t we?*
As many know, Pujols signed a ridiculous $240 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels during the offseason. Well, this Cardinals fan must point out that until Thursday’s game, Pujols was hitless in his last 5 games. Oh and without a home run.
Well, “The Machine” ended his hitless streak when he singled in Thursday’s game. However, seems his greediness has carried over onto the baseball diamond, as he was thrown out trying to stretch the single into a double. Does a hit really count if you can’t stay on base?
*I’m fully aware that by making fun of Albert that he will probably go on an offensive tear for the remainder of the year. I’m just seizing this opportunity while I can.
