The Boston Channel reports: “A die-hard Red Sox fan from Gloucester, Mass., is going to have to pay up big time after a Yankees fan punched him, and hurt his hand in the process.
Bay Stater David Sanborn, 40, was ordered by a California jury to pay Yankees fan Mario Melendez $25,297 because Melendez hurt his hand when he punched Sanborn in the mouth during a bar brawl in Carlsbad, Calif., two years ago, the Boston Herald reported.
Sanborn said the two men were watching games on TVs in the restaurant when Melendez started cheering for the Yankees and Sanborn told him to sit down. A fight quickly ensued and Melendez said he punched Sanborn in the mouth in self-defense, breaking some of Sanborn’s teeth.”
Well, at least the Yankees fans have something on the Sox right now. New York, don’t you realize how mediocre our team is right now? Pretty soon we’re going to have to bring back Don Mattingly to bat third.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
