Total Frat Move’s Mailman Dave was able to interview Kip Williams, one of the guys that came to tackle the puncher in the Padres fan fight. He was packed with information and we’ll let you be the judge over who was at fault:
“The Padres guy’s dad was already kicked out and I think he was vaping earlier. He was standing in the second row by the field and suddenly these guys are chirping back and forth. He starts walking up and immediately makes a 90 degree turn into the aisle. I know how to fight, so when I saw his eyes — I knew he wasn’t going to stop. It was both of their faults” Williams said.
“So i finally take a look at the Rockies fan and he looks like a teacher. The guy had zero shot. And right after I get the guy in a headlock that he was not getting out of. Guy right behind me goes ‘that’s some pretty good form’.”
Turns out, it was former L.A. Kings hockey player Derek Armstrong that does the pre and post-game shows for the team.
But where Kip Williams has a point is that this battle was the fault of both parties. The “fighter” was pissed his dad was ejected earlier, and then you have the victim (loser of the fight) chirping. How new school of that guy to think he can chirp at whoever he wants and get away with it?
Sometimes people that pop off deserve a knuckle sandwich. As Kip Williams said, everyone around him could tell a fight was brewing, so why couldn’t he? Highly probable that he’s just a complete idiot and was put to sleep over it. Also worth noting that you shouldn’t walk over to people at a baseball game that would visibly struggle in a fight against you. The “pick on your own size” mentality, I guess. I don’t know if that still applies here. My personal feeling on it is that you can walk over to an inferior man and let him know he has no chance.
You don’t have to send his face into another dimension, but make your presence felt. However, I can see how anger would take over. What do you think?
