The good news is you are close to all the action. Unfortunately, the bad news is that you are extremely close to all the action.
And with that, we bring you to all the reasons you might not want to sidle the sidelines at a sporting event. Oh sure, it looks like the best vantage point in the house, but it comes with its own set of pratfalls and possible disasters.
From coaches dropping haymakers to some dropping some serious cash because of fines, we have you covered. Of course, we also have some words of caution for you fans who want nothing more than to get close to all the action: Sometimes it's best to just watch the game from the cheap seats.
As always, feel free to suggest your own instances of sideline mayhem in the comments section below.
Now let's show you why the sidelines aren't always the best place in the house.
Note: We are playing fast and loose with the term sideline, but we hope you will forgive us with some of the more classic videos.
