10 Famous Fans We Wish Had Been Tased
Nothing beats a nice relaxing trip to a sporting event.
Whether it's a Yankee game in mid July, or a playoff game in Green Bay in December, fans come for the love of the game and to root for their favorite team.
But there's always that guy. That one guy who probably had one or two too many. The guy who screams profanities right behind a nice family outing.
The guy who heckles players and coaches by name. The guy, who apparently, knows what the team should have done or what they're not doing.
Then there's the celebrity fans that get the best seats and make a living out of being the No. 1 fan. We've seen them on TV 10,000 times. No more, we're begging!
Well, for all the real fans out there who can boo but not obnoxiously, the fans that can cheer while being sober, the true sport fans, this is for you, The Top 10 Fans That Should Have Been Tased. Enjoy!
10. Jessica Simpson
Although her reign as a Cowboys cheerleader was short, Jessica Simpson was hated by just about every sane Cowboys fan during the '07 Cowboys season.
Some fans even looked at her as a curse and would've tased her themselves if given the chance.
9. Rudy Giuliani
The camera was glued to Giuliani, especially during the 2001 World Series. Because of the tragedies of Sept. 11, he was a symbol of New York at that time.
All these years he had me convinced he was a true Yankee -- after all he does have four rings.
But in '07 he was attending a campaign in Boston and put himself in our crosshairs.
"I'm rooting for the Red Sox, I'm an American League fan, and I go with the American League team -- maybe with exception of the Mets," he said. "Maybe that would be the one time I wouldn't, because I'm loyal to New York."
Consider yourself tased!
8. Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck should be tased for his acting alone. But his true crime would be brain washing a perfectly good Jennifer Gardener into another Red Sox tag-a-long.
You can't really question Ben's fan hood though. I mean he is a Boston native, right?
How about the fact that he and Matt Damon are making a movie about two gay Yankees?
Don't believe me? Look it up, its called "The Trade".
7. John Green
This is the beer thrower. It was like the shot heard around the world.
Green threw a plastic cup filled with beer at Artest after he was taken off the court for arguing.
After that all hell broke loose in the "Malice at the Palace".
6. Ashley Judd
Ashley Judd has stared in some very good movies.
There's no doubt that she's the No. 1 Kentucky fan among celebrities. But her appearances during the NCAA Tournament are hard to watch.
She is either jumping up and down screaming her head off, or clenching her seat and biting her nails and the camera catches all of it.
She's a die hard fan, that's for sure. But when she is interviewed during halftime or after a game, come on, she doesn't play or coach -- her word means nothing.
5. Jeffrey Maier
In one of the most memorable moments in baseball history, the young Jeffery Maier assisted Derek Jeter by robbing a home run ball from Tony Tarasco.
The Yanks were down 4-3, the home run tied it at 4 and Bernie Williams ended it in the 11th with a walk-off.
The Yanks went on to win the series and Baltimore fans were outraged.
Later on, the Yankees scouted Maier when he played ball at Wesleyan University.
4. Britt Gaston and Cliff Courtney
These two guys would be tased nowadays without a doubt.
The two teens rushed the field after "Hammerin' Hank" hit his record 715th home run.
They were apprehended and charged with disorderly conduct and walked away with a small fee (but no tase).
3. The Snowball Thrower
It's a known fact that Philly fans are the most ruthless sport fans there are.
But during the worst season in their franchise, Philadelphia had a chance to finish with the worst record in the NFL and draft OJ Simpson.
Two back-to-back wins would crush their hopes of getting OJ.
In a rage, Eagle fans booed Santa during a halftime show at one of their games.
The booing led to snowballs and Santa was just bombarded out of Philly.
2. Spike Lee
Spike Lee attends just about every Knicks game. Similar to Jack Nicholson and the Lakers, but Jack isn't as weird.
Spike Lee is just a different guy. He's kind of out in left field with no glove.
The most memorable Spike Lee moment has to be during the '94 Eastern Conference Finals.
Lee badgered Reggie Miller during a fourth quarter in which Miller scored 25 points and gave Lee credit for every single one of them.
The Cubs led the game against the Marlins 3-0, holding a series lead of 3-2. They were five outs away from reaching the 2003 World Series.
It would have been their first appearance since 1945. They also hadn't won one since 1908.
Prior had a three[ hit shutout going into the 8th when a fly ball was hit into the stands.
Moises Alou had a play on it but native Cubs fan Steve Bartman snagged it away.
Florida came back to win the series ending Chicago's chance to snap the drought which continues to this day, thanks to Steve Bartman, our No. 1 Fan That Should Have Been Tased.
