Sometimes we are no better than animals.
Saturday's fixture between TSG Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich featured a little more action than is tasteful at a public place.
Goal.com reports a couple were caught having sex in the stands of Rhein-Neckar Arena while 30,150 sat to watch the festivities.
The report cites a source that describes the most obscene way to get on a kiss cam imaginable:
I thought it did not look right. They had absolutely no inhibitions. Both pulled their pants down and went at it. The people around them apparently were not disturbed. The ushers noticed the commotion and urged the two to stop immediately.
The report states the two stopped at the urging of arena officials, only to get back to business at the half. At that point, they were ejected altogether.
The first question that comes to mind is why weren't they ejected the first time. I know my American puritanical sensibilities may be a tad archaic, but having sex in a public place where children are present may be cause for an outright dismissal.
You should never have to ask twice for people to cease and desist with the lovemaking. I would think that this is an instance where the first infraction deserved an ejection.
My second issue is with the utter lack of self-respect.
Again, I know I am a silly American, but it takes a depraved human being to just go at it without a care in the world. I don't care how drunk you are. I am of course assuming that alcohol played a role in this wild event.
We have found yet another way that fans can ruin a perfectly good sporting event. I thought streaking, hooliganism and fighting in the parking lots were the end of it.
I guess we now need signs in certain arenas that state, Please don't have sex, because there are people eating.
I can only imagine being at a Dodgers game and having to leave because there is fornicating going on. "Honey, we should leave. There are fans having sex near my nachos and beer."
You crazy and wild Europeans, I will never understand you. But you certainly know how to get kicked out of a game in style.
