SAD WHAT THEY'VE BEEN REDUCED TO (via Bryan Francoeur):

Yankees fan accused of running down and killing Red Sox heckler (AP, 5/05/08)

A woman accused of running down a man in her car after a Red Sox-Yankees argument in a bar never hit her brakes as she accelerated toward the small group he was in, a prosecutor said Monday.

"She never braked, and she accelerated at a high speed for about 200 feet. She went directly at this group of people," prosecutor Susan Morrell said of Ivonne Hernandez, who is charged with reckless second-degree murder in the death early Friday of Matthew Beaudoin, 29.

Authorities won't describe the argument beforehand in Slade's Food & Spirits, but witnesses said it heated up when Hernandez identified herself as a New York Yankees fan. Like the rest of New Hampshire, Nashua, 45 miles northwest of Boston, is Red Sox country.

Leaving aside the larger numbers involved in EUs soccer conflagrations, I see little difference between these sports addled morons and the Europeans.

Anyone who acts this way due to sports team affinity is barely describable as human, and I doubt the "hecklers" were much better.

Now that they've got a winner, Sawx fans have taken to emulating the fans of the only other winning team they know or care about most. And considering what the "Sawx Nation" has produced and attracted, what's surprising is how infrequently this happens to them.
