This is a pretentious bit of hipster douchebaggery. Seriously. Idiots who use things (sports fandom) to act like idiots are in everything. If this were aimed at sports fans who attend live games, your idea would have merit... if this kind of crap didn't happen at ANY EVENT where lots of people and lots of alcohol coincide. These same douchebags are at concerts, local and national. They are at carnivals and major festivals. They are at Tea Party rallies and Occupy #Whateverthehell . Painting Ohio State fans in such a broad brush, and then trying to imply that they are somehow WORSE than any other fanbase (Spencer Hall's team, Florida, as recently as 2009, had a fan hit an OSU player over the head and caused head injury/brain swelling, for example.) is intentionally dishonest and just someone being extreme for attention. I am not saying sports fans are this noble group of awesome dudes, I'm not even that intense of a sports fan, nor do I condone what any drunken douchebag does, but at least acknowledge you're writing about all of them and not targeting one team (That happens to be massively popular and will garner attention, MUCH more popular than our local teams), and then half cherry-picking information and half-drudge reporting (Exaggerating/making stuff up, like that the 2 year BOWL ban (NOT competitive ban) had nothing to do with problems with fans, but more about the economics of college football/relationships with boosters and alumni.
Get attention by having talent, not by trying to sling mud and hope some of it sticks. And again, I'm a very casual sports fan. I catch MAYBE 1 game a month, and only if I don't have something better to do. I can't imagine how angry this must make reasonable people who have genuine passion for their team.
And if you have read Spencer's site, you would know that it's mostly satirical and he has written scathing things about pretty much every fanbase everywhere. They make fun of everyone. And /his/ site is insulting /and/ entertaining. This is just insulting.
Either answer would be correct. Both Bertman's and Stadium mustard have and are official mustards for different Cleveland stadiums. Technically speaking, Stadium Mustard came first but Bertman's was sold in Cleveland stadium first, then switched to Stadium Mustard in the Art Modell era... so depending on the context both answers are right. Perhaps you should do some research before you call people idiots for no good reason. This information brought to you by Wikipedia and corroborated by Bertman's and Davis Food co.
