Mock the melting pot that is St. Louis Cardinals fans all you want – and trust us, we do (with affection of course) – but we can take solace in the fact that, to our knowledge at least, no one inside either version of Busch Stadium has been accused of doing what this Philly fan did last week:
Matthew Clemmens, 21, of Cherry Hill, N.J., was charged with assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and related offenses for the incident at Wednesday night’s Phillies-Nationals game. He was being held Friday on $36,000 bail.
Police say Clemmens made himself vomit on an off-duty police captain and one of his daughters after Clemmens’ companion was kicked out of Citizens Bank Park for unruly behavior, which included cursing, spitting and spilling beer by Clemmens and a friend.
Not having to watch a Jabba the Hut lookalike put two fingers down his throat and vomit on the 11-year old girl sitting in front of him is reason #932 that I’m glad to be a Cardinals fan instead of a Phillies fan.
