Fans sometimes take games far too seriously, placing themselves in the middle of the action, when they should simply be observing it instead.
Alcohol often plays a role, as does pride, with fans attempting to puff their chests out to impress their friends. That’s what happened during Tuesday’s Lakers-Nuggets game at Pepsi Center, when fans got into a brief fight in the stands.
It began when the two exchanged words, and it escalated when the Lakers fan threw a right hook that connected. Others stepped in between the two before the Nuggets fan could retaliate, but a female Lakers supporter snuck in a suckerpunch at the end as well.
Just so unnecessary.
