When I told him to shut up he claimed that I was just as bad as she was for bringing her to the game, and proceeded to throw peanut shells at the two of us for the rest of the game. Eventually she started crying during the fourth quarter, which he again loudly made fun of. Dude was hammered, but that's the closest I've ever come to fighting a stranger in public and just thinking about it makes me angry all over again.
I'm all about this announcement, provided they don't cramp the people just having fun with rival fans.
That sounds like that guy was a dick. Especially throwing garbage. I would have probably said something. That said, there is etiquette for opposing team fans. The ones who are being really loud and extra supportive are going to piss their neighbors off. I used to go to BYU games at Air Force and CSU and we tried to be a bit more reserved.
