Food Fight

The Denver Post ran this quote today:
"Your average Rangers fan is not going to carry a plate of sushi to his seat for fear of being beat up."
Andrew McDonald, a 33-year old Rangers fan, on the difference between some of the ballpark food being served at this year's World Series.
So, in Texas, they beat you up for what you eat? I can think of a zillion reasons to root against the Rangers. Apocryphal or not, this mentality neatly wraps them all up and ties a bow on them.

Please don't beat me up for the bow.

Just hilarious. Actually, most Giants fans won't eat the sushi, either. In a related story, I came across an on-line news article that talked about the traditional WS mayor's bet. The piece described that the mayor of SF was putting up dungeness crab, San Francisco sourdough bread, Ghirardelli chocolate and a case of Anchor Steam beer. The mayor of Arlington was putting up bbq dinners from a certain ribs joint, calling it some of the best in Texas. In the comments section, a massive arguement erupted amongst Rangers fans about who had the best bbq in the Dallas area.

Giants fans were asking, "You're in your first WS ever, and you're arguing about bbq?" You bring the bow, I've got the ribbon. :)

I forgot to mention that the bbq place was a chain of restaurants.
