I need to check on this. Can I make a joke if the guy's over 18, or is it still not allowed?

I guess this increases the chance of a die-hard Raiders fan being in attendance at the Bears game.

All joking aside though, this is pretty terrible. I originally heard this on TV and the reporter said it was a 20 year old, this says 27, so not sure which is correct. But either way, pretty awful.

Yeah it's fair game especially when there's a decent chance it was a Raiders fan, but the people who were laughing about that 2 year old at the Lakers game are fucking sick in the head.

I don't know. I'm thinking sentiment is leaning toward sympathy on this one, so I guess I'd better go that way, too.

Poor guy.
