Has anyone else noticed the strange number of stories that have come out this year about sports fans falling to their deaths or incurring serious injury?
Here's five that have happened just in the last six months:
Drunk guy falls during Phish concert (It's not sports, I know, but it came up).
Those were just the ones that I knew about or came up in a quick search. It just seems like an abnormally large amount of people are flipping over railings this year. The year 2008 was kind of bad when two fans died in two consecutive weeks at Shea Stadium in New York.
Just be careful if you're going to be drunk (or a neglectful parent) at a ball game.
