Are You Sure he Was a Bears Fan?

Sports illustrated has it's NFL stadium power rankings out. Based on several different factors such as food quality, tailgating vibe, team quality and fan IQ, was there any doubt which stadium would rank #1?

Best part:

What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?

"An old man who probably had season tickets since the Hayes administration kept yelling at us to 'Sit down, you kids act like you've never been to a game before? Sheesh.' Well, no, actually, we hadn't, because fossils like that guy have been clutching on to their season tickets year after year and keep out those of us who are actually excited to be there."

"I've seen beer dumped down the opposition's back and wet willies every time the Packers scored."

"Two older women in their late 70s were sitting behind two Bears fans at a Packers-Bears matchup. The Bears scored a touchdown and the Bears fans stood up and cheered. The two old ladies dumped their beers on them when they sat down. Hilarious. The Bears fans didn't know what to do."

"Because people can lose season tickets, very little trouble occurs, in fact, I have seen a Bills fan receive free beers from Packers fans. That doesn't really make up for being a Bills fan, but it is a start."

[Dooooooooowwwwwn....]

Ah, there it is. Coming in at #30 - third last - Yoooooour Minnesota Vikings.

Scrolling down past the overpriced ticket rating, mediocre food review, and short bus level fan IQ, we are treated to this:

What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?

"One man dropped his pants and laid his [Viking, um...helmet] on the head of an opposing fan."
Classy! I bet he was sober too.

"At the end of a game, the throwing of plastic bottles and half-full beer cups at a Chicago Bears fan with Down's Syndrome who wasn't moving as quickly as others toward the exit doors. It was the most disgusting behavior I have ever personally witnessed at a football game."

And judging by the Viking fan IQ rating, the person with Downs Sydrome was probably the most intelligent guy there.

BONUS:

What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?

"Tony Dorsett's 99-yard touchdown run."

Good thing SI didn't take the radio play by play guy into account. That would have pushed the Vikes all the way down to 97th place.

(Obnoxious Packer Guy is unavailable to comment, as he has not yet returned from his Thursday morning beer pong league.)
