So here was the highlight of my Saturday trip to Bowling Green.
During the first half, a group of about 5 Western Kentucky students were sitting a few rows behind taking jabs at Ball State. Their comments were pretty lame, so me, my brother Grant and friend Kyle pretty much ignored them. As we came back in for the second half, the most drunk of the kids gets in my face and says, "Ball State sucks dick." Cool. So I say, "Oooooh, big talk." And keep on walking.
So either you're thinking, Phil, either you're a pussy or you're the better person here. Look, I'm not a fighter and I'm certainly not drunk. I have no reason to fight this kid whatsoever, but I feel at this point he's looking to brawl. And we get that answer a few minutes later.
After I stood up and started celebrating a big Ball State play — the play before the first touchdown of the second half — the kid throws a beer can at me. I choose to ignore it. On the next play, we score, I cheer again and he tosses another beer can at me. Well that's enough.
I stood up, looked at him and said, "Hey what's your f*%&*n problem?" And I'm paraphrasing the rest here but he then said to me, "You wanna fight? We can take this outside."
Well that was fast. Clearly someone wanted to brawl. And to that I said, "Why in the hell would I want to fight you? I have absolutely no reason to." And, here's my favorite part, he followed with calling me a pussy and putting his hands up in the triangle to show it and did it with a little tongue action. And I started laughing and said, "Are you kidding me? What are we, in seventh grade? Get out of my face." After a few more verbal sparrings, and apparently about 1,000 cuss words from me, the police showed up and escorted the kid out of the stadium.
I typed all of that, and I know everyone's disappointed, so I apologize to everyone for choosing not to fight. Most people probably would have, especially with the beer cans being tossed. But whatever, the kid was the just hammered drunk and being a jackass.
I definitely would've taken him though. That's a given.
