The Rivalry Gets Really Ugly

Saw this story on after logging out of my e-mail. It's tragic that an innocent life is claimed because of something as silly as people having a different taste in sports teams. In short, a female Yankee fan living in Red Sox country (Nashua, NH) was hanging at a bar and got into it with some Sox fans. An argument ensued, which "heated up" after the woman identified herself as a Yankees fan. Things moved outside, some Sox fans started chanting "Yankees Suck" when they saw a Yankees sticker on her car. She drives her car at the group to "scare them," and ends up hitting a guy, and he dies of severe head trauma. The woman of course had been drinking, which I'm sure escalated things to this tragic level. Hopefully something good comes of this.

Can't we all just get along?
