Philadelphia sports fans may have a new horrible thing on their bad city resume. Following the Eagles’ 34-20 win over the Detroit Lions, a Lions’ fan claims he was beaten unconscious by a group of Eagles’ fans. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
As he walked along Pattison near the Xfinity Live complex, a group of men in their 20s in Eagles jerseys began shouting and throwing snowballs at him.
“I tried to keep my head down and avoid them,” he said. “I didn’t want to give them the satisfaction.”
As he crossed the street, heading toward the train, six of the men blocked his path and continued to scream at him.
“I was like, ‘Are you guys serious? You won, enjoy it.’ ”
The smallest man slapped his head from the side. Another man then pushed him from behind, and the group bum-rushed him, he said.
The unidentified victim says he tried to defend himself, but felt like he was being punched and choked on the ground. When he woke up, another Eagles fan was there to help him. The victim claims he had snowballs and other objects thrown at him throughout the game and the person he attended with had left the game early.
