Vikings Fan Stabbed And Sliced 7 Times By Packers Fan Over Inflatable Mascot
The NFL is really a religion for some people, people LOVE their team, but cotdammit it should never be this serious.
The Star-Tribune is reporting that a Minnesota Vikings fan suffered severe head injuries after being attacked by a Green Bay Packers fan wielding a box-cutter.
The Vikings fan — Dave Moschel, a father of six — said he was sitting down to watch football Sunday night shortly after 7 p.m. when the 21-year-old suspect — who was arrested on suspicion of reckless endangerment and criminal damage to property — started trying to slice up the giant inflatable Viking in his yard shortly after Minnesota went to 5-0 on the season.
Moschel said he confronted the man, and in the ensuing scuffle he was sliced seven times with a box cutter. Perhaps the most harrowing part of the story is this:
Moschel said he’s lucky to be alive and so is the man who stabbed him. “Luckily, I didn’t have my concealed carry on me at the time,” Moschel said. “Ninety-nine percent of the time I leave the house, I never leave without it. And this is the one time I did. I’m kind of glad I did, because he would have been dead, and I would have had to live with that.“
With the increase in parking lot brawl that we’ve seen over the years, drunk football fans are becoming some of most dangerous people on Earth.
