This from the AP:

A Boston Red Sox fan has sued the New York Yankees and two of its fans, saying he was attacked at Yankee Stadium last summer.

Charles Hillios says he was harassed by two Yankees fans who objected to him cheering for the Red Sox last Aug. 29.

The Massachusetts resident says in the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court, that security warned the Yankees fans to leave him alone. But he says the fans “viciously attacked and physically assaulted” him when he went to a concession stand.

According to the lawsuit, Hillios suffered serious injuries. It seeks unspecified financial penalties.

Tell you what, you go to the Bronx and root for the Red Sox, you have to expect some sort of beating. If this guy wins, I may sue the Yankees for making me listen to Cotton-Eye Joe every time I cover a game.

(OK, stop with your feverish do-gooder comments. I’m kidding. Sheesh)
