Man robbed of Giants playoff tickets last night

Oct 22, 2010, 4:30 PM EST

But the real question is whether the thief booed him or vomited on him or anything during the crime:

A man was robbed of Giants playoffs tickets at gunpoint near AT&T Park on Thursday, police said.  The 29-year-old victim reported the robbery around 5:30 p.m., about a half-hour after the first pitch was thrown in Game 5 of the seven-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, police said.
It’s always dangerous to blame a victim for the crime, but man, if you have playoff tickets and you’re not in the park a half hour after the game has already started, well, let’s just say you’re accumulating a lot of Karma and leave it at that.

    It had to be a Phightins Phan, right? And they probably puked in the guys panda hat, put it on his head, put a Santa hat on top, pelted him with snowballs packed with batteries and booed him as he skulked away crying.

      That’s pretty good – I especially liked “snowballs packed with batteries”. But you’ll still need a TASER reference in there somewhere if you expect full credit.

        You mean the gun wasn’t a taser?

        Well, us Phightins Phans aren’t smart enough to remember that the Taser runs on batteries, so they didn’t reserve any. I guess they just threw the Taser at the guy’s face, knocked out his teeth and made up a sign to tell him to get them fixed.

        Full credit plus extra credit! A++!
