The worst experience of my life

Let me start by saying I love my fair share of good heckling, and good-natured ball-busting of fans of opposing teams. And I also realize that you're bound to run into some harrassment when you sit in the middle of a rival team's bleachers wearing a bright red Red Sox Beckett shirt. But the stuff I heard/saw/got pelted with tonight was just outrageous, disgraceful, and horribly wrong and embarassing to the human race.

I sat in the bleachers in right center, section 39 row P seat 6 (I believe the people around me were "bleacher creatures"). Keep in mind these are ALCOHOL FREE SECTIONS. As soon as i stepped foot in the aisle when I arrived, I was greeted (along with my 26 year old brother and his 24 year old girlfriend) to a loud chant of "Asshole, asshole!" along with a Braves-like tomahawk chop. It was funny, I laughed, then took my seat. There was 1 sox fan in the row directly in front of me, and 3 sox fans in the row in front of him, so there were all in all a group of 7 of us, by ourselves, wearing bright red shirts in the middle of a sea of dark blue.

At first, the heckles were about Boston and the players, which is all fine. "Go back to Boston!" "Go back and drink your tea, have some chowdah, pahk the cah in hahvahd yahd". This was when the Yankees were up 2-0. Then the Red Sox started to pour it on and it was 5-2 after 4.  All of a sudden, any Red Sox fan walking up the aisle was greeted to a "Fenway faggots" chant. One time, a guy and a girl came walking up, and the whole section (39, which was also joined by the adjacent section, 41) "she's a slut!!". I thought that was a little harsh but still, they were losing, whatever.

An entire group of Yankees fans was standing up and yelling at the group of 3 sox fans in front of us, but when the group of Sox stood up, the cop came over and said, quite clearly to the SOX FANS, "if i see you standing up again I'm going to shove this stick straight up your ass" which drew a gigantic cheer from the crowd.

Then it came to be 10-3 and the shit hit the fan. One Sox fan in the group of 3 (2 rows in front of me) had a cigarette, so the entire section complained and got all 3 of them kicked out. The security guard actually raised his arms for the section to CHEER for him while he was kicking out the sox fans. On their way out, a Yankees fan elbowed a sox fan in the face, but the cop started yelling at the sox fan even more while the section hooted and hollared. Pretty soon it was just my brother, me, his girlfriend, and the guy in front of us. They started to harrass the girlfriend. They started with chants of "pussy, pussy". Then a guy behind us started yelling "hey, she's got her hair in blowjob handles!! (she had pigtails tonight)". Then all we heard for a while was shouts of "go back to Boston you fucking homos!" "Get the fuck out of New York you fucking cock suckers!". As the Red Sox kept scoring, I kept getting pelted with plastic cups, peanuts, and other shit. The dudes behind us kept calling my bro's girlfriend a bimbo, a slut, a whore, they kept calling us homos. We kept getting pelted. 

After more chants of "fenway faggots!", these guys behind my brother's girlfriend really started saying some nasty shit to her, just so many random sexual, horrible insults that she actually started to climb the bleachers to strangle the guy. My brother caught her and held her back before she did anything, but when she stopped, she burst into tears and started walking down the aisle and out of the stadium, in the top of the 6th which drew a massive cheer from the section, and the cops did nothing. We followed her, took some abuse from a bunch of yankees fans leaving on the way to our car (a lot were leaving, it was 11-3 at this point in the 6th). We were forced to take our shirts off in the car to avoid people jumping our car and kicking in our taillights. 

All three of us felt so used, so violated, and so pissed. She didn't stop crying in the car for a long time. Thank God my girlfriend didn't go, she wouldn't have been able to take as much as my bro's girl did before breaking down.

I realize that I was in the bleachers, wearing bright red shirts, and probably was inviting harrassment because of it. But that is taking it 100% too far. You don't shout out personal, disgusting, childish shots at people. You don't break people down emotionally and cheer when they start to cry, just because of what shirt they're wearing. You might as well just walk up to a black person and call them a fucking nigger. It's the same thing and 100% as wrong. I know Red_Mustang got beer dumped on him at Fenway once, and I realize 100% that every team has their asshole fans. But this was two entire sections of sober people, and I am still so disgusted. I would go back definiteiy, the view from there is great and the insults didn't infuriate me as much as make me sad for the human race. But please, don't bring your girlfriends there.

I forgot to mention this above, but before you click on the cut, it's a pretty long rant and has some bad words in it (mostly ones I am merely repeating from Yankees fans).
