    Code of conduct

    What is acceptable conduct at sporting events?

    The linked Sports Illustrated article is responsible for me bringing up this topic.

    Lesbian kiss at Mariners game sparks controversy - MLB - SI.com

    As the Mariners played the Boston Red Sox on May 26, Sirbrina Guerrero and her date were approached in the third inning by an usher who told them their kissing was inappropriate.

    On Thursday, after an internal investigation, the Mariners said in a news release that their seating staff had acted appropriately, and the couple was approached because of their behavior -- which included "making out" and "groping" in the stands -- and not their sexual orientation.

    In the release, the Mariners said the women were told they could continue to kiss, but that they had to "tone it down."

    Since the incident, her job and her past have come under scrutiny. She works at a bar known for scantily clad women and was a contestant on the MTV reality show "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila," in which women and men compete for the affection of a bisexual Internet celebrity.

    "People are saying it's 15 more minutes for my career," Guerrero said of the ballpark furor, "but this is not making me look very good."

    Re: Code of conduct

    A ballgame is no place for making out......



    Unless both chicks are hot.

    I don't care whether you're straight, gay, bi, or asexual--I don't want to see you making out at a ballgame.

    Re: Code of conduct

    Uh, don't most sporting events have a kiss cam during time outs where they actually encourage couples to make out?

    Never seen one called the grope cam, but yes, they do have a kiss cam.

    Re: Code of conduct

    I had a lady breast feeding her 6 month old baby infront of me at the Twins Yankees game last Saturday. Not so bad except it was 11pm and the kid was screaming. Take your baby home, it is way past his bed time.

    Re: Code of conduct

    I suppose a kiss here and there is fine. But I'm sure these two were going a little bit farther than that. So, I think it may be justified in complaining and that goes for whoever it was.

    Re: Code of conduct

    I, for one, support two women making out at any ballgame, for as long as they want and as far as they want to take it. But only if they're a couple of hotties. No butch or chunk lezzies.
