    How stupid is this..

    2 dead in argument over Ala.-LSU football game

    1 hour ago
    EVERGREEN, Ala. (AP) Authorities say an argument over Saturday's Alabama-LSU football game led to the shooting deaths of a couple at a home in southern Alabama.
    Prosecutors identified the victims as Dennis and Donna Smith of Brewton. The shooting happened about 7 p.m. Saturday at the home of Michael Williams in the rural community of Owassa.
    Williams was arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
    Investigators told the Press-Register newspaper in Mobile that Dennis Smith, an LSU fan, called Williams, an Alabama fan, after Alabama's 27-21 overtime win and an argument ensued.
    The Smiths went to Williams home. Investigators said Smith had a pistol and Williams had a shotgun and fired. Donna Smith was a relative of Williams' girlfriend.

    This isn't the first time in recent years there has been a death/murder involving Alabama fan - right?

    Re: How stupid is this..

    So the two that were killed, called the shooter.

    And then proceeded to go to his house AND had a pistol?

    But this guy is being charged with MURDER?

    Granted, details are sketchy. But if somebody shows at my house, with a beef that his team just got beat (yes, irrational) and shows WITH a pistol - I think getting ahold of my 12 GA seems appropriate.

    Sad, stupid and whatever other adjective you'd like to toss in there.

    I can't remember the exact percentage, but spousal abuse almost doubles in Nebraska when the Huskers lose.

    Don't forget the chess match in Iowa City that resulted in a death.

    Re: It's just a Game

    I hate it when people tell me its just a game. Especially when it comes to the Cubs. Sorry but its more than just a game to me. I wouldn't go as far as these people did but I don't like to be around people when I am watching a game, especially a big one. I just get too emotional.

    Re: It's just a Game

    I gotta agree. It's more than a game when you get so emotionally (and financially) invested. It's certainly not worth dying for but it's a big deal.

    What's the big deal? I personally killed 3 people after our OT loss to Missouri a few years back and you didn't see me all over the news.

    Nope, it isn't a big deal. It really is just a game. I truly feel for people who can't understand that.

    Re: It's just a Game

    I partly agree. I get very emotionally involved as well as buy tickets and its an important part of my life, but all in all its a ways down my list of priorities in life.
