SJ - October 8, 2021
The White Sox forgot that the postseason started on Thursday and didn't show up for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros. They lost the game 6-1.
Astros fans were ready, not just for the game but also for throwing punches at White Sox fans. One fan found that out the hard way during Game 1.
As you can see in the video he was giving it to Astros fans as he was walking up the stairs. An Astros fan decided to dump his beer on the White Sox fan's head.
The White Sox fan responded by shoving the Astros fan. Another Astros fan stepped in and threw a big right hand, without spilling his own beer.

I'm not going to say the White Sox fan deserved to be punched, although there's probably an argument that could be made. The beer on the head seemed like a fitting punishment for acting like a jackass when your team is losing to me.
Maybe the shove by the White Sox fan warranted the right hand, maybe it didn't. I'll leave that up to those who make the rules.
