Phosphoric acid is right on. (see several posts back) It's an intentional accident ;*) Maybe if you hit a couple buckets of balls you get one hit with a short iron. Intentionally driving a ball hard enough to kill the poor beast the size of a moving bread box at 75 yards is......well, it's an incredible and unfortunate shot but true. It aint like he pulled a .22-250 out of his bag and pounded the poor bastard. Now that would get even me going. He got stupid. I forgive.

"Not to say that this only occurs in college sports, or is solely due to TV. I would say that the closest comparison elsewhere to student sections at college basketball would be the ultras at European football stadia, who are also generally younger, drunker, rowdier, racistier (yes, I have decided that that is a word) fans." posted by Chargdres Don't believe you have to look across the pond to European fan misbehavior. The NFL Raiders have an excellent example of excess hormonal enthusiasim, booze and other disgusting displays in their Black Hole. Then of course there's the 'former old Browns' Dog Pound that set another poor example of degraded fan enthusiasm. Crude, rude and obnoxious are nothing new by American sporting event fan standards. It's just the recent nauture and magnitude that's starting to ratchet up.

Maybe I'm way off base here but here goes anyway. MLB is granted monopoly and antitrust exemptions by congress. Because of this, the politicians have their boots (not foot) in the door prying out the steroid problems. Baseball itself was ignoring the situation and wasn't going to do anything so the presence of congress here seems fitting to me. The Pats on the other hand got busted. Fessed up. Got fined and punished. Now a senator wants to extract his pound of flesh. I don't believe the NFL has the same obligatory situatin that MLB has with congress. I never liked the Pats and probably never will. They called them dynasty. I never bought that either. Congratulations to them but winning 3 SB's by a total of 9 points is a real stretch not a dynasty. It's time to move on......
