    About a decade ago, one of our stringers covered a night football game at that stadium (actually, the old stadium at that location. It has since been rebuilt). After the game, he saw a guy heading toward him and he started running. The guy yelled "Don't run. I'm not going to hurt you. I might kill you, but I won't hurt you."

    Something real similar happened at my younger cousins' school last month in Mississauga, a Toronto suburb. Kids were stealing from football players' lockers, apparently the players caught them, and three students ended up in the hospital with stab wounds. As was a teacher who tried to break up the fight.

    Which three students - the thieves or the players, or one or two from each group? Just curious.

    We've had plenty of similar incidents over the years, minus the stabbings. It usually happens to baseball players. They'll park their cars at the field and get on the bus for an out of town game. While they're away, a bunch of thugs comes along and breaks into their cars.
    Not sure what kind of vigilante justice is administered, but it always pisses people off.

    To be honest, I don't know.
