    Two fan brewhaha doozies posted by the Big Lead this morning:

    Who would think that the U.S. Open was a good place to get your ass kicked?

    I was watching the US Open match when it happened. Djokovic turned and started looking up in the crowd to watch the ongoing brawl. His opponent, Petzschner, turned his back to the whole thing. The look of Djokovic’s face was hysterical.

    Damn, security goes after the young guy with a vengeance and the old fogey who provoked it basically gets a pass. 'Course it took about 25 seconds to become veritcal again after tumbling into the row of seats below.

    The old fogey didn't provoke it. He just made it physical.

    Even without sound you could tell that young guy deserved a beating. Clearly everyone around him wanted him gone.

    Who knew that Ron Artest was into tennis?

    Sure, he looked obnoxious with all his hand waving and gestures, especially since he was arguing with a woman and an older guy. But I'd still like to know what they were arguing about before making a call.

    I'd also like to know what the punk said to set the old guy off.

    And yeah, if you knock an old guy down, whether you deserve it or not, security is going to kick your ass.

    Gutless punk decides to break bad with an old guy and a woman. Hope he got gang-raped in the holding pen.

    Noon news in NYC just showed that clip and said young guys was yelling and cursing throughout the match and the lady asked him to knock it off. He started cursing her out and the old guy went after him.

    What about the punk's friend who was sitting next to him? Tell your buddy to shut the hell up and watch tennis.

    (And if I had a nickel for every time I told that to a friend...um, I'd have zero nickels.)

    Actually, it looked like the old guy came over and physically attacked the young guy. Old people and women can be douchebags, too, and it looks like three total in that video.
