First of all, big shoutout to the Washington newsroom. Nothing enables drunken buffoonery quite like the local media deciding to interview opposing fans at a home playoff game. I actually have a better idea for next time. Instead of asking the Penguins fan about his travel just spray him head-to-toe with lighter fluid and hand the degenerate Capitals fans a book of matches. That's the only logical step as far as I am concerned.
More importantly, let's not pretend that this was a group of of idiots chanting "you are faggots!". It WAS a group of idiots, but it was only one idiot that chanted a discriminatory term and luckily that chant fell flat on it's face faster than he will when he stumbles out of the building. I don't even feel comfortable criticizing this kid, because I know that in that moment - when no one else came remotely close to repeating his chant - he felt like the lonliest person on Earth. Just look at him. He put everything he had into that insanely clever cry for help and something inside of him died when it fell on deaf ears. You see how he goes silent immediately after and starts stroking his beard? It's a good thing he wasn't standing atop a bridge or he would have immediately dove off of it. Sure, he eventually continued yelling, screaming, and flashing derogatory hand gestures, but he loathed himself to his very core while he did. He should (and will) get berated up, down, and around the internet for dropping a HARD 'F'. However, while we go to great lengths to embarrass him and his friends on public forums, let's do so knowing that he that he was likely the biggest victim of his own insensitive attempt at a chant.
