BTW, the only reason we were allowed to stay is the usher: He told the guy to drop it beacuse if he didn't he would tell the WHOLE SECTION he got his ass kicked by a woman brought in by a wheelchair.
Heh.

Nope. Some guy 2 rows in front of my Mom.
He was obnoxious and kept standing at inappropriate times, sang stupid stuff during the National Anthem, blocked my Mom's view, etc. My guy and I TRIED to explain to Mom that this was the WS, to deal with it, etc. As soon as we turned our back, she hobbeld up (she was on the aisle), and WHAP, smacks this guy across his freshly red-painted head and says "SIT DOWN! AND WATCH THAT LANGUAGE!!!!". Then hobbles back to her seat.
Funny: yesterday I was MORTIFIED. Today I can't stop laughing about it!
PLUS: it was a great game!

What did the guy do and all the people around him do after your Mom hit him?

He started screaming "Call Security". The usher did because he thought the guy had done something to my Mom, not the other way around. When security came and he found out what happend, that's when he (and the 2 security guys) started cracking up. The people in the section had no idea what was going on. His friends were all outraged. He just kept screaming "Keep her away from me! Make sure she doesn't hit me again!!".
The usher told him to sit down and shut up and learn the words to the Anthem. Or he'd tell everyone my Mom kicked his ass.
