Way back when, she went to Dodger stadium to watch the Giants (her team at the time) and someone hit her over the head with an umbrella. And they were throwing beer and peanuts at her and her friends throughout the game.

I was in Philly for the Hawks 42-0 beatdown of the Eagles on Monday Night during the '05 season. I still remember the moment right after Bobby Engram caught the first TD of the game on the opening drive from Hass. Me and my friends (not even Hawks fans but a friend made white t's into road seahawk jerseys, they were pretty sick) got up for pounds and daps all around and the entire section started just verbally destroying us. It was equal parts amazing and scumbaggery. It didn't matter anyway, since the entire stadium was empty after the Reggie White Ring of Honor induction at the half. The highlight was an Eagles fan helping his sad, drunk friend down the stairs and as they're walking out the drunk stops and points to the skies and says "I'm sorry you had to see that Reggie." It was beautiful to think that the Hawks could finally cause this kind of pain unto others and not just me and my fellow 12's.
On the way out though, the few remaining Eagles fans were definitely ready for a fight. I've still never been to Oakland or San Fran, so until I do, Philly's got to top my list of worst treatment of road fans.

She said a lot of her friends purposely didn't wear Hawks stuff etc. And when the Hawks were WAY up on the scoreboard, the place was emptying out with the quickness. A bunch of Hawks fans moved down to the sidelines, and the usher says to her "Watch out down there, there are a bunch of Hawks fans" So funny. I heard the Stadium is pretty incredible. That, and they have a jail inside the stadium. Perfect.
I watched it at Sport, across from the Space Needle, incredible night. Best part of the game was Lofa getting the Pick 6 and doing the Boxing under the goal post, epic.

I went with a Philly fan who convinced me not to wear any Hawks gear and he was dead on. It didn't take long for the fights to break out, more than the law could handle. I don't know what the new one is like, but that place was dangerous during a loss.
