I'm in my 40's and have been to many emotionally charged sporting events, some of them I admit I was drinking at.
and many of these events occured when i was more emotionally invested in the teams and the sport. unlike my more casual fandom now.

so, um, yes. I do have an idea what the fans had to go through. both the sober and drunk ones.

and no I don't see how you can justify throwing thing from your seats towards and onto the ice.
boo all you want, but throwing things crosses the line, and even when I've been drunk I have been smart enough to know it's wrong.
