Bank Robbing Sharks fan...maybe he needed money for gm. 5 tix?

I just tried to buy tickets for game 5 and seats in the upper tier (220-225) are $129 ($142 w/ fees)! Once again the prices are over double what the actual ticket price is. I know because I am a 10 pack holder and was at Friday's game and the actual ticket price was $68! I don't understand how Shark fans can afford to cheer the Sharks in person.

Which leads me a story I heard on Wednesday. Apparently a Shark fan robbed a bank. I don't condone robbing banks and hopefully this guy gets caught, but with playoff ticket prices as high as they are (and gas and food so expensive) I can see this kind of desperation occurring in fans. Here's the news story:

Well, the person was described as African-American.


Plus they said 5'10. Grier is listed at 6'1

So the height is wrong and it also says "slim build" while Grier is a tank (227 lbs). So the only apparent connection is that the guy is black.

A little beneath norcal humor, no?

Ehh racial humor is one thing, but it's not the greatest thing to make a racial joke about a criminal. Even if you weren't meaning to say the crime isn't tied to his race. At best you are saying "they all look the same" and at worst you are saying "they all look the same and are criminals." Neither is really funny and both are pretty insulting.
