So the Boston Police are seeking charges against the clown who interfered with Sheffield as well as the beer-thrower down the row. The Sox have revoked his season tickets, and it seems that due process is working. The repeated video viewings seem to show that Christopher House, the perpetrator of this idiocy had, at least to the police’s eyes, malicious intent, and as far as I am concerned there seems to have been enough investigation to warrant these charges. I respect the Sox’ actions as well (and in fact called for them even without considering the fans’ intent), and hopefully this will all be taken care of peacefully and systematically. My first postings about this incident were understandably emotional, and about House’s intent I seem to have been wrong, so a mea culpa is in order. However, I still stand by my contention that players must restrain themselves from going back at fans in almost any situation imaginable: it’s their responsibility to literally remain above the fray, to not lower themselves to the level of someone like Christoper House, whose actions leave a black mark, however small, on the legion of well-behaved fans who visit Fenway.
