Super Bowl memories for most fans are usually forgotten pretty quickly. Sure, we might remember who played, and who won. And often those are the only memories that remain. Unless your team was in it. Then things are different.
Two years later, it seems as though one particular Seattle Seahawks fan has a lot of unresolved feelings over his team’s loss in Super Bowl XL. Or so it seems. This 24 year-old Seahawks fan, and a cook took things to a whole new level. He was arrested last week for allegedly spitting on the hamburger he was preparing for a man who just happened to be wearing Pittsburgh Steelers attire. And no, that wasn’t the restaurant’s “special sauce.”
Deputies said the 37-year-old man in Steelers garb took his daughters to a Mile Hill Drive fast food restaurant Saturday evening, and "began trading friendly barbs about his team and their victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL," reports said.But no, it wasn’t a joke. When the Steelers fan opened his burger, he saw not just meat and bun, but also a nice big “loogie.” That’s when the fun really began. Rather than just throw away the burger, the Steelers fan got the authorities involved. When the deputies went to see the loogie maker, they smelled pot coming from his house. And that’s how he ended up being booked for fourth-degree assault and possession of marijuana.
One employee told the man that he'd "better not say that to the guy that's making your food," but the man thought it was a joke, reports said.
Eventually, the man confessed to spitting in the 37-year-old's hamburger container to "gross him out ... because he was a Steelers fan," deputies said.That’s right folks - - spitting on a customer’s burger will get you fourth-degree assault. So that’s the lesson of the day: if you’re going to spit on someone’s burger, don’t taunt them first.
