crazy fan

did anybody see that fan with the nerf football in the first half come out of nowhere and throw the ball back and forth? i thought that was part of the game and he was part of the event staff or something?.. but then he ran off - anybody know what happened to that guy?

He had to be event staff, didn’t he? What about the idiot that hit the ref – that had to be intnetional.

You mean the guy on the court or the guy in the stands that hit the ref. Dude in the stands got escorted somewhere by security and the cops, but came back a few moments later.

the guy on the court... i was watching him and i had no idea what was going on.. what happened to him?

not sure, but Norm sucks at throwing the football.

lol i like your signature pcon…

It was a guy in the Alumni section who threw it sitting in the front row…

I think…

oh yeah… sf4 - that was definitely intentional… it shouldn’t have happened, but was funny nonetheless

Yeah, it was funny. I was expecting a T for it, really. Luckily, all we got was a warning.

yeah... i got worried about that too... i thought lutz would get kicked for the game after mouthing off the refs in the first half - i think i could see him saying "get that ref out of the game.. tell him to go home.. this is BULL****".. i was really surprised he wasn't kicked out, and also - it seems like we get a warning for throwing stuff on the floor almost every year when we play cincy.

I thought it was hilarious, but obviously the ref didn’t think so. He seemed to make a LOT of calls against us for the rest of the game.

I don’t like the fact that we could have gotten a tech if something else had gotten thrown on the court… Of course I don’t want to see anyone throwing anything, but one of the Cincy fans could have thrown something down there and gotten his team two free shots. That obviously could make a huge difference in a one point game…

It was funny seeing the ref get hit but damn stupid on the fan’s part to do it, especially at that moment.

It was a comedy bit staged by Norm and some guy posing as a vendor during a time out.

The vendor was standing outside the tunnel holding a large box full of Lays potato chip bags. Norm was over there with a green nerf football and motioned for him to “go long”. He put his box of chips down on the table and started running out to half court. Norm slung the nerf ball, but with those gloves on, missed him WIDE LEFT in front of the radio announcers. As soon as he threw the ball, Norm grabbed the chip box and started running up the stairs in 119 tossing out chips to the fans. That’s when the vendor saw him from across the court and started chasing after him and up the stairs.

Norm also had some fun with a water gun.

They do that exact same bit at Bobcats games. I’ve noticed Norm taking a lot of things from the Cats this year. The guy who is Norm is the Sting mascot too, you know, so he probably works closely with the Bobcats mascot.

So Norm is not a student? I though they had student doing the mascot thing(here and other schools).
