You Think You’re An Avid Sports Fan
I thought that I had heard just about everything when it comes to what a fan will do to support his or her team. In the cold of winter, fans will go shirtless with their favorite team's jersey painted on their body. Some will camp out for days to get a good ticket to a game.
This past weekend a small bar in St. Paul, Minnesota has taken their fandom for the Packers what some would consider one step over the line.
Blake Montpetit, the co-owner of Tiffany Sports Lounge in St. Paul, says he plans to cook a 180-pound black bear in a pig-roaster over hickory and charcoal on Sunday. He says his cousin shot it in northern Wisconsin during bear hunting season, which runs in September and October, and then froze it.
Reportedly, the lounge was unable to serve the bear because of health board violations. Patrons were able to take pictures of the bear. Maybe it's not such a bad thing that the Saints didn't make it this year!
