I have four brothers and the oldest one is known to stretch the truth a wee bit.
He flew out to a playoff game in Boston a few months back with his girlfriend and when he returned, it was obvious that he had been in some kind of physical altercation. His face had very deep scratch marks in it which still haven’t healed completely. This prompted a sibling investigation.
According to him, it became a little spirited in the fan section between himself and some Boston fans. Now he’s a loud and obnoxious fan, albeit friendly, and I could see where this part might be true at most any game he would attend.
However, he claims that this group of Boston fans jumped him, took off his shirt and scratched him all over the face and back. No punches were thrown. HUH? Not one punch, just scratches…
I ask you… What group of guys fights by removing someone’s shirt and scratching like a bunch of pansies?
When pressed for details on the story…he can’t give any.
I don’t believe a word of it. None of that happened. It’s a lame attempt at a cover-up.
