Fans got sick of the Vikings-Bills preseason game shortly after halftime and began amusing themselves with a wave, then upgraded the wave by tearing up their souvenir programs and tossing them into the air as they stood. The scene quickly escalated into general mayhem with fans throwing stuff all over the stadium, apparently injuring Twin Cities media figure Mark Craig in the process. Scolding tweets came in rapid-fire fashion from uptight media members apparently afraid of being attacked by drunk hooligans. Among the gems was this tweet from tight-assed Pioneer-Press writer Brian Murphy:

Well everyone can’t be as classy and virtuous as you Brian. Some people have to work at actual jobs for a living and they enjoy unwinding. Doesn’t make them all miscreants. This guy got his ass kicked a lot in grade school, you just know it. And with a name like Murphy I’m guessing he’s thrown back his share of brews. Rooting for a couple of these patronizing media jerks to get their cars overturned in the parking lot and set on fire.
