Some arenas throw Banana's...some throw hats....some throw squid...

Another story blown out of porportion by the media...Funny how his comments to Avery never escalated to anything...
Were they worried that some town might be torched or a group would protest that its racisim.

Time for politicians and leaders to stop cowarding behind closed doors....
