Dumb and Dumber: Two Rams Fans Fall From Stands While Fighting Over Used Sneaker


Finally, something for those Rams beat reporters to write about.
  • Finally, something for those Rams beat reporters to write about.
The story yesterday about two men falling from the stands at Edward Jones Dome prompts a number of questions.

First, a quick recap: The men reportedly fell while fighting over a shoe as Rams players handed out equipment and other apparel following the team's 28-6 loss to the 49ers and wrapping up a dismal 1-15 season. After plummeting about 10 feet and landing in the gangway leading to the locker room, one of the victims got up and did not require medical attention. The other remained in the hospital as of last night.

So, those questions:

1. How much is a used shoe from a Rams player worth? Is it enough to pay the emergency room co-pay? 

2. Any chance the injury-prone Rams could sign the guy who wasn't hurt from the fall? Team could use some toughness.

3. If you're the guy in the hospital, how do you explain your injury to friends/family? Do you make up a story, or tell the embarrassing truth -- that you were at the game, that you fought over another man's used sneaker?

4. Does this qualify as the most exciting highlight of the Rams season?
