A Real Fan (as in Fanatic) "A former minder of Cardiff City Football Club owner Sam Hammam was today banned from attending football matches for five years after setting off a hotel fire alarm to disturb opposition players on the night before a vital game." A bit extreme, surely (although his side did win, 1-0, in overtime). What's the worst thing you've ever done to an opposing team?

Liquid heat on their jockstraps. Works every time.

Annihilated them. Got out my death ray and vaporized them all.

No wait.

Haven't done anything nasty but there are lots of things that occur to me to do.

Like, adding salt to their drinking water (but that's out now in the wake of the heat exhaustion deaths of recent news).
Like, sneaking into the ski shack and loosening up their binding before the big race (damn, that was in Hot Dog, the Movie, not real life).
Like, giving them a false time for the game or false location.

But hey, sportsmanship prohibited me from pulling any serious stunts. Besides, its more fun to play pranks on your own team mates.

I wouldn't shed any tears for Neil MacNamara if I were you. He was/is a leading member of Cardiff City's Soul Crew hooligan firm. Good riddance.

Worst thing I've done? Me and a friend did the very same thing, in a college football game, five or so years ago. Most of the opposing team was staying in a particular hotel. We pulled the alarm and exited like mad. They went on to trounce our team's ass, tho'.

Well, there was that time I poisoned Michael Jordan's pizza (scroll down to #5), but that backfired.

I once broke a guys leg by slide-tackling him (legally) during a soccer match. It was a fluke, though, and I couldn't duplicate that again no matter how hard I tried. And there were times when I really wanted to break a guys leg, too!

Otherwise: what's the worst I'm going to be able to do? Shout "pitcher has a wienie arm" from the right-field bleachers?
