Cubs and White Sox Fans Come Together to Kick Ass

Baseball can seem political at times, especially in Chicago where the rivalry between Cubs and Sox fans can get nasty. This isn't one of them.

According to the Chicago Tribune and Busted Coverage, a fan started a brawl and promptly got stomped during Saturday's Cubs-White Sox game at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox' home park.

The Tribune claims some money fell out of a woman's purse and the guy picked it up and refused to return it. Busted Coverage says the man had heckled the family of the guy in the Jim Thome jersey the entire game. Watch the video, the offender is wearing black, and the guy in the Thome jersey looks as big as Thome or Carlos Zambrano. Cubs fans and Sox fans came together and pummeled the guy for a long time before security breaks it up. Then the guy made a further spectacle of himself when he was led away by security, doing a bunny hop.
