Default "Eat em up Tigers" guy killed

I know he was a bum that just begged for money, but at least he was amusing.

I've seen a shit ton of facebook posts about it. I'm amused that on any other day, no one would have given two shits about him. He gets hit and dies, and now everyone wants to do something.

I don't wanna do anything, he was probably a drunk or druggie. But he was amusing, and wasn't pushy like a lot of them down there. I never game him a dime, and wont give a dime to his cause, but it will be different going to a game without hearing him chanting on the way in and out.

I read online about this. And the people interviewed said its not unusual for this stuff to happen- hit and runs. People don't care.

Its your own fault if your a bum most spend all the money people give them on things other than clothes, food and shelter but he will be missed by many due to the chants and energy he provided. He was the only bum I ever paid attention to that's for sure.

In one article it said during the 2006 world series game he brought in about $400 per game

Will there be televised gladiator style homeless guys fighting over the vacancies? I mean, it shouldn't just go to whomever. Otherwise anybody that wanted to claim that spot could just do a hit 'n run.

Where is OzBj69 to chime in and say that this guy is a POS and doesn't deserve any sympathy because he wasn't a soldier?

The difference is this guy actually had real connections with people here vs some dick bag that was on TV. I can respect somebody for caring about a person they've actually had interaction with. But the whiny bitches who cry when someone who they've never met or even seen in person dies is another story. So run along with your trolling.

Its far more than seeing a rerun of some show some person was in once and somehow feeling emotion for them.

Some people may even feel emotion for you if they met you. Probably not though.
