While Cleveland comported themselves reasonably well last night, there were scattered incidents around the Q. One happened to be right in front of us.
A Heat fan paraded to the front row of the upper deck and started taunting the crowd, popping his jersey, taking it off and waving it around in the air. Cavs fans' reactions were right and proper: they doused him in beer. (And one young lady walked over and slapped him in the face, which was perhaps the highlight of the otherwise depressing and disastrous evening. Kudos to her.)
For the record, the Cavs report there was one arrest, four ejections, 12 shirts and 24 signs confiscated.
