I've never had problems in the D. Last year during a rainy April Sox game at Comerica, Mrs. Hendu and I hit an upper deck bar to warm up and got into a shot drinking contest with some of the other fans. That was a blast and the only time I've seen Mrs. Hendu get "tipsy."

I'm pretty low-key though. Just wear a Sox hat and not a jersey or anything, and cheer loudly for the Sox but never get negative about the opponent or the city I'm in. So I've had a good time at every ball park I've visited fortunately.

I'd say the Yankees and Red Sox and even Cubs fans at the Cell are as bad. Can you blame Detroit fans for being rude though? I've been to Hawks games against an opponent other than the Wings, and the 'Detroit sucks' chant still breaks out. It goes both ways.
