  • Red Sox fan killed after argument with Yankee fan

    Just disgusting.

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nat...,1839323.story

    NASHUA, N.H. - After a Red Sox-Yankees argument spilled outside a bar, a Yankees fan aimed her car at a group of people to scare them and didn't brake, hitting and killing a man, authorities and witnesses said.

    The Yankees fan, Ivonne Hernandez, was arraigned today on reckless second-degree murder and drunken driving charges and was held without bail. She did not enter a plea.

    Hernandez, 43, was speeding early Friday toward a small group that included the man, Matthew Beaudoin, 29, and never hit her brakes, a prosecutor said today.

    "She accelerated at a high speed for about 200 feet. She went directly at this group of people," prosecutor Susan Morrell said. "She indicated to police that she wanted to scare this group of people. She thought they would get out of the way."

    Beaudoin died of massive head trauma at a hospital, Morrell said.

    Hernandez, of Nashua, was arrested at the scene. She said she had been drinking and refused to take a breath-alcohol test, said Morrell. Hernandez said she had been in an argument with the group.

    Hernandez's public defender, James Quay, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    Authorities won't describe the argument, but witnesses said it heated up when Hernandez identified herself as a New York Yankees fan. Like the rest of New Hampshire, Nashua, 45 miles northwest of Boston, is Red Sox country.

    Bartender Tanya Moran said the argument spilled outside, and at least one person in a group that included Beaudoin began chanting against the Yankees when they saw a Yankees sticker on Hernandez's car.

    Hernandez allegedly gunned her car and struck Beaudoin and Maria Hughes, 21. Hughes had only minor injuries, which Beaudoin's sister Faith said was because her brother shielded Hughes, a friend.

    Its sad that competitive sports cause people to make reckless decisions over stupid rivalries.

      I want to remind all Boston fans this has absolutly nothing to do with the rivalry. Hopefully we won't have anyone acting like this is the majority (or even a very small percent) of Yankee fans. Just a stupid (and possibly drunk, hopefully drunk, as I would like to believe a sober person wouldn't make such a decision) person. Hopefully she never gets to see another baseball game again. One of those cases where I wonder how they can find a lawyer that would defend such a person with a straight face.

        That's what PDs are for.

        I mean, honestly, if you're going to act like that, you shouldn't be allowed the privilege of watching the game.

              People are still responsible for their actions after they have chosen to get drunk.

                Sad story. Lets all remember, lets put it into perspective. When we all get very angry due to a blown save, or such, that it is only a game, a sport. What this Yankee fan did, is one person. Not a collective Yankee effort, as some people say when I have heard people say this line in my hometown...
                "Those damn Yankees do it again". This was ONE stupid person, not the whole Yankees organization plotting to kill a BSox fan.

                    This is like atleast the third thing like this that has happened and made it into the news, There was the Yankee fans who beat up a boston fan in I think in Jersey, There was a group of Bosox fans that beat up a Yankee fan in Boston, now this. It's really stupid to beat up someone or kill someone over a baseball team! I hope these are isolated insodents, and idiots don't do more stupid crap and ruin the name of the fans of two of the most historic baseball teams.

                        Wow...

                        A true example of how overblown this rivalry really is. There is no need to create a gang atmosphere with something like this. Of course, you'll always have certain people doing stupid things, but it's time to wake up and smell the coffee, not the alcohol. People need to think more often.

                        Please put things like this into perspective, folks.

                          I am well aware of football hooligism,but it's never been that bad over here I guess it's not as a allagory for old tribal battles or something like that. It's just never been as bad as violence in(real) football. and I don't want to see it get that bad! I don't want darts and flares thrown in the crowd, segragated fans and violence after the games. Not to offend our European friends, but that's not American!

                              How is this death an example of a rivalry overblown? If anything at all, it would be an example of the opposite of that.

                              A Longhorn fan recently got castrated by a sooner fan because of trash talking at a bar... is that overblown now too?

                              IMO, this has nothing to do with the rivalry being over/under blown. It has everything to do with a person getting drunk and doing something really stupid.
