So, any of you participate in this?
Didn't the Sox have to forfeit the 2nd game of the double header due to the riot?
Mike Veck allowed Steve Dahl free rein. Fun ensued!
I wasn't there---I won't pay to go to any game---but it was all over the news. End of an era!
Yep had to forfeit the second game, it is a disaster. I think there was a big fine as well. Largest crowd they ever had.
Eh, it was for a good cause though!
Awesome, Totally Awesome!
Funny as hell!
Disco still sucks.
There are a few disco songs I like to this day. But on the whole, I agree.
This has a very disturbing connotation for me.
Reminds me of the book burnings 85 years ago.
Definitively don`t like.
Even happened to this group of unknowns.
Okay but nobody on this forum was there? I remember it on the news, and the stampede/crush at The Who concert as well in Cincinnati (I think it was there)
I agree to both to the exact extent making agreeing to both kinda close to maybe possible or something.
I totally understand the ostentative ignorance towards a (rightfully?) disliked kind of art that, in the large, was made to be sold, not to stand behind it for itself (which can also be commercially successful - that never is the point), but I also ... dislike destroying stuff just for disagreeing with it or not liking it or something...
I was living about 15 miles from this so I was kinda near there.
I don't condone any forced censorship. Book burning and record burning are both wrong. I don't like disco, so I just avoided it, like I do with sports. Just as I am with TV---if I don't like a show, I don't call the station and demand it be taken off the air---I just don't watch it. It's MY personal choice. I don't force mine on anyone else, and I sure as Hell won't let anyone force theirs on me. Read or listen to whatever you want---just don't involve me. Applies to loud car stereos as well. Your rights only go as far as mine do. When I can't hear mine over yours, there's a problem. Even worse if it's disco, or it's modern equivalent, hip-hop.
That being said, Steve Dahl was funny as all get out.
It was Cincinnati. The TV show, WKRP, did a special episode on it. Because of this sad occurrence, festival (open) seating was banned across the US, opening the way for the likes of Ticketmaster. Life's safer, tho, and that's what counts. Theater/venue doors always open outward for a similar reason. A fire in a theater once caused a similar panic, and people were trapped inside as the doors used to open inwards. The handles/bars on the doors are known as panic bars or crash bars. People in crowds are like sheep. Having worked in that industry for over 50 years I know how it can happen.
Lol. I think the blowing up of the beached whale on a beach in the 90s that totally went haywire is funnier and even more grotesque. A chunk of whale crushed a car.
I can only imagine the stench.
Now THAT's a party!
My bad the incident was 1970, I saw it in the 90s.
Agreed. These days with huge tvs and the ability to pause live tv for a bathroom break, the best seat in the house is my recliner! Refreshments and snacks are loads cheaper, too.
