Wow, heated debate!
Kicking the beer can was stupid, perhaps some one on the field should have said something to stop him.
A cut to the face or hands bleeds a lot because of all the small blood vessels that feed the area. They often look worse than they are.
As we get older our skin becomes thinner so it can tear easily. This cut probably looks worse than it is. This shouldn't have happened but I doubt this man was seriously injured.
I was hit right above the eye by my brother when I was five, it was an accident, I think LOL!
The doctor, his nurse and my mom had to hold me down while I had stitches. I guess I was a pretty strong little kid. I have spent fifty five years with this scar and some how managed to live a full life.
Since my brother was only six I thought it best not to get in touch with a lawyer ;0)
It was a stupid act but I don't think there was any malice involved. If it were me I wouldn't get in touch with a lawyer. I would like box seats to all the post season games and some tickets to the 2014 season. Green Monster seats of course!
Just some thoughts!
