Evil! Evil! You are all evil. Haven't you seen the size of that gigantic bandage covering the victim's boo boo? I imagine he must have had zero stitches to close that horrific wound. He will likely have to undergo years of plastic surgery....or 15 minutes with me explaining to him that most chicks dig scars. Then he'll go out and create an actual scar on himself as he won't have a significant one from this farce as his horrific injury didn't even require a single stitch.
(sorry Andrew....as I wrote several times last night, I think you are correct in your assessment that Gomes was wrong and reckless, the victim should be made whole, etc. But I think you are wildly exaggerating the scale of the specific, tiny injury and the potential for worse injuries from a punted, 12-ounce aluminum can.)
First,according to the article,it wasn't a little boo-boo
"The older gentleman was struck directly above the left eye, suffering a deep laceration as a result."
Also,if it was an empty can,I'd probably agree with you.But,it was a 12 ounce aluminum can filled with beer.That had to hurt when it hit him in the face.
I'm sure it did hurt.
Which is why the Sox should and, I believe, will take care of this gentleman.
I'm not sure I buy the "deep laceration description from the article.
Judging by the pic, it's not bleeding all that much.
Head lacerations usually bleed like a mother.
If that cut went all the way to the bone, I doubt the guy would be able to see out of his left eye.
I'm sure we'll all hear about it, if things get litigious.
