"Eat spit!" Seattle cook taints Steelers fan’s burger

We know that allegiances run deep in the world of sports and, frankly, nothing can be more annoying than a loud-mouthed, obnoxious fan. Well, actually, you could be dealing with a bitter fast food cook with a little too much animosity on his hands and phlegm in his mouth.

A fast-food cook and Seattle Seahawks fan has been accused of spitting on a hamburger ordered by a man wearing Pittsburgh Steelers attire.

Kittitas County sheriff’s deputies say the 37-year-old customer was with his daughters at the Port Orchard-area eatery on Saturday. He reportedly traded remarks with an employee about Super Bowl XL in which the Seahawks lost to the Steelers.

When the customer opened his food container, he says there was spittle on the burger. He demanded a refund and called the fast-foot outlet’s district manager.

The manager told deputies a 24-year-old man might be responsible. The next day, deputies went to his house and smelled marijuana. The man was released after being booked for investigation of fourth-degree assault and possession of marijuana.

Ain’t karma amazing!

Skip To My Lou claims he’s not a spitter

Rafer Alston was arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault and public intoxication on Sunday in Houston for allegedly getting into a war of words with a parking lot attendant after Alston’s car was towed. Alston was also accused of grabbing, shaking and spitting on the attendant during the altercation. Apparently, his car was illegally parked and he didn’t pay which tends to get under the skin of most parking lot guys from our past experiences.

On Monday, Alston was outta the slammer and he was not to happy about his unscheduled detour from the big ballin’ lifestyle and says that he was falsely accused and arrested.

We got into a shouting match. My car was towed and I was basically asking the parking attendant where he had my car towed to,” Alston said in a story on KRIV’s Web site. “There were no hits, nothing transpired. The guy runs off and yells down the street, like, he needed an officer over here. Before you know it, the officer puts me in cuffs and takes me downtown.”

“I asked the guy what was I being charged with and he said public intoxication and assaulting someone, and I said, ‘I am neither of those,”‘ Alston said.

We’re not quite ready to sentence Skip To My Lou to a ferret leggin’ just yet over the supposed saliva slinging; after all, parking lot dudes don’t usually have the sunniest dispositions in the first place. In fact, we can totally see how this has the possibility of being a case of a nobody trying to get some free cash from a somebody. While we going to hold off on labeling Alston as the next Roberto Alomar, we are going to figure that the public intoxication charge will probably stick. After all, at 1:45 a.m., there’s not much reason for a pro athlete to be out and about other than getting blitzed.
