Raging Airline Passenger Duct Taped to Seat

An unruly Iceland Air passenger, apparently liquored up, began yelling at and spitting on other airline passengers. The other passengers took matters into their own hands, duct-taping the guy to a seat until the end of the flight (ABC News).

The unruly passenger was taken to a hospital where he was being treated for alcohol poisoning.

I have to say, I’ve never been on a flight where a passenger was so out-of-control had to be restrained or the plane had to be diverted. Sucks for the other passengers. Frankly, I’d probably have taken a swipe at the guy if he spit on me.  There’s nothing nastier than that.

There used to be a time where air travel was enjoyable. It is now just a means of transport; a method to get from point A to point B. It’s interesting that a person could get so loaded on a plane that they would become belligerent. Of course, there’s the more likely scenario of the guy being wasted before he even got on board the aircraft. If he was, there’s a lot more people to blame than just the drunk.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
