The depth of loyalty a sports fan has for his team can run pretty deep sometimes, even a little too deep in some situations. Such is the curious case of Kentucky fan Ed Wilson, who took offense to some of the comments made by Louisville supporter Charles Taylor, and decided that the best rebuttal was to be made with his fists.
While two fans fist fighting may not seem to out of whack–it happens quite frequently–it was the location of this brawl that has many shaking their heads. You see, it was reported Tuesday that the police were called to a dialysis clinic in Georgetown, KY, to break up this fight between Wilson and Taylor.
To make the matter even worse, Wilson was in the middle of a treatment, hooked up to a dialysis machine, when he decided that the negative comments being made by Taylor crossed the line. He told Taylor to shut up and then gave him the universal sign of hostility, the middle finger.
"I didn't talk to him about the ball game," Taylor said, who was waiting for treatment at the time. "I was talking to another guy about the game, (Wilson) was meddling and told me to shut up and gave me the finger."
The interruption by Wilson and the ensuing finger was enough to set Taylor off. He went up to Wilson, who was still hooked up to the machine, and hit him.
"I wasn't gonna take no more from him," Taylor added. "I went up to him and I hit him. Didn't hit him that hard, but I hit him."
Wilson, restricted by the machine, wasn't able to retaliate, but was eventually a good sport about it. He refused to press charges on Taylor, stating that a Kentucky win this Saturday over Louisville would be all the justice he needs.
