Argument Over Lebron James vs Michael Jordan Leads To Everyone Getting Stabbed At A Pittsburgh Bar

(Source) Three people were stabbed last week at the Ba’runi Hotel & Grille in Baden, Pa., in an instance of sports trash talk taken way too far. Michael Landeros and his nephew, Armando Encinas, were reportedly drinking at the Pittsburgh area establishment when they began engaging in heated arguments with fellow patrons. They debated whether LeBron James was better than Michael Jordan and expressed their distaste for the Steelers, Harmony Township police chief Jim Essek told WTAE, and Encinas began swinging a knife when police tried to defuse the situation. None of the injuries are reportedly serious, and both culprits were arrested. Landeros was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and simple assault, and Encinas faces charges of attempted criminal homicide and aggravated assault.

Knee Jerk reaction says these guys are psychos and probably should be locked up for a long time. But when you really think about, actually put yourself in their shoes, I sort of get it. There is nothing worse than being in a sports argument where you know you’re right and the other side refuses to relent. I mean MJ is better than Lebron, that’s not opinion, that’s fact. So if you sit at a bar with a Lebron shirt on and try to tell everyone Lebron is the greatest of all time, well then you sort of deserve to get stabbed. Next time don’t be so dumb and you wont get sliced up by Michael Landeros and his nephew. Sort of simple really. Don’t be an ignorant idiot and you won’t get stabbed.

Unrelated but sort of related, Anyone remember that Pittsburgh fan that got poisoned 4 years ago for talking shit at a Kitty O’Sheas when the Steelers were playing at Soldier Field? What ever happened to him? Did he die? Kind of a fucked up story but at the same time kind of a baller move to be walking around with poison in your pocket waiting for someone to badmouth the Bears.
