Being a Philadelphia sports fan has its reputation if you will, but things were taken to a whole new level on Tuesday as one fan was tossed from the stands by an umpire on the field of play.
Yes, Davidson had heard enough from a heckler, and asked security to remove the fan. It doesn’t happen often, but it’s actually the second-such instance for Davidson.
Helping to make the explanation of the fan getting tossed a bit less awkward was Simpson’s voice actor Hank Azaria. What transpired was pure comedy gold via The Rich Eisen Show, as Eisen asked Azaria if he’d read Davidson’s post-game summary of events in character. Or, to put it more accurately, in characters, as Azaria voices some of the more iconic characters on FOX’s long-running cartoon staple. Here, he runs through Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, Professor Frink, and of course Moe.

Eisen getting stuck on the fact that the heckler kept talking about the property he owned on 69th Street was also pure gold.
It is unfortunate that things were allowed to get to the point that an umpire had to step in and make the request. Heckling can be fun, and occasionally even clever, but a drunken boor is just that. And when you step into the realm of suggestive (or, in this case, explicit) language at what should be a family event, security should at the very least step in and issue a warning or two.
We can only guess that stadium security is as competent as the Springfield Police Department.
