Stabbed over a game? DUH
John Mayor, a 45-year-old from New Haven, Connecticut, is from another school of thought...
He was at the Chowder Pot Restaurant in Branford soaking up some delicious American-made liquor when Monte Freire (pictured top) approached the bar to order a beer. Freire, from Nashua, New Hampshire, was in town with his buddies for a baseball tournament when they decided to stop by the Chowder Pot for a late supper.
But it seems Mayor wasn't happy that Freire rooted for the Boston side of the historic Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. The two began to argue, as baseball fans will do. But instead of manning up and going their separate ways -- do you really want to fight over who roots for the more virtuous set of millionaires? -- Mayor pulled a knife and stabbed Freire twice in the neck.
He then tried to bolt the building, but a manager chased him out back. By the time police arrived, Mayor was chucking his knife in the woods, then began fighting with Freire's friends.
