    Bummer. I was hoping it was one of those, "he lived because he was drunk and limp" kinda stories. :(

    Cue the "limit beer sales in the upper decks from now on" rule.

    Yeah, its pretty sad. Unfortunately, you just got to know that high up+alcohol=danger.

    But I don't think beer needs to be cut back, because, honestly, people need to be responsible for their actions (unfortunately, this guy was). The bad thing is, I bet anyone here $100 that his family files a lawsuit against the Braves and TF.

    I prefer "desensitized to stupidity". Sure, I feel sorry for the rest of his family, but not for him.

    Had the story been " Man falls to death due to poor construction of stadium stands" or something along those lines then I'm sure more people would feel a lot more sorry for the fella.

    But when it's "Pissed up arse larks about and does himself in", personally, I think he brought it on himself. When I'm drunk as a skunk I don't fanny about in high places.
