Shocker: War is not good for the human mind

So we have further confirmation that apparently going to war is not good for the human mind, or the human condition in general. You probably heard about Junior Seau, the Patriots veteran, veteran, oh so veteran linebacker being tackled on the sideline during Sunday's wipeout of the pathetic Arizona Cardinals. What's that, you haven't heard about it? Let me break it down for you like a fraction.

Kobus shows the Cardinals how to tackle

During yesterday's 47-7 old school tonking of the Arizona Cardinals, 31-year old Todd Kobus allegedly jumped from the stands and tackled Patriots linebacker Junior Seau. Kobus faces assault and battery charges as well as trespassing charges for his ill advised stunt. The 'allegedly' part is legal speak, there's no allegedly about it when thousands upon thousands witness the event live.

And now, the twist to the tale. Mr Kobus is US Military. I kid you not.

What, me? Drunk?!
''Todd Kobus of Attleboro, an Iraq war veteran, was arraigned in Wrentham District Court on charges of assault and battery and trespassing for storming the sideline and crashing into Seau, according to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office.''

From the Boston Herald

In a further, beautiful irony, the branch of the Military Mr Kobus comes from? Why, Military Intelligence of course!

''The charged-up Patriots [team stats] fan and Iraq war veteran who tackled linebacker Junior Seau during Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium said he just wanted to give his favorite player “a big hug. “It wasn’t malicious at all,” Todd Kobus told the Herald yesterday. “There was no malicious intent. My intent was to just give him a big hug.”

From the Boston Herald

Of course, Militry Intelligence! Naturally.

A further note on the game, Gillette Stadium security personnel were kept busy Sunday as there were a total of nine arrests during the game, with twenty two people being taken into custody. Police said the combination of alcohol, the weather, and an uneventful game were the main causes for all the arrests. Uneventful? Todd Kobus begs to differ!

POW! Right in the kisser!
