World Cup Fans Killed for Cheering

 

Two Thai fans were killed while watching the World Cup on television at a resort.

They were shot with a handgun by an individual at the next table who had asked them to settle down after they celebrated a goal scored by Italy.

Even though Thailand has never played in the World Cup, they continue to be devoted fans and watch the games on television and spend millions of baht(dollars) betting on the games.

  Baht isnt dollars  
 
1 US dollar = 38 baht (approx) so the amounts of money may be less than indictive in the story. one things for certain the killer will be getting the Death penalty if caught.

I thought internet slang was banned from headlines/summaries.

Well, maybe to you but it's all relative. A 100 US dollars might not mean a big deal to you but 100 baht might mean more to them there even if it's only worth 38 US dollars. We don't all compare our dollars against the US. We compare them to people in our own country.

  Maybe, he was a fan  
 
Maybe he was a fan not of italy. and the two was rubing it in his face, and he couldnt just sit there and take it. so what is a drunk man going to do, stand up for his team.

The author of the Article compared the baht to the us dollar in equal terms, so Jock was in the right to state the true facts.
