Minneapolis Star Tribune: Have you ever done the total Internet, phone, and social media blackout, because you couldn't watch a game live, but you didn't want the ending spoiled? Here's the WORST way that can end.
Last week, 32-year-old Dan Drobac of Eagan, Minnesota recorded a University of Minnesota men's basketball game. Based on the schedule, it must've been the game last Tuesday between Minnesota and the University of Nebraska.
By Friday, he STILL hadn't gotten around to watching . . . and, somehow, he'd still avoided spoilers. Until a utility worker outside his house started listening to a sports-talk radio show, where the hosts mentioned the game's outcome. And Dan heard it.
So he responded by threatening to KILL the worker . . . then barricaded himself inside his house. A SWAT team had to be called in, and the cops eventually went inside . . . but they didn't find any guns. Dan's been charged with felony terroristic threats.
By the way, Minnesota beat Nebraska 84-to-65. Let's hope that didn't spoil it for you. And if it did, please refrain from causing a police standoff.
