    Gunners fan hangs himself after United victory

    May 6, 2009
    An Arsenal fan hung himself following his team's 4-1 aggregate drubbing by arch-rivals Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final, police said.

    Arsenal lost 3-1 to United in the second leg of their semi-final tie.
    Suleiman Alphonso Omondi, a 29-year-old Kenyan living in the capital Nairobi's Embakasi neighbourhood, hanged himself in his Arsenal shirt after the match.

    "We were watching the match at Bamba 70 pub, and when Arsenal was defeated, Suleiman just walked out in protest and he was crying," Calvin Otieno, one of his friends, said.

    "We didn't know he was going to hang himself until this morning when we received the reports and came here to find his body at the balcony," Otieno said outside the deceased's home.

    Arsenal slumped to a 3-1 defeat at home in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final, capping a disappointing season for the Gunners who were already out of the Premier League title race early in the season.

    that`s just nuts!!!

    im thinking there must me more to it....perhaps he bet a lot of money on the game with some gangsters and he couldnt pay or something..so took his own life..

    it has happened a lot in China with people gamblin` with the triads and then being unable to pay up.

      THere are some pretty fanatical Rams followers on this board but i can't imagine anyone resorting to this behavior, although after the loss in super bowl 36 i did go into a major depression and gain 25 pounds.

      ramming speed to all

        Met a guy the other day wearing a Ram's shirt. Commented on it & he replied that it was the only clean one in his closet or he'd have worn something else. When I questioned him he said he didn't want to even talk about "THEM". Asked why, he replied they had let him down cruelly & he would be a long time getting over it. Couldn't figure out how, as Conference champs they had let anyone down & said so! And then the truth came out after much spluttering, "Besides, I lost 500 bucks on them!!!" Now, my question is: Is this a Rams fan & if there are any more like him out there can we send them to LA with a one- way ticket on a leaky boat??????? If you're not a fan when they lose, you're not a fan!

        When did you become a Rams fan?

        Curious to how this breaks down.

        When did your allegience to Rams begin? Are you an orignal LA Ram fan or did you jump on the wagon when the team moved to good old STL? Be honest folks. No harm in admitting to becoming a fan in 95. Locals didn't really have a reason to root before then. All that matters is we've seen nothing but good times for the most part. Ramming speed heyward!!!

        Now another Rams season has ended. Hopes, dreams and expectations of Rams fans have been fulfilled or dashed. For the Rams team, the burning of August has come to championship fruition or the bitter cold of winter is now a reality in the sense of goals not met.

        The faces and names will change. The competitive juices will flow. Goals will once again be set. The burning in August will return. The Rams team will live on.

        And what to become of the Rams fans....For them, it will begin again, of this, I am certain.

        The fond memories, from the youth of a Rams fan, are my proof.

        It is mid-november and the Rams are doing well. Life for a young Rams fan is good and football, the sport he loves, lives on.

        The football uniform from the age of four no longer fits. The Tops football cards are in a shoe box. The years before becoming a part of a team count not. The burning sensation from the most recent August has long since passed.

        A young Rams fan thinks not of these things, for now, they are tucked away as keepsakes. Years of practice and competing on the field of play would end here. The young Rams fan knows not of this. Certainly he would play football forever and the sport he loves will never die in his mind.

        For him it is now the last of an eight game season. It is late in the game, his team will not win. All the team can do now is erase the goose egg on the scoreboard.

        The young Rams fan is on the field, when the first string defense recovers a fumble, thirty yards from the opponents goal. He will never know why the coach calls for the second string offense and at this point he cares not.

        He breaks the huddle with the team and gets set at his halfback position. His number has been called and he concentrates on the snap count. He is determined to take the handoff and hit the gap hard on the right side of big Jim.

        The block that big Jim delivers opens a huge hole. The young Rams fan is quickly into the secondary. The goal line is ever so close and he knows he is going to cross it. Alas, a defender has other ideas and he tackles the young Rams fan just two yards shy of the goal line.

        Time is now of the essence as the young Rams fan takes the huddle with his teammates. "Let's run it again" he says to the QB, for he knows he can score the touchdown behind the block of big Jim.

        Big Jim agrees and the QB barks out "32 smash on two"

        The young Rams fan and his teammates break the huddle. This will be the final play of the game and season. As he breaks out of his stance and takes the handoff, he sees a strong push by the goal line defense. On the right side of big Jim, the young Rams fan is small and quick enough to dive into a sliver of a hole.

        At the end of the play, under a pile of bodies, lies a young Rams fan. For a moment,...
