Rubie caused this...

Quit bashing Yost or this may happen to your house:

Yost supporter starts fire in apartment
Talk about Brewers fever.A Franklin man took his enthusiasm for the surging National Leaguers to a new -- albeit dangerous level.The 21-year-old, a resident of the 3300 block of West College Avenue, became upset Friday night about a newspaper article that was critical of Milwaukee Brewers manager Ned Yost.Disgusted, the man then set the article ablaze. Unfortunately, other newspapers in his apartment also caught fire, causing $500 damage to carpeting but no other destruction. Not only does he need some new carpeting, but the man also was arrested by Franklin police for negligent handling of burning materials, a municipal ordinance violation. After being booked at the police station, the man was released to the custody of his grandfather. There's no word on what newspaper the man was reading or what exactly got him hot under the collar.

Coincidentally, the 3300 block of College Avenue is 10 blocks from my house. I was wondering why there were a lot of sirens in the neighborhood Friday night after I got home from the Brewer game.
