Angry Bears Fan Blasts Metallica, Barbecues Jersey After Player Defects To Rival Team

It looks like Julius Peppers jerseys are the hot new barbecue item for Chicago Bears tailgates.

As the Bears-Packers rivalry -- raging since 1921 -- is among the fiercest in the NFL, it's no surprise that Windy City football fans were unhappy when Peppers, a free agent, recently inked a three-year contract with the Green Bay.

One disgruntled fan showed his disapproval of the Peppers defection by crafting a makeshift spit and blasting Metallica's "Seek And Destroy" as he set the defensive end's jersey ablaze. You can also hear him elicit a quick "Da Bears!" before the #90 jersey crumples to ash.

Another Bears fan went the simpler route by eschewing the heavy metal and the hanging device and just dousing a pair of Peppers jerseys in lighter fluid (audio slightly NSFW):

While the jerseys in the second video were helped along by some accelerant, perhaps the scariest thing about the exercise is the apparent flammability of NFL jerseys. Hopefully any cigar-smoking, booze-soaked Bears fans know how to stop, drop and roll.
