And now for the 2013 version of Man Bites Dog ...
Of course you will not be in the least surprised to learn that this happened at a soccer match/riot in England, because A) it was a soccer match/riot, and B) it was in England. They don't call 'em hooligans for nothin', although in this case several other names come to mind, none of them Blob appropriate.
At any rate ... the heartwarming coda to this tale is that the hooligan in question tearfully apologized for slugging old Dobbin, presumably once he'd sobered up. Which at least makes him marginally more civilized than this guy.
Come on, now. You knew I had to go there.
