That's Boston, Not Milwaukee

So you go to the Pops concert. Fun, froth, toe-tapping...

Yah, so that is, here in Milwaukee.

Not Boston.

Concert-goers, and even Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, were caught off-guard on Wednesday night when a fight broke out on opening night at usually sedate Symphony Hall.

Television video of the fight showed two men struggling in the balcony -- one having his shirt pulled off -- as several people stood around them.

Lockhart briefly halted the performance, which featured Ben Folds, while the men were escorted out

Halt the show? Whaaaa???

He shoulda pulled out the score to West Side Story, found the "Rumble" scene, and played on!

Thou shalt not mention Roger Clemens at a Boston Pops concert.
