A Chicago-area man that went to Jacksonville over the weekend to watch the Jaguars-Bears game was killed in a bar stabbing, according to Jacksonville police.
The Florida Times-Union reports that William C. "Chris" Pettry, 42 died after being stabbed inside a Fionn MacCools, an Irish-themed restaurant in a downtown mall.
The police arrested a Jacksonville resident and placed him in jail on a murder charge.
The stabbing came after Pettry was "involved in a disturbance with two other subjects." His wife mourned the man's loss on Facebook.
The bar was located near a hotel that Bears fans took over as they traveled to Jacksonville.

Why are you going to jacksonville to watch the bears play? That's random but such an unfortunate story. I wanted a story on real sports about fan violence. This is so crazy.
If dude lives in FL the landing is a decent place to go to watch a game....and Chi was playing the Jags.
