During tense sporting events, like the Cavs versus Celtics games in the Eastern Conference Finals, there are always fans so passionate you're a little afraid of what might happen if their team lost. Well, one man in Canton took his love of the Boston Celtics a little too far.

On Tuesday, at the Oak Glen Apartments, 4700 Cleveland Ave NW, a man clearly didn't realize what city he was in when he pulled out a knife and placed it against another man's throat for making disparaging remarks about the Celtics, according to police.

Quick reminder: the Celtics were up in the series 1-0 at the time, and are now up 2-0.

It's unknown at this time if any arrests were made.
