Chicago Car Salesman Fired Over Packers Tie

This story takes place in Chicago, but I could easily see this happening in Cleveland, or any city involved in a heated sports rivalry.

John Stone, a car salesman in Oak Lawn, Ill., wore a Packers tie to work at a Chevy dealership to honor his late grandmother who was a huge Packers fan. Of course, his boss was not amused and asked him to remove the tie. FIVE TIMES. Stone refused, so the dealership fired him on the spot.

Sounds to me like a Packers fan was trying to rub it in a bit to his Bears fan co-workers and the Bears fans got the last laugh.
