Preseason football is comprised of exhibition games, a series of friendlies, if you will, between two teams gearing up before it starts counting for real.
However, there was nothing at all friendly about what occurred in Arizona just hours ago.
According to ABC15.com, a man was shot in the face during the third quarter of Friday night's game between the Raiders and Cardinals.
The incident, which began as an argument between fans, took place in the parking lot outside University of Phoenix Stadium at roughly 9:30 p.m. local time.
The 30-year-old victim was transported to a hospital, and is in stable condition. The shooter, whose motives have yet to be released, was taken into custody for questioning.
