THANKS, BUT I’LL WATCH THE GAME AT HOME

By 12.07.06

Today at With Leather, I want to give special attention to some magnificent sports brawl news.

First things first: run — do not walk — to this MSNBC link, which has fucking AWESOME footage of Serbian fans at a basketball game throwing flares at each other and ripping the plastic seats out of the stadium, then flinging them onto the court and at each other. It's the awesomest thing I've seen all day, which is saying a lot, because I woke up at 5:00 a.m. and surfed porn for three hours.

Also of note: a pack of rabid UCLA fans assaulted a USC fan after Saturday's 13-9 upset, resulting in a man losing his eye:

[The victim] said he was taking punches from as many as 10 attackers, then "out of nowhere, I just remember seeing a flash of a bottle come across my face."… His wife also recounted seeing her husband's injuries… "The glass that hit his eye went through every layer of eye, severing it all, all the way to the jelly."

Wow, it's just not every day you read a quote about eye jelly… which makes this awesome Kentucky high school basketbrawl from 1992 almost seem tame. Almost.
