East Coast bros from the shanties of northern New Jersey, Westchester County, and Long Island, when not supporting the NFL’s Jets or Giants, love their Syracuse Orangemen and Notre Dame Fighting Irish football programs. Both teams represent the absolute best of these men: the humble, hard-working, and respectable attitudes that embody their respective regions.
But sometimes these bros make mistakes, because they are human and fallible to lesser mens’ urges, and can occasionally be found in gentlemanly quarrels at athletic events. When Syracuse played Notre Dame in a football contest on Saturday night at MetLife Stadium, one such confrontation occurred, with fans of both sides disagreeing, forcefully and with fists, about the integrity of their opponents.
The above video captured the disagreement. Punches flew through the early-fall air. After a group of what appears to be Syracuse supporters made their slights known, a Notre Dame fan responded in kind with one wayward blow. The ensuing row then dropped to a row of other, equally respectable fans below.
“Cocaine is a hell of a drug,” one man noted. It is, of course, but virtues and pride are stronger.
