A fan fight broke out during last night’s Red Wings-Blue Jackets game that ended in one portly Red Wings fan being put in cuffs as a chorus of fans berated him for having no chill. While it’s unclear on what sparked the fight, I’m going to guess alcohol and a deep-seeded insecurity with oneself.
As far as fight strategy, it’s common knowledge that having the lower ground in a stadium fight tilts the playing field. All it takes is one tug of the shirt to topple your opponent over the back of your seat and put him in a compromising position. Having the higher ground is like trying to fight on stilts–if you swing, you best not miss. Otherwise you’re putting yourself in a position to be dragged into the seats that were one row above your price range. Just a tip from a dude whose never been in a fight with a stranger at a stadium.
Let’s see how it plays out.
Note this instigator: “Hey you gunna make out or what?” If that isn’t the biggest bystander catalyst to throw some haymakers, I don’t know what is.
^The typical annoying ass girl trying to throw weak ass shots at the person trying to diffuse the situation. Insufferable.
DING DING DING! Round 2, featuring angry stadium cop.
It seems everyone got off without any consequences. Minus the public internet shaming. And that is a life sentence.
