Too Funny

From the NY Post: A bench-clearing brawl broke out during a charity hockey game between New York City cops and firefighters on Sunday in Uniondale, LI.
“It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-70s,” quipped an NYPD cop who was at the game at the Nassau Coliseum. “I was waiting for [legendary Philadelphia Flyers enforcer] Dave Schultz to come out on the ice.”
The ugly scene erupted in the second period as referees struggled to control multiple, one-on-one fistacuffs. Sticks and gloves littered the ice during the disturbing incident.
It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out. The NYPD eventually won 8-5.
Although witnesses said fan loyalties were decidedly even during the game, a YouTube video of the thuggish display captured fans loudly chanting “PD sucks, PD sucks” during the brouhaha.
The brawl led to a 25-minute delay as equipment was picked up and refs made laundry lists of penalized and ejected players.
And come Monday morning, these same cops will arrest New Yorkers for fighting.
