Hockey and football brawls regularly go viral, but lacrosse bruts rarely grab our attention. This time though, a fight from National Lacrosse League match is spreading like wildfire.
The incident took place when the New England Black Wolves took on the Rochester Nighthawks at Mohegan Sun last Sunday. With the Black Wolves trailing 3-0, temperatures boiled when their enforcer Bill O’Brien had his ponytail pulled by Nighthawks’ Stephen Keogh.
It was both brave and stupid of Keogh to do that because he stands at just 5'10", while O’Brien is 6'4" and weighs 235 lbs. Naturally, O’Brien starts punching the hell out of poor Keogh’s face.
This combination of lacrosse, the ponytail and the one-sided punch-up has made the video above a must-watch for fight lovers. It already has close to half a million views on YouTube, and when you see it, you’ll know why.
