Mexico and Uruguay would rather brawl than play basketball.

August 25, 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I’m not even sure where to start with this one. From what I’ve been able to gather from my 5+ years of Spanish classes is that the above video comes from an international basketball scrimmage game between Mexico and Uruguay. Okay so maybe it had nothing to do with my Spanish speaking abilities and more so on my ability to Google. Anyhoo, at some point during the game a verbal altercation occurs, which if international sporting events like soccer have taught us anything, it’s that things don’t end with verbal altercations.

So with that rule in mind the next progression in the altercation was some pushing, shoving, and throwing punches. Followed immediately by the Mexican players throwing things and wielding chairs. Seeing that coupled with an overexcited announcer and you get the feeling that you’re watching a Mexican pro wrestling match. All it really needed was someone doing a moonsault off the backboard and some interference by Hulk Hogan while the ref’s back was turned.

The best part of this basketbrawl? The two teams still have to play each other later this week in a real game. Something tells me that their game later this week will come with beefed up security that’s armed with rubber bullets and tear gas. I cannot wait.
