Last night in Alabama (of course) there was what can only be described as a massive brawl between, well, everyone inside the Alabama State University Acadome.
During the 5A Boys State Basketball playoff game between Montgomery's G.W. Carver High School and Valley High, a hard foul with 6:23 remaining in the 4th quarter ignited a free-for-all that involved players, people in the stands, kids, bears, and possibly a fire-breathing dragon. In other words, it got pretty nuts.
Carver-Montgomery was leading Valley 52-37 when play was stopped. But here's my favorite quote from the entire episode.
"This game has been forfeited because Valley doesn't have any players left to participate," said AHSAA Associative Exectuive Director Joe Evans.
Yes, that'll happen when your entire team starts taking swings at the opposing team.
According to reports, somewhere between 10 to 12 people were detained after the fight.
And here's one more picture for the road.
