Lax team fights Foot Locker crew at TGI Fridays

Sunday night is alright for fighting. (Kare11.com)

There are certain times in the life of someone who works on the Internet when you wonder "Is this the greatest headline/story of all-time?" This is one of those times: a group of players for the Rochester Knighthawks, a professional lacrosse team, got in a fight with a group of Foot Locker employees. While both groups were dining at a TGI Fridays in Minneapolis.

According to the Associated Press, via amateur lax-bro Andrew Sharp at SB Nation, it all started because of a food fight. I know -- you think it's gotten as good as it can possibly get and then somehow it gets better.
One witness told police the lacrosse players were throwing food and other items at each other. One of the Knighthawk reportedly players threw a menu and hit a nearby Foot Locker employee who was sitting with other co-workers. Police say the Foot Locker employee who was hit confronted the lacrosse player and the fight started after that.
It's just ... so glorious. And not only because of the matchup or the ridiculous lax-y names of the pro laxers (Sid Smith, Tyler Burton, Cody Jamieson, Jordan Hall and Travis Hill). But because of the way the exchange plays out in my head and I laugh harder each time.

It involves the usage of the words "bro" and "brah" no less than 500 times, with various random laxicon terms like "fish," "buddy," and "head" being tossed around more frequently than the screaming jalapeno poppers that smacked the Foot Looker employee in the face.
