Some of you may have seen the viral video making the rounds on the internet featuring a ridiculous Cuban baseball brawl (involving, I kid you not, two bats). If you haven’t – or even if you have – check out this tidy wrap-up by good buddy Big League Stew, who compiles just what precipitated the entire thing and also embedded the clip.
If you’re like me, watching the clip quickly brings to mine this classic exchange in the movie “Anchorman”:
Ron Burgundy: Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean, that really got out of hand fast.
Champ Kind: It jumped up a notch.
Ron Burgundy: It did, didn’t it?
Brick Tamland: Yeah, I stabbed a man in the heart.
Ron Burgundy: I saw that. Brick killed a guy. … Did you throw a trident?
Brick Tamland: Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident.
Ron Burgundy (calmly): Brick, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you’re probably wanted for murder.
