This Footage of the Massive Brawl at Friday’s Red Wings-Lightning Game Is Bonkers

Let’s be real: There’s one major reason many people go to hockey games, and it’s the fights.

Watch the video above and tell us that giant men fighting each other with knives strapped to their feet on one of the hardest surfaces known to man isn’t what America is made of. Go on, we’ll wait.
