Thursday Night Football is, well, turning out exactly like Thursday Night Football last year. Alex Smith is dinking and dunking; Michael Vick is throwing interceptions. Fortunately, fans, and everyone half asleep in the press box, had a five-minute brawl in the upper decks to watch.
An epic 5 minute brawl just happened right in front of the press box. As I was saying, MOST #Eagles fans are normal.— Michael Tanier (@MikeTanier) September 20, 2013
Pretty good fight broke out in front of the press box, in the upper deck. Several guys involved. Better than the game at the moment.— Don Banks (@DonBanks) September 20, 2013
Visiting writers from Kansas City had apparently not heard about sporting events in Philadelphia beyond a few battery jokes.
There's a fight in the stands, and all the Chiefs writers seem surprised.— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) September 20, 2013
Brian Westbrook was involved ... well, a lady wearing his jersey was.
Some of biggest shots were landed by a girl in a Westbrook jersey. Also several guys got stomped. Sorry. No video or pics for those asking— John Gonzalez (@gonzoCSN) September 20, 2013
Best fight I've seen at a Philadelphia sports even for years ... and yes I covered the Flyers full-time last year.— Rob Parent (@ReluctantSE) September 20, 2013
An excellent fight has broken out in the stands. Security slow to arrive. I guess in South Philly they let the guys fight it out— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) September 20, 2013
Fear not, order eventually prevailed.
There was giant brawl in front of the press box at the game. Apparently 3 rows of fans have been ejected from the stadium.— Fightin For Philly (@FightinForPHI) September 20, 2013
