VIDEO: Shoving match between mascots in Idaho nearly incites a brawl

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. You don’t spit in the wind. And apparently you don’t mess around with the caped mascot for the Rexburg (Idaho) Madison High Bobcats.

As Madison’s mascot spearheaded a rather raucous dance routine in the student section set to Moldovan group O-Zone’s “Dragostea Din Tei” — an absolutely ridiculous Romanian pop anthem — Pocatello (Idaho) Highland High’s Ram mascot playfully mocked this ritual.

The caped kid lightly shoved the Ram out of his way, the Ram shoved back and several Highland students stormed the court in retaliation, one of whom shoved the Ram to the ground, forcing a strong police presence to calm the crowd before a brawl broke out.

That last paragraph is basically one of the most ridiculous paragraphs ever written.

Thankfully, no animals were harmed in this experiment. Except for the Rams, I guess, who suffered a narrow 62-61 defeat at the hands of their Romanian pop song-loving rivals.
