By now you’ve heard that a 45-year-old fan died at last night’s Texans-Vikings game after falling off an escalator. That got us thinking about this preseason at Reliant Stadium and whether the fan falling off the escalator was an isolated incident or are the fans possibly out of control. A few searches later and we’re watching Texans fans fighting USC fans during a 49ers game on August 18.
This is a helluva melee and even includes a kid throwing punches.
Watch the guy wearing #80 very closely. He seems to be minding his business and is suddenly getting curb stomped by two homeboys and a little USC fan. We’ve seen plenty of Texans’ fan fight videos over the years (one-punch KO, fighting Cowboys’ fan, and even a Texans-Cowboys catfight) yet nothing compares to Little Barkley punching a grown man.
It’s not even a competition, this brawl wins the 2012 best preseason fan fight award. Congrats, Houston.
