England and Russia Start World War III at Euro 2016


“Drunk football fans start fight” is a common headline across the pond but drunk football fans are stepping up their game in France for Euro 2016.

Security was increased ahead of the major soccer tournament that falls two years in between each World Cup.  The extra security measures were for terrorists, not drunks, but the drunks certainly need it.

Before Russia and England squared off in Marseilles, things turned violent.  Not “UK is going to the Final Four, let’s go to State Street” violent, this is bloody violence.


Their primary weapon is beer bottles.

That doesn’t mean they can’t use the chair.

Police responded with water cannons and tear gas to contain the crowd.

They responded to the water with fire.

It didn’t end when they got to the game.

The winner of the fight?  No one.  Russia forced a draw with a goal in the 92nd minute.

    Spent much of this glorious day getting sunburned watching future collegiate Baseballers. Best part of the day was the break at a sports bar when one of the guys called Soccer a Commie sport. My kid’s H.S. was #1 in the nation at 6A back in May. I said nada. But I understood.

    All that, and for a game that ended in a tie. Soccer is so incredibly lame.

    These soccer fans are just like Democrats at a Trump rally…

      This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. You must have an extremely low IQ.
