WATCH: A woman goes viral for nonchalantly enjoying a drink while a major brawl erupts around her at a hockey game between Seattle and Nashville.
Last weekend, the Kraken suffered a 4-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights in their first game in the NHL’s elite league.
They won their first game on the road, this time in Nashville, by the same score against the Predators at Bridgestone Arena.
However, what was a night to remember for many in the Emerald City over 2,500 miles away was a night to forget for some of those in attendance on Thursday night.
She’s still sipping her drink while a full-fledged battle takes place in her lap. @spittinchicletspic.twitter.com/Ac7weLELd6 Hockey fans come in all shapes and sizes. Tonight, I received a message from a source. I am unable to identify the individual in question. pic.twitter.com/OOLTZf8DcOA As the drama on the rink developed, there were violent conflicts between fans of both teams, who traded blows.
Two separate eyewitnesses uploaded videos, one of which has been seen nearly 800,000 times and shows a Kraken supporter assaulting a Predators jersey wearer.
This prompted Predators supporters to rally to his rescue, and one woman in particular attracted the eye of many for nonchalantly conversing with a buddy while continuing to drink her beverage while a scuffle erupted in her lap.
One conclusion was that “hockey enthusiasts are built differently.”
A number of the fight’s participants were questioned, according to TMZ Sports, but no arrests were made because neither party wanted to press charges.
How the hell is a Kraken fan fighting when they’ve barely played two games? You can’t be that worked up about a franchise with only two games under its belt.
“With only two games under their belts, how is a Kraken supporter supposed to fight? You can’t get so worked up about a franchise with only two games under its belt “While commenting online, someone on Twitter sneered.
Others, on the other hand, were more specific in their criticisms.
When you have nothing to do with the battle and come in throwing cheap shots, it’s really easy “With the surgical strikes, he’s wearing a Corona shirt. With a couple of dingers to the dude’s head, I came to a rapid conclusion “It was underlined.
“It’s quite easy when you have nothing to do with the battle and show up throwing cheap shots,” someone replied.
About 5 separate people fired rounds at the guy in the white jersey. Some legitimate shots were fired, and the fight continued. “Dude in the hite Jersey took gunfire from around five different persons,” said the winner, WHITE JERSEY. “Some legitimate shots were fired, and the conflict continued. WHITE JERSEY IS THE WINNER!!!!! “remarked a third person.
