Watch NYC's Cops and Firefighters in This Hockey Brawl (Video)

Call it a preview of what's to come starting Memorial Day Weekend.

We've all seen summer residents from the city tussling over that last heirloom tomato at Round Swamp Farm or yelling at each other over a parking spot outside of Waldbaum's. Maybe something about life in the city gets folks belligerent and spoiling for a fight. In any case, check out what happened when NYC's Finest went up against NYC's Bravest at their annual charity hockey game at Nassau Coliseum yesterday.

With the score tied at 3 in the second period, the FDNY and NYPD found themselves in a bench-clearing brawl. As Deadspin reports: "Cops and firefighters were beating the crap out of each other."

According to The New York Post the brawl led to a 25 minute delay during which some partisan fans could be heard chanting "PD sucks, PD sucks."

Nevertheless, the cops went on to win 8-5.

If those are the things you believe will happen, then they will... Why not try to create an atmosphere of harmony instead. Take a lesson from the two goalies in this video~ I'm agreeing with Juss on this; the article fosters bad feelings and is ill-advised.

I don't get the connection.....it was a disgrace for them to behave that way especially during a charity game......
