The best (or worst!) St. Patrick’s Day fights [VIDEO]

Katie Callahan Contributor

As a child, St. Patrick’s Day was all about leprechauns, shamrocks and pots of gold. As a teenager, it was all about the green clothing and not getting pinched. As an adult?

Well, adults get the better end of the deal with parades, drinking and food aplenty. And sometimes the occasional drunken fist fight.

Here are some of the best videos of St. Patrick’s Day fights of recent years.

No. 10: Let’s start with a video that takes a while to get going. Skip to 1:26 for the first altercation, and watch the magic happen from there.

Watch:

No. 9: It looks like these two guys at Indiana University of Pennsylvania got busted for not wearing green, got psyched up for a fight, and then — spoiler! — the po-po showed up. And isn’t it a little early to begin celebrating this year’s St. Patty’s Day? You decide.

Watch:

No. 8: This looks more like a slight than an actual fight. A tiff among Boston gentlemen, maybe. Who knows? They just walk away with their possies. So lame.

Watch:

No. 7: Now, in all honesty, this fight doesn’t seem fair, because these chicks can hit.

Watch:

No. 6: Typical college brawl over an ex. The comments during the fight might be better than the fight itself.

Watch:



No. 5: These guys go at each other for the first part of the video, but the problem not addressed? These fights shut down some of the bars. Major party foul!

Watch:

No. 4: Imagine driving into a gas station, and this is what you see: some guys and gals beating each other up while the cops watch. Skip to 1:10 to avoid all the technicalities.

Watch:

No. 3: The incentive to fight is definitely lessened when people don’t wear as much clothing … or at least, that’s what you’d think.

Watch:

No. 2: At 0:22, watch a woman get dropped like a bad habit. All hell breaks loose from there.

Watch:

No. 1: And finally, this guy just wanted a cheeseburger and fries, but ends up in a pretzel on the floor of a fast-food restaurant. If you want to skip all the conversation and get directly to the action, start at 1:52.
