Meh.  I've punched a horse before.  It's not a good idea, but at least I know it from personal experience.  Those motherfarkers are solid.

Yeah I went with field hockey.

Any reason for a punch up I guess.

I guessed dressage.

Was alcohol a factor?

Without rtfa, I'm gonna guess darts.

Would've been my first guess after footy to be honest (if I hadn't already seen the story on the news here last week). There's been an increase in incidents of people getting drunk then starting fights at the races for a couple of years now.

Was even one at royal ascot a couple of years back, though not in the royal enclosure sadly. (The queen owns a substantial amount of race horses, but I don't think she goes much anymore)

Is it a requirement that all limey sports be named to sound like a Harry Potter-related sex crime?

It's England, so I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

Harry Potter draws from the same public school traditions that most of our sports do, so it's kinda inevitable.

So football is 'footy', Rubgy is sometimes 'Ruggers'.

Yeah, I see where you're coming from p...

And the toughest sport in all Westminster is the Whiffenpoof Brimbly. Three hamsters didn't survive and the Christmas pageant is indefinitely cancelled.

"Haydock Brawl" is the name of my Dropkick Murphys cover band.

I was guessing dressage so I was close.

Dermatologist_Tested: I guessed darts


I was convinced it was that one thing where they throw a wheel of cheese down a very steep hill and people chase after it

I would think anyone going to the infield of a horse race would know and cheerfully acknowledge they are a degenerate sot and act accordingly. This usually means giving others of a similar bent a wide latitude for normally undesirable behavior. I'm weird, you're weird, let's not get all shiatty about each other. A live and let live creedo if you will.

Oftentimes the types of people that accept they are social misfits are the the least likely to get really out of sorts about it and therefore seldom cause troubles.
