If you are like me, brawls are one of your favorite things about sports. Especially when they come at the most unexpected times.

Sometimes, the average grind of a sports game can be a bit monotonous, and there's nothing like a hay-maker here and there to get us interested again. Plus, it's always fun to see which athletes are the true warriors who won't back away from a punk threatening to throw a punch and which athletes are, well, the punks.

Generally, something really, really funny or something really, really embarrassing. Here are some of them.
