A lot of bros did bro things that turned violent after the Bears-Cowboys game.

UPDATE: It appears that maybe it was Bears that were fans stabbing other Bears fans. In the initial report (below), the thought was that Cowboys fans did the stabbing.  Either way, drunk people got into a fight over football and people got hurt.

-------------------

After the Chicago Bears got their rear ends handed to them on the field Thursday night, the competition spilled over to the streets as Bears and Cowboys fans began taunting each other, leaving two of the men stabbed multiple times.

According to the authorities, alcohol was unsurprisingly involved.

From the Chicago Tribune:

The fight started around 10:45 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of East 18th Street when four men began yelling "the Bears suck" at two men from Oak Lawn, according to a police report.

"The victims yelled back 'Cowboys suck,' " and someone from the group of Cowboys fans threw beer into the eyes of one of the Bears fans, the report said. The Cowboys fans then jumped on the Bears fans and cut them, the report said.

A 22-year-old man was stabbed in the back nine times with an unknown object and the other Bears fan, 21, suffered a puncture wound near his upper right shoulder, police said.

Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, when the 22-year-old man's condition was stabilized and the 21-year-old was in fair condition, police said.

This serves as a reminder to not act stupid or aggressive over something as meaningless as a game of football... something that doesn't even directly impact any of our lives.
