That was a great Sugar Bowl game Thursday night, wasn’t it? Well, you missed the real “fight” in the stands.

A video making the rounds today shows a female Alabama fan – was she drunk? – launching an attack on a male Oklahoma fan at the bowl game.

After another Bama fan pulled her off the Sooner fan, she wouldn’t let it go and launched a full-out assault on the guy, launching herself through the air and kicking her boots at his head.

Scary stuff, really.

Stupid stuff, really.

According to Bleacher Report, Michael Connolly, the alleged victim of the attack, tweeted that the woman is a mother of three who had her children at the game. (Hey mom, where’d you learn to fight like that?!)

Connolly, a University of Oklahoma junior, detailed the attack for Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard blog.

He said the incident happened toward the end of the third quarter.

Part of his explanation:

“She was also sitting with her two young daughters, who were little blonde girls. Her teenaged old son was sitting about five seats away from them.

“At the beginning of the game, they were kind of talking s**t. They did an ‘SEC’ chant right after the first touchdown of the game, and we all thought we were screwed at that point. So once we started winning, they shut their mouths and my crew of 6-10 people just started talking a lottttt of s**t, specifically me and my friend who you can see waving the towel in the background of the video ...

“Her 16-year-old son, who weighs about 120 pounds, told us to come up and fight him. We were like, “No, come down here.”

“That was when the woman came down and the video started. She was screaming at me, and sticking her tongue out at me so I asked, “Are you trying to make out with me?” And my friend was yelling ‘Kiss her! Kiss her!’

“That’s when she walked away, and then jumped me. When she kicked me, it left giant boot marks on my shirt ... she was kicked out of the game and her two daughters were crying.”

Kudos to everyone (except the crazed woman) for keeping their cool until security showed up.
