Applebee’s serves as neighborhood bar and battle ground for UT-OU knife fight

And, no, I’m not making this up.

Fans have been known to take things a bit too far sometimes, and this instance is no exception.

According to a Tulsa World story, an Oklahoma fan and a Texas fan got into an argument about — what else — college football while the two were in an Applebee’s restaurant in San Antonio. The police report states that the argument got heated and the Sooner pulled a knife on the the opposing fan and a struggle ensued.

However, it was the Oklahoma fan who left the restaurant in critical condition after suffering a stab wound from his own blade. The Texas fan also received a knife-inflicted wound, but he has been listed in stable condition.

Certainly, we hope both of these men are okay, but it goes to show that college football — or, really any sport — truly is not that important in our everyday lives.

    Just one more reason to never set foot in an Applebee’s…

    Football is important, Ben. If you keep it in perspective, it can be a nice distraction from the insanity in the world. But in this case, it sounds like crazy came to football.

    The guy must have brought his own blade ’cause the knives they give you at Applebee’s wouldn’t cut warm butter.

    In the future, could ESPN televise these events as part of their deal with UT — after all, doesn’t it call for some sort “alternative programming”…

    This has Longhorn Network written all over it !!! :)

    BTW, OU fan, if you’re going to pull a knife, at least know how to use it. How pathetic to be the one in critical condition from a wound sustained BY YOUR OWN KNIFE.

    Seriously, if you take your rooting interests in college sports that far, you really do need to “get a life”. What kind of an idiot take the “my team is better than your team” argument so far as to threaten another person’s LIFE? What goes through someone’s mind right before pulling out a knife and threatening someone… over football?

    Typical Okie getting stabbed with his own knife. You’ve seen then sign crossing the Red River haven’t you? Welcome to OK, increase our IQ.

    The Texas fan weighed in at 350 lbs while the Oklahoma fan only weighed in at 300 lbs…not a fair fight.

    Two thumbs up. One for the screen name, one because Olive Garden was the first thing that popped in my head when I read this.
