Woman records two alligators fighting during the Zurich Classic
Golf fans at the Zurich Classic on Sunday were treated to another “classic” form of entertainment: an all-out alligator brawl.
The two reptiles can be seen in the below video quickly chomping at one another in front of an amazed crowd and causing quite a lot of mischief.
Brawls of the reptilian kind can be few and far between in all major sports. Matter of fact, according to a recent poll, they rarely occur during any of the major American sporting events. Troubling statistics like these demonstrate a major problem in professional sports. Alligator fights are currently grossly under represented in modern half time entertainment.While the PGA is seemingly ahead of the curve, leagues like the NFL and NBA are far behind in terms of adding more alligator-related content into their programming.
So how to fix the problem? No easy answers come to mind. Currently, Golf is the only sport well-equipped to handle more alligators into their contest due to the many conveniences that golf courses offer for an alligators like ponds and warm weather. Other leagues struggle to offer similar amenities. The NBA, for example, has none of these aforementioned luxuries and many major markets are in cold weather cities, where alligators do not thrive. The NFL is even worse, as most stadiums are open to the elements, presenting dangerous working conditions for many alligator fighters.
Major sports are at a crossroads: either continue depriving fans of the alligator-related content that they deserve or find a way to incorporate them effectively into their games.
