The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Plank Fight

Illustration for article titled The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Plank Fight

Sun Tzu probably had some quote about using the weapons you have available to you to defeat your opponent on the battlefield or whatever, and while I don’t know about any of that apocryphal bullshit, I can say with 100 percent certainty that these two ruddy English lads embody the spirit of resourcefulness. If you’re neighbor is enraging you with some fence-related funny business, what better projectile/melee weapon to take advantage of than a loose plank?

New highlights pop up every time I watch this video: the 11-second gap between the peacemaker trying to break things up and grabbing a plank of her own; the dog in the corner of the window; the absolute force with which the guy on the right tosses his plank at 0:34. You’ll probably enjoy the lightsaber-sounds version.

The person who posted the video added some information, though it’s not much to go on.

Newcastle seems like a wonderful place.
