"Watch out where the Badgers go, and don't you eat that yellow snow!"

“Watch out where the Badgers go, and don’t you eat that yellow snow!”

Personally, I have seen less media hyperventilating over Ebola outbreaks and Hamas suicide bombings…

In an unprecedented act of violence against cheerleaders, dozens of unruly fans of the Wisconsin Badgers college football team were ejected by police for pelting the Badgers cheerleaders with snowballs. According to Saturday’s report from the New York Daily News, the Badgers cheerleaders were forced to leave the field and hide in a stadium tunnel after being pelted with snowballs thrown by their own fans, multiple news reporters on the scene said.

Apparently, the unusually heavy amount of snow was too much for some fans to resist, and dozens of college students started launching snowballs at each other, as well as Badgers cheerleaders and officials on the field.

“Wisconsin’s student section is apparently bored enough by the game that there’s a snowball fight breaking out over there,” Jesse Temple, a Wisconsin Badgers reporter, who gives analysis on football news and updates for ESPN, tweeted.

Just a short while after Temple sent out the above tweet, he followed it up with another tweet saying the fans had started directing their snowball fury at the Badgers cheerleaders and football staff.

“Holy smokes. Students look like they’re now aiming all their snowballs at the UW cheerleaders behind the end zone. What’s wrong with people?” Temple tweeted.

Temple also posted a short video of the chaotic scene and the footage shows Badgers cheerleaders leaving the field as fans continue to unleash their snowball fury upon them.

As reported by Sports Illustrated, Badgers fans began throwing snowballs at each other in the second quarter. A short while later, they started directing their onslaught at cheerleaders, who were then forced to exit the field. However, during the second half of the game, they returned but stood on Wisconsin’s sideline instead of behind the endzone.

The snowball fight upset campus police and forced University officials to take action.

  • Why you want to throw snowballs at that?

        As to this cutting-edge issue, I am on the side of the cheerleaders.

      Cause they are a bunch of assholes who need the crap kicked out of them.

    I think throwing snowballs at girls in the schoolyard was a sign of affection when I was in grade school.
    Hint: not this century.

    • Blacksmith

      Yeah but that was pretty much one on one, not en mass attacking these girls. Dipshits!

      • Clink9

        The cheerleaders should bring slingshots to the next game.

  • Dana Garcia

    Too much alcohol? It does amplify stupid.

    Why didn’t they throw them at the opposing team’s players? With careful timing they could have caused fumbles, interceptions and the like. Though maybe the girls were having an off day in the cheerleading department – it’s a tough job: one day they love you, the next they pelt you with snowballs.
