Not to be outdone by the Greek fans who set the Athens derby on fire over the weekend, Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow supporters fought each other on Monday while riding escalators. Unlike the Greeks, they at least waited until they reached the metro after CSKA won the derby 2-1.
As the rival supporters rode the packed escalators, tensions rose and it turned into a vile and unbelievable scene as grown men climbed and jumped from escalator to escalator to fight each other between a mass of bystanders. There's a flying two-footed kung-fu kick at about 40 seconds that takes the whole thing to a surreal level. But the high-pitch screams right after that remind you that this was all too real.
I guess the news that we're all going to be nice after the Fabrice Muamba scare didn't reach Moscow.
