Most bar fights should, by rights, involve women and their jealous boyfriends, or the old "Tastes great/Less filling" debate. Of course, tension between bar patrons is often brought on by sports rivalries, and at J's Cocktail Lounge in Fullerton, this was no exception.

A fight more contentious than baseball's annual "Freeway Series" at the bar last night ended in a stabbing, after the two lugheads "got into an argument when the Angels fan made a comment about having to share the restroom with the Dodgers fan," explains the OC Register. "The Dodgers fan responded by making a profane comment about the Angels and the two began fighting. The fight spilled into the bar where the Dodgers fan pulled out a folding pocket knife and slashed the Angels fan behind the neck, on the ear and wrist."

The knife-sporting Dodgers enthusiast ran off the premises and is still missing. He was last seen wearing--what else?--a blue Dodgers jacket.
