Fight Erupts at Belen Jesuit Water Polo Match (VIDEO)

Last time we checked, neither Belen Jesuit nor St. Thomas Aquinas sponsored WWE-style staged wrestling as a high school sport, so we really weren't expecting to see video go viral of their students getting into a Speedo-clad brawl.

Then again, apparently we underestimated how vicious a sport water polo can be.

According to the Miami Herald, St. Thomas Aquinas, one of Broward's fanciest Catholic private high schools, and Belen Jesuit, Miami's fanciest all-boys Jesuit private high school, met in the water polo state championship. St. Thomas came out ahead 13-10, and one of the Belen boys apparently didn't handle defeat well. So he pushed a St. Thomas player into the pool during the post-game handshake. Deadspin points out a bit of a brawl ensued.

That's some cold-ass shit right there. The Belen kid just straight knocks the St. Thomas kid into the pool and keeps walking like nothing happened. Though, later cooler head prevailed.

"After the ceremony, several Belen players came to the St. Thomas' side of the pool deck to apologize and congratulate their opponents," reports the Herald.

Jeez, that was the most private school sports fight ever.

Jeffrey Loria and his pint sized assistant David Samson used weak minded, maybe greedy, elected officials like Manny Diaz and Carlos Alvarez to get over $3 BILLION in tax dollars to build Loria a new stadium.

Manny "I love concrete" Diaz attended Belen.  Disgraced ex-mayor now.

The De La Cruz's are very honorable.  Perhaps too trusting?

This kind of stupidity reflects on all of us from Miami-Dade County. We are better than this.
