I’ll see your Dance Party Friday, and I’ll pull its sweater over its head and beat the shit out of it!

Folks seemed to like last week’s Dance Party Friday, and I can’t blame them. But we’re going a different route this week. And I’m not even going to pretend that there’s any sort of connection between these two videos and the kind of stuff we typically cover here on QuizLaw, because there’s not. But whatever with that — these videos are just too much fun.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Hockey Fight Friday.
