With 2012 nearing its end it’s time to look back. The 91st Minute has compiled several lists of the Best and Worst of 2012. Today, we’ll rehash a few of the worst brawls of 2012 – and there were many, unfortunately.

 

3. U13 Flying Kick Brawl: This confrontation broke the record for most flying kicks exchanged in a non-martial arts film. It’s bad enough that these Brazilian 13s are fighting, but what’s with all the kicking? Handball doesn’t exist in brawling!

 

2. Minnesota High School rumble: When two Minnesota high schools played for the right to reach the state tourney it all dissolved into a state of chaos.

 

1. One word: BEARCUP … never get involved.

The Dallas Sidekicks, a Major Indoor Soccer League franchise, recently retired the jersey of indoor great David Doyle. David starred for the team from 1991-2004, winning a pair of scoring titles while being named an All Star six times.

So he was a baller. And so is his son, Conor, a 21-year-old now playing professionally for Derby County in England. Conor surprised his pops with this special retirement message that may or may not have made me misty-eyed (on the inside, anyway).

Don’t be fooled by the way this video starts out: with a grown man trying to hold off a defender then falling down because of gravity and old age. This guy more than makes up for that with a nifty backheel flip that left everyone on the opposing side standing still – they turned stiffer than Burberry mannequins in the presence of Beckham’s son Romeo.

Well played, Brazilian Futsal guy. If you can manage to stay on your feet you just might have a future in this game.

Sorry about this. Arsenal turned Christmas Carols into random chants with instruments I don’t recognize.

On the bright side, they did offer a chance to win a PS3 Console so I guess that kind of makes up for it (oh … it doesn’t?). Well, uhh … Merry Christmas, everybody.

The above record is titled “Kaepernicking.” It’s dedicated to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and it GOES HARD.

I don’t know whose daughter this is, from the looks of things she may actually be raising herself, but either way I’m impressed. MC Gerber Baby is killing the game. She’s tatted up with the shoulder sleeve and has camera presence for days. Apparently, her government name is Sarah Redden and this isn’t the first hit record she’s put out. Check out her Wiz Khalifa cover after the jump.

Just so you know, people did play soccer back in 1924. This video is proof. It’s 33 seconds of the 1924 US Open Cup Final and it’s probably the oldest US Soccer footage you’re going to see short of actually traveling back in time (and if you did, would you really want to spend your time hanging out at this slow motion soccer match?)

The match features Fall River (Mass.) Marksmen vs. Vesper Buick (Mo.). It was uploaded on YouTube by user soccermavn who had this to say about it:

“Fall River Marksmen, champions of the American Soccer League, travelled to St. Louis to face Vesper Buick, champions of the St. Louis Soccer League. Before a crowd of 14,000 at High School Field, the Marksmen completed their “double” with a 4-2 win. … As near as I can tell, this footage is excised from a Movietone or Pathe newsreel from the era. Alas, the raw footage of the complete match is probably long gone.”

If you look closely at the footage at around the 25-second mark you can see a real live stegosaurus roaming the sideline. Must be one of the mascots.

Wow, I didn’t see this one coming. First, Will Smith’s son goes into acting and now this?

David Beckham’s son Romeo has kicked off what will surely be a successful career in modeling and life itself with this ad for Burberry. Is there a kid on the planet with a better life? His name is Romeo, for starters … and now he’s modeling highly expensive garments and getting paid for it.

On another note, are those real adults in the above ad? Seriously, I can’t tell …

Thick mustaches; nursery music, sparklers … this is like my perfect world. The only thing missing are kittens and ribs.

Don’t think too hard on this video – you’ll understand it the moment you stop trying to – just enjoy it. Happy holidays from us and the New York Red Bulls.

It wasn’t enough that the Duke women enjoyed a strong season that saw them reach the Elite 8, they had to go out with a bang. This will do.

The Blue Devils cover Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ in this eventful music video. It nearly rivals Taylor’s own after the jump.
