Sometimes in sports, things could get a little physical.
And in the case of these two incidents, really really physical.
First is Game 1 of the NHL Western Conference Finals between the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues.
Joe Thornton of the Sharks and David Backes of the Blues settled an argumant like any manly hockey player would, and that is by pulling each others' beard.
And then on to a more violent altercation, in a regular season rematch of the 2015 MLB American League Division series, things got a little physical between Toronto's Jose Bautista and Texas' Rougned Odor.
The bench-clearing brawl was escalated after Odor landed a punch right in Bautista's chin.
Odor didn't like Bautista's hard late slide.
Bautista and Blue Jays thirf baseman Josh Donaldson were ejected while Odor and bench coach Steve Buechele were tossed from the Rangers' camp.
The rivalry between Toronto and Texas has been going on since last season especially after Bautista did the now infamous bat flip following his game 5-winning homerun in the ALDS.
Keep your cool fellas.
