We know these guys are referred to as New York's finest, but this is NOT their finest moment!
This weekend, the NYPD and the FDNY got together at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for their annual charity hockey match!
Unfortunately what was SUPPOSED to be a friendly game turned ugly when the entire benches cleared for a fight that pretty much

Firefighters are on the scene at a building collapse in New York City.
A six-story building on 116th Street in East Harlem, between Madison and Park, has reportedly partially collapsed in a three-alarm fire.
Witnesses are reporting a large explosion that blew out the windows as the street became engulfed in smoke.
No official word yet on the cause of the fire, but we do know that the building housed a Spanish Christian Church and piano repair shop. Right now the FDNY is still working on putting out the blaze, with 168 members from 39 units responding.
So far only minor injuries reported; for now we pray that holds.

While the FDNY fight flames every day, that doesn't mean they can't be torn up about the death of a beloved talent like Harold Ramis.
Celebs friends have expressed their heartache, but the FDNY took it a step further at the Hook & Ladder 8 ” The Ghostbusters House" by hanging the Ghostbusters logo above their doors.
See?! They're just a bunch of softies!
It is pretty obvious that even though we've lost Dr. Egon Spengler, he will not be forgotten.

Sheryl Crow's young son Levi James Crow may not have been alive in 2001, but he will still learn a lesson from it if Mom has anything to do with it.
Sheryl is teaching her boys all about how to honor the heroes of that day.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the All I Wanna Do singer help Levi give her local FDNY firemen some high fives!
Sheryl must have explained to him what kind of heroes he was meeting, as the little guy obviously got quite a thrill from the experience!
And something tells us meeting the sexy singer just may have given the firefighters a thrill of their own!

Moxie, a search-and-rescue dog, worked 12-hour days at ground zero, on September 11th and through the following week.
She had been trained to find survivors… but she never found one.
She did play an important role, though. Keeping spirits up in a confusing and depressing time.
Mark Aliberti, Moxie’s handler, said:
"You couldn't walk through the site without people stopping to pet your dog. The F.D.N.Y. guys would want to hug your dog because they hadn't seen theirs for days. It keeps you motivated."
Moxie kept her handler grounded and on point when it would have been so easy to get overwhelmed.
