Filed under: ZportzBasketballDanceFunny

New Zealand's attempts to intimidate the US before their game didn\'t go according to plan!

In New Zealand it's become pretty common for most teams to do a pre-game Māori dance known as "haka" to strike fear into the hearts of their opponents, ESPECIALLY in rugby!

But unfortunately, it doesn't look like the intimidation factor really translates to basketball!!

New Zealand Rugby Team Does An Amazing Victory Celebration! Watch HERE!!!

Filed under: ZportzRugbyScary!

These guys sure know how to celebrate a victory!!

The Chiefs recently defended their title as the New Zealand kings of rugby after they defeated the Brumbies in the Super Rugby finals!

But instead of going with the champagne showers we're used to seeing, they decided to celebrate with a little Haka dance!!

For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Haka is a traditional dance done by the Maori tribes in New Zealand before they went into battle! Rugby teams started to do it before matches to intimidate their opponents, and it quickly became one of the coolest rituals in all of sports!

Don't believe us? Check out the awesomeness for yourself (above)!

Cops Pepper Spray Polynesian Dancers After High School Football Game

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFootballDance

Overreact much?

Police in the small Utah town of Roosevelt pepper sprayed a group of Polynesian men and boys performing a traditional Haka dance after a high school football game!

The dance group was in town to watch a relative play his final game with the home team, who lost and finished their season without a single win.

The Haka was reportedly performed to boost the morale as the team left the field, but cops were pissed because the dancers were blocking an exit.

When the dancers continued to perform despite orders from two officers to move away from the exit, the cops decided the next course of appropriate action was to punish them all with pepper spray!

This came AFTER spectators, coaches and players told police that everything was fine and the men could continue.

A bystander at the incident
