In somehow-fitting turn of events, Batman and The Riddler dropped the gloves in a hockey game Saturday night celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader.
As we reported last month, East Coast Hockey League teams the Toledo Walleye and the Evansville (Indiana) IceMen donned Batman and Riddler jerseys, respectively, for a "Heroes Night" celebration. Afterward the jerseys were to be auctioned off afterward, with proceeds going to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, March of Dimes and the Walleye Wishing Well.
As you can see from the video below, things got a little heated in the third period as Cody Lampl of the Walleye and Kevin Harvey of the IceMen briefly grappled comic book-style, to the delight of the crowd.
The Walleye won 6-2, which probably goes to show you should never bet against Batman.
