Senior Kim Musket, 22, holds a small remaining piece of the goal post as some fans use badly worn saws to cut through the post while onlookers hope to be next to claim their own piece. The group spent numerous minutes just to cut a ring off that no thicker than an inch, but to them was well worth it.
