Once again this week someone made the argument that fighting does not belong in hockey. I wanted to punch him.
I love hockey fights. In fact, I like hockey fights so much I’d like to see fighting spread to other sports.
Except boxing. Boxing should have no fighting. It would ruin the integrity.
NASCAR is nearly there. A while back we had a pretty good dust up in the pits. We all remember seeing video from years ago of Cale Yarbrough beating down all the Allison family. It wouldn’t take much for that sort of thing to make stock car fights a regular Sunday feature.
Golf would benefit greatly by having a beat down every once in a while. Make it a nationality situation. Tiger Woods would be on the cover of GQ again if he’d knock someone into a sand trap every once in a while.
The X Games? Are you kidding me?! Just like the originals, this group of hippies is getting older and bitchier. One guy is really rich. Two or three others are wealthy. Everybody else is eating rice cakes. The half pipe is a tinder box. I say drop the gloves.
Every second or third HGH cycle, we get what play by play announcers like to refer to as a “brawl” in baseball. This is where a batter and pitcher meet each other between the mound and the plate and square dance as the other boys gather on the playground, hug one another and shout “Fight! Fight!” until the Principal arrives to break it up.
I’m a huge baseball fan and for years have proposed a new rule: If a batter charges a pitcher, or vice-versa, they have to have a fight.
