Saturday night fights ...

So I heard it on the grapevine that there is a "fight club" in Raleigh. Which is, in itself pretty damn lame. I mean nothing says "bunch of losers" like some unimaginiative dipshits who feel the need to imitate a work of fiction in an effort to find some sort of meaning in their lives ... or whatever the hell they think they are going to get, besides the shit beaten out of them.

But the really, really damn lame thing about it is that not only is there a $5 cover charge, but people are advised to wear a poncho if they don't want to "get splatter all over their clothes." So we've got people going to an event in which the object is to get the crap beaten out of yourself, but they don't want to get their clothes dirty? What the hell is up with that? And who is collecting all these $5 covers if the event takes place underneath a bridge (the Boylan Ave. railroad overpass)? Or maybe this fight club has corporate sponsorship from Norfolk Southern ... hmm, maybe they can get Budweiser to provide logo ponchos ...

BTW, if you want to be lame, it's at 3 am Saturday, but I don't know if that really means 3 am Saturday (meaning the 3 am that comes after Friday night), or if it should really say 3 am Sunday (being the 3 am that follows a Saturday night, which according to Elton John, is alright for fighting ...)

Good one! But really, my "source" broke the rules ... Not being a mamber, I am free not only to talk about it, bit to ridicule it freely.

the boylan ave bridge? no way! i used to live right there. oh, i can just imagine what that must sound like to the neighbors.

they really did pick a nice, gritty location. the max security prison is right there, and a cement plant... great atmosphere.

as for the splatter, you know it's just not a good idea to have strangers' bodily fluids flying at you while you have your mouth open to cheer them on, or at your open cuts from fighting. now that would be a really stupid way to get HIV or hepatitis or something.

If you go to a night club and don't pay the door price (for example $5) you get beaten up.

So what I want to know is: if you fail to pay the entrance fee at fight club, what are they going to do to you?
