I'm not a big Fight Night fan. I like to be on the same side as the P1 in most things, but this is one where I take a side tour into Weenieland.
Back in the days when I wrote short pieces, I wrote this (2009):
"Isn't The Ticket taking a big risk with stuff like this? I'm sure they make everyone use appropriate gloves and headgear, but isn't it inevitable that when you get amateurs of varying degrees of skill biffing it out with one another, someone is really going to get seriously hurt?
"Try to imagine what would happen to The Ticket if someone died as a result of a fight that it sponsored. It wouldn't kill the station, but that shadow would hang over the yucks and frathouse good times for months.
"I guess the good news is that Fight Night means that lawyers aren't running The Ticket."
And the broadcast itself too frequently devolves into simultaneous screaming, with everyone saying "OOOhhhh" when someone gets smacked a good one.
WAIT: Of course, I did write a longer Fight Night piece where my weenosity came to full flower. You can read it here: Longer Fight Night Piece
