There's a dirty little secret in the lovely state of CT. This year I've noticed a lot of the young guys on campus have been walking around with bruised and battered faces. I assumed they were the results of bar brawls or a rough game of football.
A fellow student filled me in on the somewhat shocking truth. Young guys in CT are participating in "Fight Clubs" to earn some extra cash, and get in touch with their inner caveman.
According to my source, fights are held in out of the way places, because these bouts are illegal. The gloves and face protection are minimal at best and the action is really intense. It's all very "Ultimate Fighting" style of brawling.
Looks like the pendulum is swinging and the Machoman is replacing the Metrosexual. I'm figuring the situation will get full coverage in the news once one of these boys dies from his injuries. But, for now, no one talks about fight club.
