On Thursday, August 29, Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket takes over the Village Country Club with a ring, a copy of the Marquess of Queensbury Rules, and a slew of ever loyal P1s.

That's right folks, it's time for Fight Night '13, an event members of the Hardline call "The best thing the station does." Just in case you were still on the fence about going, we're giving you 10 reasons why your attendance is mandatory.

1. Corona Light is the head sponsor: Texas heat + cold beer + boxing = Awesome. This is the simplest math you will ever do.

2. Intern Mike: Last year Intern Mike was decimated in the ring, and well ... just watch this video.

3. Three-round fights: Listen, no one wants to see some amateur fighter die from heat exhaustion, swinging limp-armed in a 32-round Jack Johnson tribute. Three rounds gives the fighters time to feel each other out, break through their nerves, realize the whole thing is about to be over and swing wildly.

4. Brooklyn versus Texas: Local musician Jimmy Menkena hails from Brooklyn, yet chooses to live in the great state of Texas because, well, who wouldn't? This hasn't stopped the Hardline from billing his bout as Yankee versus Texan as he steps into the ring with one of Texas' chosen sons.

5. The Last Hurrah of the "Manicotti Hottie": For the third and final time, The Manicotti Hottie takes the ring in hopes of demolishing her competition ... make of this what you will.

Unless there is someone there to fight original ticket guy, Skip Bayless - it is a waste of time. Wouldnt mind seeing Dan and Bob rip each other apart - that old Rocko time slot just hasnt done too well. Outside of Norm and the Musers - lame radio!

@ScottsMerkin My feelings on the Fan are best kept to myself less I lose my temper and type things that shouldn't be typed.

@gavin.cleaver oof, I meant Gavin Spittle at the Fan, the guy who ran Richie off the air when his amigo decided to butcher what was left of his radio career

@ScottsMerkin I really shouldn't have an irrational hatred for a radio station, but I do. I think it stems from how insulting their whole product is to the intelligence of sports fans. I get that they cater to a certain market, but that market needs to stick to the Pro Football Talk comment boards where they belong.
