The Perfect Story, or Close

I love this story from the New York Times about a brawl at the New York Athletic Club. It has my favorite sport, guy fights, girl-guy fights, knockouts, an exclusive club, media brush-offs, reporters making people mad, men and women behaving badly and some funny comments. If you've ever thrown a racquet or a club or a punch, cussed someone out, wished you had done those things, or made an ass of yourself, read it. There's no Memphis connection at all, but I can imagine the scene transposed to our town.
