How many of you peeps camped out in front of Best Buy or Circuit City to purchase your brand new HDTV? I didn't. I couldn't give up my spot here in front of the Metreon where I'm third in line for the PS4.

Besides, I only had one thing I really needed, so I just sent my brother out to line up in the middle of the night for me. Actually, I don't think he lined up for it, but he got my item nevertheless.

It was Fight Club on DVD. And it was only $5! What a deal! Definitely worth the 14 hours in line. I've always liked this movie, but the last two times I've seen it, it was on tv in Spanish. And in case you don't know, there are some rules about Fight Club.

1st RULE: You do not talk about FIGHT CLUB.

2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about FIGHT CLUB.

3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out the fight is over.

4th RULE: Only two guys to a fight.

5th RULE: One fight at a time.

6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes.

7th RULE: Fights will go on as long as they have to.

8th RULE: If this is your first night at FIGHT CLUB, you HAVE to fight.

For the past few months, I've been trying to set up a Fight Club PPV event at church. We'll use it as a lesson about Jesus' blood being shed for you. Or we can teach about Cain and Abel and the first murder. We might have to modify a few of the rules, but I've got about 3 fights on the ticket so far.

It might be a while before it actually happens though because I'm having some problems with the insurance companies. Of course, I am always looking for anyone else who wishes to compete. And once lineups are confirmed, there will be betting lines set as well. Start training now. (If you need a training video, see the 'Hundred Dollar Baby' episode from season 2 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.)
