Skinhead Breaks Geraldo Riveras Nose Before brawls were regular happenings on TV talk show sets, a famous scuffle broke out on Geraldo in 1988. (What do you expect when you have a show about skinheads and their ideological enemies?) The result: one broken nose for host Geraldo Rivera! If it hadn't already begun, the era of sleazy talk shows was now underway. (Loathsome as this incident was, I must admit I experienced a bit of schadenfreude when this donnybrook happened!)

Before Britney No one is surprised that photographers are always there to document Britney's every move, but I wonder how this 1942 photo of Frances Farmer came to be. Did cops tip off the press in advance? Initially, Farmer was arrested by Santa Monica police for drunk driving. She got into a heated exchange with a cop before being dragged off to jail. By the time she was re-arrested for violation of parole, Farmer had dislocated a hairdresser's jaw, got into a late night bar brawl, and streaked topless through Sunset Strip. She signed "C@#ks*&ker" as her occupation at the Hollywood police station. there is nothing new in the world...

Boxer Ron Lyle 1941-2011 Former heavyweight contender Ron Lyle died on November 26, 2011 as a result of complications from stomach surgery. He was 70. Lyle spent more than seven years in a Colorado prison for his part in a 1961 gang murder. He took up boxing while incarcerated. Lyle, paroled in 1969, did not have his first pro fight until 1971 when he was 30. He compiled an excellent 43-7-1 professional record, but his two most famous fights were losses. Lyle was stopped by Muhammad Ali in a May 16, 1975 world title fight in Las Vegas. Lyle was leading on the judges' scorecards when the fight was stopped, somewhat controversially by the standards of the day, in the 11th round. On January 24, 1976, Lyle engaged in a memorable crossroads fight versus George Foreman, also in Las Vegas. It was a wild, nationally televised brawl that featured both men in trouble several times. Each man was knocked down twice. Foreman eventually prevailed by a fifth-round knockout. Boxing historian Bert Sugar claimed it was "the most two-sided fight" he had hever seen.

Boston Bruins vs NY Rangers Fans - 1979 The NHL in the 1970s could often be wild. This was epitomized as the decade neared its end on Sunday, December 23, 1979. On that date the visiting Boston Bruins angrily invaded the stands at Madison Square Garden to administer frontier-style justice on a few New York Rangers fans who had taken some liberties. (It's hard to see the exact cause of the fracas in this video, but this is what happened: A fan, 30-year-old John Kaptain, reached over the glass and belted Boston's Stan Jonathan across the face with a rolled-up program and drew blood. Kaptain then grabbed Jonathan's stick. After that...mayhem ensued!) Among the most enraged Bruins was the normally peaceable Peter McNab. Feisty Terry O'Reilly, not surprisingly, was the most zealous participant. The enduring image, however, is Mike Milbury ripping a shoe from Kaptain's foot and beating him with it! Milbury eventually threw Kaptain's shoe onto the ice. O'Reilly and Milbury would both later coach the Bruins. Kaptain, who attended the game with his brother James and his father Manny, had to make his way home from Madison Square Garden minus one shoe. Some 300 Ranger fans attacked the Bruins' bus outside the arena. Because of this crazy incident, the NHL mandated the height of the protective glass surrounding all teams' ice surfaces be dramatically increased. John Kaptain died in 1999.

Gene Fullmer 1931-2015 One of the familiar names from the golden age of boxing, Gene Fullmer, passed away on April 27, 2015 at the age of 83. He defeated Sugar Ray Robinson for the the world middleweight title in January 1957 before losing the championship back to Robinson in May. Fullmer held at least a portion of the middleweight crown again from 1959 to 1963. Known for his rugged, brawling style, Fullmer was very much a hero in his home state of Utah. A youth center is named after him. His pro record was 55-6-3 with 24 knockouts.

Foreman-Lyle Fight 1976 Many boxing fans consider the 1976 heavyweight fight between George Foreman and Ron Lyle as the most exciting boxing match ever shown on television. I've been following boxing for more than 40 years and it's hard to think of a wilder bout! This was a crossroads fight for both men. Foreman hadn't fought since losing the world heavyweight title to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in October 1974. Lyle had lost to Ali in May 1975. A loss would be a major setback to either man's quest to get another crack at Ali. The fight lasted five rounds, but this video condenses the topsy-turvy events to about six minutes. Howard Cosell and Ken Norton describe the brawl.

The Quiet Man - Fight Scene There's nothing better than a good punch-up! The recent death of actress Maureen O'Hara prompted me to revisit the film The Quiet Man. The climax of the 1952 John Ford classic is the brawl between Sean Thornton (John Wayne) and Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen). Here is more than nine minutes of the famous and comical donnybrook!
