Bayonne vs. Jersey City: Part Deux

Announcer – Welcome back, folks. Boy are you missing a heck of a fight between Bayonne and Jersey–whoa! And another right hook by “The Brawler”…looks like JC better dance for his life ’cause Bayonne’s packing a wallop! But what’s this? Looks like both men are just holding in the ring. This match was originally scheduled for 9 rounds, but it looks as though both men are tired and there’s still no real winner. Let’s turn to longtime boxer, Rocky Montana, with his official scorecard tally…take it away…

Rocky – This was a battle that was in the making ever since these two towns were born. I’m telling ya that there is nothing like skin on skin to see who will win!

Announcer – That’s right, Rocky. Now, Rock, how are you judging this match?

Rocky – Well, it’s a hard thing to judge because both men are determined to win.

Announcer (interrupting) – Of course–

Rocky – I’d say that right now, I show the fight as 110 and 110 an even fight. Both men are exhibiting heart, skill, speed and raw drive. Anyone watching could see that everytime that JC throws a punch, it is quickly answered by Bayonne. But it’s no secret that both of these men are professionals and it’s looking–at least to me–to be a strong tie.

Announcer – Did you hear that folks? I can’t believe it! What started as a war of worlds, appears to have become a war of words! Let’s get a mike in the ring…

Bayonne – Brother, you don’t know how long I’ve held my tongue…

Jersey City – Can you give the people what they want? Huh?

Bayonne – What have you got to boast? Your nasty town is littered and filthy.

Jersey City – …And yours is full of white collar crime and political corruption…

Bayonne – That’s not what your momma told me last night.

Jersey City – Well at least my mom cleaned up after herself. That’s more than I can say for your mom…

Bayonne – Hey, oh! You don’t know her like dat…sorry, ma.

Jersey City – Did you hear him momma Bayonne? Your son finally admitted that he’s “sorry”. It’s about time.

Announcer – The referree has been speaking to the ringside judges and he’s getting ready to make an announcement…let’s listen…

Referree – Ladies and gentlemen, this fight is a DRAW!

*The crowd boos*

Announcer – Well, there you have it. The crowd is none too happy. It seems that this issue won’t be resolved today. Apparently both towns have shown that they can withstand the trial: they came, they saw, they both came out even-steven. Thanks for watching…Good Night.
