It's crazy enough to make me think I was being spoofed... but a reader's tip proves to be true. Apparently Easter festivities at the Brookings Swiftel Center include an Easter Egg hunt Saturday morning, followed by cage fighting in the evening:
Yes, do, please "Bring the whole family to witness" twelve "kid friendly" matches, one for each disciple. Crack your eggs for lunch, then come watch these gladiators crack skulls, just like back in Roman times.
And for extra special family time together, you and your kids can all cheer for your favorite Fury Fights heroes (because Easter is all about fury) and get into the Easter spirit by shouting "Crucify him!"
Brookings city councilman John Kubal saw an ad like this in the Brookings Register (for which he works) and said No way! He got his fellow councilors to vote 6-to-1 to put discussion of banning cage fighting at all public facilities, including the Swiftel Center, on a future council agenda. Only councilwoman Jael Thorpe voted no, saying the issue has been discussed enough.
