    Agree that fights were around yard football, baseball, or basketball games probably a very high percentage of time.  Too easy to get carried away.
    Because I was safe, MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!
    Haha.  In basketball games it was always about foul calls/non calls.  Those could get ugly....
    We played strictly blacktop. Fouling was not a thing unless you decked somebody or flagrantly grabbed them or shoved them to the ground.

    So when I made the freshman team in high school is when I finally learned that I was not technically a very good baller despite having ruled the blacktop for a good five years prior.

    I did not try out for JV next season. That shit was too strict and frankly boring vs. the blacktop.

    Funny thing is that I did get recruited to play for my college's freshman basketball team because my college's athletics department (save for baseball and soccer; you know, white kid stuff) was awful.

    We did play blacktop in the summer.  It was brutal and because most of us played organized ball together we tried to call fouls.  It was dumb.  Nobody wants to admit to fouls and everybody wants to claim they were fouled.  When you didnt get the call then you escalated until at some point someone was wiped out/bloodied/and came back swinging.

    We sucked as basketball players but we were more real about fighting than most of the actual NBA guys.  We actually did have a proper punch up.  (In fairness, we were pretty small.  6 and 7 foot men should not be hitting other people.  Very different from skinny 14 year olds trading punches with other 12-18 year old kids.)
