RFT vs. Alive Magazine ... The Rigged Results of Last Night's Debate


Okay, so technically I lost last night's contest debating the merits of Riverfront Times vs. Alive Magazine.

But the way I see it, I won by forfeiture before the event even began. That's because while several Alive staff members were in attendance last night for Brennan's monthly Arguments and Grievances, none of them had the cojones to debate me. Instead, they arranged for the bar's owner, Kevin Brennan, to argue on the publication's behalf.

And you know what they say: The house always wins.

Video clips of the whole thing (very NSFW, or you should put on headphones) are after the jump. Thanks to Chad Compton for filming.
