It Was A Long Traffic Light

As I was stopped at a traffic light in New Braunfels the other day, I looked out my window. The downtown area, especially around the town square, has seen a lot of old businesses renovated or recreated.

The Phoenix Saloon is one such business, known for their "killer" chili. I was admiring the glass storefront of the place and glancing at the writing along the front...something about food, spirits, music, badger fights*...

Badger fights? Who do the badgers fight? What if they don't want to fight? I mean, I know that badgers are not known for their social skills, but what if they've been to the badger equivalent of Dr. Phil to work on anger issues? Do badgers just fake it like in professional wrestling? What if...

The light changed as I got to that point. Thankfully.

*As far as I know, there are no actual badger fights currently happening at the Phoenix Saloon. However, there may have been such events occurring in the original establishment, which explains why there aren't very many, if any, badgers living in New Braunfels.


  1. I, for one, would pay to see a badger fight.

  2. I actually would like to see Tasmanian Devils fight, but I think they have to be married first.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
