Twice a year, members of the New York media play members of the Boston media in baseball. This is surely amusing to watch — fat guys fielding grounders is always a reliable source of comedy — but yesterday, at Fenway Park, there was a truly beautiful happening: They almost had a bench-clearing brawl.
