South Dakota Cage Fighting

Michael Wilson of the New York Times filed Alive and Thriving in the Midwest: Brawling in Cages today. The article is about cage fighting in Sioux Falls and the comeback the sport is making in the Midwest.

Fresh Glue recently featured some attention on a national stage for South Dakota and it's certified beef program. Governor Mike Rounds is fond of mentioning that news coverage (as he did at the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce breakfast yesterday) but I doubt he'll talk about the clip from the New York Times as often.

Thanks to Bernie at South Dakota Magazine for pointing out this article. The online presence of South Dakota Magazine, long a favorite read of mine, is actually a blog with accompanying RSS feeds. Contrary to the New York Times article, this publication IS good for image of the state.
