Any heated rivalry can spark a fight among fans at an arena, a stadium parking lot or a sports bar.

Only Kentucky-Louisville, however, can lead to fisticuffs at a dialysis clinic.

Five days before the Wildcats and Cardinals square off for the just fifth time in the NCAA tournament and the first time in the Final Four, a fist fight over who will win the game erupted between two dialysis patients at a clinic in Georgetown, Ky. WKYT-TV has the hilarious details of what started the scuffle:

"He just happened to think UofL would beat UK and he started to run his mouth," explained dialysis patient Ed Wilson. Wilson also happens to be a self-proclaimed die hard UK fan. "That's what started it."

But Charles Taylor, who was waiting to get hooked up to a machine saw things differently. "I didn't talk to him about the ball game; I was talking to another guy about the game," The UofL fan exclaimed. "He was meddling. And told me to shut up and gave me the finger!"

Neither man was arrested, nor did either bother to file charges. Wilson even apologized afterward, though he admitted to WKYT that he hoped Taylor "won't come [to the clinic] at the same time as me anymore."

So far this is easily the best Kentucky-Louisville rivalry story of Final Four week, but it's only Tuesday. Mix in Bourbon Street, late-closing New Orleans bars and thousands of fans from both teams, and I have high hopes we'll top this.
