  1. Paul London. Sixty minute draw. Both men are carried out on dolphins into the nearby ocean and never seen again, presumed having joined the pod.

  2. Can't wait for the season to start next week. Hope The Giants don't look as bad in the season opener as they did in this final pre season game last night. *Checks notes* Fuck.

  6. Sounds like the "this win will need an asterisk by it" call is going to be this year's hottest trend among NFL commentators.

  7. Hopefully y'all don't mind but... DAK~! DAK~! DAK~! DAK~! Sorry, Rippa, but if the Giants were going to get demolished like that then might as well be DEAN's Cowboys. At least this time.

  10. This weekend is a real indictment on those 'NFL is worked' people. The two biggest week 1 prime time games are a 40 - 0 disgusting blow out and the other has the biggest star of the off season leave the game after 5 plays. Even tho that catch just now was amazing and the game is tied, how many people turned the game off when Rodgers went out? Not very smart "booking".

  11. Few things about the NFL annoy me more than the fact they are a multi multi billion dollar business and they still can't/won't implement fields that will cut down on injuries. Its a dangerous enough sport as it is, players shouldn't have to worry about their feet getting stuck in shitty turf and getting seriously injured on top of everything else that can happen to them. I know they are *trying* to use new technology to make it better but there to me is no excuse that they haven't figured it out yet.

  12. that field is garbage and has been inflicting serious leg injuries for years. Serves them right for refusing to spend on fixing it. What could be more Jets than Aaron Rodgers' tenure with the Jets lasting 5 plays?

  13. You had me at Helmet, L7, and Quicksand. I saw Helmet in 2005 when the lineup included Page Hamilton, Chris Traynor, John Tempesta, and Frank Bello. I saw L7 open for the Offspring in 1997. Also on the bill supporting their first album was AFI.

  14. Or maybe if we're lucky it'll be the Tony Romo model of coming in, being really good for a couple years but slowly getting beaten down into just another bog standard NFL color commentator.

  15. I never got to see a show at City Gardens. Trenton is over an hour from where I grew up. I did not have my driver’s license until late in high school (can’t get it in NJ until your are 17.) My parents were also fairly strict with me about curfews (understandably so.) I think my friends saw Shelter or someone I was not interested in. But as I also once joked: I never went to City Gardens because my parents loved me. I did go to a bunch of shows at The Wetlands. They had a bunch of bands outside of the Dead jam band stuff it was best known for. I know I saw a few ska shows (of course) and at least one Bouncing Souls show. But I did see maybe the best show of my life there: El Vez, The Mexican Elvis. The guy behind El Vez was in The Zeroes and a few other old punk bands. Then he became El Vez, which is sort of really hard to describe looking back. Or maybe not: Imagine if Elvis was Mexican-American, with his “parody” songs (In El Barrio) not really parody songs but more statements about Chicano pride and politics. Great stage show with his backup dancers The Elvettes and a lot of costume changes and fun. I saw him with a few weeks left before I went back to school and came close to just following the tour for the next week or two but my parents wanted to hang out some, and I am a mamma’s boy at heart. I saw El Vez a few years later at one of the most memorable weekends of my life. I worked at my school’s library and was good friends with this guy Joe. Joe was not a student (a few years older than me and I think chipping away at a class here and there) but still worked at the library. Joe was obsessed with El Vez but never saw him. We became friends over El Vez (I think I had his tour shirt) and probably half of our conversations were about him. El Vez finally came to Philly to play at the late, great Trocadero. (Sadly closed.) Joe was brimming with anticipation. We got to the show early and he got pretty inhebriated. (I drove and was also a lightweight.) Before the show starts, this girl standing near me catches my eye and we start talking. El Vez starts. And then 2 songs in — literally 10 minutes into the show — Joe freaks out and grabs me and says “I have to go catch a bus and get to Wildwood right now!” (Wildwood is an insane Jersey Shore town — making it even weirder was that the show was in late September.) Just so weird. I ended up driving the girl and her roommate to where they lived (they were freshman art students) and we made plans to hang out the next day. The girl calls me and asks what I am doing. I tell her that I am watching Mark McGuire try and break the home run record. She has no idea what that means. When I tell her, she says “Eww. Sports.” The date did not go well at all, to say the least. Nice girl but I learned a hard lesson about the delicate dance of being into weirdo stuff like El Vez while at my core being more of a bonehead than I would ever admit. Or: I did not want to learn more about her eco-focused art fanzine and she did. She did now want to hear about Survivor Series. The last time I saw Joe was a few years ago. First thing he brought up was his awesome the El Vez show we saw was. I reminded him of what happened — him freaking out and going to Wildwood. He did not believe me. Sadly, Joe passed away last year. Addiction got the best of him. Real good and funny and silly dude.

  16. My Collision I went to was a weird one. It was the weekend before All In, so they did Collision, and also taped ROH and Rampage since they had to do the next week's Collision with Dynamite on that coming Wednesday. We didn't get out until 1am. But, my son was also not leaving a second early, so it was fine.

  17. Guess we never got a Bret Hart vs Sgt. Slaughter matchup meanwhile random tweeter referring to Hamrick as Confederic Flair which would certainly be a ring name/gimmick Would the Confederate Four Horsemen be made up of Confederic Flair, Stonewall Anderson, Robert E. Tullee, O.L.E. Anderson managed by Jefferson “JJ” Dillon?

  22. 5th September 2021. Meant to post this last week for Bryan Danielson's two year anniversary. I turned the air blue in the early hours of the morning when Adam Cole came out at All Out 2021. It was the equivalent of a lump of coal as a Christmas present. Thankfully Danielson came out two minutes later.

  23. Here is a perfect symptom of what is wrong with AEW right now: One of the biggest reason ticket sales for Grand Slam are soft is because last year they decided to make it like one of those Jack Sabboth indy shows at the Elks Lodge that usually lasted longer than a test cricket match. The show ending at 1am left a very sour taste in people's mouths and I know lots of people who are going to pass on going this year because of that extremely negative experience. People in AEW have to know this so why hasn't Tony come out and told people that the show will end at around 11pm with half of Rampage taped at 7pm and the other half taped after Dynamite? They have really slipped badly when it comes to listening to their audience and giving them what they want.

  24. I have really enjoyed the trend in recent years of teams drafting a QB, getting mediocre play out of him his first year or two, and then going out and trading for a legit number one wide receiver and seeing if that, you know, helps. Bills got Josh Allen Stefon Diggs. Eagles adding AJ Brown to go with Devonta Smith for Hurts. Bears giving it a shot going out and getting DJ Moore for Fields. It's almost like the old "draft a QB and expect him to instantly elevate the entire team around him" method is flawed.

  25. Here are my thoughts from a fun night at Ring of Honor and AEW in Cleveland: "Tell us that story again, Grandpa Darby!" "One day, I was skateboarding to the ring, and I was attacked by a DINOSAUR~!" "Ooooohhhh....." Here's me talking to my daughter (age 20): (Dark Order shows up) "They're a happy cult." (Righteous shows up) "Are these guys another cult?" "Yeah, but they wear white." Speaking of cult leaders, "Keith Lee saying 'run' was a tribute to Swamp Guy." Her thoughts at the end of the night: "I'm not emotionally invested in pro wrestling, so I like the fact that the AEW matches aren't so long. The WWE matches just go on forever." My three biggest impressions of the night: 1. Cleveland is getting into AEW. For the last year's Dynamite, there were a lot of random wrestling shirts (Savage, Piper. DX). This year, there were a lot of AEW shirts, including guys who weren't scheduled to be there (Omega, MJF, Cole, Orange). 2. Collision (and AEW) will be just fine without Punk. It's cool in a way that Collision had one "star of the show" who is now gone, so everyone else can gun for that spot. Starks, Keith Lee, FTR came right out and said they want the spot. But think of the other candidates: Andrade (looked at a monitor), Swerve (wasn't even there), Jay White (getting over as an inanimate object). 3. Twenty years ago, I announced for Ring of Honor in community college gyms and county fairgrounds. Last night, I watched ROH in the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers. That really meant a lot to me. ROH didn't go away; it exists as part of the No. 2 promotion in the country. Being a part of its early days feels even better than it does for Bleacher Report.

  27. I saw GWAR a bunch of times. I was obsessed with them in high school. First time I saw them was when I was 18 or 19 at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. All of these dudes hopped over the railing and onto the stage and started attacking GWAR. Utter madness. My buddy knew some of the dudes involved in the attack — crust type kids from the Jersey Shore (which was an area where things always ended up just a bit further than they should have.) He asked why they fought GWAR. The answer will stay with me forerver: ”They’re trying to conquer earth.”

  31. Unfortunately, you know that even when if he were fired today, his replacement would just provide more of the same bad gimmick. Slurp the star quarterback, defend the idiot rulebook and the asshole official enforcing it, read the promo copy for the tie-in programming, tell a story from when you played, repeat ad nauseum (emphasis on nauseum) You hand over your soul as prerequisite for interviewing for the position.

  32. Rampage had some nice things, nodded off in the middle of it and apparently missed the women's trios match entirely. Big win for Penta. Collision was good stuff. Insane effort by Action Andretti, even though the crowd was against him. The ending was super nifty! Darby vs Strong was very good and it weaved several storylines into one. Samoa Joe with a big win and the finals being heel vs heel is interesting and should also advance a bunch of stories when it happens. Statlander vs Renegade Twin was ok, but Jade returning was the real story. These two need a real match at a big stage! FTR defends against you teams and Danielson promises an epic last year. This should be fun.

  38. Ultimately it’s about power and getting off on denigrating women. A phone sex line or he’ll, creating an account on Fetlife and finding a dom or sub or whatever in the area isn’t going to cut it. He, like a lot of others, is just a completely broken person. There’s no rehabilitation for that. Piece of shit.

  41. Seriously. Call a fucking sex line if you need to talk to a woman and masturbate that badly. He's certainly got the fucking money. The only possible way he didn't get his full ninety fucking five million dollars is if he did something incredibly stupid, and by God he found something incredibly stupid to do.

  45. Giving lucha credit: I learned lucha through LuchaBlog, posts on here from @Matt D, @John E. Dynamite, @odessasteps and on PWO through @ohtani's jacket and @elliottpwo (and lurking through the GWE threads, in general). Lucha is a weird thing where it doesn’t have the same type of hyping and learning resources as Puro. It’s very tough to get into as a novice. Without this place I would have likely only seen WCW and ECW specialty matches. And thank you to all I tagged. I talk with some of you off here, but a good deal of you and others do the lord’s work. Very appreciated!
