  1. Context for some of that imagery may have shifted since 2011.
  2. Man we're still so locked up in court with Marvel we didn't even notice that. That's our bad, bro.
  3. Just dropping in to say that when the Cardinals start getting these little bullshit wins that piss everyone off.....it's like I can feel the old magic coming back..... https://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=34613572 OH GOD IT's SO........THEM!!!!!
  4. I accidentally ran over his son once. But I think everything's cool.
  5. If they ever take Jeff Koons down, his account books could bring down the empire.
  6. I can't complain. The most expensive one of these is still about the same price a year that just NHL.TV used to be (which is also now included with ESPN+)
  7. But, srsly, can we interest you in Verizon Cloud so you can have access to all your files on the go? Free for the first month, you will be automatically enrolled forever in this incredible service if you don't not say "yes" but not "no" in the next 5 seconds.
  8. He's as active as The Boogeyman and Mark Henry's hand son.
  9. Whoa! Whoa! Let’s be reasonable. I hate the wrestling fan base too but they’re not as bad as Penn St. Students!!!!!!
  10. I was the same way when Tanya Roberts replaced Shelly Hack on Charlie’s Angels and that was just yesterday on Cozi tv.
  11. Vince’s story ending with him American Beauty-ing in the garage would be pretty great.
  12. except one of them is afraid of needles and one of them....is very much not.
  13. "You get the pussy now. And you get to stay in your house until you die."
  14. He's putting together a reel to shop around, it's made up of over 600 shots he produced and lasts 1.3 seconds.
  15. This is the sort of current pop culture reference that Vince built his empire on.
  16. "You got somethin' for me tonight, Terry? I know I'm the millionaire son of the company's owner, but I just...I just need to hear the pop one more time, boss."
  17. Apparently the brass ring has issued a statement about Vince:
  18. The greatest evil film has ever done is convincing an entire generation that Rodney Dangerfield's character in Caddyshack was a good guy.
  19. The conformist still fucks me up.
  20. Years from now we may look back at this promo as the last one in the history of "wrestling" as an independent industry that follows it's own carny logic/rules/laws.
  21. Okay. I'm super high right now so this may not make sense. But for those who understand business stuff: If this is just part of what becomes the downfall of Vince and the company ends up in the hands of who-knows, is it valid to look all the way back to 1999 and say "Well, I could have told you as soon as they went public that it was just a matter of time before the stock boys would find a way to take the whole thing away from him." Like I mean the idea that once a company becomes publically traded, it stops actually being "a company" and becomes simply "an asset." From that moment the WWE gradually inevitably became less of what Vince made ("a company that promotes wrestling") and more of what it's stock is ("a media brand asset that can be utilized in numerous ways to grow profit and stock price") And while Vince McMahon may have been a hell of a useful guy to have around in "a company that promotes wrestling" he's not so much of a value in "a media brand asset that can be utilized in numerous ways to grow profit and stock price." Like, is this just the inevitable and predictable consequence of submitting to the stock market for that big payoff? Or is that just an old man who hates "Wall Street types" looking to confirm that they destroy all who embrace them? (that's me. I'm the old porch man screaming about wall street.) Did I mention I was high?
