  1. Upshot is that Haskins had recreational drugs in his system and a bac of .24 when he died. Story going around is that he was partying all night with a woman and left the club (with the woman) after some sort of fight, then ran out of gas on the interstate and left the woman in the car while he went for gas.
  2. Tomorrow will hopefully not be interesting. One of my employees got himself fired earlier this week (not by me, though I wouldn't have minded being able to do it personally) and posted a threat on social media. Apparently he's claimed he's going to come in and shoot up the place (edit; tweet has since been deleted). General feeling is that it's an idiot mouthing off on social media and not a serious threat. Still, police and have been alerted and are looking for the guy and the company is assigning extra security to the office tomorrow. Since I'm in charge, I'm going to be the first one in the office and last one out. I told everyone to work from home tomorrow if they're at all uncomfortable. edit: dude was arrested this morning. No excitement tomorrow.
  3. Same. I’m not expecting a decisive outcome. Probably Roman interference that leads to a no contest.
  4. Stumbled across the Twitter feed of an ESPN employee who was live-tweeting Fisher’s press conference. Pretty entertaining. Jimbo wasn’t holding back. If I was a lot more naive and a lot less cynical, I’d completely believe A & M was an innocent victim in all this.
  5. From a booking standpoint, John Morrison makes sense as the joker. It seemed unlikely they’d want to job Joe out already, so I was wondering if they’d really bring in a big name and set him against Joe in their debut match. Morrison as the mystery opponent is still underwhelming to me. When I read that this morning, my first thought was “Welp, at least Savio Vega is off the hook.”
  6. That video is Dave at his Meltzer-iest. 12 minutes of talking in circles, only for him to wrap it up by saying something like “Well, I can’t really comment on the issue because I don’t really know what the issue is, so I can’t comment on it.”. Ugh. I want those twelve minutes back, Dave. Dave did remind me that I forgot to go through my YouTube follows when I purged pro wres from my social media. Thanks, Dave. Sorry I have to drop your channel. This incident feels like a shoot that will be turned into a work when all is said and done. It’ll be interesting to see if Roman feels like getting involved to throw Naomi a lifeline. Sasha could be out of luck, but Sasha went from being a main-eventer to being half of a “creative has nothing for you” tag team with Naomi. It feels like she was on her way out anyway. Kinda agree with the people speculating the “didn’t want to work with someone” thing is a cover story. Contract issues seem plausible. Meltzer speculated (?) Naomi and Sasha didn’t think Nikki and Doughdrop should be in the match and lobbied for them to be replaced.
  7. On the one hand, it feels like the right business decision. On the other hand, so what does Xbox have to show for this year? I feel like it's getting time for Xbox to finally make good on its promise to beef up its roster of exclusives. They've been making the same promises for 20 years and then spending a lot of time kicking the can down the road. No one expects them to compete with Sony or Nintendo overnight, but the "next year or the year after that or the year after that" promises are wearing me out. I still really dig my Series X but I've mostly been using it to play back-compatible X360 games lately. Sony and Ninendo are shaping up to have good years with first-party games. Xbox is still a question mark.
  8. lol, this ad popped up in my Twitter feed (that’s what they all say) and I laughed way too hard when I realized the guys looks like Adam Cole to me.
  9. Adam Silver probably needs to send our a memo reminding teams that the playoffs are still going on. Philadelphia and Golden State were apparently very surprised to learn that they had games this week.
  10. Meltzer is saying that Roman is not leaving WWE but did just sign a new contract that requires far fewer appearances. Basically, Roman has a Brock Lesnar-type deal and is going to stop working house shows.
  11. Update: Wife and sis-in-law have been on the trail for a week now and no one has been eaten yet. I'm considering that a win. Lol, actually, they're doing quite well and really enjoying it, which is odd 'cause it sounds like my idea of Hell Weather has been awful. Lots of rain, cold, mud, etc. Past two days have seen torrential downpours and strong winds that blow the rain sideways. They're somewhat behind schedule due largely to weather, but still covering 12-13 miles (!) a day. They're hoping a combination of lighter packs and better weather this week will allow them to get back on schedule. My wife is floating the idea that they could stay on the trail and extra day or two and still cover 230 miles but I dunno that the others want to do that. There's also the matter of whether provisions could be stretched any further, I'm extremely impressed and, more importantly, our kids are extremely into this and doing what the can to signal boost for Mom and Aunt K. The Appalachian Trail isn't an easy hike under ideal circumstances. Wife and I were hugely into endurance sports when we were younger, and still do the occasional big-city marathon, but this is a whole 'nother level. The logistics (weather. food, clean water, no showers or change of clothes, etc.) seem more challenging than the actual hiking.
  12. I'm usually (always) able to switch pages if I click on the topic title first, then navigate to the page I want. My habit used to be to enter the thread by clicking on the latest page. That never works. If I click on the title, then select a page once I'm in the thread, I can usually move forward or back. Hopes that helps.
  13. Watched a few minutes of wrestling last night for the first time in months. Unfortunately, it was the Hollywood Blondes-House of Black segment from dynamite. Glad to see that AEW brought in Brody King and Buddy Murphy, but the segment was terrible and Black’s hocus-pocus gimmick doesn’t do a lot for me. Lol, of all the segments to randomly tune in for….. I feel like I’m done with wrestling. I’ve been watching less and less of it since about 2010. It’s been years since I watched Japan, Mexico, or an indy without a national tv contract. It’s been over a decade since I went to a live show or bought a full show. At the moment. I feel like it will be after football season before I try out WWE or AEW again. Truthfully, I feel like I would have lost interest entirely back around 2010 or 2012 if I hadn’t been active here at the time. Anyway, if I quit posting here, that’s the explanation. Nothing mysterious. Doubt this is my last post but it’s not out of the question. I haven’t been reading topics like I used to.
  14. Wife and sister-in-law left this morning for Georgia. They're going to meet up with a couple of friends and spend two weeks hiking the Appalachian Trail. Hoping to cover about 230 miles in 14 days. I'm torn between being immensely proud of them and apprehensive because they seem to be underestimating the degree of difficulty. My wife has a background in endurance sports and did some multi-day hikes when she was younger and still living in Australia, but that a long while ago. My sister-in-law doesn't have any experience in this kind of thing. They're both capable, so It'll probably be fine, but I'll be relieved when this adventure is over. Found out yesterday that two of my daughters have made all their student loan payments even during the Covid payment freeze. Their reasoning is they knew what they were getting into when we signed the paperwork, so they're not in favor of pauses or amnesty programs. I raised good kiddos.
  15. Lol, if you hadn’t brought it up, that probably would have never occurred to me.
  16. I'm generally willing to suspend my disbelief and buy into ridiculous stuff for the sake of enjoying a wrestling angle, but I may have to draw the line at the idea that Big Cass of all people is MJF's secret weapon after Wardlow chewed Lance Archer up and spit him out. I mean, ok, I'll let you have your necrophiliac wrestling demons from hell and reincarnated snake gods who wrestle for... reasons. I'll even look the other way when dudes cave in each other's heads with sledgehammers and then get up to finish the match. But booking Cass as more of a monster than the Murderhawk Monster? Even I have standards once in while.
  17. The “oh my oh no” commentary cracked me up.
  18. I’d be much more interested in this discussion If it revolved around the combination strip club/tax preparation service mentioned a few pages back.
  19. There were multiple long gaps. First eight issues took 11 months to publish (3-month gap between 5 & 6), then scheduling went off the rails. 9, 10 & 11 all shipped 3-4 months after previous issue and 12 was released 10 months after 11. All in all, it took about 2 1/2 years to release all 12 issues. lol, Brian Bolland was ahead of his time.
  20. I have no idea why why Miz would gift Rey’s mask to Logan Paul when he could make his debut as Rey Mizsterio instead. I’d like this feud more if they weren’t shoehorning in tag-team partners.
  21. Maybe that was in the past and they’re in a better place now? Reading a couple tabloid headlines seldom makes anyone an expert on another person’s relationship.
  22. Thanks to everyone who's posted or reached out. We're doing as well as can be expected. My wife is saying this is the first time she's seen me cry. She's probably right. I'm not good at things like that. Really realizing how many people loved my father. We've heard from a parade of friends and acquaintances who thought highly of him. I'm meeting a lot of these people for the first time so it's giving me a perspective I wish I'd had while i was living. Most of the people I've called the past few days have taken the news hard. I didn't expect the mechanic who serviced his antique cars occasionally to break down on the phone. Part of me wonders if I/we (my siblings and I) appreciated our dad enough. He was a good guy who was almost always there for his kids and grandkids. He never really seemed to be around all the time when he was alive, so I'm shocked to realize it's been years - maybe even decades - since a week went by without me talking to my dad at least once or seeing him at a ballgame or having him drop off something for the kids.
