  1. That's always the general feeling - until the idiot mouthing off goes through with it.
  2. I'm seriously annoyed with my mother. Short version: There was a funeral in NY yesterday that I couldn't make it to, so she promised to set up a zoom link so that my wife and I could be there in some form. I verify the time with her on Thursday, and we sit around for over an hour on yesterday waiting for a call, text, or email with it. I call her, I text her, I text my stepfather. Nothing. I give up and facetime my sister who tells me that it's already over and they're headed out to lunch now. She goes to hand Mom the phone and she just waves it off. She calls me three hours later and leaves a voicemail telling me that she found out on Wednesday that the link couldn't be set up and that my aunt had an idea to facetime with out of state relatives but that "didn't work" (despite my sister and I doing it just fine). No mention of the fact that I made a point of asking her the time the night before and her only giving me the time and negelcting to mention that there wasn't anything happening. It's just one more reminder of why I'm so much closer with my dad's side of the family.
  3. The other day I started the audible version of "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay. The first in his "Dexter" series, which was the basis for the Showtime TV show.
  4. I've been reading "Psycho" by Robert Bloch (yes, the same story as the movie) and really enjoying it. There's a lot more background given to Mary (not Marion) Crane, including an anecdote that Cassidy one offered her $100 (in 1959 money) to take off with him for the weekend, which at least partially explains why she chose to rip off the $40,000.
  5. From what I’ve seen from the 2/23 show (just finished the GHC Jr. Tag match) not a fucking thing.
  6. I'm thinking along the same lines. ROH can be where some of the roster members who need more seasoning, or those who are just lost in the shuffle right now, can go get some more experience with some new opponents, or just get a fresh start.
  7. My best friend thinks that it's gonna be Cody Rhodes running it, in basically the ultimate Brian Pillman esque 'work everybody' swerve. Cody legit leaves and takes a meeting with Vince, or Nick Khan, leading to the Miz teasing him being his partner. Then, it turns out that Cody is actually the guy in charge over at ROH. It also occurred to me that TK can sell All Out (or maybe All In now) as AEW Champ vs ROH Champ. And Cody can win the ROH Title to loophole his way into the match, and claim he's not going back on his word because he's not challenging for the AEW Title, he's defending the ROH Title.
  8. Between the booking alone and what was posted on twitter, regarding Mutoh, Fujita, Funaki, and others refusing to do various jobs, I almost want to watch this show, just because it sounds like such a train wreck.
  9. Thanks a lot everyone. I'm doing my best. I got through Thursday thanks to my work buddies, and I had to babysit my niece yesterday, so I've been keeping distracted. But, it started hitting me last night. An old memory just popped into my head and I was simultaneously laughing and crying. I'm about to head in to work for my PT gig, and I'm honestly afriad that it's going to hit me in the middle of my shift when we're slammed. In addtion I've also slept like absolute shit the last two nights, and I realized at about 6 PM last night that all I'd eaten for the entire day were two cups of coffee that morning. Just for the hell of it, I stepped on the scale. I typically walk around in the 240-250 range, and I'm trying to get down to 225. Apparently, grief agrees with my weight loss, I tipped the scales at 227!
  10. My Aunt, who I was very close with, passed away very unexpectedly on Wednesday at the ripe old age of 56. As you can imagine, we're all taking it really hard, although I'm not trying to pretend that it's impacting me the same way as it is her husband and children. For me, it hasn't really sunk in yet. I can honestly say I have a great support system, even being across the country. My wife and sister in law both are checking in with me, and my buddies at work made it their goal yesterday to keep me smiling and laughing as much as possible.
  11. My wife, who doesn't give two flying shits about football, was even getting into things as two games were winding down. My bro in law in a SF fan, and during the third quarter last night, we had to find out whether or not he was teaching our six month old niece any new colorful words (he was!).
  12. If Suh gets another shot at him, Stafford is getting dropped.
  13. George Kittle is admitted fan of Chicago Bears. Jimmy G. is from Arlington, IL. Robbie Gould is a Bears legend. Moral of the story is Chicago owns Rodgers.
  14. I started Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan earlier this week, which is the basis for the 2010 Bel Affleck film "The Town."
  15. I feel like letting it stand was the right call, if only because they realized they screwed up and decided to not penalize a team that hadn't done anything wrong. And, with now bad the Raiders defense was in the red zone, it's not exactly a longshot to think that if they replayed the down, that they couldn't have scored a first and/or TD anyway.
  16. The only explicit part I'm recalling is Aphrodite telling Hesphestos that there's a better chance of an orgy taking place between some of the gods/goddesses before she gets with him.
  17. Bears on fans on Twitter all day yesterday: Today is the day that Matt Nagy gets fired! Me: I highly doubt it, since Chicago has never fired a coach during the regular season. Bears fans: Today is the day, just wait! Matt Nagy: Yes I'll be coaching the last two games of the season.
  18. My wife and I finished the main story of "Immortals Fenyx Rising" last night. It's very challenging, but in the fun way that makes you really proud of yourself when you figure out the puzzle or what to do to get over that seemingly impossibly high wall to the next section of the game. It's not exactly child friendly with some of the dialogue. At one point you rescue Ares after he was turned into a chicken, and Aphrodite asks him if he has any chicken left, he says no, and she says "Some fantasies are best left unfulfilled"
  19. I got a t-shirt from my older daughter that says "I Just Want To Drink Beer And Pet My Dog" (completely accurate!), my younger daughter gave me a coffee mug with Pigpen on it, and my wife got me two storage boxes for my tons of loose wrestling DVDs that I have laying around, and two of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon books. No crazed political talk, but we did have a close one. My sister in law back in NY came down with covid, so she's kinda freaking out since she was around so many people, including her dying Grandmother. Her best friend was telling her "It's not a big deal, it's probably just a cold and you're overreacting." my wife and I were half expecting to hear that she thinks all the covid tests are rigged to come up positive too.
  20. 2021 had its ups and downs for me and my family, and here's to hoping that 2022 brings higher highs and lesser lows!
  21. My wife loves her work. We hit up a used bookstore in Texas a few months ago and she grabbed five or six of her books. Ironically enough, the night before she passed we had an extra audible credit to use, and after hemming and hawing about what to get, she chose an Anne Rice book.
  22. They play the injury ravanged Vikings on Thursday Night, don't bring in the priest for Last Rites just yet...
  23. Stafford should be used to it. He's been picked apart in Lambeau plenty of times.
  24. The crack potatoes were a big hit with the baby. Her mom would give her a little spoonful and when she wasn't ready with another one, the baby would start waving her hand and then look at her father like "Can we hurry this along?"
  25. How great of a city is Chicago? During the commerical breaks and lulls between matches, there were chants of "Fire Nagy!"
