  1. I just saw that Andy Gill from Gang Of Four died as well. I love this fucking song:
  2. The Pavilion at UCD is a fucking fantastic idea. Really nice venue and probably right in the wheelhouse size-wise for what they should be running for their first trip out here. Memorial Auditorium would be a nice shot as well, it's where NXT has run when they were here in the last 3 or 4 years. I think it has something like 3900 seats, but I'm not sure if that's the count for performing arts setups with a stage and seats, or when all the space on the floor is open for concerts or whatnot. There is also balcony seating, and it would look pretty cool and old-timey on TV, I bet. It was the area's long-time boxing venue until that scene moved into hotel ballrooms and the such. I saw Slayer there in 2007. Depending on when they were here, they could run at the Sacramento Republic FC outdoor venue at Cal Expo. I've never been, and I don't watch soccer, so I don't know how well it comes off acoustically on TV. It holds like 11,500 for soccer. I have no idea what the USL schedule is like, so maybe it would conflict with a soccer game. It too, is a venue that I saw Slayer in, this time in 2018 But you aren't too far off the mark that the Sacramento area has very limited options as far as the right sized venues are concerned. It's kind of Golden 1 or nothing.
  3. I hung up a Dark Order flyer in my office, and someone took a ticket.
  4. It's him. From his very own website: http://www.tomzenk.net/masked1.htm
  5. It's likely the reefer talking, but I'm getting caught up on this thread, and the timing of this has me fucking ROLLING. I am the world's worst person.
  6. I think every sport is real cool, but I don't actually give a fuck about any of them except baseball. I fully understand that he was a superstar, but having never watched really any of his work, I didn't quite get how big of an all-time player he was. I just looked at his career numbers, absolutely insane.
  7. That sock monkey is a hell of a doctor. One session and she's cured! I bet his rates are astronomical with that kind of success. It's probably really hard to make a living when your clients only need one appointment.
  8. I would argue that if racing games are in, and it appears they are, then Micro Machines should be considered for entry. For me, every bit as important to that "frantic" feeling in arcade racers as RC Pro Am / Rock n Roll Racing or Championship Sprint / Ivan Stewart's Off Road. And it can be a series entry or most of the games very easily stand on their own. I am a huge fan of all of the entries, but V3 for the PS1 holds a very special place in my heart for allowing me to use that stupid boomerang multitap and play 8 player, 4 controller multiplayer. Also, how in the fuck do we have this list of 64 and MVP 2005 isn't on it? Until my GameCube memory card got corrupted by the Wii Connect 24 overheating problem, I kept playing through the entire Dynasty mode, which ran for 120 seasons. What a fucking great baseball game. I'd probably go with Bases Loaded vs. RBI, but both of those games got pushed aside in my house for the official MLB NES game.
  9. I'm very strongly considering taking a break from Major League baseball, but I'd just fill in that hole with high school baseball and the summer wood bat league that has a a handful of teams near-ish to me, or Modesto or Stockton or Visalia in the California League. You can't get much better than low level baseball when it comes to fun factor and watching young guys really get started on a professional career. MLB (the league itself) has shown me time and time again that they have no interest in cleaning up the game in any meaningful way, be it about steroids or international signing or DV issues or cameras in CF to feed batters the pitch. All of these things make me think baseball sucks, and that is a hard thing to swallow for me, because of the really special feelings I have for the game. So I'll ditch the Bigs for a while and supplement my need for baseball with the lowest levels of the game. I have a little league team to coach coming up at the start of March, so I'll use that to keep my eyes on baseball. Fuck the Bigs for right now.
  10. Yo, fucking no one does. But I want to prove it.
  11. My partner at work is convinced that the gold strip is a buzzer. I think it's confetti, but if he is right, this photo is from the 2019 ALCS, proving that they kept on with it for 2 more years.
  12. Jessica Mendoza seems like a dumb person: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/jessica-mendoza-mets-adviser-calls-out-whistleblower-mike-fiers-as-carlos-beltrans-future-remains-unclear/ She should probably stick to collecting her paycheck from NYM and being the most tolerable part of a bad three person booth on Sunday night national games. Being disappointed in a guy for outing some straight up fuckery that tarnishes the integrity of the game seems like a bad take.
  13. I've only seen her a handful of times on SHIMMER tapes, but I am aware she is nowhere near as bad as Tamina. Tamina Snuka is always interesting to me, as I am totally blown away by the idea that you can have a job for more than ten years and never improve at it.
  14. If I was a wrestler and read this about myself, I'd quit taking bookings and start travelling to every dojo that would take me and start putting in WORK. That is one of the most savage insults I have read in a good long time. Kudos to you!!
  15. I kind of love this, and I think it would work really well in a place like HOODSLAM. There wouldn't be any heel / face nuance there, though. That gimmick is straight heel all the way in Oakland. They'd have to work out a deal to loan him out to some indy in North Dakota so he could have the Bret 1997 deal happening. Then the added layer of Benoit Junior. Fuck, I LOVE it! I would pay a million dollars to watch a crowd get uncomfortable when his name was announced.
  16. I can get the idea that this little tidbit is supposed to paint Hinch in a better light, but what the fuck did he think that was going to do? You work for an organization with countless millions of dollars at their disposal, and you thought breaking a TV was going to end this? Get the fuck out of here. Let's not forget that Brandon Taubman was placed on the ineligible list. So the only punishment close to what I thought was appropriate goes to the dude who was guilty of yelling at people. Cheat in the WS, not that big of a deal. I'm obviously minimizing what he was doing, but jesus fucking christ. I had hoped that they would pull out the Kenesaw Mountain Landis book of discipline, but alas, they did not. Coppolella caught a lifetime ban for the international signing stuff. Chris Correa went to federal prison for knowing that some dope in the HOU office would reuse a password. This batch of punishment seems ultra-fucking soft, and maybe that's because I know it came at the expense of my boys, but I'd be preaching from the same pulpit if it was LAD that got caught running video.
  17. I have a work acquaintance with an "Only I Can Judge God" tattoo. I think it's fucking hilarious.
  18. Maybe this shirt is Page's "F-Skull-C-K Fear, Drink Beer". That shirt fucking sucked too, and Austin was the king of the world.
  19. Jimmy Nelson to LAD. From the guy who covers MIL for MLB.com: $750k salary in 2020 with a 2021 club option for $2M with a $500k buyout. 2021 option converts to a $5M mutual option with 60 IP or 40 games pitched in 2020, and can increase up to $9M based on 2020 innings. Nelson can earn another $1.5M in 2020 performance bonuses based on innings pitched, and the deal also includes roster bonues: $1M if he’s on the 2020 Opening Day roster; $500k for 45 days on the active roster; $500k for 90 days on the active roster.
  20. You take all that time to find the perfect spot, then the trouble of setting it up, and it's always getting dark so it makes it that much tougher to do. Then some shitbird throws another guy right on top of you with an avalanche cutter. Camping is supposed to be relaxing, goddamnit!
  21. I met him and shook his hand. My mother worked for Unisource in the middle 80's, and he had some sort of business need with them, and she handled his order, or went on a sales call or something. I can't remember which. He asked if I wanted an autograph, and while the real answer is yes, I said no because I didn't want to be a bother, and I was fucking FUMING because while I understood the outlandishness of what he had done and even though at this point it had been 30ish years since he did it, he did against the goddamn Dodgers. And I wasn't having some fucking Yankee autograph sitting on my shelf. 10 year old me was hella dumb, yo. My Mom must have had something signed by him though. If she did, it wasn't in the box of her things I got after she died, so it is out in the ether somewhere. Pretty rad to be someone who has done something the only time it was ever done.
  22. I am so done with his Cero Miedo horseshit. Get out there and throw bombs, do the cool shit I am so aware of you being able to do and let's limit the taunt to a pre or post-match deal. He is on it like I am whenever I play Dan Hibiki. Fucking taunt taunt taunt. I could do without him peeling his glove like a banana to throw the taunt as well. Not only did I not hate it, I was actively on board for it. All the folks really up in arms about it being wrong in tone and with the wrong guys going over the big babys in the company seems like hyperbole. Not that they can't hate it, but a lot of shit in today's world seems like you have to be all the way in for something, or all the way against it. A lot of what I have read about people's thoughts on it seem like because it wasn't their cup of tea, they have to spew as much venom as they can at it instead of just being like, "Eh, wasn't for me, and I think they went the wrong way." My bolded part of your quote is the only real beef I had with it.
  23. While that may be true, although I'm not sure I agree completely, whatever merch they sell to the new fans in Korea will help to take some of the sting away if it doesn't work out. Also, whatever deal they struck to get all Jays games televised in South Korea probably offsets some of the cost of his deal. Obviously, the league gets their piece first, but some money for fuck's sure lands in the pockets of TOR.
  24. I didn't think this was quite dumb enough for the dumb stuff thread, but it's pretty goddamn dumb!! That being said, this is the kind of MLB arrest I can get behind. Trying to stop the cops from tossing your wife in the pokey seems like a pretty decent reason to get thrown in the clink. https://www.dodgersnation.com/dodgers-rich-hill-arrested-for-attempted-patriots-game-tailgating/2019/12/23/
