  1. Face Turns

    It's definitely because of growing up in St. Louis watching Wrestling at the Chase, but I can never picture Brody as anything other than King Kong Brody, the rough-and-tumble babyface who loved the fans and went crazy only when he had to do so. Now Dick Murdoch, he was always pure evil. Comic evil, to be sure, but evil nonetheless.
  2. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    I also remember The Shadows on TV because of their intro: "from Parts Unknown, weight unknown." I thought it was great that they were so secretive about their identities, they refused to be weighed lest someone do the math and possibly figure out who they were.
  3. Stupid Crap Baseball Players Say or Do

    Rogers Hornsby did mellow later in life, but he was still very much disliked. When Bill Veeck fired him as St. Louis Browns manager in 1952, the Browns players gave Veeck a trophy to thank him.
  4. MLB OFFSEASON (2016-2017) THREAD

    Trump did claim he would own the New York team in a third major league back in the late 1980s. I'm actually a bit more intrigued about Pia Zadora's then-husband owning the proposed Los Angeles club. http://www.nytimes.com/1989/08/17/sports/trump-says-he-ll-own-team-in-new-league.html
  5. It's precisely because both Dick and Sweetan were already plying their trade in St. Louis that Brody was renamed "King Kong" Brody here.
  6. Raw is Thunderstruck

    He may not think much of Heath's kids, but at least Brock gives a shit about the censor's kids to keep food on their table for another week.
  7. Well, there is that, but also that version of the U.S. title was technically a Jim Crockett/WCW company title and not an actual NWA-sanctioned championship. But also, that's wrestling for you. For years, the NWA recognized Harley Race as a 7-time World champion, then an 8-time champion, and now he seems to be back at 7 title reigns.
  8. NHL 2016 - The Quest For The Cup

    I have no complaints. The Blues actually made it to the conference finals, so this was a wildly successful season in my book.
  9. NHL 2016 - The Quest For The Cup

    The thunderstorms knocked out my cable, so I listened to the third period on the radio, nervously pacing even though the Blues' lead was a big one. I'm pretty sure that's exactly what 10-year-old me did back in '86 when the Blues advanced to the Campbell Conference final.
  10. I thought that was some kind of angry, grotesque Betty Boop tattoo when I first saw it.
  11. In Memorium 2016

    The prolific voice-over artist Peter Thomas died yesterday at 91. He narrated Nova, Forensic Files, and Nature, among other shows. He also was heard in Paul Hardcastle's 1985 song "19."
  12. NHL 2016 - The Quest For The Cup

    The Blues beat the Blackhawks. What a strange feeling this is. I had Florida Evans ready and everything. Oh well, this whole "my team wins a series" thing is fun, too.
  13. Stupid Crap Baseball Players Say or Do

    Nah, she spelled "traitor" correctly in one of her other tweets. That's a dead giveaway she's a fan of a third club trying to start trouble between Cards and Cubs fans. She probably never even had a smooth Busch Beer or an easy-drinking Busch Light (thank you, Mike Shannon) in her life!
  14. MLB 2016 - APRIL

    Milt Pappas, who Bruce Froemming screwed out of a perfect game in 1972, died yesterday at 76.
