    Raw is The Soulless Lunatic - 10/29/2018

    Bald, pudgy Dean is that extremely dreaded uncle who would take up residence on your couch on Thanksgiving, and still be there come New Year's Day.

    I was amazed to see Steve Travis billed above Andre the Giant at that Brooklyn show. After looking him up, though, it's clear he deserved such prestige.

    2017-18 NHL SEASON: Period Three

    Hey, the Hawks did what the Blues have yet to do: win a championship representing St. Louis. I like how we have more Super Bowl wins, NBA championships, and American League pennants than Stanley Cup victories.

    2017-18 NHL SEASON: Period Three

    I think it was the year the Blues won the President's Trophy, then lost in the first round to the Sharks, that I realized the Blues would never win the Stanley Cup in my lifetime. Once that set in, I could learn to appreciate and enjoy the exciting ways they've found to shoot themselves in the foot each year. I'll always love the Blues and they'll never cease to entertain me, but I've got to be realistic here. A crippling final-week Blues defeat to the Blackhawks is just absurdly hilarious.

    Ah, there we go. Why wait for the playoffs for the Blues choke job we've come to expect?

    2017-18 NHL SEASON: Period Two

    No, see, that was a brilliant performance. If the Blues choke during the regular season, they'll get it out of the system by the time the playoffs roll around. Lulling the rest of the division into a false sense of security, then BAM! Postseason success and the Stanley Cup. That's Lex Luthor in Superman II levels of scheming there. Or they just keep blowing games now and miss the playoffs entirely. Either way, it's the Blues. Best not to get my hopes up past the first round.

    They should repackage all of the misfit and weirdo wrestlers as Kurt Angle's various children and assorted relatives. The Angle Family can be the new Addams Family. A wild-eyed Kurt could spend the whole of Raw making bizarre announcements while blowing up electric trains. Plus, The Great Khali would make a perfect Lurch.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
  12. It's precisely because both Dick and Sweetan were already plying their trade in St. Louis that Brody was renamed "King Kong" Brody here.

    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.
  14. 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.
