  4. The Japanese gov't seems pretty confident that they are going to get everyone inoculated early next year. My wife is a Hospital nurse so as a family member of "essential personnel" I might even be in the first few waves of people being vaccinated. I'm hoping that optimism turns out to be justified. I'm looking forward to not worrying about it any more. To regular dinners out with my wife and daughters. To going drinking with my friends. To going to live wrestling shows, and yelling and screaming until my throat is raw. To walking around in Osaka or Kyoto or Nara before or after work, and seeing what I can find. Going to movies. Buffets and beer gardens. Trying out a new izakaya or restaurant or taking a look inside a shop I haven't been in before. To working out without a damned mask on. To not getting mad because someone else in the gym isn't wearing a mask, or isn't wearing it over their mouth and nose. To going anywhere that isn't work, the gym, the supermarket, or the convenience store. To going to work, the gym, the supermarket, and the convenience store without any anxiety. I hope I'll really appreciate all of those things for a good long time, that I won't just take them for granted after a few weeks.

  5. Wow. Well, now there's no excuse. BOB took over playcalling duties and ... the playcalling still sucked. Time to fire the Offensive Coordinator, the Head Coach and the GM. Oh wait, it's all the same motherfucker. Fire Bill O'Brien. Fire him into the sun.

  8. It's so dumb. There is no one to cheer for in this mess. FTR doesn't give a shit about Tony or they'd do something about it rather than standing there. They aren't the babyfaces. Imagine someone attacking Gordon Sollie during an interview and Dusty just standing there. It wouldn't happen. The Bucks (or the one that was there) don't give a fuck about FTR because they'd attack them rather than the random announcers for no purpose. If they actually wanted the belts they'd go after FTR. If they were actually upset they'd go after Page since he was the one who cost them a match that spurred this turn. Instead they are going after employees of the company they help run and probably helped hire for ... reasons. Page has been hurt immensly by this angle by turning from a badass drunk to a sad drunk who turned on his friends (The Young Bucks who he didn't like anyway), got turned on by the people he was trying to be friends with (FTR) and is still being a sad drunk now. Omega is turning heel for I don't know why and did it over commentary instead of having any sort of actual heel moment in the ring accept being aggressive against people no one cares about like the lower members of the Dark Order or Marko Stunt. Don't get me wrong, they've successfully made the classic heel team with the classic heel manager who just cheated to win the most likeable people in the story. It's just amazing.

  13. Mostly moral reasons, yes. But right when the shutdown happened, the job I was working at the time enforced a pretty steep pay cut. I trimmed the fat on a lot of what we were spending money on and that was on the list. I actually somehow landed a new job during all of this mess and realize that I am a very lucky person.

  16. the plan ought to be "Sasha is moved to RAW and will thus never* get a title bout with Bayley (cue top-notch gloating from Dos Straps over having successfully ducked Banks) unless Sasha wins the Royal Rumble, which she of course does" since they're more than worthy of a Wrestlemania conclusion after all this time. but that kind of narrative patience seems in short supply these days

  17. AND I dig promo photos wherein the wrestler has his/her eyes rolled back into their skullbone. The usual rogue's gallery delight me with this: Sullivan, Brody, Abdullah, Lewin, Sheik - Undertaker is the modern example but he did it in the ring more than in pictures. - "it's thee manifestation of their Evil!", RAF

  20. Now they just do it whenever someone kicks out of their 3rd tier signature move 5 minutes into a RAW match. "How did he kick out of my belly to back suplex?!"

  23. Baker came back from a layoff and had the best match I've seen her in not involving Shida or Riho, and all JR could talk about was how big her shoulders are. That's not a problem? What if Patrick Mahomes came back from injury, threw six touchdowns, and all Joe Buck could talk about was how big his guns looked? As far as racism in commentary goes, I literally said in my post that there have been studies and I specifically mentioned the one about portrayal of black QBs and white QBs. It's something you can go look up. To sum up, white athletes are typically described as owing their success to their intelligence and drive, while black athletes are described as owning their successes solely to their physical attributes. So yes, saying nothing about a black wrestler except "she's athletic" has roots in systemic racism. But why read up on something when it's easier to just say something's not true? It's 2020, that's how we do it now I guess.

  25. I could see Roman v Jey pt 2 making sense from the angle of Roman wanting to run it back. Jey never submitted to Roman. He never called him the Tribal Chief tm Roman is gonna give him 'another shot' because he wants to break Jey, not physically, mentally.

  26. Need to explain something - the last two movies (MI Rogue Nation & Cold War) finished exactly the same. 2 votes. High vote being #29 and the other vote being #31 So I had to invoke the "magic" tiebreaker. In this case, I used which movie didn't have a voter who is currently banned

  27. I've been laid up with a back injury all week so I've been cherry picking various Star Trek episodes. DS9 is my favorite and I've rewatched that a lot, so I've been watching a lot of TNG and Voyager, which led me to bingeing Picard yesterday. I absolutely loved it. I was worried about dystopian Trek at first, but after the first couple of eps it it was clear that this wasn't that. There's so much to talk about so I'll just mention two things. First, Bad ass Seven fucking rocks and Ichebs death was rough. The geek in me wondered why his friend,Q's son, didn't help him. And the Voyager music playing when Seven beamed off the ship made me tear up. Second, as far as Lore goes..Sutra was Lore to Soji's Data. PS: I'm trying to think of what DS9 characters I'd like to see next season that'd make sense. Nog would have worked but Aron Eisenberg passed away this past year. But Andrew Robinson/ Garek would be perfect.

  28. Uhm, no he wasn't. That was kind of point. He never broke. Jimmy had to throw in the towel to end the match. Jey getting another match isn't about deserving one. Its about Roman's ego. And Jimmy definitely isn't ready. He was limping to the ring at Clash.

  29. Really pulling for Zeus. It accomplished nothing for them to go with another Kento challenge at this point.

  30. Colour me shocked that someone I consider as pro WWE as anyone on this board canceled the Network. They are positioning next week's show as an "important" show, with it being a draft show so them doing Bayley/Sasha makes sense. Have Bayley weasel her way out cheaply with a dq or count out, have Sasha drafted to Raw, and do the Rumble/Mania build that was mentioned before. Easy peasy.

  33. Noam Dar vs Alexander Wolfe on NXT-UK was a very good match. But nobody watches NXT-UK, so I'll mention it here so you'll all at least be aware of a good match you'll never intentionally watch.

  37. From Vince himself when young Shane thought Dracula was in his closet: "I went in that closet and started growling and yelling, having a battle. I threw a little furniture. Now Shane's really scared to death, until finally his dad walks out of the closet. I said, "Son, you never have to worry about Dracula again. Dracula's dead."

  38. I feel like Dragon Quest is classic Big 10, 3 yards and a cloud of dust, smash mouth football. I feel like Final Fantasy is modern, spread em out, throw the ball around, pass happy football. When the former is done well, it is extremely effective, just not imaginative. When it's done wrong, it's boring as fuck and feels prehistoric. When the latter is done well, it feels monumental, life changing, and revolutionary. When it's done poorly, you just want to scream, "just run the fucking ball," at your television.
