  1. Wow! Those are some bad accents, I'm waiting to hear someone say "Dat's ah spy-see-ah meat-ah-ball-ah".
  2. Heenan was at ringside for the first few Flair-Hogan matches, he tapped out once he realized being on the road with Flair would kill him. They had Jimmy Hart sub for a “sick” Heenan until Perfect showed up, I was at the Pittsburgh show right after Heenan bailed, they announced at the beginning of the show he wasn’t going to be there.
  3. Does that episode bounce between comedy and drama like Pine Barrens?
  4. I was a few weeks from turning 10 years old when Ghostbusters was released and loved it because it was FUNNY!!!! Is the nostalgia I see from so many people towards Ghostbusters from the cartoon and toy line more than the movie? I was 12 and aging out of those things when the cartoon first hit tv so it’s not in my nostalgia wheelhouse.
  5. Pine Barrens is the best episode of a television show in the entire history of television, I will fight anyone who doesn’t agree.
  6. 3x3 Basketball is a fun watch, the OT of this mornings Japan-Belgium game was crazy.
  7. 2007 was a crazy and weird season! Michigan lost to Appalachian State, Pitt saved everyone from seeing West Virginia in the National Championship Game, Hawaii went to the Sugar Bowl! Cal, Boston College, Kansas, and West Virginia all were ranked #2 at one point, and Missouri was #1 for a week!
  8. That makes sense, the PAC12 has always made rumblings about adding teams in the central time zone, maybe they pull Kansas, Ok State and Texas Tech from Big 12 leftovers, then tack on UNLV, New Mexico or Houston to get to 16. All the teams on the coast in one division and the mountain/plains teams in the other.
  9. If the Big 10 adds Notre Dame they'll ditch divisions and have the two teams with the best record play in the conference championship game, having an even number of teams is no longer needed.
  10. I don't think the Big 10 is going to expand just to expand like they did with Rutgers and Maryland, they'll wait at the alter with the ACC for Notre Dame's hand and if the Irish join up that'll be the only team they add(same if ND would join the ACC).
  11. WVU couldn't even get a sniff from the ACC due to their academic standing, there's no way the Big Ten would even include the Mountaineers on a last resort list. West Virginia lucked into the Big 12 due to them desperately needing a team to get up to 10. The Big 10 wants to expand southeast but to places where people actually live, like Virginia(UVA), North Carolina(UNC) and Georgia(GT), but many many factors will keep that from every happening.
  12. I didn't know until this morning that NBC is actually showing the Opening Ceremonies live, is this the first time they've done that for Games in an inconvenient time zone?
  13. What options does Kansas have? The ACC is going to be waiting at the alter for Notre Dame until the end of time, even if ND decided to join Kansas would be way down the list of contenders. The PAC12 needs to add a team with a football program people want to watch and Kansas doesn't have that, plus I doubt the politicians in Kansas would allow the Jayhawks to be in a conference with the likes of Cal-Berkley, UCLA, Oregon and so on. True that BSU, Cincy, UCF and Houston won't bring in Texas/OU money, but the table scraps the Big 12 leftovers would get by adding schools like that will be more than chilling in the AAC with the likes of East Carolina, Temple, Tulsa and Tulane.
  14. If Texas and OU bolt the Big 12 will absorb schools from the AAC and MWC, kind of like how the Big East(current AAC) went and added C-USA teams after the ACC raids.
  15. I made that same alignment in NCAA 2014! I don't think the conference champion ever won more than 9 games and half the conference would end up 5-7.
  16. There's a lot more opportunities to play college football now compared to the 70's and 80's, even MAC and C-USA schools have massive dudes playing on their lines.
  17. The 1982 NBA Finals were the first one I remember watching, in that time I don’t think any player has played as good in a Finals as Giannis did in this year. Also, I’m not saying this due to being 2nd generation Greek-American.
  18. I wonder if Jesse used names of bands who just played in the Twin Cities, like he saw the tour poster in the Civic Center lobby and took a mental note for promo day.
  19. When Jesse would name drop the bands he partied with he would always mention the lesser known members to make it more believable. He’d never say I partied with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, he’d say “I partied with my good friends Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and the rest of the Stones.”
  20. I started watching around the 7th round, from what I saw and how the announcers were talking, I wasn’t shocked by it being a draw, the Showtime judge might have scored it a draw since he had Castano up a round heading into 12. 117-111 was bad though.
  21. Andre was sold twice, Heenan sold him to DiBiase for $1,000,000 and then bought him back for $100,000!
  22. Rose might have had Heenan in his corner the same taping that the Piper's Pit was recorded. The early expansion has a lot of weird manager-wrestler combos, like Heenan with Rose, Adonis and Link, and Hart with Bundy.
  23. Or watched a Bob Backlund match or amateur wrestling.
  24. Season 1 is very good but they were still working the kinks out, there’s going to be a point in season 2 where you‘ll be hooked and in for the full run.
  25. Thanks to some rainy days I've been watching some obscure flicks on the various streaming services I have. First Lifeguard a 1976 flick starring a pre-grizzled Sam Elliott! I had seen parts of this movie in the past but never from start and never to the end, It's way more interesting than good, it has a time capsule feel since it's shoot all on location and there's a few WTF moments. The biggest WTF is shortly after lecturing a newbie lifeguard played by Parker Stevenson about the dangers of having sex with someone under age, Elliott's character has sex with a 17 year old girl played by Kathleen Quinlan, in the freaking Lifeguard Hut! They don't show them having sex, its just a shot of the hut with a sappy song playing but the way it's edited it seems like Elliott's character was pretty quick. He doesn't get arrested for this, he just has to deal with her hanging around him all summer. There's also a scene with an old man flashing people at the beach, that is just as creepy as that would be in real life. Elliott's character dealing with getting old and having people be "OMG your 32 and still a lifeguard" is what you would expect it to be, the movie does have one of the best high school reunion scenes I've ever seen. On Showtime and their app. Family Business a 1989 film directed by Sidney Lumet, I don't think I had seen this since the 90's. Just like Vincent Patrick's other novel adapted into a movie(The Pope of Greenwich Village) it's ruined by bad casting that overshadows a good story. Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman, and Matthew Broderick play grandfather, father and grandson, Connery's character is a lifelong thief who is depending on the scene either Scottish or Irish, Hoffman is his son Vito who was a thief but went straight after some time in jail his mother is Sicilian, Broderick is a genius who won a prestigious scholarship and his mother is Jewish. It's really hard to believe any of them are related, plus Connery and Hoffman kind of phone it in. The story is good and I actually read the book when I was in high school but this movie is a huge disappointment. Was on Vudu but I think it's gone now. The Last Rites of Joe May a small 2011 movie starring Dennis Farina. This was way better than I thought it would be, it's shame that it disappeared after its initial festival run since Farina is great in it. Can be found deep in the bowels of Peacock. All Square a 2018 film that I don't think had any real release outside of festivals. This movie is character actor and "that guy, that girl, that voice" heaven, Michael Kelly who's in a ton of stuff usually as a cop or FBI agent, plays a bookie who can barely make ends meet and is a total scumbag, he ends up kind of befriending an exes son which leads to him taking bets on Little League games. This isn't really a comedy and at times is really depressing, but it totally nails small time bookies and gambling addicts. Currently on Amazon Prime.
