  1. Watched the Woodstock 99 doc last night and the biggest take away is that co-promoter John Scher was and still is a total bag of shit, his comments from back in 99 and today are just jaw dropping. Also, co-promoter Mike Lang shouldn't be allowed to skate just because he works everyone with his hippie gimmick, dude was a sleaze back in 1969 and 1999. I would have turned 25 a few weeks before Woodstock 99, so I was in the age range of most of the crowd but I never liked Nu-Metal, Metallica and Rage Against the Machine and hated their jock/frat boy/teen who's angry at a step-parent fanbase, so I had no desire to goto Woodstock 99 or watch any of it on MTV. They really stretched in trying to tie the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal and Y2K anxiety as a reason the mostly male crowd was acting that way towards women and so angsty, I can't remember anyone around my age caring about either, for Clinton-Lewinsky it was more of an "ewwww" than anything else, Y2K fears were something everyone just joked about. Moby and a few of the journalists talking about how things were so enlightened during the short lived "grunge" era and how things morphed into Nu-Metal was kind of off in my opinion, Nu-Metal is more of an offshoot of Hair Metal(misogyny) and 80's Hardcore/Punk(anger), shows from the "grunge" era also had issues with dudes groping women in the pit and crowd surfing, I remember announcements from the stage about it at the Lolapalooza's I went to in 92, 93 and 94. Sure the segment of mostly white young males age 13 to 33? who break stuff just to break stuff since they never deal with the consequences were all over Woodstock 99 and a problem, but the biggest reason things broke down was due to the promoters greed, the doc gets away from that at points. The crowd not caring about the Woodstock 69 shout-out's and Robby Krieger was hilarious! My favorite bands are The Who and The Kinks but I hate the forced upon me baby boomer nostalgia that dominated pop culture from 1985ish to present day, that those old hippie farts and dbags like Moby and the Creed guy got a face of reality that weekend was a bright spot. The Limp Bizkit guitarist who flipped off the crowd looked like every dude who was pushing 30 who picked a fight with me when I was between the ages of 15 and 45. Would Moby's opinion of Woodstock 99 been different if his name would have been on that plywood sign? Hating on MTV for not playing "my kind of music" had been a thing since about 1982 when MTV finally had more the 30 videos in their library.
  2. Lange was one of the best radio play-by-play announcers ever, not just hockey!
  3. Bruno turned down a run as Unified WWWF/NWA champ due to the insane schedule that was proposed, Lou Thesz also asked for a huge payday to do the job. Bruno wrestled Harley Race to a draw in a match for the NWA belt, it wasn’t a champ vs. champ match since it was during Pedro’s run as WWWF champ. The Bruno-Freddie Blassie matches may have been initially been WWWF Champion vs. West Coast or Pacific Champion, but then morphed into just Blassie trying to win the WWWF belt, I think Blassie lost the WWA World belt when he left Los Angeles for New York. The Bruno-Ray Stevens match in San Francisco was WWWF Champion vs. US Champion, the San Francisco promotion was out of the NWA at that point and the US Title was their top championship. There was no chance of Rogers doing any type of World Champion vs. World Champion match during his brief run as WWWF Champ.
  4. Clemenza is showing you the recipe for the sauce(gravy) and Ralphie is showing how to get the "macaroni" to absorb the gravy(sauce). I don't get Ralphie's addition of the butter, maybe that's another New Jersey thing like calling sauce "gravy" and all pasta "macaroni".
  5. Wow! Those are some bad accents, I'm waiting to hear someone say "Dat's ah spy-see-ah meat-ah-ball-ah".
  6. 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.
  7. Does that episode bounce between comedy and drama like Pine Barrens?
  8. 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.
  9. Pine Barrens is the best episode of a television show in the entire history of television, I will fight anyone who doesn’t agree.
  10. 3x3 Basketball is a fun watch, the OT of this mornings Japan-Belgium game was crazy.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.”
  24. 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.
  25. Andre was sold twice, Heenan sold him to DiBiase for $1,000,000 and then bought him back for $100,000!
