Sunday Daytime Thread

Some of you may want a place to talk about whatever it is you're doing right now. There will be another thread in the evening.

Comments

  1. If it means less threadjacking... I'm all for it.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Also, I'm doing jack shit.

    That's the purpose. I saw threadjacking yesterday, so I threw up a thread.

  4. Well, Sunday is already over where I live, but I spent most of the day watching Royal Rumble 1994 and 2008. Got bored and turned it off. Took a nap.


    Woke up and started watching Unforgiven 2000, for no adequately explored reason. The main event was a Fatal 4 Way between The Rock (C) vs Kane vs Undertaker vs Chris Benoit. And BAH GAWD it bought back a lot of memories.


    A peaceful Sunday spent watching QUALITY wrestling with no disturbance from the family. Scott Keith must be rolling in his grave.

    Hi guys, thanks for doing this stranger. I'm happy to admit I'm a loser. I went out the last two nights. Got invited to go out tonight but turned it down because I thought in my head "I wanna chill at home,watch movies, and post on the BoD"

    There's some fodder for you NPP trolls!

    So for the guys that were saying that the Oakland A's miss Cespedes, they dealt for Adam Dunn. I'm not sure he's the answer for them, however. This is a guy that hit .160 a couple of years ago....for a full season.

  16. Meh, that was Punk-HHH, right?

    Watching Captain America: the first avenger. Okay so far.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't get why people here even mention NPP. By far their most active thread is a thread about this blog. That's rather telling about how much their opinions are really worth. Blah blah blah, don't feed the troll.

  35. MikeyMike, WitnessAugust 31, 2014 at 12:22 PM

    I wasn't honest with my shrink so it didn't help. Zoloft was bad for me too.

  36. The first one is really meh. I loved the second one, and loved even more because I saw with a date.

    ReplyDelete
  37. MikeyMike, WitnessAugust 31, 2014 at 12:24 PM

    Fair enough. I check their thread every week or so and it is quite sad. Jobber is public enemy number one there.

    That sucks. But again you're in college so I have to imagine you have other options.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:30 PM

    The point is: Dunn won't get you the World Series. The Angels have bypassed these guys.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, but at least he'll strike out 200 times.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:31 PM

    What an odd thing to be at a young age: a John Stossel fan.

    ReplyDelete
  46. They got Dunn to help, not carry them to the Series.

    ReplyDelete
  47. She studies International relations and is in the "Privatize everything" team.

    ReplyDelete
  48. First one is great.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I was kinda meh on the first two Hobbit movies when I saw them but I just re watched them recently and I liked them a lot more. Not LOTR quality but still good.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The first half is great, but falls down in the second half where the action starts.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:37 PM

    Dunn will strike out with men on base moreso than make contact with men on base.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:40 PM

    I agree with this. I liked them both enough. It gets compared to LOTR way too much by critics and fanboys.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sitting in a hospital room with my father watching a blowout on ESPN. Don't drink and drive, kids. Also don't hide being a full-blown alcoholic, drive into a tree and be in the hospital for 3 days without anyone knowing about it. Not cool.

  54. Listening to Shaq "I know I got skillz". Terribly underrated.

  55. And? He will also walk a ton and hit home runs.

  57. We are here for you like Flair was there for Sting at Halloween Havoc

    ReplyDelete
  58. Stinkin' fan boys. Liking stuff they like. Ruins it for the rest of us who are just trying to enjoy things for what they really are. They are really pouring dirt onto the grave of this thing called ART that I love so much.

    ReplyDelete
  59. How many hours are you ahead of us?

    ReplyDelete
  60. The show got cancelled because it wasn't selling toys, UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  61. He obviously lost whatever touch he had with those LOTR movies though. You could see it happening in ROTK. He had too much money to make these Hobbit movies.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yeah. It's kind of a great sequel to Justice League. Did they get two seasons or if it?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I had fun staying in posting on here all day. Not shame to admit it. I'm going out today and tomorrow so there is a balance, I guess? I don't know. You may want to ignore me cause I'm a divorcee that has just turned into a complete man-whore

    ReplyDelete
  64. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:46 PM

    Your glass is half full, mine is half empty. They lost a threat in the middle of their lineup, and replaced him with a lesser threat. Other guys in the lineup benefited from hitting around Cespedes. In my opinion, Dunn does not provide that same sort of presence. He'll help a little, yes. In the end, I think he'll be a non-factor.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Can the NFL start already? Good grief

  66. The Joel Schumacher sindrome, Jackson works best on low budgets.

  67. Hey I need someones opinion. I only have Antonio gates as a TE in fantasy (but play in league with a flex we/rb/te spot). Someone offered to trade me Edleman and Vernon Davis for Megatron. Should I do it?

    ReplyDelete
  68. What? NC A&T vs whoever the fuck they're playing not doing it for ya?

    ReplyDelete
  69. It's not like they gave Cespedes away.

  70. NCAA should really split up the first Saturday and move some games to today.

    ReplyDelete
  71. hey man don't bury HBCU football! Let me know when it's halftime so I can catch the bands

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm going with a strong no on that one. Honestly, you're not gaining much with Vernon that you probably can't pick up on your waiver wire. It's not worth losing Megatron.

    ReplyDelete
  73. In my No Mercy Playthroughs these are the current champions


    World: Jericho
    IC: TAKA Michinoku
    European: My caw
    Tag belts: HHH and HBK
    Light Heavyweight: Perry Saturn.
    Women's: Lita.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I wouldn't do it. I'm always against trading away a guy who is basically guaranteed to put up numbers for you week in and week out.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm not a fan of college games on non-Saturdays. It's more about me jonesing for the NFL

    ReplyDelete
  76. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 12:50 PM

    These Hobbit movies really have an overabundance of CGI. There wasn't as much of that in LOTR. I enjoy the special effects CGI can bring, but too much can be overkill.

  80. Alternate 8 booking: Flair vs Hogan and Jake vs Savage for the title.

    ReplyDelete
  81. They were trading Cespedes in the offseason anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Also Taka is no IC champ.

    ReplyDelete
  83. It's a video game, no need to copy reality.

    ReplyDelete
  84. cowardwhotriedtoquitAugust 31, 2014 at 1:01 PM

    That is terrible. Even if you really believe in Davis, the drop from Megatron to Edelman more than offsets Davis to Gates (or a waiver wire TE).

    ReplyDelete
  85. avoid that trade

    ReplyDelete
  86. great fucking song "I lean on the statue of liberty when I get tired"

    ReplyDelete
  87. He cut weight, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  88. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:04 PM

    When you have a true elite at a position like Megatron, you keep him. The key to winning fantasy -- and I know about that as your defending 2x BoD Fantasy Football champion -- is minimizing risk and stacking the odds in your favor, so it's all about having money in the bank on your roster, so to speak. Whatever upside Edelman or Davis has, that will pale in comparison to what CJ will average, on top of the half-dozen MONSTER games he will put up (esp. with Stafford chucking it 40x a week). Calvin's an untouchable on your roster, don't get fleeced.

    ReplyDelete
  89. When Warrior was fired after SS 91 did WCW try to bring him in? What about SurSer 92? I know he couldn't be Ultimate Warrior but that has never stopped them before

    ReplyDelete
  90. I was bored to tears with that one... I watched it with my step son and he kept asking me when we were going to see Captain America... of course when I took him to see Avengers he asked me when we were going to see Batman so it is what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  91. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:06 PM

    They're decent, but there's more padding in both movies than a teenager's bra. The Hobbit should've been two two-hour movies tops; there's some great moments mired in a lot of boring or uninteresting stuff because Peter Jackson doesn't have a semblance of self-control with the material.

    ReplyDelete
  92. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:07 PM

    I love it. Very Rocketeer-ish in its style and fun, which makes sense considering the director. One of my favorite MCU movies.

    ReplyDelete
  93. He better learnt he difference between Marvel and DC.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I enjoyed it, but Winter Soldier was by far the better of the 2.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Ah yes that is like stage 2 of getting divorced.

    ReplyDelete
  96. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:09 PM

    Second was fantastic. Great story that ripples the whole MCU, and I love the way they evolved the use of the shield with alot of creative offensive uses. I want 10 movies around Cap and Falcon.

    ReplyDelete
  97. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:09 PM

    Oh yeah, Cap 2 is a top-tier superhero film. And it's not even my favorite Marvel movie of the year. They're rolling, as MAGGLE would say.

    ReplyDelete
  98. And still is not Marvel's best, it's a amazing film but IM1, GoTG and Avengers are better.

    ReplyDelete
  99. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:10 PM

    In the words of Sting, I AGREE! My top 4 would definitely be that quartet.

    ReplyDelete
  100. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:12 PM

    I think he'll help a little bit, he's actually been having a decent season outside of the usual sinkhole BA. I think the middle of the lineup just needs one more threat to take the slack off the other guys in the lineup who are clearly pressing.

    ReplyDelete
  101. What would be the worst ones then? The only ones I can think of were IM3, Thor 2, and maybe Hulk.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Cap 1 and Thor were the worst films.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Marvel is on roll, DC is desperate cramming everyone they have on their next film.

    ReplyDelete
  104. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:12 PM

    The only MCU movie I didn't like was The Incredible Hulk, and even that was decent. Thor 2 was fun (I love the climax) and I;m one of the biggest supporters of Iron Man 3.

    ReplyDelete
  105. And I am so glad I don't follow those films.

    ReplyDelete
  106. It's so out of character for me and I don't even care.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I hated the climax of Thor 2 ( the subway joke really killed it for me), but that final scene before the credits left me wanting more,

    ReplyDelete
  108. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:14 PM

    Ladarius Green is going to get a lion's share of the touches at TE by year's end. Dude is legit.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Incredible is my 2nd favorite pre Avengers film, I loved IM3. The Mandarin twist was extremely well made.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I enjoyed the first Thor, more than I thought I would.

    ReplyDelete
  111. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:15 PM

    I honestly didn't see that ending coming. Great hook.

    ReplyDelete
  112. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:16 PM

    Yep, I loved the Mandarin arc too, so much so that I wish they didn't retcon it.

    ReplyDelete
  113. While DC says is Impossible to make a Wonder Woman movie, Marvel does a film where one of the protagonists is a raccon that talks and shoots people with a rocket launcher.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I hated, but fanboys were bitching as hell.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Ragknarok is coming.

    ReplyDelete
  116. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:17 PM

    Same. That was the one that made me a believer that the MCU could pull off any character, because I really doubted they could pull off Thor without feeling really dumb. And they couldn't find two better fits as Thor and Loki.

    ReplyDelete
  117. And the worst part is I don't see any Thor films in the near future.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 1:18 PM

    Now why did I think that watching a documentary about a turtle's journey from Florida to North Africa and back again was a good idea last night?

    ReplyDelete
  119. I don't mind the padding. Thought Tauriel and Lake Town were the best parts of the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Why was Peggy Sue so cool with Honky Tonk clearly wanting to bang Elizabeth?

  122. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:19 PM

    In week 5, Guardians of the Galaxy dropped only 5% from its gross last week. The staying power it's showing is nuts, and it's gonna be the first non-Downey MCU movie to hit $300m in the States. Not bad for a film that garnered a Hounsou-esque "Who?" reaction when announced.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 31, 2014 at 1:20 PM

    Straight edge also applies to movies? I think I'll watch Bellflower next time.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Yeah, Thor had a nice coming of age tale, it became one of my favorites, until GoTG of course.

    ReplyDelete
  125. My point was you were on drugs. You know what makes a joke funny? Having to explain it.

    ReplyDelete
  126. ::Meanwhile in DC::


    DC president: FUCKKK!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Also the Dol Guldor stuff was awesome. The Sauron reveal was so great. I think the problem is that the Dwarves quest is the least interesting story in the movies.

    ReplyDelete
  128. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 31, 2014 at 1:21 PM

    Big props to Bradley Cooper; I was unsure about his casting going in but he fucking nailed it.

    When it's all sud-n-done , it'll probably wind up making more both domestically and internationally than Man of Steel. No wonder they're trying to put every DC character in existence in BvS.

  136. The creative team would DIE if you took away their ability to job a champion to build to a title match.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Im guessing if they ever went along with this, they would immediately destroy the title's credibility by having the champ win it in a battle royal..

    ReplyDelete
  138. so sort of like TNA's tv title

    ReplyDelete
  139. Is that Option C? The only reason I don't like TNA's way of doing things is the X-Division Title is meant to highlight a certain style. It doesn't make as much sense for them to do it.


    The UWF used to do this with their Television Title. ROH used to have a #1 contender's trophy. This way the U.S. Title is sought-after, and someone like Seth Rollins gets squeezed from both ends. Obviously, he doesn't want to cash it in now, but he guys like Reigns, Cena and (until recently) Ambrose nipping at his heels.


    Let the IC Title be what it once was - the title for people who worked their asses off.

    ReplyDelete
  140. He had a **** match with Angle?

    ReplyDelete
  141. "when Reigns was obviously the best thing about the group over the next couple of years"

    when did that ever happen?

    ReplyDelete
  142. exactly. Reigns is awesome but I am afraid his push starts to feel less and less "organic".

    I think the comparison to Orton in 2004 that I have read similar times during the last weeks is not that far-fetched. Orton is a pretty great worker (despite what some on this blog might think) but his whole push in 2004 felt too "forced".

    ReplyDelete
  143. was he appeal ever "silent badass"? I think at least after The Shield he was always presented as "the cool dude".

    ReplyDelete
  144. wouldn't even be necessary. Batista didn't squash Triple H but beat him decisively. that was still enough to give Batista credibility for at least two years.

    ReplyDelete
  145. it means that Ambrose is such a "loose cannon" that he wouldn't hesitate to beat the crap out of Lesnar with a chair or the ring bell if he felt that he had to.

    ReplyDelete
  146. unfortunately that show isn't.

    ReplyDelete
  147. ... and playing the second fiddle to the heel-turned John Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  148. with a title match with different challengers each week it wouldn't take long until the title gained a lot more value (well of course, unless the WWE gets bored with that idea too quickly and books a title change two or three weeks after the first defense).

    ReplyDelete
  149. Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio in 2009, although one could argue it the title wasn't the focus of that feud.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Sounds like damaged goods to me.

    ReplyDelete
  151. It's time for him to get a new gimmick.

    How about Roman "Purple" Reigns?

    ReplyDelete
  152. I think it was the Raw after Wrestlemania 21. It was a great match.

    ReplyDelete
  153. The Love-Matic Grampa!August 31, 2014 at 5:06 PM

    The secondary title issue, much like most self-inflicted WWE problems, is easily fixed. This a booked product, not a shoot. Which means you can, you know, BOOK THINGS. If you want a guy to be dominant, you (*gasp*) book him to be dominant. If you want a title to mean something, you actually book it to mean something. And so on.

    This isn't UFC where an occasional box-office dud wins a belt and then you're stuck with him until he loses. If you think someone has the potential to be the next Big Thing, then book him that way. If it doesn't work out, then cut your losses and recalibrate. And if the current crop of headliners doesn't like it, show them the door and let them try and make things happen in Florida. Odds are, they'll fall right in line.

    ReplyDelete
  154. get right the fuck out of here! you're kidding???!!?!!?!

  155. Oh I remember that match. Flair looked really old there. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Adam "Colorado" CurryAugust 31, 2014 at 5:22 PM

    It's just a lack of long term planning. In years past they'd already know that they're doing at the next WM, or at least have a rough idea. These days they have no idea no idea what they're doing on Raw, and that's 24 hours away. And I think this is the cause of the 50/50 crap, not a result of it.

  157. Yeah, but the average fan doesn't look at Ziggler winning the IC championship and saying, "pfft, yeah, well look what it did for Big E!" If they had Reigns win the US title and he just went on to dominate the title scene before losing it to another up and comer so that he can move on to the WWE title scene, nobody would think twice about the title being damaged goods. This is the same method that worked for Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Edge, Randy Orton, John Cena, the Rock, Triple H, Steve Austin, and loads of others. And this whole idea of cataputing somebody to the WWE Championship only to "demote" them to the secondary titles -- like Sheamus -- does the Superstar more harm than good.

    I just think of the men who successfully booked wrestling in the past and, well, most of them weren't Mensa candidates. But they had common sense and a feel for the audience they were catering to. And yet to hear some people tell the tale, booking is the hardest thing in the world and we internet nerds don't have a clue how hard it is. Seems to me if a guy is over, you push him. If someone doesn't like it, well, what are they going to do? Quit? In most jobs, if someone you don't like gets promoted over you, you just deal with it because you've got bills to pay and the job market sucks. Professional wrestling is no different.

  159. Well, they have planned ahead to Mania the last few years. It's just that the majority of fans didn't care for the plan (Cena/Rock twice, Batista/Orton).

  161. I miss the days where the secondary titles were used to get people ready for ME runs...or find out they weren't quite cut out for it.

  162. Hart Dynasty were fine, it was just a bad time for teams.

  163. I think if they unified the US and the IC title and created some super midcard championship then it could work, but both titles in their current state would only pull him down.

  164. If we put the US or IC title on John Cena // it might repair the damage.

  165. Work-wise or gimmick-wise? Colt's okay in the ring, but the comedy crap gets pretty tiresome after a while.

  166. Hey, J.D.! You still doing reviews? I always liked your ROH stuff.

  167. No, they have planned the main event for mania the last few years. Everything else is on the fly. Which kills the product. Say what you will, but VR at least had a plan for the under/mid card

  168. Yep. Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio turned the IC belt around overnight in 2009 after several years of being a useless belt and made the IC belt credible again.


    It's booking 101: Put a meaningless belt on a top guy and it becomes meaningful again. Problem solved.
