  2. Forget school, dopey. Take the money. We can be partners like Tiger Woods and his daddy.

  3. It's boa noite.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I thought boa tarde was early in the evening and noite was near bed time?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Bom dia= Good morning


    Boa tarde= good afternoon


    Boa noite= Good evening and good night.

  6. I was supposed to be here when the thread opened but wanted to emulate Goodell by being 15 minutes late.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Bayless always delivers unlike a certain commissioner.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Rachel Nichols laying the SmackDown on Goodell was great.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I just hope Bayless doesn't pick the Cowboys this week because they're my big bet of the week, and he is cursed when it comes to predicting.

    ReplyDelete
  10. She did a good job, but wasn't she just doing what journalists "should" do, even if many don't?

    ReplyDelete
  11. ... I'm probably picking them just for the reverse curse. Hope you haven't bet on them already...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have. The line was low as fuck. I don't like that 88 percent of the bettors are going with the Cowboys, but if they lose to the Rams, their seasons is already over.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Saw KE....Itami's debut, it was subpar, he need to vary his offense.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bayless delivers except when it comes to predictions.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Beer and Coffee rant. Dufaq?

    ReplyDelete
  16. If WWE could put together Punk vs. Austin for next year's mania, I'll resubscribe to the network.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Leaving ESPN can be the best career move these days.

    Because I love you all, here's episode 2 of the TribCast!

    http://queenstribune.com/tribcast-episode-2-talk-radio/



    Evening everybody!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I must have had too much beer and coffee myself.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Seriously who shills their projects like that? Do you see me needlessly plugging http://getridofcable,net like that?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    Someone whose production staff sucks at SEO and he needs all the clicks he can muster?

    ReplyDelete
  23. But watch the storyline be really lame, like Austin threw Punk's Frisbee on top of the McGregor's roof.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Having never seen him wrestle before, he reminded me of Daniel Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Take it from someone who lives in the future: don't drink beer with coffee, but if you must, have war Guinness.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Who are you to criticize KENTA!?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please, we all know it would start by Austin distracting Punk and costing him his match against Adam Rose.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:09 PM

    And a LOT of What?s

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, but it's much easier to do that when you have a powerful company backing you. She works for CNN now, right? You won't see Random Reporter X from the local newspaper going after Goodell like that, not because they don't have the stones, but because their company doesn't have the respect.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I know a lot of people here don't like Jim Cornette, and that's understandable, but his latest podcast with Sean Wheelock talking about the birth of the UFC was really good. He also did a really good one either last week or the week before where he talked to some guys who'd written a book about the history of wrestling in Montreal.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Speaking of that whole Adam Rose thing, I'd actually like to see a Rose/Reigns feud where one time the bunny kicks the shit out of Rose, and then he takes the rabbit-helmet off and it's Roman.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whether you agree or disagree with Cornette, there is no denying that he has had the best shoot interviews ever.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:13 PM

    You are a great friend!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks... but don't let that get out, everyone will want to be my friend then and that is more pressure than I can handle!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    Fuck 'em. You're too good for them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Which championship would you want WWE to bring back: Hardcore, Light Heavy/Cruiserweight, European, TV title, or the 2nd world title (split the WWE WHC belts again)?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Is anyone watching Night of Champions?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Here on a wrestling centric blog? Doubtful.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am on the Thanksgiving episode we were talking about BTW.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I wish You could make a disqus post by pressing enter... can't tell you how many times i have done that and only later realized I didn't make my comment.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:18 PM

    Nice. I was watching Toby and Sam's Day of Jubilee when I got home.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Which one is that? not good with episode names...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:19 PM

    None. Too many titles as it is.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:20 PM

    The episode where: Mendoza is confirmed; Sam and Mallory discuss school vouchers; Josh deals with a justice candidate who wants reparations; CJ does the Jackal; and Mandy asks Toby to help her get a new Panda Bear from China. Plus, Zoey hangs out with drug dealers.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I disagree. Their roster is deep enough to sustain at least one more. And it makes for more compelling angles in the midcard (or main event if there are 2 world titles).

    ReplyDelete
  46. I really can't see Cena winning, or at least walking out the champ. Maybe now is when my Rollins cash-in scenario happens, but if Brock loses it means that a) Brock loses all or most of his usefulness, and b) logically speaking, Brock gets a rematch... and I can't see them doing that match again.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oooooh saw that one recently... excellent. I love how Sam was arguing the opposite of what he thinks just because he can't help himself.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    And yet, the titles are treated like crap, so why bother creating another one? Personally, I say merge the US and IC Titles into the IC Title and then introduce a TV Title.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 19, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    Cruiserweight.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Also how Toby forbids anyone being happy until it is official.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:23 PM

    I say that was smart. You don't want to tempt fate like that. You end up bringing down wrath from the thing high atop the place! You've gotta go outside, turn around three times and spit.

    ReplyDelete
  52. "Not because I am right and you are wrong, though I am and you are... but because I am better at this than you"

    ReplyDelete
  53. If any the Cruiserweight just for the faster paced matches.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:24 PM

  55. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:25 PM

    So here I am, listening to http://queenstribune.com/tribcast-episode-2-talk-radio/ while browsing http://getridofcable.net trying to find channels to add to my Roku.


    I work for free, fellas.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I honestly think Toby wouldn't be a good communications guy and would be a much better policy adviser.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:25 PM

    That sounds like a great way to pass the time!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have faith that someday the titles won't be treated like afterthoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  59. You really need to get something for me to shill...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:26 PM

    I might restart my album review blog.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I will be your whore... wait that sounded bad.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Falcons-Bucs has become the standard bearer for football blowouts in 2014. I'm seeing South Florida go up 14-0 on UConn and thinking, "They're about to go Atlanta on them."

    ReplyDelete
  63. :: People under 25 :: "What's an album?"

    ReplyDelete
  64. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:28 PM

    You should review Billy Conahan, who you can hear on episode 2 of the TribCast.


    But not really. That dude was terrible. Although the track we played sampled heavily from Ocarina of Time.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:29 PM

    I might restart my digitally-downloadable-collection-of -tracks-I-put-on-my-iPod blog

    ReplyDelete
  66. Roman Reigns Vs Rusev? That's a match that should absolutely not be happening 2 days before a PPV.


    This company has lost the plot.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Rolls of the tongue.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ahem... DQ finish.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:30 PM

    If you're going to sample of video game soundtrack, that would not be the one.

    ReplyDelete
  70. When Stranger posts the thread he gives me options. Bayless just mails it completely in.
    Back in the days of kayfabe, what wrestler did you know for certain had put his notice in and completely stopped caring? Off-hand, I say the Road Warriors in 1990.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Didn't they do that match on the SD before another recent PPV?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    Stranger cares about the little Doomers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. it really turned into a high school game. Only thing missing was the running clock in the 4th quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  74. You need options to be spelled out for you?

    "In this thread, we use the English language and discuss things."

    ReplyDelete
  75. we in turn, care about you!

    ReplyDelete
  76. You keep forgetting I'm black. I wouldn't even be here without white people showing me the way.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Is that you in the avatar?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:33 PM

    I brought a new photographer on board today. It's a shame his name isn't Odabee Jones.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Are you darker or lighter than that guy?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Now there is a good discussion topic... video game soundtracks that were awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I haven't seen a good "White teacher goes to the 'hood and makes the kids care about school" move in like 3 years.

    ReplyDelete
  82. a bit darker but not by much.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:34 PM

    Most comm. directors I know actually have to deal with the media. Toby seemed to be a senior advisor, speechwriter and guy who handled the press secretary.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Can't book a finish? Don't book the match.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Fun fact: my official role with our company was modeled after Toby.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Bayless is the biggest fraud n this blog... he can't even do something this simple correctly.

    ReplyDelete
  87. you ever seen that movie that Coolio did the song for? The name escapes me at the moment. I've always been afraid to watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  88. ...Well, you're still mulatto enough.

    ReplyDelete
  89. So I'm stuck in Biloxi, MS and I don't gamble. Dammit.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    Especially considering the "Hey Listen!" that's looped throughout the thing.

    ReplyDelete
  91. MGS3. DISCUSSION OVAH.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm a power player. I go into every game with 6 fouls and intend to use every one of them

    ReplyDelete
  93. I guess I don't see how they pegged him for that role as Sam would have been much better for it IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Now you're talking for the last.... I don't know, seven years.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Just saw a headline where some NFL scout called Jameis Winston a "fraud." How is he a fraud exactly? Is he not really a quarterback? Does he not really attend Florida State? Is Jameis even his real name?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Let the church say amen!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Dangerous Minds?, about as crappy as you'd expect

    ReplyDelete
  98. One Winged Angel from FF7 would like to speak to you.

    ReplyDelete
  99. For me, DQ finishes on TV are fine for me. Just don't book them on PPVs.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Yeah, that's it

    ReplyDelete
  101. Dangerous Minds. Then there was the one with Matthew Perry, and the one with Hillary Swank. Those three come to mind first.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Sounds like you've got the "blues"... of what kind, I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Basically being stuck on an AF base with nothing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I said *raps desk* discussion.... over.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Liked the semi-similar Finding Forrester, depending on how sick you got of the "you're the man now, dog" meme

    ReplyDelete
  106. Devin Harris was nice, like All-Star caliber nice, for like a year or two. Then he just fell off.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Freddie Coleman has been filling in on Numbers Never Lie. He's been a hot take machine all week. He's really gunning for his own show. The kid is 20. Rape stuff aside, he's just an average college kid.

    ReplyDelete
  108. You know that guy though right... DONT TELL ME ALL BLACK PEOPLE DONT KNOW EACH OTHER

    ReplyDelete
  109. ....All the time......

    ReplyDelete
  110. (I don't know the next line, only went to a "black" church twice)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Forgot about that one. yeah, I think Hollywood is about due for another.

    ReplyDelete
  112. What was the one with Billy Blanks and the heel turn by the black dude off Ghostbusters? Was that the same movie?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    Probably because Sam seemed like he was happy just being on staff. Had they gone with their first choice for communications director, Toby would have walked.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Dick Vitale wrote Jameis needs to talk to "the Classy Derek Jeter." (He capitalized 'Classy' just like that.) Jeter wasn't famous when he was 20, and Jeter is just good at doing his dirt under the radar.

    ReplyDelete
  115. The Hardyz on the Jericho podcast... God they're so inbred. I bet, somehow, Jeff is actually Matt's quarter-uncle.

    ReplyDelete
  116. the correct answer is God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. You really need to study up on Black Churchology if you ever want to make it to Jeopardy

    ReplyDelete
  117. Billy Blanks and Ernie Hudson? I gotta look that up now...

    ReplyDelete
  118. Communications director.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Damn... I don't suppose I can use "I voted for Obama" here?


    Seriously though I am militantly atheist... but those were the only times I enjoyed church (a family friend that was babysitting me took me with them)

    ReplyDelete
  120. More specifically, at this point I'm the point man in negotiations with distributors for service contracts.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Eh, but in today's society, he should actually get credit for that. 20 years as THE guy in NYC and the harshest scandal involving him that really hit the public was creepily/douchily giving memorabilia baskets to people he fucks? There's a lot of scandal ridden pieces of crap that'd sign up for that rep

    ReplyDelete
  122. What industry, if you don't mind me asking?

    ReplyDelete
  123. it was one of those 3 in the morning on HBO movies. Ernie Hudson had the kids selling dope or something. It may actually be Jean Claude Van Dam. I know the babyface was a martial arts dude.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Speaking of mailing it in, anybody seen the previews for "Dolphin Tale 2" with Morgan Freeman? He's pulling a total CTC job there.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Yeah, I'm just saying Jeter wouldn't exactly be able to give Jameis advice on how to handle being a megastar on a college campus at 20 years old.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'm not big into church as I used to be but I still enjoy going for the singing.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I enjoyed Emperor Doom. Though, I read it in the new "Judgment Day" trade where it was slated after yet another stupid battle between the Avengers and the Legion of the Unliving.

    ReplyDelete
  128. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah, I hope everyone involved in that crapfest is.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Fair enough. Though, 22 running around NYC or 20 on a campus, I'd bet it's easier to get shit covered up in college than it would be in NYC

    ReplyDelete
  130. Security and monitoring services, in a nutshell.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'm thoroughly confused with all this stuff now. I'm not much on moralizing stuff but it seems inconsistent to say we need to treat women better and then high fiving a dude for banging scores of chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Sounds interesting, you must be a charismatic dude.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I don't think so. This was a straight to video deal. Let me check IMDB

    ReplyDelete
  134. "We are both writers"


    "I suppose if you expand the definition to people that can spell"

    ReplyDelete
  135. Wait, yeah that's it. I've merged about 8 different movies.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I'm looking at Hudson's IMDB. I forgot he was also the principal in "The Ron Clark Story," which is the Matthew Perry movie I mentioned before.

    ReplyDelete
  137. While we're talking church and movies, have you watched any of those Black church Tyler-Perry-lite B-movies? Robin Givens, Clifton Powell and Eddie from Family Matters are usually in them.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I'm here for 40 minutes, I demand to be entertained!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Has there been a good Night of Champions PPV yet? I remember most of them being mediocre as hell.

    ReplyDelete
  140. 2011 was okayish.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I hated that one.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Yeah it kicks off the fall/winter doldrums

    ReplyDelete
  143. My ex-wife is big into those. We'd always grab one from the 5 dollar bin when we go to Walmart.

    ReplyDelete
  144. All this talk of black churches made me go and dig out this video again

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6U3hx-MpSA

    ReplyDelete
  145. Henry winning was cool.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I can't watch it. What is it?

    ReplyDelete
  147. Overshadowed by HHH beating Punk.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Serious question... your name isn't really Devin Harris?

    ReplyDelete
  149. Congregations dancing with Drum & Bass impsed over it.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Anyone remember Kardinal Offishal? I sure as hell didn't until I heard the "Beautiful" song by Akon.

    ReplyDelete
  151. No. lulz. He's a basketball player.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Who, what and who?

    ReplyDelete
  153. Fuck. I really need to learn more about sports.

    ReplyDelete
  154. that's never a bad thing. Keeps ya from falling asleep.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Only one I saw, and it might not fit the exact criteria, was "Who Made the Potato Salad" starring Jaleel White. He was meeting his fiancée's family for the first time, they lived in the hood, shenanigans ensue...

    ReplyDelete
  156. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:56 PM

    Dangerous Minds.

    ReplyDelete
  157. He's too stupid to be an NFL QB.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Used to listen back in the early 2000s. Can't remember the song though.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Man that was a lot of words I don't recognize.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:56 PM

    Was it even English?

    ReplyDelete
  161. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:57 PM

    DANCE MONKEY!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Everyone should check out that Mental Floss article that Scott posted at my suggestion. Great, great read. Grantland also had a good article about what football might look like without the NFL.

    ReplyDelete
  163. The stories are very formulaic. They work best when the cast has fun with it and goes way over the top with the performance.

    ReplyDelete
  164. So is Ben Roethlisberger and he did alright for himself.

    ReplyDelete
  165. don't worry. He's a guy you wouldn't know unless you really, really followed the NBA

    ReplyDelete
  166. They ran the ball his first couple of years and have had a great defense for most of his tenure.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the X-F-L.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Something about an acorn...

    ReplyDelete
  169. It was rather comical and could have been so much worse (relatively speaking), with the Falcons fumbling inside the 5-yard line. At least the Bucs scored:

    http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=321209026



    Sadly, I genuinely thought the Cardinals had suffered a worse loss.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Evidently the Chicago team came out to Brock Lesnar's music.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 6:59 PM

    I had a guy leave me a message on my voicemail in what I assume was Arabic this week - other members of my staff agreed with my guess. No idea what he said or what he wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I watched two games, at most.

    ReplyDelete
  173. "We're going to bomb your building next Monday, and we're telling you this because we want to spare you."

    ReplyDelete
  174. Best Night of Champions match I remember is Triple H/Cena from 2008 so that PPV would probably be the best NOC.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 7:00 PM

    Those Obama-loving organizers?

    ReplyDelete
  176. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 19, 2014 at 7:00 PM

    Woo!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Either that or the thing that falls out of trees.

    ReplyDelete
  178. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhrPl1Tj5xA

    ReplyDelete
  179. Even without football society will still need that violence void filled. The game is a lot closer to the stuff the Romans were doing than I care to admit. Took a theater class in college and had to write a paper on it.

    ReplyDelete
  180. The one that keeps popping up on Netflix for me is "Brother White" with the dad from Family Matters and Breckin Meyer.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Your fields are SMALL, goddamn.

    Arena League, it's 1/2 the size of an NFL field.

    ReplyDelete
  184. My favorite one has Tichina Arnold in it. She was on the Breakfast Club and admitted she hit the chitlin circuit cause she need the work.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0374923/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    ReplyDelete
  185. Oh. Yeah for a minute there I was like "football can't be *that* hard. I could run that and avoid being decapitated by monsters".

    ReplyDelete
  186. No lie, I would easily welcome back gladiatorial games. Fuck it.
