Comments

  1. Got my medieval result, passed, one of the few to do it. Killing time since I'm no longer in class, talking with Anna on FB (she lives far away for a visit), Not excited for christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I need to just bite the bullet and get cable again for sports, and sports alone. Relying on streams from time to time sucks if I'm blacked out of a game, especially when baseball season starts.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Two weeks of vacation and I'm already bored.

    ReplyDelete
  4. That's the same boat I'm in. However, I spent the day catching up on my WWE wins/losses spreadsheet so I can release it on the blog next week. Also spent time playing Madden.

    ReplyDelete
  5. You doing anything with family for Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm playing KOF, reading War Cry (even if it's 20 pages a day because I'm lazy), studying Modern History.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I still play Madden 2010 for PS3. Franchise mode, baby!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah, I use 2011 because I have NCAA 11. It's screwed with my mind because I forget how some of these guys were on certain teams/still in the league at that time.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have 2010 NCAA too.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just gonna be me and my parents due so bad blood between my mother and my grandfather, I wish I was with my friends.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's fun to draft in players and see who ends up a bust and who surprises people.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Still got today and a half day tomorrow. Then no work for the rest of the year. I don't have Christmas plans so I'm sure I'll be bored by 3pm

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sorry to hear. Hopefully you and your parents have a good time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. At least I'm not alone.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah man. Enjoy that family time while you have it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Tebow ended up being the 9th pick of one of the drafts. Noel Devine is badass for me and was a 1st

    ReplyDelete
  17. Might turn out to be a okay night, I'm just not in a mood for celebration, just wanna go back to college.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I remember in Madden 07 making lots of trades to draft Adrian Petersen, but he ended up not panning out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. AJ Green and Julio Jones were both end of the second round picks. Riley Cooper was a top 20 pick though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:14 PM

    That's something not many people say.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hope so, even with the bad blood surrounding.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sideshow Bob episodes are so good.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Seriously, I miss that place. At least I had something to do.

    ReplyDelete
  24. All his Bart killing episodes are top notch.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kelsey Grammar did the voice, right?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh man, I finally clipped a particularly troubling toenail, and there's chicken on the way. Not a bad evening, overall.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Did Rey Mysterio even go to school? He had to be about 19 or 20 in this match. And was in WCW a year later. No wonder his body quit on him. He's probably had about 19,000 matches

    ReplyDelete
  28. '08 for PC (but with 2014 rosters and more realistic uniforms that I got off the internet). I take screenshots of the games & use them as my desktop slideshow.

    ReplyDelete
  29. He started when he was 12 as a mini.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lizzy Caplan: Hot or not?

    ReplyDelete
  31. He was 20 there and made his debut at 18. He worked such a crazy style for so long that its no wonder his knees are shot. Don't get why people hate on the guy, either. He revolutionized the light heavyweight style in America.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Watching 1998 RAW, Jim Ross still had a tendency to do the whole "This is great!" stuff, but at least when he did it it came off as more genuine and less fake. Maybe because Ross actually sounded like he was having a blast doing what he did.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I give it a 8.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I play Franchise for all 32 teams. I simulate half the season and play the rest. I am up to the current season now. I play in spurts.

    ReplyDelete
  35. People just hate on him now because it's time for him to retire. Also, his matches started to become full of unrealistic spots (619).

    ReplyDelete
  36. 1995 Rey Mysterio is *amazing* to watch. He didn't give even one shit about his body. He was just throwing himself everywhere. It's amazing he can even walk right now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Not especially. I mean, she's fine, nothing notable.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I watched some random WCW match a while back and it's amazing how fast he moved compared to his time in the WWE. Night and day

    ReplyDelete
  39. His knees are trying to change that.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I imagine that Rey in PWG having matches with Ricochet/ACH/Fox/Sydal, ***** potential.

    ReplyDelete
  41. He's the reason I got into WCW. His matches were always incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  42. YouTube a cage match between him and Juvi. It ends in a draw after they crotch themselves on top of the cage and end up splatting onto the mat. It's crazy.
    That match I linked is about ****3/4, IMO. Way ahead of its time too.

    ReplyDelete
  43. 1994-1997 Rey is the fucking man.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Dude! I think I just came thinking about that....

    ReplyDelete
  45. Better Simpsons villain: Mr.Burns or Sideshow Bob.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Same here. I was a huge cruiserweight mark.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 23, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    Probably about 500 with Psicosis alone.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really don't care for the lucha style one bit. Every single thing that defines it is not what I like about wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  49. His early WWE run was fantastic, without a doubt one of the best, if not, the best high flyer ever.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Generally, Lucha sucks but it does have some incredible matches. Atlantis vs. Villano III mask vs mask is *****. That had it all.

    ReplyDelete
  51. All ***1/2 or higher.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Some matches I get into, but most are just lots of dumb spots.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The only I really care is Rush, that's because he acts like a southern heel.

    ReplyDelete
  54. After last night I expect Big E to pin Stardust by raking a dump on his chest.

    Meanwhile, backstage, Dean Ambrose accidentally walks into a closed door, blinds himself, and Bray Wyatt covers for the pin.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Youtube Aero Star vs. Super Fly. Those two are insane. Fenix and Daga are awesome and Ultimo Guerrero is the most underappreciated luchador ever, IMO

    ReplyDelete
  56. He would also call something stupid if it didn't work (Kennel in the cell)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I take control of all 32 teams so I can control the draft & free agency & stuff myself. I spend 4 seasons with a team so I can play everyone else once, then switch to another division in the other conference and repeat. My most recent ones I've also taken to playing the best game in my teams bye week and all the playoffs too. I skip the pro bowl though because I nearly always put the teams in their old uniforms & I haven't found a way to get the helmets that I want to appear in that game.

    I usually play a lot during the season then don't touch it between late february and mid september.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I saw his mask vs mask match, amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Same. Never been my cup o' tea.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I was sad, but I'm listening to Zayn's theme now. Everything is awesome now.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I do the drafting, free agency and trades too. I usually play a week, then skip a week.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Dallas needs to trade the Stars name back to Minnesota and then come up with a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  63. How did the toenail clipping trigger chicken delivery?

    ReplyDelete
  64. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:25 PM

    Worlds Apart, the theme that cures depression.

    ReplyDelete
  65. She's 8ish to me. In that 'real world hot, but meh for celebrity' range.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I watched a few moments of the RAW main event between the MNF game last night and when I saw Ambrose pull out that candy cane kendo stick I immediately changed the channel.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Alright guys, do I go with Turkey Chili or Chicken noodle soup for dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  68. So, Adrien Neville will have a gimmick Mighty mouse-esque, where they will say he's small all the time. Another burial made by Dunn & Co.

    ReplyDelete
  69. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    I don't hate him, I just don't think he should be wrestling with those bad legs,

    ReplyDelete
  70. Chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Indeed. If it's with his dopey babyface cheering mug in the background, happiness is unavoidable

    ReplyDelete
  72. Seriously? Haha, I love how Dunn & Vince just intentionally sabotage NXT talents.

    ReplyDelete
  73. He's small but STRONG.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Homer Simpson has to be number 1; he constantly chokes his own kid and never gets arrested who have his kids taken away permamently

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm 30 minutes away from 12 days of vacation. Working for the State school system, fuck yeah

    ReplyDelete
  76. It was literally the Looney Tunes finish we'd been joking about since last week. Was only missing the Sister Abigail.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I still think it would be beautiful if NXT started pulling in Smackdown similar numbers.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Chili it is. Going to Panera and will place this order and be right back.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Really? A boy band episode?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Vince then would interfere.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Vince would just freak and screw with it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Book it. I think he's even smaller than Crash

    ReplyDelete
  83. Dean/Bray bombed with the crowd last night and at TLC. The feud has sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Teacher?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 23, 2014 at 5:31 PM

    Tommy Hall gave you his coupons?

    ReplyDelete
  86. The Bunny would be NXT Champion within a week. Oh wait.....

    ReplyDelete
  87. Bought a few ebooks and got them on a Black Friday deal.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh look, Nsync on the Simpsons. More unnecessary celebrity bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  89. It would be funny to see Vince screw with it and the Full Sail crowd just flat out revolt at everything.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 23, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    Jeopardy, mofo's.


    Silence!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Sort of expected when a fuckin' ROCKING CHAIR is made the focal point of the feud. We never even got a good explanation for why Bray screwed with the HIAC match with Ambrose and Rollins.

    ReplyDelete
  92. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    And that crowd looks like it would revolt.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I remember this one.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Yeah, college kids are very anti-corporate so they'd just go nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  95. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:33 PM

    I view them as a PG version of an ECW crowd,

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yup. That's the perfect analogy.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 23, 2014 at 5:34 PM

    There's actually a report out from some backstage sources that Kevin Dunn, realizing that his power will erode once Triple H takes over from Vince, has been intentionally sabotaging NXT talents on the way up in an undeclared 'cold war' of sorts against Triple H.

    ReplyDelete
  98. The Lazers.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Ah. I thought maybe it was a voodoo subscription service. Clip a toenail, cut a clump of hair, and this tall man in a tophat brings you a chicken and a box of long pins...

    ReplyDelete
  100. PWG crowds are the PG-13 version.

    ReplyDelete
  101. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:35 PM

    Makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Exactly. The feud has been garbage, much like the other feuds currently going on.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 23, 2014 at 5:35 PM

    Trade Stars back to Minnesota and become the Texas Lone Stars. Have a picture of Bill Pullman's face, with an alternate of Dark Helmet.

    ReplyDelete
  104. So I read that WWE has officially started a "No CM Punk" signs, shirts, or chants policy. http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/536767-wwe-cm-punk-sign-attire-policy


    Sure, WWE will sell the merchandise, but won't let you wear it to the shows. What the heck has happened to this company? Now they are telling their audience what they can and can't wear or write on a sign to take to a show that they are PAYING to go see?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Nothing screams more than fighting game final boss as Brock's theme.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yeah, isn't that old news? Makes perfect sense when you look at what has happened to some of the talents such as Emma and Paige. Of course, Dunn hates women too, so maybe that is the explanation.

    ReplyDelete
  107. PWG crowds are more entertaining than RAW.

    ReplyDelete
  108. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Everyone should chant for CM Punk during the entire show in protest.

    ReplyDelete
  109. So what are they going to do if you chant CM Punk? Throw you out? Good luck doing that in your smark cities where you are going to have thousands of people doing it.


    Crowds should just abandon the CM Punk chant anyway and just pick up a "Same old shit" or "This shit sucks" chant to express their boredom.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Lmfao. Such immaturity.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I still laugh Bad Influence shows up and they chant "fuck TNA".

    ReplyDelete
  112. Or just stop buying tickets.

    ReplyDelete
  113. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:38 PM

    Nah, it's fun to see Vince get upset at his own fanbase live.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Yeah, that's what I've done. No Network, no tickets, etc. Starve the beast.

    ReplyDelete
  115. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:39 PM

    Especially in 8 bit form.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Random theme that's grown on me: Dean Ambrose's. It really fits him perfectly, and works when I'm in a manic mood. Too bad he's a hardcore division jabrone now.

    ReplyDelete
  117. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Dean Ambrose, jobs to life.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Ambrose's is one of my favorite current themes.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I subbed to continue to watch the library. Not sure if I want to continue paying in January though. They honestly don't deserve the money.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Bo Dallas, Paige and Adam Rose have been named as those most directly affected by Kevin Dunn's politicking, though Emma would be another name that deserves mention.

    ReplyDelete
  121. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    When he was serious, it got me hyped.

    ReplyDelete
  122. http://www.wrestlecrap.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/vmc13.png

    ReplyDelete
  123. I love how how they chant "O' O' O' O'Reilly....AUTO PARTS." at Kyle O'Reilly.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Yeah, since they lack a lot of the old footage I don't already own, I figured I didn't need it. Not like the pay-per-views have been must see events.

    ReplyDelete
  125. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:42 PM

    Emma may have been an easier picking for Dunn after the robbery.

    ReplyDelete
  126. THREE AINT ENOUGH MAN I NEED FIVE

    ReplyDelete
  127. "I want Candace", when she's in Joey's corner.

    ReplyDelete
  128. It will be interesting to see what happens when the WWE are sued by fans who were turned away.
    Banned from a show for wearing their branded shirts you bought from them. I very much doubt a Judge will side with WWE here.

    ReplyDelete
  129. She dyed her hair purple. Bleh.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Turkey chili off a frisbee

    ReplyDelete
  131. One of the big reasons wrestling isn't going to have another boom is that they've become so disconnected from popular culture. The 1980s had the whole superman Hulk Hogan stuff with rock n' roll, while 1990s was tied in with youth rebellion. Not sure what the popular culture to tap into now is, but that's what the WWE has to exploit for a boom.

    ReplyDelete
  132. The Reality Era MAGGLE!

    ReplyDelete
  133. They're trying. Bellas speak to the vapid, talentless twit demographics

    ReplyDelete
  134. They had Grumpy Cat what more do you want?

    ReplyDelete
  135. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:44 PM

    It should be about Vines.

    ReplyDelete
  136. To their credit they have been trying with the twerking and the Twitter. It just so happens that pop culture kinda sucks right now.

    ReplyDelete
  137. That doesn't show 'em. Gotta buy CENA SUCKS shirts to get the point across.

    ReplyDelete
  138. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    Or Vince is always 5 years behind.

    ReplyDelete
  139. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    Because in reality, you don't get what you want,

    ReplyDelete
  140. Virgil's Gimmick TableDecember 23, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    This company is seriously dying a slow death. I don't even see it being around ten years from now.

    ReplyDelete
  141. IMO, the big glowing neon reason is because kayfabe is dead. Only the dumbest trash kids still believe.

    ReplyDelete
  142. That's fair. I think it's harder to find a popular culture because everything has become so damn corporate over the last two decades.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Maybe Dean Ambrose can grow a beard.....but just around his neck.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Yeah, they do need to sell it more like an athletic contest again.

    ReplyDelete
  145. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:47 PM

    Like how NXT is doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  146. The average fan doesn't want a goody two shoes as it's hero. They want an anti-hero like ironman, starlord, Walter white, or rick grimes.
    That's why fans liked the shield, cm punk and Daniel Bryan because they weren't traditional good guys.

    ReplyDelete
  147. True. In the 90's the rebelliousness was so palpable that it was an easy thing to tap into.

    Now? Whatever is happening doesn't translate. Clearly Twitter isn't the next Attitude Era.

    ReplyDelete
  148. WWE needs to reach those criminal fans too! She got some street cred!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Maybe he can grow a spine.

    ReplyDelete
  150. The Bo Dallas shit I don't understand. He appeared to be getting over and then he just loses a ton to R-Truth for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  151. CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK!

    ReplyDelete
  152. The 70's, the 80's the 90's these decades had completely different well Everything.


    It's like popular culture died in 1996 or so. Imagine your kids looking at a photo of you from 2004 - Today and being able to instantly place it like when we look at old pics of our parents.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Another thing I just thought of: so the company has a DRESS CODE for fans now? That's just really funny.

    ReplyDelete
  154. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    You either need to be a super cool anti hero, a sympathetic face, or both.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Yes. And it's one of the few things I agree with Cornette on with booking. Dangle something where we question if some part of this is real. Like the Punk promo. Because when it's a bunch of nothing now where no results matter, why should anyone care?

    ReplyDelete
  156. I think people can know wrestling is fake, but they still want to believe what they are watching is real. Just like a movie. You know what you are watching isn't real, but with the right storytelling you can become invested in the story as if it's real.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Well, enjoy your Christmas/NOT Christmas plans, or lack thereof, and I'll probably see ya'll Friday, unless something strange happens.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Yeah, they have no leg to stand on.


    It's like being kicked out of a sporting event because you're wearing the opposing teams jersey.


    With WWE"s crack legal team, some random fan from Kalamazoo,Michigan is going to end up owning the company by 2017.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Still hot.

    ReplyDelete
  160. You too man. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka, Happy Festivus!

    ReplyDelete
  161. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    That NXT crowd really gets invested, I've never heard a "Don't give up" chant at a wrestling show before, they truly made it feel real.

    He and Tony Stark will be the last 2 fighting.

    ReplyDelete
  168. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:54 PM

    Superman could get cheered then.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Leafs playing like they give a damn tonight. Hopefully they can sustain the momentum for the next two periods. Leafs have a bad habit of playing too loose after playing a good first period.

    ReplyDelete
  170. so the justice league then

    ReplyDelete
  171. If Bray is feuding with Undertaker at WrestleMania, I can't wait to see how they build that feud. Is the Undertaker going to burn down Wyatt's Bayou or something?

    ReplyDelete
  172. It's going to be Wrestle Crap for sure. Lightning bolts, holograms, exploding caskets, you name it.

    ReplyDelete
  173. revenge for making his half-brother into a corporate stooge

    ReplyDelete
  174. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    Since Dean already killed his chair, I don't see why not,

    ReplyDelete
  175. I just trade $100 bills with everybody.

    ReplyDelete
  176. same with me but it's gift cards

    ReplyDelete
  177. And lots of unintelligible promos, mostly by Wyatt. The Undertaker will show up twice. Once to just some weird promos about the Creatures of the Night and another to chokeslam Wyatt, probably at a contract signing.

    ReplyDelete
  178. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 23, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    The only way the feud could be saved is if they finally have Sister Abigail show up.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Went to Walmart to get a pump for my basketball. Was in line behind this old white lady and she told me to go ahead since I only had the one item. Then when I get to the register she tells the cashier to ring my stuff up with hers. That was pretty cool for her. Now I feel like I have to do something or someone. Stupid pay it forward.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Wyatt will summon the Undertaker's spirit.

    ReplyDelete
  181. So you spend money on something like money, but not as good. Brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  182. needs more urn

    ReplyDelete
  183. And have it be Michelle McCool.

    ReplyDelete
  184. That is such an awful idea that I can DEFINITELY see them doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Grab your phone book and select an address at random. Send a pizza there with a note saying "Merry Christmas".
