Tuesday Evening Thread

Figured we needed a thread for the evening.

The WWE 2014 TV year wraps up tonight with Main Event.

Georgia-Louisville and Maryland-Stanford are the evening's bowl games.

Assorted NBA and NHL action is also on tap.

  1. Nothing like stressful deadlines to accelerate the graying process before you're 30

  2. You can't make this stuff up.

    I'm almost rooting for this to happen, because at this point, you really DO have to start wondering whether that city is just plain cursed.

  3. The Rock summed it up best: "No wonder Jim Thome left! LeBron James, don't get drafted by Cleveland!"

    ReplyDelete
  4. The heat, the freaking heat!

    ReplyDelete
  5. "Whether YA like it or YA don't it's the best thing going to gray!"

  7. Know what sounds great for dinner tonight? A goddamn burrito..

    ReplyDelete
  8. Embrace it. You can be a sophisticated Silver Fox.

    ReplyDelete
  9. By the way, 27 people have cast ballots so far, so that's a pretty decent participation rate.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Since you're running Id like to change my favorite poster to Mr. Satan #1 and then just move 1 to 2 and 2 to 3. I believe 1 was parallax and 2 was Bayless.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Man, if he leaves, his image will NEVER recover.

    ReplyDelete
  12. About a year ago my favorite burrito place closed down and I still haven't found a new place close to how good the old one was. Burritos were MASSIVE. Chicken Cabo Burrito with Guacamole. Rest soundly sweet burrito treat.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It'll be fine when he's winning championships somewhere. His image is never going to get to where it was before he left the first time. He only needs to be concerned with winning. Going back to Cleveland was probably the worst career choice he ever made.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Surfing youtube and found old conan clips. Amy poehler as andy richter's sister makes me laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Classic stuff. I used to love Conan as a teen. It was must see TV.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, I remember staying up late during high school and watching it on my antenna TV that got like 4 channels

    ReplyDelete
  17. It felt so edgy and new and fun. Pimp bot 5000. The masterbating bear. The banter between Conan and Andy. Conan and Max. It was awesome. Now I don't particularly care for the show at all. I've seen it live and it was very meh. Lost all that magic of my youth. Love the Sompsons episodes Conan was a part of as well. Conan will always be a legend to me, but I don't need to ever see his show again.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My parents don't have league pass, and I just have the one on my tv. How the fuck can I watch Portland vs Toronto? da fuck

    ReplyDelete
  19. When it was over, I turned into Kayak Guy. THERES NO REASON TO LIVE!!! WHERES MY KAYAK?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Are you asking us for advice on how to watch the Portland/Toronto game or are you confused that you are able to watch it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Had one yesterday, getting one tomorrow. There's never a time where I'm like "nah, no burrito for me" if offered

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can't believe nba tv isn't doing a double header. ANyone going to watch this cavs game.

    ReplyDelete
  23. All this AND the Walker Texas Ranger Lever

    ReplyDelete
  24. I feel like I'm on my way to being Tommy Lee Jones, looking 67 when Im 47 like in The Fugitive

    ReplyDelete
  25. How long do you reckon Harbaugh stays at Michigan and away from the NFL? Hard to imagine him leaving his dream job but it also seems equally hard to imagine him staying away from the pros for too long.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've gotta say my favorite is Conan at the 19th century baseball reenactment.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Call me crazy, but I don't love Chipotle burritos. Not nearly grimey enough and I don't care for the rice filler. I've only had them once about 10 years ago, but I made up my mind the. To never try them again.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Absolutely! I forgot about that one! Hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'll be watching Bulls vs Nets. Jimmy Buckets gonna hurt em.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Triumph at the Star Wars premiere for me

    ReplyDelete
  31. I loved that segment.

    This one's for you Nell!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think Chipotle sucks. Hate the rice and I agree with "not grimey enough" it's all too neat. The ingredients are all organized and whatever and when I bite into it and I can always taste the separation in the ingredients. They don't come together into one piece of heaven.

    A great burrito just needs to mesh together. The rice, the beans, the meat, the tortilla itself all in a perfect union.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I DIDN'T KILL MY WIFE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm pissed its not on NBA TV. And i'm pissed my tv league pass doesn't just translate over to the internet. I don't want to watch some wonky stream of it

    ReplyDelete
  35. I had it yesterday, it's fine as a spot start burrito, but there a taco truck stationed near my work every Wed that's awesome and all the bullpen editors go down there at noon

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd say at least 5 years. If he wins a national title there then I can see him going back to the NFL. He may just stay there the rest of his career, though.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bam bam should be in the hall of fame.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Totally agree with everything you said.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Everyone forgets he main evented a WrestleMania.

    ReplyDelete
  40. But who inducts him and who accepts on his behalf?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Does he have any kids?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lawrence Taylor!....Well, that whole sex sting thing may make that a bad idea....

    ReplyDelete
  43. Seems to burn out his teams after four years so I'll say four, but he'll leave them a ten win squad

    ReplyDelete
  44. Quitting smoking is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd love a cracked out LT inducting a guy when he doesn't even probably remember the match. Just slurring his words sounding consist and sad.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I imagine its as hard as telling me to quit gaming or masturbating, or masturbating while I game

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't care!

    *dives*

    MY GLASSES!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's amazing how he's gone from one of the worst shooting perimeter guys in the game to one of the best in just one offseason. He's gonna be the East's version of Kawhi Leonard

    ReplyDelete
  49. Buzzfeed has a nice top 15 matches of WWE 2014, discuss. http://www.buzzfeed.com/norbertobriceno/thisisawesome#.bwRgZJAxP

    ReplyDelete
  50. Driving drunk through a border patrol check point without getting pulled over was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Took a lot of focus.

    ReplyDelete
  51. You're a champ.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Is Cold Turkey the best way to quit? The other options seem way too expensive for such a marginal success rate.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Cold Turkey is the only way to go. I did it 9 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  54. How long did you smoke (years and packs)?

    ReplyDelete
  55. He turned down the contract offer in the off season and really dedicated himself. No tv or Internet all off season. Just training. It's remarkabke what he's done. He's a joy to watch out there. JBG! JIMMY BUCKETS! The G is for GET MORE BUCKETS!!!

    I love Stacey King calling Bulls games.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Giantbomb game of the year podcast day five was a great listen.

    ReplyDelete
  57. One of my favourite phrases is "Fuck this, I'm getting a burrito."

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's still weird to me that Sly Stallone inducted Hogan.

    ReplyDelete
  59. From 16-24. A few packs a week. The last year or so I was down to a few cigarettes a day

    ReplyDelete
  60. I smoked on and off from 13 to 27. Never got up to a pack a day or anything, but I would have my bad weekends and go through a couple. I quit cold turkey out of spite. I was told I couldnt. I had already been thinking of quitting and that put me over the edge. That being said IC im at a party and people are smoking I will bum the occasional smoke, but I never buy my own packs and I never just smoke at home or in the car or alone.

    ReplyDelete
  61. my friend who is WWE crazy - action figures, gots the network, thousands of dvds - wrote the following on FB : "Well after tonight I can officially say after 20+ years of watching I am now a FORMER WWE fan. Might still relive some of the glory days on the network but otherwise I'm done. ‪#‎WWESucks‬" i think something happened i dont know about

    ReplyDelete
  62. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonDecember 30, 2014 at 5:54 PM

    Oomph. There's nowhere decent to get Mexican where I live , so I never developed the affinity for it. Now Chinese on the other hand? 24/7, 365

    ReplyDelete
  63. Patches. They cost less per day than actually buying a pack a day. I'll be using them starting Jan 1. I quit for three years once and had success with them.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Maybe he was upset Daniel Bryan didn't retire.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Probably upset with the Usos title win. I wasn't happy about it either.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Rocky 3 man! Rocky 3.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 30, 2014 at 5:56 PM

    Done that, it was easy.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I have never met anyone that was successful through any other means.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Good for him. If only more of us would do that, maybe things would change.

    ReplyDelete
  70. How the heck did Suh's suspension get overturned? So you can stomp on a guys legs and not get suspended, but you smoke weed and you're out 10 games?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Depends on what you are quitting.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Well hey, if we don't go to shows, buy merchandise, or get the Network, this company will be hurting enough.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Watching the first X Men on some movie channel and my family is making so much noise in the background, Holy shit. Think I'm gonna watch Summerslam 2012 later on when the coast is clear. I went to the show live but have never actually seen the broadcast.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Gary Bettman now does disciplinary actions for the NFL in his spare time, it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  75. The Torito/Hornswoggle match is even more galling in retrospect, not just because of how many guys were taking career-threatening bumps for a comedy match, but also for poor Drew McIntyre, who was completely busting his ass and taking a lot of unnecessary risks, only to wind up with a pink slip days later. Life really isn't fair sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Completely ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's all about $$$ and ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Apparently domestic abuse was ok at one point as well.

    ReplyDelete
  79. You wouldn't believe the weird looks me and my brother got driving through the Hood blaring the Sherlock theme song.

    ReplyDelete
  80. They're telling stories!

    ReplyDelete
  81. My uncle swears by some sort of therapy where they shot lasers up his nose. He hasn't smoked in like ten years. I've never heard of anyone else doing this.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Nothing beats blaring random music in places or situations where it doesn't apply.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I do agree, but as a hardcore Lion fan I'm overjoyed

    ReplyDelete
  84. In years gone by, I could tell you the location and main event for the big five. Now, I'm clueless. I'm guessing it was in Los Angeles.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Mass murder/suicide in Edmonton. Nine dead, 2 of them children. Damn.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Goodell is trolling Jerry Jones.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Cowboys still gonna roll them. Typical Lions. Good gravy did they look like shit vs the Bears.

    ReplyDelete
  88. was it in a gun-free zone?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Lasers are the answer to pretty much everything!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I'm expecting a loss, but of course I want the best DT in football on the field for us, especially against that offense

    ReplyDelete
  91. One last time.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Oh man. I haven't had Chinese in forever. Now I know what will be tomorrow's dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love blasting The Bloodhound Gang in bad neighbourhoods. Or playing them on the jukebox in the bar.

    ReplyDelete
  94. It was very enjoyable to watch. Yea it was a comedy match but it was by far the best comedy segment WWE had done since Team Hell No broke up. And Torito and Hornswoggle have something decent to sure to their grand kids someday. At least Drew is the DGUSA champion, I bet he'll go to NJPW in time and do fine for himself.

    ReplyDelete
  95. He couldn't bear to see Ryback humanized?

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm watching this week's ROH TV, Kendrick vs Cole and Tag Wars 2014...how does this show get overlooked so often in the best wrestling show discussion?

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm empathetic with your stress at your job that nearly all of us would kill to have.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I almost never eat Chinese food, but it's a New Year's Eve tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  99. "Sometimes we would use Vince's office." -Sunny in regards to her and Shawn.


    Jesus Christ, WWE in the '90s was a fucking circus.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:18 PM

    So they're running Charlotte vs Sasha Banks on Main Event.


    Wanna bet that it won't be as good?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 30, 2014 at 6:19 PM

    Sounds like a fun place to work.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Kendrick is a slacker.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I still remember a group of guys driving down South Street and blasting the Chicken Dance.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:19 PM

    What would it have been like to be Vince's errand boy or gopher, and running into all sorts of situations backstage.

    ReplyDelete
  105. 14 years 2 packs a day. Cold turkey and never looked back.

    ReplyDelete
  106. People love to hate ROH. Is it available online? I know I don't get it on TV where I am.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Five minutes tops, and Charlotte wrestles the match likes she's Ric Flair.

    ReplyDelete
  108. But it's Tammy, so it's a lie. :(

    ReplyDelete
  109. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:21 PM

    My step-kid likes to blast hip hop when I'm driving him around. So when we pull up to a light, and that shit is loud, people look over and see the whitest of whiteys behind the wheel.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    You had the five minutes right.

    ReplyDelete
  111. So basically, according to Titan Sinking, Chris Candido was the 90's version of John Morrison in regards to his relationships.

    ReplyDelete
  112. That's not very gangsta.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Sunny gave her ass to everyone, she gave it to Ahmed for some cocaine once.

    ReplyDelete
  114. The idiots at he Georgia-Louisville game are analysing Jim Harbaugh's intro speech at Michigan, and all seem to be in agreement that it's a good thing he didn't give his opponents any bulletin board material. Yeah, wouldn't want him to say something that'd have next years big 10 prospects fired up for the next 9 months.

    ReplyDelete
  115. john morrison wow i remember him. he was fun

    ReplyDelete
  116. Hmm. Two guys that I never cared for much.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Seems worse than jomo's situation.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:24 PM

    I'm the anti-gangsta. I think it's all garbage now. Luckily for me, when it's playing, I can tune it out.

    ReplyDelete
  119. If you had ended up in a flaming wreckage, I wouldn't have felt bad. In fact, I would laugh. No offense, but I put drunk drivers in the same category as rapists and child molesters.

    ReplyDelete
  120. That's by far my favorite Sunny story, if true.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 30, 2014 at 6:25 PM

    I think more people hooked up with Sunny than did Melina, but from the rumors, Sunny wasn't very discerning...

    ReplyDelete
  122. It is. If you sign up as a Ringside Member ($7.50/mo) you get access to the newest episode, the entire archive and a bunch of old shows. But you can also watch the last week's episode for free. Subscribed this month and have been poking around, they put some fantastic matches on TV.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Melina was with Kendrick, London and Batista. Sunny got a taste of 90 percent of the locker room.

    ReplyDelete
  124. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 30, 2014 at 6:26 PM

    I really doubt that one is true.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Lethal/ACH I & II.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Ehhhh. I won't give WWE my 9.99. I'm not ready to give ROB 7.50.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Bam Bam and Miz have a lot in common.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Sunny only drank alcohol. Nothing else. She was a good girl. Really.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Yes! First two matches that came to mind.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I'm more convinced than ever that King is the problem, JBL/Cole/Booker are much better on Main Event

    ReplyDelete
  131. I put pension stealing white collar crooks in the same bracket as the dudes you just mentioned.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Too bad about Candido, really. Dying and all.

    ReplyDelete
  133. So when Sunny got slopped by the Godwinns, there was a lot of the locker room in there.

    ReplyDelete
  134. AJ/ O'reilly.


    ROH had a decent just needs to pick a better guy as a world champ.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I just have a really hard time not hating Cole.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Why is everybody tripping about him not calling OSU and MSU out and going off?? They aren't doing anything impactful til atleast 3 yrs from now

    ReplyDelete
  137. Makes sense, but if you're ever interested, even if you just checkout the free episode you're bound to see something good.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Hey, the Kliq was crapping in gym bags before Randy Orton!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Probably just because it's Main Event and nobody cares.

    ReplyDelete
  140. They also invaded funerals.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:29 PM

    So is New Year's Eve a big time deal for anyone here? I can't remember the last time I went anywhere on New Year's. Taking your old calendar and replacing it with a new calendar seems to make people think that it solves all your problems.

    ReplyDelete
  142. He was on Joey Ryan's Youtube show, total douchebag. Good for Batista

    ReplyDelete
  143. My grandparents, great Aunt, sister, and nephews are coming over tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  144. And he was in such good shape!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I always partied pretty well pre-kid. Now it's Chinese food, a motion picture, and in bed by 10 after 12.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Batista is also a douche, so it's not like he's a angel.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 30, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    WWE commercial on Hulu+ "I'm not a wrestling fan, I'm a WWE fan."


    Sounds about right.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    "A motion picture" -Mister E Mahn circa 1923.


    Cracks me up.

    ReplyDelete
  149. That feel when you find an ideal job listing but the shitty website crashes every time you submit an application.

    ReplyDelete
  150. New Years is the mrs and I'd anniversary. 8 years this year. Time flies.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Because being "classy" is the big thing nowadays. Can't be a real winner unless you're CLASSY and you act like you've been there before.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Big deal for me, usually my family does a big barbecue.

    ReplyDelete
  153. No. Driving around to parties or whatever late at night with lots of people drinking, I'd rather not.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I'm going out for the first time ever on New Year's, then again, I just turned 21.

    ReplyDelete
  155. o yea its rite up there with st. patrick's day and christmas and thanksgiving and the superbowl with great drinkin nights :)

    ReplyDelete
  156. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:32 PM

    Well then, you have a good reason.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 30, 2014 at 6:32 PM

    I'm in bed by 12 after 10... GF wanted to invite people over for tomorrow night, but it doesn't look like anyone is taking the bait for some floutas. I can be in bed early again.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I haven't gone out for New Year's Eve in over a decade. Tomorrow is a normal work day, normal dinner, then the Simpsons marathon through New Year's night. No big whoop.

    ReplyDelete
  159. According to Ryback and "The Secret", that is the Universe telling you not to apply.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Possible Cult-related?

    ReplyDelete
  161. I keep hearing about that one, will have to check it out. Cole vs Hero was pretty solid also.

    Yeah, I still don't get why they put the belt back on Briscoe. If the HAD to get it off Elgin, they should have just gone with Ciampa.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Jeez, Vince, usually people hire somebody to write their ad copy for them.

    ReplyDelete
  163. A friend invited me to a party at her place, but I have to work early New Year's Day.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I don't even live in the hood, but I'd give you a weird look too. It's not common you hear the Sherlock theme everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  165. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 30, 2014 at 6:33 PM

    Last time I went out was two years ago and I got really drunk and wandered around downtown Cleveland for three hours lost because I didn't have my wits. Still get scared about that night. Tomorrow I'll be watching old PPVs on the network with a buddy while slugging Miller Lites.

    ReplyDelete
  166. and the best part is huggin and kissin all the ladies @ midnight

  167. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:34 PM

    I hate that I have a one-day holiday in the middle of a work week. Back to work on Friday after one day off.

    ReplyDelete
  168. The WWE Universe is not the job-applying type, typically.

    ReplyDelete
  169. They clearly don't know what to do with Tommaso after he lost the TV title.

    ReplyDelete
  170. A regular Cactus Jack.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Because you can't prove he meant to step on Rodgers' legs. Before you bring up his reputation, that's irrelevant here.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Except Bret, allegedly. But I think if Bret nailed Sunny he would've said so in his book.

    ReplyDelete
  173. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 30, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    Hahahahah, pretty good sir.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    I'll probably spend it watching a best of 2014 on the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Reminds me when I was looking for a job, and knowing which ones were likely filler after working at the local newspaper, which is like 90%. Ah, life in Buffalo.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Wrestlers were crapping in bags before any of us were born!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Nah. It doesn't paint him in a positive enough light.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Yikes. We just closed for the Friday. It's a day off at no cost in vaca days.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:36 PM

    I don't know how you do it. I haven't had a drop to drink since 2001 after bender that featured a dozen screwdrivers.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Oh, and bowl games. Can't forget those.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I went cold turkey for about a year, but now that I'm going to social gatherings more, I'm getting the urge to at least pick it up socially.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Congrats on the big green egg... those are no joke.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:37 PM

    The State of Texas don't play like that.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 30, 2014 at 6:37 PM

    Look at this playa!

    ReplyDelete
  185. Which sucks because he won that title like Ultimate Warrior squashing the Honkytonk Man. He looked like the next world champ but lost momentum once Lethal nabbed the TV title. How do you get lost in the shuffle when there are so few cards in the deck?

    ReplyDelete
  186. Candido honestly believed that Davey Boy never cheated on Diana, because she knew a hold that was really painful and she used it on him once.


    So those broomsticks just magically appeared in her bum, and those drinks just roofied themselves.

    ReplyDelete
