BOD Tuesday Night Thread

NBA has Houston-Dallas at 8:00, (Rockets lead 3-1), and the playoff series starts all over again with the Spurs and Clippers tied 2-2 in LA at 10:30. Both games are on TNT.

NHL is off... there's some good TV on, I'm sure. Talk about whatever.

  5. I'm going to watch it. At least, I'm going to start watching it. If it's terrible or I get too tired, I won't stick it out til the end.

  8. How long is KOTR tonight? 1 hour?

  9. No network and no stream, no seeing the second reign of King Sheamus for me. Waaaah.

  10. Lawler's got a mic, but this would be a thousand times cooler if he verbally destroyed everyone on his way to the ring just like the old days

    ReplyDelete
  11. The Orioles playing to an empty ballpark is going to be so weird. Are they going to bother with things like the National Anthem, 7th Inning stretch, Scoreboard stuff. They can still do instant replay, right? So if someone hits a walk-off grand slam, it will be met with...silence? Weird.

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is a waste unless Lawler cracks the winner over the head with something.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's going to be the most interesting game played in a long time, can't wait

    As long as we're not discussing heavy periods and shit. These chicks I work with just have the most disgusting conversations, and it's not just them, but all broads.

  15. Now my new piano teacher isn't here either? Seriously what the fuck I'm having terrible luck with this

    ReplyDelete
  16. Did they tape this after Raw last night? Is it part of the Smackdown taping? It probably doesn't matter. Also I think I'm a minute or two behind. That probably doesn't matter too much either.

    Getting slaughtered this week in fantasy baseball. This guy I'm facing has one of those rosters where it combined it doesn't seem like much, but they're all apparently being successful all at the same time.

    Has your piano teacher ever showed up? You are paying someone else to teach yourself piano.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is the second one because the last one never showed up!!

    What the hell man I just want to learn to play two sonG's for my wedding why is this so hard

  20. Just turned on King of the Ring. I love Neville, but he could REALLY use someone to talk for him.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's live. Part of the SD taping.

  22. I like the graphics for the bracket.

  24. So... The TNA tag titles get dropped because of a broken leg. Hatdys win the tag title tournament. Jeff Hardy breaks his leg while dirt biking.

  25. Is there any way that this doesn't end up with Neville, Barrett, and then Barrett again winning?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hope Neville wins

  27. Adam "Colorado" CurryApril 28, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    Supposedly it's the first game ever in the big 4 U.S. sports to do the empty arena match thing. I want to say that's not right, but until I can come up with something specific to dispute it I'll accept it.

    And if you're gonna play anyway, even with no fans, why not start the first game at noon and do an empty arena match double header? There's now 2 games that have to be made up.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's just sad how predictable they made this tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  35. They showed footage of Harley Race winning in the video packeage to start off. So Yes. (They didn't show footage of Mabel or Billy Gunn)

    ReplyDelete
  36. The King of the Ring meant so much more when the winner had to win 3 matches in one night. I wish they'd bring that back. It might be too hard to convince the runner up to wrestler three matches in one night just to lose though.

    Yeah, we do the same thing, but us gentlemen do it when they're not in earshot. Not because we have more class or anything, but they freak out when WE say something gross in front of THEM.

    He's just SO good. And they can do so much with him. Tag team, midcard champion, ultimate underdog, jobber.


    I mean, I'm hoping it's not the latter, but right now, there's virtually nothing you can't do with a guy like Neville. Personally, I'd love to see him in a big guy/little guy tag team. Those are always some of my favorite teams.

    At least the match was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  63. It's one of my few real passions outside of work, I love live baseball and I love road-tripping, going to stadiums gives me an excuse to see places I never otherwise would...like Oakland lol

  64. I get the feeling the stream I found is waaaaaay behind. Ziggler just came out.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Rorschach's JournalApril 28, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    I was wondering about that....but the "slack jawed faggots" line would sound better coming from someone like Brock, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think I'm watching the same stream. That match had potential too.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Is tonight's anything arrow centric? Won't be able to watch tonight but not sure I can sneak it in before arrow tomorrow

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hardway blood, fella!

  69. The next time Ziggler faces Ryback, the audience should do dueling Goldberg-Billy Gunn chants.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Adam "Colorado" CurryApril 28, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    They should do Floyd-Pac under Hard Hits rules like in the EA boxing. I would pay $100 for that shit.

  71. "Sorry buddy"

    ReplyDelete
  72. Most embarrassing night of Zigglers life? He got shit dumped on him when he was in the spirit squad. Hell, he was in the spirit squad!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Match was fine right up until the finish. They need to just give Neville and Sheamus 15 minutes at a PPV.

    ReplyDelete
  74. How much more badass would Predator have been if JCVD stuck with the role.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Ziggler showing off some of his amateur skills there.. He made sure to stay on top and show a little dominance in that scuffle

    ReplyDelete
  76. And busted Sheamus open hardway, it looks like.

    ReplyDelete
  77. How come Ziggler dresses like Rude Dog now?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Awesome, Sheamus wiped the blood on his chest like Lesnar used to do. He's gonna get fined for that.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hey, Ziggler needed something back after the facerub AND looking dumber than Sheamus on Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Which is fucking lame. That's a primo improv move that makes him look good.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Ya know, Ziggler with an edge could work. That was a very effective segment. Possibly better than anything he's done in the last couple of months

    ReplyDelete
  82. Rorschach's JournalApril 28, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Me too. Which big guy would you put him with though?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Serious Ziggler works, sure.

    ReplyDelete
  84. If it's just a distraction finish, it's fucking lame. Ziggler coming out afterwards for the pull-apart redeemed the whole deal.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oof, nice eye Sheamus.

  86. Big show, obviously.

    Barrett fits.

    I still keep my idea for a SurSer tournament.


    16 guys wrestle in classic elimination, once it reaches the final 4 instead of making the same old shit, do a fatal 4 way ELIMINATION match opening the show, the winner gets a shot against the champion at main event.

    ReplyDelete
  129. R-Truth does not feel like doing the entire song.

    ReplyDelete
  130. So at least there's ZERO chance R-Truth gets any further in the tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Speak Roman...?

    ReplyDelete
  132. Does that mean Barrett's winning overall because of 50/50 booking?

    And you can leave Neville in to get beat down, hot tag to Ryback and Ryback kills the heels, Neville comes back in and hits the combined moonsault\SSP\whatever the fuck the Red Arrow is.

    Bret Hart

    Booker T

    List of wrestlers who did not benefit
    Viscera
    Savio Vega
    Billy Gunn
    Ken Shamrock
    William Regal
    Edge (He did not actually benefit from it, he faded into the midcard during the Invasion, and his push came later)
    Sheamus (didn't really do much that he couldn't have accomplished without it)
