    Positive: Brock = ratings.
    Negative: The Authority was on at the beginning and at the end. So, take that for what it is.

    A segment of people stopped watching after Owens punked him out. Obviously, those viewers were disgusted with those happenings.

  4. Damning stat: JR Smith, Delly, Shumpert, and James Jones combined for 0/21 when LeBron was off the floor in the finals.

  12. So the key to decent ratings: day after PPV + Lesnar.

    Also, I had to cut out early during a great discussion on the Warriors. I maintain that health is the only thing that could derail them from a repeat.

  15. I think ratings went up because they FINALLY have two strong, main event heels in Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins.


    I do wish they would quit rushing into stuff though. No reason for Owens to get pinned by Cena. And it's even stupider to rush into Seth/Brock when there are other reasonable challengers for Seth to deal with.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 17, 2015 at 8:19 AM

    Which two albums so that I can judge if you have poor taste or not?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Usually I got away with responding like this:
    "Why hasn't it been done yet?"
    "Because I'm on the phone giving you a status report instead of working on it".

    That usually shuts 'em up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. David Byrne and Bran Eno's "Everything that Happens will Happen Today" and Ulver's "Perdition City."

    ReplyDelete
  19. JR made a good point on his podcast. If Owens beats Cena again, then the spotlight is on Cena getting beat twice in a row. Doing what they did, and more importantly executing the post-match so well, puts the heat back on Owens.

  21. I've used a variation of that before

    "When will it be fixed?"

    "It depends on how many more times I have to stop and explain when it will be fixed"

    In this case I went with "No. Just keep using it the same way you have been for the last two years and I will let you know when it is done."

    This week can't end quickly enough.

  22. That album is fantastic. besides having really good songs, it's mixed REALLY well and is a joy with a decent pair of headphones.

  23. Even unannounced he pops a rating! Well, not the hour he appears in, but who needs facts.

  24. Nope. Owens was BURIED! #CENAWINSLOL /smark

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I don't mind that Cena won the rematch - I think it's dumb it happened 2 weeks later. Could have gotten MONTHS of Cena trying to goad Owens into the rematch. You have 3 hours to kill every Monday, why burn through your hottest angle like that?

    ReplyDelete
  26. When they zoomed in on Cena's face though after he couldn't pin him during the match, I thought they were going to go for that Storm/Rood dynamic where Cena begrudgingly has to attempt to cheat to win. That might have been interesting too. I think I would've had them brawl outside to a double countout but it's not like this booking is the worst decision they've made, it was alright I think.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Worth mentioning (*small SPOILER*) that Cena wasn't on Smackdown either. So he'll have sold the apron powerbomb for at least a week. Credit where it's due.

  28. Keep being positive like this and you are going to be exiled.

    Some guy supposedly found a deep-fried rat in his KFC. As a guy who had a brother who worked in a KFC, they bread the chicken in store. There is no way someone breaded a damn rat and then served it.

  43. Joey Jo-Jo Junior ShabbadooJune 17, 2015 at 8:32 AM

    I still confused about why HHH and Steph seem to hate Rollins now. I know that the "I did it all by myself" line was supposed to be the impetus for them bringing Brock back, but even with suspension of disbelief it's hard to buy into the notion that they put this plan in motion in less than three hours. Which means it had to be in the works before Seth's promo, which in turn leads us back to why.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He should complain that the other stuff that's being served might not be chicken.

    Side note - hit an all-you-can-eat KFC buffet 2x in my lifetime. Regretted both times.

I have zero connection to the department where he would work and sending in his resume himself would have the same force and effect of me sending it in.

  121. Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the sons of Mike Rotundo, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Seth Rollins, destined to wear the World Heavyweight Title of WWE upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high ratings!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZY2mRG5mzg

    ReplyDelete
  122. "The competitors in the match start out as "ineligible" to win. In order to become "eligible", a wrestler must score a pinfall or submission on an opponent. The opponent who submits or is pinned is forced to spend two minutes in the "penalty box" cage. More than one wrestler can be in the cage. This often results in wrestlers fighting inside the cage or forming some sort of alliance.

    Once "eligible", the wrestler may win the match by retrieving the belt and hanging it on the hook suspended above the ring with the aid of the ladders. A TNA official maintains possession of the belt and circles the ring, staying out of the action as much as possible. When a wrestler wishes to hang the belt, he must retrieve it from the official. Once the belt is in play, any other wrestler who is eligible may attempt to steal the belt and hang it. Once the belt has been dropped and no wrestler is attempting to hang it, a referee returns the belt to the official."



    If it takes 2 paragraphs to explain how your match works, it will probably suck.

  126. Here's what you need to know:
    - The bullpen is bad.
    - Buttley and Howard are terribawful (not to mention Carlos Ruiz, who is so bad he's the worst kind of invisible).
    - Pitching is atrocious. Let's get nine people here and we could field a better starting rotation.
    - Dom Brown is untradeable. Whereas before it was because he was awesome, it's now because he's so NOT awesome.

    And the really bad thing? Philly media is ignoring that 1) there's a huge ownership battle brewing, 2) the team's attendance is the lowest it's been in decades, and 3) a lame-duck GM is still in charge, making big decisions when it's almost set in stone he won't be back next year.

    I'll say it again - SO glad I got out of Philly.

    He'd probably become the new ultra-dominant U.S. Champion, leading to someone finally derailing him at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas (Sami Zayn ladder match, anyone? Anyone?)

    hence signing Joe and supposedly reaching out to AJ i guess. Also they could definitely do a Balor/Cesaro tour given Kidd is out.

  141. They made awful decisions when they didn't have to. All of their really stupid blunders came after they won the Series in 08. Is Pat Gillick leaving an organization a curse? The Jays, Orioles, and Phillies have all run into trouble after he left.

    I think Gillick works for "right now" rather than the future. That's why the teams are a mess after he leaves. He does not have a mindset to set a team up for down the road.

  143. Follow Up To Earlier IT Gripe:



    I have now finished the user request. How do you think I will handle this:


    A) Promptly let him know it is finished and consider the matter closed


    B) Tell him nothing. Wait for him to test it again and think the issue fixed itself


    C) Wait until it has been 2 weeks and 1 day since the original request to tell him it is done to punish him for complaining earlier

  147. No, the problem is 100% Ruin Tomorrow, Jr. He traded away prospects for guys who could win now, traded away good players for bad (one trade left an opening for a PTBNL, and that guys was one of the Phils top prospects, who was left unprotected because Amaro is a boob) and signed Ryan Howard to a $1 billion contract that the Phils will have to eat about 95% of if they even want to begin talking about trading him.

    He is terribawful.

  153. A nice sign on your office and a pre-recorded voice mail message would be my play, along with a "Did You Know: the money in your paycheck does not expire if you don't blow all of it by the next payday!"

  154. Seriously, what does James Jones have on LeBron to stay on his teams?

  166. You have to lower expectations for shitty players like them. Its not against the norm that they stunk.

    Before we married, I gave Mrs. Stranger my Red Sox jersey to wear to bed. Needless to say, there was something about the team lettering on the front suddenly appearing in 3-D and the hem ending at the hips that just told me to let her keep it.


    Mrs. Stranger is an attractive lady.

    had a date all set up last week w the girl I've been talking to off and on for a few days online, confirm the date 48 hours later, then the night before I get some BS "sorry I have a last minute meeting scheduled with the CEO and need to work late to prepare, let's do next week." Then I see pics of her camping on facebook. Then see she dematches me on Tinder.


    Bottom line--girls are crazy and dont know what the fuck they want.

  193. They held onto their big guns and WS heroes for too long. It would be like if Hogan got a title run right now because of what he did in the 80s. Also, FWIW Frenchy was down in the minors working to be a reliever so it's not the same as if the Yankees sent out A-Rod to pitch

  194. Shhh. Don't give creative any ideas.

  195. They honestly billed Sid as being from "Wherever he darn well pleases." That's either awesome or really stupid.
