NFL Picks Week 7 (With more ramblings!)

Some quick thoughts as I ponder where the hell all this rain was in June/July/August:

  • Near disaster for me as I write this on Saturday morning: ran out of coffee and didn’t have enough for the full pot, so I supplemented with about 30% decaf Tim Horton’s. My wife will never know this since she never reads this blog.
  • Getting Tim Horton’s on Amazon has been an adventure at times in the last couple of years. They clearly don’t make enough to meet the demand because they run out at least six times a year (and that’s only when I check). Sometimes they jack up the price to a crazy level ($27 for a 32 oz can?) so I won’t buy, and other times it’s very low. Then Amazon starts this “Prime Pantry” stuff that I don’t understand much other than I have to buy a ton of stuff to fit in a big box which I will then be charged $5.99 for, even though Prime is free 2 day shipping. #1stworldproblems

Jobbers, huzzah!

It’s been a while since I’ve gone back in time for a review and today I randomly chose something that came up as a suggestion on YouTube: WWF All Star Wrestling from August 31, 1985. All Star was the B-show of the time, the forerunner to Wrestling Challenge. But we get the team of Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse Ventura on commentary so I’m sold immediately. This week in action are Paul Orndorff, Terry Funk, and Randy Savage. Oooh la and la. Continue reading WWF All Star Wrestling 08/31/1985

NFL Picks: Week 6 (With bonus ramblings!)

"It's a two party system!"
“It’s a two party system!”

A few thoughts before NFL picks:

  • Apologies for the lack of posts lately. This blog is at something of a crossroads as it nears the first anniversary. I don’t have a whole lot to say at this point, other than I’ve been working more on my YouTube channel lately. Apparently I taped over an episode of Boston Public (a show not on DVD) with a Nightline terrorism special from September 2001. Huh.
  • Let me get this straight: Trump can parade out the Clinton accusers and tell us to believe everything 100%, but when a group accuses him of similar wrongdoing he threatens lawsuits? Alrighty then. And you wonder why women are hesitant to come forward?

Dispatches from Ring of Honor All Star Extravaganza VIII

After all I’ve posted on here, my wrestling nerd credentials are fairly established. I’ve been to a WWF/E PPV (WM14), WCW PPV (Slamboree 1998), ECW PPV (Heat Wave ’98), RAWs, Nitros and even some shows from Chaotic, the local independent promotion. But I’ve never been to a Ring of Honor show until this past Friday’s All Star Extravaganza VIII PPV in Lowell, MA. In fact, I’ve never even watched Ring of Honor TV. I bought my ticket figuring it would be a good show since there would be guys from New Japan (and as it turned out, CMLL too). So what were my impressions?
