Anyone going to be in Vegas for the Main? I’m flying in Tuesday, and playing Wednesday.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

NBA Fans over the last few months: LeBron could take less money and go to Houston with CP3 and Harden and really compete with GSW. That'd be awesome.

NBA Fans today: I can't believe Cousins has the audacity to take less money to go to the GSW. What a coward and a joke.

The insurance against another OKC finals appearance is all I care about until the Sonics exist again, so I fully support these other Western Conference teams becoming ridiculously loaded.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I have never claimed to be an NBA expert by any stretch, but what is LeBron thinking with going to LA. He has about a 2% chance of winning a title there and I think that might be generous. He could have gotten similar money almost anywhere he signed, so what am I missing?

What Lebron's thinking:

I don't want to live life after basketball in Cleveland.
I want to act when my career's over.
Let's move to Hollywood.

Endorsement money from being a Laker is more than any contract he could sign as well

Lakers title chances are considerably higher than 2% this year alone, never mind getting at least one in any of the four years he's there.

Yeah, I'm mostly out of the NBA loop, but subsequent to the LeBron signing and prior to the Cousins-GSW signing yesterday, Lakers were listed at 4-1 to win the NBA Finals next year.

Even before the Cousins signing, 4-1 would have been a horrible bet. That team isn’t going anywhere regardless of the Warriors.

4-1 is absurd, but so is 50-1.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

strange observation of the day:

So, this summer, we're making our soon to be 15 year old daughter watch a bunch of 80s movies with the parents. Stuff like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Breakfast Club, Airplane... you get the idea.

We fired up The Naked Gun late last week. One I still enjoy far too much. It's sort of amazing how dated most of the references are though... except one.



Who would have thought that of all the semi-obscure people that made a random cameo appearance, Weird Al Yankovic would be the one that she recognizes as a contemporary?

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Weird Al has aged quite well and looks great for someone pushing 60, but I'm definitely surprised to hear that a teenager knows who he is.

I went to a concert of his once upon a time in a rinky-dink theater near where I grew up, and it still stands out as one of the best performances I've seen. Dude works his ass off onstage. Unfortunately it was before Bad Hair Day, so there was no Alternative Polka.

That, uh, would be the parents fault in this case.

MLB TV for 40 bucks would be incredibly tempting if the white Sox weren't a tire fire

Am I the only one that prefers Facebook Happy Birthday's to real-life Happy Birthday greetings?

(Guys, it's my birthday)

Yes.

I pretty much stick to e-mailing or texting people on their birthdays anymore if I won't be seeing them in person. If I don't have that contact info then our relationship is probably too non-existent for it to matter to them if I offer my well-wishes anyway.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I've got GLOW season 2 as better than season 1 (which I enjoyed).

It's not some GOAT-level show, but it's certainly fun.

I would agree about glow, but I think that's the fact there's more story than just catty girlfights

Tried the show for the first time since 15. Pretty disappointing overall. Everything feels slow and clunky and I just get annoyed playing it

Marc Maron is great in this role. Alison Brie seems to genuinely be loving it. She even had a #kayfabe in one of her Instagram posts.

If anyone is interested and likes 90s rock, I'm running a sheep over in LOLPOG that will likely be revealed tonight:
