Some of the most compelling sheep contests of all time.

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

I don't even get around to all of the likely good movies and TV shows I want to see. Pretty difficult to work in the ones that are likely bad and that don't intrigue me in the slightest.

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

I finally saw the room in its entirety instead of just a clip. It's ... a movie I guess? The novelty of "hey this is bad" wears off pretty quickly and then you're just watching a bad movie with bad acting.

Do not recommend.

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

It is pretty jarring to think that we used to consistently have 20+ people live-sweating Raw every week.

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

I know forums are down and poker is down, but I have to think the biggest factor in our reduction in activity is Raw and Smackdown sucking consistently for several years now.

This. I don’t have it in my head to come here regularly because I haven’t watched regularly in, what, three years?

I might - MIGHT - come back to the product when Vince dies, but even that seems pretty unlikely. I don’t see myself watching wrestling into my fifties.

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

If you're not still watching WrestleMania V at least once every few years, even in your fifties, you're doing it wrong.

(But I realize you're likely just referring to the modern product.)

It was all kinds of bush league for every news outlet under the sun to spoil Holzhauer's Jeopardy result today. Multiple push notifications right around lunch time.

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

Cashed in some Chase CC points for a Spotify gift card because it was on discount and I would get a higher dollar value back that way. Then the Spotify gift card code didn't work. I get on their support chat.

"So my gift card isn't working for some reason. Can you help?"
<support agent looks me up>
"Ah, this is for a three-month subscription, but I see that this isn't working because you have Spotify + Hulu. You can't use a gift card to fund an account with Spotify + Hulu."
"Err, okay, I'm confused. Spotify + Hulu is the exact same price as the base Spotify Premium now, right?"
"Yes it is. You still can't use a gift card for it. Company policy."

WTF. Thankfully Chase promptly refunded my points when I messaged them about it.

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

Arrived at a door a half-second after a woman. She opens and holds it behind her as I take it (nearly instantaneously) and mumble “thanks” as I enter directly behind. All very standard; an exchange we’ve all had 100+ times.

As we both get into the building, me trailing behind, after 3-4 seconds she sarcastically says “You’re welcome” over her shoulder. Apparently my mumble was inaudible. And I’m being scolded for it. Well that’s fun. As I process this awkwardness, she chimes in again over her shoulder and says, “Ingrate.”

Just when I thought I couldn’t hate door-holding culture any more...

Charles Barkley might know even less about hockey than I do.

Ha, I hadn’t even seen a Twitter reaction, but that was one of the most clueless bits of “analysis” I’ve ever seen. Charles is entertaining, but that was some Art Donovan ****.
