Fantasy Football Week 3 Sleepers

by

We are back for Week 3 and players are already starting to panic. One of the strangest weeks I can ever remember is finally put to rest and it is time to look ahead at this week’s sleepers and there are a few that should be on your radar.

Once again I try to go for the not-so obvious players here. I like to find the sleepers that have great matchups, a proven history, and are real bargains you can either find off of the waiver wire, your bench, or in the bargain bin of weekly fantasy games. So with that said here are a few guys that you won’t see at the top of anyone’s Start/Sit list and that is a good thing if you are looking for some sneaky plays.

For consistency purposes I will once again use the ..click here to read more

Celebrating the Underrated Pro Wrestling Big Men of All Time

by

I love reading websites that list “The Best Ever” rankings for wrestlers or sports in general. Everyone has an opinion – some that are spot on and some that are so far out there I can only sit and laugh out loud.

The WWE has a list on its website naming the “The 30 Best Big Men of All Time” in the business. It’s a pretty well covered list, bringing the past and present together to celebrate this great business. I applaud the company for taking a swing at the subject and hitting a solid home run in my opinion.

Vince McMahon started his ownership of the WWE with the notion of “Bigger is Better,” replacing the steady, mat savvy Bob Backlund and replacing him with Hulk Hogan as the company’s top face attraction. Of course, the Iron Sheik helped make that happen, but it was the perfect torch passing for Hogan ..click here to read more

WCW Monday Nitro Episode Four Review: MENG

by

Live From Florence, South Carolina

Editor’s note: Since this Nitro involves MENG, I am out of possible death by MENG, required to capitalize MENG every time I type his name.

It should be noted that Vader was finally taken out of the intro and replaced by Lex Luger. Bischoff, Heenan and Mongo start us off. Mongo has that stupid dog with him and I’ve basically ignored Mongo on commentary. I’ve came to the conclusion that I’ll have to deal with him for at-least a year and it’s not worth pointing out his idiocy. They try to get over the gag that his dog urinated on Bobby’s shoe. We get a recap of the Savage/Luger confrontation as it’s time for disco!

Alex Wright vs Disco Inferno

I know that Inferno gets crapped on for some of his creative ideas in WCW (Alien invasion, invisible man, wrestling architect) but the gimmick is in so bad its ..click here to read more

DVR Cleanup: The Top Five Summer Comedies of 2014

by

Some people say that situational comedies are dead… I say sitcoms are on their way back! In this post we’ll visit a talking dog, a podcast superstar, a blond MILF, a bar gang, and a pill-popping hero. Here is my list of the top five summer comedies of the year…

Jennifer Falls, Season 1 (TV Land)

Finale: “Jennifer’s Song” Airdate: August 13, 2014

You have to give TV Land an A for effort. They continue to redefine their business model by trotting out comedies that cater to their very niche audience. The Jaime Pressly-led project ‘Jennifer Falls’ is the newest edition to their portfolio. There’s nothing truly spectacular about this sitcom, but it is mildly entertaining and an easy watch. Jennifer Doyle (Pressly) has lost her job, money, and prestige, and is forced to move her and her daughter back into her mother’s home.

The WWE Is Blowing It With Brock Lesnar

by

The WWE is blowing it…but you probably already knew that coming out of Monday night. The WWE will never an opportunity again to build around someone like Brock Lesnar yet they are doing their best to make sure that their investment pays very little dividends.

I recently got into a discussion with Brian Fritz on his Between the Ropes podcast about the state of the WWE. We both agreed that the company is not connecting with its fans right now. I went further to pontificate about the grand opportunity that has fallen into the laps and how the “smartest guys in the room” are letting it pass them by. Let me explain.

Guys like Brock Lesnar don’t come around every day. Take a look back at the glory years of the WWE and those years always featured a franchise guy on top. Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, and The Rock were ..click here to read more

WWE Raw Causes Riots, leads to Raging Ambivalence over Night of Champions

by

WWE Night of Champions is coming up on Sunday, September 21. The event features Brock Lesnar defending the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against former titleholder John Cena. Roman Reigns will face former Shield teammate Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho will square off against Randy Orton.

Crickets. Yeah, I know.

It’s a tough one this time, there is no doubt about it. Maybe it’s because there was such an incredible amount of hype surrounding SummerSlam, or maybe it’s because SummerSlam delivered on many levels. Truth be told, maybe NOC is just in a bad spot; try following up the event billed as the hottest one of the summer.

Or, maybe it’s because WWE just doesn’t care about it. Raise your hands if you agree with that. Okay, put your hands down.

Okay so, it’s not that easy. Leave it up to pro wrestling fans to go and ..click here to read more

WWE WrestleMania 31 Predictions – Seven Months Out

by

Believe it or not we are less than eight months before WWE WrestleMania 31. The biggest event of 2015 is the end game for the current WWE creative team and while card is always subject to change, here are some card predictions based on the current landscape.

It is almost impossible to predict the next WrestleMania card this far in advance yet it doesn’t mean I won’t try. Storylines change, injuries are unpredictable, and the roster could look much different by the time March 29, 2014 rolls around. However there are a few balls in the air which make the guesswork a little easier as compared to a few weeks back. Keep in mind that all of these picks are pure guesses unless otherwise noted.

I took a stab at early Mania 31 picks the week after the 30th edition of the event wrapped up. Most of those picks won’t pan out ..click here to read more

NFL Week 2 Recap and Week 3 Questions

by

Major talking points from Week 2

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is still frustrating to watch. By the end of the first half in Week 1 the Steelers were manhandling the Browns. Social media was running wild of a surprise 13-3 season and numerous theories on how much improved the offense and defense looked (finally). All was looking well……and then the second half happened. Although I am a proponent of “a win is a win”, that doesn’t fix the glaring issues this team had and still has this season. After holding on for a last second field goal victory in Week 1, it was a quick turnaround to play the Ravens on the road in Week 2. The opening drive ended prematurely with a turnover and the Ravens seemed to take over the game from there. The last six games the Steelers have played, four of them have produced opponent totals of ..click here to read more

Rectify Season Two Review

by

The second season of the Sundace TV show ‘Rectify’ has affirmed its position as one of the best five shows on television, in my opinion. This show takes its time, is extremely easy to watch, and offers a ton of drama through the oft-used paradox character abstruseness. It is a study in how clever television should be done; how intelligent viewers can be; how simplicity is more intricate than complexity.

Season two gives us more insight into how Daniel is still coping with day-to-day life after serving 19 years on death row. We also saw more of the same things I talked about last year: Law officials not willing to admit their mistakes. There have been so many real-life ‘Dateline’ stories of an innocent man being sent to prison for murder, and a district attorney’s office unwilling to admit the ..click here to read more

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 3

by

This week’s waiver list has the potential to be pretty long. So I am going to limit the list to players who are less than 60% owned on average. My goal is to give you a list each week of players who are most likely still available. No reason to tell you about Terrance West because at 90% owned it isn’t going to help you.

No animals were harmed while writing this blog

Quarterback:

If you are going into week #3 in desperate need of a starting QB, these guys will help get you through. The top five available QB are all from the same statistical tier. You could blindly throw a dart at the list and you would end up with the same amount of fantasy points no matter where it lands.

Geno Smith, New York Jets – Smith is at the top of this list because he can run. His 200 yards ..click here to read more

WWE Top 10 Video: World Championship Victories

The WWE has posted one of the more interesting top 10 lists on its YouTube channel. The WWE ranks the top 10 WWE championship wins in a list that is bound to stir debate among wrestling fans.

Before I get into anything I just want to preface this by saying you have to take these lists for what they are. It is someone’s opinion the same as I have my opinion and you have yours. Thus there really is no right or wrong list when it comes to something this subjective. That said, this list is ridiculous!

10 – The Rock defeats Triple H (Backlash 2000) 9 – Eddie Guerrero defeats Brock Lesnar (No Way Out 2004) 8 – Mankind defeats The Rock (Monday Night Raw, 1999) 7 – Randy Savage defeats Ted DiBiase (WrestleMania 4) 6 – Ultimate Warrior defeats Hulk Hogan (WrestleMania 6) 5 – Daniel Bryan defeats Batista, Randy Orton (WrestleMania 30) 4 – John ..click here to read more , , , , ,
