Being busy is a good thing and change isn't always a bad thing. I'm just saying.
Anxious to watch Raw tonight to see how Michael Cole justifies his actions of last week where he did all that he could to make sure that Miz retained the WWE Title. What will Cole do? Get a reprieve from the 'mysterious' Raw GM, hire a good attorney?? In any event the interaction between Cole/King/Punk should be entertaining and better each week.
The three man Raw broadcast dynamic has been interesting for me to listen to even though I find myself listening too closely at times. Was it Ron White or Larry the Cable Guy who simply said, "Let it go." Old habits die hard.
I find myself doing the same thing when listening to radio sports PXP or watching a football game where I keep a close eye on the officiating than I need to be doing after 20 years of wearing the (thinning) striped shirt on the gridiron.
No need to send me any more links to the recent comments made by Shane Helms regarding Shawn Michaels. I'm not getting involved in that matter nor am I commenting on it. You would be amazed at how many people have asked me my thoughts on this subject of which I have none.
MVP requested his WWE release to explore other options as I understand it. I personally like MVP and have always enjoyed our relationship. He's a talented guy who has endured and overcome some major league challenges in his life. MVP's life might make for a good movie as a matter of fact. I always preferred the antagonist MVP better than the fan favorite MVP but that's merely a personal preference. The guy is a survivor and he will perceiver and be just fine. Being off the road during the holidays isn't a bad thing and it gives him time to assess what he wants to do. We had some particularly fun conversations when Oklahoma had their home and home college football series with MVP's fav team, 'The U.'
Good to see that UFC star Chael Sonnen got his suspension cut in half. Heard the hearing was a joke. Between athletic commissions run by government appointees who are, at times, totally unqualified for their roles and the wacky judging of some MMA fights there is never a dull moment in the ever growing sport of MMA. Sonnen needs a solid fight and obviously a win to get back to the rematch phase with Anderson Silva in my opinion. In my opinion, Sonnen not having a fight prior to fighting Anderson Silva would be a strategic mistake.
How's this for a fantasy scenario, GSP beats the holy hell out of Josh Koscheck for three rounds and then in the 4th round in Montreal GSP is severely cut, the fight is stopped and Koshcheck leaves Quebec with the hometown hero's title and more angst than a serial killer?
For that rematch, one would be printing money.....oh, I forgot, MMA 'purists' aren't wild about 'rematches.' My bad.
Yeah, I get it MMA crazies, this isn't pro wrestling but, remember, that I did include the term 'fantasy.'
Had a blast at the Big 12 Title game in Dallas over the weekend. Sad to see the Sooner-Cornhusker rivalry fade off into the sunset but at least I can say I was there and that my team squeezed out a 3 point win. I took as many photos with Nebraska fans as I did with Oklahoma folks. If a future Wrestlemania doesn't happen in Jerry's World aka Cowboys Stadium some day I'll be shocked. With the right attraction, and I mean the right attraction, the event in Arlington could theoretically move 100,000 tickets.
Because I was in Dallas over the weekend, I saw no MMA Saturday. I will be watching the UFC PPV this week however.
Federal Express says that they cannot guarantee Xmas delivery of shipments that go out after December 17....just a FYI. Fed X Ground generally gets to where it needs to in 2-3 days from our experience. Again, we ship only to street addresses and no post office boxes.
The Main Event Mustard has become a hit. If you are a mustard person and want to enjoy a tasty, healthy condiment this is the one for you. 'The Sampler' is our top seller but we are being challenged to keep the Beef Jerky in stock.
Lots of folks are ordering from us for not only personal use but also for gifts for family member, fellow wrestling fans, and for corporate/business gifts. Others are also gifting teachers and others with our products. Our thanks to you all.
Saw a short clip of Kofi-Swagger from Smackdown Friday Night. These two hungry, athletic young men have chemistry without question. Next to Lawler's show stealing performance with Miz last Monday on Raw, IMO, once again, Swagger-Kofi was the best WWE, TV match on the air last week.
The next NXT group has some talented guys involved with it. I've seen them all multiple times in FCW and some have the potential to be very good. It won't happen this week but in time good things could happen for some of them. No I won't say who's the next big thing, etc as its not fair to the athletes or to me.
The Q&A section of the site has been updated as of Monday afternoon. Did your question 'make the cut?'
Follow us at Twitter @JRsBBQ. I do what I can to answer many of the sane Tweets as best I can.
Huge interest and a huge TV rating awaits tonight's Jets-Pats game. I'm pulling for the Jets even though I'm not a Patriot's hater. Lots of my pals in the Northeast are Jets fans including Taz, The Fink, and even the controversial voice of WWE Michael Cole. Bottom line though is that I'm a Rex Ryan fan considering he once coached here at OU and is a native Okie. The human sound byte machine became golden to me after his performances on HBO's Hard Knocks. I'm happy to have picture in picture in our big screen TV.
Sorry to hear of the passing of Dandy Don Meridith who was one of the great voices of Monday Night Football for over a decade. he was one of my favorite broadcasters because he was so natural...very organic. That's good advice for any young wrestler or beginning broadcaster...be natural...be yourself...don't play the role of a wrestler or a broadcaster.
Thanks for stopping by and for supporting our site. We appreciate all that you do for us. Boomer Sooner!
