Oklahoma is set to have record setting heat today...too bad...was 'thinking' about doing some yard work....not. Here's some brief, random thoughts...
I worked until around 2 a.m. updating the Q&A section of the site and dove back into it this morning so check 'em out when you have a minute.However, if you only have a minute, hit the store and place an order for some of our outstanding products that come with FREE SHIPPING in the USA.
Remember that WWEShop.com is selling selected JR's products to Canada, UK, and Germany.
We have been hammered with emails from fans who think that I am the anonymous, Raw General Manager. Some are adamant and almost childlike in that if I am that I should tell them and tell them NOW because they HAVE to know.
I like the idea of an anonymous GM but it does put some pressure to deliver a viable surprise when the day finally comes to reveal the mystery person or does it? The individual's identity wouldn't necessarily have to be revealed as far as I'm concerned.
Read on line about the Martha Hart lawsuit vs WWE. I am not a lawyer, have never played one on TV, and know zilch about this untimely legal matter. Nonetheless my personal opinion is that the timing of this legal posturing is questionable specifically as it relates to Connecticut politics. Plus, I have never recalled WWE ever doing any thing but honoring Owen's legacy and certainly not 'exploiting' it in a negative light.
Owen Hart is one of the most requested guys who fans want to see inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. We get dozens of emails off and on all year or whenever the HOF topic is discussed. Does this legal mindset mean that if WWE ever decided to induct Owen into the Hall of Fame that he so richly deserves that there would be more litigation? Should the threat of a lawsuit deprive Owen Hart of an honor that many feel that he deserves?
Contrary to any litigation, present or future, Owen's legacy isn't going to be forgotten and nor should it.
Now you can see why I'm not a fan of politics. It seems that in today's political world tactics like this are the norm. Again, this is only one guy's opinion and I certainly do NOT represent WWE but it saddens me to have my memory jolted this morning of my late friend in a manner such as this.
We're getting some really cool feedback from Grillers who are using some of our suggestions and recipes that feature our products. Keep them coming.
An emailer asked if our JR's Cookbook, that we personalize to your specs with each book sold, has some BBQ and Grilling tips included and the answer is absolutely. We've simplified the processes and it is actually near the front of the book. Plus, the recipes are simple to do as the best dishes are usually the one's that are the most simple to prepare. We actually wrote this cookbook with men in mind or folks in general who like it simple and quick.
The Oklahoma Sooners made the College World Series. Wish I had the time to head to Omaha to see them play. I've always loved this event and it's on my unofficial 'bucket List.'
Emailer asked me what is the key to Lesnar vs. Carwin for the UFC heavyweight Title....a few things come to mind but 'striking defense' seems to be at the top of my 'hit list,' no pun intended. Both Brock and the interim champion are one punch knock out type fighters and one would deduct that avoiding those clean, killer shots is a must in this fight. I still don't think it will go five rounds and will end in a nasty, conclusive fashion. The primary reason that we are going to Las Vegas is to see our man Brock win a huge fight but I still feel this will be the former WWE champion's toughest test, by far, to date. I was happy to read that Randy Couture had traveled to Minnesota to do some training with Lesnar which strategically makes a ton of sense. No one has survived one round with Carwin on his way to being 12-0 which also speaks to Carwin's experience advantage in MMA over the Champion. July 3rd draws near and it will be a PPV that all MMA fans will have to experience.
Thanks for dropping by and for keeping in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter. Keep those orders coming. We appreciate everyone's support, as always.
