Lots of random thoughts during this busy time of the year. We hope that you will consider our on line store as a holiday shopping option and want to thank all those that have and to those that are planning on placing orders with us. The time is now.
Unique night on Raw with the Slammies being presented throughout the three hour broadcast. Congrats to all that picked up hardware and good luck carrying the awards in your carry on throughout your upcoming, business travel. Expect TSA to be curious.
David Arquette's persona seems easy to dislike or at least I found it as such. I think that was the idea.
Looking forward to an upcoming visit to FCW. Always enjoy visiting with the rookies and other trainees. WWE has a terrific facility in Tampa and some promising prospects. Several have the chance to be good but only if they totally invest in themselves and commit to accepting nothing less than success. How one measures success, in my view, isn't simply being called up to the primary roster.
However an individual measures success has to include total commitment to the business and all phases that affect the performers lives.
Emailer....I have no idea who will be inducted into the WWE HOF this year in Atlanta but your question as to if Wahoo McDaniel would be inducted I would suggest not likely. Do I think that Wahoo is deserving? Heck, yes. But I'm also biased when it comes to the former Sooner and one of the toughest men both physically and mentally I ever knew in the business. For those that saw 'the Chief' in his prime you know of which I speak.
I haven't read Dutch Mantell's 'Tales from a Dirt Road' yet but plan on it at some point soon. Dutch is a vivid story teller and I'm sure that this book will be entertaining as is Dutch in real life.
If Brock Lesnar were to become a coach of UFC's TUF I would not be totally shocked but it would be somewhat surprising. If Lesnar can market his upcoming book, add some marketing stretch to his growing list of sponsors, etc the idea would be viable. I do have concerns that Brock would want to relocate to Vegas for the 6-7 weeks that it would take to tape the next season but if Frank Mir were the other coach then the build to their much discussed 'rubber match' would be special.
Speaking of UFC, I wish, as a fan, that they would mic their lives crowds better. Small point but I think it would enhance the TV presentation of the product.
Our on line business is good and you still have time to place an order and get it delivered via Federal Express Ground by Xmas. The Sampler has been the top selling item along with cases of Mustard, Ketchup and the two BBQ Sauces.
Looking forward to being in Houston for the WWE PPV, Tables, Ladders and Chairs this Sunday as a fan. As an announcer, broadcasting matches that end without a pin fall or submission are particularly challenging. I'm sure the broadcast team will handle this matter well but it is a different presentation for them and takes a different mindset on the approach to those types of bouts.

The NFL lockout for 2011 looks imminent. If so, several draft eligible players will be able to go back to college for another year which isn't a bad thing. Education is imperative for all young people.
Many on Twitter hammered me that OU Coach Bob Stoops was going to be the next coach at Florida of which I knew wasn't going to happen and it isn't. The Sooners are blessed to have such a great, family man as their skipper of their Fiesta Bowl bound team. Will Muschamp leaving Texas doesn't do the 'Horns any favors.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you will take the time to visit our store today. Thanks for supporting our efforts.
