    The NBA Offseason Thread

    The Clippers should be forced to no longer be an NBA franchise. Just a disastrous offseason if Brand does indeed leave. The Clippers should just move to Seattle and takeover the Sonics. Still won't matter because Sterling and Baylor will be there fucking things up to no end.

    2008 NBA Draft

    I'd want them to get a PG, but from the sounds of things, Westbrook and Augustin will be off the board by the 12th pick. I've heard Anthony Randolph in a couple of late mock drafts, and while I'm intrigued by his upside, I'm scared of his bust potential. Donte Green and Darrell Arthur don't hurt my feelings, but I'm not very excited by either of them except they are both athletic, something the Kings sorely need. I'd love for Joey Dorsey to fall to the Kings in the 2nd round because he is exactly what the Kings need, but I've heard he might early 2nd.

    2008 NBA Finals: Lakers vs. Celtics

    Obviously Boston still have the upper hand, but there are outside forces at work here that could push this to a 7th game. Are the Celts still in LA? I read somewhere they aren't flying back until Tuesday morning. Bad move if true. Then we have Ray Allen leaving the team early because of a health issue with one of his children. He was just getting back into the groove of things mentally and now this. Rondo's ankle is better, but not playing well (that may change with game 6 in Boston). The biggest factor is Kendrick Perkins health. If he can give them 20-25 minutes, they will be in good position. If Perkins can't go or gives them less than 10 minutes, we're looking at a potential Game 7. Gotta look out for the Celts reserves, they should play much better at home. The Lakers will try to put themselves in position to take these games, but I think it'll be more about the Celtics giving the game/s away rather than the Lakers taking it them.

    2008 NBA Finals: Lakers vs. Celtics

    Not sure about the Celts buying a title, that's way off. However, one story not covered a lot in the Finals is how both Finals teams took stud players (Garnett and Gasol) in exchange for NBA BUTT trash. (Al Jefferson is the only player with a future in any of those deals) Nice to know the only way to win in the league now is to swindle talent away.

    Observer Note

    Since I get the Observer very early, I read a snippet in the TNA section and it had both good and bad news. The good news: TNA officials have approved Konnan's request to bring Homicide in. The bad news: It's to start a hispanic heel group consisting of Konnan, Homicide, Shocker, and Apolo The good far outweighs the bad, but I really can't stand Apolo. I've tried to give him chance after chance and I think his in ring is awkward and awful. Perhaps he can work heel very good and/or Konnan can bring something out of him. Of course, the heel group will be established after 3LK break up, where Killings is expected to join Jeff Hardy as a tag team in the tag division. Observer had this as positive for Killings because TNA management are still marks for Hardy despite the no-shows and he'll always be portrayed as strong, so this just helps Killings more than hurts him. Still, Homicide will 0wn in TNA. If Roderick Strong can make an impression and get on as a regular, this just helps towards Impact becoming the best wrestling show in North America.

    The Wire: Final Season

    I read this remote possibility somewhere, but wouldn't it be uber fucked up if ... I could see the writers for this show doing something like that, but after reading a couple spoilers, it doesn't look like it's headed in that direction.

    Campaign 2008

    Here is a potential problem for Michigan voters... http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/...on-in-michigan/ WASHINGTON (CNN) – Democratic leaders in Michigan are urging supporters of John Edwards and Barack Obama, who are not on the ballot in the state, to vote “uncommitted” in the January 15 primary – a move that could create an unexpected headache for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Clinton is the only major presidential candidate who did not pull her name from the Michigan ballot after the national party penalized the state for scheduling the vote in mid-January, rather than later in the cycle. The national party voted to strip Michigan of delegates as a penalty, but party leaders in the electoral-vote rich state have expressed confidence that they will be seated at the convention. None of the candidates, including Clinton, will be campaigning here, and none have authorized write-in campaigns – which means that, under state law, their supporters cannot cast write-in votes for any of them. But if at least 15 percent of the voters in a congressional district opt for the “uncommitted” option rather than voting for Clinton, delegates not bound to any candidate could attend the national convention – a development that could allow Edwards or Obama supporters to play a role in candidate selection there. In this cycle, more than in recent campaigns, the delegate count may prove important. Narrow losses – which still add to a candidate’s delegate total – could keep more than one presidential hopeful in contention. “For the first time since 1988, this is a delegate race,” Clinton aide Howard Wolfson told reporters Wednesday. A new group, Detroiters for Uncommitted Voters, is launching a grassroots campaign to promote the “uncommitted” option. The Detroit News reported Thursday that Democratic Rep. John Conyers and his wife, Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, said they will launch ads calling for "uncommitted" votes if there is no other way to register support for Barack Obama. The option is also being endorsed by Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, and the state’s Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer as a way for Democrats who do not support Clinton to participate in the vote. Neither man has endorsed a presidential candidate. –CNN Associate Political Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand All you Michiganites, vote "uncommitted", eh?

    UFC 75

    According to F4W website, the show did a 3.1 rating. Internally UFC and Spike were predicting a 1.9. This blew away expectations by a large margin. Here is the Spike press release....

The “UFC 75” telecast emanating from the O2 Arena in London, England peaked at 5.6 million for the bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and PRIDE champ Dan Henderson. The fight card drew more Men 18-34 and Men 18-49 than anything else on television, broadcast or cable on September 8, including heavy sports competition from college football on ABC and ESPN, NASCAR on ABC, and the U.S. Open Women’s Final on CBS. “The ratings are further proof that the tide in American sports is changing,” said Kevin Kay, General Manager, Spike TV. “Young men, who constitute the Spike TV core audience, prefer the incredible action and athleticism of the UFC to more traditional sports.” “We're very proud to have added to the rich history of sports in London with this watershed mixed martial arts event,” said Dana White, UFC President. “Not only did UFC 75 showcase the bout that unified the 205 lb Pride and UFC titles, it did so in front of a record breaking crowd at the O2 Arena in London, and in front of the largest U.S. audience to ever tune in to an MMA card during its Spike TV telecast.” “UFC 75” on Spike TV scored 2,503,000 Men 18-49 compared to 2.3 million for Oregon vs. Michigan on ABC; 2.1 million for NASCAR on ABC; 1.3 million for Virginia Tech vs. LSU on ESPN; 1.3 million for Notre Dame vs. Penn St on ESPN, and 546,000 for the U.S. Open Women’s Final on CBS. “UFC 75” on Spike TV scored 1,622,000 Men 18-34 compared to 1.2 million for Oregon vs. Michigan on ABC; 717,000 for NASCAR on ABC; 656,000 million for Virginia Tech vs. LSU on ESPN; 687,000 for Notre Dame vs. Penn St on ESPN and 190,000 for the U.S. Open Women’s Final on CBS.

Jackson won a hard fought, five round, unanimous decision over Henderson to unify the UFC and PRIDE titles in the 205lb weight class. The night's action also featured a hotly contested three round battle between former The Ultimate Fighter 3 teammates Michael “The Count” Bisping and Matt “The Hammer” Hamill, with a split decision going to Bisping. Frenchman Cheick Kongo and Mirko Cro Cop went head to head in a battle of feared kickboxers, with Kongo earning a unanimous decision after three rounds in the Octagon. The action-packed undercard also featured Nebraska native Houston Alexander winning his second straight UFC bout in stunning fashion, knocking out his opponent Alessio Sakara in just over a minute into the first round, and surging welterweight contender Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis extending his UFC win streak to six after submitting Paul Taylor via arm-bar in the first round of their match-up.

    WWE General Discussion - September 2007

    In accordance of WWE's M.O. where you have talent job and/or get humiliated in front of their home crowd, then yes, No Mercy sounds about right for Punk to drop the title. They'll probrably have him do a stretcher job/post match angle. You know, for the fans.

    Ric Flair quits WWE

    A Flair-Danielson match would be fine, assuming we are talking about a healthy Danielson. He'd be able to carry Flair and both men would be smart enough to know how to work in Flair's limitations and still give the fans something to appreciate. Flair-Misawa would be a mess. Both men were masters at what they did, but their styles are contrast too much in my opinion for it to work.

    Satellite Vs. Cable

    I've had DirecTV for about 3 years now and haven't had any problems with the channels or packages they offer. Their prices are great as well. (heard Dish Network's are even better). The only thing I'd say is not to get Satellite if you live in a really, really windy area. Sometimes a ton of wind and rain can affect the service, but it has to be very bad. I live in the Bay Area and we get a fair share of wind and I can count on one hand the times I've had problems due to rainy/windy weather.

    Just another example of how messy this entire situation really is when you step back and take in the whole picture.

    Brian "Crush" Adams found dead

    Nothing to see here. His bad. Remember, he made the choices that lead to this conclusion, so it's all good.

    Chris Benoit Dead - Toxicology results released

    But Jimmy Snuka was never convicted of the crime. He's like OJ Simpson of wrestling like that. A lot of people are pretty confident he killed his girlfriend, but can't prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Going to a house show next week

    I haven't been to a house show since '02 when Trips was defending the Undisputed title in rematches against Jericho. The show was ok. Don't bring a sign. You'll look like a tool. Just have fun, buy some merchandise if it's cool.

    It will be interesting to try to listen for the hidden and not so hidden messages Vince will put out regarding the low rating this week. Of course he's going to lash out at the fans. It's our fault, dammit!
  25. http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/article.aspx?id=1521 I have never experienced ROH live, so I'm definitely going to this. I'll probrably check out the FanFest as well. Where my West Side playerz at and are you going?
