I was going to put that up, and while it was epic, the Kyrie Shot immediately popped into my brain as a "I can't believe that just happened moment." I think there is room for both, though. The Shot, The Block..... THE EFFING TITLE!!
I was born in Deaconess Hospital, which no longer exists, which for those of you not from the area, was a Cleveland hospital. My dad was in the Coast Guard so were were always moving. I spent 7 years of my life in Fairview Park (west side suburb of Cleveland), which was the longest stretch of time in any place, before my dad retired and moved us to Columbus in 1994, where I've resided since. Though I don't live there anymore, and haven't for quite some time, I'm from Cleveland.... Cleveland is in my DNA and cried like a baby last night for I never thought I would live to see my hometown win a Championship in one of the four major sports.
I could have sworn I heard the opening riff of the Dean Ambrose entrance while watching the games at home. I mean, it's not like ABC and the BTN have any reason to play that particular riff, but, it was there nearly every 3rd down (can't always hear 3rd down music on TV).
"But they're only kids... something like this shouldn't ruin the rest of their lives..." - All folks who also are never held accountable for their actions.
I saw some love for SW and LotR, and Starship Troopers. I didn't see Independence Day, which I felt was pretty fun 20 years ago and it still holds a place in my heart. One of the more underrated Alien Invasion vs Humans movies, to anyway, is Battle: Los Angeles. I really like how they went less sci-fi. Also, I'll throw my hat into Edge of Tomorrow... I mean, who doesn't want to see a war movie where Tom Cruise dies every 3 minutes or so??
Somebody who finally recognizes Queen for how great they are, well done sir!
I could give you a 4th for Pop: The true power-4 of the 80s... Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Houston
So your position is that Van Halen isn't a hair band but it's responsible for hair bands?
Yes, I think I can agree with that assessment... makes sense to me, to be honest.
I'd provide a few analogies, but I'd get the ban-hammer for the content.
I'm totally on board with no RB being drafted this year. They have Johnson ready to take the starting job. He is a legit 3 down back. much like a beloved former Buckeye, Duke's skill set is a lot like Zeke's (but with NFL experience) who can run, catch, and block.
A co-worker of mine a few years ago told me about that one, so I decided to watch it. That was brutal, like worse then "Last House on the Left".
The original was about as brutal as 70s horror flick could get; the remake from 2010 was far more brutal...
The best song ever was Rivera coming out to Enter Sandman... you cannot compete or repeat....
I'm going straight up Wrastlin' entrance songs, and it would depend on the situation, because that's how i roll...
lead-off OR less than 2 outs and nobody on: Stone Cold's entrance
runners on with less than 2 outs: Ultimate Warrior's entrance
2 outs and nobody on: The Rockers' entrance
runners on with 2 outs: Dean Ambrose's entrance
Welp, the Browns finally released Ole' Fooseballer and much like Johnny under pressure, it was slower than the fans expected...
While most people would feel the need to point to steroid use, I would go another route. Just like today's stars have to show more athleticism and risk taking, you can go back era by era and see the evolution of moves/matches.
Rarely was a "high risk maneuver" used in the 50s-early 70s. There was next to no top rope double axe handle smashes and certainly no atomic elbow drops. Rarely were there anything more than body slams and traditional clotheslines.
Go to the 80s and the high flyer was starting to evolve, which is harder to control both your body, the impact, and hit sell compared to the earlier era. With that increase in risk, one can surmise an increase in concussions, er sorry, "getting your bell rung." You also have to realize this came with taking more bumps and being harder on the body, both the hitter and the seller.
Go to the 90s/2000s, you have folks who's sole role became "extreme rules" by jumping off higher and higher platforms and onto ladders, tables, and chairs. Again, more risk to the body, most likely more concussions, and certainly more pain killer addictions to keep going.
All-in-all, I'd say the evolution of the business had increased the damage to the body over time. Look at some of the greatest performers still alive from the 80s and they are a shell of themselves due to head trauma and pain pill use to get through the day. I feel it will be worse for those from the 90s/early 2000s.
I think Macho Man claims Chicago as his home town even though he was born in Ohio he didn't really grow up there
seriously this guy grew up in Zanesville and graduated HS in Illinois, he often told people he was from Downers Grove.
I see your opinion and you're wrong.
You realize we live in city where the namesake never put a single toe down in the area AND that person has a statue erected, right?
If good 'ole Christopher can have one, then Macho Man is certainly qualified since he was actually born here AND did spend time in the area.
That's why you go while your wife is pregnant.
1) Depends on how far along she is... hell NO if she's in the third tri, since the daggers are very sharp when you're drinking and she's had enough with being prego.
2) If she was already pregnant, then OK, but by no means should you go seek to get her pregnant just to have a 10+ month DD... that's just asking for trouble, especially with #1 above, because it will happen.
I have a 5 year old with ASD and a 2.5 yr old typical. Haven't even tried yet...
How many Golden Corral's do you think he could close down single handedly?
We got stamped... it was a Dead Pool mask stamp.
I really have no idea how they got the "Hard R" rating... it should have been NC-17.... BUT IT WAS EFFING AWESOME!!
I understand you were trying to be clever, but you failed miserably... everybody knows the Browns OVER value college players...
T. Richardson, B. Weeden, J. Manziel, J. Gilbert, B. Mingo.... should I keep going?
I was reminded of the movie Idiocracy.
To be fair, everything that happens today should remind you of Idiocracy... we're already 70% there...
I described pro wrestling as a live version of stuntmen performing action scenes from movies
Stealing that description, thanks!!
Thanks SM, you really nailed what I was trying to get to with the overly simplistic "'fake fighting' actually isn't fake, and has dire consequences" comment. This was where I was trying to get without getting the snarky "TL;DR" comments that I've received on other posts where I was showing passion.
