Welcome back yet again. As far as the Blog situation goes for all camps, the past few days have created a nice topic. Is there anyone out there who can actually say they liked the MTV Video Music Awards? I haven’t seen it anyways. So far, either in their Blog or just talking to them while the show was going on, I know that Cork, Derek, ManDingo, Susie, and Aly all hated the show, along with myself. Since I plug everything in this space, check out Susie’s new Blog at http://susie-is-me.blogspot.com/ and throw in some comments. She’s in the mean streets near Bam Margera and basically right on Penn State’s campus for those wanting to know where she hails from. Or as one of my favorite wrestling introductions would go from the ECW days of Joel Gertner, "He hails from the South Side of Dudleyville.. He weighs a slim, trim, buff, cut, ripped, chiseled, and JACKED 219 pounds! The most righteous brother in the building, D-Von Dudley!"
Last night was also Monday Night RAW. Was it a good show? Let’s see what I have to say on this. Triple H comes out and gives a nice promo about how he’s the reason behind Evolution. Orton claims that HHH is doing it all for himself, to which HHH gives a good answer to say that, yes he is doing it for himself since he created Evolution. A little too soon to start this feud, but I’m sure it’ll last months, which should be nice to see transpire right before our very eyes. Since HHH has Eric Bischoff in his back pocket, Bischoff throws Orton out of the arena only to come back later. You don’t want to know about the bum matches, so I’ll save you the time there. If you’re a fan, you already know about those matches anyways. There were only two big matches tonight in my opinion. One was Ric Flair facing Chris Benoit. I was looking forward to this one as both of these guys are legends in their own mind as far as ring skills go. Walking to the ring, Flair extends his hand to a fan, pulls it back, slicks back his hair and then struts off. Classic stuff. Anyways, the match was nice until the end. A run-in! Doh! Batista comes down to bust up Benoit and the bell is rung. I understand this in some cases, but if you have two good mat technicians out there, let them battle till the end. We also have Jericho’s Highlight Reel in which he invites Edge down. Edge is mangled, so he won’t be able to take Y2J up on his challenge for his IC Title since his nads are mangled (groin, but close enough), but said when he comes back, he’ll be the first guy he goes to. During this time, as Edge is getting out of the ring with his crutches, Christian makes his return! This could be a nice breath of fresh air. On a side note, as far as being in person goes, Christian’s old entrance was a sight to see. Could they eventually put these three guys together to form some type of Canadian group? I doubt it with Jericho being a face right now, but that wouldn’t be bad to see, even though I’m not an Edge guy. Our main event has HHH taking on Eugene. Eugene has gotten enough main event matches. I like the dude’s wrestling, but the character is already stale to me. Another run-in here, but it was a No-DQ match, so it was ok. Orton runs down, busts HHH up with a sledgehammer and hits the RKO. As Evolution tried to sneak in, Orton scared them off with the sledge and threw Eugene on top of HHH for the pin. As Good Ol’ JR said to end the show, “Oh God! Oh my God! You gotta be kiddin me! Eugene beat… Eugene beat THE GAME! Can you believe this? Eugene, thanks to Randy Orton has upset The Game! He’s out gamed The Game tonight!”
Yesterday, I didn’t leave the house. Should I be proud of that? Probably not, but what else is there to do around here? Unless you count going to my garage for like 5 minutes, but other than that, I didn’t do a thing. Today I just got in from working out, but I doubt I do much else other than that the rest of the day. It’s 11:30 and I don’t have much planned at all. Fun being a bum though, so I can’t complain that much. Here’s a nice stat for everybody. Since I went to the Dirty South in the ATL, which was the last weekend of July, I’ve used about a half tank of gas. That’s how much I drive around my area. I basically drive a mile to go workout every other day and that’s it. I had a Wal-Mart trip or two in there, but that’s only 20 minutes away, so no biggie. In a month’s time, I’ve used a half tank of gas. Not too shabby at all there. Meanwhile, Cork has put about 8237 miles on his car since then.
Give me a few minutes here, while I go into a trance watching Ashanti in Shyne’s new video.
Ok, I’m back and will all kinds of energy built up from that.
The biggest news to me this week so far might not concern a lot of you, but to some, it’s HUGE news in a major way. Lobstah returns! That’s right, LOBSTAH! Due to some technical difficulties, we were without our #basketball message board for a good week or so. The non-#basketball guys are wondering why it’s such a big deal, but it was a struggle for us to go without our Lobstah for a week. It’s an addiction. We’ve already started to rock it out again, so we’re back with a vengeance.
On the food front, for those who know me or have read in Lobstah before probably, I have a good one for everyone. If you’re a Doritos fan, this will be a hit. And it has to be original Doritos. The other flavors don’t exist in my opinion. Pour some Doritos in a bowl, get some hot sauce, shake it all over the Doritos and you have some quality eating. I know it might seem weird, but you’ll have to try this one. Don’t put a ton of Doritos in the bowl at once. You don’t want your stuff getting soggy. Let me know how this turns out for you.
The Yankees start a big homestand this week. We get Cleveland for 3 games, followed by Baltimore for 3 games, and then Tampa Bay for 4 games. That’s 10 straight home games when we need it most. It’s not panic mode, but I’m just disappointed we blew an 11-game lead on Boston. Now we’re up a whopping 4½ games. No way can our pitching hold up in the playoffs, but we’ll see. Lots of time left in the season, that’s for sure. Not to mention we still get to play Boston 6 more times, so that’ll be fun. I like our schedule the rest of the way out because we get games against Baltimore, Kansas City, and Toronto, three teams we’ve had nice luck against this year. Next to NBA season, late in the year for baseball is my second favorite time in sports. It’s time where the men come to play and the boys go and cry. Or is that roiding up? Either way.
