Stunt Granny Sports Show #5

130317230217-tx-madness-t1-wideWell we ended up taking the week off after all but we are back, albeit a day or two late, with another edition of The Stunt Granny Sports Show. This week Eric2 and Jeremy break down the obvious story of the NCAA tournament selections. How do they feel their respective favorites will do and how far can they actually get this year? Is it fair that a team like Liberty that lost twenty, yes twenty, games make the tournament? What is the point of having a play in game for an 11 seed? How the hell do you acquire three technical fouls and lose a tournament game when things are seemingly in hand? They also go back to the well and talk about a total halftime failure for one lucky basketball contestant. The NHL has finally done pulled the trigger and has agreed to realignment. Do the new conferences make sense? How about the playoff format? How did they draw up the geographic lines? Really; Florida and Detroit are in the same division? They then decide to argue the difference between play fighting, slap fighting and boxing glove dexterity. Obviously they discuss more but this is just a preview after all.  In order to get it all you simply need to download the show and listen.

Kevin’s Blog: Almost Live, Definitely Half Assed Review of #WWE #Raw

Brad-Pitt-fight-club-body

I was a lazy ass for the site for this past week. I’ll home that trend doesn’t continue. I’m bummed that I didn’t get to my Guinness post for St. Patrick’s Day. That still may be coming. I still have to review the 6 beers I had in Nashville that are all brewed in the fine state of Tennessee. I only have one game to attend this week so I’ll hope to get typing more. Let’s roll.

John Cena comes out in black & gold in Pittsburgh to try and get a better crowd reaction. It doesn’t help. His promo doesn’t have Wrestlemania Main Event written anywhere near it. Glad John passed by the Pirates. They have a great history, just not a recent one. This skit is leading to a squash match. Woof. I like the Prime Time Players most of the time. This one was a terrible effort at an inopportune time. This squash match even gets a commercial break. Just wow. Forget what I said two weeks ago about the WWE writers waking up. Five Knuckle Shuffle & AA finishes the match after the break. Recap of Smackdown with Mark Henry, Ryback & the Shield. That was the next break.

David Otunga is fodder for Ryback. The crowd finally gets to the chanting for the clothesline. Shell shock. I’m glad he’s addressing Mark Henry. Vickie makes their match for Wrestlemania. I guess SD has a story line for this week. Granted, everyone knows that the Big Show is going to be the other partner. I was scratching my head watching SD.

Holy cow, another Smackdown recap. They are loving the Fandango. The Great Khali is coming down to the ring for some reason. Fandango wants Natalya to take a crack at his name. He’s going into a Brian Fantana/Ron Burgundy territory hitting on her. I wonder if he’s going to have the parquet by the time they hit Cbus in late April.

I’m kind of digging the R Truth wife beater. The whole outfit is a bit much. Damien Sandow is a good foil for him. I liked both of their promos more than Cena’s. Sandow saves himself by rolling out of the ring and getting counted out. Am I smelling a Rhodes Scholars vs R Truth & Kofi Kingston at Wrestlemania? Kaitlyn interrupts the Bellas who are fawning over Cody‘s mustache. I think I smell a Diva’s Title match too. Rhodes should drop the Bellas. Not even a contest.

Undertaker allows me time to catch up. Undertaker is short and to the point. CM Punk playing with the urn is awesome. I’ve loved his switch in focus away from the title reign length. Good stuff but not much to it.

Daniel Bryan & Kane are taking on Rosa Mendes with Epico & Primo. Mitchell Cool said that the mask hides Kane’s expressions. I guess he’s missed every single skit with these two since they’ve been together. Kane looks like he’s going to finish off Primo when AJ Lee skips around the ring. Epico takes the loss instead. Big E Langston & Ziggler vs these two for the titles at WM? Chris Jericho is proud of his Intercontinental Championship total. He’s interrupted by Fandango. Silly Jericho has been in full effect since his babyface turn. He’s not all that funny in this mode.

My mutt Kia can’t decide where to sleep tonight. She just took my spot on the couch. I skip over Alberto Del Rio‘s introduction. At least he has stopped using the car entrance. Cody Rhodes gets to lose to him.  The old shoulder into the post trick gets Rhodes his save face offense. Scratch on that. We do get a commercial break. The live crowd got to see most of Cody’s offense. Mitchell Cool explaining the Cross Arm Breaker like it was a complicated concept was really weird. A part of the crowd starts chanting “USA!” Cody Rhodes taps out. Jack Swagger ambushes Del Rio again. What a fall by Rodriguez. Looked like he rolled thru fairly well though. Zeb Colter gets to back up so that Swagger can save him. Good sell job by Ricardo too.

Booker T is going into the Hall of Fame. Good for him. I would have expected him to get the nod when they go to Texas again.

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania XIII’s Best Matches

Here’s a tale of two WWFs: One great match, a handful of good matches, a little identity crisis here and there, and some relative stinkers, all while the newly-attitudinal WWF navigates the deep, dark waters of second place. Which match will, alongside Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin, reign supreme?

Stunt Granny Conversation: Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 14: Prey

TWD_GP_314_1109_0131

We are two episodes away from the season finale of The Walking Dead and boy o boy have things turned up. Did this episode finally redeem Andrea at all? Is she still a moron or was this finally the opportunity for her to become more than a one dimensional character? Is it worth saving Milton for another season if this is indeed the end of The Governor arc? Why is he the only person who routinely calls The Governor by his first name? Wasn’t that confidential information as well as a big plot point earlier? Is it time for betting odds on who does and does not make it out of this season? As always spoilers abound so don’t read if you haven’t watched. Well, feel free and read if you want but no complaining afterwards.

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania XII’s Best Matches: Results

If only I could find an 80-minute video of Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels; enjoy this contest instead, from my favorite video game. Then check out what that weirdo Vince McMahon continuously refers to as a Hollywood Backlot “Bra.” Creep.
