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

st_-james-gateAfter starting the Sippy Time Beer column a little more than a year ago, I have wanted to do a special on my visit to the Guinness Brewery way back in 1997. I’m not sure what threw me off last year but this year got tossed out the window by going to see my lady’s niece in a Tae Kwondo competition in Cincinnati on Saturday and by doing house work from 10 AM until 9 PM yesterday. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll still be typing next year so that gives me another chance to relive one of my favorite beer related moments. Let’s roll.

Tonight is going to be crazier than I expected. My buddy Ken came up to watch Raw for a non-wrestling perspective on our OHPA podcast. We will also have a guest host for a regular wrestling podcast. We get started with the #OccupyRaw movement. HHH starts off in the ring. Batista just loves skinny jeans. He is not happy with Trips decision. Randy Orton makes a quick appearance. HHH wonders if DB is in their heads. Dave & Randy argue. Batista wants this to be fixed. HHH flips out on everyone. HHH gets the shot at Mania if he beats Daniel Bryan. I’m pretty sure Eric advocated that. He comes around as often as the Groundhog and he’s just as accurate.

The Real Americans  have to wrestle the Usos again because the tag team division has been decimated recently. Jack Swagger starts against Jimmy. Jey gets to continue the beat down. Cesaro gets in. He gets to be beat upon too. Swagger gets in again. Jimmy gets the luke warm tag. Whisper in the Wind only gets two. We the People are in control at the break. Swagger Bomb gets a  hidden tag by Cesaro.  Swagger gets back in though. Jey and Cesaro come in. Jey gets the better of it. Super Samoan Drop only gets a two count. Swagger saves Cesaro. Swagger gets  taken out. Cesaro super upper cuts Jimmy. Neutralizer for the win. They still have a problem on the big stage, right? I may have to watch WWE Slam City. I don’t think I’ll be able to stick with it.

The Shield and Kane get a review then a promo with each other. Kane wants a united Shield by his side. Can I count on you? Seth Rollins gives a weak answer. Roman Reigns steps up. They act nonplussed after he leaves. Hornswoggle gets interrupted by Bad News Barrett. What is up with Hornswoggle’s hairdo? I love the continued insinuations that Mitchell Cool is an alcoholic comments. Sheamus is sporting a rugby jersey. Glad JBL explained that. (Next Day Note: What a paragraph of nothing happening. The promo was the big segment in this block and it was kind of boring.)

Titus O’Neil is sporting a red goat, hat and tie. Christian is on the head set. Sheamus clotheslines  O’Neil outside. He continues the attack on the outside. Titus finally takes control. Impressive looking overhead slam. Between the announcers and my company, it;s tough to concentrate. O’Neil picks on Hornie. O’Neil tosses Hornie but Sheamus catches him. Hornie is used as a lawn dart. Clubbin. Brogue Kick wins it. O’Neil better get used to losing in the singles division. Sheamus is joining the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. Christian attacks Sheamus. Killswitch on the outside. I’m digging Christian these days.

Stunt Granny Conversation: The Walking Dead – Season 4 – The Grove

Walking-Dead-The-Grove

Kevin: There was some rough stuff in The Walking Dead last night.

Jeremy:  So, um, that was a lot of fun.

Kevin:  Yeah, this half season has been a real cheer ’em set of episodes.
Jeremy:  They answered a lot of questions with this episode as it pertained to feeding the walkers and dissecting the rabbit. Seemed like a cop out but it worked as it pertained to Lizzie being cuckoo.
Kevin:  I remember our speculation last year for who exactly was at fault for the mice and the killings and we got firm answers to both of those questions. And wow, Lizzie was off of her rocker. Wouldn’t you expect that more out of kids in a way? We’ve seen plenty of adults go batty but not many kids.
Jeremy:  I watched the replay and on second view the girl was so broken. She didn’t understand why Carol was upset when she killed her sister. All she said was she was sorry for pointing a gun at her. It sounds like she was this way before she was introduced to the audience.
Kevin:  It does seem like she was already which is weird considering how big of a plot point it was. Wouldn’t you want to explore that a little more or was the mystery the only reason to go that route?
Jeremy:  I figure having her world fall apart with walkers and then parents being murdered or eaten by walkers would do it. he breakdown was enough for me. I was openly hoping both kids got killed off. They were both so annoying at the beginning of episode.
Kevin:  I wasn’t rooting for them to die but I wasn’t buying the gigantic differences in the children in how they handled it. And why exactly is Carol wanting the not crazy one to shoot a deer? I understand teaching her to kill zombies but there’s no need for her to take out a deer at 8.
Jeremy:  I was lost on that at first but then she was trying to show her that you can and have to in some way kill something that is alive. It was about survival at that point. She figured out the walker part so that was the next step. her hippie attitude towards things was infuriating. You lost flower child , get on with it.

Stunt Granny Audio: OHPA 2

Ken & Kevin are back for another week of cherry picked topics. They kick off the show by talking about twenty dollar bills and Andrew Jackson. How did Jackson get on the twenty dollar bill? What was his job before becoming president? Did that lead to some of his decisions while in the White House? What exactly were his decisions in the White House that makes some people want to pull Jackson off of the twenty? The article suggests putting Harriet Tubman on the twenty which leads to the question, how many non-Presidents are on dollar bills? Are other famous historical figures more popular on coins? Ken & Kevin move from famous heads on bills to headers in soccer. How dangerous are they? Did research into them start with the National Football League’s recent round of concussion related problems? The main point of the article was to stop children to heading the ball. What’s an appropriate age to allow people to head the ball? Will that save players from suffering from CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy? Would it be possible to ban headers from the professional game if the links the study talks about become too strong? The third random topic of the week was about the bit coiner inventor finally being found after years of being anonymous. How much is he worth? How much of it is he spending? How easily did the reporter find the inventor when he was so well known amongst a bunch of snoops online? Kevin starts to wrapping up the show by asking Ken three questions from WWE Trivia Mania. Kevin then wraps it up by picking his Sippy Time Beer of the Week. Click on the link below to figure out how to ruin your liver like him!
