Stunt Granny Sports Show #11

Yes indeed it is yet another Stunt Granny Sports Show. Jeremy and Eric2 are back and get right in to the big stories for a change. They discuss the Aaron Hernandez problem. How stupid is this guy? Is it worse t leave a trail of bred crumbs or a trail of chewing gum? Does the color matter? Just how does technology work? Does smashing your cell phone erase history? How happy is Tim Tebow that the spotlight is not on him for a change? Why was Tim Tebow hanging at a bar anyway? Manny Ramirez, remember him? Well he is back with the Texas Rangers on a minor league contract Problem is, um, wasn’t this guy suspended for a hundred games? How did he get around that? Does MLB understand simple arithmetic? Why is it acceptable for Ramirez to return to baseball in the states while MLB is actively pursuing removing layers they have no concrete proof of using P.E.D’s?  There is also some Dwight Howard talk. How much of a surprise is it that he chose not to return to The Lakers? Eric2 has some choice words on the matters wile Jeremy wonders just what is the difference between a zebra and a giraffe. Of course this leads in to a discussion on Giraffe fighting, hence the video. So enjoy.

The Art of Wrestling – Boston Commons

I have mentioned in my blog that the inspiration for John Cena’s shirt was his hometown basketball team, the Boston Celtics. The WWE did a couple of things different with Cena’s shirt. The obvious change is swapping out the leprechaun for John Cena. The WWE failed to due several things that are more subtle with the image swap though. They didn’t allow Cena to serve as the break in the lettering like the above logo. Cena attempts to accomplish this goal by saluting but it’s a half assed attempt to break up the text. You could accomplish the same thing by moving Cena up and to the left. The WWE could have added his trademark jorts to the image to form a break on the bottom part of the circle.

John Cena is not monochromatic, but compared to the leprechaun he is. We have a black hat, pants and shoes all with gold trim and some shamrocks. I know they go with a matching theme but the hat blends into the rest of the logo because it is also green. An easy trick to help out would be a simple outline in black much like Genndy Tartakovsky used in Dexter’s Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls.The WWE didn’t forget about black highlights because they’re used to highlight all of Cena’s physique. Showing the jorts would have also helped to serve as a color difference and would also benefit from a black outline. Use a little more black to make your product look better. On top of those problems, they have a perfectly easy canvas with the world behind Cena to infuse some color. Make the oceans blue and the land green like any map. The use of color doesn’t need to be overwhelming so you could mute those colors to ensure that Cena is still the center of attention.

I’m not even going to bother talking about the back of the shirt since it’s the standard “U (Can’t) M E”. It’s a logo they have used for a while that could use it’s own updating. I do like the continued theme for John Cena of using basic colors for new shirts. They’re easy to see in the crowd and not the standard WWE black shirt with graphic on it. After bashing the shirt, it’s one of the WWE’s better efforts recently. -Kevin

Mustaches are all the rage these days.

Join Dusty and Kevin as they guide you through a vast wonderland of opinionz 4 u. Kevin is distracted this week by the University of Pittsburgh Wanny McStaches blowing the game against Connecticut by not stopping a run they know is coming at them. Dusty is distracted by the Heat losing to the Celtics again. The cru talks about Monday Night Raw, and how boring, predictable and rehashed everything seems. They talk about NXT and how little Michael Cole cares about it. They talk about Mick Foley and his gigantic ego. Dusty fights a sneeze the entire time. Does any of this make for good audio? You need to listen all the way through to find out!
