Stunt Granny Audio Show #247

US-olympic-mens-hockey-team-rosterJeremy & Kevin are back for another week. They start off talking about why Kevin likes the Winter Olympics. I mean, other than the fact that hockey is the main event of this half of the Olympics. Jeremy brings the show to a screeching halt minutes in by talking about “My 600 Pound Life”. As usual, they finally get around to talking about wrestling. This week’s main topic is the athleticism being shown in the WWE. Being agile isn’t just for the little guys any more. Luke Harper is Jeremy’s main example but doesn’t forget to include Bray Wyatt. Does Erick Rowan get into this grouping or is he being protected too much? The Wyatts took on Cody Rhodes, Goldust & Rey Mysterio? We know that Cody can go in the ring but are the two old guys fitting into this new mold? Were they a look into the WWE’s future during their heyday? Did Cody really need to do the moonsault off the top of the cage? The Wyatts are also ready to take on the Shield at the Elimination Chamber. Roman Reigns is showing off some serious in ring skills that are being highlighted by the Superman Punch and the Spear. Is it more incumbent on the victim than the hitter to make that move look good? These moves look good but what is Kevin’s favorite move that Reigns does? How good is Seth Rollins? Good enough to not talk about his in ring skills? And where does Dean Ambrose fill in with this theme? And how do Jeremy & Kevin squeeze John Cena into this conversation?

I Still Don’t Like NHL Owners

the-rich-guy

Because I’m a personal seat license (PSL) holder for the Columbus Blue Jackets, I have been getting e-bombed immediatly after the signing of the new collective bargaining agreement just past midnight last Sunday. I paid $100 to be a PSL holder and the license is spread over my two seats at half a season each. Prior to now, being a PSL holder has given me some great opportunities to buy tickets to concerts and events earlier and cheaper than normal. At this moment though, it’s only reinforced my hate for NHL owners.

The first thing they did was apologize for omitting half of a season. Nothing specialized in there about the Jackets losing the All Star game and trying to regain it. That event was the only reason I upgraded from a quarter of a season package to a half season package and got the PSL. I know they can’t guarantee it coming back because it’s a decision from the NHL but they need to promise that they will try as hard as possible to bring the game back. It’s the only way I continue to get the PSL and half season package. It’s too much money.

The second thing they did was promise that they have upgraded their team in the off season. If you go to ESPN, check out their transactions. Their idea of upgrading is trading Rick Nash to the New York Rangers for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and Tim Erixon. The upside to this trade is that they upgraded more than one line which is necessary. The downside is that they traded away the only superstar that has ever existed for the Jackets. Their other highlight is pulling in John Davidson as President of Hockey Operations. It’ll be good to have a baby sitter for (incompetent) GM Scott Howson but that won’t make up for a decade of bad drafts and worse trades under all of their GMs. There is still a long road for any GM to recover from this predicament.

The third thing in this group of emails was the generous discounts that they offered us. These offers are why I hate the NHL owners still. I was granted two free tickets because I have two tickets in my package. I get two free tickets for any game. That was a good start, give your most valuable fans free stuff. Then came the offers that lined the owners pockets. Between now and the end of the month, we are given 25% off of merchandise. My proposal: Have fun with the Lockout and make the offer good for 113 days, the same length as it. This is a money grab so that the owners can make up money they lost during the Lockout. Buy our merchandise cheap in two weeks to help make up for the deficit.
