The Older I Get – Falling Down

The Older I Get - Falling Down

I ran across this meme the other day and it really struck me. If you’re not familiar with Falling Down it’s 1993 thriller directed by Joel Schumacher. It stars Michael Douglas as William Foster, a divorced and unemployed former defense engineer. He treks on foot across the city of Los Angeles, trying to reach the house of his estranged ex-wife in time for his daughter’s birthday party. Along the way, a series of encounters, both trivial and provocative, cause him to react … Continue reading

Red Solos at The Annex

Red Solos at The Annex

The last time I added a Beer Shots entry here on the blog I started out the post by saying, “It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry.” That was 14 months ago. Needless to say I’ve not been keeping up my promise to myself to be a better blogger. That said, back again tonight with a pic that… well… just feels right. The last pic was from The Annex and … Continue reading

Bracketology – The Best Wrestling Theme Songs

Wrestling Theme Songs

My buddy Jordan had a tremendous idea. Every March he thinks about building a bracket of the best 64 WWE-NWO entrance songs and advancing them through voting each week of the actual NCAA tourney! He asked me to put together my list. He’s doing the same and he’s got another buddy who’s doing the same. We’re going to pull the three lists together and seed them into the official bracket. We’ve broken our regions out … Continue reading

Elimination Chamber (2018) – Slow Road To Mania

Elimination Chamber 2018

Lots of wrestling on the site lately… what can I say, it’s WrestleMania season and I’m keeping up with my promise to myself to stay more on top of things (and to write more). It sort of shocked me when I looked back and saw just how far behind I am when it comes to PPV recaps. This is the first one I’ve done since Battleground in August and only the second since last year’s … Continue reading

DICK’s Sporting Goods Responds To Parkland

On February 14, 2018, yet another mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed and fourteen more were taken to hospitals. The shooter was 19-year-old Nikolas Jacob Cruz… may he rot in hell.

Official WrestleMania 34 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 34 Logo Square

WrestleMania 34 will be held on April 8, 2018 at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sadly, Pip won’t be joining me this year so it will be Mark and I (and my kids) watching the show. As I’ve outlined earlier this morning I doubt we’re going to make an attempt at the Beeramid this year but I’ve had several questions on if we were going to put our list out this year so here … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 33 Beeramid – The Last Ride?

WrestleMania 33 Beeramid

Father Time is undefeated. He quite literally never loses. At WrestleMania 33 last year we saw what was presumably the final match of The Undertaker’s career (until they decide to roll him out again in the next six weeks in preparation for WrestleMania 34). For over a decade now Pip and I have been building the structure known simply as “The Beeramid” while we watch WrestleMania. Several years back we started to produce our yearly … Continue reading

Get Buckets with the New Uncle Drew Teaser Trailer Um what? There’s an Uncle Drew movie coming? Sure enough it’s on its way hitting theaters this June.
