    The woman was Alundra Blaze. She won the women's title back in the day and then went to WCW. She took the title with her and threw it in the trash on TV. That was what led Vince to screwing Bret out of the title when he was leaving for WCW because he didn't want to risk a repeat. 

    DiBiase once got Andre the Giant to beat Hogan for the Heavyweight belt and then bought the title from Andre. 

    Basically the bit was a call back to two famous incidents in the past that you didn't pick up on. 

    I don't think 90% of the crowd did either.

    I have noticed that other stores have an increase to prices on home delivery, are the prices the same as in the store on the curb pick up?

    Not at Walmart. We put our order in the night before. We pick our time frame--which is an hour time span. We get an email the next morning telling us if there were any items missing and that the order is ready. We reply on the app we are on the way. When we get in the parking lot, it prompts us to tell them what spot we are in and boom, food is brought out. We have done it dozens of times and it always has been smooth, plus it is free to use.

    Just an observation - the media and even some Dems and even the four Congresswomen engaging in using the language 'the squad' are just falling into Trump's branding. It's something he's been doing since the beginning, creating a false foundation and then opponents or critics engaging in that conversation in the ground assumptions that he has created. 

    these are four individual women, they are not a 'squad'.

    The Media is helping Trump's reelection efforts immensely. Every time they interview THE SQUAD or AOC makes some random statement and they feature it front and center on their sites, it just gives Trump ammo and drives Moderates away. Pelosi is doing all she can trying to keep these four from being the face of the party because she knows it hurts 2020, but these ladies haven't met a camera they didn't like and they are making her job impossible. 

    Right now CNN has a headline with the word Squad in it. They really believe this is a winning strategy.

  4. Just finished picking up groceries at Walmart---I love their order ahead and pick up service. Walmart prices without Walmart people is what I say. Plus it is amazing how much fluff we would end up buying when we physically went in the store. 

    Then it is Pokemon time with my daughter. Followed by grilling and beer drinking tonight and the start of a nine day stay-cation. 

    Life is good!!

    My son and I watched this last night. Holy freaking ***t!!! Excellent. I love anthology horror movies like Trick R Treat and several other 70’s anthology type horror movies (as well as Creepshow of course) and this was some freaky goodness. Great recommendation. 

     

    Highly recommend as well.

    This one was hit or miss for my wife and I. The first two stories really were meh.....but the last story and the end were well done.

    Sanitorium - A group that has a ghost hunting show investigates an abandoned asylum.  Wow, how original, right?  Well, the thing with found footage is that it's not always about an original idea.  Sometimes an old idea can be good if done properly and this is one of those, barely.   The acting and characters aren't great, but what I particularly liked about this one is that it doesn't spend a whole lot of time showing the ghosts do dumb things like opening a door or moving a chair.  When the ghosts manifest, they are menacing from the start.  You really get the sense that this a pissed off, deadly apparition. Worth a rental.  

    Watched this last night with the family.It had its moments I must say. The acting was pretty bad, but it was pretty creepy. My biggest complaint is it felt like a shot for shot rip-off of Grave Encounters. which is a movie we really liked. 


  7. I don't think it will do amazing.

    I mean the original SJ was unique in that it had the blending of animation and real life (ala Who Framed Roger Rabbit).  That was something that brought viewers in even if you were not basketball fans. Now we know SJ2 will be a CGI-fest. Heck tampon commercials have CGI in them--so this is not something new that will wow people. The first SJ franchise brought in 6 BILLION in revenue.

    When SJ came out it was at the height of a player driven NBA. They were celebrating their 50th anniversary. You had Jordan, Barkley, Shaq, a young Kobe. You had the Bulls trying to make history. This was an exciting time for the NBA. Now, the NBA is exciting for another reason--player movement. Don't get we wrong, I am a big NBA fan, so this year is going to be great to watch, but back then everyone could identify Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Dennis Rodman and Magic. How many current NBA stars could the average, non-NBA diehard person identify picture wise, outside of LBJ, Curry, maybe Harden (because of the beard)?  There just isn't that non-fan attraction to this movie.

    Here is biggest thing. MJ vs LBJ.  MJ embraced the Looney Toons role. He was charismatic and easily the most identifiable athlete in history. He was funny and could pull off self-deprecating and do comedy. People liked MJ. Lebron is different. He is an amazing player, but he is not likable. IMO he takes himself way too seriously. Sure he is extremely popular but no where near MJ level.

    I just think this is a big mistake for LBJ to try this. It smells of him following in the footsteps of MJ and he can't. There is only one MJ.

    I have always been a big IV watcher and would scan anything that I caught that appraised as amazing.   I have 640 guys  in my Dex and every one of them has a number and letter next to their name. :nerd:

    With the addition of Shadow Pokemons in this latest update, I am going to have to expand my storage, but I haven't seen one yet. 

    Last weekend the Entei raid was insane here. There were 2500-3000 people gathered downtown around the museum playing. I caught 2 shiny ones. The Mudkip event is this weekend. We have a very active Pokemon community here.  


  9. I have lived in Colorado Springs--now Fountain all my life. My wife and I are the rare natives. We love it here, but I have to tell you the last couple years have really tested our patience. 

    First of all--traffic. I am a very fast driver, but in the past 3-4 years something has happened where I am now the slow guy on the road. The growth of the city has brought so many new people in from other places and all of them seem to need to go 20-30 over the speed limit at all times. My wife is a careful, slow driver and not a day goes by she isn't getting honked at. Last year was a record year for people being killed on our roads and we are set to match/pass it this year.

    Marijuana---yeah, I know everyone is all Wow it is legal--how exciting. The moment it became legal, the number of homeless people in our town exploded 10 fold. You can't go downtown anymore. Every corner has a peddler on it. Crime has gone way up. Illegal grow houses are everywhere.I had one two houses up from me and we are in a nice neighborhood. 

    Weather--last summer our house was destroyed by hail. I mean baseball-softball sized monsters. We had to spend 40 days in a hotel while our house was rebuilt. This year we haven't had them that big, but the last storm broke out all the window effects and sunroof on my Tahoe. My wife's car is like someone took a small hammer to every inch of it. We had zero car payments last year. We now have two. We have been told this is a ten year cycle and we are now in year three. We are not going to replace cars every year.

    Our house has doubled, almost tripled, in value and we have a nice sum built up in equity. I am turning 50 in two days and plan to retire in 3 years. My wife can retire in seven. We have one daughter in college and one a sophomore in HS.  When we retire we are seriously thinking about selling and moving somewhere quiet like Idaho or even Wyoming.  We live in a world of Amazon where anything can be delivered via a simple keystroke. I won't miss all this nonsense.

  10. Basically just hit appraisal and keep anything strong to amazing. Then use Poke Gene (you have to download) to further realize if you want to keep. 

    Still don't have a Groudon--daughter and I tried a raid today with two lower level players---wow, that sucked. 

    Next week the armored Mewtwo come out in raids. Already working on setting up groups to go after this.

    Who says no?

    Denver trades 2020 1st rounder, Malik Beasley, and Will Barton (or Mason Plumlee) to the Grizz for Jae Crowder and Iguodala.

    You are reading my mind, I would love to see Iggy back in Denver. He would be that calming force the 2nd unit needs. I feel Denver was counting so heavily on Porter coming in and making an impact, they sat on their hands in FA. Now with his future (still) up in the air, they need to do something to counter the arms race going on in the West.

    Jalen Rose reports that Kawhi Leonard will likely re-sign with the Toronto Raptors on a two-year deal.

    "What I'm 99 percent hearing is that Kawhi Leonard will be returning to Toronto and signing a two-year contract," said Jalen Rose. "He just completed his eighth season, that's going to put him at 10 years. That puts him in position to get the largest available maximum deal (in 2021)."

    Please let this happen.

    Then Anthony Davis, realizing the train wreck he has brought upon himself, leaves for the Clippers next year and Bron is left on a team with Rajon Rondo, JR Smith, a squad of D-League players and no future draft picks for the foreseeable future. 

    (oh, is my Laker hatred showing :bag: )
