Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

Too much happening today so we’re going to put this thing up early tonight. RAW is right down the road from me in Tampa but I’m probably going to sit here and watch the Rose Bowl and then the Orange Bowl or go to sleep, whichever comes first.

Or if I get bored with that I’ll watch the new Celebrity Apprentice with Ahhh-nold.

Or if I get bored with that I’ll watch Ronda get knocked out in 48 seconds again.

Keep it Clean!

I hope those that celebrate or are celebrating are having a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and/or Happy Boxing Day!

Usually these Christmas RAW specials either suck or are harmless fun so hopefully it’s the latter. If you need something better than the Cowboys-Lions matchup is a pretty good one. There’s also some college football and college basketball on. I think I’m definitely going to DVR this Ravi Patel documentary on PBS. And there is a Breaking Bad marathon. Otherwise enjoy your post-holiday eating.

And keep it clean!

Happy Holidays Blog O’ Doomers!

Another Monday night and another follow-up RAW episode to another below-average, slightly boring PPV. Last night I realized that they just need to put the strap on Goldberg (or Cena) and just let them roll with it until Wrestlemania or longer if need be. Sometimes a shot in the arm is what’s needed and this boring crop of guys needs an injection.

Otherwise another halfway decent Monday Night football game on between the Panthers and Washington. And there’s other sports on. Probably some Christmas movies too. Maybe you can watch Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern put over Macaulay Culkin or Bruce Willis take out an entire terrorist ward.

Either way.

Hope you all had a great weekend of holiday shopping and watching movies and sports and whatever else you decide to do.

Tonight’s schedule includes a go-home RAW for the upcoming Roadblock Network Special and a pretty damn good MNF game between the Patriots and Ravens that should cut into the RAW rating significantly.

For those looking for a little less violence tonight the original Wizard of Oz is on TNT at 7 p.m. and 9:15 ET. And the two-part finale of The Voice is on.

Enjoy. Keep it Clean!

A little bit of an early start for the thread tonight but that’s ok because it gives you more time to get riled up for the start of a late night RAW. I watched TLC in bits and pieces and my thoughts are fairly aligned with Scott’s and watching the show is the sad realization that the roster is too thin to do much with and they would be wise to start a secondary tag team program to fill out some of the time. The main event was spectacular and I liked the women’s title match all right. Dolph-Miz had a decent match but it wasn’t much different than the other several matches they had. Being good friends they can always carry each other to something watchable.

I enjoyed post-show Talking Smack more and realized that they probably need to do something with Corbin but with heels holding all the titles there isn’t room for him unless he just decides to go into a “mercenary” type role and decides to target Miz or something.

Anyway what else is on TV tonight? Well there’s The Voice and…hey the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is tonight so maybe all of you can have boners for a legitimate reason.

Until then KEEP IT CLEAN!

Hope you all had a nice weekend or if you are in America you had a nice, long holiday weekend.

We’re back on that Monday thing and tonight RAW continues its build to…whatever they are building to right now. I’m guessing it includes a lot of Goldberg, who has just completely drowned out the rest of the roster with a couple of appearances.

As for Monday Night football there’s the Packers, led by miserable family-hating prick Aaron Rodgers, against the Eagles, led by a fan base that boos Santa Claus.

And the Voice is on, but I’m pretty much over that show now.

Anyway, keep it clean!

Between 5,000+ posts in the Survivor Series thread and over 2,500 in the morning thread you guys are clearly talkative or bored today. So here’s your evening thread a little early since I want to shop for groceries this evening.

We’ve got the post-Survivor Series RAW and Oakland-Houston on Monday Night football. There’s a ton of college basketball on as well but I will be keyed in on the PBS “Soundbreaking” documentary since I am a music nerd.

As for the PPV there was nothing really great or offensive on there. Guys just are struggling to create a big match feel or deliver with big match quality. The only thing I did sort of like was the crowd reaction to the 90-second Goldberg-Lesnar match because that crowd wanted to see Goldberg do Goldberg things and he delivered. Hopefully they can follow up with something compelling but I doubt it.

Keep it Clean!

Hope every had a great weekend we’re back for another Monday and let’s see we’ve got the RAW go-home show for Survivor Series along with some silly debate on the Network post show.

There’s also the college basketball tip-off marathon on ESPN2 which means if you want to see Pacific vs. Green Bay at 2 a.m. EST tonight is your night.

And we’ve got the Giants vs. Bengals for Monday Night Football and the debut of “Mars” on the National Geographic Channel…which sadly means the end of all those crappy shows of people slumming it in Alaska during the winter months.

If none of that is what you want then find something else but remember to KEEP IT CLEAN!

Sadly I have no big news or streaming service to offer you guys so here’s a thread for your Monday Night observations. Beyond RAW and the Monday Night Football game between Denver and Houston there is your wide array of shows Monday night shows on and some World Series preview stuff on select channels.

Outside of the norm there is an interesting documentary on PBS in which a videogame programmer and his wife collaborate on a game keyed to their son’s battle with cancer. It’s called Thank You for Playing.

I can’t believe there are some dumbasses in my neighborhood looking for Christmas trees so they could have it up by Halloween. This ruined my day. Not because I hate Christmas, I love opening presents in my jammies and eating cookies without guilt for a day. But I just hate the disrespect given to Thanksgiving (U.S. edition…I know Canadian Thanksgiving happened last week and I hope it was a good one for those celebrating). Why skip over arguably the best holiday on the calendar? Hell I wish I lived closer to the northern border and I’d celebrate Thanksgiving twice. It’s a holiday that’s based around food, sports and food comas. There’s not a better holiday. You might disagree but you’d be wrong.

Anyway RAW is on tonight and I haven’t watched it in a month so I have no clue what’s going on other than about 3-5 people need to move to Smackdown (Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Nia Jax would be my three immediate moves).

MNF is Jets-Cardinals. Dismal matchup but my husband is a die-hard Jets fan so therefore I support the Jets out of marriage and his pain is my pain so I’ll probably be a little salty tonight after he cries himself to sleep.

Cleveland-Toronto Game 3. Go We The North!

Oh yeah, a couple of people said nice things about me and the family staying safe and out of Hurricane Matthew’s way and I want to say thank you for those kind words.

Speak on whatever makes you feel good but KEEP IT CLEAN!
