Happy Saturday Everyone!

I’m away for the weekend so Sunday and Monday’s threads will be a little bare bones, but we’ll be back to normal on Tuesday. I’m off down south to see Everton against Brentford. It’s my first ever visit to Brentford, and if their impressive performances continue whilst Everton continue to be mince then it might be the last time in a while that I get to go there.

I caught Rampage from last night and enjoyed it. It’s a very easy to watch show, although it definitely feels like it’s the Thunder to Dynamite’s Nitro these days (albeit it’s a good Thunder at least). AEW has a stacked enough roster that they can load up both shows, but I also get that they probably want to reserve the stronger stuff for Dynamite as it’s the flagship. At least the show is fun to watch.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is Black Friday, which is annoyingly something we seem to have inherited from North America here in the UK. Our big “sales” day was always Boxing Day on the 26th of December, but I guess the shops over here saw another pie they could stick their fingers into meaning we now have to suffer Black Friday as well.

If you are out at the shops today then please spare a thought for those unlucky enough to be working retail jobs, as they’re going to be rushed off their feet to begin with and have no say as to things like price and stock, so any anger directed at them is both unpleasant and utterly pointless.

As someone who served a few years in the trenches on consecutive Boxing Day’s at an electronics store whilst in his teens, I know just how horrible it can be during this time of year, so please be kind to those retail workers you encounter today because they’re ultimately the ones that suffer the most so that you can get 30% off a surround sound system or a new TV (outside of those people who work in the sweat shops that make some of these things to begin with of course, but you know what I mean)

Basically, don’t be a jerk today if you’re out shopping

Happy Friday Everyone!

Well, I haven’t bought a Call of Duty game in a long while and the recent revelations about Activision certainly hasn’t increased my desire to play the most recent one either. I think it’s been getting pretty middling reviews and sales haven’t been great this past week, so hopefully those chickens are finally coming home to roost for that company and Bobby Kotick in general.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

England have officially qualified for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar next year after treating San Marino how The Road Warriors used to treat a couple of geeks on Worldwide back in the 80’s. I’m not sure if they can go all the way in the tournament (probably not) but it’s been a mostly calm procession to the tournament. Here’s hoping both Wales and Scotland can still qualify as well!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Sound the “Contemporary song that Mike actually knows and likes” klaxon, as I’ve been listening to “Spit of You” by Sam Fender recently and really enjoy it

The Hangman has been belted, so I guess my new thing will have to be KEEP THE HANGMAN BELTED

Yeah, that one doesn’t really work. I think we can all accept me dropping that particular gag going forward now

Leave the memories alone
