It’s WineWife’s birthday today, so forgive me if I don’t hang out with you fine folks this evening.

Also, it’s “Star Wars Day”, because ‘May the Fourth be with you’, which requires a slight lisping of the voice to make work that would have gotten you called quite the names back in my high school days. And probably beat up a little bit, because the 80s. Having been called them, I know of which I speak.

But, in honour of the event,


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Blue Jackets at Bruins – 7:00PM | NBC / CBC
    • Avalanche at Sharks – 10:00PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Warriors at Rockets – 8:30PM | ABC
  • MLB:
    • Athletics at Pirates – 10:00PM | FS1
  • NCAA:
    • Women’s College Beach Volleyball: NCAA Tournament – 6:00PM | ESPN2
      • From Gulf Shores, AL
  • Fútbol:
    • Liga MX: Tigres UANL vs. Guadalajara – 7:55PM | UNI
    • Tijuana vs. Puebla – 9:55PM | FS1
  • Boxing:
    • Top Rank Boxing on ESPN – 10:00PM | ESPN
      • Main Event: Beterbiev-Kalajdzic (light heavyweights)

Other stuff:

  • SNL – Adam Sandler / Shawn Mendes – 11:30PM | NBC / Global
  • Sundance – “Platoon” – 9:00PM
  • Showtime
    • “Full Metal Jacket” – 6:30PM
    • Best in Sex: 2019 AVN Awards

I think I know what will occupy the sports intermissions.

And just so we’re clear, this is the best Triumph bit:

Don’t @ me.

Does the NBA not have any rules anymore? These fuckers are shifting the pivot foot and double dribbling all over the place. This, and lack of defense, is why I stopped watching the NBA years ago.

And who can forget Star Wars: Darth Maul II: GI Joe. It’s funny that the only memorable movie where Ray Park is actually recognizable as himself is the one where he doesn’t do awesome ninja shit (Toad in X-Men)

Ian Scott McCormick

Real talk: The MCU has rendered Star Wars obsolete. They deliver everything Star Wars pretends to be (a sprawling universe filled with diverse characters) and falls short of (95% of the franchise is just the Skywalker family and/or some mention of The Force). Say what you want about the problems with any various MCU film, when is the last time you were swept away by a Star Wars film? Has it happened in the past 30 years? Because the only ones that have done anything for me since Empire were Rogue One and Solo, and those are considered the bonus movies. And were prequels that they can’t really build off of. Other than that they’ve just been telling some variation of the same story for the past 40 years.

I actually have yet to watch Solo. I don’t have any problems with the new movies. In fact, I quite like them despite Twitter’s best efforts, but holy fuck one a year is too much for Star Wars.

Ian Scott McCormick

I told myself “I’m not watching Solo. No more prequels, and one of the main reasons we like Han Solo was because we don’t know anything about his mysterious past.” I wrote MANY comments regurgitating that very same point. And whoops, it was actually the good one 🤷‍♂️.
Meanwhile the prequels were God awful, I don’t care what the contrarian Internet has to say, Ep 7 was fan service porn, and Ep 8 was a slapstick comedy for about 30% of the movie for some reason, combined with a healthy dose of “Who the fuck cares about Finn and Rose?”

Donald Glover is great in it, but it’s otherwise forgettable and passable.

Ian Scott McCormick

The jokes work and the action is there. The plot is pretty clean. The characters have enough depth to not be called one note. And there weren’t many cases of characters doing dumb things to move the plot along. It’s a good movie.
That’s a hell of a lot better than episodes 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8.

Welp, WWE’s going back to Saudi Arabia, and the bigger US indies are falling over themselves to replicate their shitty behavior, so it looks like I’m down to *checks list* DDT Pro, the land of dick magic and kayaks.
This is not a DDT Pro gif, but I just found out this is a thing now and it needs to be shared.

If Episode 1 was just the Darth Maul bits during Duel of the Fates, it would have been the 3rd best Star Wars

I haven’t seen that much controversy over a horse race since Frank T. Hopkins had his alleged story made into a Viggo Mortensen movie.
