Atomic Drops: WRESTLEMANIA 29: I’m Gonna Get Involved In a Three-Way If I Can

WrestleMania 29WrestleMania 29 (2013) – MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, NJ) – Main Event: WWE Championship: Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson vs. John Cena.

This was not a good night, and I’m not even talking about all of the nonsense involved with the WWE overselling their servers, resulting in me and apparently everyone else who bought the PPV stream through WWE.com getting totally hosed by a stream that broke down multiple times. At first, I was on a 15-minute delay, and then I ended up on a 2-hour delay after the stream was “fixed,” but started the event over, with no ability to watch the event live. I ended up having to watch the first three matches a second time and knew the result of almost every event afterwards. When you buy the stream it appears you get to watch the event as many times as you want for 24 hours, so…

Communication Breakdown – Episode 28: Simpsons & Stuff

d6dd532c0c145e3fc37f17d994332d42

You may know of Chris Slater from his work on his Slater’s Signature Finisher column on the site. Or maybe you’ve run across his blog. Or maybe, unlike me, you’ve met him in real life. Either way, Communication Breakdown is his endeavor into the podcasting world, and even after being on an episode, I’m kicking myself that it took this long for me to feature his podcast on the site. Sorry Chris. – Kelen

Episode 28 of the podcast is a quick one this week. I talk about the recent season premiere of “The Simpsons” and look at some of my favorite episodes from the 26-year history of the show. I talk about the crossover episode with “Family Guy” and give my thoughts on that. And then I talk about some other stuff going on in my life. It’s a fun time.

Uneducated Guesses About the 2014 MLB Playoffs: Division Series

Wild Card Game - Oakland Athletics v Kansas City Royals
You may recall the time that I attempted to predict the 2013 NFL Playoffs. I can’t do that here. I know some players, but I really haven’t watched enough baseball to even sound like I have any idea of what I’m talking about. And considering that I should have posted this Monday, I’m definitely late. But before I get to my 110% guaranteed guesses*, I have to say one thing:

The Wild Card Game is some scary $%^# right? Teams used to have a cushy, 7 game series if they won the Wild Card. Now winning the Wild Card doesn’t mean anything other than the fact that you may get to play 163 games that year. I like it. And I don’t care if this is the third year of the Wild Card Game, the people need to know what I think!

American League

#1 Los Angeles Angels v. #4 Kansas City Royals: I don’t like the Angels. They think they’re the new Yankees or something. And I really like the feel good story of the Royals getting into the playoffs for the first time since I was 2. Royals in 5.

#2 Baltimore Orioles v. #3 Detroit Tigers: I personally feel like the Tigers are choke artists in the postseason in recent years. And that Baltimore team is no slouch. Orioles in 4.

National League

#1 Washington Nationals v #5 San Francisco Giants: The Nationals fought hard for the #1 seed in the NL. But they’re playing the 2010 and 2012 World Series Champions.Not yet Nats. Giants in 5.

#2 Los Angeles Dodgers v #3 St. Louis Cardinals: The Dodgers are the Clippers of the baseball world when it comes to postseason success since 1988, at least compared to their LA counterparts (the Angels won it all in 2002). I think their luck is changing though thanks to one word: Kershaw. Dodgers in 5.

* – DO NOT TRUST MY GUESSES.

Picks have been edited to reflect that the ALCS & the NLCS are both 5 games long, not 7.

Trike House Party Blood Feud: One Game Apart


Week 5 of the college football season finally brought some separation between our two competitors, as the Hyphen chose Oregon State over USC. It was a risky move that didn’t pay off, as the Buzz-Saw picked the favored Trojans for his 17th correct pick of the week.

Last week’s results

Week 6 is a crucial week for the Hyphen now, as he doesn’t want to give Asti any more breathing room. As a two time defending Golden Keg Champion, the Buzz-Saw knows what it takes to defend a lead and no one likes playing from behind.

Standings
Boo B Hyphen (Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti):
47-8
Stone Cold Buzz-Saw Killers (Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley): 46-9

I’ll give GOTHAM this – episode 2 is a marked improvement over episode 1.

We’re still a long way from this being a good show, but hopefully we all learned the lesson from Agents of SHIELD that just because something is rotten at first does not mean it will automatically be rotten in eternity. There are fans of all genre entertainment (or fans of everything) that like to do that thing where they choose sides and then fight about it; I’m not sure where…
