Yesterday we had a fun episode of the STP-CAST! We had Nick Fleehart on the show…Nick is a part of a hockey tournament that travels across the U.S. and Canada called the Draft Tournament. This is an awesome concept of a tournament where you sign up…and spend a weekend with fellow hockey players. You spend Friday night getting to meet…cough DRINK cough…with the other players and then draft a team that you will play with all weekend. They are coming to Bremerton in June (19th-21st)…get more info at www.DraftTournament.com
I am planning on playing so it would be awesome if we get a bunch of listeners to play as well…skill level doesn't even matter…they will make sure all the teams have a healthy balance of all skill levels…this is more about having a blast, boozing, and friendly competition! Plus…they make some crazy looking jersey's that you get to keep. They do different themes…for example, they were in Toronto last weekend and so it was a Don Cherry theme. All of the jersey's were made to look like his colorful suits that Don wears on Hockey Night In Canada! Check them out!
Listen to the STP-CAST…not only do we have Nick on the show, but we chat with Windowpane about their free show at Studio 7 this Saturday, and we get a re-cap from our boss Sgt. Hairclub, who was there!
I finally got around to watching some of Saturday Night Live with The Rock…man that dude is just plain awesome. I have to thank Thee Ted Smith for raving about this particular sketch that they did that as a wrestling fan, I absolutely LOVED!
I thought this bit was great too…and as silly as it was, I have to say…I would totally go see this movie!!
Yes…it was that good. It was definitely the greatest Wrestlemania of my adult life…possibly ever. It’s tough to compare it to the early ones as I was just a kid back then and not nearly as critical as I am now. I might not havce been super pumped about some of the endings, as I would have loved to have seen Sting win his match and Bray Wyatt win his…but wins and losses are not the be all end all in sports entertainment. Every match was full of great entertainment…they told incredible stories in the ring. There wasn’t one bad match! Props to the WWE and all of their Superstars for putting on an awesome show.
Speaking of props…Very cool of the WWE for showing love to JBLM!
The whole weekend was great… I LOVED how the WWE Network covered the entire weekend, their “red carpet” coverage was doner better than any awards show, and I have a new found love for Maria . I have always dug her, but when she was chatting with “The American Dream”, Dusty Rhodes, and busted into his famous “Hard Times” promo…she cemented herself as one of the cooler celebs out there!
The Hall Of Fame ceremony was long, and I know some complained about that…but I was OK with that. These inductees did years of damage to their bodies, and are getting one night to be in the spotlight again… I think that’s awesome, and give them every second they want to share their thoughts.
The highlight was Daniel Bryan… I am stoked that we get to call him our own (he’s from Aberdeen), as he gave an incredible induction speech for Conner Michalek – AKA Conner The Crusher. Who is Conner? He was a young boy that loved wrestling and sadly passed away due to cancer. During the speech…Daniel spoke from the heart…. Click HERE to read more about his speech and to watch the speech.
Here is a very cool video that the WWE recently aired about Conner…
I had some friends over for the party…Castle was there…doing work in the kitchen and providing some great commentary…
This weatherman is a man after my own heart! A weatherman in Boston named Pete Bouchard was talking about how Mars and Venus were visible the other night…he also mentioned another planet. Check it out!
So Wrestlemania 31 is this Sunday…and all of the wrestlers have been doing a bunch of media to promote the Super Bowl of Wrestling! Including John Cena…who was HILARIOUS on Jimmy Kimmell! If you missed it…check it out:
Did you know that Thee Ted Smith and I are doing a podcast? It’s called the Mega Cast, and we just got a great tweet that sums up the most recent episode…
This weekend is the Super Bowl of wrestling – WRESTLEMANIA! I am so excited for it…and even more excited because I was able to chat with “The New Face Of Fear” – Bray Wyatt! It was fun talking to Bray about the evolution of his character!
Check out the full episode of the STP-CAST to hear our picks for WM31, and more!
The Mariners just released their new set of commercials. if you aren't familiar with what they do...every year they make a batch of commercials that are creative and funny. I have to say that this year 's are the best yet! It's fun seeing these guys in a light-hearted environment...and for some, wearing metal inspired wigs!
This is a great one.... features Nelson Cruz and Logan Morrison discussing Fernando Rodney's "flying arrow"...
I got a kick out of this one...especially Manager Lloyd McClendon's part...
This one stars King Felix...and a...uh...mime?!?
Finally...good luck getting this song out of your head...
Just based on these commercials...Tom Wilhelmsen has quickly become one of my favorite personalities on the team. We need to get him on the show one of these days! Not only for his metal stylings in these commercials, but I read an interview with him where he was asked if he has a favorite restaurant or bar in Seattle...and his response: "All of ‘em! Whichever ones don’t run out of beer."
Plus, Tom also likes to jam out to "Turn Down For What":
I am getting more and more stoked for the Mariners this year....I can't wait to go to some games!
Sometimes I have to wonder about people. Yesterday there was a rumor that Michael Bennett of the Hawks requested a trade. Just reading the headlines I immediately thought that there is no way. This morning we read that both the Seahawks and the NFL denied these rumors. It’s amazing how one tweet by one “reporter” could cause waves like this…
Per multiple sources, Michael Bennett is seeking a trade to Atlanta and a new contract.
What’s even more amazing are the so-called “fans” that are quick to bash Bennett for something that hasn’t even been confirmed.
I’m not one of those people that trash other fans, or get mad that the Hawks are attracting a new fan base thanks to their success…in fact I LOVE that the team is getting more and more popular… BUT … if you are one of those “fans” to trash a player based on a rumor, you are an idiot.
Here are some of the things I read…
What a jerk
As a 'hawks fan, I say let him go.
Sheesh does Bennett dislike Jimmy Graham that much?
Wow. What an ass****.
Good…we don’t need him!
I can’t imagine what life is like for people like that…jumping to conclusions before any factual information is presented to them.
It’s been a while since my alter ego, Steve Tomatoes, has made a review…I fixed that this morning…
Today we thought we learned a fun trick that you can impress your friends with while celebrating St. Patrick’s Day…aka. …Drinking.
There's a YouTube video floating around that shows how to get the cap off a beer bottle using nothing but a sheet of paper. Here's what you do . . .
1. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom. Then fold it in half long-wise three times, until it's long and thick (if you giggled when reading "thick", apparently you are at the same level of maturity as I am).
2. Now fold THAT in the middle, to turn it into a "V" shape.
3. Hold the bottle steady, put the "V" part under the cap, and pop it off.
Well I tried it this morning…either the bottle cap I worked with was glued on or the paper I used wasn’t strong enough…but I wasn’t able to make it happen. Hell...I failed miserably!
Over the weekend Thee Ted Smith and I attended the WWE Live event at the Key Arena…what a great time! Before the event we recorded a podcast (The Mega Cast) …and yes…we decided to wear matching shirts with the MegaCast logo on it.
There is nothing odd about two grown men wearing shirts with our heads super imposed over the Hulkster & Macho Man!
Our buddy Doug Benson is the man…we always love having him on the show, and I love how he gives us props with his fashion choices. I have seen hyim live a couple times, and he will wear one of our show’s T-shirts…and recently on his awesome show “Getting High With Doug”, he was wearing the BJ Shea “Happy Family” T-Shirt. Check it out!
I especially love this because I did the “artwork” on this shirt!
You can still buy this shirt at the KISW Rock Shop by clicking HERE!
Here is that episode of GDWH…
Last night my beer league hockey team, the Tacoma Donkeys, had a big win…and celebrated it with a couple drinks… OK… more than just a couple…
