well MLB isn't the only sport with opening day in the next 12 hours... Lets go Edge!

There will surely be spoilers here, so be forewarned you west coast guys...

I know this has been done - but for the 10 of us - Where are you living now? I am up here is Jersey now...

tough choice...

I went with the one on my team - I need her to get more exposure. But if I could choose 1 girl - for one night - it still would be Torrie.

I hope Foley beats the crap out of Orton and takes that belt from him. And I could see that happening. Then maybe Orton beats Benoit/HBK for the title and HHH gets jealous and those 2 go to war.

Posey 35 footer to push Double OT and Sura almost with the triple double...

Sucks for me if Edge doesn't actually wrestle til the PPV. Though he will likely get the miraculous "comeback win."

HHH has put people over before, most recently at Wrestlemania. But USUALLY there are no belts on the line, like tonight. I remember Spike Dudley, RVD, and even Taka Michinoku having fantastic matches with him when they were newcomers.

HHH has been almost respectable with letting some guys actually pin him the last few weeks. Gives the WWE hope of heading in the right direction.

Congrats Shelton and whoever drafted him.

those Grizzlies highlights are on now!

wanted to show you this post from November from a guy in my Yahoo Public Hoops league... he is currently 11th out of 12...
this was hilarious then - and funnier now.

"Alot of people said they were sure wins, while others said who they thought had good drafts. Yet, my team wasn't mentioned because i didn't guarentee victory and people evidently don't think i have a good team.

I just wanted to say that I'm #1 in this league without many games having been played. If you think you have a better team then me, you better think again because i defintely don't plan to drop down to #2 or worse even for a day unless someone goes nuts and hits that 82 mark before i'm even at 50. I win these leagues like they are nothing because I know my basketball and winning is contagious and I've had it for more seasons then i can count.

sure sounds like something he would say.

There were a dozen other posts just like it too.. all equally funny. Its been a strange race too - guys in 1st and 2nd just ignored game limits had like 30 point leads - and now us in 3rd and 4th have been chopping off a point or so a day for a couple weeks... its been fun.

Like a guru-rotation or something at the end of the season and watching your WWR go tumbling down.

You know, that is something that I frequently remember to bring up and then subsequently forget about. I'm pretty sure that the original rules as they were written and never changed say that being a guest referee is only worth 2 points. We've been scoring it as 5 points, which would seem much more appropriate. I think we should continue to score guuest-ref spots as in-ring vignettes. If anyone disagrees, then I'll bring it up as a proposal, but really having a guest-ref spot be worth less than an in-ring vignette doesn't make sense to me.

Agreed MITH.

Tree, Benoit and HBK had won, were announced winners, and were celebrating with the belts. This was a VERY late reversal by Johnny Nitro, saying Flair was not the legal man in the ring, and the match must continue. This was after a Benoit diving head butt from the top, AND an HBK superkick.

Benjamin/HHH was a well designed match, and hopefully isn't cast aside by management.....as sometimes occurs.

Johnny looked kinda uncomfortable in the one Bischoff backstage vignette (where he was supposed to "find" Edge) I saw, but he definitely looked more buff......he was by far the most athletic TE guy from that season (I watched it a fair amount) so I'm interested to see how he is in the ring.
