    If it was me, I’d had enough wrestling, had enough college, had enough Covid and ready to move on with life.

    Yes. The Cyrillic 'X' I was referring to is pronounced a lot like Latin 'H'

    3 pt takedown by Ayala
    Commentators were saying a TD by Ayala wouldn't be enough to matter. Scoreboard & BTN guys both wrong. Didn't matter, Malik ended it quickly afterward.

    Thank you for mentioning that.  I checked and I also have it (just on my tablet, not on my tv box).  I never checked those higher number channels.  Does this mean I have to say something good about Spectrum?
    Anyway, thanks again I'll be watching tonight!!

    Please replace "baby boomer" with "old fart".  That is much less offensive to me.

    I just noticed that I have the ACC Network as part of my cable tv package (Spectrum/Charter).  They show it scheduled for 7:00 pm tomorrow.

    Hey, we're all "potentially dangerous".  If we weren't, car ins companies wouldn't exist.  Some are just more "potentially dangerous" than others.  Before anyone asks, I have no stastical data on this, just the eye test.

    Flip a coin to decide who is red and who is green.  One buck per match.  I did red/blue with a total stranger at an OTT.  Lucky ba$turd robbed me of 3 dollars.

    BerniePragle reacted to TBar1977 in Did Cassar beat Steveson 2x, solely because he was taller?   
    Have any of you ever carefully looked at Cassar's hair? Hair product is the real secret.

    BerniePragle reacted to portajohn in Did Cassar beat Steveson 2x, solely because he was older?   
    You are correct that there was only one reason Cassar beat Steveson but it wasn't due to age.  It was because Cassar had the eye of the tiger

    BerniePragle reacted to Wrestleknownothing in Hodge   
    I am saying he will win. I also believe he should win.
    And I am OK with the shift from objective to subjective that has been happening over time (and was blatant last year when for the first time there was both a tie, and no results of the vote released). If it is a purely statistical exercise then you get Ben Askren type decision making. He has admitted seeking out weak competition to increase his pin totals, for example. A purely statistical award also leads to more of the thing we hate the most that shall not be named (rhymes with dhucking).
    But even if you make it purely statistical we do not know how the seven categories are to be weighted. Are there instructions for the voters? Is it equal weighted? Or is quality of competition the category with the highest weight? Or is it pins? etc.
    The other thing that argues against a purely statistical award is that there are voters. Why do you need voters if all we are doing is toting up numbers? The answer is that we are not just toting up numbers. Again, as was made clear last year.

    BerniePragle reacted to klehner in Where is Darmstadt?   
    What's his record at 197?  Hint:  it's 49-6 (with 24 pins, six TFs, and nine majors:  more than a 75% bonus rate), with an injury default (that he was going to get at least a TF in), three NCAA losses (after reaching the semis) with a fractured spine that kept him out the next year, an early season loss his freshman year that he avenged later that year with two majors, and a loss when he had the flu (Whitman).  He destroyed current #8 Pat Brucki the last time they met.  He pinned current #7 Steven Buchanan in the first period.  He majored Willie Miklus (with over six minutes of riding time).  He beat Kyle Conel (who took 3rd at NCAAs that year).  He beat Shakur Rasheed.  He was ranked #3 before the NCAAs were cancelled (which means he was "AA" in both of the seasons in which he competed).
    While Cardenas has a chance to be elite, Darmstadt was, by every measure, elite at 197.  No way that a healthy Darmstadt loses to Cardenas, sorry.  There's a reason that everyone started taking neutral against him, and him taking top against them.  The stuff he pulled made him one of the most enjoyable wrestlers to watch.
