Dudleyville Bracket


#1 President Obama vs. #4 Sylvester Stallone

Better Prom Date - Honestly, this one isn't even fair. Sly as a prom date is alright, despite the fact that some of your friends may not be able to understand him. However, walking into prom with the secret service clearing the way and the President of the United freaking States next to you? Winning! (Obama 1-0)

Most Likely to Win a Grammy/Oscar - Well, since Sly is an actor, easy win, right? But wait just a minute, have you seen his movies as of late? Oh alright, we're being too hard on the man responsible for Rocky. Sorry President Obama, you're not picking up one of those awards anytime soon. (Tied 1-1)

More Interesting Interview - One has a speech the entire world waits to hear, while the other doesn't. In fact, the other we just recite lines from a character he played years ago (yes, anther Rocky reference). POTUS is moving on! (Obama wins 2-1)



#6 Daniel Bryan vs. #7 Theo Huxtable

Better Prom Date - A date with D-Bry would be very cool. He could lead the entire party in "YES YES YES" chants. But that'll get old rather quickly. Plus, Theo, as you know from the Cosby Show, is a pretty good dancer and is always down for a party. (Theo 1-0)

Most Likely to Win a Grammy/Oscar - Well, if we're talking Theo (and not Malcolm Jamaal Warner), it's pretty hard to imagine him doing so. After all, he thought he would be a model, a rapper, and then an actor, and was good at non of them. At least Daniel Bryan has some acting elements in his craft, and while just as far away from an Oscar or a Grammy as Theo is, he's closer. (Tied 1-1)

More Interesting Interview - Daniel Bryan isn't one we all want to hear speak. He's your common outdoors man who just leads us all in "YES" chants. However, Theo has always been entertaining. Who wouldn't want to hear from him? Another upset here as Cliff and Claire's kid is moving on. (Theo wins 2-1)

Gotham City Bracket


#1 Beyonce vs. #5 Carrie Underwood

Better Prom Date - Wow. This might be the toughest clash criteria - ever! A guy can't lose in this one even if he tried. However, you have to go with Bey. She's power, she's fame, and she just has the star power. Carrie Underwood isn't bad, but walking into prom with Beyonce, that's epic. (Beyonce 1-0)

Most Likely to Win a Grammy/Oscar - Again! Jees. Great clash here. The obvious choice here is Beyonce, but logic would dictate otherwise. Underwood sort of controls the country scene, and has less competition, or even on her level, than Beyonce does. Plus, Underwood is a better actor. Have you seen Obsessed? Woof! (Tied 1-1)

More Interesting Interview - It's official, this is the closest clash of all-time. Underwood, is great, and the defending DP Clash champion, but her reign is over. She gives more of her personality to the public, but Beyonce is well...Beyonce. She is star power. Thus, more interest. (Beyonce wins 2-1)



#6 Richard Sherman vs. #7 Mike Francesa

Better Prom Date - Richard Sherman is a good looking guy. Francesa...hmmmm, not so much. And who wants to go to prom with an arrogant dude like Francesa? This is easy. (Sherman 1-0). 

Most Likely to Win Oscar/Grammy - OK, Francesa isn't going to attempt anything outside of his cushy radio gig. So there is no chance there. And who knows, with Sherman's wits and personality, entertainment might be in his future. (Sherman wins 2-0)

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/7/17

3 Up 1. Captured Girls Return - The evil that is the gross, disgusting, group that is Boko Haram released 82 of the 300-plus they kidnapped over a year ago. Many are still missing, but giving these girls a chance at life away from the clutches of this group deserves the plus this week.  2. Dear White People - I got around to checking out this show on Netflix and boy was I happy to do so. DWP is VERY thought provoking, truthful, honest, authentic, and yes, very funny. And it's a great show, visually. Can't wait for season two.  3. LeBron James - Because most of us are just waiting for the eventual Cavs/Warriors NBA Finals, we're losing sight of really how awesome LeBron James is. The dude really is the difference maker in this league. It's quite astonishing to think about. The Cavs are rolling, and he's just toying with opponents.  3 Down 1. Trumpcare - Look, I'm not going into this full on. But it just seems to me that this administration is

Bound For Glory 2020 Review - If A Tree Falls And No One Hears It...

Television in 2020 has been weird. Check that. It's super weird.  In a year marred by pandemics, death, catastrophe, and overwhelming heartbreak, the viewing habits of everything in entertainment has changed - wrestling included. Ratings are down. No one respects appointment television - and heck, there is even less need for the idea of watching content through said television. Where am I going with this on a Wrestling pay-per-view review? Come on, get to the point, bro!  I haven't been shy in communicating my severe disappointment in professional wrestling (namely WWE) during this pandemic ( Pro Wrestling in COVID Times ). When many entertainment options were off the table, most notably that of sports, pro wrestling had an extreme opportunity to give fans something different, and even capture casual fans.  Unfortunately, they didn't. And a large part of my growing disinterest with pro wrestling has been because of the WWE, and to a much lesser extent, AEW.

What is it about?  A group of college baseball players navigate their way through college, taking advantage of their personal freedoms and learning to navigate their sudden unsupervised life in the 1980's.  Who is in it?
