Avoiding changing over to Showtime for the main card until the last minute, lest I catch the tail end of a Twilight movie.

psychicdeath99: Avoiding changing over to Showtime for the main card until the last minute, lest I catch the tail end of a Twilight movie.


Being a good dad, I TRIED to watch the first Twilight movie when it came to HBO. Three tries. Gave up. I explained to my daughter that it was horrible AND the theme that a woman is NOTHING without her man was degrading.

She didn't make me try to endure any more...

My picks for the Superbowl were going to be Denver and San Francisco.

Whoops.
 
2013-01-12 09:58:46 PM  
FWIW, I don't like Noons at all but I think he did enough to edge the decision his way.
 
2013-01-12 10:01:11 PM  
I wonder what promotion (or promotions) Showtime will get to fill the Strikeforce void. I hope Invicta gets a contract.

Ah... I had wondered why Mauro wasn't working tonight.

What was the answer to that? I was away.

Both his parents are hospitalized.

Dear guys on TV. Unbutton the bottom button of the coat.
 
2013-01-12 10:09:37 PM  
It's gotta be Ronda or Cyborg-Carano

Helwani says even Couture thought the judges would pick Noons.

Did you hear the guy from ShowSports or whatever's interview with Ariel Helwani this week? It sounds like it may very well happen.

Regarding Noons and Couture, I have a theory that blood--even from illegal or incidental contact--has a very real subliminal effect on specators/judges. I think that may have played a role here. One of the many things that's wrong with the idea of putting too much stock into what the fighters look like afterward. I think it even happens when--for whatever reason--the guy who landed a strike that draws blood gets more blood on him than the guy who is actually cut.
 
2013-01-12 10:17:40 PM  
I think this one could go either way.
 
2013-01-12 10:18:09 PM  
Why is it catchweight?
 
2013-01-12 10:19:58 PM  
Didn't look like that was a kick to the head.
 
2013-01-12 10:20:04 PM  

M0nk3yK!ng: Why is it catchweight?


My guess is the short notice fill in by Herman. They probably cut him some slack on weight.
 
2013-01-12 10:20:44 PM  
Man, these refs aren't warning about grabbing the cages, didn't call the illegal knee and just now didn't step in for the up-kick until the fighter complained.

Do they even know the rules?

That was a takedown.
 
2013-01-12 10:22:28 PM  
Nice sub. I was hoping it would go to two rounds.
 
2013-01-12 10:23:46 PM  
Yeah I guess those kicks kinda did hit him in the face.

I assume that prelim link is no longer active.

It auto-tuned over to the real card.

Also...nice job to the ref who didn't call the first tap.

These refs are terrible tonight. Where's KIMMIE?
 
2013-01-12 10:38:56 PM  
Two first round finishes. Time to play one of the unaired prelims.

Resident Evil music...nice.

I'd let her wrap 6 feet of leg around me whenever she wanted.

I'm at the tail end of about ten days of the flu myself. Just an upper respiratory infection remaining.
 
2013-01-12 10:51:42 PM  
Manhandled!

Jeezus, look away for two seconds, and it's over.

Not by murder.

Haven't had the flu in at least a decade. Kicked my ASS this year. Just won't farking go away. Even working from home, I got this shiat and it just took hold.
 
2013-01-12 10:55:38 PM  
Lol this is hilarious.
 
2013-01-12 10:55:46 PM  
Barnett is a funny guy. I think he might be hiiiiigh.

Yeah. The first four days of this one was spent alternately sweating and shivering, sleeping for three hours, awake for two, sleep 3, up 2, etc.

Don't feel too bad now, but this hacking cough just won't let go.
