Redick Shocks Us All

Last night I met up with the Joe Sports Fan crew at Barney's Pub for a few buckets of bottled beers. We enjoyed our beers and talked (actually we screamed...the heavy metal was LOUD at Barney's last night. LOUD and NOT ENJOYABLE) about the Cardinals, discussed how much Skip Bayless blows, and debated whether the Macho Man's match with Ricky Steamboat (Wrestlemania 3) was his greatest match, or if his match versus the Ultimate Warrior (Wrestlemania 7) was his finest work (the jury's still out on that argument. One for the ages.)

But all the while, I was keeping one eye --my good one-- on the UNC v. Duke game, and some time late in the second half, I thought I saw obvious Dave Matthews Band fan JJ Redick do something. Something which made me happy. "Nah," I thought. "No way did that just happen. These Bud Selects must have roofies in them. I'm seeing things."

Two seconds later, I got a text message from my friend Erin: "Redick just gave a double shocker after his 3."

Yep. It happened.

And for the first time in years, I don't dislike Redick a lot. Only a little bit today.

Also, here is where I would normally make fun of Mizzou for their 26-point loss to 2 and 7 Baylor last night in Waco... But man, I just don't have it in me right now. That was just sad (Although, it is always hard to win on the road in the Big 12... Psyche.)

[sorry for the infrequent postings as of late. i'm currently more than a little preoccupied with other matters, but i'll go ahead and promise you something friday. and lord knows i'm great at keeping promises... double psyche.]

Ultimate Warrior! Ultimate Warior!

Wasn't that the match where the loser had to retire?
 
Yes, and after the Macho Man (er,Macho King at the time)lost to the Warrior he reunited with "the lovely miss Elizabeth" (as Gorilla Monsoon would have said)

There were an amazing amount of redneck tears flowing that night.
 
You gotta go with that wrestlemania 7 match. Either that one or the George the Animal Steel circa '87 cage match on Satuday Night Main Event where Macho's head was bleeding profusely from a debilitating headbutt causing him to be blinded in one eye. Yet he was still was able to drop a crushing elbow from above the top turnbuckle on the animal's face. I think the same match may have happened with him and Bam Bam Bigelow 5 years later.

fuck GEEEary Claxton!

rack that shocker call, great move on j.j's part.
 
Although the Wrestlemania 7 match was excellent, Savage/Steamboat is much better. There was an extremely long build-up towards it, as oppossed to the 2 month build for Savage/Warrior.

Plus, the Wrestlemania 7 match did that crap where they made Warrior invincible. Savage elbow dropped him a few times, and Warrior just kept getting up.
 
That's because the Warrior is invincible.

Seriously.
