All things being considered, the past week was a pretty darn good one for The Urban Daddy.
He has the WWE Network.
He found Impact Wrestling.
He gained 8 points in his hockey pool.
The only problem is that there is not enough hours in the day for all of these “events”.
I showed my kids the WWE Network and they cannot quite understand the concept of 24/7.
“Every time I turn to that channel, there is wrestling on…” Yup. For the kids that means they get to see all the wrestler I have been talking about for years, and they get to see the wrestlers who belong to the wrestling figures they play with.
For me, it means no more reality TV when I morph into The Urban Daddy at night time. No more Kardashians, no more Honey Boo Boo, nothing to do with fixing household problems, no more cooking competitions, and no more I can’t believe I was… (pregnant / fat / thin / dead / an alien / a boy / a girl…)
As the Miz would say, “Quiet on the set. Quiet on the set!” AWESOME!
As for Impact wrestling, at the start of the new year (2015) Impact left Spike and headed off to nowhere land with a Canadian World Champion and other Canucks on the roster without a TV deal for us Canadians. More importantly, Impact has FINALLY ditched the “TNA” part of their name (Total Non-stop Action) and the most important change was the removal of their terrible announce team! I’m okay with Taz, and Josh Matthews will grow into the role, but I hated the old announcer whose name thankfully escapes me.
Now I found out that Impact has set up a Canadian-only link so we can view their shows. The link is here:
I’m watching their most recent show now! It’s apparently updated Saturday mornings at 10am.
And finally, I’m out of last place in my hockey pool, thanks for some key players who have gotten hot (Kris Letang, Alex Barkov, Wayne Simmonds, to name a few). I’d be much higher than 10th out of 15 teams if I had selected better goaltenders. I chose the Edmonton Oiler goalies, who remind me of that old joke out of Detroit when the Red Wings had a struggling Chris Osgood and Mike Vernon as their backstoppers. The comment was that the Wings were going to play Osgood or No-good, and the Oilers goalies have me so far in dead last in all goalie categories that my other 2 goalies, Robin Lehner in Ottawa and Kari Ramo in Calgary cannot help me out of.
I need a goalie.
Other teams want all my good players for little in return because they know I’m ready to shed salary, but I’m waiting for a really good return so I can make up some group this year and have the best group ready for next year.
So, who needs sleep?
WWE, Impact, and all the west coast hockey games…
