Ep. 46: Purple Rain

We talk about all of the things this week! Our “Previously On…” segment is a clip from the original THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS. We begin with some follow-up on the NHL Playoffs and why Joe says the comparison between Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin should be put to rest. Ovechkin then gets compared to Carmelo Anthony and the guys talk about how important a championship is to a Hall of Fame resume. They talk about the semi-recent fad of star players bouncing around on teams near the end of their careers to chase a ring. Dan Marino versus Drew Brees: who you got? Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush buy the Marlins. We update you on Jimmer Fredette and Stephon Marbury’s Chinese Adventures. Would you like to be the MVP of China? Joe wants to be the White Mamba. Jimmer Fredette vs. Eric Thames: who you got? Is Ichiro the real hit king? How do we fix baseball? Gomez is a stupid liar. We watch and discuss the greatness of PURPLE RAIN and remember the genius of Prince. Do Morris Day and Jerome steal the show? Apollonia vs. Samantha Fox: who you got? Prince’s dad wants to talk to Samson. Prince makes Batman sound sexy. Should Taylor Swift do the soundtrack for BLACK PANTHER? Prom night dumpsters. NKOTB vs. The Time: who you got? Don’t send us angry nudes. Prince is dead ass about being purified in the waters of Lake Minnetonka. Prince lives the gimmick…and also at home. Prince vs. Lamar Latrell: who you got? Joe wants a brass waterbed. How did the new Netflix show 13 REASONS WHY get made? Poor Wendy and Lisa. Did The Kid spend the rest of his life in that club? How does the movie stack up on our main man standings? PURPLE RAIN vs. SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: who you got? The Big Finish: Top 3 Wrestling Managers! Joe tells some old wrestling locker room stories including when he wrestled legendary tag team: DEMOLITION! Like us on Facebook facebook.com/carjoemez!

Taxing Thoughts: WCW Saturday Night 8/26/1995

I’m the Abominable CPA (@cpawrestles on most social platforms): independent wrestling superstar*, and emotional punching bag to the massive men and women I lock horns with in armories and high school gyms around the country.

* for formalities more than anything else

We return to the way-back machine to the August 26th, 1995 edition of WCW Saturday Night, hosted by our Saturday Night specials: Tony Schiavone and Bobby ‘the Brain’ Heenan, from Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, GA (rumors that Center Stage was located on Badstreet are unsubstantiated)!

First up, we get a recap of the bad blood brewing between Ric Flair and Arn Anderson, stemming from last week’s faceoff between the two!

Taxing Thoughts: WCW Saturday Night 8/19/1995

I’m the Abominable CPA: independent wrestling superstar*, and emotional punching bag to the massive men and women I lock horns with in armories and high school gyms around the country.

* for formalities more than anything else

I’m a huge fan of all things WCW, and asked Joe and Gomez to give me a platform to educate the masses on the likes of the Gambler, ‘Hole In One’ Barry Darsow, and the Dungeon of Doom.

I’ll warn you that this is not a ‘review’ of the show, per se, as there are enough uninitiated voices who are all too willing to review shows for the purpose of trashing them, or deciding whether their contemporary view of what wrestling is supposed to be deems the shows worthy of viewership. It is simply me revisiting a simpler time when wrestling was fun and wrestling television more resembled the things we all grew to know and love about our fine sport. Plus, pro wrestlers shouldn’t be critiquing shows publicly, because they look like silly billys when they do.
