After missing a week due to all sorts of travel chicanery, the Clown Princes of Saturday are back with their most anticipated episode to date: “Fish Man Fucks A Mute Lady: The Major Motion Picture”! They finally get around to seeing the critically-acclaimed The Shape of Water and spend a lot of time breaking it all down. There’s a lot of meat on the bone that is this episode, but after hearing us talk about this movie for the past 6 weeks or so, we know why you’re tuning in.
It’s one of my favorite times of the year! Since becoming a member of the Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) in 2015, I’ve taken great joy in getting to vote on year-end awards and Hall of Fame.
Just because I feel like I always need to explain this: the IBWAA is a distinct and different group from the BBWAA which is the group of writers who vote on the actual recognized awards and participate in the actual selection process for the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum that you all know. The IBWAA Hall of Fame is a separate, non-physical entity that has many similarities as far as the people elected, but there are differences there as well. For a breakdown of last year’s IBWAA voting, click here and catch up on the results. As you’ll notice, we selected Vladimir Guerrero last season and Edgar Martinez the year before which is why they won’t show up on this year’s IBWAA ballot.
Where as the BBWAA can only vote for a maximum of 10 players, the IBWAA allows us up to 15. That doesn’t mean I have to select 15, but this year, I actually did go over 10 which felt really easy to do based on the glut of what I perceive to be qualified candidates. Continue reading
In 2011, Harry Slash (who is best known as the guy who composed the ECW theme) came up with an idea to make a sort of This Is Spinal Tap for wrestling. I was still wrestling pretty consistently on the indie scene then and together, Harry and I put together an outline for what would have been a DVD talking about my 60 years in the wrestling business. I told stories about running away from home at age 4 to begin wrestling in Mexico, being a star in Japan, the halcyon days of the 80s and how I invented the minivan.
The best part about this story was that we got genuine legends and stars from the world of wrestling to talk about me as if I really was the legend that I thought I was in my own head.
One of the best interviews we got was from George “The Animal” Steele who passed away today. I’m not going to claim that we were friends or that I knew him well, but in the times I was in his company he was always awesome and quick with a joke. I genuinely would enjoy seeing him when he was booked for appearances on shows I was on.
The DVD never saw the light of day, but I do have some of the footage and interviews that were recorded. So I figured I’d share this little nugget today as a small tribute to a true legend of the business. RIP, sir.
