  1. Anyone tried fuboTV?

    I see. Do you get your local FOX/CBS affiliate on Vue? If so, I suspect you won't have any issues with Panthers games. I also came across this article, which addresses the preseason issue specifically: http://cordcuttersnews.com/no-playstation-vue-not-blacking-nfl-games-explain/
  2. Anyone tried fuboTV?

    Where are you located, rayzor? I have PS Vue, too, and I was not able to watch the preseason games since they were on The CW in Charlotte (which Vue does not carry). I don't recall any issues watching games on FOX through Vue last year, though. CBS is also included if you're located in Charlotte.

    Because they make their babyfaces look like idiots and losers constantly. It's the same thing that happened to Bayley. What blew my mind is that they emphasized that Sasha, the babyface, has never defended her title successfully. And what did they do? Beat her clean in the middle, 1-2-3. Why would people cheer Sasha after that? Alexa said she was a loser and then went out there and proved it. Recall that Alexa said Bayley can't get "extreme" for their kendo stick match. What happened? She was right, Bayley looked like a dork, Alexa wins.
  4. My best Stress Reliever, what's yours?

    Enjoy your first slice of pie. I had a Pom growing up, and they really are great dogs if you can get over the barking. I've been doing a yoga program called DDP Yoga for the past few months, and it's a great stress reliever in the evenings. I also play guitar, so that's a great way to just forget about whatever else is going on and focus on the song I'm playing.
  5. Anyone have an analog music setup?

    Absolutely. I did this with Pink Floyd's "Animals" before it was officially re-released. I could've snagged one off of eBay, but the wait was worth the feeling I got when I thumbed through the stack at Repo and saw the flying pig album cover that had eluded me for so long.

    When I first started collecting, I definitely had the bug. I would go to the old Lunchbox location after work every payday and spend between $50-$100 on mostly new records for probably a year. Eventually I realized I had to reel it in. Now I go probably once every couple of months, and I try to keep every trip under $50. Slow and steady wins the race with vinyl collecting. The key to not going nuts in record stores for me is planning out exactly what I want to buy beforehand and not veering from the path. It's so easy to fall victim to the record store sirens that call out as you're heading down the aisle to the release you want. "I mean, what am I doing if I don't own the remastered OK Computer?" You just have to do your best to resist and add it to the list for the next trip. It also depends on whether you're wanting to collect new releases from current bands or classics. I have a healthy mix of both, but if you're more inclined to collect classic records then you can definitely save money on used ones. I would recommend Repo Records for used and Lunchbox for new. Amazon is another great option, especially price-wise, but the experience of shopping in the record store is a big part of the hobby for me.
  7. Hey can anyone comment on the importance of an unofficial depth chart? Thanks

    Agreed, either Bayley worked me or that was a legit shoulder injury. I haven't seen anything today about an injury, so hopefully that's a good sign.

    The third hour of RAW was awful. Once the main event went on at the top of the 10pm hour, the crowd almost completely checked out. I like Bayley and I think Nia has potential, but there was zero heat and crowd reaction in their match. They must really think that having killed Bayley for about two months straight would get her over as even more of an underdog. It's not working, and the crowd is getting more and more mild. Someone in attendance said there was even a dueling "Let's Go Bayley" / "Bayley Sucks" chant, although I didn't hear it on TV. Also, that Cass/Show match and angle...ugh. Heel Cass gets one over on face Big show, so face Enzo attacks him from behind like a coward and then gets killed (again). Afterward, Show lays out Cass and Show/Enzo walk out together. This makes zero sense and gets no one over. On a positive note, Heyman cut another tremendous promo that actually had something of substance behind it (Brock leaving WWE possibly), and Ambrose seems to be refreshed with this Seth Rollins angle. Dean has been doing some great promo work. Their presumed match with Sheamus/Cesaro at Summerslam should be good, and the crowd will love a Shield reunion/tag team champs run.

    Going to NXT and/or Summerslam?

    Has anyone been keeping up with the G-1 Climax tournament? I haven't watched any of it so far, but I'm planning to watch as much as I can tonight and tomorrow morning. It's staggering how many ****+ matches have come out of it in only two weeks or so.

    At least we don't have Stephanie's music opening the show right now (sorry for the jinx). The opening segment this past week was pretty damn good, I thought. All promos related to the big hoss 4-way have delivered. Plus we got to see Strowman launch that security guard/Indy wrestler into another dimension.
  13. Hurney when he was on ESPNradio

    I used to listen to his show every day, but I haven't listened in probably a year or so. Like the others said, he was never overly critical of the team or offering things he would do differently. As you may suspect, he didn't ruffle many feathers. But it was interesting to hear his perspective because he could speak about the inner workings of the org and how a GM may look at certain situations. He did frequently mention that he recognized his mistakes during his tenure, and it always sounded to me like he wanted another shot somewhere.
  14. Kendrick Lamar's new album "DAMN." is a masterpiece

    A good music thread on the Huddle? What is this madness?! I listened to DAMN. on repeat for about three weeks. I've cooled off on it for now, but I'll probably revisit tomorrow now that I'm reading this thread. The first time I heard the beat switch in DNA I nearly collapsed. However, the real achievement of this album is getting me to enjoy a song in 2017 that features U2. I agree on FJM--I didn't really dig that new album at all. My other favorite albums so far this year are from Thundercat, The Courtneys, Del Paxton, and Beachheads. I'm stoked for the new War on Drugs and Waxahatchee. Favorite songs so far this year are "Silver" by Waxahatchee, "Sweep Me Off My Feet" by Pond, and "Holding On" by The War on Drugs.

    They absolutely buried her. Bayley was booed by a large segment of the crowd last night. BAYLEY. The one character that (should be) so organically over and loveable that you'd almost literally have to TRY to get the crowd to turn on her. I'm dumbfounded. Honestly, though, they have made her look like an absolute dork for a solid month straight. It's on the writers/booking committee completely. The show was saved by a great main event with a surprising finish. Brock/Joe is obviously a dream match-up and could be a great match. I do kind of wish they weren't just booking it as a one-off since (presumably) Brock is going to work with Strowman at Summerslam, but I'm happy that we're getting it at all.
