Disney owns ESPN and Monsters, Inc. Kinda surprised the editors let that part of the story stay in. Wonder how long before the Kraken gets a cease and desist letter from the Mouse House.


Well technically, "Wonderful World of Hardy" is a play on the old "Wonderful World of Disney".

Wow. We finally have a writer with a personality.

looking forward to more stuff.


I liked it too. Gave me a good first impression.

Comedian: Yep
Charismatic: uhhh huh
Outrageous : Somewhat
Certifiably insane: Probably
Love it: Hell yeah


Hardy reminds me a lot of John Randle.

He was out there too, and like Hardy, teams had a lot more to fear than just his personality.

Randle made it to the Hall of Fame. Would love to see Hardy have a similar career.

I heard Randle was a couple of notches of crazy above the rest though. Maybe Randle was more of a Rucker/Kraken hybrid. A motor mouth with a deep motor for sure though.

Disney owns ESPN, as well as a boat load of other media companies. It's one of the 6 major media conglomerates which together, own about 90% of the world's media.

Randle and Hardy are both what I would call 'football' crazy.

If you're talking about 'real world' crazy, you might be thinking about Charles Haley.

Now that guy had issues :blink:

yeeep, pretty much as far as that goes, to me its a "all you are is what you've experienced" sort of thing. I've often wondered what its like to be crazy, they say its like the whole world is going crazy around you.

Yep, as Einstein said to his friend, " I think the whole world is going crazy, except me and thee and sometimes I wonder about thee."

You do realize that in the alternative universe your other personality exaggerates terribly. Crazy, not really, It's true.
