At that point I think you're just getting down to semantics. Corporations like WWE don't produce 'sport', they produce entertainment. The distinction is pretty inconsequential however. I think consumers have demonstrated that entertainment can be derived from both scripted and non-scripted events.

I watch wrestling like twice a year and get a chuckle out of it

I really like CM Punk too. Oh well. He's had that belt forever now.

Anyone wanna petition to move the wrestling forum, which is really only about WWE, into non-sports instead of other sports?

He returned in February 2011 after 7 years of not making any appearances. He made some sporadic appearances afterwards and is basically taking time off from his movie schedule to do this for the fans.

Here's the clip of him returning:

All this wrestling stuff is as fascinating to me the paint on my wall that's been dry for 6 years.

I'd rather watch a show about forks

but then again, I'm into all the feminine things in the world so what do I know?

Speaking of which, if anyone would still like to take up my offer to get gelato and stroll through central park, I'll plan a trip for May when school is finished.

I'd also like to clarify that I find wrestling to be an incredible bore. I just like to see things criticized in a legitimate manner and I don't consider asserting that wrestling is scripted to be a valid criticism.

It has gotten extremely boring. I picked it back up last year after a 8 year long hiatus. It's gone downhill.

If you come at just the right time, I might even let you into the Garden

JCresty will force his way into the garden's premium seats if necessary. I know how to use pepper spray.

I was actually just looking at my calender today. Have a few members of my extended family that want to hang out but I just don't have time without cutting out a significant portion of my paycheck and being late on car payment/insurance, etc. After graduation I can take a deep breath.

Austria is one of the most socially advanced countires in the world. All the social laws (drinking age etc.) are what people all over the world want. Yet there's still a bunch of old ****ing idiots in the country, ruining it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austria...ferendum,_2013

Once I turn 18, I'll be stuck in the US. I'll have to stay away from home until the old retards all ****ing die, and I can visit my grandparents without being kidnapped and forced into the armed forces
