Stunt Granny is Raw
We’ve been a lazy crew recently, for various and sundry reasons, but I’m going to try and keep the content moving today. I’m supposed to be sitting in Section 103, Row B, Seat 3 but I just realized that my ticket was sent to my condo and I have no idea where it is. I thought I was going to pick it up at will call. I guess I’m going to have to do a little hunting when I get home. Maybe I’ll call Ticketmaster or Nationwide Arena to see if I can solve this problem. I should have them somewhere since there’s only 2 place I put my mail but stopping at Will Call would probably be easier.
This show is going to be a disaster from my perspective. As soon as I bought the tickets and realized I would be just to the left of the hard camera, I was going to make a big old Stunt Granny sign but I completely forgot this plan because of the Penguins being in the playoffs (more on that later) and my general chaos that’s happening in life right now. So here we are on Monday morning and I don’t really have time to make the sign during my lunch (half) hour because I need to do real work (unlike what I’m doing right now) so I can bounce from here a bit early. Granted, this post has taken 10 times longer than it should have because of my breaks for work. The main point being, I thought I’d get us some advertising but I’m going to fail in that department.
The second point that is a problem is the fact that the Pittsburgh Penguins have a chance to close out the Washington Capitals tonight in round two of the hockey playoffs. I’ll probably soak up the first period and then roll down to Nationwide Arena. The start time being advertised is 8:15 so leaving around 7:45 should put my ass in a seat just in time for the begininng of the tapings for Superstars or ECW or whatever is being recorded these days. I can’t believe I’m missing the end of the game though. Glad to have the handy DVR in these situations.
I did put my picture up at the top just in case someone wants to say hi that actually reads this site. I’ll update this as the day goes along with some other thoughts and preconceived notions of what I’m going to see tonight since I have no idea what is in store for the show. – Kevin
Update #1: According to Jason Powell over at prowrestling.net (I must be looking in the wrong place on the WWE’s site. I clicked on the Raw link and don’t see a preview.) the WWE is advertising what I am assuming is the main event of John Cena & Batista against “The” Legacy. I’ll have to retact that part of my shirt review. Since they’re in “The” Columbus where “The” Ohio State is I suppose all is well. That should make for a decent main event but if Batista or Cena sells for DiBiase or Rhodes, I’ll be laughing since they couldn’t to damage to “Super” Shane-O for the last week.
I did remember one random thing. The WWE loves to come here around Mother’s Day. I think it’s happened nearly every year since I moved here 10 years ago. They always have some dumb sale to try and entice mom to come to the event. I haven’t attended one of those house shows even though I’ve not gone to see my mother on that day. Glad they decided to bump it into Monday so that I’d pay for a ticket to Raw.
Speaking of the ticket, I tried to call Ticketmaster but you are forbidden to talk to a human or ask about a previous purchase. They only gave me an option to buy a new one. I suppose I’ll have to go looking thru my mail when I get home. Ticketmaster is too crappy to lick my balls because I’d enjoy that. – Kevin
I saw you in the crowd shot cheering for Cena…
Did you go talk to the pink jacket huy who was sitting in the front row? The guy is front row at half a dozen shows a year, what’s his deal?
I didn’t talk to pink jacket guy although he walked past me a couple of times. He’s at almost all of the Ohio shows and especially the Columbus ones. I have no idea what his deal is. Him and his wife were the final couple on the Kiss Cam. – Kevin
Hope you had a great time at the show. I was driving into work today on my scooter and noticed a tour bus parked in front of the Hyatt across from Nationwide Arena. There was a distinct aroma of wacky tobacky coming from it. You can imagine my shock and dismay to think wrestlers would be setting such a poor example for Americas children!
