“Watching” Hawaii Five-0 Online (#H50)

November 16, 2010

So last night, I was finally home on a Monday night and able to catch Hawaii Five-0 live and in action in all its glory (as opposed to watching it off my DVR weeks later). With that, I thought I’d put a feeler out there to see if our WWE `Ohana is interested in a show not named Top Chef. 😛 I know, I know… the post is shmall kine late in the day, and on a random/surprise Tuesday post, but we go see how it goes.

Talk to me!
* Do you watch Hawaii Five-0?
* How does it compare to the original?
* Do you watch it live or later off your DVR/TiVo/VCR?
* Favorite character and why?
* Ladies: Is Alex O’Loughlin as hot as everyone thinks he is?
* Fellas: Is Grace Park as hot as everyone thinks she is?
* Would you audition to be an extra on the show?
* Thoughts on how they’re doing with promoting Hawaii?
* Thoughts on their attempts at incorporating “bird” (pidgin) in the show?
* Thoughts on last night’s show?
* Any other positives/negatives you’d like to share?

BTW, if you’re on Twitter, try your hand at live tweeting, using the #H50 tag next week during the show. A bunch of Twitter/Five-0 geeks have been doing that since the first episode, and it has apparently been growing every week. I took my first stab at it last night, but it was a bit of info overload for me I think. Guess I’m getting old. LOL!

Shoooooots!

Hilarious Sights from the MMA Weekend

July 28, 2008

OK, so if you’re an MMA fan, you probably already saw the weekend’s action, so I won’t go into it in much detail, but there were a few things I saw that just cracked me up! And I just gotsta know if the following were just as amusing to you as they were to me.

CBS had its second major event on network television on Saturday, which featured the Lawler vs. Smith rematch. The formula was pretty much the same for the event, which included an unpolished (as usual) Frank Shamrock behind the mic, but the more distracting thing about him was his BRACES! Did anyone else crack up with me when they saw that??? I must admit, he is getting a little better at making it seem like he’s not reading the prompter word for word, but the braces and his inability to speak normally just threw everything off for me completely.

In the Jake Shields / Nick “The Goat” Thompson Welterweight title match, Thompson’s repulsive beard made me laugh as well. He really did look like a goat with that thang. A billygoat.

Lastly, though aired the night before, Friday’s edition of Inside MMA cracked me up the hardest so I saved the best for last! Co-host Kenny Rice had a progressively worse sweatfest as the show continued. At the top of the show, he mentioned that the A/C in the Osaka-Jo Hall (the site of this week’s show) had been shut off. In the beginning you could see Kenny and Bas start to glisten with moisture. As the show went on, Bas kept his relative cool, while Kenny kept a’ drippin’. His forehead started to bead, his neck collar started to drench, and at one point, he pulled out his handkerchief and wiped his face mid-question! In the closing segment of the show, they cut back to Kenny and Bas and it looked like he was drained and ready to faint. His hair was drenched, collar undone (with tie removed) and eyes barely open. It looked bad, but I couldn’t help but laugh my butt off. Poor, poor Kenny… I hope he’s ok.

P.S. Congrats to “Goose” Gossage for his recent induction into the baseball Hall of Fame!

What Happened to Kimbo!?

June 2, 2008

On Saturday, I, oh, only spoke of the biggest night in Mixed Martial Arts history, when MMA finally went prime time to the masses on network television. Problem was, I had a previous engagement (benefit dinner). D’oh! So I set my trusty DVR to record the blessed event, and even recorded half an hour of the news that followed in case it went long. That’s an extra half an hour of buffer zone yo!

At the dinner, I frantically looked up the results of the fights on my phone and read that there was some controversy in the Slice/Thompson fight. I salivated even more at the fact of coming home to watch it with my own two eyes. So I get home and study my Real Estate book for a couple chapters (highly recommend Abe Lee Seminars by the way) and decide to reward myself with the fight. I “Skip to end” and rewind.

WHAT THE!

They’re still on the Lawler/Smith fight. I’ll watch that later. So I fire up the 1/2 of buffer recording and start to get upset. Knowing it went three rounds, the meter on my bar was quickly approaching the end by the time the first round started.

!#$%

It got cut off! I couldn’t even watch the most anticipated fight on this historic MMA card. Double D’oh! I’ve since frantically searched all channels at all times for a re-airing, but didn’t find anything. If anyone wants to invite me to their house to re-watch it, let me know. LOL! I can’t believe I missed it. I wanted to see the controversial tap dammit.

What was even more amusing was how outspoken UFC President Dana White talked smack on ESPN about his rival organization, saying “What happened on CBS was horrendous.” Check it out.

Talk to me:
* Are you a Kimbo fan? Do you think he needs to be tested more on the ground and deeper into the rounds (cardio) to legitimize his game?
* Do you think EliteXC is using Kimbo strictly as a marketing tool? Shouldn’t they put him up against good comp soon already?
* Is Brett Rogers hating’ (jealous of Kimbo’s coverage) or does he have a point?
* What do you think of Dana White? Love ’em? Hate ’em?
* How ’bout that Faber vs. Pulver fight eh? I gots new found respect for Pulver man!

Biggest Weekend In MMA History

May 31, 2008

Get ready for history in the making folks. Tonight, EliteXC, in a partnership with CBS, will bring the first-ever Mixed Martial Arts fight card to the mainstream when EliteXC Saturday Night Fights makes its debut on CBS (KGMB 0007 or KGMB HD 1007 on Oceanic Time Warner Cable) at 8PM HST.

A HUGE step for a renegade sport that was once completely banned from TV just a few, short years ago.

Headlining the card is Internet legend, turned MMA manchild Kimbo Slice (Kevin Ferguson). His Youtube exploits were so popular that they eventually led to a contract with the then startup Showtime EliteXC organization. Now training with retired MMA fighter and trainer extraordinaire Bas Rutten, Kimbo’s career has reached a new high. He will be facing James “The Colossus” Thompson, a 6’5″ 265 pound giant.

But in what will probably turn out to be the more competitive/exciting fights, former UFC and ICON fighter Robby Lawler will defend his Middleweight title against The Ultimate Fighter alum Scott Smith, while the most popular female MMA fighter in all the land, Gina Carano, who also moonlights as Crush on the American Gladiators, will take on future up and comer Kaitlin Young.

EliteXC Saturday Night Fights

And… Tomorrow!!!

Former UFC legend Jens “Lil Evil” Pulver drops down to featherweight (145lbs) to take on the man who’s been dominating that division, WEC Featherweight champion Urijah “The California Kid” Faber. The rest of the card looks suspect, but it’ll also be on free TV: VERSUS Channel 0210 or HDGOLF 1216 at 3PM on Oceanic Time Warner Cable.
