Re: Who is the most evil person in Trump administration?

Linda McMahon On October 10, 2005, Linda's character took a surprise villainous turn when she "fired" Jim Ross and delivered a low-blow to him. Apparently, a Stone Cold Stunner that she had suffered a week earlier on RAW (by Austin, during WWE Homecoming) set her on edge. Linda's heel turn...

Why on the list? - The Cubs couldn't buy offense this game off Carlos Martinez, but in the 6th they finally loaded the bases with singles from Bryant, Rizzo, and Heyward. Coghlan worked the count full, then Martinez took his time delivering home. Coghlan tried to call time, but the ump ignored him,...

Re: What is the worst TV show you've seen every episode of?

total divas. as far as scripted, there's probably other shows i've seen every episode of that i can't think of right now, but off the top of my head i'd have to say the office. at its peak (seasons 2-5?) it was as good as any comedy ever, but it fell off hard and was pretty terrible for a few season...
