The Kid and I: WWE Live Event

Not often you get to check off an item on the parenting bucket list. But that happened this past Sunday. The kid and I went to our first WWE Live Event at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

It’s one of those moments when you pass on the love of wrestling to your kid. She has a vague notion that maybe the sport is fake, but she has favorites (Sheamus and Bayley) and she cheers for the good guys and jeers the bad guys.

There’s nothing like seeing your kid get made at Enzo Amore because he made fun of Anaheim–The city her cousin lives in. She got even more angry at the Shield for beating Sheamus, Cesaro and Samoa Joe. She wished she could hug Bayley.

The event itself was fun. They were just matches. No commentary. No lame backstage vignettes. Just plain matches. Also, the stars get to interact with the fans longer. While leaving the right, Asuka and Bayley spent a considerable amount of time taking selfies with fans.

Best Matches – Asuka vs. Alicia Fox – Enzo Amore vs. Kalisto

Ep 3 – Wonder Woman and Her Feminist Agenda (or lack there of…)

Today, Alan reviews Wonder Woman. Spoiler. He liked it. But many of the few negative reviews claim that Wonder Woman was not a feminist but a “weaponized Smurfette.” In other words, she was a woman in male soldier’s clothing. Do you agree? Listen to Alan’s thoughts and comment on our Facebook page.

Star Wars and SDI

Yes, I am a child of the 80’s. People hated Reagan and believed his Strategic Defense Initiative was a science fiction pipe dream. It was therefore dubbed Reagan’s Star Wars program. This happened today:

Star Wars is right. General Kelly described the process as hitting a bullet with a bullet. Or consider the words of Luke Skywalker, “It’s not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home.”

Or how about the very real Death Star. Says General Dodonna, “You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide.”

Playing Prominence Poker – Second Place Finish – Playing Four-Of-A-Kind

My daughter and I have been making gaming videos and I thought I’d share this one with you. One of my favorite poker games on the Xbox is Prominence Poker. The price is free and it’s a play money site.

I go over play money strategy and give a little insight into reading hands. Two items of note:

  1. I show you how to play a four-of-a-kind in early position. The beauty here is that I was able to get some money out of my opponents without driving them away.
  2. I lost about 90% of my showdown even though I had the best hand and/or dominating hands. It’s important to build your stack to handle constantly doubling up opponents who get lucky.
