ESPN HEADQUARTERS - I'd like to thank the wonderful people at ESPN2 for their selection this evening: 3 hours of old arm wrestling tournaments (Don't get me wrong, of course I loved every second of Stallone's arm wrestling epic "Over the Top," as well as every second of the soundtrack written and performed by none other than Kenny Loggins). Where else can you hear a second-rate commentator say "Did the thumb slip out of there or did he pull away on purpose?" when speaking about two sweaty men? Who wants to turn on their favorite sports network and see haircuts that belong in the 80's, bandanas and porn-star mustaches? And is it just me or is every sporting event that nobody cares about hosted at Mohegan Sun? (Typically women's billiards, although what guy doesn't stop to see Jeanette Lee gently stroking a pool stick wearing what must be the same black leather outfit for every match?) Apparently the folks in Bristol couldn't find any of their billion copies of "The Drive" or "The Fumble" which had previously consumed each and every open timeslot over the past 19 years.

The Mohegan Sun reference was brilliant. I'm always wondering why they have so many pointless events there.

I understand why you wouldn't want to watch it, but there are some people out there who wanted to watch the Arm-Wrestling, so just let it be. Although I agree, Mohegan Sun was a great reference.
