Steve Cook joins the Man Cave to talk about his recently published Sports Media Hot 100 list. We’ll rundown the entire list and I’ll tell him what he got right and what he got wrong while he explains his thought process for the picks.
Hi, hello & welcome to the Sports Media Hot 100! I’m Steve Cook, and if you’re a regular Man Cave visitor you may have listened to Jeremy Lambert & myself talk about any number of topics, mostly sports related. At some point during one of these podcasts I agreed to rank the lovely ladies of sports media. It took awhile, so long that I’ve promised myself never to make one of these lists again, but here we are.
There weren’t many rules here, but one rule I kept in mind was that the people involved had to work in the United States of America. I got no beef with the lovely ladies of Canada, or Mexico, or Guam or wherever, but I don’t live there. So it’s not my area of expertise. I also noticed a tendency of other people that do these types of lists to rank people in the top 5 that I’d never heard of before reading the article and that they’d never actually seen perform on television. “So & So works for Channel 4 in Finland!” Yeah, whatever man. For all you know she hasn’t been there in ten years. I know I have some Canadian friends that will take offense to their favorites not being included, but I invite them to make their own list because they know more about the subject matter.
I know I’ll get complaints about the pictures. I’ve tried to make things fair by using photos of these women on the job. Not all of them have posed in Maxim & not all of them have swimsuit pictures available. I highly recommend Googling all of these women and finding out more if you’re unfamiliar with their work.
There’s also a lot of weather commentary in the blurbs because it was snowing and/or really cold when I put this together. Not that any of you will actually read the blurbs, I’m just explaining things in case somebody actually does.
And now, the list!
This week we were joined by TheSuburbCeleb and A-Class to talk about SupaNova Battle League, A-Class calling out some top names, his upcoming battle against Pro’Verb and more. Plus special call ins from Pro’Verb, Codez, and Unanimous and 3 on-air battles.
Steve Cook joins the Man Cave to talk about the debut of WWE NXT Arrival on the WWE Network. We’ll discuss the show and praise the work of Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Bo Dallas, Arian Neville, Emma, and Paige. Really, we’ll just praise everything about the show because it was awesome from start to finish.
This week we were joined by Megadef to discuss the KOTD Ground Zero Grand Prix, his battle at Blackout 4, and what he has in store in 2014. Plus, Vokab joined us for a review of the KOTD Gastown event and Quintilis Destroyer took SBOfficial in another great battle.
I’ve been a wrestling fan for 20 years. Through all the ups and downs of the business, I tune in every Monday in hopes of being entertained for three hours. This year I will finally get to go to Wrestlemania. This is the peak for any wrestling fan. This is the Super Bowl of wrestling, the biggest sports entertainment event of the years. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited. But right now I’m only “experience excited.” I’m excited just to be at Wrestlemania. To go to all the fan events, to be surrounded by wrestling fans, and to witness the Wrestlemania spectacle.
I’d like to see a good show as well.
So with Elimination Chamber out of the way and the Road To Wrestlemania having officially started, every week I’m going to update my excitement level on the matches that are taking place at Wrestlemania based on how well WWE does selling me on things.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to look back at UFC 170. We’ll talk about the biggest star in MMA, Ronda Rousey, and her improvements in the cage, the UFC trying to sell us a cup of coffee, and go on tangents about Assassin’s Creed 4 and Charles Barkley.
Thoughts on Semyon Varlamov, Paul Stastny, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog and their Oylmpic experience.
