St. Pierre vs. Bisping pencil

GSP vs. Bisping was a great fight. We like both guys -- for
different reasons -- and rooted (i.e., yelled at the TV) for St. Pierre. 

GSP embodies everything mixed martial arts ought to be about: respect, dedication, humility, art. Great to see him win by choke.  

Enjoy your weekend!

RIP Andrea. I know you were never alive, but I still miss you. 
Have a great weekend and go Brownies!!!!

Mr R Tuesday Special: Orphan Black Tatiana Maslany Cosima

Got mixed up yesterday and missed posting the Mr R Monday Special.
Trying to atone for my sins today - sorry Mr. R, lol.

Till vs. Cerrone pencil

Saturday's UFC card was the most exciting event I've seen in a long time.

Game of Thrones Jaime Lannister

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau may be the only Game of Thrones' actor whose real (aka stage) name is harder to spell correctly than his character's.

Wish GSP had stayed retired and kept playing Marvel characters like Batroc (GSP for Moon Boy because he loves dinosaurs!) Hope he has a great performance this weekend. Enjoy it - Cheers!

Thor Ragnarok Natalie Portman pencil

Finally saw GGOG2 this week - super fun movie.
Thor Ragarok looks great. Let's hope it is, despite the lack of Portman.

Mr R Wednesday?!? Special - Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black

L-Blitz turned us on to Orphan Black's SF fun (no spoilers).
Maslany deserved at least five Emmy's for her performance(s),
instead of one (just one! ridiculous).

Iron Man Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) pencil

Clueless which Iron Man flick this is from (3?) Thought I'd never write that there are almost too many superhero movies, BUT most of them are still pretty darn entertaining. Bring on Thor and Justice League (but where's Blue Beetle? lol)

Gegard Mousasi pencil

Mousasi back in action this weekend for Bellator.
More guys should follow his lead and take control of their careers.

Mr R. Monday Special! Thor Ragnarok Hela (Cate Blanchett)

Saw Mr. R last week - he's looking great
(not as great as Cate Blanchett as Hela, but who is?)
Mr R still slogging the mileage and running his first 1/2 marathon next month.
Go Mr. R!!!! You rock, dude.

Tony Ferguson pencil

Ferguson-Lee could be a real barn burner. 
Can Brownies beat Jets Sunday or we will tumble to 0-5? 
The Kamchatka Swami sees 0-5, lol. Go Tribe!

Cormier Jones pencil

Only one person knows if Jones can ever get his act
back together:  Jon Jones.

Nathalie Emmanuel - Game of Thrones Missandei

Of course I watched the show (and am still refusing to use rulers).
If you didn't, you're missing some fantastic TV

Tuesday, October 3, 2017


If Stipe played for the Browns, we'd find a way to ruin him too, alas, lol

RIP Tom Petty -- "It's Just the Normal Noises in Here"

Daenyres & Dragon (a Mr. R. Special)

Been flying all over the place (not on dragons, alas). Let's see if we can do some
scrawl catch up this week and next. Enjoy your Monday!

Joanna Jedrzejczyk pencil

I'm out on Mayweather-McGregor. Not just because it will be a non-competitive, yawn-inducing fight (remember the pure, unadulterated excitement of Couture-Toney?), but because I refuse to support the fight's race-baiting, ugly promotion campaign. It's nothing unusual for boxing, alas.

Vote with your wallet.

Ferguson vs. Barbosa pencil

Me and L-Blitz watched Saturday's uneven UFC card. Couple great fights:  Lawler-Cerrone and Jones-Cormier, along with a yawner, Woodley-Maia. Is there anyone who can challenge Chris Cyborg (or even wants to?)

Friday, July 28, 2017

Alexander Gustafsson pencil

If Jones defeats Cormier tomorrow - which I expect to happen - will we see Bones-Mauler II? Hard to believe their first brawl was four years ago.

Of course, given my brilliant predictive capabilities,
you probably ought to bet DC.

Gaethje-Johnson pencil

Gaethje hits so hard that the shock wave warps the cage. 
Or I could spend 50 cents on a ruler, right?

Mr R Monday - Aunt May, Marisa Tomei

Continuing 2017's "super" performance, I have yet to see Spider-Man Homecoming. That makes me four for four for 2017 (Logan, WW, GGOG2 and Spidey 6 or 1 the 3rd). If Doc Ironman still lived in fabulous, flood-filled Findlay, I'd have at least seen two of them. It's all your fault, Doc, lol.

BTW, all Marisa as Aunt May haters need to get a life. And, once you all find it, email me because I need one too. :)

Ronaldo Souza pencil

Despite the abrupt, inexplicable Nunes cancellation, I bought Saturday's UFC card and enjoyed the fights, especially the return of the "real" Pettis. 
Thought Werdum got robbed, but what's an event without judging controversy? 

Gaethje-Johnson delivered Friday night, making my tepid prediction a reality. Zip to YouTube if you haven't seen that brawl - crazy.

Monday, July 10, 2017

Mr R Monday Special, Karen Gillan, Nebula

Have I seen Guardians 2? Of course not. 
Have seen #1. It's fun. Enjoy your day!

Friday, July 7, 2017

Michael Johnson pencil

Johnson vs. Gaethje could be a great fight. We'll see. Have a great weekend!

Donald Cerrone pencil

Major suckage:  the Cerrone-Lawler fight has been postponed until after UFC 214. Oh well, life will, somehow, go on. Enjoy your weekend!

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Gal Gadot Wonder Woman

Still gotta see the movie (hurry up NetFlix!). Despite my strident, anti-ruler stance, the background almost - almost - looks normal. Enjoy your day!

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Max Holloway pencil

If you're wondering what happened to the scrawl's corners, the dog - I kid you not - ate the drawing just like Max chewed up Jose Aldo last month.  

Monday, June 26, 2017

Mr R Monday scrawl Justine Kish

Great performance by Herring last night defeating Kish. Too bad poor refereeing marred the main event of a good night of brawls. Of course, being a ref is a tough, thankless job subject to endless criticism by keyboard jockeys.

Cameron Russell pencil

Her TED talk is worth a listen

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Korean Zombie scrawl

Finished Chew - it's a triumph of graphic story telling featuring a cornucopia of
original, fantastic, zany characters, like Bionic, War-Rooster POYO! Pure fun, buy it!

Man in High Castle Pencil: Alexa Davalos

First season packed with lots alternative universe of fun. First two episodes of 2nd season = how do I escape from this alternative universe, lol. 3rd episode seemed to get things back on track. Haven't watched remainder yet. 

Friday, January 27, 2017

Julianna Pena pencil

It's great that the UFC has female fighters heading two of the next three cards. You ought to watch because women's brawls are often more exciting and
competitive than those between guys.
