Playing the Field: What old WWE wrestlers are thankful for and late night hip-hop at a football stadium
Below is required viewing for any red-blooded American on Thanksgiving Eve. Long a Turkey Day tradition here at PTF, we have old WWF superstars telling us all what they’re thankful for on this uniquely American holiday.
Yup, it’s a heaping meal of Americana, with nearly every U.S. stereotype represented.
The 1 percent (‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted Dibiase)
The town drunk (Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts)
The slightly mentally disturbed guy who likes wood (‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan)
The son of a plumber (Dusty Rhodes)
The overbearing local cop (Big Bossman)
The local barber (Brutus Beefcake)
The scholar (The Genius)
The egomaniac (Rick Martel, Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect)
Our favorite parts of the segment:
The 1:13 mark with Dusty Rhodes: “What I’m thankful fo’ fo’ Thanksgivin’ … for my polka dots!!!!”
The 1:53 mark when Luke and Butch, the Bushwhackers chat about how they’re thankful for having sardine stuffing in their turkey this year. They then proceed to be shocked at the sight of each other.
The 3:37 mark when Deebo from the classic ’90s film “Friday” makes an appearance for Randy Savage’s “King’s Court” team as “Zeus.”
And of course, everyone’s favorite segment – the 3:01 mark when Vince McMahon goes from 65 mph to 890 mph when he announces, “along with hercules AND THE EARTHQUAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!
Gridiron hip-hop after dark
There is a certain aura about an empty football stadium after dark. If it’s an old, battle-tested stadium it can even be a little bit creepy.
Throw in a little hardcore rap? That’s Halloween in November my friends.
From 2 to 3 a.m. last night at the University of Rhode Island, a loop of hip-hop filled the air. Yup, the ghosts of Rams football past got crunk last night. And yes, come to find out – Rhode Island has a football team.
Here we have video footage of French Montana’s “Pop that” filling the early morning air. The ditty features such wholesome lyrics as:
“Drop that pu*** b****!”
“She seen the ‘gatti, that pu*** soaking”
“On the couch, wildin’ out yelling free my ni***** ’til they all free”
“B****! Stop talkin’ that sh**, and suck a ni**** d*** for some Trukfit”
“Then beat that pu*** like Klitschko”
No word on whether or not Earl and Marguerite Patterson, the 80-year-old white couple who live yards from the stadium, were startled or not.
Congrats 138-point scoring kid?
Since everyone’s talking about it, here’ the video of the DIII basketball player scoring 138 points. Whenever stuff like this happens, there’s always the lingering feeling of “something ain’t right here.”
