My dad has made me an interesting offer.

For my 16th birthday (March 30), my dad has offered to let my have a couple friends over, order some pizza, and order WrestleMania XX.

That's where you guys come in. Since I'm pathetic, and can't make decisions on my own, I'd like some feedback on whether or not I should take this offer.

Thanks in advance!

In lieu of what?

(In other words, what could he give you *instead of* WrestleMania XX with your buds?)

I'd still get some stuff in addition to WM, but ordering it would take a fairly big chunk of my birthday cash, if you will.

If I didn't order WM, I probably wouldn't do anything special with my friends. Probably just have them over to spend the night, watch some movies.

Well, with WM, you're certainly gonna get a full night's entertainment....a 5 hour PPV plus Heat (I assume) will more than fill your slot. Spend the night and watch some movies...you can do that any old weekend.

In the tradition of my spiritual advisor DEAN, I say demand booze be provided as well.

I say try and find some place that is publicly showing he PPV, or split the bill with your friends. That way, you get to see WMXX and still be able to get your b-day loot.

Good call. Now, if your pops wanted to get you something that would let you record the PPV, theres an idea.

I'm not trying to sound like old man river here, but due to enormous bills and some other events changing my life, I may not get to see WM this year until it's over and I'm watching a tape of it. This is shaping up to be the best show for awhile, so if I were you I'd consider watching it with friends and pizza. You can always demand your friends bring you presents to get in as well.

Golly...makes me feel old this does. My b-day fell on WrestleMania 4 one year, and the b-day party/pizza thing became a tradition until we all graduted high school. Snif...I'm glad to see this rite of passage is still active today.

Well, having friends over has it's pros and cons. They can be distracting, but can make the night more enjoyable. If I were you, I'd tape it and play it back the next day without the friends. I'd vote for a cheese pizza by the way, and i'd start consumption at around the 2 hour mark.

Is there a way you can tape PPVs? I was under the impression that there was some kind of imbedded scrambling code preventing taping (at least with a normal VCR, and I'm not gonna go spring for some special device so I can tape one show).

Record it the way you would record any normal show you'd watch. If your equipment is set up properly, you won't have a problem.
