I just had to link to this, from the wrestling savvy Bill Simmons on ESPN.com, since Steph-hating seems to be almost up to Olympic demonstration sport levels these days.


Really good question by Brent Zell in South Dakota: "Has Stephanie McMahon officially entered the Jenny McCarthy Zone, where a gal becomes so blisteringly annoying that no amount of good looks can make her seem attractive?"

(My answer: Absolutely. Nobody can bring a lively wrestling show to a screeching halt faster than Steph. She's like Sofia Coppola in "Godfather III," but crossed with Pamela Anderson, Amaya from the "Real World" and Satan. And it's a crying shame. First, she bought breast implants when she didn't need them; then, she entered the Jenny McCarthy Zone. Only one thing can salvage this whole mess, and I think you know where I'm headed here ... let's just say the remedy includes the words "black market," "illegally recorded" and "porn tape." Gentleman, start your camcorders!

Why does everyone hate on Sofia Coppola? She wasn't that bad in Godfather III. The lack of Robert Duvall was why that movie wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

Another Boston boy making a very accurate observation of a terribly annoying thing. Now let's hope the WWF reads his article this week and finally get's the picture.

They've been working the "Steph is annoying" angle since Wrestlemania. All the "wink wink" promos about "too much Stephanie on TV" and "you NEED Stephanie". It's obvious now that what once was a tired angle is now just a rib...

If she wins the strap, she better job it to Hogan.

The sad thing, according to Copppola in his DVD commentary, Tom Hagen was going to have a major role in Part III, but then Duvall wanted to be paid the same as Al Pacino, but the studio balked so Duvall said no. Stupid move by the studio I think.

I don't think Sofia Coppola was Stephanie McMahon bad for the whole movie (though she did have a few scenes in the movie where she was that annoying), she wasn't good. At best she was reading lines. However I think Sofia gets the crap loaded on her because the movie is lousy. The script is weak, Everyone who was in the previous movies is out of character, the motives of everyone is very weak. Most importantly. the movie doesn't FEEL like the first two, which kills it right their. Coppola shouldn't of made a Part 3 (what scares me was that in Coppola's commentary at the end of Part 3 he admits that he and Puzo were working on Part 4 when Puzo died.)

I don't know, man. Jenny's pretty hot. She'd have to get REAL f'n annoying for me not to want to tap that ass.



There are no facts-only observational postulates in an endlessly regenerative hodgepodge of predictions. Consensus reality requires a fixed frame of reference. In a multilevel, infinite universe, there can be no fixity; thus, no absolute consensus reality. In a relativistic universe, it appears impossible to test the reliability of any expert by requiring him to agree with another expert. Both can be correct, each in his own inertial system.

On a side note, Lawler hasnt been that bad lately, has somewhat stopped making fun of all the women (he even sells that Victoria is wicked and evil instead of saying that hole in her top shows her cleavage)
