Originally posted by GrimisI don't think that it was because of her career nearly being over. It was just the absurdity of the entire situation. I mean, this was figure skating, not Chicago politics or something else. Then, between Harding, Gilooly, the fat guy, Harding' slace breaking in the Olympics, the video, and eventually leading up to her boxing career today, the entire situation was absolutely absurd.
You're probably right. But they went a bit nuts doing the "WHYYYYYYY?!" voices and replaying Nancy crying on the floor.
The one image I remember most of all from the whole thing is Tanya asking the Olympic judges to let her re-skate because her laces were messed up. There she is, her foot up on the judges table and pointing at her shoe, asking for a do-over at the Olympics. And she got it. Incredible.

Originally posted by GrimisI was talking with my fiance about Donal Logue last night:
Me: You know, that schmuck from Grounded for Life hasn't been on any of these.
Me: Think he will be?
Her: Only if we have done something to anger one God or another.
Donal Logue= moronic....sorry.
Grounded For Life is one thing...but I highly reccomend a movie called "The Tao Of Steve" that he starred in.
I accidentally flipped to "Comic Book Villains" the other day and I rather enjoyed Donal Logue in that. I think he has a production and/or direction credit in that movie.
And I love the woman (sorry, can't remember her name) that was talking about Forrest Gump last night: "You know life IS like a box of chocolates. And I'm gonna eat every f**king one of them." I just about blew my teeth out laughing at the delivery of that line.
2004 WORLD CHAMPIONS!!! That's not a riot, that's 20,000 fans telling the rest of America to kiss our asses.

As if he's some sort of beleagured sage. He also seems to have pioneered a new type of humor: repeating a previous sentence reaaaaaaally slooooooowly.
Voice over: The Macarena became an overnight sensation. Michael Ian Black: The Macarena. Truly did.... Become. An overnight.... Sensation. [nods knowingly at camera]
Ahh ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Hilarity! It's ironic that he restated something! And SLOWLY!!! Ah ha ha ha ha! Genius!
Yep. He comes off as one of those pricks who thinks of themselves as hilarious just because he talks quietly and pretends to be introspective in what he thinks is an amusing fashion.
I enjoyed the 80's series, but this 90's thing is pretty underwhelming. It's not like the events of, say, 1997 have some huge nostalgic value to them in 2004.
Regardless, nice to see Hanson get some TV time again, with Scott Ian praising them no less.
And I cannot believe that any of you MIB haters didn't laugh at his hilarious Zubaz pants diatribe. Man, I was rolling.
Joe Wilson (looking at Interocitor manual)- Hey, here's something my wife could use in the house... Crow T. Robot- A man? Joe Wilson- An interocitor incorporating an electron sorter. Cal Meechum- Oh, she'd probably gain 20 pounds while it did all the work for her. Tom Servo- Cal, you bitch!
Speaking of Zubaz, why would they wait until 1996 to bring them up? I had at least 5 pairs by 1991.
(Red/gold/white for the Chiefs, Red/white/black for the Bulls, orange/black/white for the Bengals, red/white/blue for the Kansas Jayhawks, Buffalo Bills, & United States of America, and black/white for zebra stripes with no team affiliation.)
To illustrate how pop-culture illiterate I am these days. When I first watched 'I love the 80's' and saw MIB I got that "I know that face but not the name" syndrome. I racked my brain for quite awhile, after a very tumultuous exploration of that graveyard of brain cells, I finally solved the puzzle and realized who my long lost friend was.

The man isn't really my cup of tea humor wise, in moderation his style may be funny, but the novelty wears off fast. My biggest gripe was him and the other dude on the 1973 episode, talking about toking and listening to Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' I went to the IMDB shortly thereafter and found out he was 2 when the album was released, acting as if they were part of the 70's. Everyones done it, but lets be chronologically accurate.
Where if I served sandwiches on the set of Independence Day, making me eligible to be on 'I love the 90's', and they asked me about, say, Limp Bizkit. I'd say, fuck Limp Bizkit fuck there fans, I was rolling J's and listening to DSTM.

He had a great comment too at one of the press conferences, something to the effect of ``If I came to a concert to see AC/DC and saw ME instead, I'd throw bottles too!'' Good to see the guy has a sense of humor at least...
