Is there any way to look at a date other than the current date? Perhaps then some forward thinkers might be willing to work ahead on a history post.

Let us take you back to October 7 in years gone by...

2007
Hey, there was a No Mercy pay-per-view last year, too!
There was also another bit of history/nostalgia.

2006
Nomar Garciaparra wins his first of possibly many Comeback Player of the Year awards. (Jim Thome wins the other, but he's not as funny.)
Hey, you know that John Cena guy? what do u think of him?
Oh my God there's a new Star Wars sequel? (Not really.)

2005
Do you drink? Why or why not?
DEAN provides us with SmackDown comics!
Better times for the White Sox, not so good for the Red.
CRZ does Staraoke, possibly while wearing a tie!
Look back on the celebrity crushes of three years ago, and count how many of them make you go "...who?"

2004
Some dead guy wants you to vote for Kerry. Sorry, man.
Does anyone carry cash anymore?
I think we've added another five or ten thousand attempted Grant Hill comebacks.
Hey, I posted something! Very few people cared.

2003
Hey, the Cubs might not do well in the playoffs!
OFB isn't too happy about Arnold winning the CA recall election.
Some guy's got a funny name!
Michael Jordan might play for the Lakers?!?
Lastly, TNA might be getting a video game...in five years.

2002
Brutality =/= child's play.
Darth Vader's gonna be in Episode III!
Iraq is TOTALLY harboring terrorists, and we should go deal with them right away!
Who's the best screen villain EVAR?
Lastly, how about that Raw Roulette?

Brock Lesnar wins IWGP championship - and shows off his new tattoo

2004:

YES! A 92 post thread about Triple H, Pat Patterson, Paul Heyman, CRZ and A Fan!

2003:
Dikembe Mutombo to the Knicks - NBA Championship probably not imminent

I guess that makes me Buddy Hackett then.

Can't we just refer to them as re-makes?

Sorry about that! I coded it wrong. It should look better (correct) in Dial-up Mode now.

I didn't like the way all that linkified text looked, either - I'm still trying to figure out the best way to present this...

I don't mind the new way you did this, it looks a lot cleaner (and hopefully less time consuming) than the Mound of Links.

    Raw spoiler that will creep you out something fierce

    Dave@wrestlingobserver.com

    A pre-tape was done earlier today featuring HHH going to the cemetary where Katie Vick was buried. He exumes the casket, opens it up, takes her clothes off including her panties, then takes his clothes off and gets on top of her. This scene is shot in such a way that you only see HHH's head so there is no nudity or anything objectionable that you view, although the image it attempts to portray is something else.

    The feed of the angle was just sent a few minutes ago up on satellite, presumably to the networks to warn them in case they want it edited.


And now...

Now the Kane and HLA Storylines make sense
RAW matches tonight

When did you change the titles below the usernames? At first I was shocked because I thought I was customized then I was even more shocked that the walking/stalking/balking were all gone after so many years.

Edit: I also just noticed I can spell check my post on an edit now, that's new too, no?

Back in August (The W). Welcome back!

    Edit: I also just noticed I can spell check my post on an edit now, that's new too, no?
Somebody asked me to make that happen almost a month ago (night of 10/2 to be precise), but I don't think I ever made any kind of announcement about it. I guess I figured nobody ever used it. The lesson here is you should always ask us for improvements because we probably won't think of them on our own...OR, we'll think of ones totally useless to YOU!

I've been wondering on and off about the ratings for specific threads and forums: Are they an average of all the users posting in that thread/forum? Or (far less likely, I'm sure) do the Zimmermans go through and rate them all by hand?
