Ok, on with business. How do you like 411mania? So far, so good? I’m still getting acclimated myself – but try not to be too much of a whiny f*cking baby and just let the site grow on you .and for those making the analogy – BOSS and Hashish are ONE MILLION TIMES SMARTER than the dumbf*cks at IGN and Wrestleline, so no, the site ain;t going under based on the redesign. The only thing I want to see is that cute picture of BOSS that was on the test page – BOSS, please add that somewhere to the site!

Let’s breeze through this so I can concentrate on tomorrow’s column!

Don’t worry, he’ll be back


I guess I should mention that that overrated menace Bill Goldberg currently has a poll on his site gauging fan reaction to his impending return. Like the allure of millions of dollars ain’t enough – he needs “fan approval”. Whatever and then some. I went over just to see the results, but of course, he makes you VOTE before you can view! I had no problem voting, and as of 2:30am Tuesday morning here is the latest:

Would you like to see Goldberg join World Wrestling Entertainment?

Yes – 88%
No – 11%
Unsure – 2%

I suggest you go over and vote for yourself – click here and vote your conscience also, fell free to email me a results update – I have no reason to surf Goldberg’s site.

In really rotten news, people who are in the “know” are reporting that Kurt Angle has a bad neck and may require the surgery that means GOODBYE FOR A YEAR. I’ll do a follow-up on this tomorrow – there really ain’t enough on the story to make a fair assessment at this point.

Surfing around for stuff I found a nice couple of threads about the new design of 411maina and suggestions to make it better. Now, if Hyatte (or Eric S. for that matter) had read these comments, they would have most likely freaked and gone on a tirade, etc. But not me, I’ll take the high road and give the public what they want what that is, remains to be determined, and as a matter of fact, I best not get involved.


From CNN.com

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — David Wells could be punished by the New York Yankees for writing an autobiography that general manager Brian Cashman said “tarnishes the Yankees’ image.”

While Wells tried to put the controversy surrounding his upcoming book to rest by addressing the team Sunday, it’s clear the issue won’t be resolved any time soon.

“I can’t rule out the possibility that we will pursue some sort of disciplinary action,” Cashman said. “I’m going to get a copy of the book, read it myself and then determine what course of action, if any, to take.”

If the Yankees decide to punish Wells, Cashman said the pitcher would have representation to counter any charges the team might make.

Wells apologized to Cashman on Saturday and didn’t know whether there would be any discipline.
“That’s up to them,” Wells said. “I have no control over what they do. I hope they don’t do anything.”

Cashman plans to begin reading the book Monday. In galleys of the autobiography, Wells claims he was “half drunk” when he pitched a perfect game in 1998, takes digs at teammates Roger Clemens and Mike Mussina and says drugs are rampant in baseball.

Wells said Saturday that he had a hangover but was not drunk for his perfect game. A day later, he said he stands by everything that will be in the book when it’s released March 14.

So at about 10:15 a.m., the Yankees held a team meeting and Wells spoke for about 5-to-7 minutes. A few other players asked questions before the meeting ended.

“I got my point across today,” Wells said. “I feel a lot better. I told them what I needed to say.”

Cashman and manager Joe Torre said that Wells wasn’t ordered to address the team but were pleased he chose to do so.

“It looks like he feels extremely bad about the situation,” Cashman said. “My understanding is that he gathered teammates and huddled them together and is dealing with this problem now. He’s trying to mend fences, do damage control and fix things.”

The Yankees did not want to talk about the details of the meeting but thought it was productive.

“I don’t think he needed any encouragement because he felt badly when we talked the other day,” Torre said. “He felt like he needed to get it out. Hopefully, we can move on.”

This is just the latest distraction in spring training for the Yankees, who have also dealt with owner George Steinbrenner’s criticisms of star Derek Jeter and Torre’s coaching staff.

While Steinbrenner complained to the New York Daily News in December about Jeter’s late-night habits, he has had nothing public to say about Wells, who talked about partying all night before his perfect game.

“I have a general manager and a manager and they’ll take care of whatever needs to be taken care of,” Steinbrenner said.

Jeter wouldn’t talk about what seems like a double standard.

“I’m done with that situation,” Jeter said. “You’d have to ask him that question. I always ask myself questions. I just keep it to myself.”

Wells is one of Steinbrenner’s favorite players, and the Boss personally lured him back to New York after the 2001 season.

The move looked good most of last year when Wells went 19-7 with a 3.75 ERA. But he got into a late-night fight at a New York diner in September and was hammered in his only postseason start as the Yankees were eliminated by Anaheim in the first round of the playoffs.

Wells hopes the book won’t compromise his relationship with Steinbrenner.

“He’s done some crazy things in his life, too,” Wells said. “A lot of people have. I’m a different breed from most people. I’ve done some things other people don’t do. I speak my mind and sometimes that gets me into trouble.”
Torre said his biggest concern over the book was whether it would distract the team. The players don’t think that will be a problem.

“If every little thing around here bothered us, we’d have a lot of trouble,” Mussina said.

I’m looking forward to Booker and HHH, which will most likely be buried by the Online community. Naturally, be on the lookout for mucho Rock ass kissing as he continues to impress. However, Steve Austin rules the world.


GRUT asked that I plug the following site – www.setyoursite.com. And from his message, it looks as though GRUT will have an “official site”!!. Think he’ll ask * me * to be a contributor? So check out that site also GRUT has a new “And Another Thing” posted. Please go check it out, it’s good (just like it always is) that’s why the boy wins awards, you know.


You may have noticed that we were a little brief again today. These things happen, especially when the only thing to “report” is injuries (depressing) or talk about various sundry activities taking place right before our eyes. Some of you may have noticed a few, but don’t be shocked when hindsight is 20/20 and you get whacked with a major surprise (or two) that may make you realize how “smart” you really ain’t.

Big report coming tomorrow as I wrap up yet another stint of carrying the site on my back while the “names” take breaks. “But Flea”, you ask why didn’t you fill up THIS column with reader mail and feedback? Ha HA HA I’ll leave that to the kids

And to wrap things up today, it’s nice to know not everyone is hiding under a rock, scared of war and / or terror

Fat Tuesday Kicks Off Amid War Fears

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The last day before Lent meant it was time to party across New Orleans, where Mardi Gras revelers brushed off anxiety over the threat of war with Iraq and a lagging national economy.

Mardi Gras is the annual festival of highbrow pomp, elaborate parades and street parties that takes hold of New Orleans, Mobile and other Gulf Coast cities before the period between Ash Wednesday and Easter observed by Christians as a season of fasting and penitence.

“It’s party as usual in New Orleans, that’s the consensus,” said Jeanette Bonura, 52, who drove in with two friends from neighboring Covington a day before Carnival season reached its climactic Fat Tuesday.

Bonura wore a purple wig and a yellow feather boa and sipped from a Bloody Mary as she danced to Zydeco music emanating from an outdoor stage along the banks of the Mississippi River.

“You’ve just got to get out and have a good time,” “Just be cautious and careful. That’s all you can do.”
