The Iron Sheik Tweet of the Day – 07/28/2014

I have not posted an Iron Sheik Tweet of the Day in many many many days. Not that anyone has noticed or complained or even cared.

Still, that was more out of my own general laziness than anything else. Besides, when was the last time you saw a post on this site written by Euan?

Spike TV Elects not to Renew Television Contract with Impact Wrestling

TNA iMPACT debuted on Spike TV on October 1, 2005. After about a year on the air, the show was moved from Saturday night to a 2-hour block on Thursday. Then in 2010 there was an ill-fated move to Monday night to go head-to-head with Monday Night Raw and rekindle the Monday night war that did wonders for the industry in the late 1990s.

Video: “Weird Al” Premiers Video for ‘Sports Song’

Yesterday I wrote that if I were a betting man, I would bet that today’s “Weird Al” video would be for ‘Inactive’.

This is why I do not gamble…often.

Today’s video premier off of Al’s new album ‘Mandatory Fun’ is for “Sports Song” which is a “Weird Al” original and I was hoping there would be a video for this song. Sports is not a topic that often comes up in a “Weird Al” song and so I was happy to see one.

In other news, Al was on Conan last night performing ‘Tacky’ live with his band. If you missed that performance, you can watch it here.
