[Reminder: The selected topics for the first round: 1. Greatest Accomplishment 2. Most Likely to Lead in a Musical and the Man'ti Teo topic, 3. Least likely to have an Imaginary Girlfriend.]

#1 Taylor Swift vs. #8 Dominic Toretto 


1. Greatest Accomplishment - Becoming a huge country-pop star for Taylor, against.... I guess what? Staying out of jail for Toretto? Owning a ten second car? Uh, yeah, I think I'll go with Swift on this one. (Swift 1-0). 

2. Most Likey to Lead in a Musical - Another easy one as Taylor loves the spotlight and the stage. Last I checked, there aren't any ten second cars in musicals. (Swift wins 2-0). 

#4Ryan Gosling vs. #5 Alex Rodriguez


1. Greatest Accomplishment - For Alex Rodriguez, it's pretty much finally winning a World Series in 2009. Unfortunately, even that great accomplishment isn't enough to change his image. For Gosling, it's the adoration of many women, and jealousy of some men. And yeah, he's a pretty good actor. (Gosling 1-0). 

2. Most Likely to Lead in a Musical - A-Rod isn't even convincing to himself, period. It's unfortunate, and that's the truth. A musical with him will most likely be met with boos and rolling of eyeballs. (Gosling wins 2-0). 

#3 Rocky vs. #6 Carrie Underwood


1. Greatest Accomplishment - Overcoming the big Russian name Ivan Drago, or winning American Idol? Have you seen Drago?! He would break you. Look what he did to Apollo Creed! Sorry, no amount of verbal abuse from Simon Cowell can match that. (Rocky 1-0). 

2. Most Likely to Lead in a Musical - Rocky in a musical or Carrie Underwood. Seriously, this one needs to no explanation. (Tied 1-1). 

3. Least Likely to have an imaginary girlfriend/boyfriend - Both pretty much have significant others, but at this point, Rocky has been punched so many times in the head (he never blocks), I wouldn't put it past him to make something up. (Underwood wins 2-1).

#2 Anne Hathaway vs. #7 Big Bird



1. Greatest Accomplishment - An Oscar vs. hanging with Oscar the Grouch? (Hathaway 1-0). 

2. Most Likely to Lead in a Musical - I know what everyone is thinking, this has to go to the talented Hathaway! Until we remember Big Bird has been doing musicals since the eighties, and helping kids read while doing it. Ohhh, take that Mitt Romney! (Tied 1-1).

3. Least Likely to have an imaginary girlfriend/boyfriend - So yeah, maybe Hathaway has had past fiances that weren't who she thought they were, but at least they were real. Who has Big Bird ever had? Actually, what is Big Bird?! ...Nevermind. (Hathaway wins 2-1).

1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable. 
2. Cam Newton - The comment was so unnecessary.…
