I'm considering it.

The site I gave provides a way to watch it on the computer. I haven't checked my television listing (Comcast) to see what channel its available. My wife would have a fit. It costs something like $45.00.

I'd rather go to a sports bar.

Glenn Beck Challenged to WWE 'Raw' Appearance, Possibly Leading to the Greatest TV Moment Ever

http://tv.yahoo.com/news/glenn-beck-challenge...

[An excerpt]

Could Glenn Beck be getting ready to rumble with the WWE? For anyone who's ever thought that conservative firebrand Beck's style of punditry comes off like pro wrestling, your suspicions may be confirmed on Monday's edition of "Raw."

The wrestling organization invited Beck to appear on Monday's show, after Beck took issue with new WWE character Zeb Colter, who he feels is "demonizing" the Tea Party.

"WWE is giving Beck the opportunity to address our 14 million weekly viewers and our global fan base, as he believes we are offending our 'conservative' fans with this storyline," the WWE said in a press release Friday.

Responding to the character -- a hyper-patriotic, pro-deportation Vietnam vet -- on his TheBlaze TV on Thursday, Beck slammed the WWE, predicting that the wrestling organization would alienate its audience. "You're making a villain out of what?" Beck pondered. "Probably 80% of your audience who's tired as it is of being miscast? They're tired of this." [...]

It remains to be seen whether Beck will take the WWE up on its offer. But if he does, it's worth wondering if he'll climb into the ring and actually wrestle one of his newfound opponents. And if so, would it mark the first time that Beck has found himself in a leglock while clad in tights? On TV, anyway?

Ronda Rousey delivers thrilling comeback win in UFC debut, submitting Liz Carmouche

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/mma--ronda-rouse...

[An excerpt]

Nothing else would have seemed appropriate.

It took her longer than it ever had before, but Ronda Rousey sent the huge crowd at the Honda Center home happy by submitting Liz Carmouche in the first round with, what else, an arm bar.

Rousey won the first women's fight in UFC history by doing what she had done nine previous times, three in the amateurs and six in the professional ranks.

Carmouche had Rousey's back at one point and it looked like she may pull off the monumental upset by securing a rear naked choke submission or a neck crank.

With the crowd roaring, Rousey dumped Carmouche off her back and then worked relentlessly to get the submission. It came at 4:49 of the first – the latest of Rousey's career – and sent the crowd into a delirium.

Rousey was the object of a massive media blitz and was profiled in Time Magazine, on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" and on CNN – places that normally don't cover mixed martial arts.

Rousey, though, did not let it impact her. She came to the cage with a scowl on her face and went out and brutally finished the fight.

"No amount of press is going to save these girls from me," said Rousey, a bronze medalist in judo at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

The bout was 22 seconds longer than Rousey needed to win the Strikeforce bantamweight title about 11 months ago when she submitted Miesha Tate.

Then, Rousey was largely an unknown commodity at the one of the highest levels of MMA. This time around, she was the big star and handled the pressure with the aplomb of a 10-year veteran.

She landed a punch early that backed Carmouche to the cage and immediately tried for a throw to get the takedown. Carmouche fought it off and eventually got Rousey's back.

But after Rousey got her down, she went into side control and pounded Carmouche's face with punches. When she saw the opening, she wrapped her legs around the arm and the crowd, sensing the finish, roared.

Rousey leaned back and cranked, pulling off the historic win.
