With “Santa Claus” holding court in the ring, Stone Cold Steve Austin took exception to St. Nick’s interaction with a young member of the audience. The Rattlesnake had it out with the imposter, leading to a stunner and a North Pole ass whooping. I hope he got extra presents that year. And yes, that wasn’t the most offensive religion-related occurrence in WWF history.

Trailer Park: Home Alone

If you’re under 30 and Home Alone isn’t your favorite Christmas movie of all-time, please leave this website right now. I don’t want to talk to you. Home Alone just wasn’t my favorite Christmas movie, it was my favorite movie for a while, at least until Independence Day came out. It has it all: laughs, drama, getting hit in the face with paint cans. When you’re a kid, there’s nothing funnier than seeing people get hit with stuff, especially when they’re BAD GUYS! Of course, you can’t leave Home Alone 2: Lost in New York out of the discussion. Despite the fact that it was the same exact movie in a different setting, it pulled it off better than The Hangover did. Seriously, though, how do you get on the plane without Kevin the second time? Wouldn’t you have him handcuffed to you at all times? Or maybe travel in a smaller group? Or take a road trip? I’m just happy the McCallisters never thought of such things.

Trivia Time: Christmas

Posted: December 24, 2011 by Keith Stone in Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, trivia

It’s almost time for Christmas and I couldn’t be more excited for presents, family, and the return of basketball. I did a little research and Christmas is not only Santa Claus’s birthday but somebody called Jesus Christ. A few centuries after Jesus was born, his followers decided to start celebrating his birthday. There was only one problem. Nobody knew when it was. Some thought the spring. Some the summer. Eventually, December 25th was settled on as the date. It was the same date a big pagan holiday and the Christians wanted to steal their thunder. This brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and Santa won’t put you on the naughty list. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

In which year was Christmas first celebrated on December 25th? (and a hint: it is not 1975)
