This has been a bad weekend for old school wrestling fans with the deaths of Nicole Bass, George “The Animal” Steele and The Russian Bear Ivan Koloff. Nicole Bass was 52, George Steele was 79 and Ivan Koloff was 74.
Back in the day I was a big fan of both George Steele and Ivan Koloff. George Steele with his green tongue and his crazy antics in the WWF ring were things of legend. I first saw George Steele live at Madison Square Garden vs. Bob Backlund, and with classic George he was hitting Backlund with some sort of foreign object. Of course the referee never saw it, and Backlund grabbed the object in front of the referee and got disqualified in typical WWF fashion. George was a legend and I even had his action figure and his little green tongued teddy bear “Mine”. R.I.P George Steele and thanks for the memories.
Koloff was the first evil Russian and went all the way to the WWE championship by beating Bruno Samartino and ending Brunos long title reign. Koloff only had the title for 21 days until losing it to Pedro Morales. Koloff was rough and tough and a true legend.
The worlds biggest female bodybuilder and long time Howard Stern wackpacker has died, Nicole Bass was 52. I met Nicole once , but talked on the phone with her many times and she was always a very funny and sweet person. She will be missed. She made it from The Howard Stern Show to the WWF and did it her way. R.I.P Nicole…..Here are some of THE BEST moments….

While millions of Americans tune in to Sunday’s Super Bowl, another intense competition will be going down at the same time: the fourth annual Kitten Bowl. This big game, however, involves slightly more cuddly players; considered the “ultimate feline catsravaganza,” it’s a must-watch for cat lovers. Fluffy kittens are put into “teams” on a field filled with obstacles like hamster balls and tunnels. Depending on the cats’ abilities to navigate the obstacles, their team moves the ball towards a touchdown. Tricky!
The teams in the running for Sunday’s playoffs include the Last Hope Lions, Boomer’s Bobcats, Northshore Bengals, and Home & Family Felines, and their lineups are stacked. Tom Bratty Cat, for instance, is described as “intimidating” and plays “quartercat,” while the “halfcat” Spuds MacMuffin is known for thinking “outside the litter box.” (You can read up on all the kittens in advance.)
One final fun feline fact: all of the “cathletes” for this year’s Kitten Bowl were actually adopted. Watch a preview of the action above, or switch to the Hallmark Channel Sunday to see the claw-filled action live at noon, with announcing from Beth Stern, New York Yankees voice John Sterling, and more.
According to SiriusXM : Asked about the Stern video plans on the earnings conference call with Wall Street analysts, Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SiriusXM, reiterated that video offers would be rolled out this year. The company and Stern have been looking at “how can we turn this into both a creative exercise that would be interesting to our subscribers, as well as makes sense economically,” he explained. “It’s totally on plan right now. … We are in daily conversation on reviewing creative and different elements that go with that.”
He said there would be announcements coming this year that will lead to the rollout. “It’s a creative process and … we want to make sure it’s both correct, it’s exciting and it breaks through and that takes a little time,” he emphasized. “The great thing is that Howard is super engaged with this.” Greenstein concluded by saying “we feel pretty optimistic where we are going to end up on this.”
CEO Jim Meyer was then asked if SiriusXM was exploring additional video offers. In 2017, “our focus is to get Howard correct,” he said, but signaled the company could do more video beyond that. “I don’t think we are ever going to be in the standalone video business,” he said. “We are trying to look for areas where video and that video experience very much complements what our subscribers are getting from SiriusXM and in fact would make them more sticky and more appreciative of our service.
