With WWE superstar C.M. Punk’s sudden departure from WWE this week, the Poor Scholars staff figured we would shed some light on the situation with a couple of thoughts from staff members Brian Chimino, Raj Nation and Scott Phillips.
If you’ve checked out Poor Scholars in the past, you know that we have some fans of MTV reality television — in this case, Buckwild. Earlier this week cast member Shain Gandee, his uncle and a third passenger were found dead in Gandee’s 1984 Ford Bronco in West Virginia. The cause of death was due to carbon monoxide and it was ruled accidental.
Face it, your NCAA Tournament bracket is shot and you have no chance at winning your pool. Well, at Poor Scholars, our own Danny Hazan gets into a pool where individual player scoring is the only thing that matters. While Danny and his group go hardcore and go throughout the tournament, Poor Scholars is going going through the Sweet 16: Whichever team gets the most points wins. If your player keeps playing, you keep getting points. Over four rounds and eight players, here’s what transpired. And, yes, Sherwood Brown gets taken.
If you’re at all familiar with Poor Scholars then you know we have a few fans of professional wrestling on the staff. On March 5, 2013, Bill Moody, better known to wrestling fans as Paul Bearer, passed away in Mobile, Alabama at the age of 58. The Poor Scholars staff remembers one of wrestling’s greatest managers.
