The usual - This Day In History and Hall of Pretty Damn Good (featuring Exotic Adrian Street), and headlines. This week's headlines include a look at Skip Bayless leaving ESPN and what it means for professional wrestling as well as Ric Flair being...well, Ric Flair and telling Nattie Neidhart to kill herself. We'll also look at the upcoming Payback pay per view from WWE.
Did Flair go too far with his obviously unscripted promo? Should there be consequences?
Does AJ Styles stand a chance of winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Roman Reigns this Sunday? Will we finally see a Bullet Club debut?
This and more nonsense from the crew tonight at 10:30 PM EST!
In this very first podcast of this series, Skip La Cour explains why it's so important for him to get his message out.

We don't subscribe to the idea that you can skip eating food and just take supplements but in some cases certain vitamins need to be supplemented to an already healthy diet. One major concern for vegans is that they don't get B-12 because it comes mostly from meat and dairy. This isn't entirely true, but it isn't entirely true that meat and dairy consumers get enough B-12 either. More than 50% of Americans are B-12 deficient and vegans only make up 2% of the population. Tune in to find out why you may not be getting enough no matter how you eat!

This is from a sermon I shared on April 3, 2016. Some of what I shared is:
Opportunities can be missed very easily.
Groupon's Andrew Mason turned down a $6 billion offer from Google
Andrew Mason turned down a $6 billion buyout offer from Google. Instead, he opted to take Groupon public. The IPO raised $700 million, and the company was briefly valued at more than $12 billion.
But the stock promptly tanked after Groupon missed earnings forecasts and struggled with its accounting and in 2013, Mason was fired. Today shares are trading under $8 and the company has a market cap of about $5 billion.

Marco Polo is one of the most famed explorers of history. It seems he inherited the travel bug from his father. In 1260, when Marco polo was 6, his father and uncle traveled to Mongolia (part of modern day China). When they arrived there the Mongol emperor revealed an interest in Christianity. He asked the brothers to take a letter to the Pope requesting as many as 100 wise men to spread the Gospel among his subjects.
Three years later the brothers arrived home, and two years later set out on their return trek. Did they take the 100 wise men with them? No. Just two friars, for this was all the church felt they could spare. And even those two didn’t make it, turning back shortly into their journey.
What a tragedy! Imagine if the Kublai’s request had been fulfilled. Perhaps the whole history of China may have been changed.
So, Elisha followed/served Elijah for quite a while.
This is a story of being given an opportunity to REST (“STAY HERE”) instead of continuing to keep moving forward.
