He looks like Ben Stiller in Dodgeball.

Speaking of Dodgeball, you get a good look at the ref?


And how bout that finish there with the two chicks? Crazy comeback there.

Yeah, the girls finish was insane. I am surprised Skaterboy was able to make that final race as close as it was (the fireman needs to learn how to swim)

I'm feeling kinda bad for that little asian dude. He's going to get himself crumpled.

Well a lot of this competition seems to be about speed and agility, rather than brute strength.

The female gladiators don't really have a size advantage like the male gladiators do, wonder if the producers went for looks over ability (not that they are perfect 10 models, but they aren't really freaks either).

I wouldn't be surprised if they did. The girls in the old days were like mack trucks.

Ok that was awesome.

Am I the only one who is watching American Gladiators tomorrow instead of the National Championship game?

At the least, I'm recording it and all its cheesy goodness. Loved Mollivan tonight, though I really can't see him winning the whole shebang and being a Gladiator next year. :-b

Pretty fun reliving my some of my youth but I got bored in the second hour. Probably won't watch it regularly but will check back in for the finale.

Crush is Gina Carano, one of the top female fighters (OK there aren't that many :-b) in the world. Didn't realize she was on the show going into it. Her next fight is in February on Showtime.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Since I couldn't possibly care less about college football, it's a no brainer for me.
