HAHAHAHA GOT YA! This has been a 100% Click Bait Production by DJ Scors. This is procrastinationsports.com we do funny, sports etc. not politics, not the debate! It is time to take your mind off of serious issues and try to worm your way out of your home office or cubicle and have a laugh or two, we all need it.
I will acknowledge the fact that the 2020 Presidential Debate is tomorrow and that got me thinking, there are so many critical debates that I have with myself in my mind nearly every single day. This seemed like the perfect time to unroll those matchups and debate them here amongst you, the readers and hopefully you provide me with some feedback in the comment section. We have some serious categories here and if we need to do more debating throughout the election season then send me your topic and matchup and I will give you guys the correct and final answer. First up:
The Godfather vs The Godfather pt.2
I am mostly Italian, around 60% according to ancestry.com, these films are as prevalent in my household as anything, maybe more so. I have the Corleone family cookbook, the special blu-ray trilogy director’s cut, posters of Michael Corleone and Vito Corleone hanging in my man cave, this is the pinnacle of film in my eyes. Every time I put on a suit and slick my hair back I envision Michael sitting outside in the back yard in Tahoe at the end of pt.2, the imagery, the music, it’s just the best.
I have a definitive answer to this question, the answer is the Godfather, the original, starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. Look, I love pt. 2 but the scenes with young Vito played by Robert DeNiro always bring down the flow a little bit for me. For some reason, I am always much more invested in the story of Michael navigating his enemies while trying to make a legitimate business than I am with young Vito and his rise to power. The flashbacks knock pt. 2 down to like a 9.3 for me and pt.1 stand as a 9.8, the closest to a perfect 10 that is possible.
There is no lull in Godfather pt.1 and you get the insanely well-crafted dynamic of all four brothers. The volatile nature of Sonny, the naivety of Fredo, the precision of Tom Hagen and the transformation of Michael Corleone from war hero, to gang land leader and the patriarch of the Corleone family. You also get the privilege of watching Marlon Brando deliver a tour de force as the Don Vito Corleone. The ancillary characters like Clemenza, Luca Brasi, McClusky and Solozzo are all amazing and who can forget the phantom punch when Sonny is beating the bejesus out of Carlo.
90’s-00’s Carmen Electra vs 90’s-00’s Pam Anderson
DING DING, that is the sound of the bell indicating that a drag-out prize fight has just begun. If you were born in 1992 like I was then the majority of your internet searching from 2002-2005 was based around these two smokeshows.
MARONE!!!!!!!! So, as you can see, you really can’t go wrong here. This is a matchup from hell, this might be the greatest debate in history especially for bloggers of my generation. Who can forget when both of these oscar worth actresses graced the silver screen in Baywatch, Scary Movie, and countless other phenomenal productions. This was the 90’s, for me, Carmen will always hold a special place in my heart.
Carmen, I love you, after seeing you on the Last Dance, I love you even more. Slide into the comments if you need a quarantine date. Love Scors.
The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones
Music royalty from across the pong going toe to toe in this matchup. This might be the one I go back and forth on the most. You obviously have to recognize that without The Beatles the world would be insanely different and who knows if bands like The Rolling Stones would have had as much success if it was not for the fab four paving the way.
Top 5 Beatles Songs:
5. Across The Universe
4. Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da
3. Eight Days a Week
2. Penny Lane
1. A Day In The Life
Top 5 Stones Songs:
5. Get Off Of My Cloud
4. Wild Horses
3. Out of Time
2. Brown Sugar
1. Beast of Burden
In reality, I could probably do the top twenty songs for each of these bands, that’s how amazing they both are. I really feel like my opinion on this could change every week, it might have more to do with the mood than the substantive nature of these bodies of musical work. As I write this, I look at the longevity, the hits, the transformation of their musical style over the years and I give this one to the Rolling Stones.
Pepsi vs Coke
Now, let me start off by saying that I do not drink a ton of soda but when I do, I go with diet. It’s not because I want to be healthy, I am skinny fat Vince Vaughn look alike who has very rarely cared about my personal appearance. I will implore you to peep that pic of me in the hot tub in this blog’s thumbnail and remember that I am your girlfriend and mom’s favorite blogger. I digress, this is a no-brainer for me, I am a Diet Coke man myself. I emulate the Sports Pope himself, Mikey “Diet C” Francesa, the man, the myth the legend. Longeivty, ratings, paycheck, mink man.
THANKS MEAN JOE!!!!!!
It’s debate season, time to get out there and have the hard hitting discussions like these! Many more to come throughout the debate season. In all seriousness, as many of you know, I am an open book on-air and in the blog. If you are offended by talking about religion, sex, comedy and POLITICS, if you can’t have civil conversations with people about high importance issues then we are all screwed. Lighten up, see other peoples view points and try to get along, enough with the cancellation of everything, it could be a lot worse! Smile, laugh and enjoy it, we only go around this crazy ride once.
