Introduced to a national television audience less than two weeks ago, World Wrestling Entertainment’s newest villains Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter embody every unpalatable Tea Party stereotype. Xenophobic at best, downright racist at worst, possessing truly terrible facial hair all the while, the two want nothing more in the world than to deport Mexican immigrants. As in: all of them. Unsurprisingly, actual conservatives and Tea Party supporters are less than thrilled.
On a night when sports and politics went 1-on-1, name recognition scored few points with voters.
A boiling pot of wild martial arts moves culled from dozens (maybe hundreds) of violent Asian action extravaganzas as sifted through a Tarantino-esque fanboy prism, "The Man With the Iron Fists" feels like both a lavish vanity project and an earnest attempt to deliver a compendium of cool hand-to-hand combat set pieces. The vogue for kung fu, elaborate wire work and fancy blade flashing seems rather past its due-date at this point, making director RZA's realization of his childhood enthusiasms feel a bit quaint, but you certainly can't say it's dull or uneventful.

Midway's extreme arcade sports event returns as a high-definition download to give a new generation a chance to create their own exaggerated NFL moments.
A while back, I attended the homecoming game between Collegiate and St. Christopher's, two prep schools in the Richmond, Va., area. For the most part, the parents in the football stands were well-to-do professionals, executives and business owners who could afford to pay stiff private school tuition. Midway through the game, my daughter articulated a thought that had been coalescing in my own head: "It's amazing. There aren't any fat people here."
