Victory Declared in Wargames.Com UDRP Battle: I just heard that MGM Studios doesn't get to take Wargames.Com away from me. Should a person who owns Wargames.Com be crying? 'Cause when I got the news I bawled like Tony Romo watching the end of Brian's Song while tweezing out nose hairs.

27B Stroke 6, one of the Wired blogs talked about it. There may have been inaccuracies in their article.

Congratulations by the way. I was excited to read of your victory. I was hoping for you.

I just heard that MGM Studios doesn't get to take Wargames.Com away from me. And rightly so. Good on ya.

Evict them from your ass! Victory is yours! It is now safe to zip up your fly. Congrats, rcade. I look forward to the book.

Congratulations rcade! Didn't they have an attorney with an undefeated record? So what is he now, 13-1? Now that that's over with, about this edit time...

posted by MrFrisby at 11:27 PM on February 06

So, like, you knew Ferris before he was Ferris? Seriously, congrats and thanks for fighting. Now where're grum and all his pitchforks and torches? I have an idea...

Didn't they have an attorney with an undefeated record? So what is he now, 13-1? Yep. He's now Tom Brady after last year's playoffs.

Congratulations, rcade. It's always nice to see "our side" win one of these.

Thanks, everybody. Now as long as Hollywood doesn't make a film titled SportsFilter, we should be safe.

posted by rcade at 02:24 PM on February 07

rcade George Clooney would totally play you in The Sportsfilter movie. Hopefully Tom Sizemore could make a cameo as yours truly.

posted by HATER 187 at 02:42 PM on February 07

Hopefully Jason Lee could play the part of MrFrisby, even though Tom Green would be a more accurate portrayal.

posted by MrFrisby at 02:50 PM on February 07

Hopefully Tom Sizemore could make a cameo as yours truly. You must not be watching "Shooting Sizemore" after that I wouldn't cast him in a cameo as my gardener.

posted by YukonGold at 02:52 PM on February 07

Alright Michael Madsen then.

posted by HATER 187 at 03:02 PM on February 07

I feel pretty certain that my character gets killed off in the first act, and gets listed at the bottom of the credits as "Poster #2 in the bathroom." My part is played by Larry Foster, who goes on to shine in such roles as "Guy holding a giant hot dog" in "Deadspin" and "Fan with purple glitter" in "The Hardball Times" (great movie title right there) before dying himself in a suspicious incident involving cheese and some bungy cords.

posted by The Crafty Sousepaw at 03:07 PM on February 07

Rcade, you should tell them that you'll give it to them if they give you a pope hat.

Good news...

You know, these torches and pitchforks are just wasting space over in the corner if everything keeps getting solved without mob violence...

posted by grum@work at 04:03 PM on February 07

Don't worry grum, baseball season is just around the corner and that can mean only thing: Barry Bonds posts. Just keep the spiders and rats from making homes in that pile o' pitchforks 'n torches and we'll be fine. A long time ago, some co-workers and I played a similar sort of game that y'all are playing; "Alien Skin, the Movie." Mitch from "Dazed and Confused" was going to portray me.

posted by NoMich at 04:17 PM on February 07

We shall march on a road of bones. Git 'em, rcade. And I totally want Gabriel Byrne to play me in the movie.

posted by The_Black_Hand at 04:34 PM on February 07

Just keep the spiders and rats from making homes in that pile o' pitchforks 'n torches and we'll be fine. Black widows can pack a mean punch. Put a couple of those suckers on the end of the pitchforks and nobody will want to even see a Bonds thread again. Kiefer Sutherland is so playing me.

Hopefully Jason Lee could play the part of MrFrisby, even though Tom Green would be a more accurate portrayal. Jason Lee as njs8r20 Tom Green as MrFrisby

Playing BillSaysThis: Tom Cruise puts on 60 pounds for the part. Hey, we're the same age and from North Jersey, same color hair and eyes and skintone. Plus we have whacky albeit different religious beliefs.

posted by billsaysthis at 06:16 PM on February 07

Okay - I'm going with: Mats Sundin. (Woody Harrelson?) This is hard for oneself to do. I'll speak for the guy I know: Garfield is played by Mike D of the Beastie Boys. But really - only me gets to play me.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 08:12 PM on February 07

Nobody puts Weedy in a corner.

posted by rcade at 08:55 PM on February 07

Given it's a SpoFi production, I'm thinking independent, with a rack of awards at Sundance, and primarily art house distribution. Since Tim Robbins is too tall, I'm going for Richard E. Grant, who should be able to do a passable Australian accent.

posted by owlhouse at 08:59 PM on February 07

I'll be played by Samuel L. Jackson. And I gets to have hos by my side all the time. And I travel on a plane infested with m*f*ing snakes.

posted by worldcup2002 at 09:47 PM on February 07

You get to travel on a plane infested with Luther's lost punctuation. If we were being realistic, I'd be played by Paul Giamatti. As we're not, I'd like to be played by Kate Beckinsale.

posted by Mr Bismarck at 01:13 AM on February 08

Kiefer Sutherland is so playing me. Was anyone seriously disappointed when Jack Bauer's father wasn't portrayed by Donald Sutherland? WTF? James Cromwell? Unrealistically, Ewan McGregor would play me. Realistically, it'd be Steve Buscemi.

posted by SummersEve at 05:39 AM on February 08

rcade should be played by Michael Douglas in Falling Down.

posted by jerseygirl at 07:08 AM on February 08

I'd like to be played by Kate Beckinsale. We're still talking about the movie, right?

posted by smithers at 07:27 AM on February 08

But really - only me gets to play me. posted by WeedyMcSmokey I had Danny Masterson picked to play your part. I guess we can let you take a screen test and see how it goes.

posted by MrFrisby at 08:27 AM on February 08

I think we have a critic here! I don't think she likes the special sauce, Rick... Mike D? I can live with that. He's cooler than Pauly Shore or Patrick Dempsey.

posted by garfield at 09:22 AM on February 08

Weedy, You don't look like him anymore since you've gotten all motivated and buff and shit, but the guy in the ad with the come over beard during the superbowl reminds me of uni-you...a bit. minus the comb-over beard, of course.

posted by garfield at 09:56 AM on February 08

I love conversations like this. That's because I have signed an exclusive deal that stipulates any and all portrayals of me in film or television be performed by the great David Caruso.

posted by Venicemenace at 10:05 AM on February 08

I had chosen the Burger King dude to play Weedy. You know, the King that waves in the woman's bedroom in the commercial?

posted by hawkguy at 10:17 AM on February 08

I have never met Weedy, but his moniker just makes me think of Hyde. I have met Samsonov14 though, and I think David Spade would be perfect.

posted by MrFrisby at 10:35 AM on February 08

but the guy in the ad with the come over beard Jim Gaffigan? It pains me that I know that.

posted by yerfatma at 10:39 AM on February 08

Gaffigan's stand-up is hysterical. Look for him on Comedy Central, but it's better uncensored on HBO.

posted by hawkguy at 10:45 AM on February 08

I love conversations like this. That's because I have signed an exclusive deal that stipulates any and all portrayals of me in film or television be performed by the great David Caruso. So that contract you signed in 1995 is still in effect? Are you actually Garth Snow?

That was a good commercial. I liked that one. Didn't feel the connectivity, but I'm so USED to being gorgeous now, I forget uni-me. Modesty, thy name is someone else. And I'm pretty sure the King is supposed to creep people out a bit.. He is a tad unsettling. I think the ad guys behind that one are just trying to be relevant to pop culture. But yeah, he could play me.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 10:59 AM on February 08

I may be alone in this, but the King really creeps me out. Me too. Especially when he's peeping in that lady's window. He is a tad unsettling. Weedy, that was a very polite way of saying creepy.

posted by hawkguy at 11:08 AM on February 08

It's good to be King.

posted by MrFrisby at 11:23 AM on February 08

I have met Samsonov14 though, and I think David Spade would be perfect. i was thinking andy dick as sammy.

posted by goddam at 11:47 AM on February 08

Andy Dick would be great too, a little too tall maybe.

posted by MrFrisby at 11:52 AM on February 08

I may be alone in this, but the King really creeps me out. Not alone at all. I find him scary.

posted by jerseygirl at 12:04 PM on February 08

I thought Weedy should be played by Snoop.

posted by worldcup2002 at 12:43 PM on February 08

It took me forever to think of anyone but Jonathon Togo from CSI would fit pretty well.

posted by tron7 at 12:53 PM on February 08

I may be alone in this, but the King really creeps me out. If he was looking through my bedroom window I'd probably pee my pants.

Very nice rcade! Where do you get all those wonderful toys? Can anyone tell me how one goes about posting a picture on SpoFi?

posted by danjel at 08:38 PM on February 08

This is a discussion forum, so generally we prefer text. Notice how small and tastefully done rcade's image is though. So if you really think the image is better than just a link, it is done using HTML code. That's all I will say for now, young grasshopper.

posted by MrFrisby at 09:14 PM on February 08

Very nice rcade! Where do you get all those wonderful toys? People kept calling me D-Fens when I posted my mugshot, so I found some morphing software and went crazy. I love that movie. I could scare the hell out of Boston if I donned a short-sleeve dress shirt and walked across town with an angry scowl and a satchel.
