In last night's Review-A-Raw, Wai read feedback from Chris in Ottawa, AKA Hacksaw Jim Powers:
"How about those Daniel Bryan masks? I would love to see an arena of people taunting him with those, just like that time on Nitro where a packed house wore Sting masks to get Hollywood Hogan's goat - no pun intended."
The guys did not understand the claim that using the expression "get ________'s goat" in this case, because Hogan did not have a goat gimmick (so far) in his career.
The subject is not Hogan, but rather Daniel Bryan -- fans chant "Goatface" at Bryan, and the new masks are that of a goat.
They were probably tired last night. As are most attempts at puns.
Plenty of blame to go around here, is all I'm saying.
Johnny Depp changed his tattoo from "Winona Forever" to "Wino Forever". I thought it was pretty clever. "Win Forever" would make sense too, but if he had to modify that tattoo instead of just having the whole thing removed, I believe he made the best possible choice.

In Review-a-Wai, John said the internet was not around back in the 80's when talking about Hogan.
1982 was when the first world wide network was released, although many people would argue earlier dates of various prototypes are when the internet truly started. Some even would say as far back as 1970.

I would agree with you if you use the word Internet. My uncle, a University Professor, has been online since 1984. But the World Wide Web is what popularized the Internet. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_World_Wide_Web 1979–1991: Development of the World Wide Web 1992–1995: Growth of the WWW 1996–1998: Commercialization of the WWW 1999–2001: "Dot-com" boom and bust 2002–present: The Web becomes ubiquitous
I've always thought of 1995/1996 as being the birth of our current Internet.
