BattleBots -- the Golden Bolt

#1 Post by SportsFan68 » Thu Sep 08, 2022 4:38 pm

It's championship robot fighting time as the teams race to win the all new trophy, The Golden Bolt!

In the first five episodes, bots will compete in qualifiers, also known as the Sin City Slugfest. Each night starts with eight teams that will battle it out. The finalist that makes it through that night's bracket will then have to face a BattleBots Legend. And it doesn’t end there.


Rats! The final is tonight at 6:00, but I have a meeting at 6:00, and I'm pretty sure my colleagues will not look kindly on text updates from SteelersFan.

I should get home in time to watch the final bout and see the champion named, then I can watch the preliminary matches rerun at 10:00. Ordinarily, I'd be watching the U.S. Open Women's Semifinals, but not this year.

Go Witch Doctor!

That's one of my favorites too. I have Discovery+ but also a TiVo.

They will re-run it for days, or longer.

Thanks for not spoiling. I was crushed when I finally saw the results but still wanted to see it for myself. I am a big fan of Witch Doctor -- dangit!
