Carolina Panthers Rebrand


Damn you Matt Stevens. You are so good, and this is such a cool idea. The Panthers were founded in 1995. So they don’t have a long storied history like some of the other teams. What if they did though? Matt decided to create the evolution of what he imagined See more

Hester Moves On


One of the great Chicago Bears players of my lifetime will be playing for someone else next year. Devin Hester is probably the greatest return man of all-time after only 8 seasons. He already holds the all-time NFL record for single-season kick return touchdowns See more

The Great Bambino


Today is the birthday of the greatest hitter of all-time. The Great Bambino. The Sultan of Swat. The King of Crash. The Colossus of Clout. George Herman “Babe” Ruth. When he came along he revolutionized the game. His personality was as big as his production, See more

At Folsom Prison


Johnny Cash’s Live at Folsom Prison was recorded 46 years ago today. Ever since Johnny had recorded Folsom Prison Blues back in 1955, he wanted to perform there. After years of opportunities getting delayed and put off, it finally happened on January 13, 1968. See more

Lou Reed


It’s been almost two weeks since Lou Reed passed away. Since then I’ve been listening to every album he ever put out. Loaded (Velvet Underground), Transformer, and New York have always been my favorites, but there’s so much more out there. I can’t believe there See more

Teddy Ballgame


Teddy Ballgame was August 30, 1918, 95 years ago today. He was one of the greatest hitters of all-time, if not THE greatest. Ted’s stats are among the best as they stand, but to think he missed almost 5 full seasons in his prime due to the war is astonishing. He STILL See more

Stevie Ray Vaughan


It was 23 years ago today that the world lost one of the greatest blues guitarists to ever live, Stevie Ray Vaughan. He was only 35 in 1990 when his helicopter went down in East Troy, WI. He had just played at Alpine Valley earlier that night with his band Double Trouble See more

High Life Tear Off Pack


Most of the gimmicks that beer companies try are stupid…vortex bottles, punch top cans, mountains that turn blue when cold, etc. Just give me a beer. This new High Life packaging I find pretty cool though. Maybe it’s because I love High Life, but I think it’s fun. There See more

Buster Braun


Here are my 10 thoughts on the Ryan Braun suspension…

  1. Steroid users should get lifetime suspensions. Pete Rose is not worse than these guys.
  2. I wonder if Braun apologized to his scapegoat, the specimen collector?
  3. Who loves juice more…Ryan Braun or Buster Bluth? See more

Charlie Kelly


If you don’t watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you’re missing out on Charlie Kelly. And that, my friend, is dumb. His beard is majestic and his wit impeccable. One of the best characters on tv. Now sit back, relax, and take in some of his intellectual gloriousness. See more

Aubrey Plaza


I have a new favorite actress. I haven’t even really seen her act much. She won me over with her interviews on Conan’s show. The first time I saw her on there I couldn’t stop laughing at how serious and funny and weird she was. What an awkward, amazing, odd, comedic See more

Top 5 Friday: Beer


This week’s Top 5…my favorite types of beer. Being from Wisconsin I have to like beer. I’m also very partial to Wisconsin beer. I know some companies aren’t necessarily “Wisconsin” anymore, but this is where they were born and bred, and that counts for me. Our lovely See more

The Big Hurt


Today is the 45th birthday of my favorite baseball player and the best hitter of the 90s, the Big Hurt, Frank Thomas. As a kid, I was spoiled being a Chicago fan. I got to grow up watching Michael Jordan and Frank Thomas play. It’s incredible to think See more

New Music: She & Him


I LOVE She & Him. It seems like the trendy hipster thing to say, but I do. Their music has that cool innocent early 60s feel to it—think “I Want To Hold Your Hand” era Beatles as opposed to “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road” era Beatles. They also remind me a bit of See more

Ray Manzarek 1939-2013


Oh man. The greatest keyboardist in rock history passed away today at the age of 74. His classic keyboard sounds were as much part of “The Doors” as Jim Morrison’s voice or Robby Krieger’s guitar. There are very few bands, such as The Doors, that had a sound all of their See more

George Jones 1931-2013


George Jones passed away today at the age of 81. I was never much of a country fan until the past few years. As a kid my Grandma always had the classic country station on in the background. I never really cared about it at the time, but it got engrained in my head. See more
