Tough sledding this week for the NFL, and the entire world/universe/Beverly Hills, as this is the first week of competition where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will not be watching football or controlling their fantasy team, I Like Rushin’ Ends, as a married couple. Certainly the news has […]
Rick Suter—the guy watching Tom Hanks finally(!) get out of that damn airport terminal—is a Los Angeles-based writer and other stuff that doesn’t sound as cool but pays the rent. An entertaining sort of guy...even though that claim is being written by Rick in the third person. He has written columns for Bleacher Report, Faniq.com and Fox Sports (when their blog-o-shpere existed!). He has co-written a book—Rick Dempsey's Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball. The guy loves pizza.
There is a Foot Locker commercial, too...somewhere.
Now that Nirvana has officially (sarcastically) confirmed that Kurt Cobain is, in fact, still alive, we can shift our focus to the Week 2 NFL Power Rankings! Yessir, the first week of professional pigskin is in the books, and holy shit, is there some serious shifting and dissection-worthy […]
You sit around at a local watering hole in small towns, medium-sized nooks, the suburbs that span the Midwest, a city here and there, and chances are you will overhear several sports-related tales being rehashed over a cold beer. The last bit of a cigarette slowly smoldering, with […]
Dear Internet, Writing some variation of a long-winded think piece about you turning 25 years old seemed like an inevitable brain wave adventure this week. One of those articles riddled with would’ve/could’ve/should’ve/hyperlinks—maybe mix in a last gasp to a final exhale that explains, in serious (?) detail, why […]
OMG, IMO, the nOOb acronym that was uttered on yesterday’s episode of Hard Knocks was so stellar that it probably had NASA shouting YMMD. Blast off, Los Angeles Rams! It was perfect, so concise and precise, proverbially escalating to a creative precipice for the linguistic lover of scribbling […]
What to Wear: The Five Best Fashion Options for the (Un)Common Person Watching the 2016 Rio Olympics
Watching your favorite player or team compete in a sports event is one of the coolest things to do. #Sports! It’s the thrill of involving yourself in something you have zero control over. There’s usually alcohol involved in the viewing process, too, which makes yelling a lot more […]
There’s something special about seeing the newest addition of a blockbuster movie franchise when you haven’t seen but maybe ten minutes of any of the previous films. Back in 2002, I missed the unveiling and identification of one Mr. Matt Damon Jason Bourne to the world. I have […]
No one cares if the zany clown is really sad deep down in the most secret—usually truest—part of his or her soul. At the end of the birthday, it’s more about how well that clown made the balloon animals or how entertained (babysat) the kids were from arrival […]
Last year, Roger Federer stood in the spotlight on Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open, following his one-sided loss (again) to Novak Djokovic — currently a more consistent, younger, two-handed-er backhand type of player — and, as only the GOAT of the sport can do, he gave the crowd a final […]
Summertime is about staying cool and having a good time. It’s also about the movies. Summer blockbusters! Aliens are attacking—again—Matt Damon is pissed off—again—and Jared Leto is wearing makeup—again. It’s a formula, folks. However, if the idea is to stay cool while, possibly, enjoying a cinematic display, wouldn’t […]
