Super Bowl
Feb. 8, 2016 1:44 pm

The game came and went, but the commercials will live forever.

Quickly: I thought the Panthers' loss can be blamed on their O-line and their wideouts. Cant' block, can't catch, can't win. The Broncos had like one legit touchdown drive. The Denver defense played well, but Carolina maybe made them look better than they were.

Now, onto the important stuff.

National Anthem: Second-best ever, only to Whitney Houston. You go, Gaga. But what was that suit?


Commercials: Solid, but not spectacular. PuppyMonkeyBaby was effective, but creepy. I'm not sure I'll look at Doritos the same way again. Too many prescription drug advertisements. The NFL Super Bowl babies spot was my favorite.


Halftime:




Coldplay is meh. Beyonce might be the queen, but Bruno Mars reminds me more and more of Michael Jackson. What a showman.

New Way To Cook Turkey
Dec. 10, 2015 2:15 pm

Sure, deep frying a turkey is kinda dangerous and makes it taste delicious, but after seeing this video, there's no going back to a "traditional" method.

Have you seen the kid play 71 different Beatles songs in five minutes...on the drums?!?!



Insane talent and concentration.


Alligator Slacklining

I'm not sure I'd go slacklining in sneakers. I would die immediately. I have the worst balance in the world.



Sizzl
Sept. 16, 2015 2:46 pm

Does your dating life need some...sizzle? Well, there's app for that.


Oscar Mayer?s latest gimmick is a dating app to help bacon lovers meat one another. The puns are endless, as one of tag lines for this program, aptly dubbed Sizzl, is ?giving new meaning to the term ?bacon-wrapped dates.'?


That's not me. But check out more here: http://time.com/4035044/oscar-mayer-bacon-dating-app-sizzl/


Beer Mile World Classic
Aug. 24, 2015 2:21 pm

If I had any ambition, this would be the event I competed in.

It's the Beer Mile: you basically have to chug four beers while running a mile. Four laps around the track, one beer during each. The winner clocked in at 5:09 - pretty damn impressive.

From  SF Gate:
The inaugural Beer Mile World Classic had about 300 willing participants, including plenty of serious running ringers. The goal? To beat competitors in running a mile, while stopping every lap to chug a beer.

?Making sure just to burp and not to puke is very difficult,? warned Alex Carney, 25-year-old graduate student who did plenty of his own puking at the event. The Berkeley resident clocked in at 11 minutes ? way slower than the Beer Mile world record of 4:55.

There were plenty of amateur racers who lamented that downing the beer was the hardest part. The beer had to have an alcohol content of 5 percent or higher and if runners puked during the race, they?d have to run a penalty lap.


Here's a taste:


Chris Farley
Aug. 11, 2015 10:20 am

I sat down and watched two hours of TV last night without changing the channel once, which says something about the caliber of the programming that was on the air. It was the "I Am Chris Farley" documentary on Spike TV, which I thought was incredibly well done.
Here's a description of the documentary from Deadspin:

The result is worthy of the big screen even if it?s getting its network-TV debut almost simultaneously: short and bittersweet, not unlike the life of the comedian in question. There?s a late cut to a Weekend Update clip where Chris plays correspondent Bennett Brauer, who talks about his own inadequacies using air quotes and flattens the distinction between the actor and the real person, the joker and the joke. You?re led to believe that maybe Farley himself didn?t know the difference.

It's good TV. Find it if you can.

If you haven't seen this yet, you've gotta watch.


Secret Burrito Compartment
July 28, 2015 9:06 am

There's a lot of reasons why it would be cool to be a MLB player. Having the means (aka $$$) to do something like this is near the top of the list.


Sean Doolittle is on (the DL of) my fantasy team, and is nursing an arm injury, which might explain why his main focus is that delicious looking burrito.




Sharknado 3
July 22, 2015 2:45 pm

As much as I've been a part of Sharknado-related conversations over the past few years, I've admittedly never seen the movies. Is that bad? I kind of feel like a hypocrite. Oh well. The idea of the movies is cool, but not enough for me to actually sit down and spend two hours watching each one.

It premieres tonight on something called SyFy, if you're interested.


Quad Flip
July 13, 2015 3:26 pm

I tried pulling a backflip on a bike once. I made it halfway and then my mom sold my precious BMX roadster at a garage sale for $7.
