9 Years Ago – Chewie Quits Chewing

Nine Times

“9 times.” If you’re an 80’s movie fan like I am, you’ll immediately recognize this quote as coming from Ed Rooney who was Ferris Bueller’s principal. And while that’s one of my all time favorite movies (Check out the ongoing series I’m writing of my favorite movies by year… here’s the latest: 1983) it’s not the reason I’m writing this post today.  Today marks 9 years since I’ve quit chewing tobacco. 9 years ago this morning … Continue reading

The Undertaker At Battleground & RAW? Not Good

Undertaker Workout

I’m going to preface this post by saying that the Undertaker is my favorite wrestler of all time. Speculations is running rampant on the Interwebs that The Undertaker will be making his return to WWE either at this Sunday’s Battleground PPV or the following evening on Monday Night RAW. These rumors are fueled by photos such as this one of Taker working out and candidly… looking better than he has in years. This is a very very bad … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1983

Scarface (1983)

Back again with another top five list and this time I’m visiting 1983. This wasn’t nearly as difficult a list to come up with as my last list from 1982, but there were still some tough choices that needed to be made especially when it came to which five films to be included in the Honorable Mentions section. In addition to 1982, check out 1981 and 1980. Chewie’s Top 5 Films From 1983 All of … Continue reading

The Force Awakens And My Anticipation Grows

The Force Awakens

It’s San Diego Comic Con season. Geeks have flocked from around the world to dress up, get exclusive toys and be the first to see new footage and new projects announced. Both The Walking Dead and Ash Vs. Evil Dead dropped new trailers and while Star Wars didn’t release a new trailer, they released this video which has me drooling: And as an aside… I love the fact that they’re basically taking jabs at Lucas and … Continue reading

Team Names In America

Washington Redskins Helmet

I wrote a blog post about a year ago about team names. I was specifically talking about the Washington Redskins and my beloved Cleveland Indians. The issue has been a hot button topic for years and continues to be to this day. In fact, just two days ago a federal judge ordered the cancellation of Redskins’ trademark registrations. We live in an ever changing world. Gay marriage is now legal. The flag of the confederacy … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1982

The Beastmaster (1982)

Back again with another top five list, this time the year is 1982. Things are really getting difficult. No, that’s not even accurate. Things are getting downright impossible. 1982 is chock full of films that I consider top notch awesome. I’ve started this post several times. The first draft I had about 26 honorable mentions. But I won’t take the easy way out. With the 1980 and 1981 lists I had five honorable mentions and a … Continue reading

Back In My Day…

Back In The Day

Whether I like to admit it or not, I’m getting older. However, I always say there are 3 numbers that are just that… numbers. Weight, BAL and age. When I hear people tell me to “act my age” I always just sort of laugh. I don’t WANT to act my age. I’ve got 3 boys under the age of 10. I’d much rather act THEIR age. Just ask Wife. All of that being said, I’m … Continue reading
