I’m a huge music fan. I don’t know about you, but when I hear certain songs / albums, I can magically be taken back to a specific time and place in my life. I’m an especially big fan of song lyrics (which you’ll see plain as day as you continue to read).
This list originally came from a Facebook post where one of your friends would tag you and you’d have to chime in. I ran across it the other day and realized that my list really hadn’t changed much in the last couple of years since I wrote this… Continue reading
I’m happy to say that after some scheduling issues, we’ve got a date for this year’s get together in late June. Can’t wait!
WrestleMania 29 was held on April 7th, 2013. Pip, Mark and I once again set out to continue our tradition known simply as… The Beeramid. As we’ve done in years prior, we’d put together a drinking game to help us on our quest and for the second year in a row Mark acted as our on site reporter (IE, the sober-ish guy) who attempted to keep track of the action.
I’ve got to say… this was a rough one. The unfortunate reality of the situation is we’re getting older. We don’t rebound nearly as quickly as… Continue reading
As tends to happen, I found myself in an incredibly weird, but at the same time, incredibly awesome situation last night. I received a text from a buddy Casey yesterday afternoon asking if the Wife and I would like to join him and some others at a performance of War Horse at PlayhouseSquare. We jumped at the chance (after skittering to line up a babysitter for the boys) and 4 hours later found ourselves happy-houring at the Wyndham downtown.
Apparently the Wyndham has an incredible happy hour that everyone in the city of Cleveland (except for me) knows about. I’m happy to say that I’m now… Continue reading
For those following along with the WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game shenanigans, this post is for you. We’ve been putting together yearly WrestleMania drinking games since WrestleMania 25, but just last year did we start keeping track of the results of said game.
With that, I give you the results of this year’s Beeramid inducing game:
For the purposes of our official picks, we included the Miz / Barrett match from the YouTube pre-show giving us a total of 9 matches on the card.
- Pip correctly picked 5 / 9
- Chewie correctly picked 5 / 9
- Marko was the… Continue reading
There’s a bunch of stuff going on in the world and in my personal life right now. My heart goes out to those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon yesterday. During these times I often turn to music to get me through. Today my iPod shuffled to an outstanding song called Kama by Sammy Hagar which I just had to share. Per Sammy, the word “Kama” is the Sanskrit translation for “love”. He wrote the song for his daughter who is also named Kama.
This song comes from the 1997 album Marching To Mars. It’s Sammy’s first post-Van Halen… Continue reading
WrestleMania 29 is in the books as is our yearly Beeramid. Full recap and pics of THAT event coming shortly. For now, I want to take a look at the PPV itself and give some thoughts and feedback.
The pre-event build was actually pretty piss poor this year. The WWE really didn’t do anything all the special to build to their biggest show of the year and it showed. That said, I think they KNOW people are going to buy this PPV simply because of the name “WrestleMania”. Remember folks, now that the WWE is publicly traded it’s all… Continue reading
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the the sequel to the 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra…. sort of. Before I get into this I wanted to mention two things. First, this review will contain spoilers. If you haven’t watched the movie yet and you don’t want to know the plot stop reading and come back when you’ve seen it. Second, I’m a HUGE G.I. Joe fan. Not only of the live action stuff, but more so of the comics, 80′s cartoons and certainly the action figures. Speaking of the live action stuff… I’m one of the few out there… Continue reading
As I get older, I tend to actually “plan” things less and less. Actually, now that I think about it, age really has nothing to do with it. Ever since I got married I rely on the Wife for my planning needs. I’m not quite sure where I’d be without her.
That said, when it comes to a Pip / Chewie weekend I’m pretty much on my own. I’m guessing that ever since Pip got married he’s also lost his ability to do any forward thinking so when you put the two of us in a room we have a… Continue reading
We’re only 6 days from the Grandaddy of em all… WrestleMania 29! Pip will be making his yearly trek to Cleveland on Friday morning and I’m giddy like a little school girl. Absolutely can’t wait!!! If you’re a professional wrestling geek, this is the biggest week of the year. It’s the end of the “season” and good God is it exciting. Yes… I’m a geek. I’ll own it. As per usual, we’ve been hard at work on our WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game to help us build this year’s version of The Beeramid!!!
Here’s the current card from Sunday evening’s… Continue reading
