Defending The 2015 Royal Rumble

Royal Rumble (2015)

The 2015 Royal Rumble is in the books and for the second year in a row I find myself in a position where I feel I have to defend the show the following morning. Just like last year, the winner of the Royal Rumble (this year Roman Reigns) was met with a chorus of boos in the arena that even the returning Rock couldn’t fix.  My Twitter timeline and what seems like the majority of … Continue reading

NFL Week 6: Browns / Steelers With The Shockers

Chewie & Brad At The Browns Game

I’m still playing catch up here on the blog after rebuilding my site recently. While I watch every single Browns game, I typically only get to a couple per year. This year was no exception as week 6 against the Steelers was my only in-person Browns game this year. Brad was nice enough to invite me to join him and the rest of his crew. Not only did we enjoy an awesome game, but the … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 31 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 31 Logo

WrestleMania 31 will take place on March 29, 2015 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Once again this year, Pip, Mark and I will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. Starting with the WrestleMania 25 Drinking game, we’ve chronicled our drinking game rules here on the site. I have to say it’s awesome to be able to look back … Continue reading

No-Shave November 2014

No Shave November 11.23.2014 Panera

I participated in No-Shave November this past year for the first time. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.  Donate the money you usually spend on shaving and grooming for a month to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. A similar activity, Movember, is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the … Continue reading

The Problem With #RAWlternative

RAWlternative

The WWE’s Royal Rumble will be held this Sunday, January 25th. That means we’re officially on the Road To WrestlMania 31 and the blog here tends to take on a professional wrestling tone for a couple of months. Many fans have been less than happy (for good reason) with the product that the WWE has been producing in recent months. Some have even created an alternative to RAW known as #RAWlternative. And even though they’ve … Continue reading

And So It Begins… The 2015 Winking Lizard World Tour

First Beer Of World Tour 2015

I first completed the Winking Lizard World Tour of Beers in 2012. I completed it again last year.  I honestly had no intention of partaking this year. I figured I’d take 2015 off and give it another shot (no pun intended) in 2016. Alas, I found myself at the Lizard the other night and against my better judgement… this happened. And so it begins… Beer #1 was one of my favorites, Ommegang Three Philosophers.  I … Continue reading

Macho Man To The WWE Hall Of Fame Finally?

Macho Man Pointing

Reports are coming out from TMZ and other news sources that on tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW, the WWE will announce its first entry into the 2015 WWE HOF Class and it will be none other than Randy “Macho Man” Savage! This is YEARS too late in my book but I’m happy that it appears as if it’s going to happen. I posted this plea directly to Vince and crew back when Randy passed … Continue reading

Pointy Elbows Claim Another Shirt

Pointy Elbows

Does this happen to anyone else? I swear I must have the world’s pointiest elbows. Nearly EVERY single time I have to throw away a work shirt, it’s because I’ve busted through the left (always the left) elbow. I just don’t get it. I suppose it’s a good thing as it limits how many shirts I’ve got in my wardrobe and forces me to throw some things away but this isn’t nearly the first time … Continue reading

Pardon Our Dust – The Times They Are A Changing

Under Construction

You may see some “weird” things going on here on the site in the upcoming days / weeks.  You may see some missing images, a broken link, etc.  The short reason is because I’ve migrated the website to a new host. The longer, more geeky answer, goes something like this.  When I first built 406northlane.com it was built in flat HTML. I then upgraded it to Classic ASP and it’s since been moved into a … Continue reading
