Indiana University Graduation Day 1999

Indiana University Graduation 1999

This week’s entry for Throwback Thursday comes from IU Graduation Day 1999. This was originally posted as the Picture of the Week for January 21st, 2002 with the following caption: “We’re smiling for 2 reasons. One, it’s graduation day and we’re celebrating the departure of the last remaining 406’ers as they journey into the great beyond known as the “real world”. Two, there’s an awful lot of ass grabbing going on here.” Would you just … Continue reading

Royal Rumble (2017) – Cena Ties Flair

Royal Rumble (2017)

The 2017 Royal Rumble took place on January 29, 2017, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. It marked the 30th anniversary of the event. I realize I’m WAY behind on my PPV recaps but there’s yet ANOTHER show this coming Sunday and I’ve had more than a few people ask me for this recap. NOTE: I have every intention of writing my reviews for Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, Tables, Ladders & Chairs … Continue reading

Pip, Chewie & The Princess

ROTJ - Chewie, Pip & Leia

Ran across this beauty on the hard drive this afternoon and just had to post it for Throwback Thursday. It was originally posted to the site as the May 2nd, 2005 Picture of the Week with the following caption: Sadly we recently lost Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) so it’s ironic and sort of sad that I saw this today.

Episode VIII Title Revealed – The Last Jedi

Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

There are few things that get my nerd juices flowing more than upcoming Star Wars news. The title for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII was just announced: The Last Jedi. I was excited before and I’m even more excited now. I’ve been loving everything that Disney has done with the Star Wars property ever since they took it over (believe me… I’ve still got a Rogue One review coming). Now that we’ve got an … Continue reading

Genesee and Jack at The Annex

Genesee & Jack Daniel's

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry – all the way back in August! To be fair, I haven’t been all that good of a blogger recently at all. With that being said, what better to get back into it than with a shot from one of my favorite dives on the planet… The Annex. I went to The Annex a while back to get a burger for … Continue reading

The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

2016 No-Shave November

No Shave November 2016 – 11.27.2016

As I’ve done for the past several years once again this November I’m participating in No-Shave November. The goal of the event 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 … Continue reading

Indiana University Homecoming 2003

Indiana University Homecoming 2003 (24)

It’s that time of year… the leaves are changing colors, the temps are falling and there’s football on every weekend. Here’s your weekly (ish) Throwback Thursday spot on 406. Today we take a peak at the 2003 Homecoming Game in Bloomington. Well… let’s be honest. We’re actually looking at the tailgate party. I can’t recall if any of us ever actually stepped foot into the stadium. These photos / captions are taken directly from the … Continue reading
