Patriot Day 2017 – 16 Years Later I Remember

Patriot Day 2017 Twinsburg

You’ll hear it countless times today: “Never forget”. You’ll (hopefully) see flags. You’ll see Facebook and Twitter profiles updated. But have you really remembered since last year? Ask yourself… when was the last time you REALLY remembered the events of September 11th, 2001? Was it last year? I sincerely hope not. I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that I remember it often. We were living in Northern Virginia near Washington, D.C. That morning I … Continue reading

Hopeful Walk Around Glen Meadow Park

Glen Meadow Park

I was at the park this evening with my two older boys and I took a walk around. There was a group practicing soccer. There was another group playing basketball. There was a third playing softball and yet and fourth practicing cricket. These groups were made up of young and old people. Black and white people. Males and females. The were all there… and it got me to thinking. This is the America I’m proud … Continue reading

Battleground (2017) – Punjabi Prison Returns

Battleground 2017 Poster

Battleground (2017) was a SmackDown brand event that took place on July 23, 2017, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the fifth event under the Battleground chronology. I’ve been VERY bad at blogging in general and more specifically doing my PPV recaps. This is the first recap I’ve done since WrestleMania 33 back in April but honestly that’s cause I really haven’t been watching them. Summer has been busy as usual and with the fact that there were several PPVs … Continue reading

11 Years of Freedom From Tobacco

Aside from family birthdays and my anniversary, July 24th is the day on the calendar I look forward to the most. It’s the anniversary of the day my life changed. 11 years ago today, I quit chewing tobacco after 18 years. I can tell you that was both the most difficult and most rewarding thing I have ever done. I spent this past weekend (along with my dad, father-in-law and kids) building a play set … Continue reading

Not Going To Watch a Sweep?

Cleveland Cavaliers

I’ve heard more than a few Clevelanders say they’re not going to watch the Cavs game tonight because it may be a sweep. Are you kidding me? These are the same people that support the train wreck by the lake we call the Browns for decades on end with undying loyalty. Win or lose, this is our team and this is the NBA Finals. Enjoy. And remember this… the only thing better than coming back … Continue reading

American Assassin (2017) Trailer

The Shirt – I Don’t Even Know Where To Begin

The Shirt - Kruk

I honestly don’t even know where to begin this post. Strike that. I guess I know where to begin. Indiana. More specifically Indiana University. Beyond that I’ve got nearly nothing. Jenny posted these three pics to Facebook the other day of herself, me and Steve. Neither Steve nor I have any recollection of this particular night. Per Jenny: “I got this shirt from my aunt as a serious gift. The loser of our game had … Continue reading

Starting way back with WrestleMania 25 Drinking game in 2009, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. It’s pretty tremendous to be able to look back at the … Continue reading
