Long Term Booking: The Rock & John Cena At WrestleMania 30

The Rock & John Cena

So this year’s WrestleMania main event was set a full year in advance.  One day after WrestleMania 27, The Rock and John Cena took to the middle of the ring on RAW the next night and set the stage for this year’s main event.  And while some people (myself included) haven’t really enjoyed a year-long build to this year’s Mania main event, I have a suspicious feeling that this is just the tip of the … Continue reading

2011 – The Best Of 406

The Top 10 Of 2011

I started doing a yearly recap last year.  During the past year, I’ve found myself referring to that post quite a few times so I figured I’d do it again this year.  Got something you want me to cover in 2012?  Drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do! The Top 10 Posts Of 2011 (Based On Number Of Views) #10 – Thoughts At 35 No matter how hard I try, I … Continue reading

My Version Of “Foodie”

Nachos From BW3

I have quite a few friends that I’d consider “foodies”.  They write awesome blogs, share reviews and tend to photograph the food they eat.  I’ve never really considered myself a food photographer and I’m certainly not a foodie with all the crap that I eat.  However… I was going through some recent pics on my phone and I realized that I’ve taken quite a few food pictures over the recent months. These nachos were free … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Opening Day & WrestleMania 27

Pip & Chewie At The Indian's Home Opener

Once again this year, Pip made his yearly trek to the Cleveland area for a weekend of reliving memories and debauchery.  This year’s trip happened to coincide with Opening Day for the Indians so we headed down to the stadium to take in a game with my brother Marko and buddy Al.  Pip had never been to the stadium so it was super cool to have a “first timer” there though I can’t say the … Continue reading

The Beeramid – 2011 Edition

Beeramid 2011 - Row #7

As we have for many years, Pip and I got together (once again this year with my brother Marko) to watch WrestleMania 27 and attempt a great feat… The Beeramid.  As always, we had our list of rules to govern the night’s action.  We were ready and willing… but were we able? At this point I don’t think the first beer had even been popped.  Truly the faces of the optimistic as we knew (but … Continue reading

WrestleMania 27 – The Morning After

WrestleMania 27 Logo

WrestleMania 27 is in the books.  While Pip, my bro and I had an absolute BLAST building this year’s Beeramid (pics here) I have to say the show was pretty lackluster.  It took a good 24 minutes after the show started for the first match to get underway… that’s just WAY too long in my opinion (even with the Rock starting things off). Edge retained the World Title over Alberto Del Rio I thought for … Continue reading

Celebrities At WrestleMania

Snooki WWE

WrestleMania 27 is just a few days away and just as in many previous years there is a “celebrity” on the card.  I’ve got celebrity in quotes there cause personally I don’t consider Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from MTV’s Jersey Shore a celebrity.  That said, most of the known universe (and certainly much of the WWE universe) knows who she is so Vince shelled out what I’m sure I’d consider way too much money to bring … Continue reading

100 Facts About Me – Or At Least 50

Twitter Logo

There’s recently been a hash tag topic on Twitter called #100FactsAboutMe.  The idea is to tweet 100 facts about yourself (I suppose).  One afternoon I decided that this would be a great idea cause let’s face it… people want to know all about Chewie.  So… without further build up here’s my list: I’m part of the @clevelanddotcom Twitter Twenty! #CLE20 I live in Cleveland but I’m a Steeler fan. In my defense, I grew up … Continue reading

Rumbling Right Along Toward Mania

WrestleMania 27 Logo

We’re smack dab in the middle of the Road To WrestleMania.  Ever since the Royal Rumble in January, the WWE has kicked it into high gear getting ready for their flagship show.  I have to say that going into the Rumble I wasn’t overly optimistic about this year’s show.   With the exception of Taker/Shawn I really can’t remember much from last year’s Mania other than to say that it was better than an average … Continue reading

A Foggy Day In Cleveland – A Quest For Opening Day

Fog In Cleveland

For the umpteenth year in a row, I’ve decided to go to Opening Day for my beloved Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.  (Man… it still sounds weird.  It’ll always be Jacob’s Field in my mind).  I decided that I didn’t want to pay the ridiculous “convenience fees” by ordering my tickets online so I made my way downtown to the Progressive Field box office on a VERY foggy day in downtown Cleveland.  It was so … Continue reading
