2013 – A Retrospective Look Back at the Best of 406

The Top 10 Of 2013

I started doing these “Best of” recaps back in 2010.  I don’t blog nearly as often as I’d like to but I really do enjoy looking back at these year-in-review posts.  It’s always interesting to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years. For 3 years running, my list of Top 80?s Action Movies has held the top spot on this list.  Will it hold onto … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Movies, Breweries & WrestleMania 29

Chewie With The Great Lakes Brewery Flight

I’m several weeks late on this post, but I wanted to make sure that I put a recap post together from Pip’s yearly trip to Cleveland.  Unlike recent years we actually had some semblance of an agenda that we miraculously managed to stick to!  I find that as the years go on I tend to look back on these posts more and more.  I’d like to say its because I want to look back at … Continue reading

The 2013 Beeramid – WrestleMania 29

Beeramid 2013 - Row 7

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 … Continue reading

WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game Results

WrestleMania 29 Set

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 … Continue reading

WrestleMania 29 In The Books – Recap & Thoughts

WrestleMania 29 Poster

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 … Continue reading

Potential Agenda For Mania Weekend

The Potential Agenda For WrestleMania 29 Weekend

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 … Continue reading

A Week Out From WrestleMania 29 – Current Card & Predictions

6 Days Till The Beeradmid Returns

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 … Continue reading

A Look Back at 2012 – The Best of 406 Northlane

The Top 10 From 2012

For the last couple of years, I’ve done a yearly recap post taking a look back at my blogging for the year and looking at the “best” posts based on how many views they received.  On the 2010 list, the Top 80’s Action Movies post took top honors.  That same post was at the top of the 2011 list.  What will be in the top spot this year?  Without further fan fair .. let’s get into it. … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 29 Logo

WrestleMania 29 will take place on April 7th, 2013 in East Rutherford, New Jersey at MetLife Stadium.  For the 8th time, Pip and I (and returning for a 3rd year in a row my brother Marko) will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. No roman numerals this year?  Not sure, but at this point, ever reference to the show … Continue reading

AJ Lee – Looking For Her Nature Boy?

AJ Lee & Ric Flair

WrestleMania 29 tickets are on sale which I know based on the 3 different emails I’ve received from the WWE today.  And even though I won’t be going to the show, opting instead for a return trip with the Beeramid, what these emails did do is get me in a wrestling mind frame… time for a prediction. One of the major story lines in WWE these days is the John Cena / AJ Lee “romance”.  If … Continue reading
