       If today you happen to read USA Today, Deadspin, or ESPN you may see headlines insulting Ian Desmond and saying how he “blew 100 million dollars”. If you aren’t really familiar with the situation you may think to yourself WHAT AN IDIOT. When in reality Ian Desmond did exactly what only a few professional athletes in todays day in age have the balls to do, and that’s believe in themselves.  Continue reading

Fantasy Baseball > Fantasy Football

yahoo-fantasy-baseball-leagues

      The discussion I hear way to often about fantasy sports is 90% always related to fantasy football. Do people really prefer checkers to chess or go fish to rummy 500? Fantasy football is fun don’t get me wrong, but it’s also something that groups of fifty – sixty year old single mom’s get together to play. If you honestly think you are good at fantasy football you need to step into the world of fantasy baseball. Continue reading

       Every night I hear it at least a few times How about this Peyton Manning Story? I used to think the memory of Manning would always be one that was a squeaky clean, all american QB. Now its looking more and more like he has as many skeletons in his closet as any of us.  Continue reading

I LOVED the Bulls, GS not so much.

bulls-vs-warriors

       Growing up in the 90’s the Chicago Bulls were what came to your mind when someone talked NBA. It did’t matter if you were a die hard Laker or Celtics fan; the Bulls were THE TEAM. They had personality, they had role players, and the had the greatest player ever to step on the court. Now a days when you turn on the TV everyone is all over Golden State’s jock strap but, to be honest, they actually annoy me.  Continue reading

Duke VS UNC, Do You Care?

uncvsduke

       Hailed as the greatest rivalry in sports; Duke vs UNC is meeting for the 241st time tonight. In all honesty I really could care less about the game, but I respect the hell out of the history and will most likely watch. Why ? Because people will be talking about it and as a bartender I need to be able to know what happen. I have to cater to the frontrunners who will be flocking the bar during happy hour. Continue reading

Great Barbershop in Philly?

            I‘ve been in the City of Brotherly Love for about a year now and one thing no one tells you once you move to this neck of the woods is where to get a great hair cut. Like most guys I went to Supercuts for the majority of my stay here, and at times…it was brutal. One day while walking home from work I stumbled upon Blokes Barbershop and from now on I’ll have no other human messing with my head. Seriously, these guys are good. Oh and you are greeted with cold beer as you walk up to the receptionist. o
