Growing Up with Peyton


A few weeks ago, I never thought I'd see Peyton Manning take another snap, much less throw another pass or another touchdown. Much less win another playoff game. Much less defeat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots to win another AFC Championship. (Unbelievably, after all the drama, Peyton Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant


The Revenant: **** out of 4. It's easy to think of The Revenant as simply the vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio's brutally other-worldly Oscar-winning performance or as Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow-up to last year's Award-winning Birdman. In fact, as I was sitting in the theater watching Leo eat raw bison liver and sleep in Read more

How Madonna Changed My Life


It feels like yesterday. When I was seven-years-old, my mother bought me my first computer. This device lacked the thinness of a MacBook Air or the portability of a tablet. No, this was a honest-to-goodness, white-block-with-a-screen computer. It was completely old school, and I loved it. Included with it was Read more

Professional wresting fans were told by Hulk Hogan for years “Hulkamania would never die.” No, despite any new nemesis who would come his way and claim he was the one to end Hogan’s powerful marketing brand, the Hulkster would end up with his hand raised, and the appeal of the iconic wrestler would live on.

Why WWE was right to fire CM Punk

Punk

Fittingly, as we were all giving thanks for the wonderful things in our lives yesterday, former WWE superstar CM Punk interrupted the holiday with a long, rambling podcast as close friend Colt Cabana’s guest.

It’s filled with the typical, ego-charged rhetoric from Punk we’ve come to expect. He says he’ll never go to work for WWE again, citing a barrage of claims, with the most damning being Vince McMahon and company sent him termination papers on his wedding day. Read more

Rugby: My New Favorite Sport

 All-Blacks-USA-Eagles

Last week I experienced the thrill and experience that is the sport of Rugby. Well, the thrill and experience that comes from watching the sport of rugby. Last Saturday, I went to the USA Eagles v New Zealand All Blacks game in Chicago. Packed into a sold out stadium, with 61,499 other screaming fans, I enjoyed my first professional rugby match. This was unlike any display of athleticism I had ever seen. Rugby has the fast-paced and continual play that is exhibited in soccer, with the full contact that one would expect during an American football game. It only took one game because I am now hooked on rugby. Read more

An Open Letter to Soccer Fans in America

Posted on by Jeremy Wilson in Featured, Other Sports, Sports | 3 Comments

Crazy USA Soccer Fans

Dear Hardcore Soccer Fans in America,

The World Cup starts this week, but you knew that. You don’t need ESPN to run promos with Coldplay music splashed in the background to remind you of the start of soccer’s biggest tournament. Your biological soccer clock’s countdown timer has been ticking since 2010’s tournament ended.

Soccer season never really ends for you. You follow different leagues all around the world, so when one league takes a brief break, you just hop over and watch another league. You’re a fan, 24-7, 365.

So now, with the World Cup just days away, I ask just one simple favor of you…

Don’t be a douche.

What that means… Read more
