The Day Hulkamania Died


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 Read more

Celebrating America With Movies: Fourth of July Viewing Alternatives


I first want to state that I fully believe that America, and this great holiday in particular, are meant to be celebrated outdoors. Not necessarily in those ridiculous looking American flag shorts you bought online a few years ago to "stand out" and then dug through your closet to find Read more

Examining Our Love-Hate Relationship with Taylor Swift


Two years ago, I revealed to the world I had a sad, secret love affair with Taylor Swift and her music. It was a difficult moment for me, as I had publicly bad-mouthed the pop star for years. “I mean, can she really sing?” I would question. “And she Read more

JUAN PABLO & SUPERHOTGIRLS: The Bachelor (& RECAPS) IS BACK

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Entertainment, Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Well guys, The Bachelor is back and this time it’s better/worse/more excruciating than ever! Our STEAMY bachelor, Juan Pablo, is known for being able to take off his shirt, juggle a soccer ball, and make women melt with his basic subject-predicate sentences in ENGLISH. I may have missed the premiere last week, which I admit is a shame because it’s the drunkest women will ever get in the whole world and all of time, but I’m still here and we’ve got some people to make fun of.

Some highlights!

The first one on one date took place in some sort of fake snow situation that was like a fairytale duhhhh and also there were bikinis I think. Superhotgirl#330 kept saying that “Juan Pablo makes me feel like a kid again!!!” but that’s probably mostly because she has to speak in SIMPLE SENTENCES so he can understand her. Oh, and I know you were wondering if Superhotgirl#330 ever had trouble being vulnerable and opening up? SHE DID SHE HAS SHE DID ALERT THE AUTHORITIES!

2013 NFL Season Preview & Week 1 Picks

Posted on by Jeremy Wilson in Featured, Football, Sports, Weekly Posts | 2 Comments

Professional football is back! I’m not talking about “amateur” athletes being paid like professionals— *coughJohnnyFootballcough*. I’m talking about real, professional, NFL football!

Last season featured suspended Saints, rookie quarterback explosions—Luck, RG3, Russell Wilson, Tannehill, Brandon Weeden (jk)- PED bans, the Ray Lewis farewell tour, Kaepernick taking over, the rise of the NFC West, Peyton returning to his Peyton ways, Colts using their #chuckstrong magic to make the postseason, a player nicknamed “Muscle Hampster,” the Mark Sanchez butt fumble, Joe Flacco’s hail mary, brothers coaching against each other in the Super Bowl, Beyonce reuniting with Destiny’s Child, the lights in the Superdome going out for 30 minutes (probably by the bitter Saints), Jacoby Jones’ kickoff return TD, the 49ers comeback, and the Ravens final redzone stop.

Whew.

2013 has a lot to live up to, but it’s already off to a quick start. The Aaron Hernandez situation, Tebow making a pit stop in New England, the Ravens trading away their entire attempt at a Super Bowl defense (much like the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks), HBO’s Hard Knocks turning us all into partial Bengals fans, RG3’s miraculous recovery time from a torn ACL, the Saints back in action, and much more.

Are you ready for some football? I know I am.

Here is my quick shakedown on how I see each division playing out in 2013…

Roundtable: Back to School Edition

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Featured, Misc. Posts, Roundtables, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

“The new school year is upon us, and unfortunately for most of The Wise Guise and friends, that doesn’t mean anything since we’ve long since graduated and become adults. However, we all love to reminisce, so this week we each wanted to share a brief first day of school memory. Could be college. Could be kindergarten. Could be funny. Could be sweet. Regardless we hope you enjoy our strolls down the first day of school memory lane.”

The Bachelorette 2013 Recap: SEASON FINALE (PART 1)

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Holy bonkers, y’all. The Bachelorette got OFF THE CHAIN last night. We’re talking, like, this should have been the only episode in this entire season, bonkers. We’re not going to do a traditional five point recap because the only recap is the fact that BROOKS DOESN’T LOVE DES AND WHAT THE HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW????

Okay, so let me break it down for you:

Des went on two FANTASY SUITE dates with Drew and then Chris, and nothing at all interesting happened, except probably some behind-the-scenes heavy petting, and both dudes wildly professing their love for her while she secretly pretended she was dry humping Brooks.
