I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...


(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016


2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the Read more

2015 Most Anticipated Movies

Alright, so before we dive in, I want to acknowledge that I got a little carried away and there are a lot of movies listed below. I set out on this journey because I had no idea what to expect from the movies in 2015 and finished my research beyond excited for what’s to come. It appears as though we’re in for a great year and I hope that many of these live up to their billing. Most of these dates are locked in, but I’m sure some will change. There is also a section at the bottom for films slated for 2015 that don’t have a release date yet. Read more

Memphis Grizzlies Growl Towels

Alright folks, it’s time to buckle up for the NBA Playoffs! That means it’s time for new Growl Towels, drum lines down Beale Street, and finding new reasons to hate every other player on every other team in the NBA. As you surely know by this point, all of the seed positioning is still up in the air. And it’s SUPER confusing because there are so many moving parts. However, I’ve tried to compile everything you need to know (with a lot of help from Matt Moore of CBSSports.com) and break down exactly what you need to root for and against happening tonight.

Carly-Rae-Jepsen-I-Really-Like-You-2015-1500x1500

Judging from the nearly 23 million views that Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” video already has, I’m pretty late to this party, so this post might be a few weeks behind. But that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about how great the song is. And let’s be honest, Jepsen made a masterpiece of pop culture with the music video. Read more

Masters 2015: From Tiger to Rory

2015-MastersSm

In 2012, in the fledgling months of The Wise Guise, I participated in a preview of The Masters. I wrote about my favorite parts of attending The Masters live and provided predictions for the Top 10 golfers to be in the Top 10 on the back nine on Sunday, when it’s well known The Masters truly begins every year.

I encourage you to check out that original post in addition to my reflections on Bubba Watson, The Masters, and life on the Monday after last year. But spring is here, college basketball ends, Opening Day wraps up, the NBA and NHL approach the postseason, and yet another Masters weekend approaches. I’d like to offer a few thoughts and reflections before we lay on the couch and let the sounds of Jim Nantz, that theme song, Butler Cabin, the roaring crowds, and the tradition unlike any other wash over us.

Nike’s newest ad, entitled Ripple, provides the perfect preview for The Masters in 2015.

Some say it simply serves as a tribute to Tiger Woods and the impact he had on the current #1 golfer in the world pursuing a career grand slam and his very own Rory Slam. Sure. That’s how they sold it to Tiger.

But for those of us who grew up with Tiger like Rory but have not been busy winning our own major championships, we see the ad for what it really is. It’s about an end of an era and the passing of a torch.
