Bubba Watson stops by Dubsdread

My girlfriend Tara sent me a great video this morning. We recently moved to Miami from Orlando. While in Orlando, I tried to get out and golf as much as possible. Granted, it was never enough, but Orlando was loaded with great golf courses. The closest golf course to our apartment was Dubsdread, an historic, little public course that is just on the outskirts of downtown. It’s fairly easy to...

March Madness: The ‘Sweet Sistine’

If filling out an NCAA bracket is simply not enough for you this month or March, get holy! Introducing the Sweet Sistine – the top 16 ‘papabile’, or eligible cardinals up for the new title of Pope. Of course, there are 117 cardinals in the running now that Pope Benedict the 16th, (now Pope Emeritus) has retired to his summer home south of Rome to pray and meditate for the rest...

The new Minnesota Vikings logo

I’m biased, but I like Minnesota for a lot of reasons. The weather is nice (4 months of the year). The fishing is pretty good. The air is clean and the people are the nicest I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with. I also like that fact that we Minnesotans like to ‘keep it simple‘. Case in point, the new Minnesota Vikings logo. It doesn’t look new. Can you tell any...

Poland Spring caught with tweets down

Most Americans like promises of moving our country in the right direction – especially if they’re kept. But not nearly as much as they like a Republican wetting his whistle during a speech following the President’s State of the Union address. It wasn’t President Obama’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $9.00. It wasn’t his plan to put more boots on the ground...

The last dance for Ray Lewis

My Vikings are out of the playoffs. Sadness.
And while we have a bunch of talented players on the team (MVP AP?), few are as smooth (artistically) than Baltimore Raven’s linebacker Ray Lewis.  In celebration of Lewis’ retirement, BuzzFeed brings you this animated GIF as his last dance at home for Ravens fans. What a way to go out in front of the home crew!

 

Vikings beat Packers 2012

Well, we did it. I feel like we just won the Super Bowl. Tonight we beat the Green Bay Packers to make it into the playoffs. Yes, just to MAKE it into the playoffs. But it’s much more than that. It’s been a long, rough and frustrating road. Being a Minnesota Vikings fan for the past three decades and constantly seeing them crumble in the 4th quarter starts to wear on a fan. I...

South Beach with a Sharpie

I’ve already explained how much I love Sharpies and how I used one everyday at work. Apparently there are other Sharpie fans out there as well. We had met such a man on a recent trip to South Beach. We had just finished our belated Thanksgiving feast yesterday when we decided to hit Lincoln Road  for a little calorie burn. Our first stop was Balan’s restaurant. We had a drink and sat...

Illustrating the 80s with Sharpies

I’m a big fan of Sharpies. In fact, I use one every day. A blue one, to be exact. So I was pretty excited when I came across this ‘Sharpie Art’ detailing some of the great views of the 80s. I remember all of this very well! VHS tapes were a staple of life! Check out this gallery of ‘images of the 80s’ you may recognize. From tape cases, video game cartridges to the ever-famous VHS...

Top 10 companies started in a garage

I love a good success story, especially when a person has a great idea with little means of building it financially.  These visionaries put it all on the line because they believe their idea will explode. Some of the best companies started this way. And where’s the most affordable place to build an idea? The garage, of course. Here’s a great infographic presented by AAARemotes on the...

Jim Harbaugh needs a timeout

San Franciscans can’t be thrilled today. After marching over the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, their 49er’s face-planted against the Vikings this afternoon with a sloppy display of talent and fundamental mistakes. Fumbles, a blocked field goal, a dropped interception and confused play calling all contributed to the mess. The Vikings had their fair share of follies (fumblitis...
