All Aboard the Bandwagon

The worst thing you can call a sports fan is a Bandwagoner.

According to Urban Dictionary, a “Bandwagon Fan” is:

Whenever a region’s sports team suddenly gets really good really quickly, everyone and their f***ing dog either buys a sports jersey or takes their old one out of the closet where it’s been for 20 years, proclaiming they are a diehard fan. Bandwagon fans usually flock to their team’s…

The Silence of the Rams

I went to my first Rams regular season game yesterday. Of course we lost, but like always, we played one great half.

It’s a completely new experience actually living in the town where all your teams are based. One of the huge perks is listening to sports talk radio. My favorite show is The Morning After on 920 AM. They had a great section last week with this KC Sports Talk guy who talked shit on…

This Month’s Company I Love: Aldi

Maybe it’s the jealousy over my parents being in Germany for Octoberfest, but I’m loving the German Grocer Aldi recently.

So much so I’ve stopped tweeting at the grocery store. The efficiency of Aldi doesn’t lead to a time-wasting activity such as tweeting while shopping. If I stop in an aisle, I need a purpose. Tweeting isn’t a good enough reason. Too much efficiency.

Aldi is hands down one of…

Is the NFL Fiasco More Like the WWE or The Government?

I think everyone is pretty much on the same page on the Ray Rice story. He’s an animal, and should be fired. He was. NFL players need to better behave themselves. Great. Now let’s continue talking about when Johnny Manzeil will start.

But wait, there’s more. The tape. (Jim Ross voice) OH MAH GAWD THE TAPE! Did Goodell see it? Did he not see it? Does it matter? Who knew? Who hid it? Who…

This Month’s Company I Love: Rickshaw Bagworks

You can’t use a JanSport backpack once you graduate.

I needed a brief case.

Do you know how expensive nice brief cases are? You’d think they all came filled with gold. So I was searching around for a decent brief case and stumbled upon a 50% off coupon for this Rickshaw Handbags website. They aren’t leather, but have some nice fabrics and 100% fully customizable. Fabric, color, trim, inside…

This Month’s Company I Love: Fortel’s Pizza

It’s tough out there for business these days. Not only is the cost of compliance and taxes through the roof, but most businesses have to deal with the worst people in the world: the general public. If anyone’s worked retail (I consider a bank branch retail), you know. It’s extremely frustrating and some people just plain suck (and smell). I’m sorry. It’s true.

The media is always quick to jump…

New Country for Young Men (and Women)

I did a post a few years ago when I started getting into country music. Well, this is a post how I’m getting out of country music. At least the kind on the radio.

I’m getting so frustrated with the country on the radio now. Literally every single song is the same. Don’t take my word for it.

Kinda funny. Kinda ridiculous. Very sad.…

St. Louis vs. Kansas City: The Final Argument

I grew up halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City. I went to college halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City. I played hockey in St. Louis in grade school and in Kansas City in high school. I lived in Kansas City for 10 weeks last summer. I’ve lived in St. Louis for 10 weeks now. I am the only person who can settle this argument once and for all.

Let’s get it on.
