Many players returned from the international break to brand new clubs and took part in their first round of fixtures with their new teammates. This will all change with the new rules but we still had one more season of deadline day debuts. It was a big weekend for managers who had the first opportunity to showcase their new acquisitions to fans and pundits alike. For some, it was a joyous justification full of optimism but others will be searching their pockets looking for a receipt. Read the rest of this entry »

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have finally completed the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, an unprotected 1st round draft pick (via the Brooklyn Nets) and now a 2020 second round pick (via the Miami Heat).

This deal was announced last week, but due to the questionable health of Isaiah Thomas’ hip, the Cavs were looking for additional compensation from the Celtics. With a Thursday morning deadline looming, the Cavs agreed to take the 2020 2nd round pick as the additional compensation for the hip.

Ice Cube’s Big3 Basketball League made a pit stop in Chicago a couple of weeks ago on Sunday, July 23, and like many basketball fans I was intrigued.  I searched online for tickets, and found out through Ticketmaster that I could sit courtside for $750, second row for $250, 3rd row for $75, or a few sections back for $20.  After unsuccessfully asking multiple friends to cop tickets and join me, I came across a Groupon for $45 floor seats, purchased 2 and dragged my wife to the UIC Pavilion on a Sunday afternoon.  To say it was an underwhelming experience would be an understatement.

The good people at TEMPUS Wood Watches reached out to me and asked if I’d like to trial one of their timepieces.  I figured I’d give my Rolex a break and test drive the TEMPUS Afrikaans Men’s Zebrawood Watch.

QUICK REVIEW:

Quality: B-
Style: A 
Value: B
Overall: B
TEMPUS Wood Watches look really nice.  They’re an eyecatcher, a conversation starter, and an overall interesting product.  The intricate details and refined looks of the TEMPUS Afrikaans Men’s Zebrawood Watch had a lot of people asking where I got it.  I told them to check out https://tempus-wood-watches.com/ and see what they have to offer.
With that said, I don’t think I’ll be benching my Yachtmaster for the Afrikaans Zebrawood any time soon.  The watch is extremely light due to the fact that it’s made out of wood.  With that lightness comes a sense of frailty.  I felt like if the watch got wet, it would fall apart.  I’m sure it can withstand the elements to some degree, but when you have this watch on you’re not going to want to put it to the test.  I also felt like with a good whack one of the wood links would break.  Again, this watch is not for the active or clumsy.  A night out on the town or a dinner date, sure, but for those who live an active lifestyle you’ll likely want to look elsewhere.
TEMPUS Wood Watches are extremely affordable, though, as I could purchase 140 of these for what my Rolex cost.  I guess if I had such a supply of wood watches it wouldn’t matter what I did with them.  If you think this watch is cool, be sure to head over to the TEMPUS Wood Watches website and check out all of their models.  They’re not for me, but hey, I’m a bit of a watch snob.
