Reebok unveiled their long-awaited UFC Fight Kits and Fan Gear lines today, and to say they’re a joke would be a huge understatement.  The fighters in the UFC are the baddest people on the planet, yet Reebok managed to outfit them in these “fight kits” that redefine the words bland & unflattering.  Just check out former UFC Welterweight Champion Johny Hendricks and Miesha Tate in the new Reebok duds: Read the rest of this entry »

imageRecently the great people of Auto Accessories Garage reached out to me to test out the CoverKing NCAA Car Seat covers. At the time, I had no idea it would end up being a great product to save my seats from a car seat. Here’s what I think about it.

QUICK REVIEW:

Quality: A-

Utility: B+

Value: A+

Overall: A-

When I said yes to this product, I had been looking for something safe to put between the seats in back of my Chevrolet HHR and a Graco car seat. I was afraid the car seat would ruin the seats and the value of my car. This product really has helped.

I absolutely love that you can go to on their website, Auto Accessories Garage, and customize your vehicle, seats, dash, etc. For me, I chose to get the Auburn University covers. War Eagle!

"Mom? It's me, Kristaps. They bought it. They think I can actually play. Haha I know right? I'll be home in a few years"

“Mom? It’s me, Kristaps. They bought it. They think I can actually play. Haha I know right? I’ll be home in a few years”

The Knicks weren’t my first love.  Like most 80’s babies, I loved the 90’s Bulls.  I had a fling with the Indiana Pacers in the mid to late 90’s while Reggie Miller was raining 3’s like no one else in the league could, but I broke up with them in ’99 when I attended the 1999 Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 where Larry Johnson hit what was probably the last meaningful shot for the New York Knicks with his 4-point-play. After that, I married the Knicks overnight.  I was swept off my feet when Madison Square Garden erupted as LJ’s 3 hit the bottom of the net, and went on my honeymoon as the fans poured into the streets chanting “Larry! Larry!”.  It was amazing.

It’s been 16 years since I’ve been married to the Knicks, and it’s time I speak out about the abuse and file for divorce.  I’ve received so many black eyes as a Knicks fan over the past decade and a half, but I thought I could be tough and take the beatings.  “Things will get better” I told myself time after time.  But things never did get better.  Sure, the Knicks made a move here and there to keep me around, but overall this marriage has been a huge disappointment.  I’ve never gotten that feeling back that I had in 1999, and tonight was the last straw.  Drafting Kristaps Porzingis is the equivalent of the Knicks kicking me in the face and knocking out any fanhood I have left.  It’s time to take a stand and leave them.

nba2k16

 

2K is already taking pre-orders for the September release of NBA2K16, the latest installment in their basketball franchise.  The cover will feature either Steph Curry, James Harden, Anthony Davis, or Michael Jordan (the first 3 will include the art of the other 2, if you buy the Jordan special edition you won’t get the other art).  While they make improvements and adjustments every year, there are a few items on my list I’d like to see that they won’t be adding, because they want to keep their E for everyone rating.

Conor McGregor predicted Jose Aldo would withdraw from UFC 189 earlier back in 2014.  Aldo reportedly injured his ribs in a training session, and said if they were broken that he wouldn’t fight as scheduled on July 11th.  As it turns out, Jose Aldo only has a bone bruise and a cartilage injury.  The fight is still on, and McGregor’s response on twitter was classic: Read the rest of this entry »

2015 NBA Mock Draft

2015-NBA-draft

The NBA Draft is less than 24 hours away and I’ve channeled the minds of every GM in the league to bring you this mock draft.  This is how the draft should go down.  With the first pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select: Read the rest of this entry »

This scene might have saved the movie.

This scene might have saved the movie.

 

I’m a little late to this party, plus I saw the film last week but I feel a review is necessary.  I wasn’t really a fan of any of the first “Jurassic Park” movies. I suppose the first one is OK, helped by the fact that the greatest actor of all time Jeff Goldblum (See above) is in it.  Now we come to this movie which seems to live by the notion of “Hey, remember that terrible idea we had one time? Well let’s do it again but even bigger!”.  This movie also should have been called “Increasingly Bad Decisions By Corporate America”.

Brian "boom goes the dynamite" Collins is pretty much standard American Sports Broadcasting fodder nowadays

Brian “boom goes the dynamite” Collins is pretty much standard American Sports Broadcasting fodder nowadays

Brian “boom goes the dynamite” Collins was just a college kid when his video made the rounds on the internet.  If you’ve never seen it, the poor guy fumbles awkwardly through a sports segment for Ball State University’s student-run newscast back in 2005.  The clip made its way to EbaumsWorld.com, a popular humor site featuring videos in the pre-YouTube days, and the rest is history.

While it’s perfectly fine for a student to completely bomb as a small-time sports anchor, you’d think professional broadcasters would be held to a higher standard.  Color commentators for the main American sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey) are decent for the most part, but the rest are just brutal.  Whenever I tune into a soccer broadcast, or a golf broadcast, I feel like I’m watching Brian Collins all over again.  Read the rest of this entry »

spieth
Jordan Spieth has won the 2015 US Open after Dustin Johnson 3-putted on the 18th hole at Chambers Bay.  Both Spieth and Johnson hit amazing second shots into the par-5 18th hole.  Spieth missed his eagle try by inches and tapped in for birdie to take a one shot lead.  Johnson followed up in the next group by knocking a 5 iron from 247 yards to within 12 feet. Johnson then knocked his eagle try a good 4 feet by, and then missed the putt to tie.

Behold, a blow by blow breakdown of a typical Terry Collins post game interview.  Warning: This is merely a parody no matter how close to the truth it may seem.
