Super-Bowl-50-Logo

 

The Denver Broncos come into the Super Bowl with a 12-4 regular season record, and a 2-0 postseason record, putting them at 14-4 on the year. That record is good for the best in the entire AFC, but sadly, in the NFC, their competitors beat them out with a 17-1 total record. The Broncos are a strange team to have in the Super Bowl because throughout the season they haven’t really looked “spectacular”. Their veteran leadership has won them games time and time again, and they’ve barely scathed by a few teams. This quality is what makes them a dark horse with the best Super Bowl odds.

Last week I tested out the new Callaway XR 16 driver, and this week I got to hit the new XR OS irons.  The XR OS are now available just about anywhere for $799.  The XR OS iron is the new extension off the Callaway XR line.  The XR iron was the #1 iron sold on the market last year, and Callaway is all about trying to make clubs easier to hit and go farther.  Let’s see if they have done this.

During the 4th quarter of the NFC Championship game, Carolina Panthers LB Luke Keuchley intercepted a Carson Palmer pass and took it to the house.  As Kuechly was celebrating with the fans, one of the fans flipped head over heels onto the field.

Next week, Callaway Golf will be releasing its newest driver, the XR16 on 1/29.  This driver follows up on last year’s popular XR model.  I was able to get my hands on the XR16 today, and compared it to the XR.

Under the hood of the XR was the stock Blue Project X LZ shaft, with 9 degrees of loft.  I have hit this driver A LOT, and was easily my favorite driver of 2015.  After warming up, I took 5 swings and you can see the numbers I pumped out on the left.

Suicide_Squad_in_the_2016_film

Worse heroes ever.  More like best movie ever.  Warner Bros released the official Suicide Squad trailer about an hour ago, and nerds everywhere collectively rejoiced.  The A-List star power in this movie is off the charts.  Suicide Squad has the potential to unseat The Dark Knight as the standard in “comic book movies”.  Check out the trailer after the jump:

PlayStation-5

Artist rendition of the PS5

Aside from wearing out the L3 button on my PS4 controller, I feel like I just bought the current generation Sony PlayStation 4.  Even though its release date of November 15, 2013 is barely more than 2 years ago, the internet is already buzzing about the PS5.  I’ve come across a ton of rumors, concept art, and release date speculations for the next gen console.

17290_Converse_all_stars_white

Sometimes it feels like there are more new shoes out there for guys than anyone could know what to do with. While we definitely classify this as one of those “good problems,” it can be tough to figure out the right pair for you that will also be on trend while lasting you throughout the season. These are a few of the coolest kicks from 2015 that we think you should be rocking into the next year.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II

It’s hard to improve on a classic, but somehow Converse managed the impossible in 2015. The company redesigned its iconic Chuck Taylor All Stars and somehow managed to make the quintessential sneaker style even better. The shoe retains all of the old-school style that provided much of its popularity while adding a Lunarlon insole that is decidedly more comfortable than the older model. Somehow, these shoes not only look better but also feel better. Read the rest of this entry »

Omg I'm tweeting!

Omg I’m tweeting!

 

Every list you find on the internet is a best of this or a best of that list.  No one ever talks about the negative so I’ve decided to change that.  On the surface, Twitter seems like a really great thing but if you actually use it on a regular basis you will realize that it’s a cesspool of trolls, weirdos, plagiarists, and psychotics.   These are the worst kinds of Tweeters in no particular order…

Turn on any nationally televised San Antonio Spurs home game, and you’ll hear a woman screaming and cheering for her team the entire time.  “Wooooooooooo!” “Come on, Timmy!”  “Go LaMarcus!”.  It never ends, and it’s been going on for at least 3 years.  A few years ago the woman in the above picture was identified as said fan.  I just hope the Spurs do the right thing and revoke (or at least relocate) her season tickets.

The good people at the Detroit Grooming Co. sent me some of their Grooming Oil, Beard Butter, and Pomade to try out.  The have a plethora of grooming products on their website, DetroitGrooming.com, with the bearded man in mind.

QUICK REVIEW

Utility: B

Quality: B+

Price/Value: B-

Overall: B

I’ve been sporting a beard for the past 5 months or so, but I keep it trimmed rather than to approach full-on hipster status.  For the purpose of this review, though, I did let it get a little longer than I normally wear it so I could test out the products better.

First, I tried the Grooming Oil, or “beard oil” as this type of product is commonly referred to.  The product conditions your beard so it’s less rough to the touch that it would be without it.  I have sensitive skin, though, and I broke out a little after using it for a few days.  I don’t think this is typical of the product, I blame this one on my parents and the genes they passed on to me.

I then moved onto the Beard Butter, and had solid results.  It softened my beard and kept it neat.  If you have sensitive skin like myself, this may be your best option.

The Pomade is a styling product offered by Detroit Grooming that I used on my hair.  I’m a big fan of pomade over other hair styling products like gel or wax, and I was happy with the results.  Highly recommended if you’re looking for a compact hair styling product.
