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.

After Sidney Crosby took a vicious cross check during the first period of game three against the Washington Capitals, the Pittsburgh Penguins have ruled out Crosby for game four of the series. With Crosby’s history of concussions, one could imagine that this might be a longer term issue than just game four. This is the time when the team’s other superstar, Evgeni Malkin, will have the spotlight on him.

2016 was a truly special year for the UFC.  From the sale of the promotion, to the incredible amount of top-notch events.  As we now come up to the fifth month of the year, UFC 211 is the first mega-card of the year.  There are two title bouts and three other matches on the pay per view portion that could certainly be the main event of a UFC on Fox card. Not to mention, the featured bout on the prelims has one former title holder taking on a top flight contender. Let’s take a look at who’s fighting.
