What Kind of Bears Are The Chicago Bears?

Officially I’m pretty sure the Chicago Bears are the Chicago Grizzly Bears or the Chicago Brown Bears same species of bear, but slightly different. The current team alternate logo seems to resemble that of a grizzly bear’s face. Staley Da Bear, the official team mascot, resembles a grizzly (photo below) and listed “Grizzly Adams” as his...

Why Cats Play With String

For some reason my cat thinks she is a hunter. This is despite the fact that she once attempted to kill a spider for 15 minutes only to eventually lose it under the fridge. It doesn’t matter, because in her mind she is the greatest hunter the world has ever seen and she likes to show... Read more »

The Best Worst Commercial

I have a great fondness for garbage entertainment. I can enjoy a really bad film like Paul Blart 2 or The Ridiculous 6 almost as much as I enjoy something like Roma or Lady Bird. So when I saw this ad for ooVoo I was in heaven. It has everything you could want from a commercial:... Read more »

Why Dogs Roll in Dead Things

I’ve been spending a lot more time around dogs lately. I’m at the point in my life where my friends will either start having kids or just get a dog instead. So, I’ve been to a lot of random dog parks and I’ve observed quite a lot of weird dog behavior. While at a dog... Read more »

Did Adam Sandler Steal This Song?

After I posted my review of Adam Sandler’s new Netflix comedy special, 100% Fresh, I received an email from a reader saying that Sandler had actually stolen material and they had proof. In the special Sandler performs many short songs and one of the best is “Phone, Wallet, Keys”. A song about the three items... Read more »

Adam Sandler's New Netflix Special is not 100% Fresh

Adam Sandler’s first comedy special in over 20 years was released on Netflix last night and unfortunately it’s an overproduced mess. It’s filled with missed opportunities, Sandler giving up on jokes, and so many harsh cuts it feels like an hour long music video. Below are notes that I took during my viewing session along with...

2018 Monday Night Football is Straight Garbage

With the departure of the sentient Chucky doll known as Jon Gruden, ESPN decided to give Monday Night Football a complete makeover. The MNF team now consists of play-by-play by Joe Tessitore, analysts by Jason Witten and Booger McFarland, and sideline reporter Lisa Salters. So far the biggest letdown has been Jason Witten. He’s very stiff on camera and just doesn’t... Read more »

I'm a Veteran and I Hate the NFL

Ever since I was little I’ve always loved my Chicago Bears. It doesn’t matter to me that they’ve constantly let me down and last year attempted to start a human-giraffe hybrid at quarterback. I love them anyway. It’s the same love a father has for a son who constantly disappoints him. But the NFL, and Rodger... Read more »

Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 is Pure Genius

Back in 2009 Kevin James introduced us to the completely unoriginal, unfunny, and mean spirited character that is Paul Blart Mall Cop. The original film, despite being critically panned, went on to make over $146 million at the box office. So, naturally, they had to make a sequel. It somehow took over 6 years for them... Read more »

Adam Sandler Please Stop

Over a year ago I started a podcast called “Adam Sandler Please Stop” with my friend Marie Maloney. It’s a podcast where we watch every Adam Sandler movie in order of theatrical release and rank them as we go. Marie and I both started out as pretty big Sandler fans. We thought, sure, he’s had...
