7 Most Worthless Questions Heard on Sports News Shows

  <strong>Will They Become a Dynasty? Are They Already a Dynasty?</strong><br><br> This question is asked after every sports championship concludes and is a very effective time waster. My biggest problem (among many) with this is that no one has defined "Dynasty" and most agree that the definition of a dynasty changes between eras. <br><br> I love watching world class athletes compete in sports. What I don't care about is fat sports talk guys who wear khaki pants and black silk shirts with brown sandals, argue about where they feel one team ranks among every other team in history, dating back to 1962.  <br><br>That is VERY far removed from why most people enjoy sports
There is a lot of demand for sports news but there isn’t quite as much demand for sports talk, although it is in copious supply. Every sports fan wants to hear the latest news about their favorite teams, players, rivals, etc.  But what they don’t all need is to listen to four dudes giving their... Read more »

Jheri! Jheri! Jheri! The rule for inclusion on this list is pretty easy: The player must have had a Jheri curl for most of that season as far as I could tell. To make this list a player needed to be in both his baseball prime and his plumage prime from about 1986-1989, when baseball... Read more »

The 26 Most Glorious Firework Names

The 26 Most Glorious Firework Names
I recently went to Phantom Fireworks in Merrillville, Indiana to buy some fireworks and became an instant fan of their firework naming team. Even though that store has well over 79 million(* by my estimation) different kinds of fireworks, all the names were pretty amusing. A friend put me in touch with Phantom CEO, Bruce... Read more »

5 (more) Things Hipsters' Love

5. Cats: You know, because dogs are like way too mainstream.  And most people hate cats because cats hate people, shit in a box in your house, and pretend their owners are dead unless they need to eat.  So obviously hipsters have to like them.  If you think about it, it makes perfect sense.  Like cats, hipsters also hate eye contact and only talk to their parents if they need food or money (because they are pursuing a career as a blogger, artist, musician or a sustainable ecosystem consultant).
In case you missed the original “10 Things Hipsters’ Love” post, please check it out as it will get our blog more hits and, unlike hipsters, we aren’t afraid to admit that material things like ” getting more hits” mean something to us.  Anyway, here are a few more things our overly self-aware hipster friends cannot live...
