10 Best Uniforms in American Sports

10 Best Uniforms in American Sports
I like ‘em classic, minimalist, and, well that’s really about it. You will find neither teal, purple, dinosaurs dribbling a basketball, ornate designs, open-mouthed salivating animals, birds of prey, or ethnic-groups-as-mascots on this list.

Top 5 Saved by the Bell Rivalries

Top 5 Saved by the Bell Rivalries
I miss me some good ol’ TNBC. For those of you who don’t remember, TNBC stood for “Teen NBC” and inaccurately portrayed high school life to children 12-and-under every Saturday morning from 1992-2002, beginning at 10am – long before any “teens” actually wake up. The show that paved the way to this laugh-track riddled block... Read more »

30 Good Things About Being 30 Years old
After turning 30 I have felt more comfortable in my own skin than I have in a while. Some of the things that came along with being older have been a pleasant surprise, others I have always looked forward to. I gave it some thought and enumerated my 30 favorite.

TOP TEN D-BAG BARS IN CHICAGO

TOP TEN D-BAG BARS IN CHICAGO
We’ve all been to a couple of these places on accident (your girlfriend made you go, work function, you followed your sister’s friends thinking you’d hook up), but if you frequent these places, in all likelihood you are a ragin’ D-bag.

TOP 25 SPORTS/POP CULTURE LOOK-ALIKES

Here at Lists That Actually Matter we know this concept has been done before and we know that you thought it sucked.  We too wish ESPN’s Page 2 was funny.  We also wish Jeff Garcia would stop calling us and demanding he looks like Debra Messing from season 2 of Will & Grace.  Anyway, this...

18 Things Aborigines Might Appreciate

My friend Dickerson's immediate answer  upon being asked what he'd bring them. I particularly enjoy the absurdist/abstract aspect of it this. It's gotta sort of a Duchamp-meets-Motley-Crue- at-a-RedBull-Event quality that is nice as well.
Wouldn’t it be cool to be friends with some tribal aboriginal people somewhere in Australia or Africa or South America? Maybe you have a  friend that is related to aborigines and he took you to visit them and stay a week and they were truly beautiful people who changed your outlook on life, they also... Read more »

Top 5 Things We Learned About the Bears in Week 1

These are the top 5 things we learned about our fledgling young Bears in Week 1.  For example, we already knew the Bears O-line sucked before Week 1.  Week 1 simply reinforced every NFL analysts/experts’ opinion that the O-line is dreadful.  Lovie, Angelo, and crew thought they could fix their O-line by using the “Remote...

North Coast Music Festival: Hell is Other People- The 8 Types of People that Annoy you at Concerts

Awesome Exception #4<br><br>While I was sitting on the grass watching a musician I felt a hand palming my head as though it were a friend who saw me and opted to greet me in a weird way. While wondering who it could be, I looked up and then saw an ass about 7 inches above my forehead. It was a chick I'd never seen before who palmed my head then lifted her leg and stepped over me just to be funny. She looked back and smiled. She was attractive so I was cool with it. About 3 minutes after that I saw a guy holding up a small sign about the size of a ping pong paddle. My view was obstructed, so I couldn't see what the sign said but his body language indicated he was indeed the standard bearer for a very important and dignified sign, holding it proudly for all to see. As he neared I could see it was a homemade sign that read simply, "Fuck Yeah".
A friend got me a Press Pass to the North Coast Music Festival and some VIP treatment at an afterparty. Upon thanking him for the access he told me that I could repay him by making a list on this blog that documented the worst things about the Festival. After inspecting the grounds I found...
