As we gear up for this holiday season, it is important to remember that embodying the holiday spirit means more than just buying some fancy gifts for your loved ones. In 2017, a year which has seen a disproportionate number of global tragedies, it is perhaps more important than ever to try to help those who are less fortunate. While many charitable efforts this year have focused on areas devastated by hurricanes, like Puerto Rico and Houston, today we’re bringing your attention to a pervasive, ubiquitous issue in India.

The Mighty Mug: A Solution to End Spilling

If you’re the type of person who is always damaging your carpet, electronics, and furniture with spills, the Mighty Mug just might be the most important invention since the light bulb. I recently had the chance to test out some of Mighty Mug’s long line of products, and I must say, I was pretty impressed. While at first glance, Mighty Mug might appear to be an infomercial-ready gimmick that isn’t quite as cool once you get it out of the box and into your home, I can attest to the factRead More

Cocktail Treats for Super Bowl LI

This Sunday, the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons will square off in Super Bowl LI, which is 51, not a Chinese last name. Assuming you’re like most Americans, I can guess two things: 1) You want the Patriots to lose more than you want either team to win, and 2) You’re going to be drinking heavily on Sunday – both because it’s the Super Bowl and because Donald Trump is burning our country to the ground. Drink up, kids. To get you ready for your Sunday debauchery for eitherRead More

26th birthday
Today is my 26th birthday. Two years ago, on my 24th birthday, I wrote a list of the 24 lessons life had taught me in 24 years. So, on this, my 26th birthday, I would like to amend and add to that list. Some things change, some stay the same. Here’s what 26 years on this planet have taught me: 1. Don’t drink shitty beer. If it ain’t craft-brewed, it likely tastes like horse piss. 2. Not everyone finds offensive jokes funny. Some people find them offensive. These people suck, though.Read More

Last year, I was lucky enough to go to Indianapolis to see the Your Hero’s Name Here 400 (formerly known as the Brickyard 400) in person. I was able to take in the race, and get to meet the heroes that had competed for the naming rights, including last year’s winner, Jeff Kyle. It was an amazing event, and one that I am proud to support. This year, the field has been narrowed down to five finalists, who you can learn more about here. Vote for your choice by JuneRead More
This weekend, the sporting world will turn to Louisville, as the Kentucky Derby takes the stage. And, as we all know, the Kentucky Derby is about a few things in addition to horses – gambling, big hats, and whiskey.
