‘Blood’ shows the maturity of Collective Soul

A few weeks back Collective Soul released their 10th album - Blood. Collective Soul has been one of my favorite bands since the early 90’s release of Hints & Allegations. With catchy hooks, easy grooves, sing-along lyrics, and the just-hard-enough edge to register on my ‘Hard Rock Radar’ - Ed Roland and the guys have made it very easy to stick around to see what comes next. And the next??? Well it may just be their best yet! Read More…

Lets just wait and see...

Today was the big announcement. Cincinnati is (finally??) getting the invitation to the MLS. Yippee! We are going to have three major league sports in our small city, putting us on the field with just a few other in the country. And yet I have to ask…why? Read More…

Watching dread...

If you follow pop culture at all you have heard the term “jump the shark”. This comes from the infamous Happy Days episode when Fonzie jumped over a pool of sharks on waterskis. But it has become known as the moment that Happy Days took a turn that it would never recover from. It was the episode that indicated the end was near. Today that term is used to describe anytime a show hits that point of becoming just plain stupid or irrelevant. When it finally goes from great entertainment to ridiculous attempts to milk the franchise for any last drop of revenue. It is almost always applied in retrospect. You generally don't know the ‘jump the shark’ moment until several episodes or even seasons later. Read More…

How to fix Baseball

I am not a huge baseball fan - for me, the game itself is too slow, too boring, and takes way too long. I understand, and appreciate the history of the game, and as a born-and-raised Cincinnatian, you really have little choice in the matter. However, with each passing generation our society has shorter and shorter attention spans, MLB knows this and is trying desperately to find ways to fix the game. Here are 6 simple Douggiestyle ways to do just that… Read More…

We wear Cincinnati across our chest!

Cincinnati is NOT a big city. In terms of Metro area size we are ranked around 28th or so in the nation. But the country knows Cincinnati. Maybe it is the unique name, or the great people that live here. Maybe it is Skyline Chili & Montgomery Inn, or the fact that we were once a large hub for Delta. Maybe it is a little bit of all of them? My opinion? It is because of our sports.

#Hashtag

You know the little tic-tac-toe board located above the ‘3’ key on a standard keyboard? We called it a ‘pound sign’ growing up, or a ‘number sign’, today they call them ‘hashtags’ and they have a purpose, but i don’t think my Facebook friends understand. Read More…

A trip to remember...

It all started back in March. I had received an email from the Metallic Fan Club. (Yes, I am a huge music fan, a metal head at heart, and a diehard Metallica fan!) Metallica just announced a show the grand opening weekend at the brand-new stadium in Minneapolis on August 20th. Fan club members were going to be offered a chance at a pre-sale for these tickets.

26.2 in your face beyotch!

So I get it. Running a marathon is a feat of physical prowess. I fully admit that I could never do it. I think about it from time to time, and then I think about how much I hate to run. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never run a marathon, a half marathon, or even a 10K. At the bare minimum it is not in my future plans, however you just never know for sure. Read More…
