The biggest professional sports spectacle is just under a week away and after eight days of hype I’m finally ready to make my prediction. There’s been a lot of discussion about the former Giants coaches facing off for a second time in the Superbowl, and how the loser from in past three post-season matchups of [...]
In a short while, fellow EoTer David Binkowski will publish his thoughts on the Super Bowl. This is a preemptive strike because I know exactly what he’s going to say. Why do I care? Well, first off, I’m a die hard Pats fan. Always have been, always will be. I grew up in a time [...]
One of the biggest run ups to the Super Bowl is the media frenzy over the high-priced (and usually mostly disappointing) crop of commercials for the big game. The spot that has already been well leaked and spread via social media has been Matthew Broderick’s mysterious Ferris Bueller spot. The 10-second teaser clip was released [...]
Today might be the annual NFL Pro Bowl game, but the real deal is next week when the New England Patriots battle the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. That’s Super Bowl 46 for those of you who can’t count in Latin. If you’re lucky enough to go like me (sorry for the brag!), [...]
There’s a phenomenon I’ve encountered since moving to Jersey about 5 years ago that boggles my mind, so I’m writing this post to see if I’m alone or if it’s just a local, cultural, thing. No, I’m not talking about spray tanning, I’m referring to the use of the car horn. In this case, locals [...]

In case you haven’t seen them, the new 1800 Tequila ads are priceless. Actor Michael Imperioli (former Detroit 1-8-7 star) stars in a series of dead pan ads poking fun at today’s “men”. Last year’s spots were mediocre at best, taking pot shots at more upscale competitor tequilas. That said, this year’s ads are hilarious. Here’s [...]
This has been a great bowl season for Every Other Thursday readers that took my advice have come out well ahead. This is the last college game for a while so let’s get to it.
It’s being reported that a new Dad was not allowed to see his prematurely born twins at the hospital because hip hop mogul Jay-Z and his diva wife Beyonce asked that the hospital shut down wards of the building to protect their privacy.
That’s right 1985 Chicago Bears fans: defense really doesn’t matter anymore. The vaunted Monsters of the Midway of the mid 1980s might have trouble winning in today’s NFL where league rules have changed the game forever. No longer is defense rewarded or toughness matter as much as it used to. Instead, quarterbacks and the high-flying [...]
