Here's the timeline: November 5, 2009 - Nike files for a patent for the Nike Air Mag "Marty McFly's". August 27, 2010 - Ray finds out about it, gets excited, and writes an article about it. Spring 2010 - Ray plays all of the new Back to The Future video games and wishes he was wearing the "Marty McFly's"? while doing so. September 8, 2011 - Ray wakes up to this news in his inbox: Nike is announcing something big tonight at 8:30 LA time, and all indications point to it being the Marty McFly's. Great Scott! The dreams of every kid who went to see Back To The Future in theaters are about to be answered. Bro Council relaunches, and Nike announces this? We... Read More
Pat has an animal conspiracy. I don't know exactly what the conspiracy consists of, but I got an email that said: So I'm hoping to hear more about this "conspiracy" later, and you can ask him about it on Twitter at @brocouncilpat - until we find out what the conspiracy is, you should check out the article. It's actually pretty hilarious. Angry Bear's Prius Car Ride
So we usually post funny or low key articles here on Bro Council, but right now we want to send our condolences, prayers, and thoughts to those affected by the plane crash carrying a KHL team earlier this morning. For those of you who don't know, the KHL is the Russian version of the NHL. There were 42 people on board the plane, and early reports show that two people may have survived. You can check out a video report after the break - just click on "Read More". The most similar experience that we faced in the US before was the crash of Southern Airways Flight 932 carrying 37 members of the Marshall University Football Team in 1970.
Today we have our first celebrity submission to the site (if you don't count Bro Council staff as celebrities of course). Today's submission comes from Justin Hartwig - Super Bowl Champion, 9 year veteran of the NFL, and a really funny dude. He sent us a video that reminds me why so many people miss the 80's. Here's to bringing back VHS dating services! (Photo Note: The above photo shows why Justin is allowed to post on the site. Bro Council, Approved.)
As if being obscenely rich weren’t enough, but then I see this…and loathe them even more. Heck with it, I've had enough of Bro Council's low wages and Ray's constant harassment in the office - I'm going to work here. (Editor's Note - the picture of Pat and a monkey has nothing to do with a Ferrari. Pat said on his @brocouncilpat Twitter handle that I was Photoshopping pictures of him to make him look silly - this proves Photoshop isn't necessary.)
This has to be one of funniest stories of all summer thanks in part to the picture. A monkey takes his own picture, yet Ray can't figure out FaceTime on his iPhone. (Editors Note - AKA Ray - I don't even own an iPhone anymore, and thanks to Pat's insult I am going to ignore the easy comeback of making Pat look like the monkey in the intro picture, and will just get him back later.)
