Sometimes I overhear my single guy friends talking about how they’re going to impress a girl. “She was all about my new jeans” is something one might say. Or, “One look at my new convertible, and she’s all mine.” Yeah, girls think that stuff is cool, but clothes and phones are not “datable” qualities that I hear single girls talk about. This is what’s really up: What you think impresses her: A brand new phone. What actually impresses her: Staying off of it while you’re on a date. Girls like to feel respected, and nothing says, “I’m bored” more than you checking some game score or texting... Read More
Bowling is a great sport. Not only is it a great date atmosphere, but you can continue playing the sport for your entire life. Although the sport is pretty simple at its core (roll the ball, hit pins, repeat) there are some things you should know before you get out to the lanes. So let's get started on a few simple things you should know about the sport of bowling. The first experience most people have with bowling balls come in the form of the "house balls" that bowling alleys put out for new bowlers to use if they don't have their own ball. They work fine for a once-a-year bowler, but they have some limitations: It's... Read More
Ladies and gentlemen, on this Throwback Friday we bring you the best weather report ever. If you haven't seen it, check it out immediately and then read the rest of the article. If you have seen it, then we are here to help you figure out why this report happened. The report was created by a guy named Aaron Justus who used to work for a station in Richmond, Virginia with the call sign WTVR-CBS 6. He was getting ready to leave the station and decided to put together the fake forecast as a farewell sendoff. He explained some more about the background story on his blog: This video was never on air. It was part of an ongoing joke... Read More
You have to love local commercials...cheap, low production quality, and bad acting. In this week's retro video a guy named Sammy Stephens raps and dances for a "Flea Market Montgomery" ad. The Background Sammy was an on-air personality for Montgomery, Alabama's WMGY radio station and was asked to help create a commercial for a local flea market. The video was recorded in 2006, and featured Sammy singing and dancing about the flea market. The concept was pretty simple, but the combination of his rhythm and crazy eyes made this video a viral sensation. What Happened Next? Just remember a couple things before you get all 'uppity'...

Randall Cunningham was the first true dual-threat superstar in the NFL. And there have been other QB's who are as dangerous with their feet as with their arms, but in our opinion no one has topped Cunningham with his blend of speed, accuracy, and football smarts. The Background We had many highlights to pick from when we decided to make Cunningham the focus of Throwback Friday, but none encapsulates the QB as well as this pass to Fred Barnett during a 1990 game against the Buffalo Bills. In the play, Cunningham was throwing from his end zone and was about to be sacked by one of the most feared defensive ends ever, Bruce... Read More

Brian Collins was covering the March 22, 2005 game between the Indiana Pacers and the New Jersey Nets - and it was a horrible performance. Millions of people have seen this video, but not everyone knows the story behind it, so here it is. Collins agreed to be on Ball State University's college newscast because the regular sportscaster was ill. The teleprompter worked, but a new prompter-operator accidentally fast-forwarded through the script. Collins improvised (admittedly, very badly) and uttered the now immortal phrase "boom goes the dynamite." It wasn't all bad for Collins, he landed a job on TV as a reporter, appeared on... Read More
