Bad News: There Was A Fire At The Collmont Last Night. Good News: Damage Was Contained

Good God almighty, when I saw a tweet from Jen Miller this morning that served as notice of a blaze at Tom Fischer’s Tavern in Westmont (08108 represent!), I thought the worst. And from those pictures on the right of that montage atop that post (credit to Miller and newjerseyfireground), it’s hard to blame me.…

Marriage Boot Camp II: Reunion Show

They call this Marriage Boot Camp episode “The Aftermath.” It was filmed six months after the show ended. Fair enough. Thoughts: 1. I mean, you knew there was going to be a brawl in the last episode. 2. Not sure I’m going to be able to watch this whole show, but Rob and Remy from…

The Idaho GOP Gubernatorial Debate Was The Best Political Debate In American History

Chances are you’ve already seen the EPIC debate between four Republican candidates for the Idaho governor’s office. But if you haven’t, I highly recommend you do. Seriously. If you don’t have 57 minutes to spare, scroll along the bottom bar to moments when you see either Harley Brown or Walt Bayes on the screen. Their…

The Floyd Mayweather Vs. Marcos Maidana Fight, As Told By Two Vines

Finally had a chance to watch the Mayweather/Maidana fight from somewhere other than Section 219 of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. When I walked out of the arena last Saturday, I scored it a draw. When I watched it on Showtime last night, I agreed with a Mayweather win, but not by as big a…

Here’s A Preview Of The Mayweather/Maidana All-Access Finale

I’ve written a bunch about the Floyd Mayweather/Marcos Maidana fight already, what with being there and all. But it’s going to be nice to see it on Showtime tomorrow night, as opposed to Section 219 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. And this preview of tomorrow night’s All Access offers a flavor of what to…

Yes You Can Walk Around Vegas With A Fractured Ankle For 39.5 Hours. Ask Me How!

It was a different pain. For someone plagued by ankle issues since a leg-shattering soccer injury in ’90, that represented an oh-sh*t moment. It was sharp. It was jarringly diffuse, going beyond the standard ankle roll. And I was committed to ignore it, even though there was no friggin’ way I could. Two thirty in…

Here’s Some Pictures And Video From The Floyd Mayweather Vs. Marcos Maidana Fight

The best thing about going to a prize fight in Las Vegas is everything about going to a prize fight in Las Vegas. What an electric scene at the MGM Grand on Saturday night when the judges decided that Floyd Mayweather defeated Marcos Maidana. Watching it live from section 219 (bought tickets the day before,…

Let’s Try Out A Hangover ‘Remedy’ That Was Sent For Reviewing Purposes

First time I tried “Hangover Sucks” was a weekday hosting-Quizzo-induced hangover. The initial thing that struck me about it: Not really the nicest of tastes. However, two lozenges temporarily battled back a slight headache (but, I still still needed to drop an aspirin or two when it reared back up within an hour). However, the…

Coincidentally aired a week before Philly experiences a “Black Market butt implant” trial of its own, American Hero Carl Monday investigated said issue. Here is what he shared with viewers, complete with…
