We Saw a Rare Triple Play Happen This Weekend

I’m not talking about the New York Yankees. I’m talking about the Eau Claire Nationals 8U team. Have you ever seen 7- and 8-year-olds turn a triple play? Of course you haven’t. But I have. Twice actually. In the same game. One of them was unassisted. I don’t have a video or a picture or […]

Power Ranking the Settings on a Spray Nozzle

In honor of my day, a very important ranking. 1. JET Clearly number one, it’s one of two settings that you’ll ever actually use. It’s functional and fun. Equally up to the task of cleaning up messes and mowing down your children in a water fight. Both very important. 2. SHOWER The other setting that […]

Today in Commercials I Hate

Rocket Mortgage brings us today’s gem folks. OK, I’ll bite. How dumb is this guy? I am incapable of understanding the stupidity this man demonstrated. Even if you actually thought there was money inside your walls, would you just take a god damn hammer to your walls? No, because you have at minimum a semi-functional […]

Here Are Some Songs That Shouldn’t Be in Kid’s Movies but Are Anyway

Pixar’s latest flick, Luca, is coming out next week. It looks to be another lovely movie for the whole family. A beautiful coming-of-age tale about friendship or something. Cool story bro. What about the proliferation of adult themes in these movies? Death/murder. Whether or not living cars have organs. Characters named Lord Farquaad. You can […]

True Growth as a Father

The other day I had an epiphany: soon I won’t have to rely solely on dad jokes. I can now add Father of the Bride quotes to the repertoire (unironically). I’m very excited. Here are some examples of the things you can come to expect from me for the rest of my life. “For two […]

Today in Commercials I Hate

Hey guys, it’s Nick again, and here’s another dumbass commercial. You know what’s really in right now? Quality. But there are many kinds of qualities. So what quality is most important? I’m glad you asked. Quality in quality. You don’t want just regular quality. It needs to be the quality kind. Quality, if you will. […]

Fairfield Baseball Coach Misses Regional Game for a Reason

In between Women’s College World Series games yesterday, I was flipping through some college baseball games (much more boring). During a recap show, I heard a tidbit of information that absolutely stunned me. To the point I had to rewind it (I don’t like to brag but I have Hulu Live) so my wife could […]

Overrated Things About Being a Dad

“Nick Jr.” I hear that a lot about my kids. Pretty much anytime someone interacts with them. Even though it typically follows some loud or obnoxious thing they’ve done, I always take it as a compliment. Not because I think it has any reflection on me, but because my kids are awesome. And I choose […]

Hockey Players Are the Toughest Athletes on the Planet

I’m not going to sit here and pretend that hockey players are tougher than other athletes. It’s just a fact so I don’t have to pretend. I mean it’s right there in the title. And tonight we got another example of that from Vincent Trocheck. The dude can’t even skate, and even though he’s trying […]
