The Anaheim Ducks Won a Hockey Game

Widely expected to be one of the worst teams in the NHL this season, the Ducks get their first win of the season in game three. Anaheim started their season with a 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights, a 2-1 loss in overtime to Vegas, and now a 1-0 win against the vaunted Minnesota Wild. […]

All Hail our Internet Overlords

It’s Friday, early afternoon. The sky overcast, the air crisp. But I didn’t truly feel a chill until I received the text from my wife. A truly terrifying reality. Fortunately I went to school for Network Administration and was able to pass along my knowledge in a clear, concise manner. Internet runs my life. Pretty […]

BREAKING: The NHL Returns Tonight

Today is the day: the NHL is finally back!!! It really gets going tomorrow night at 10 PM ET / 9 PM CT, Ducks @ Golden Knights, but whatever, semantics. Hockey is back, and I have emotions. With hockey returning (in case you hadn’t heard), I thought I’d do something very timely and Power Rank […]

Throwback Tuesday – Jersey Edition

It sounds like the NHL might be introducing fourth jerseys for the upcoming season, whenever that is. Teams playing in the outdoor games always get a special jersey, but this would be a true fourth jersey for every team in the league. The theme is “reverse retro,” which is essentially a remix of a throwback […]

The Problem with Stuff

I love stuff. I don’t really care about money. But I love stuff. So I have to work and make money. But really I just love stuff. The best part about stuff? Having it. The worst part? Not having it. I wouldn’t say I have a lot of stuff, but I have more than I […]

Let Me Set the Mood Right

It’s Friday night. The kids are in bed. The weekend is here. You and your significant other want to relax and enjoy some alone time. How do you properly set the mood, though? You gotta start with the basics. Slip into something comfortable. Don’t overcomplicate things. Me? I just go with shorts and t-shirt. Sweats […]
