Paying It Forward

Written by
Paying it Forward... One shirt at a time! By now you know the Cavs Larry Nance Jr. is giving back to economically stressed local businesses. The Grog Shop was one of those businesses.  Nance wore their shirt in warm-ups pregame and then auctioned off his game worn jersey and matched the donation for a nice donation in a time of struggle...   Now the Grog Shop is giving back with merch and paying it forward to Heights Schools Foundation.  Help and find out more below. Check out the shirt and more merch at their website by Clicking Here Here is The…

Lebron's Taking His Talents Elsewhere

Written by
Lebron is off Coke...  Coca-Cola, that is... After 17+ years of pitching one soft drink...  The former Cav and now Laker has decided to take his talents elsewhere. To PepsiCo.  He is in line to push Mt. Dew in the near future.  Pepsi has been the NBA's Official Sponsor since 2015.   It only makes sense that the best player, on the Planet or at least one of them, would be pushing the same brands.   Click here to find out more.

Picture This

Written by
My son doodles during homeschooling.  If he is getting the work done, who am I to curb his creativity? After a few days, I always make sure he didn't forget to turn something in to his teacher.  I looked and found this gem the other day.  Note: He has never watched the movie! I approached him with picture in hand.  I said, "Buddy is...." he stopped me dead. He replied "Isn't it funny it's RAINBOW instead of Rambo..."  and just belly laughed. If you were wondering, where I get it from.  He is 8.

Happy Dave Grohl Day!

Written by
Today is Dave Grohl's Birthday and I'll peel the layers of how much there is going on in his world.

The list goes on and on... The Foo Fighters New Album is due out February 5th it is called "Medicine at Midnight".   It contains Shame, Shame, No Son of Mine and Waiting on a War...  Oh and it has apparently been completed for a year.

As you are probably well aware we have missed a lot of great events. Dr. Fauci said the other day that "concert venues and theaters could open Fall 2021." We are all looking for little victories, that light at the end of the tunnel... To stand up like Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carey) in Dumb and Dumber... "One in a million.  So you're telling me there's a chance." St. Patricks Day doesn't look like that light or chance.  Cleveland St. Patrick's Parade and Akron's St. Patrick's Parade were both canceled. We did get some good news this week.  The Cities of…

Urie The Problem?

Written by
Last week, I noticed Panic! At The Disco Singer Brendon Urie was getting some major shade.  As an outsider I would say the reasons of blame could be easily proved wrong.  But that did not stop the blame game from happening on Twitter. We love you Brendon even if you are the root of all people's problems!  Read the blame game by Clicking Here.

Don't Get Ripped 'Hoff'!

Written by
If you are of a certain age.  You may remember, Michael Knight of Knightrider Fame had a talking car named 'KITT'. It is a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and is being auctioned off.  This one doesn't talk or have boosters or anything.  It was 'The Hoffs'.  Right now the bid sits at $375,000 with a max of $950,000.  If you can't afford the car there is plenty of David's Memorabilia from America's Got Talent, Baywatch and Baywatch...  There is also a Doppelganger or should I say 'Hoff'elganger that is 15 feet long. It was used for the SpongeBob Movie. …

Helping with Hops!

Written by
If you are like most.  Your alcohol intake is up and your community output is lacking.  Mainly, because it's a pandemic. I love music!  Especially live music.  My final show before 2020 hit was "The Yawpers" at The Beachland.   Since the world has closed down and started to reopen.  Music Venues like Beachland Ballroom, Grog Shop,  Mahall's and Happy Dog have been struggling due to guidelines.  How can you help? 1.

Ring-ing in 2021!

Written by
Ringing in the New Year never hit just right. This New Guiness World Record will have everyone saying "I Do"!   I would say this ring with 12,638 diamonds is highly desired.  This ring earned it's name the 'Ring of Prosperity'. Click here to see this monster. What happened to the old mantra of spending a month or two worth of paychecks?
