Season 22: The Johnnies Road To The Final Four Begins

Tonight marks my 22nd seasons as a St. John’s fan. I fell hard for the team as an 8-year-old kid in 1989. That season the Johnnies point guard Greg “Boo” Harvey hit a bunch of game-winning last second shots. Jayson Williams and Malik Sealy were the other stars on the team. My local newspaper, Newsday, [...]

LittyHoops Cookbook: The 5 Hour Acai-E Popsicle

A few months back I made an executive culinary decision to invest in a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. This marvelous technological device freezes popsicles in just seven to nine minutes. It’s positively scientific to watch a liquid concoction instantly freeze before thy own very eyes. Not one to lick my own popsicle, I’m somewhat known [...]

What It’s Like To Occupy Wall Street

I’ve mentioned a few times in this blog that I’m not a big fan of the present day news media. They have an uncanny ability to make a mockery out of just about anything. True to form, the media has been all over the place in their coverage of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Despite [...]

The weekend before last, two buddies and I decided to venture out and explore the islands of Lake Titicaca in Peru. Perhaps faintly familiar to you for its lewd sounding name, the highest navigable lake in the world has much more to offer than a few giggles. At 12,500 feet above sea level, the lake [...]

The Pro Sweet 16…Will Be Both Televised & Pretty Dope

You may or may not care that the NBA is in the midst of a work stoppage that might wipe out the entire 2011-2012 season. Bill Simmons cares. He recently went all sports guy on us by explaining how the president guy in the movie Dave would be able to solve this lockout. I would [...]

Education Needs To Learn Something New

I’ve been hung up lately on the idea that college, especially private schools, are a financial rip-off. I am having trouble understanding the actual direct value of a $125K (and increasing) undergraduate degree. Even if there are real benefits, I haven’t met many students that realize them. I’m not a big fan of traditional, structured [...]

Awesome Website Bro: Spotify Is Killing It

In my little social sphere Spotify has been killing it for quite some time. Hopefully, the rest of you ignorant Gringos have stopped listening to Grooveshark by now and have jumped aboard the Spotify soul train. It sure is moving fast as Spotify has reportedly amassed 1.4 million users in less than one month.

Sexy Data

The cool kids in the digital world have been pumped by the innovations in social media and mobile apps over the last few years. There’s a big wide web full of friends, followers, circles, deals, apps, likes and +1’s. Us social media gurus in the know are often quick to preach to the digitally unenlightened [...]

My New Friends

Although my resume says I’m a college sports aficionado, I’m no recruiting guru. Many college sports fans are though. I suppose the allure is to get the inside scoop on future stars. It’s a warm cutesy feeling to discover a player, or at least knew about him from the very start. My buddy Lil Daddy [...]
