Hungry Hungry Jefe #5: Grippo’s BBQ Beef Jerky

It’s Memorial Day weekend the perfect time to fire up that grill. If you’re like me a bag of Grippo’s BBQ potato chips is being consumed as you wait for them delicious burgers and dogs to cook. These chips are a staple of any holiday cookout, the barbecue seasoning is the perfect blend of spices that keep eating one an impossible task. That’s why when I saw Grippo’s BBQ Beef Jerky made by Pap’s I had to give it a try, watch the video below to see what I thought of this twist on a Cincinnati Classic.

Despite My Best Efforts, Cincinnati Named Ohio’s Fittest City

Cincinnati.com – Cincinnati is the most fit city in Ohio and in the top 30 in the United States according to the newest American Fitness Index Ranking.

The rankings are done by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Anthem Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Anthem, Inc. The Fitness Index evaluated America’s 100 largest cities using 33 health behaviors, chronic diseases and community infrastructure indicators.

Cincinnati snagged No. 29, which is 20 spots higher than the next closest Ohio city. 

No, that’s not a typo – it says “fittest”. I know, I had to double check the article myself. I’ve been doing everything in my power so far in 2018 to keep Cincinnati out of the rankings, but maybe I just didn’t try hard enough. I’ve been doing nothing but eating Skyline cheese coneys since we rang in the new year (I’m already halfway to my goal of 400 for the year, no big deal #ConeyWatch2018 #MacsConeyChallenge). I even quit my workout plan after one trip to the gym in mid-January. What else could I have done to keep this from happening?  Continue reading

Jefe’s 25 Beers ‘til Christmas: Day 13

Welcome to the thirteenth day of Jefe’s 25 Beers ’til Christmas today I tried another hometown beer. It was from a brewery I have tried before, but I am not very familiar with them. I will be rating their Winter Ale on a 1 to 5 scale. I have been a big fan of Cincinnati beers so far, so how did this one rate?

The Nati Boys start the show off with some NBA talk, including KD being caught red-handed on Twitter, Kyrie not giving a shit what LeBron thinks, and the Lakers being piss poor, but rich.  Hockey is also back with pre-season games dropping the puck Tuesday night; we preview the CBJ season, and look forward to some sweet hockey fights.  We end the show talking football, with previews of the Buckeyes and Bearcats weekends, and then our NFL picks.  Our fantasy draft this week is of our favorite backups, inspired by AJ McCarron having the back of our starter, Andy Dalton.

Ranking the Reds On-field 4th of July Hats

If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team.  Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July.  Here are my personal rankings of the hats.  Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @MillironDB.

First to worst:

2011

2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far.  It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo.  It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.

I still wear this hat; I wore it to the Reds/Brewers game this past Wednesday night.  Love it.
