I’m not a coffee person. I can honestly say I’ve never tried a cup before in my life. The bitter smell never appealed to me, so as an adult needing a morning pick-me-up, I usually went with an energy drink (Red Bull, Monster Ultra and Kick Start’s being my go-to).
Well, apparently, energy drinks are awful for your heart, and since I’d like to stay alive to see a Cincinnati team finally make a post-season run in the late 2030’s, I figure I’d try to find some other way to wake up in the morning. The other day at Kroger, I saw this caffeine gum called Alert in the check-out aisle.
Full disclosure: this isn’t really from today, but hey, who cares. I saw it over the weekend and can’t stop thinking about it, so here it is: $17.5 million in a bedframe.
Apparently these were funds allegedly “earned” in a pyramid scheme. The person that had gotten the funds tried to launder it, and boom, they got busted. If I’m the cop that walks in on this $17.5 million, I’m retiring tomorrow. Looks like there’s only $10 million there to me. I’m heading to Aruba.
It’s good to know that a standard bedframe can probably hold close to $30 million though, for my future in pyramid scheming. Apparently this person was just one part in a multi-billion dollar scheme of home phone/internet package sales. That means that a lot of people probably got away with it. It’s almost worth the risk. Almost.
Okay, back to my soul-sucking desk job. Maybe I’ll win the lottery soon. I can dream, can’t I?
Taco Bell is a favorite for several of us at Milliron Sports we have all spent a lot of time and money over the years at this factory of deliciousness. They will always be known for experimenting with different menu items, and it is very exciting for all of us at Milliron Sports. (Yes we are fat guys!)
Today Jefe sees if Taco Bell’s latest creation is a major hit or epic fail. As always in this segment I will rate each item on a 1(gross)-10(get in my belly) scale. If you try it and disagree please let me know!
Be sure to comment below on any items you want to see me try. Also, let me know what your favorite Taco Bell menu item is and I will give it a try.
The Reds are coming off of a pretty underwhelming seven game road trip where they managed to pile up one W. Today, the Colorado Rockies come to
Cincinnati for a three game series at GABP. Whenever they come to town, I’m reminded of a traumatic experience I had as a kid at a Reds/Rockies game.
Let me set the stage for you. The year is 1998. On a warm May day, the pudgy pre-pubescent 12 year old version of me is pumped to be heading to Riverfront stadium with my uncle and siblings. We didn’t go to a ton of Reds games when I was a kid (2-3 a year, tops), so that day was a special treat. A pregame meal of Skyline and soda had me hyped up as we took our seats near the outfield foul territory along the 3rd base line. Continue reading
The guys face says it all. It’s everything he ever wanted and more. He was so excited to finally get his shot with the girl of his dreams.
This past Friday, instead of watching Lebron and Co. destroy the Raptors in game 3 or watching the Reds smoke the Giants 13-3, the wife and I decided to go see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 at a jammed packed movie theater. We both really liked the first GOTG, and Chris Pratt may be my favorite actor currently; I think we could be best friends in real life, and Andy from Parks and Rec may be one of my favorite sitcom characters of all time.
