9 Bros You’ll See In The Gym Every Time You Work Out

9 Bros You’ll See In The Gym Every Time You Work Out

The gym is a great place to vent and let out all of the pent-up hostility you’ve accumulated throughout the workday, while also getting yourself in shape in the process. Whenever I have a tough day at work, the idea of punching out and going for a nice long run is always one of consolation. If I’m […]

Elite Tennis Preview: Jo-Willy Tsonga Primed For A Run In Buenos Aires

Frenchie, man, the f*ck happened, my dude? I swear I didn't sleep Monday night after the Tiafoe match. First set was a joy: a tiebagel in the first breaker. Second set, eh, he dropped the tiebreak after being up a mini at 4-2. Then, jeez, that third set. After going up a break, he had […]

Why It’s Actually A Good Thing If Your Friends Rag On You Constantly

Every group of friends, or “Entourage,” if you will, has its own unique dynamic. However, in a broader sense, there are usually a few similar archetypes that can be found within each group. You know, there's always at least one person who acts as the “face” of the group — the Vinny Chase. There are groups of friends that […]

Why The Super Bowl Is A Massive Night For Criminal Activity In America

For many, Lady Gaga's rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was a sight — err, sound? — to behold. It was a beautiful performance, really. Decked out in a patriotically-colored get-up, Gaga hit every single note with utmost brilliance. But to say every person watching from home or some packed bar took the time to appreciate […]

Elite Tennis Preview: American Teen Tiafoe Looks To Make A Run In Memphis

Well, I wrote last Monday that Estrella-Burgos might’ve been the biggest underdog to ever look to defend a title in Quito — and that’s exactly what he did, today. After dropping the first set 4-6, Estrella-Burgos battled back in the second set tiebreak and ended up winning the match 4-6, 7-6, 6-2. Congrats to him. […]

The Mystery Of Perfect Pitch And How To Know If You Have It

The Mystery Of Perfect Pitch And How To Know If You Have It

When he was younger, my dad was in a rock band. He played guitar — and I'm pretty sure he sang too, although I haven't heard any proof of this yet — so, ever since I was a young kid, we've always had a shared interest in music, specifically, rock and roll. This past summer, […]

The Meanings Behind The 12 Coolest Tattoos In The NBA

I woke up this morning to some upsetting news. As I was perusing through the day's headlines, I noticed that the maker of the NBA 2K series was getting sued for more than a million dollars over the licenses to various tattoos on various NBA superstars' bodies. If you're unfamiliar with the NBA 2K video game […]

Elite Tennis Preview: Value In Frenchman Richard Gasquet At Montpellier

Tuesday sucked. Chung match was on at like 5 am, so I'm not really sure what happened there. But — judging by the scoreline — nothing good, apparently. Still, after seeing Chung go down, surely both of our young, prodigious — decently favored — phenoms wouldn’t lose to mediocre players, at best…right? Wrong. They did. I'm not […]

Why Valentine’s Day Is The Best Day For Single People To Get Laid

It's, what, February second already? So that means people — both guys and gals — nationwide are about to press the panic buttons on their lives and enter the period of self-pity that usually precedes the weeks leading up to Valentine's day, which really doesn’t make any sense to me. Eleven months out of the year, people […]

Congrats to Novak Djokovic, after securing his sixth Aussie Open title early Sunday morning in Melbourne, defeating rival Andy Muray in straight sets. This week, we shift gears — and time zones — and find ourselves with three tournaments to play with in Quito, Sofia, and Montpellier. Quito, now in its second year of existence, […]

There's an old episode of “Seinfeld” that I feel personally connected to. Actually, there are many more than just one — but I feel a very special connection to this one episode in particular. The episode deals with a world class runner — Jean Paul — who was staying with Elaine in NYC, prior to […]

Why Friends Who Quote Movies Together Are Way Tighter

“Ezekial 25:17.” Back in high school, whenever my friend would utter those few words, I'd casually respond with: “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.” And we'd go back and forth, trading memorized sentences, until I'd say “And I […]
