My Five Favorite Saints Games Under Sean Payton & Drew Brees

My Five Favorite Saints Games Under Sean Payton & Drew Brees

I have been enjoying the hell out of this New Orleans Saints season. How could I not? After losing the first two games to the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots, the Saints have gone on an 8-game winning streak! From starting the season thinking that another mediocre time was about to start to seeing […]

RIP Malcolm Young

RIP Malcolm Young

This one hurts. So as I was driving from Finn McCool’s back home, I saw an Instagram post from a friend in which he was wishing Rest in Peace to Malcolm Young. The sad fact is that this was news long a-coming. The former rhythm guitarist of Australian rock gods AC/DC had been diagnosed about […]

“Thor: Ragnarok” Review: “Great Odin’s Raven!”

“Thor: Ragnarok” Review: “Great Odin’s Raven!”

Looking at it from the outside, none of this should work. The Thor series, while financially successful, has often been derided amongst fans and critics as the weakest part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Its two previous entries — Thor and Thor: The Dark World — often bring up the rear in discussions of MCU […]

“It” Review: “And We’ll All Float On”

I do not think it was possible to be a child of the 70s or 80s and make it to adulthood without experiencing, at one point or another, a Stephen King work. Whether on the printed page, the TV screen or the movie theater, the creations of the “Master of Horror” were almost a rite […]

Game of Thrones: The Monster at the End & “The Dragon & The Wolf”

Sorry for the delay, but I wanted to let this last episode before 2019 marinate in the head. In any case, here we go: Ever since the first moments in Game of Thrones, we have known who the greatest threat to the Seven Kingdoms were. Three brothers of the Night’s Watch came upon them, killed […]

Game of Thrones: Band of Brothers & “Beyond The Wall”

Game of Thrones: Band of Brothers & “Beyond The Wall”

It has been a strange and sometimes difficult journey for the various characters in our story. That’s a bit of a cliché but it’s not untrue at this point. For anyone who has survived it to this point, that has happened either one of two ways: thanks to their wits or thanks to their friends. […]

Game of Thrones: The Illusion of Choice & “Eastwatch”

Game of Thrones: The Illusion of Choice & “Eastwatch”

This season, we have seen more callbacks and shouts than ever before. That’s not surprising given that it’s time the pieces were put together. But of all the past pieces coming back, the one most interesting to me was the call to Tywin Lannister’s old statement to his children. “The lion doesn’t concern himself with […]
