Cubs Are In World Series. Cubs Lose First Game of World Series. Cubs Might Lose World Series. #NoGoatingAllowed

screen-shot-2016-10-26-at-1-21-19-pm

The odds picked the Chicago Cubs to win the world series, some say as far back as in January 2016. Not many picked the Cleveland Indians to whop the Chi-town heroes 6-0 in the first game of the World Series.

Not sure about everyone, but I’m hoping this becomes an epic world series. The windy city could use the excitement, maybe not so much in the Ohio town that recently lifted the NBA banner for the Cavaliers winning the championship last year and bringing the city its first title in too-long to remember (maybe because I wasn’t born yet).

Tonight is Game 2 and I haven’t a clue as to which team will win. I do know that the odds are against the team that doesn’t win the first game of the series. Maybe someone should get the goats ready in Chicago for Game 3 of the series.

Nasty Women Unite Against Donald Trump

mockup-fa02b45f_1024x1024

It shook the world, is one way of putting it. The third and final debate between U.S. presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was vicious. Gloves came off for sure.

Whether there was a clear winner or not, that’s up to you. But, as far as sound bites and prodding of the media pundits for reactions go, there was a clear victor (or loser really depending on how you frame it)… Donald J. Trump provided sound bites like no other. In fact, many political commentators jumped at The Donald’s refusal to commit to an acceptance of the election results. But while that frenzy played out on television and talk radio, in bar rooms across the country many women were slamming The Donald’s use of “nasty woman” comment towards Hillary Clinton.

So much unity from the female population that many vendors have risen to fill the new void of self expression when it comes to political alliance. You can find merchandise (via Dillary Clump and awkbomb.com)using The Donald’s “nasty woman” comment for fans and followers of Hillary Clinton. To the extent that the Hillary Clinton supporters are championing around the phrase and using it to empower their causes and candidate.

DONUT Trust The Candidates: An OPT OUT checkbox for Election Media

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-3-46-41-pm

With election day just a few weeks away, every American is getting an earful about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (ok, mostly Donald). It’s no wonder voter turnout is always low – by the time one;s suppose to vote, the last thing we want to look at is these candidates names. Seriously, after hearing about each candidate for months on talk radio, broadcast and cable television, Twitter and Facebook- we need an election media OPT OUT option.

Imagine how much more peaceful life would have been the past months if every time you got in your car you didn’t have to hear more stupid B.S. about The Donald or Hillary? If ever time you watched you a football game there wasn’t some insane and ridiculous political commercial ruining your mood?

Life would be much sweet if we had an election media OPT OUT. (SHOP THE OPTIONS ABOVE: DILLARY CLUMP)

Politics, Pizza and Beer

Somethings go hand in hand like pizza and beer. Politics and… well, we’re thinking about that one.

Honestly though, with the state of affairs in this country being what they are, shouldn’t more people be throwing and hosting debate keg parties? Not to listen to the squabbling of the candidates, but to be American.

It could be like a toasting of this nation’s greats: beer, arguments for arguments sake, and hanging with buds. (see what I did there?)

Short of there being a million other options of TV to watch or things to do while the debates air on television, I sincerely would love to see someone pop a keg stand every time the moderator says “you have 30 seconds to respond…”

God Bless The U.S.A.

Halloween Yoga for The Ladies

It’s Halloween season and I guess there’s no better time than now to don a pair of pumpkin patterned leggings. What? That’s not the first thought that comes to mind when thinking about Halloween? How else but yoga will one burn off the insane amount of candy one will consume this month?

Ok, we can’t keep a straight face and continue to talk about pumpkin pattern leggings. That said, if you want to add some seasonal and holiday flare to your yoga workouts, definitely try a pair of these yoga pants from awkBOMB!

The American Nightmare: Dillary Clump

It might be too ironic that the elections follow Halloween and yet many voters feel the only candidate options on voting day are more “trick” than “treat”.

The ecommerce website awkBomb sells the Dillary Clump T-Shirt (of which Stetson Ward readers can save 20% by using code: WARDOFF). If going “dill” is a bit too much for you, be sure to peruse awkBomb’s other Halloween themed sweatshirts, t-shirts, and knick knacks.

Whether one is a liberal or a conservative, the upcoming election is of upmost importance for the United States. The world and the country face many difficult challenges and the next president will be tasked with shepherding a country that is greatly divided in a world that is very chaotic and violent.

Could there be any other choice other than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? It is as if reality television has consumed an entire nation of people.

While the most popular alternative was Bernie Sander, he seems to be a distant memory at this point. Maybe somewhere in the mess of it all there is some genetic mix of Clinton and Trump, a Dillary Clump if you will, that can speak for the horrified masses in this country that feel as if the days following Halloween will only be more of a nightmare than a trick or a treat.

Fortunately, before any of us have to get too serious about the election, we get to enjoy Halloween! Trick or treat you Dillary Clump m*ther effers! #FML.

For more festive, tongue in cheek Halloween options –

Sports War: Cheerleaders vs Groupies

Football cheerleaders or baseball groupies - who's sexier?

The NFL Football season is now underway and MLB is headed into playoff season. Sure, there’s a lot of excitement on the fields for teams that are competing or at least have a chance at winning it all. But don’t be mistaken to think that it all ends there. For teams without a chance to even make the playoffs, there’s still plenty to cheer for.

In football, everyone knows there are cheerleaders. Often times these ladies are stunning and beautiful, athletic and can dance sexy in-front of 60,000 people. They are all about energy and are never caught not smiling. They epitomize sexy fun times with a lot of testosterone around.

In baseball, there really aren’t any team cheerleaders. Baseball doesn’t really have the rah-rah-rah attitude or environment that you find at football games. Still, baseball is known for its groupies. Yes, the teams have boat loads of female followers anxiously waiting to bed a star on the rise in the minor leagues. But there are plenty of baseball groupies for the die-hard fans as well. As with all groupies, there has to be something in it for them and in most cases the baseball experience can be pretty lavish with box seats among celebs, VIP treatment with food and beverages, and maybe even on-field visits or locker rooms tours after the games.

So while there’s an age old question as to which sport helps get and entertain the ladies, there’s also the question you have to ask yourself about your preference: Baseball Groupie or Football Cheerleader?

Father’s Day Shopping Guide

Father’s Day is coming up soon, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait until June to start thinking about gifts. This year, ditch the neckties and opt for something a little more fun and exciting instead. Stumped as to what you should buy for that dad, stepdad, or grandfather on your shopping list? Don’t worry, a lot of people are, which is why we have chosen some fun and unique gift ideas to help get you started.

On their web page, The Eight Wonder proclaims that “ultimate comfort and top-shelf, signature fabrics are combined to make The Eighth Wonder a perfect 10.” Whether your dad’s an outdoorsman in need of long johns for staying warm, or the type of guy who prefers lounging around the house in his boxers, you’ll find a style that is just right for him. Your dad may just love his new underwear so much that buying some from The Eighth Wonder becomes your new Father’s Day tradition.

Artstar Abstract Art

Does your dad have a more whimsical, fun-loving nature? Would he like to spruce up his man-cave or office? If so, you’ll find a good number of art pieces available from Artstar that will appeal to his sense of fun and adventure. Perhaps your father is more of a contemporary guy who would enjoy a cityscape scene of New York or Paris. Maybe he’s a wannabe surfer who would prefer something from their beach or “surf’s up” collection. Regardless, you’ll find Artstar’s abstract art visually appealing and awe-inspiring, and may even want to pick up a few pieces for your own collection.

Uncommon Bond Zipper Tees

Every dad love t-shirts, especially if they’re a little out of the ordinary. The zipper tees offered by Uncommon Bond look very much like classic t-shirts, yet contain an unusual twist-zippers down each side. Think how practical these zippers will be when dad needs to cool off when performing yardwork or even playing a few rounds of “shirts and skins” basketball. These t-shirts come in a variety of colors, and are ideal for wearing anywhere, whether at work, running errands, or just hanging out at the park.

Acustom.com Chinos

Your dad has probably worn the same old tired pair of jeans for years. Maybe he doesn’t know how to shop for clothing, or just doesn’t know that chinos from Acustom.com are available in a multitude of colors. Let this be the year that you change his life forever by giving him a pair of chinos that he can then wear golfing, to a job interview, or even while taking your mother for a night out on the town.

This Father’s Day, resign yourself to giving dad a gift that will fundamentally transform his life. Any of the above gifts will do just that, while at the same time being very affordable and practical.
