Baseball used to mean crackerjacks and peanuts. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. As most Americans’ culinary interests have exploded, unless you’re a lover of Taco Bell Doritos Locos tacos (in which case you’re probably dealing with a different type of gastrointestinal explosion), our appetite for a good meal and a great game have [...]
At long last May is finally upon us. For some reason, we celebrate this lovely month by proclaiming it “National Drinking Water Month.” Why we need a reminder to drink a substance which makes up a majority of our bodies is beyond me.
May is not a month for celebrating water. It is a month of [...]

The government has shut down. Crazy us thinking that a legislative body elected to responsibly govern would actually do their jobs. I’m at the point where I officially have more faith in Miley Cyrus keeping her clothes on than I do in my leaders. Surely that qualifies as reason enough for having a drink (or [...]
