Disclaimer: The good folks at World Wrestling Entertainment graciously hooked me up with tickets to review WWE NXT Live show recently, in St. Catharines, Ontario. Opinions expressed are my own.   “WE. ARE. NXT!”  When Johnny Gargano yelled those words, to conclude a fun night of wrestling matches, the audience burst into cheers, including my kids B and J.

Wassup! By now, you’re probably basking in your Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals afterglow. I hope your shopping was a success! If you’re like me, though, you probably still have some work to do, presents-wise.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Kids!

Note: While I was compensated for this post by Imports Dragon, the opinions expressed are mine, as always. Every year in our household, Santa Claus covers off the main presents, no problem, but he slacks off on the stockings. In fact, typically, he scrambles last minute to fill them, and pretty much just hopes that the kids won’t go ‘WTF’ […]

Review – Etch A Sketch Freestyle And More

I don’t know about you, but with the holiday season now upon us, I’m realizing that I need to step up my toy game. There’s just so many options out there.  Shoot, even some stuff that I used to play with when I was a young boy is still around, but modernized! Take the Etch A Sketch, for example, and […]

(Note:  The city of Lansing, Michigan hooked me up with accommodations and tickets to a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game, in exchange for me writing about my experience in the city.

Pringles And The 50 Foot Long Ketchup Covered Slide

As much as I enjoy hanging out with the family, I do also enjoy occasionally not hanging out with them, too.  |Especially if Pringles ketchup chips randomly happen to be involved. However, with two small kids, a baby, and a pretty hectic  lifestyle, this isn’t easy to do. Which is fine, obviously. No complaints here. It just means that whatever […]

BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One Review

When it comes to the BabyBjörn Carrier One, first impressions are everything, man. For example, I remember the first time that I tried wasabi.  Completely oblivious to what it was, my initial bite was a BIG forkful, which clearly was a BIG mistake. It also somehow ended up in my eye, which was painful as it sounds. I didn’t touch […]
