Yoenis Cespedes Has a Decent Arm

The fact that a human being can throw the ball that accurately in the air is unreal. Howie Kendrick must’ve been the most shocked guy in the world when he got tagged out. He tags third base and Cespedes is still running after the ball, then two seconds later a missile comes flying in from the outfield and he’s out. I never thought I’d do this, but I’m giving this throw our Seal of Approval. Well earned.

Justin Bieber Made His Bodyguards Carry Him Up The Great Wall of China

Via Buzzfeed.

 

What an asshole. I mean yeah making other humans carry you up a giant wall is pretty ideal but Ryan Eugene Fogarty does not give Justin Bieber credit for anything. Just like my daddy and his daddy before him. We’re a proud folk, and we hate Justin Bieber. He honestly might be the biggest douchebag in the world. I’ve never had so much hatred for a person I’ve never met before, and I’ve never felt so right for doing it.

Tech Tuesday: Keyboards, Mice, and Speakers. OH MY!

Computers are a beautiful thing, but they are only as good as the tools you use to manipulate and interact with them. Here are my pics for best looking, feeling, and sounding peripherals for your desktop or laptop.

1.) M.O.U.S 9 by Mad Catz – $127.99 (http://goo.gl/s2qkuU)

When you first lay eyes on the MOUS9 by Mad Catz you are likely to think that it is more spaceship than mouse for your computer.  This mouse, and the rest of the gaming mice that Mad Catz have to offer, are the most unique pieces of technology i’ve seen in a long time.  Meant to be fully customizable to fit your palm, these mice are the most comfortable I have ever used.  From weight, to length, and all the additional customizable buttons, this mouse was made to be used for long periods of time with little fatigue. While this mouse is primarily aimed at the gaming community I have found it useful while editing video.

2.) Das Keyboard Professional Model for Mac – $130.00 (http://goo.gl/068Y8V)1024x335_mac4

Next on my list is the Texas based keyboard company, Das Keyboard.  The one word to describe this companies line of keyboards? FEEDBACK. The single most important word when it comes to describing a keyboards feel.  When I first bought my iMac I could not stand the, basically zero, feedback of the Mac keyboards.  It did nothing for me when I wanted to type long scripts and blog posts.  But then came along Das Keyboard.  The keyboards with buttons that practically push you back! The springy feel and loud clicking sounds will surely give your fingers something to be excited about.

PS- Like the feedback but with no loud clicking noises? Das Keyboard makes silent boards as well!

3.) M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Professional Reference Speakers – $79.00 (http://goo.gl/AjPmcs)

I have just recently made the switch from my onboard speakers to these bad boys.  I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner! These are great studio monitors on the cheap.  $80 gets you two great sounding, self powered, speakers that have a built in Auxiliary and headphone plugs right in the front of the left monitor.  They pumped out big sound from a small frame, and look great on any desk.

PS- Bonus pick -Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones – $27.00 (http://goo.gl/OFVrla)

Great sounding headphones with a long cord.  Not noise canceling, but a great pick for under $30.

 

 

 

 

 

Top 10 [Active] Sports Nicknames

Few things give me more of a stiffy than a good nickname.  I’m not just talking about willy-nilly handing out monikers.  The kind i’m talking about are the ones that always stay with you, the ones that have deep meaning and just roll off the tip of your tongue.  So here is my list (in no specific order) of the best nicknames in sports today.  I tried diversifying between sports as best I could or else they all would have been NFL players.

1.) J.J. Swatt
