Goalie Announcements (Mar 11)

The last four weeks of the regular season start tonight and the races remain much tighter in the NHL playoff race, than they do in the hockey pool standings, but that doesn't mean I won't try and point out the little races that are going on in there... they're in there somewhere, I swear! The race for top spot isn't much of a race, Stuart has held that spot for the longest time and it doesn't [Author: Clayton Corley]

Two Centuries Of Incorrect Labeling Made Us Think Gilbert Stuart Painted A Portrait Of George Washington’s Enslaved Chef

So the painting isn’t a Stuart, and it’s definitely not a portrait of a chef (and certainly not Hercules), say experts. What the heck? Errors of interpretation. “‘No American cook in the colonies dressed like that,’ said Evans, noting that the now-familiar chef’s toque did not appear until the 1820s. ‘It’s a fantasized image of what people want, because people want to have an image of Hercules. And people see the things they want to see.'” – Philadelphia Inquirer

Goalie Announcements (Feb 20)

Well, this could be the last goalie post until the weekend drops, as I will be on the road for work, so you'll probably be without all of those critical updates for a couple (or a few) days.  I will probably find some time to get the points in, but the blog will suffer. There's a pretty good spread for point totals after a couple nights worth of action in the league, as Stuart continues to [Author: Clayton Corley]

Goalie Announcements (Feb 19)

Well, it's not getting any less disgusting at the top of the standings.  Somehow, Stuart's team found 13 points on Monday night, extending his overall lead to 56 points and he's now trending to a 100-point lead before it's all said and done. There are teams following close to his team through Monday night for the Mover & Shaker, as Brian's team finished with 12 points and Jesse's team is at 10 [Author: Clayton Corley]

Rock Cobbler 6.0

Over a week after the event you have probably seen and read enough Rock Cobbler 6.0 Race Reports to have a good understanding of how it was the mudpocolypse of 2019 and how this year we got to ride through Race Director, Sam Ames, house!

‘Veep’ actor Matt Walsh talks end of HBO series and playing the ‘Beauty’ in a rom-com at a French vineyard

When HBO’s “Veep” went on hiatus, actor Matt Walsh had a chance to swap his role as communications director to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Vice President Selina Meyer to play a rumpled romantic lead in a rom-com filmed in France. So off he went. The seventh and final season of “Veep” arrives this spring, having wrapped up shooting in December just before the film “Under The Eiffel Tower” arrived in theaters and digital services this month. “The ride has been tremendous,” Walsh said of the time he’s sp...

Game of Thrones hedges lose a tree

Fans of the series Game of Thrones will shed a tear today for the loss of one of the trees that form the picturesque Dark Hedges, also known as “the Kingsroad.” The Dark Hedges are a incredible beech tree tunnel on Bregagh Road in Ballymoney, Northern Ireland, that have become popular with tourists since being used as a filming location for Game of Thrones. 60 mph winds felled the tree on Saturday, though several of the other trees had been damaged in previous storms. Originally, the trees w...

Writing & Reading!

So, you may have noticed that the dust was blown away from the blog with a pressure hose. Seven days, seven posts! My goal is to write a post every day.

Review; Silca Borsa Americano Phone Wallet

I picked up a Silca Borsa Americano last Spring in the ever-ongoing quest for looking for the perfect phone wallet. I had been using a Waterfield case for a year or so which was great as it allowed me to also carry a Wahoo Dongle on my phone. When TrainerRoad started allowing outdoor rides to sync without capturing it on the App on my phone I started to look for a smaller option, the Waterfield case was a bit bulky.I was already a fan of Silca products, I picked up their T-Rachet and TI-Torque k...

Strava Festive 500; my experience and thoughts on how to be successful

The Festive 500 is a Strava Challenge put on each year, this year is the eighth time it’s been run. The premise is easy 500km (310 and change in miles) in the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The only caveat is that the rides have to be outside, no trainer, no rollers, just hard, cold tarmac (or gravel or dirt or snow). I’ve seen it come around for the last few years and have accumulated the miles in the normal course of training/riding. Most years I would usually total somew...

For 2018 I stepped back from being an Ambassador and mostly just rode my bike.
