Vikings: Valhalla Explained - What The Spinoff Title Really Means

The world of Vikings will continue expanding with the sequel series Vikings: Valhalla, but what does the title really mean? Historical drama has become one of the most popular genres on TV, and among the most successful projects in recent years is Vikings, created by Michael Hirst (The Tudors). Although it was originally planned to be a miniseries, the first episodes of Vikings were so well-received by both critics and viewers that it was quickly renewed for a second season, and it lived on for...

Does Your Favorite Football Team Have a Matching Vehicle?

Here in the Motor City, football shares a unique relationship with our most notable export, the automobile.

Viking Ocean Cruises’ Covid-19 Safety Protocols

Viking Ocean Cruises’ Covid-19 Safety Protocols Carol and I just experienced Viking Ocean Cruises’ Covid-19 Health & Safety Protocols. With all of the confusion in the traveling publics’ mind around Covid-19 and the Delta Variant, we thought it necessary to experience an ocean cruise during Covid for ourselves. As busy as we are right now, we thought it wise to stay close to home.  Therefore, we chose Viking’s Bermuda Escape . Bermuda is a short two-hour flight from Boston, and this 8-day crui...

Creed Viking vs Viking Cologne

To me, Creed’s 2021 Viking Cologne bears very little resemblance to the original Viking; so different in tone and colour that they could, and should, be thought of as two independent references. If you didn’t like Viking, don’t discount Viking Cologne on the name alone. If you loved Viking, don’t blind buy the Cologne!  Creed have taken the same approach formulating Viking Cologne as the...

Viking Cruises: Bermuda Escape

? Viking Cruises: Bermuda Escape Viking Cruises’ Bermuda Escape is the perfect 2021 getaway for a close-to-home adventure. When Viking first offered this cruise, I poo-pooed it in my mind as you were required to stay in the Viking bubble on and off of the ship. BUT, that has changed, and guests are now allowed to explore the island on their own freely. AND, as I explored the day-by-day itinerary, I told Carol, “we should go on this cruise.” It’s easy to get to. It’s a stone’s throw away f...

Mostly, I'm sharing it here because "The drum needed a blood sacrifice" is a badass title — for a band, but especially for a piece of journalism. — Read the rest

Flames are the latest NHL team to call for Darryl Sutter’s unique intervention

The Calgary Flames hired Darryl Sutter as their head coach Thursday night, and on Friday a talk-show host congratulated him. “Thanks, John,” Sutter said. “Now I won’t be able to listen to you on the tractor while I’m feeding the cows.” This was reminiscent of Dec. 19, 2011, when the Kings tried to rescue a drowning season and hired Sutter. At the press conference, someone asked Sutter what he was doing when the Kings called. “Well, I wasn’t shoveling (manure), I can tell you that,” Sutter replie...
