Wet the Beak: Nearing the End of the Line.

I can’t believe this is the last weekend of college football. After Saturday it’s just bowl games and the playoff. Still, much Football left to wet the beak on so we should get after it while we can. This week’s picks were pretty hard for me to make, Vegas seems pretty on point with the spreads ...

The #1 Selling Album of All-Time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller Turns 35 Today.

Consider this my “Throwback Thursday” post. It’s Billie Jean’s 35th Birthday. Everyone knows this album. It sold 66 million copies. It’s part of the American cultural ether and has been omnipresent my entire life. I was still pooping in a diaper when this Album came out. When my parents bought our first CD player for ...

Sounds of Silence – You are Vanquished.

Family, I apologize. I missed ya yesterday with those thumps. The Train came in and hit you with some phenomenal tunes as your boy was off the radar. The Prone Bone Malone express has been standing room alone lately, and that coupled with the new business I referenced on the Prone Bone Dome has taken ...

A-Train Listens II – My Music of the Moment.

I have left most of the music coverage to my colleague PBM. He is the hip-hop head of this conglomerate, up-to-date on all the new hot fire. That’s not me. I don’t know new music. My tastes are eclectic and they skew older. (This is not to say PBM doesn’t also know old music, he ...

PBM Pigskin Particulars

Express train to NFL knowledge – all aboard, Rail Riders! Ya boy PBM went 2-2 in his Pick 5 this Thursday / weekend hitting on the Chargers and Cardinals and missing on the Lions and Saints. We’ve got the Texans tonight. Now, if you’re wondering why our boy Jared isn’t the featured image and Alvin ...

Bull-dozed in the Bay.

Where do I even begin with these Chicago Bulls? Last night they got humiliated by the defending champion Golden State Warriors on a level rarely seen in professional sports. Golden State beat the Bulls 143-94. First, let that score sink in. Now consider that the Warriors didn’t even play Kevin Durant or Draymond Green. Instead, ...

Gobble, Gobble Get Down

Stand clear of the closing doors, Rail Riders! It’s Saturday, and ya boy PBM has some thumpers to get you past the Thanksgiving leftovers that are weighing you down. Get the fuck off your feet, throw your hands in the sky, and let the Hip Hop burn some mafuckin’ calories. If ya can’t do that, ...

Holiday Gift Ideas: Ladies Get Your Man a Palad Khik.

Every time the holiday season rolls around the inevitable question is asked by women everywhere: “What do I get the man who has everything?” Good Question. A-Train is here with the answer but first, let me ask you this: “Is your man’s penis protected from evil spirits that would do it malicious harm?” The odds ...

Wet the Beak, Pilgrim: Fannuci Friday.

It’s a great day to wet the beak. Make yourself that nice leftover turkey sandwich, and settle for some college football, it’s rivalry week. I dropped the ball on the Egg Bowl, I loved the Rebels in that game but I forgot it was being played on Thanksgiving and I had all my attention in the ...

Florida vs. Florida State: A Once Marquee Match-Up is an Afterthought in 2017.

When A-Train was just a wee lad he got really into college football. It was the mid-1990’s and the National Championship ran through the state of Florida. The Annual Florida – Florida State Game was a lock to have national championship implications. The question wasn’t “would these teams be ranked?” when they played, but “how ...
