Rampage is Stupid, Fun, and I’m glad I saw it in Theaters.

Another Edition of “A-Train Watches.” This time A-Train watches “Rampage” Rampage, just like Kong Skull Island is a movie meant for the big screen. If you wait for it on dvd/streaming you are going to be disappointed. Side Note: Do films even come out on DVD anymore? I honestly can’t remember the last time I ...

My Long Held Belief that Hand Dryers are the Worst Invention Ever, Substanciated by Science.

The Headline Reads: “Hand dryers spray human waste particles all over you, study finds.”  A-Train chimes in: “And it doesn’t even dry your fucking hands!” I have long held the position that the electrical hand dryers in public bathrooms are one of the worst inventions of all time. What makes an invention bad? Doesn’t improve on ...

Johnny Roast Beef: You Come at the Queen, You Best Not Miss.

I was as upset as anyone when Deadspin decided to attack barstool yet again. But I wasn’t surprised. Deadspin makes a living by calling Barstool a misogynistic website for because it caters to a male audience. The only way anyone clicks on a Deadspin article is if it’s bashing barstool, most of those clicks are fans ...

A-Train Makes a Magic Wand.

Saquon Barkley is Having a Decent Combine

The funny thing about these numbers is that they were not at all unexpected. Scouts have been drooling over Barkley for a while now, one calling him a “bigger, faster AP with more elusiveness.” Here he is getting the PSU weight room hyped. As a running back one scout said “he has no weaknesses” If ...

The End of an Era in Chicago: The Bears Cut Mike Glennon. (this has not officially happened yet.)

I’m a little confused right now. When I heard the Bears made cuts to their roster yesterday I just assumed one of those cut was Mike Glennon. Turns out they just cut Quentin Demps and Pernell McPhee. This is annoying because I have already titled my blog post and I don’t want to change it. Hold on ...

Throwback Thursday: Operation Paperclip, or How America Got to The Moon Using Nazi Scientists.

Fun throwback Thursday today, kinda of a did-you-know for all my non-history buffs. ( I imagine that’s most of my readers) I’m talking about Operation Paperclip. The effort by the United States to relocate as many Nazi scientists and their families back to the United States as possible. It turns out we got a lot of guys really ...
