TSB Logo Small
Last night we were lucky enough to be joined by Jake and Jordan of Cespedesfamilybarbecue.com (@CespedesBBQ), to talk about everything baseball related.  We covered everything from how the BBQ got started, to best/worst minor league stadiums they have been to, favorite random players, “rig”, the Seattle Mariners, New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles, and what Bartolo Colon’s belly feels like.

In the 113th minute of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, Germany’s Mario Gotze scored the game winning goal.  The 22 year old striker is evidently doing quite well off the pitch, too.  Check out some photos of this week’s WAG, Ann Kathrin Brommel:  Read the rest of this entry »

dempseysounders

 

Clint Dempsey has scored a goal on the day of the World Cup Final.  Although it was for the Seattle Sounders in their game vs the Portland Timbers, and not the World Cup, it was still nice to see Deuce find the back of the net.  The ball pinballed around on a set-piece before Dempsey was able to get a foot on it and send it into the roof of the net.  Check out the video after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »

GilletteHomeRunDerby

Gillette announced that the participants of the 2014 Gillette Home Run Derby will have an added incentive to aim for: achieving maximum contact by hitting one of two LED #FlexBall razor targets out in left-center and right-center field.  If hit, it triggers an additional $300,000 donation and could push the final charitable donation of the event to be the highest ever donation in the event’s history.

If you’re like most people, you probably have an iPod or iPhone with which you listen to music, watch movies, and/or play games.  While the Apple earpods offer decent sound quality, there is definitely room for improvement.  Enter Acoustibuds EPB (stands for ‘Ear Pod Bud’) Earphone Flexible Tips.  They’re designed to make your existing earphones stay in better, sound better, and feel better without spending a fortune.  I had a chance to try out the Acoustibuds EPB, and here’s what I have to say about them:

QUICK REVIEW:

Comfort: C

Fit: B

Sound Quality: A

Price/Value: B+

Overall: B-

I’ll start off with a disclaimer: I have pretty small ears.  The Apple earpods themselves are almost too big for my ears, and I’ve never have an issue with them falling out on their own.  When you add a silicone cover to them, we’re talking about a tight squeeze.  If you feel like Apple earpods are constantly falling out of your ears, you’ll love Acoustibuds and have a much more favorable opinion than myself.

I was skeptical at first, but I must admit the Acoustibuds drastically improve the sound quality of Apple earpods.  The music was clear, crisp, and was undeniably a better listening experience than Apple earpods sans Acoustibuds.  If you think your listening experience can be enhanced by this product, feel free to pick them up on Amazon for an affordable $9.99.  They come in both black and crystal (clear).

With about 7 minutes left in the second half of extra time in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, Germany’s Mario Gotze trapped a ball on his chest and one-timed it into the side netting to lift his squad to a 1-0 victory over Argentina.  Check out the wonder-goal after the jump:

At the stroke of midnight on July 1st, the window to negotiate with free agents in the NBA opened.   This year is the biggest period of free agency since the summer of 2010, when top stars, such as Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Joe Johnson, and Carlos Boozer all had the liberty to decide the next step in their career.
