The good people at Dorco reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try their razor, the Pace 7, and their new Dorco Creme Shaving Cream.  They also hooked the TSB readers up with a 20% off coupon code (you’ll have to read this article to the end for the code).

If you can get over the brand name (sounds like dork-o when you say it out loud), the Pace 7 is a decent razor.  One of my biggest pet-peeves with men’s grooming products is that the majority of them lack sophistication and look like toys rather than something an adult could proudly display on their bathroom sink.  The Pace 7 falls somewhere in-between, as I’m happy that it doesn’t have fluorescent colors (although Dorco does have some razors that do) but still reminds me of a razor you’d see hanging out of the shower caddy of a Sophomore in a college dorm.  It provides a decent shave, though, and if you’re looking to save some coin, Dorco’s products are significantly cheaper than most competitors.

The real star of this review was the Dorco Creme Shaving Cream.  That stuff is the bomb diggity (do people still say bomb diggity? off the chain? I’m losing touch man I don’t know how to describe cool shit anymore).  I made the mistake of shaving without it the first time, using some other shave gel, and my experience was rough.  The second and third time around using the Pace 7 with the Dorco Creme I was in heaven.  My skin felt great and the shave was excellent.  This magical serum is a bargain at $6 for 3.38oz (I’d easily pay $10 for it).  I just wish it was 3oz so I could bring it with me on flights when I go on short trips.  My only gripe with it is that they call it “D Creme” on their website.  C’mon, guys.  I don’t care how good the product is, no man wants to rub “D Creme” all over their face.  Call it Creme D.  There.  Problem solved.

Again, make sure you read the rest of this review for the 20% off promo code at the end.  Check out their products here at www.DorcoUSA.com.

beer

Even though the sale of alcohol at college football games sounds like a very bad idea, it is obvious that college students are already too intoxicated. Consuming too much alcohol can result in shootings, stabbings, fights, drunk driving, altercations, injuries, and arrests for public intoxication. Statistically,College Football Lines indicate that such instances rarely happen during game days because of the heavy presence of police officers who sometimes ignore minor infractions, for example, public intoxication.

The Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Settlement yielded free general admission ticket vouchers, $2.25 Ticketmaster coupons (seriously, that’s the amount off with each redemption code), and $5 UPS vouchers to millions of Ticketmaster customers who were victims of Ticketmaster’s bullshit fees from 2009-2013.  The class action lawsuit was filed alleging that Ticketmaster failed to fully disclose to consumers all aspects of its UPS and Order Processing Fees.  The ticket vouchers can only be used for select concerts on the Live Nation website, and the list is one hot, steaming, stinky pile of bullshit.

John Burt, a freshman wide receiver at the University of Texas doesn’t know why five current or former FBS receivers or defensive backs decided to run the 110-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division I men’s track and field championships this week. While their decision to participate in the event won’t have an effect on college football betting lines, an injury could ruin their seasons.

According to Burt, most college receivers and defensive backs that decide to participate in track and field usually run the 100m dash, so he is surprised they have started running the 110m hurdle, especially since they don’t do a lot of hurdling in football. Read the rest of this entry »

Tying a tie, throwing a football, and mastering the morning shave are just a few of the classic moments typically shared between fathers and sons. However, in a world where screen-time tends to outweigh actual face time, the internet often replaces dad as the go-to resource for “how to” information. And while the internet may “know all,” it’s dad who often knows best for his own son.  After the jump, check out Gillette Shave Club’s Video explaining why you should #GoAskDad instead, and keep reading to find out how to win a FREE Gillette Shave Club Kit: Read the rest of this entry »

The good people at Legion reached out to me and asked me to give their pre-workout supplement, Pulse, a try.  While I work out regularly, I generally don’t use supplements of any kind.  I tried protein powder in college and I felt like it was just making me heavy, and I’ve used deer antler velvet before for the hell of it, but that’s really it.

QUICK REVIEW

Effectiveness: A

Taste: C-

Side Effects: B

Price: B

Overall: B

I generally don’t use supplements, pre-workout or post workout, but I’m always willing to try something new for the good of our readers.  At $39.95 a tub, Legion Pulse is a little pricey, but if you use half the recommended dosage (which is really all you need), it’ll last twice as long as other pre-workout supplements of similar price and design.  I liked the pick-me up it gave me before and during my workout.  If you’re interested, you can buy it here: https://legionathletics.com/products/supplements/pulse/

The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a convincing 4-0 series clean sweep against the Detroit Pistons in the opening round of this year’s NBA playoffs but can LeBron James and co. go on to win the title? Well, they’re certainly hitting form at the right moment and the Cavaliers definitely have enough star quality to challenge the likes of Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs for the crown. If nothing else, Cleveland have difference-makers on both sides of the ball and their top talents can more or less win matches by themselves when they are at their very best.

With the Golden State Warriors on the cusp of securing their place in the next round of the playoffs, Cleveland will have it all to do if they are to emerge victorious at the end of what could be a gruelling postseason. The Cavaliers have a much easier route to the NBA Finals than the defending champions, especially as Golden State – who may be without Stephen Curry for the next few weeks – could face the San Antonio Spurs in the not-so-distant future. If nothing else, Cleveland could take advantage of the less testing schedule and the Cavs may be fresher for the seven-match series for the title. Read the rest of this entry »

Conor-McGregor

Coming off a loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, the 19-3 Conor McGregor was set to headline UFC 200 with a rematch.  Earlier today, the unthinkable happened as McGregor tweeted his retirement:

Just about everyone thought Conor had been hacked, or that this was some sort of joke, but Dana White announced that he’s been officially pulled from UFC 200.  Here’s why: Read the rest of this entry »
