Patriots vs Rams Old Head Style

When you haven’t watched a full NFL season in like two years, you start to lose that energy. In this case, I get a little nostalgic. The Patriots and Rams meet in the Super Bowl tonight and what better way to take of advantage of all the attention then to dig up an epic battle from the past. It’s ESPN NFL 2k5 versus Madden NFL 2005 all over again.

Here’s the short story…this was the last time that Madden had any real competition in the consumer market. After this year, EA secured the exclusive license to make NFL football video games. This was also the year when 2K Sports aggressively priced their game at 19.99 retail. This move then forced Madden to drop the price of Madden 05 to 29.99 retail. The pettiness was epic for video game sports fans, but it all came to an abrupt end.

In 2019, Madden is still the only choice if you want to play a new NFL game. So let’s go back in time and enjoy old school teams and gameplay.  Both games are being played on a PS2 emulator for PC. Both games are running at 60fps but Madden has glitches with its stadium. Nevertheless, the gameplay is there. Both games play out, and end dramatically different.

Enjoy!

[New Music] Jus Derrick- I Jus Rap

Blessings! The social media gurus have smiled upon us and lead us victoriously to some solid hip hop. 

I know I’ve been out of the Hip Hop loop for quite a while, but I saw a clip of this video and had to share. Jus Derrick is an up and coming emcee, who currently has a project available on streaming platforms titled The New 90s, Vol 1. I gave it a brief listen myself, and so far so good. Check it out and let me know your thoughts! #DoItNow #letsgo

[Article] Cardio and Fat Loss

Every January, gyms all across North America are packed with people declaring to “get in shape” as a New Year’s resolution. Only God knows if we will take better physical care of our bodies in 2019. One thing we DO know for sure is that adding gym time to an already hectic work week doesn’t sound ideal. Hell, there are so many fad diets and online personal trainers available that it seems confusing to even know where to start. Cardio or weight training? Keto or Paleo? I came across a Pop Sugar article by Tamara Pridgett that talks about the role of cardio in fitness and sensible weight loss. Follow her Twitter @TamaraPridgett and stay fit.

50th Anniversary Woodstock Festival

No way.

Woodstock was that iconic rock festival that music junkies of my age bracket would only dream of attending. And it’s back, again. Spin magazine is reporting that one of the co founders of the festival is bringing a three day Anniversary concert to New York this summer.

I vaguely remember it making an appearance some years ago…something about setting port a potties on fire and mob rioting. Let’s hope for a smooth ride this year. Lord willing, I’ll be there. May the spirit of the late great Jimi Hendrix light the way.
