katin for club monaco

579252_10151484782919542_168889962_n

i’m kicking myself.  i hate being late to the party.  i’ve been off my blog game for the last two months.  too much damn travel.  if i had been paying attention, then i would have seen this collaboration between club monaco and surfwear brand katin much much sooner, and i would have purchased a pair of the paradise trunks you see above.  stupid me.  instead, i’m left wondering if i’ll find a pair of trunks for the summer that i like half as much as these.  they do have a red and navy available in my size.  that’s a win, right?  you can check out the full collection here, but before you do watch this video for a primer on the collaboration:

jackie robinson off the field

april 15th is one of my favorite days in all of sports.  it’s jackie robinson day.  on april 15th, 1947 jackie robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball by becoming the first african american to play in the major leagues since it was segregated in 1889.  his efforts and determination both on and off the field were seen as one of the major steps in the civil rights revolution.  every year on this day, major league ballplayers wear #42 to honor jackie.  we’ve all seen pictures of him wearing his brooklyn dodgers uniform, but i thought it’d be cool to take a look at how he dressed when he wasn’t playing baseball.

congratulations to bubba watson

masters week is my favorite week of the year.  i’m already sad it’s over.  the tournament started on thursday with the promise of being one of the best in recent memory.  the story lines were all there.  tiger has been playing better.  rory was primed to pick up the pieces from last year’s collapse and leave with a win.  luke donald, the number 1 player in the world, was ready to take home his first major, but in the end, bubba watson stole the spotlight and the prized green jacket by defeating louis oosthuizen on the second hole of a sudden death playoff.  it was a great win for bubba and a great week for golf.  now i just need to figure out where i can get one of those awesome ping tour visors (below).

esquire’s best (and worst) dressed at the masters

sorry for the lack of posts this week.  i’ve been out of town.  i got back from vegas late monday night and then went down to augusta for a couple of days on tuesday.  i’ve been recovering ever since.

esquire has posted a list of the best and worst dressed players at the masters.  i was pleased to see that my buddy brandt made the cut.  he signed a deal with peter millar last year to keep him looking fresh on the course.  rumor has it, he wore a pair of pink and white plaid pants today.  it must have helped his game, because he posted a 68.  i’ll post a pic as soon as i can find one.

found one (below).  not quite the rumored pink and plaid i mentioned earlier, but definitely easter appropriate.  good luck tomorrow, sned.

holiday gift idea: warstic bat co. baseball bat

if you have any baseball obsessed individuals on your christmas list, give them one of these half dipped baseball bats from the warstic bat co.  it’s the perfect amount of swagger for that friendly sandlot game this spring.  they take 5-7 days to ship, so get your order in today if you want it here by next sunday.

cold weather running gear

now that college football is over it’s time to get my ass off the couch and start running again.  running on the treadmill is great, but you can’t beat the great outdoors – even when it’s freezing outside.  here’s what you’ll need to stay warm running this winter:

new balance windblocker jacket: it’s windproof, waterproof, and made with lightning dry fabric that will help wick away the moisture.

under armour cold gear compression shirt: like long underwear but tighter and warmer.

nike wool running hat: you’ll need something to cover your head and ears like this dri-fit wool running hat from nike.

drymax cold weather running socks: drymax are my favorite running socks.  their cold weather socks have a dual layer moisture removal system that instantly moves moisture from the skin.

under armour compression leggings: the best protection for your legs in cold weather.  i’ll usually throw on a pair of shorts over them, so no one has to look at my junk.

nike lightweight running gloves: you can’t forget about your hands when running in cold weather.  plus, ladies don’t like men with chaffed hands.

asics gt-2160 running shoes: my new favorite running shoes.  they’re the perfect mix of stability and comfort.

now all you’ve got to do is find the time to get started.  good luck!

“hunker down, you guys”

it’s been a bittersweet weekend for dawgs fans.  we won the east and are playing in the sec championship game, but we lost a great one.  larry munson, the voice of georgia football, died tonight at 89.  he quit calling games in 2008, but every georgia fan i know listens to his old calls on gameday.  it’s gonna be tough to hunker down without him.  we’ll miss you, larry.
