I never saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac. Any time I ever saw a Grateful Dead on a car, 99.9% of the time it was a Volvo, and 98% of the time the sticker was either the dancing skeletons or the dancing bears. I personally love the bears, but the skeletons were pretty cool, too, I suppose. Especially the skeletons with the top hats that had the roses in them.
We are here at the end of April, looking at the biggest story happening in sports. NBA Playoffs? Nope. Playoff hockey? Not even close. Is it Skip Bayless leaving ESPN? No way. It is the end of April, and we’re talking about football.
While the weather doesn’t always accurately project it, spring is here! That means bonfires, shorts and sandals (more often than not with hoodies), and hitting the gym to get those summer bodies ready!

The news came when I was on the couch, reeling from a sinus headache that had knocked me out of work for the day. My wife was home on her lunch break and she let out a guttural “Noooo!”. The news came out that Prince had died.

Links of the Week: Naked and Afraid, the Golden State Warriors, and What To Do with Cell Phones in a Theater
On Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game of the season, breaking the Chicago Bulls’ 1995-96 season record of 72 wins. That’s insane. About 96% of basketball talk this season has been about the Warriors and whether or not they’d break the record and the entire time I thought, “Nah, not possible. Not goin’ to be able to do it!”
April 7, 2016 was National Beer Day. Honestly, it’s a very historic day for a number of reasons, but you just want me to talk about beer so let’s just talk about beer.
I’m a visual person. I love pictures - the pretty, interesting, unique, edgy, and beautiful pictures that tell a story and make you feel stuff; the type of pictures that make you pause when you spot them.
On Thursday, Valparaiso University named a new basketball coach. On one hand, a small school in the Horizon League changed basketball coaches. On the other hand, the end of an era happened. When I first heard the news, one word came to my mind: “Graduation”.
This Deep Cuts is a little different. There are no “Deep Cuts”.
