“This election should not be about political parties.  Too many Americans are out of work, and our debt is out of control. This election needs to be about those issues.” – Gov. Susana Martinez (R – NM) (more…)

The Slobberknocker Chronicles – Issue #2: Triple H Is A Jerk (Guests: Anthony Sellers & Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti)

tsc-2-cover

The Slobberknocker Chronicles returns for a second installment! Along for the ride with Thomas and I are fellow TricycleOffense.com co-founder Anthony Sellers and The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show’s very own Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti! We spend a good chunk of this episode…trashing Triple H (Asti), trashing Sting’s WWE Hall Of Fame chances (Asti), condemning the WWE for rehashing the old Kane/X-Pac team (Asti), moaning about Sheamus/Del Rio III (me), and laying out the perfect way to set up Lesnar/Undertaker at WrestleMania XXVIX (all me)! We also tossed in some Austin/Punk speculation for good measure. So before Punk/Lawler II takes place, ring that bell and get this episode started!

Trike House Party – Week One: Where Someone Picks Against ‘Bama

isiah-wiley-e1345914387920

Welcome to Trike House Party, the newest feature here at TricycleOffense.com! Every week throughout the college football season, Anthony Sellers (his idea), George “The Howitzer” Gerbo, Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti, and Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley pick the winners of various games. Wins and losses will be accounted for and the man with the best record at season’s end will win the elusive Golden Keg Championship!  With that said, let the games and the commentary begin!

The first thing you notice is that Kelen has Michigan winning over Alabama at Alabama. As the only one brave enough to make this pick this week, he could be ending his Championship run rather early.

Asti plays it safe by picking all favorites. A heel move that could pay off but maybe a few first week upsets could make his claiming of the title less prophetic?

George and Anthony both have Boston College beating The U. This may be a little bit of old school Big East bias but could they be onto something?

Kelen and Anthony both picked against Clemson. Despite their #14 ranking, playing at Auburn for your first game of the season is a little tough for anyone. And you always have to beware of the dreaded SEC favoritism (it exists!). Or maybe they think there be remnants of the 2012 Orange Bowl Clemson on the field?

The Buzz-Saw is the only person to pick Michigan State at home. Has the Broncos success of the past few years went to everyone else’s heads?

Worry game: Marshall at WVU. They all picked WVU. All signs point to WVU continuing their dominance of their in-state rival. But if this is the year that the Thundering Herd quiets down the crowd at Milan Puskar Stadium, WVU’s inaugural Big XII season is off on the wrong foot.

Cake game: Hawaii at USC. The sanctions are over. The Trojans will be making up for lost time.

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: Best of the Worst: Ranking the NFL Teams That Never Won A Super Bowl

0829-Vince-Lombardi-Trophy-2-Primary_20100829233719_660_320

I’ve been lollygagging around trying to come up with some sort of decent article idea to write about. I’ve finally come up with an article (although “decent” can be debated) thanks in part to me going to Sears to get my car inspected (3 months after the inspection went dead I might add. Like I said, I’ve been slacking!). (more…)

Trike Adventures – #01: What Does It Taste Like?

trike-adventures-01-cover

With a little less alcohol, the Trike Adventures rides again with special guest Corey and Rebecca! In this episode, we tried to keep it clean but it was no use. Thomas shares why Gianna Michaels is his favorite, Anthony refuses to put anything on the record, Corey reveals that he’s never received badly, and Rebecca just says she hates receiving period. It was another 30 minute romp before the premiere of Breaking Bad and Political Animals, so press play before next Sunday comes!

Higher Learning 2: Gnarly McFly To The Future

DJ_CoutzVarious_Artists_Higher_Learning_2-front-large

One of the most ambitious projects a DJ can undertake is a fully-collaborative, meticulously produced, and indisputably original album. With that being said, DJ Coutz has networked with the movers and shakers, underground artists, new jacks, and old hats of West Virginia hip-hop to produce his SECOND such project “Higher Learning 2” and it does not disappoint. Looking down through the track list, several artists quickly jump out at me as people I know, respect, and have heard commentary from in the past – usually on message boards. Many more are newer rappers to the scene and artists I’ve not been formally acquainted with from outside the Morgantown/Charleston area. (more…)

Super Mario 64: The Good, The Bad, and The Mods

Today I’d like to talk to you about a special game which will always hold a spot near and dear to my heart: Super Mario 64. My younger 12-year self could barely contain himself as he tore into that crinkly cellophane wrapping, cautiously using his t

humbs to make a hole in the corner of the plastic without tearing the tabs on the box. The sweet smell of instruction manual fragrance filled my nostrils as I jammed the plastic cartridge down into my game console as if it were some type of Indiana Jones Holy Grail.

Slater’s Signature Finisher: The Second City Saint v. The Rattlesnake: Will It Happen At ‘Mania XXIX?

Punk_and_Austin

In the current storyline, WWE Champion CM Punk is angry at the WWE Universe for not showing him the respect he feels he deserves for being the best in the world. In real life, WWE has that respect for him, as it would appear he is tentatively penciled in to face Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at January’s Royal Rumble. Johnson will challenge for the WWE Championship in January in what will be his third match in the last seven years. Punk has been WWE Champion for 10 months and shows no signs of losing the belt anytime soon. (more…)

It Could Happen To You: A Story With A Moral

2836537593_2b91896419_z

I pride myself in being able to wear two different hats at the same time. One side is the somewhat square, accountant/bookkeeper who doubles as a responsible family man. I hold down multiple jobs, I make straight A’s in school, I dress casually, and I’m book-smart. I do taxes.  I take care of my wife and daughter.  The other side which few get to see is the spontaneous, somewhat reckless tattoo addict and hip-hop artist – a street smart kid who enjoys hitting the gym almost as much as he enjoys hitting the range.
