Yup, it could happen. Business owners are fighting back with lawsuits to counter the damage done by poor reviews submitted by customers. Here’s one example where a review of a dog obedience service turned into $65,000 defamation lawsuit. Now I don’t know the truth, and I don’t know where the $65K figure came from, but […]
Shopping for kicks at Ross is definitely a hit-or-miss affair. Most of the time, there’s not anything special. Then there are those days with rare finds…at a discounted cost. Finding the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Legend Blue” at Ross still boggles my mind. Over my visits to various Rosses, I’ve seen all kinds of Nike […]
Did you catch the trailer for the upcoming movie, Unfriended? Here it is. Interesting storyline that takes the power of social media to the extreme to exact revenge. But why am I not surprised this movie is set in Fresno? The oddest things happen in Fresno.
In 2015, while Nike is worn by 75% of the participants, the swoosh doesn’t have a lock on the top five seeded teams. Only starting from the sixth ranked teams is Nike worn by all represented teams (Providence, SMU, Xavier, and Butler). Interestingly enough, Under Armour has efficiently picked its spots. With its five teams, […]
Like 2014, the Big 12 is well represented with seven teams in the 2015 tournament. But this year, the Big Ten tied the 12 with seven teams as well.

Forget pickup of the week, this may very well be the pickup of the year in the young 2015. At a fully restocked Ross, I spied these white kicks on the top shelf with a carolina blue Jumpman logo on the tongue. Grabbing them, I recognized them as Air Jordan 4 but different, more leather, […]
The second House of Hoops comes to Hawaii at the Waikiki Footlocker location. The Ala Moana Footlocker was Hawaii’s first House of Hoops back in 2011. I’m not sure why it took so long to designate this second location. I would have guessed Waikiki would be busy with tourists looking for shoes during their Hawaii […]

This morning featured a major, six-plus car accident on the H1 westbound. Not wanting to be stuck in that snarled traffic, I sheltered at Starbucks in Kaneohe and snacked on a bacon, egg, gouda breakfast sandwich that earned me 3 bonus reward stars. Checking Waze and Twitter for traffic updates, it still didn’t look good, […]
