The Horrors of Traveling

At the time of this post going up, I am either preparing to, or I already have left for vacation. My journey is taking me to the mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Along with Myrtle Beach, I think Gatlinburg is the go-to travel destination for most Mid-Western families, particularly those from the Ohio-West Virginia-Kentucky tristate area. I, for one, absolutely love Tennessee. The landscape is stunning, the touristy spots are always a good time, the vast majority of the people are very pleasant, and there’s a ton of great shopping and eating destinations (shopping and eating are two of my favorite recreational activities).

However, traveling certainly has its drawbacks. People like myself, being the excessive procrastinator that I am, tend to put off packing until the day they leave for their trip. I absolutely waited until the day I leave to start. Those sharing my traits often tend to not realize they need to go to the store to get some essentials (or in my case, hair spray, pomade, and extra crispy cheez-its) until the very last minute. I have made one trip already and might have to make another one before I leave. Me and my fellow procrastinators also have a tendency to end up forgetting something of great importance when throwing together their luggage, which I almost certainly will. Perhaps worst of all, traveling paired with immense procrastination has prevented me from writing a quality, meaningful post for Mid-American Culture this week. With that being said, once I get back, I hope to detail the highs and lows of my trip in a relatively lengthy piece. Hopefully that makes up for the sub-par piece about all of the problems I have caused myself that you are reading right now. In the meantime, be sure to check out some of the other articles on the page from our awesome writers! See you guys next week. Thanks for reading!

It’s Time For The Reds To Ditch Billy Hamilton

Billy Hamilton has long been shoved down Reds’ fans throats as the next big thing for the franchise. His ability to blaze the basepaths and showcase his stellar glove in center field have occasionally dazzled fans, but, as any frequent Reds-watcher can tell you, his inabilities to get on base and do anything of offensive merit are much more infuriating than his big plays are exciting.

The Strangest WWE Game Ever

Notice in the title that I said “The Strangest WWE Game Ever” and not “The Strangest Wrestling Game Ever.” That’s because WWE Crush Hour is not a wrestling game. It’s a Twisted Metal rip-off. How are they connected? I’ll let the game’s intro tell you.

Is Homer Bailey’s Contract the Worst in MLB History?

Ever since the Reds decided to resign Homer Bailey in 2014, he has been nothing short of disappointing. Add this to the fact that he is currently in the middle of a six year, $105 million contract, and it should become very apparent that the Reds made a huge mistake. But, is Homer’s contract the worst in the history of the MLB?

Top 5 Taco Bell Menu Items

Taco Bell is a great fast food restaurant, and I often find myself getting different menu items there. I know that it’s a joke that some of their menu items are different shapes but are composed of essentially the same ingredients, but there are actually a few differences in every product. So much so, that I decided to count down my five favorites today. I’m not counting Baja Blast or their freezes; I’m counting down food items. Let’s begin. Continue reading “Top 5 Taco Bell Menu Items”
