Top 7 Sports Jerseys

Sports jerseys of your favorite teams naturally become your babies even if those babies are (Seinfeld) "breathtaking." Well it just so happens that 2 of my favs actually DO rock so they made the list.  Hey, it's my list after all.  Even if ya don't like the teams, you can't go wrong with these stylish kits.  Represent!

7.  University of Texas Longhorns - The burnt orange from the lone star state just makes ya wanna order a steak and yell “hook em horns!”

6.  West Coast Eagles - I had to show my once winter home of Australia some love and slap an Aussie rules jersey on the list.  Not only does it have cool colors and a mean looking eagle, but it's sleeveless so you can show off the guns!

5.  University of Oregon Ducks - The old green and gold wasn't doing U of O any favors but say hello to the yellow and graphite!  No more lame ducks with this killer new gear.

4.  Philadelphia Flyers - I own it, I live it.  This is my fav team in any sport so of course it makes the list!  Love orange period and the black logo is a total gem.  Let's go Flyers!!

3.  University of North Carolina Tar Heels -  Nothin says smooth like a shot of Carolina baby blue.  No jersey list is legit without this piece of artwork on it somewhere.  It even makes Duke fans say "I wish."

2.  Boston Red Sox - The beauty is simply in the simplicity.  Yes...another team of mine and the more I look at it the more I like it.  It's old school, refined and wicked smaaht!

1.  Oakland Raiders - Oaktown hit absolute paydirt with this clean and mean classic.  The most intimidating jersey in all of professional sports isn't just football, it's Oak-land Rai-der Football!

Top 7 Las Vegas Hotels

I'm not really a night club guy or a gambler (anymore) and I HATE the smoking indoors.  The appeal of Sin City though is in the food, Cirque shows, people watching and just hangin by the pool.  For one reason or another you'll always be going back so don't botch it by staying at the wrong place.  Here's the list:

7.  Paris - An Eiffel Tower in the middle of the desert, how bout that.  Solid spot.

6.  Caesars Palace - The best of the old school that can still hang with the new.

5.  Venetian/Palazzo - Is at the top on some lists.  If you want it, they've got it.

4.  Mandalay Bay - House of Blues, plenty of cache and perhaps the best pools in town.

3.  The Cosmopolitan - The newest spot on the lot is super stylish and even has rooms with terraces to really enjoy the view of the strip.  Far out.

2.  City Center - With spectacular architecture and elegant artwork, City Center doesn't "feel" like traditional Vegas which is a breath of fresh air...well kinda. 

1.  Bellagio - Pure luxury and still the class of the strip.  The customer service is fantastic and they have the best buffet anywhere!

Top 7 WWF Wrestlers

Let's face it, professional wrestling these days just doesn't have the panache that it did in the 80's.  This list doesn't measure the calibre of wrestling in the ring but rather the level of showmanship and trash talk that paid the most bills.  Here we go...

7.  Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart - The most dangerous beard in the business.

 6.  The Iron Sheik -  Iran clearly #1.

5.  "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff - A pioneer in the world of kissing your own guns.

4.  "Rowdy" Roddy Piper - Insults and slaps O'Plenty

3.  Hulk Hogan - Produced action that hit the ionosphere.

2.  "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair -  See pic...

1.  "Macho Man" Randy Savage - "You know what I like about you Macho Man?  Everything."  Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

Top 7 Worst Infomercials

When it comes to infomercials, there is a very fine line between good and bad, the absurd and the somewhat believable.  This is a monster of a category so I will have to come back with a "best" list at a later date.  Enjoy...

7.  Cami Secret - Tired of plunging neck lines?  Who isn't.

6.  Wearable Towel - Great for getting the paper.

5.  Comfort Wipe - Maintain your dignity.

4.  Aspray - Ideal for passing the wrench.

3.  Kush - Not the most creative solution to this problem.

2.  Potty Putter - A high fiber diet = lower scores. 

1.  Uro Club - On course club inspection made easy.
