Return To Manliness Roundup:  Cuban TaeKwonDo Fighter Loses His Mind Edition

As with the weightlifter who nearly yanked his arm off dislocating his elbow from his body, yet another one of my manly sports at the Olympics has gained TONS of attention.  This time not for an incredible roundhouse that leaves one of the fighters wishing they took up swimming instead.
Cuban TaeKwonDo fighter, Angel Matos, lost his mind today after being disqualified at the Olympics for taking too long on an injury timeout. He thought best to attempt to remove the referee’s head with one of his feet.  Interesting footage, don’t …

Return To Manliness Redesign – One Full Week In The Books

Return To Manliness website underwent a complete redesign last weekend.  After careful review and thoughtful consideration (and about 15 yard beers), it was deemed a magazine theme was in store for the new look.
I went with Michael Jubel Hutagalung’s Arthemia theme.  The response has been good all week with emails and comments.  If you are an RSS reader of the blog and have not been to the main site in awhile, come check it out.  I would really like your feedback on the new look.  DON’T hold back!  If you …

5 Manly Lessons From The 2008 USA Basketball “Redeem” Team

The USA Men’s Basketball team, the Redeem Team, has moved into the finals against Spain after slapping around the helpless Argentina team. They get a Spain team that recently went through some of their own controversy brought on by themselves.
Entering these Olympic Games, I had to listen to all kinds of people tell me they were still a bunch of punks that would allow their ego’s to get in the way of the greater good. I started to believe all the useless drivel myself, but quickly got snapped …

Attack Plan: Put The Beatdown On Professional Panhandlers

I have a huge intolerance for panhandlers nowadays. I know it’s not a kind or compassionate position to take, but I can’t take it anymore. They are everywhere in my city, Las Vegas. It’s even worse than my old city, Detroit (believe it, it’s true).
The mayor in Las Vegas, Mayor Oscar Goodman, pushed through an ordinance last year that made it illegal to give money or food to the homeless. Oscar is awesome.

Oscar is famous in Vegas for defending the Mob, as their attorney, during the …

Return To Manliness Roundup:  Earnest Borgnine Edition

A good friend of mine, Dave, sent me a video clip of the legendary actor on a recent morning show.  I love Dave and I love Ernest Borgnine more than ever at this point.  I saw this video was captured over at The Common Man as well.  Great minds think alike.
When reminded of his age, he was asked his secret to life.  Take a listen (only a minute).

I’m reminded of the amazing candidness that happens when you reach a certain age.  It happens at different ages for all of us, …
