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 …

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.

Of course, this is all based on the extremely popular movie The Bucket List (starring two of my all time favorite manly men, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.)
This is a great idea. Trent over at The Simple Dollar (another great site) helps with some really simple how-to’s. It’s a good read. He …
