Each year, we get treated to tons of new music. And yet, each year, there are some songs that just won’t leave us alone. It’s not that these songs are bad; we just heard them — a lot. Presented without comment, for your listening pleasure.
Here is what I know about the college bowls: they are happening. They are important to some people. They involve a sport (I am guessing football, but I cannot be certain). And something exciting (?) or, at the very least, noteworthy is happening with them (?) or maybe the schedule (?) or something, which is making people talk about/care about/discuss college bowls.
As you can see, I know next to nothing about these alleged “college bowls” (Note to self: Is there even an “s” on the end of that?). So here are 10 other bowls that are great, and have literally nothing to do with whatever is going on in sports right now.
#1 – Cereal Bowls
Cereal is delicious, and therefore a cereal bowl is what kicks off our list of the best bowls. Plus, today it was announced that French Toast Crunch, a cereal loved by ’90s kids everywhere, is coming back!
So we’ve been posing about Taylor Swift. Like, a lot. And you’ve probably been hearing her song “Shake It Off” and all of its parodies, plus her new video was released yesterday, and her tickets go on sale on Friday, and, and, and… basically, if you’re not a T-Swift fan, it could be a bit much. Especially when you realize that oh my god, you kind of like “Shake It Off.” Or the “Blank Space” video isn’t quite so bad.
Thankfully, there’s (kind of) a cure for that…
The Harlem Globetrotters, who have been around for nearly 9 decades, are loved by young and old alike. Part-sports, part-theater performance, part-comedy, each Harlem Globetrotters game is a perfect family affair. So here are a few things you may not know about the beloved basketball team.
- The Harlem Globetrotters didn’t actually form in Harlem; the team came together in Chicago, IL, in the 1920s, known then only as the “Globe Trotters”. They were called the “New York Globe Trotters” by 1929, and given the hometown of Harlem. Yet…
There are fans — the kinds of people who have positive feelings toward something. And then there are fanatics — the kinds of people who dedicate themselves to That Thing They Love. Abe Calimag falls into the latter category; as a very passionate, very devoted fan of the Broadway show Rock of Ages, Calimag has spent an estimated $25,000 to experience it again and again.
With that $25,000, Calimag has seen Rock of Ages (in all its forms, on Broadway, on film, and in other live renditions) more than 500 times. He’s seen the show across state lines, on the Great White Way, in six different countries, and on multiple cruise ships. Because he can.
People hear a number and think, ‘You’re nuts! You can buy a car for that!’ People have seen Bon Jovi concerts a hundred times — it’s what they enjoy. This is what I enjoy.
So… if you had $25,000, which show/band/artist/sporting event would you revisit again and again?
