Payton Remains in New Orleans – Fans Rejoice

Sean Payton Saints Sign 5 year Extension

The Saints are planning their next  Superbowl appearance having resigned head coach Sean Payton to a 5 year extension. Saints’ owner Tom Benson, said  “He’s always been our head coach,” and that they had already worked it out. This is great news for a team and city that have been plagued by the Bountygate scandal, especially when the great Goddell has been trying to make an example of this time with less than substantial evident (as we’ve seen in two separate court cases).

The Brooklyn Nets Fire Avery Johnson

Nets Fire Coach Avery Johnson I find it interesting that the under-performing Nets have fire their coach, Avery Johnson, just one month after being named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month. Of course former super PG DeRon Williams said he had nothing to do with the departure, but this is the same guy that voice his displeasure with Avery’s offense and somehow made the great Jerry Sloan retire from the Utah Jazz.

I think Avery Johnson (fellow New Orleanian and fellow St. Augustine Purple Knight) is a great coach and has been disrespected in the NBA, in Dallas he was named Coach of the Year and then the next year after a disappointing lost in the championship fire. See the comparisons with his departure in Brooklyn (coach of the month, then fired).

Sad enough, the Nets fans are ecstatic that Phil Jackson is in the mix as a possible candidate. Do you think the great Zen-master can come back to his beloved New York (sad that its not the Knicks) and lead them to the promised land as he did in Chicago and LA? Let me know what you think?

Poked? Facebooks New Poke App

Facebook’s infamous “poke” is trying to become relevant again. This time, instead of poking with your finger you can poke with a message, a photo, or a video? I guess. I wonder what clever picture guys are going to poke their friends with? Cool thing about it is that the pokes will expire 1-10 seconds later. Is it me or did I use an unusual amount of question marks in today’s blog?? What do you think and will you “poke” somebody with the new Poke App?

Ugly Christmas Ties

Tis the season for giving…And what’s the best way to show that guy in your life how you feel about him this year? A Christmas tie!??! Hopefully not, unless you are like my wife and just have impeccable taste. Most people end up getting their dads, brothers/brother-in-laws/husbands really, REALLY ugly ties. I myself have been given an ugly tie or two (luckily not by my wife, she reads this blog) and have sat in my closet in the land of forgotten ugly shit, never to see the light of day. Give the guy you care about most, something practical and worthwhile. If you really want to go the route of neckware, check out any of our previous post or even sites like http://www.thelifetieproject.com, http://www.thetiebar.com, etc. Or you could give them the gift that keeps on giving a high quality app that organizes and picks out their tie for them (wink, wink). Where would you find such an app??? (Hint: The Man’s Closet Ultimate Shirt and Tie App below…Again selfless plug)

Google Maps is Back on iOS again…

Normally we bring mainly men’s fashion related post but today is a random tech nugget which we occasionally do from time to time… Good news for the iPhone 5 crowd, the Great google maps is back

Google has released its long-awaited map app for the iPhone. And it delivers all the expected features: voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation, traffic, public transit, Street View and so on.

For the few folks that actually use Siri on the regular, she is not integrated with the app so sorry.
