Marshall Ohio Battle for the Bell

The Battle for the Bell dates back to 1905, when the Marshall Thundering Herd and the Ohio Bobcats, located merely 80 or so miles apart, met in Huntington, West Virginia.  Marshall clawed out a 6-5 victory in that meeting.  The Bell was first introduced in 1997 and while Ohio leads the overall series 30-19-6, Marshall has been the dominate team of late, winning the Bell in nine out of eleven games.  A brief hiatus ensued when Marshall left the MAC for Conference USA in 2005, but after an unexpected meeting in the 2009 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the two teams signed a six year contract to bring the game back.  This year’s battle pits a 1-1 Marshall team against a 2-0 Ohio team with votes in the polls and its eyes on an undefeated season.

Lady's Perspective Bow Ties

When choosing a swath of fabric to encircle your neck, there are only so many different style options for you to choose from.  Basically, it comes down to bow ties and your standard neck ties.  Since you may only see a cravat once a year at the pretentious wedding of a second cousin on your mother’s side, we won’t count those.  Once you choose a style, there are many different options including patterns (gingham, paisley, seersucker, stripes, petite animals or icons) and fabrics (cotton, silk, wool).  Personally, this lady loves a bow tie. There is just something undeniably sexy about bow ties.  They remind me of the Old South and classic movies with classic leading men like Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery. (more…)

For a good part of the summer, baseball has the center stage.  No other major sports are taking place for a couple of months and there’s nothing quite like getting out to the diamond to enjoy America’s pastime.  Of course you need to be properly attired for these visits and well nothing about wearing a jersey says properly attired.  Should you find yourself lucky enough to be in a luxury box in most instances you’ll be perfectly fine swapping out the shorts for a pair of pants.  Here’s a rundown for each team located near the shores of the Great Lakes.

How to Dress for the 4th of July Banner

You can go either one of two routes when dressing for the 4th of July.  The first option is in your face American flag tank tops, shorts and whatever else you may find.  The second is much more subtle, and quite frankly, looks quite a bit better. That’s what I’ll focus on today, looks you can get away with any time of the year but ones that are especially pertinent to the 4th of July.  The one key requirement was that every item had to be made in the USA, sadly not a small feat.  It just feels wrong to celebrate the birth of our country in something made in China.

Thank you for all your votes in the first round.  Second round voting will end at 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, March 18.

#1 Kiel James Patrick vs. #9 Blue Claw Co.

Kiel James Patrick had some trouble with feisty Hudson Sutler while Blue Claw Co. pulled out a close one against Starboard Clothing.  Is the claw sharp enough to sever the bracelet and send another #1 seed packing?

#12 Lemon and Line vs. #13 Collared Greens

Collared Greens pulled off the last second upset of Costa Del Mar.  It’s common knowledge one #12 seed always takes down a #5 and Lemon and Line proved that true this year.  Who will prevail?

#3 Smathers and Branson vs. #6 Chicago Belt Co.

It’s all about belts in this match up.  On one side you have needlepoint and the other you have ribbon.  You make the call.

#2 Knot Belt Co. vs. #7 Tucker Blair

It’s another battle of the belts.  Will needlepoint or ribbon be the people’s choice?
