We had the chance to wear and review a Black Zip Up from Sportiqe Apparel Company and it’s everything they said it was. The product I tested is a black zip up with the emblem of hot band O.A.R on the front and O.A.R. spelled out on the back. The material is high quality and the fit is right on for those who are in decent shape to top shape. I say that as the zip up is form fitting and can compliment those who have a good physique (It will fit tight if you’re sporting a beer gut!).
With branded t-shirts and zip ups featuring food, spirits and all kinds of sporting teams, Sportiqe Apparel starts at $29.99 and is available at Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, Urban Outfitters and online at www.SportiqeBoutiqe.com.
This past saturday, Las Vegas played host an evening of adventure, debauchery, and swashbuckling as Captain Morgan held his “Welcome to the Captain’s World” party. The purpose behind the bash was to unveil a new ad campaign for the world renowned rum, and to give the Captain a chance to introduce his new First Mate: Marisa Miller.
Set to launch nationwide this week, the campaign chronicles Miller’s new responsibilities as “First Mate,” including what it takes to protect the Captain’s world famous spiced rum – attitude and some serious sword-handling skills. Yeah, we said sword-handling skills. We normally try to avoid knife fights, but if Marisa Miller was bearing down on us with a sword, well, we’d be fools not to sit back and take whatever beating she’s willing to dish out.
As the clock moved past midnight and on to 10/10/10, Marisa Miller debuted her new video, aptly named “Welcome to the Captain’s World.” She and the Captain also announced the formation of the First Mate Fund, a non-profit fund established by the Captain Morgan brand to award grants to several charitable organizations that focus on responsible drinking awareness and education.
Starting this week, you’ll be able to catch the “First Mate” campaign in print and online advertising, billboards and bus wraps as well as in various social responsibility communications and event appearances. Additional information about the First Mate Fund and its beneficiaries will be announced in the coming weeks.
The UK pop charts might be more forgiving than ours when it comes to inane novelty hits (two words: Crazy Frog), but by and large, the Brits have maintained their affection for melody. Most of the plastic American pop stars are eaten alive on their charts – they love American rock bands though, embracing the Pixies well before we did – while the ones who embrace the Beatles’ affinity for songwriting are handsomely rewarded. Who knows, maybe the real reason is more nationalist than this, that the UK population simply likes UK acts, but you have to admit that the Brits have a much greater love affair with pop in the classic sense of the word than we Yanks do, particularly today.
Which is why our video of the day has reached #17 on the UK pop charts, and doesn’t have a prayer of being a hit here. But that doesn’t make it any less awesome.
If you had told us that “The Bike Song,” from UK It Boy producer Mark Ronson, was a long-lost cover from some Nuggets-era band (think “Green Tambourine” by the Lemon Pipers), we would totally have believed you. (It was actually written by a Zuton and two members of the Dap Kings.) The song has an effortless sunniness to it and one of those instantly memorable choruses, marvelously sung by the View’s front man Kyle Falconer. Who are the View, you ask? They’re a Scottish band who were poised to ride the UK wave of the mid-’00s along with Hard Fi, Franz Ferdinand and the Arctic Monkeys, but Falconer was busted for possession, their US tour was canceled, and that was that. If you’re an Anglophile, though, go hunt down their song “Street Lights.” Good tune. Not as good as this one, but good just the same.
The video for this is a throwback, consisting mostly of Falconer and Ronson (that is Ronson with the blonde hair, right?), you guessed it, riding their bicycles. Spank Rock, who looks a bit like Mos Def’s geeky little brother, joins the fun, and then boom, three gorgeous girls on bicycles. That whole ’60s look…it makes us tingly. Have Friday, everyone. Good luck getting this one out of your head.
Are you a fan of Tim McGraw? (How about the lovely Faith Hill??) Well, Regardless of whether you like McGraw’s music or his cowboy hat, his new cologne by Coty is a great cologne. I have been wearing and testing the new fragrance – McGraw Silver – that includes an exclusive accord named “Captivate” which is comprised of unique ingredients. In McGraw Silver, I felt like I wasn’t wearing just another new cologne but something distinctive. It’s a fragrance that was noticed by others in a very positive manner.
The packaging caught my eye with a bold rectangular bottle that signifies Tim McGraw’s country style in an urban setting. McGraw Silver has the right balance to be your everyday cologne at the right price and for all of us Tim McGraw music fans remember, “I may be a real bad boy, but baby I’m a smell good man.”
The Eleventh Viper Owner Invitational (VOI) was held in Salt Lake City, Utah from September 30th to October 3rd, 2010. If you love Vipers this is as close to heaven as you'll get! Our friends were kind enough to let us take a look at the weekend events and many of the out of this world Dodge Vipers. The main theme behind this Utah gathering is to celebrate the passion and unbridled enthusiasm of Viper Nation and it's hosted by Viper Club of America. The turnout was strong with more than 350 Vipers, 750 guests, and a special SRT performance driving experience with the Challenger SRT8 and Charger SRT8 on an autocross course.
Word out here is that the Dodge Viper brand will live on after a short hiatus. Loyalists and competitors worldwide anticipate a resurgence shortly after, bringing the raw power and sleek design of the Viper's namesake back into spotlight! Enjoy the photos!
We were able to get a sneak peek at the trailer for Victoria’s Secret supermodel Marisa Miller’s newest commercial for Captain Morgan where she gets to play the role of a sexy pirate. The sexy spot will premiere next week and it chronicles Marisa’s newest job as Captain Morgan’s First Mate – where her duties include protecting the Captain’s legendary spiced rum and kicking a little ass along the way. It’s a fun video, and anything involving Marisa Miller is worth a look!
If you’re looking for a step up in the cologne department you should consider Pure Nautica. We found the scent to be a worthy choice while reviewing the new fragrance from Nautica. Pure Nautica is a clean and sophisticated scent for the confident man and perfect for everyday use. Even during a long and active day and well into the evening, Pure Nautica keeps you on top of your game with a lasting and meaningful scent.
The Pure Nautica bottle represents the fragrance with a clean look and five horizontal lines representing the world’s five oceans. Bullz-Eye feels Pure Nautica “hits the mark” for guys who trust the Nautica brand and the men who want to take that extra step to keep the woman in their life even closer!
If you haven’t been to find the perfect scent for you, give Pure Nautica a shot.

Nothing beats a good old fashioned college football rivalry, and few top Oklahoma vs. Texas. As one of the game's oldest grudge matches, the Red River Rivalry is steeped in history and bad blood. Every fall, downtown Dallas is overrun with maroon and burnt orange as fans from Norman and Austin descend upon the Cotton Bowl to renew acquaintances in the midst of the annual State Fair of Texas.
This year marked the 105th meeting between the two teams, and Bullz-Eye was fortunate enough to attend the latest edition of the Red River Rivalry, courtesy of the good people from Ram trucks. If you've never experienced a true college football rivalry in person, this one should land near the top of your to-do list. The game has taken place at the Cotton Bowl every year since 1932, which would seem to swing home field advantage to the Longhorns when, in fact, Dallas actually serves as middle ground between the two campuses. Sooner fans were just as prevalent on the fairgrounds throughout the weekend as Longhorn fans were, with shouts of "Boomer...SOONERS!" ringing out amidst thousands of "hook 'em horns" gestures in the hours leading up to game time. Each school's band treated fans to several performances just prior to kickoff, which got everyone worked into a proper pregame lather before we headed for the gate to find our seats.
As always, allegiances were very clearly split at the 50-yard line inside the Cotton Bowl, with a sea of orange dominating one half of the stadium and Sooner red overtaking the other. Oklahoma controlled the game early while holding a 21-7 lead at halftime, and though an otherwise flat Texas team managed to tighten things up late in the fourth quarter, it wasn't enough to overcome the eighth-ranked Sooners, who rolled to a 28-20 win but still trail UT in the all-time series, 41-59 with five ties. Check out a collection of photos from the pregame festivities below, and come back later this week to read our recap from the entire weekend, including a rundown of all the fair had to offer and a closer look at the latest addition to the Ram family, the impressive Laramie Longhorn.
We recently traveled to Romania with Player XT as part of the search for the Sexiest Vampirenes in the World, and it turned into one of our best World Tour trips yet! We partied in Bucharest and then traveled to Transylvania where we photographed the 13 finalists in Bran Castle. We’ll be posting photos from our trip all through October and early November, and the 13 finalists will be in Las Vegas over Halloween weekend.
The Vampirene search was conducted by Steaua Rangers EG and culminated with a party and runway show at Le Gaga, one of the amazing clubs in Bucharest owned by the Bamboo Group. Over 2,000 were at the club for the finals, and the party lasted all night. We’ve been to nightclubs all over the world and the clubs operated by The Bamboo Group in Romania rival anything we’ve experienced.
We’ve put together a slideshow of some of the Vampirene contestants as they geared up backstage for the contest and the runway show, as they played up for photographer Paul Miller with some simulated biting poses. The models are decked out in original designs and makeup created by fashion designer Catalin Botezatu. If you’re into sexy vampire babes, you have to check this one out!
Check back as we post photos from the runway show and the club, along with galleries of the 13 finalists who were photographed in Bran Castle!
