March Madness is considered the greatest sporting event of the year by many. The bracket challenges are an event unto themselves. This year, Infiniti is giving basketball enthusiasts the chance to do some good with their brackets. The company has teamed up with NCAA Men’s Basketball to help Coaches vs. Cancer raise as much as $500,000.
To participate, simply fill out a round-by-round bracket at CBSSports.com. For more details about how your correct picks will help a great cause, watch the video above.
It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so hopefully your day will be filled with beer, delicious Irish food and some lovely ladies with beautiful red hair. To get you in the mood, we’ve put together a quick slideshow of Bullz-Eye redheads.
The first photo has our favorite Irish redhead Amanda Neal getting in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. We shot her in 2010 to celebrate the holiday, so check out the gallery and see her all decked out in green. Next we have the stunning Lisa in a tank top, and the beautiful Dasha who we discovered in the Ukraine. She might not be Irish, but she would definitely look great in green.
Next we have Wrenna Monet and then Taylor Byrd who we discovered at the Ultimate Fantasy Sports Weekend last year in Palm Springs. #6 Kasie perfected her red locks at the salon, while #7 Kira shows off her natural red hair in a SoCal shoot. We then round out the set with the beautiful Nichole, who is sporting bright blue instead of the traditional green for the season.
Enjoy the slideshow, and be safe as you celebrate this amazing holiday!
Bullz-Eye is driving and testing a 2011 Harley-Davidson F-150 and we noticed that this truck gets a lot of attention. There is no mistaking the 2011 Harley-Davidson F-150 with the black and orange custom paint job and Harley-Davidson decals visible from just about every angle of this truck. While we're working on the review check out this gallery of the 2011 Harley-Davidson F-150.
Ah, St. Patrick’s Day, where everyone is Irish for a day. March seems to be full of days like that, since Fat Tuesday is the day where everyone is Catholic for a day.
Since we know many of you will be getting a full-fledged drink on this St. Paddy’s Day, especially since it is also the first day of the NCAA tournament, we have provided a small list of songs about drinking, the effects of drinking, and the vow that many of you will make the following morning. Think of it as the bender that you never took; we love booze as much as the next guys, but sometimes those things are better lived vicariously.
“It’s Time to Party,” Andrew W.K.
With a whopping three songs about partying on his debut album, Andrew W.K. will forever remain our master of ceremonies when it comes to partying. Until we saw the grammar-challenged lyric video, though, we didn’t know this song made a reference to a money shot. Yikes.
“Have a Drink on Me,” AC/DC
The night is young. Everyone is flush with cash and feeling generous. Try and remember this moment when 1:30 rolls around and you’re buying Natural Light pounders. For now, though, you’re living on the top shelf.
Our friends at AXE sent us brand new samples of AXE Twist Revitalizing Shower Gel and AXE Snake Peel Shower Scrub. We were more than happy to test our the New Axe products with a new look.
AXE Twist sports a new improved fragrance that starts with with exciting freshness which then lasts to keep you in the game all day and all night. As they say “Use AXE Twist because a good first impression isn’t enough, you need to keep her inrigued”. I found the ultra lather with super fragrances had me feeling clean and refreshed.
AXE Snake Peel Shower Scrub also sports a new look but maintains the Desert Minerals and Cactus Oil that will clean your skin like never before. If you’re feeling more than a little dirty AXE Snake Peel shower scrub with deep cleans and exfoliates to remove dirt and dry skin. I used Snake Peel daily and never felt cleaner and believe me when I tell you that this stuff really works.
Between the new look of AXE shower gels and the reliable feeling of knowing AXE has your back out there these products will help AXE fly off the shelves.
Bullz-Eye is currently driving and reviewing a 2011 Mini Cooper S and we are having a blast! The Mini Cooper is obviously a sporty car but the interior space is also noteworthy. Testing is taking place in snowy Ohio and so far the Mini Cooper is up to the challenge. Look for our upcoming review of this upscale compact on Bullz-Eye.com
When theatergoers leave screenings of “Red Riding Hood” this weekend, a great number of them will be saying, “The best thing about that movie was Gary Oldman.” This isn’t necessarily the greatest compliment that Oldman’s ever been paid – trust us, we’ve seen the movie – but it’s one that he’s heard plenty of times, and rightfully so.
On the occasion of this latest film, we thought we’d take a look back at 20 of his most notable roles, most of which are found in films far better than “Red Riding Hood.” That’s most, though, and not all. (See #10 and #13.) Still, as track records go, you’ll soon see that Oldman’s is pretty damned enviable.
1. Sid Vicious (Sid and Nancy, 1986): Most would agree that it was Oldman’s performance as the late Sex Pistols bassist which really put him on the radar. Even those who criticized the accuracy of the film generally had glowing words for Gary, and that goes all the way up to Johnny Rotten himself. “The chap who played Sid, Gary Oldman, I thought was quite good,” wrote John Lydon in his autobiography, Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs. “Even he only played the stage persona as opposed to the real person, (but) I don’t consider that Gary Oldman’s fault because he’s a bloody good actor.” This was echoed by the Evening Standard British Film Awards, who named Oldman the year’s Most Promising Newcomer.
2. Joe Orton (Prick Up Your Ears, 1987): Only 34 years passed between the life and death of English playwright Joe Orton, and one might be able to successfully argue that more people know him for his connection to the Fab Four (he wrote a screenplay, “Up Against It,” which was rejected as the Beatles’ cinematic follow-up to “Help!”) than for his plays, let alone this movie, but if you’ve managed to see “Prick Up Your Ears,” then you’re already aware of the phenomenal work Oldman does alongside Alfred Molina, who plays Kenneth Halliwell, Orton’s boyfriend and – eventually – his murderer. Indeed, Oldman’s performance earned him a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Actor.
3. Rosencrantz (Rosencrantz & Gildenstern are Dead, 1990): Fans of the Bard with a sense of humor have long praised the way Tom Stoppard took two relatively insignificant characters from “Hamlet” and turned their actions – or, rather, their lack thereof – into a full-length play, but there’s not quite as much unanimity about the way the production transitioned onto the big screen. Still, the only real complaint tended to be that it probably played better when performed on a stage, which stands to reason. (After all, the play’s the thing, innit?) Granted, the humor’s a bit highbrow for the mainstream, but if you like Shakespeare, you’ll love seeing Oldman and Roth pondering their characters’ existence.
4. Jackie Flannery (State of Grace, 1990): Although Phil Joanou’s Irish-American crime drama didn’t break any box office records, possibly because the Italian-American criminal contingent had the higher profile at the time (this was right around the same time as “Goodfellas”), it sure had a hell of a cast: Oldman is teamed with Sean Penn, Ed Harris, Robin Wright, John Turturro, John C. Reilly, and Burgess Meredith. Throw in an Ennio Morricone score, and you’ve got the kind of picture that critics drool over…and rightfully so.
5. Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK, 1991): When you make a film about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, if there’s one role that you absolutely, positively must cast perfectly, it’s that of the man who (ostensibly) assassinated him. In an interview with Empire, Oldman revealed that director Oliver Stone gave him a couple of plane tickets, a list of contacts, and told him to go research the part himself. You’d think it would’ve been easier on the budget if Stone had just paid for Oldman’s cab fare to the library, but, then, the library wouldn’t have provided Oldman with a tenth of the information about the man he was portraying that he ended up getting from his meeting with Oswald’s widow, Marina.
Bullz-Eye and our fellow bloggers made it to Dallas (North Texas!) for the Big Game, ready to have some fun. It was great to finally drive into Dallas and see all our comrades who finished their drives earlier and flew into Texas. We all made it to our destinations safely and securely in our Chryser 200s. I must say that none of us had any idea that the Eminem ad was going to launch the 200 as no other car before the 200 has been launched!
Arrived at Nissan Design America in San Diego in the all new 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet. We were greeted by manager of color trim and design Francois Farion. It's a beautiful day to be driving this segment breaking convertible.
