Bullz-Eye on location at the Oral-B USA 500 with COMBOS Curiosities

Certain things are obvious #GoodCombos, like the hacker and that iCloud he hacked to gift the world with nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Bar Rafaeli, aka “The Fappening.

A #BadCombo could potentially be 95 degree heat and endless asphalt. But COMBOS came up with a solution.

COMBOS Curiosities are here to test every combination available. They posses an admitted “bottomless appetite for combinations,” because “the world is a much better place with more COMBOS around.”

With that in mind, COMBOS created The Hydrant Soaker, a combination Super Soaker and fire hydrant, and unleashed it on an unassuming public at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

And the people were pleased. It was hailed as a #GoodCombo by those who clamored to hose off, in what for some was probably their first almost legitimate shower of the week.

I was never a NASCAR guy, to the point where I questioned it being a real sport, until I went to the Daytona 500 earlier this year.

After my conversion, all I can say in my defense is that NASCAR is the ultimate spectacle. It really is marketed as an event rather than a race, because it has to be. Otherwise, it’s just guys driving cars around for hundreds of laps.

The atmosphere is fun. People camp out in the parking lots outside the track and pregame for hours before the race. It’s reminiscent of tailgating in an NFL stadium. But instead of teams, people root for individual drivers.

I met a guy with a homemade tattoo of “Thug Life” on his chest and a neck tattoo that said “Kool-Aid.” And he was cool. He walked up to me as I was standing around talking with JR from JR Sport Brief. He stood right next to me and extended his arm and handed me a flask. It was camouflage and emblazoned with the familiar “A” for the University of Alabama.

“What is this and where did it come from?” I said as as I took a whiff, and it gave off a pungent aroma, to be sure. He said, “This here is from me and my kindreds.”

Everything inside told me not to take a sip. But I did it anyway and I lived to tell about it: #GoodCombo. About two minutes later, I was offered the keys to a golf cart to cruise around in for an hour. We looked at each other and laughed.

What’s more American than a NASCAR race? A guy parachuting out of a plane with an American flag at a NASCAR race:

Another #GoodCombo is pit row and the start of the race. Watching a race start from there is just an amazing feeling — something you can’t get via television.

Even this video doesn’t do it justice, but at the very least, the sound and intensity are evident:

The only #BadCombo for me was the sun and the wife beater I encased my torso in for nearly the entire day. Who’s the redneck now? #PoorPlanning.

COMBOS previously staged combinations include the Treehugger in Cobleskill, New York and the Traffic Jam in downtown Chicago. The next COMBOS Curiosity is Slidewalk taking place in East Lansing. Visit Tumblr here to see what COMBOS is up to.

Bullz-Eye heads to Whatever, USA with Bud Light

bud-light-up-for-whatever

When I received my invitation to Whatever, USA, the first thought that went through my mind was, “How many children will be conceived as a result of this Bud Light promotion?” And then, “Would there be some inherent shame in that?”

I can tell you with absolute certainty that if you’re reading this 20 years from now, Google searching your true lineage, there is NOTHING you have to be embarrassed about. Bud Light wanted to create the ultimate party weekend and they absolutely nailed it.

At one point during the three days I spent in Whatever, USA, my body composition was roughly 87% Bud Light. But it wasn’t just the endless, literally endless, supply of Bud Light, or the fact that Bud Light was being foisted upon you at every turn, that made Whatever, USA so great. It was the onslaught of once-in-a-lifetime events piled on top of each other, sandwiched between meeting great people from all over the world with one common denominator: being #UpForWhatever.

Here’s some background: From roughly 204,000 video submissions, 1,000 #UpForWhatever winners were selected, given 48 hours to grab a friend, pack their bags and leave for Whatever, USA. In store for them were three days and two nights of activities, epic adventures and unexpected performances at Whatever, USA.

On the surface, you would think that bringing 2,000-plus strangers into a remote location and feeding them Bud Light products exclusively for three days couldn’t help but end badly. But it was the exact opposite. It was like everyone was cut from the same #UpForWhatever cloth.

Bullz-Eye on location with Bud Light’s Mayor of Whatever, USA

bud-light-mayor-selfie

If you’re “Up for Whatever,” what do you do when Bud Light offers to fly you to New York City to meet the Mayor of Whatever? You ask them what time you need to be at the airport.

Last week, Bullz-Eye attended a meet and greet (and grope) with Bud Light and the Mayor of Whatever, USA. Details were sparse, candor was high and the Bud Light flowed freely like the “salmon of Capistrano.”

The Bud Light “Up for Whatever” campaign is one of the coolest marketing campaigns in recent memory. Bud Light is building a town as we speak called “Whatever, USA” at an unannounced, unknown location. Purportedly, it’s an epic town created solely for three days of unexpected fun.

The Mayor was exactly who you would think he’d be. Easy to talk to, free wheeling, and he doesn’t get all weird if you get a little handsy. If a Mayor is a reflection of the people that comprise his city, then Whatever, USA will be a straight-up bro-down.

In this video, the Mayor talks about a few mayoral things, like when he answers his “dude phone” and when he answers his “mayor phone.”

Guinness brings soccer to the U.S. in style, breaking records along the way

When the folks at Guinness invited us to join them in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the weekend to drink some beer and watch Manchester United and Real Madrid battle it out at The Big House, we couldn’t decline. After all, how often do you get the opportunity to see two of the biggest soccer clubs in the world compete live, let alone on U.S. soil? For most people, it’s a once in a lifetime experience, and with United absent from this year’s UEFA Champions League, the chances that fans will ever see Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo share the stage again seems pretty unlikely.

So as the resident soccer fan on staff, I flew out to Detroit on Friday to meet up with fellow bloggers from sites like Made Man, Bleacher Report, Inside Hook and World Soccer Talk. After quickly checking into my room at the MGM Grand Hotel, I joined the rest of the group as we boarded a van headed for the home of the Michigan Wolverines to watch Manchester United and Real Madrid’s open training sessions. Both teams appeared to be relaxed but focused on the night leading up to the big game, engaging in the usual fitness drills and rounds of keep-away, while a few of the players even tried their hand at some football of the American variety by tossing the pigskin around with University of Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner.

Of course, it was all just a tease for the real festivities on Saturday, which began with miles of traffic on I-94 as tens of thousands of soccer fans flooded the college town of Ann Arbor for the big game. Thanks to some creative detouring by our driver, we arrived in plenty of time to enjoy a cold pint at the Guinness beer garden, who, as the main sponsors of the International Champions Cup, were allowed to serve alcohol inside the usually “dry” stadium, a rarity for the university and college sports in general.

Great golf and beautiful models at Links and Laces Golf Tour

What can be better than a golf getaway and a beautiful resort? Add in beautiful models and great parties and you have an unforgettable experience like the Links and Laces Golf Tour.

We were very happy to be on location at the Fantasy Springs golf resort for the Links and Laces event recently. We knew we were in for a great weekend right away at the kickoff party, with tons of beautiful models on hand with the golfers as they geared up for a fun weekend. We put together this slideshow of photos with some highlights from the weekend.

The golf course is beautiful as you can see from the photos, and on a hot day golfers were greeted at every hole by lovely models with refreshments. Sponsors like Sunbuddy Suncreen were on hand to provide their all-natural products to protect everyone from the desert sun. We also met the ladies from Haute Shot Golf who gave the guys some great gift ideas with their brand of rockin’ golf skorts for women.

After the first day of golfing, everyone was able to let loose at the superhero party held by the pool, which was a cosplay bonanza with beautiful models and the golfers dressing up as their favorite superhero. We saw many sexy outfits from the models as you can see from this slideshow we posted after the event, and you can also check out the gallery posted on the Links and Laces website.

The pool party and bikini contest the next day was also a blast, as each of the models were able to show off in their favorite bikinis while the music thumped at this afternoon party. It must of been difficult for the judges to pick the ten finalists and the ultimate winner as there were so many great models at this event.

That evening, the models got to put on a real show at the lingerie party where we saw some amazing outfits featuring thigh-high stockings, bustiers and plenty of lacy lingerie. Everyone had a great time partying the night away.

We've covered many events like this over the years, but this event stood out as one where everyone was having a great time all weekend long. It's a true getaway, and any guy who likes golf and enjoys hanging out with beautiful models should check out one of the Links and Laces events. Events are held all over the country throughout the year so you have many options to fit this into your schedule. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to see what you're missing.
