Phil Dalhausser Talks Volleyball & Why He Loves LA

Pro Beach Volleyball Player Phil Dalhausser introduces you to the South Bay of Los Angeles, home of the famed Manhattan Beach, The Strand, and sun-soaked volleyball courts. I got to chat with 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist about why he loves LA and a bit on his training for the Olympics.

Phil started playing beach volleyball in 2005 and enjoyed a break-out year in 2006 when he partnered with Todd Rodgers, an 11 years veteran of professional beach volleyball. Since teaming up, the duo has become one of the best beach volleyball teams of all time. In the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, Phil and Todd won the gold medal match two sets to one against Marcio Araujo and Fabio Luiz Magalhaes of Brazil. Dalhausser made nine blocks in the championship match, with five coming in the deciding third set, putting the U.S. up to a 9-1 lead and eventually winning it 15-4. Dalhausser was named tournament MVP. Phil’s nickname on the tour was the “Thin Beast” and later became “Beijing Beast” after his performance in China.

If you truly believe that you are the number one fan for your team you need to check out the one of kind Bluetooth speaker from Nima Sports. It will improve your office, TV room, or wherever you want to show off your team pride. Just in time for the holidays you can get a gift for the sports fan on your list or even for yourself.

You just sync up your new football helmet speaker to your phone. Then just mute the TV and listen to the game from your favorite college team’s helmet. Even when it is not game day you can listen to your favorite sports talk shows that discuss your team’s performance from the weekend or listen to music.

There are three sizes for each helmet. You can pick up any size and you will be happy with your purchase. I was able to test out the small version of the Auburn Tigers helmet and was very pleased with the performance of the speaker as well as the look of the helmet. There are certain Bluetooth speakers that spend too much time on the design of the speaker and neglect the performance of that speaker. You can tell once it starts trying to play off your synced device. The sound quality is poor and at some points even irritating. Then there are others that focus way too much on the speaker. The look of that speaker is flimsy and often tends break and looks horrible in your office or game room. So you end up with a speaker that either under delivers in sound or look. Why would you spend money on that?

For the Nima Sports helmet speaker you can instantly tell that they put their heart and soul into the development of the design and sound. Any sports fans will tell you that when they rep their team they want something that looks authentic and real. Nima provides that slick look. These helmet speaker look like a mini version of the helmets they wear on game day.

What about the sound from the Nima Sports helmet? It comes with one down firing subwoofer for massive bass beats, two midrange speakers for clear sound, and seven preset equalizer options. The NIMA Sports helmet is compatible with any Smartphone, Tablet, MP3, PC or Mac with Bluetooth connectivity. Stream wirelessly and seamlessly control every feature of the speaker from anywhere within 65 feet. So this helmet from Nima is perfect for when you are tailgating right before the game.

Nima developed with the goal of connecting the sports fan with the music that invigorates them. The speakers come as extremely realistic NCAA team helmets, with NFL helmets and NBA basketball are soon to be released. From pumping up your fellow fans at a tailgate to displaying your team pride at work, this helmet is the perfect way to fervently display your fandom.

Well besides doing some funny commercials he paid a visit to Two-Time World Champion Andre Ward at training camp, ahead of his “Pound For Pound” showdown against Sergey Kovalev on Nov. 19 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Since announcing his retirement from the NFL, Oakland-native Lynch hasn’t missed a single Ward fight this year. In Ward’s first fight at light heavyweight against the then-undefeated Sullivan Barrera at Oracle Arena, Beast Mode was part of a star-studded entourage including Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Michael B. Jordan that walked Ward into the ring and then proceeded to rush the ring upon the fighter’s unanimous decision victory.

Budweiser Pays Tribute To Harry Caray

Chicago Cubs fans can rejoice! They just saw their team win the World Series. To celebrate long time Major League Baseball sponsor Budweiser pays tribute to legendary sportscaster and Cubs play-by-play man Harry Caray for Cubs fans everywhere.

The ultimate Cubs fan (and Bud man) Caray dreamed of the day his beloved Cubs would win the World Series but of course never got to call the final out for a Cubs Series win. Until now. The new video was made a reality by Budweiser working with the Caray family estate to get Caray’s actual audio/voice and then lay it over with footage from last night’s win in Cleveland and celebration here in Chicago. The result should give any Cubs and Caray fan goose bumps hearing Harry call the Series as if he was still here with us on earth.
