Cooley lived up to his “Captain Chaos” nickname by putting these football fans through fun, unexpected situations while it was captured on hidden cameras for “Courtyard Camera.”

This is one of the sickest pair of kicks out there. Reebok Classics and Villa teamed up to shout out one of Philly’s most iconic athlete. I was lucky enough to get this shoe and man…..these are awesome. Well done Reebok and Villa you have outdone yourself. The shoes came out today and if you are thinking about getting them make sure you do it quick. Don’t sleep on this. You could miss out.
Both Reebok Pump and Villa are celebrating 25th year anniversaries this year, so the collaboration needed to be one-of-a-kind. The Pump Question silhouette itself is the perfect marriage of two iconic, game changing innovations and honors the impact both brands have had on sneaker culture.
For this exclusive collaboration, every detail of the shoe pays tribute to Allen Iverson and his relationship with the city of Philadelphia – something no one knows better than Philly based retailer, Villa. The grey and burgundy color way is inspired directly from Villa’s logo and Iverson’s memorable Bentley. Between the LOVE park hangtag and the Liberty Bell logo, it is Iverson and Philadelphia through and through.

Christmas is fast approaching. You have made the decision to not give out the same old boring gifts like you did last year. Even though people did like getting a new jelly spread every month from you and it is the gift that keeps on giving all year round, you need a new idea. Why not give whiskey to your friends and family who are 21 years of age or older? They will appreciate that more than the apple apricot peppermint marmalade they received this past March.
If you need to know which whiskey to purchase here are few ideas that can help make holiday shopping a bit easier on you!
Jeremiah Weed Flavored Whiskies are a trio of curiously delicious whiskies crafted to delight whiskey drinkers who have been craving more excitement. Gift just one or gift them all, either way he is sure to enjoy the spectacular show.

For the bourbon lover on your list, Bulleit Bourbon has a high rye content in its mash bill which makes it a smooth and spicy bourbon. It’s also incredibly versatile so it can be enjoyed neat or mixed in a cocktail.
