Compare your SAT score to a celebrity’s SAT score


By web gangsta | Published:

How well did you do on your SAT as you were applying for college?

For some, their SAT scores were pitiful – often discussed in subsequent college or job interviews by someone who “just doesn’t test well”.

What do football and underwear have in common?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch was chatting with a friend the other day who happens to run their business from home.

Part of their job involves meeting with clients, often at their homes at various times of day.  Hey, not everyone has an office job, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a job.

So they said that one thing that often happens to them — and they stressed the word “often” — was that their clients would take the meeting in their underwear.  Or their spouse would walk into the room in their tighty-whiteys.

Business insights learned from jumping on the Carolina Panthers bandwagon


By web gangsta | Published:

With the Super Bowl around the corner, there are the usual suspects playing in this year’s playoffs: the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos… and the Carolina Panthers?

Seemingly forgotten as a viable team this year, the Panthers started off the season at 1-3 before going on a winning tear through their opponents – finishing the season at the top of their division, the number 2 seed in the conference, and with a first round bye.

The cheapest baseball beer in the country

What are your baseball game rituals?

Do you always have to grab a hot dog, cotton candy, peanuts?  Do you insist on wearing a rally cap, bringing a glove to the game in the hopes that you’ll catch a foul ball?

For some, it’s not a baseball game without a cold, frosty beer in their hands – delivered to your seat by an enterprising college student who knows the way to make a perfect pour into the tall plastic cup.

Professional Tennis vs Drug Use: Who’s winning?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has always thought that it would be interesting to see an “all drugs allowed” Olympics.

Let anyone who wanted to compete fire up the latest steroid or health enhancement and duke it out.  Everything would be on the up-and-up and open — which would be the key. All competitors would have to openly admit to what they were doping and be tested to prove it.

But you could do whatever you want.  In that type of wide-open sporting environment, let’s break some records with an asterisk to see what the human body could be stretched to do if given the chance.

Swimming pools are filled with sweat, saliva… and more


By web gangsta | Published:

How many of Web Watch readers own a swimming pool?

Thought so.  It’s always a popular item for your FRIENDS to have, but it’s seldom something that you want to invest in yourself.  Some have said that a swimming pool is just a hole in the ground that you throw money into.  Add to the equation how hard it can be to sell a house that has a swimming pool — some people won’t mind or will openly embrace the pool being there.  Others will turn away from the pool at all costs, even if the rest of the house is perfect.

Sometimes owning a swimming pool just isn’t worth the time, hassle, and money for maintenance.

Top 100 Most Popular Drinking Games, and 5 Drinking Game Types


By web gangsta | Published:

Back in the day (and it’s always “back in the day” with these types of stories, isn’t it?), Web Watch would be known to partake in a drinking game or two amongst friends.

Why?  Mainly because the games themselves were kinda fun.  A bit stupid, perhaps, but always a fun challenge.  Drinking was merely secondary to the activity, as one never needs a “game” of any sort to take a drink whenever one would like.

The key, of course, is to know when to say when and back out of the activity.  Drinking too much because of some stupid game rule is never a good idea for anyone.
