Not All Soccer Stars Are Found On The Pitch

This job I work, with the strange hours and odd tasks, affords me opportunities to do incredible things - doors are opened, strangers become less strange. I try to never take the opportunities I've earned for granted. I try to build relationships with all the people I meet, and those who only know...

I'm going on vacation this week, but before I go, here are my week 7 picks. You ever miss a flight? Its the worst. I did it once and it will never happen again. Seriously, I have a major complex about it. Its turned me into "Show up 3 hrs early to the airport" guy. I'm awful and I know it. On the...

Manley's Pro Football Picks Week 6

Earlier this week, Playboy announced that they would no longer be publishing nude photos of women in their magazines. Guess they finally decided to call our bluff on that whole "I just get it for the articles" excuse. This bums me out, but not because I'm pervy and like to look at naked women (...

What a time to be alive, you guys! Not only have scientists discovered traces of water on Mars, but McDonald's is FINALLY serving breakfast all day!

Beastmode: Which Commercial Is Best?

For those of us that have lived outside the Seattle area - and I'm not talking about watching Seattle stations in Vancouver BC or Eastern Washington - for those of us that have lived somewhere like Tucson, Arizona where there are no major sports teams, you know how awesome it is when big name...

Manley's Pro Football Picks Week 3

You guys, last week was a disaster. I only picked 5 games correctly. 5!!! I feel like my dog, Mookie Blaylock could do better. How embarrassing for me. Hey, speaking of embarrassing, I posted this picture on Facebook the other day for Throwback Thursday Boy did I think I was cool back in high...

Full 90 Extra Time: Tricities Wizard Cup Champions!

I somehow ended up driving to Vancouver on the same day as a super important Sounders FC match. It was a battle that would help Seattle cement their position in the MLS playoffs, gain more reps together as this new team, and so important to the travelling fans - bring home the Cascadia Cup! It's a...

Manley's Pro Football Picks Week 2

Earlier this week, a convicted murderer in Manchester England escaped to the roof of the prison he was held in. He stayed up there singing and dancing and generally being a lunatic until they got him down by giving him a pizza and some soda. When you think about it, that was probably the best turn...
