Here is a list of the 30 greatest football movies ever made courtesy of Fandango to wet your appetite.

Go Eagles!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

August 24, 2018 — This week’s photo challenge is look up.

Look up at the Philadelphia skyline to see a mix of the past and the future. Until recently, Philadelphia had an ordinance that buildings in the downtown area could not be taller than City Hall, constructed in 1871.

First came the Liberty Place buildings (left) and then the recently-completed Comcast Towers (right), the new tallest buildings in the area.

 

Weird Things About Traffic

August 20, 2018 – Traffic is a real head scratcher.

You’re driving along at a normal speed, and all of the sudden you’re moving slower than a three-toed sloth. There’s no indication why. No merging. No accidents. No school busses. You try to figure out the physics behind it, but you’re only fooling yourself. You were never good at math or science anyway, so you simply accept that traffic will always be a complete mystery.

Once upon a time I enjoyed getting caught in traffic. Between working and raising my son, my traffic time was my alone time. If traffic moved at the pace of a sloth, it meant more time listening to music or spending time with my thoughts. Now, he’s grown and I still have a hefty commute each day. Traffic is no longer what I desire, but it is a little more understandable thanks to this list of weird things about traffic from Listverse.com.

Not Your Father’s Disney

August 13, 2018 – Think you’re the ultimate theme park connoisseur?

If you’ve been to Disney more than 10 times you probably are. You may also want to seek help for your addiction and admit it’s time to broaden your horizons before you plan your next theme park excursion.

Why not consider one of these 10 Bizarre Theme Parks from Around the World courtesy of listverse.com, the people who love compiling lists as much as I do.

It may be too late to plan your summer vacation to one of these oddly fascinating theme parks this year, but look at the bright side. You’ll have plenty of time to plan next year’s trip. Between the 10 stages of hell, Vlad the Impaler, a crucifixion, and war mongering, there is something for the entire family.
