30 Days to a Better Man Day 20: Perform Service

by Brett & Kate McKay

When we think about moments that epitomize manliness, we often think of the captain going down with the ship, the men who allow the women and children to go first, the soldier who throws himself on a grenade to shield his brothers from the blow, the old man who attempts to save a drowning child […]

Win a Free Amazon Kindle: The Toilet Paper National Bathroom Month Reading Giveaway

by Brett & Kate McKay

There’s nothing quite like the uninterrupted solitude of reading in the bathroom. I’m sure if you go into most men’s bathrooms in their homes, you’ll find a stack of Popular Mechanics or maybe a book or two next to the john. Believe it or not, reading in the bathroom is a manly tradition that dates […]

Attention: Change In the March Madness 2009 Contest

by Brett

Hey everyone. So, CBS Sports was a big bust. I thought people could sign in without me having to invite them, but apparently that wasn’t the case.

Last week, I linked to a company called Beardhead that sells these awesomely funny ski caps that cover your face so it looks like you’re growing a Grizzly Adams-esque beard.

West Coast Shaving Classic Shave Set Giveaway

by Brett & Kate McKay

Unfortunately, most men shave with cheapo disposable crap that costs […]
