    Jacksonville Sharks Become Only Undefeated Team in the NAL




    The (5-0) Jacksonville Sharks are now the only National Arena League team in the league to not lose a game following their 60-21 win Monday night game against the Monterrey Steel in Mexico. Prior to kickoff the Steel and Sharks were both at the top of the NAL standings as two unbeaten power houses faced each other in Monterrey for a cross border matchup. The Steel found great success in their first year in the NAL and the only international team in the league and the unbeaten Sharks arriving in Mexico drew a lot of attention for a great matchup.

    On Monday night, Jacksonville struck first with a pass from Tommy Grady to Thyron Lewis and soon followed up with another bomb to Marquel Wade to give the Sharks an early two-touchdown lead. The quarter ended 17-0 and could not have ended better for the Sharks as Nick Belcher kicked a deuce through the uprights and defensive lineman Jermiah Price sacked Steel quarterback Kasey Peters in the endzone, earning a safety.

    Marquel Wade caught his second touchdown pass of the night in the second quarter, and Nick Belcher scored an extra two points as he made another deuce on the kickoff. The Sharks defense proved to be the best in the league yet again as they shutout the S...   [Read More]

    Superbowl Spirits




    Planning a Big Game Party and trying to figure out what to serve? Here's three cocktail recipes that will be a huge hit:

    Passing Game Punch

    Punch is perfect for a Super Bowl party (and its host), as it can be prepped in advance. Just be sure to add to the apple cider right before serving so it retains its refreshing effervescence.

    1 bottle Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey 6 cups apple cider 20-30 dashes Angostura Bitters 12-24 oz. chilled Hard Crisp Apple Cider 2 oranges Cinnamon, for rimming

    Peel one orange in twists to be used as a garnish for glasses, reserving orange. Mix together apple cider, rye and bitters in a large punch bowl (this can be done for up to a day or two before serving). Right before serving, add the hard cider and any additional bitters (to taste), then squeeze the peeled orange into the punch. Cut the other orange into wheels and add to bowl as a garnish. To serve, rim glasses with cinnamon, ladle punch over ice, and garnish with an orange twist.

    Bourbon Conversion

    This Boulevardier riff has a drizzle of brandied cherry juice for complex sweetness, and a float of hard cider to temper the ABV. Serving it over a sphere or large cube will keep the drink colder, l...   [Read More]

    Steve Miller Band with guests Los Lonely Boys April 2nd at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre!




    Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ‘60s. with albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music - and society - could be in the years to come. Then, in the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio – and impossible not to sing along with. Running through Miller’s catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz aficionados – Les Paul was his godfather ...   [Read More]
