This video from Cool Hunting had me salivating for a bike from ‘Confederate Motorcycles‘, and I don’t own or drive ANY motorcycles as it is. Here’s the story that led to Confederate’s very first offering, the ‘X132 Hellcat Speedster’:
My father fought four years in the Pacific theatre of WWII. The F6F Hellcat was the American industrial and mechanical design masterpiece that ruled the airways in that theatre, helping preserve the American Way. For this glorious feat we chose to christen our first motorcycle the Hellcat.
Now here’s the bike:
Tell me you don’t have a full-on Freedom Boner right now? And you’re not CLICK HERE NOW to read up on Confederate Motorcycles and the bikes they offer. If I had the money to buy one I’d be doing that right now…unfortunately at $69,500 USD, it’s a little out of my price range.

Barry Bonds’ Former Murrieta Golf Course Home ($4.5 million)
The former Home Run King of Baseball, Barry Bonds, once lived in the Murrieta Golf Course house shown above. After signing his massive contract with the San Francisco Giants back in 1993, Barry Bonds put the house on the market which sold for $2.1 million back in 1996 after spending a year on the market and dropping $1.1 million from where Bonds initially listed the house. The former slugger’s house is now back on the market for $4.499 million, and we really want it. There’s just one problem: we don’t have any millions in our bank account, let alone $4.499 million to buy this house.
Neil J. Leiterberg of the LA Times covers athlete and celebrity homes that hit the market, and put up a feature on this incredible Murrieta golf course home. Features of the home include:
The 1.2-acre estate centers on the Mediterranean-style home reached by a long, gated driveway. Entered through a foyer with a sweeping wrought iron staircase, the 11,700-square-foot building is highlighted by 30-foot ceilings, arched doorways, large skylights and detailed molding.
Among its amenities are a home theater with a hidden projector, a dual-island kitchen, an onyx-lined office, a media room and a gym. Fifteen tablets placed throughout the two-story floor plan control lighting, sound, security and other smart features. There are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in all.
Outdoors, the landscaped grounds center on a lagoon-style pool with a waterfall and water slide. A custom palapa with a barbecue and an outdoor living room complete the setting.
Uhhhh, yes please? Can we at least rent it out as a ‘BroBible Summer House’?!? For more on Barry Bonds’ former house listing you can CLICK HERE.
Ball and Buck’s ‘The Harrington Jacket’
I’ve included offerings from ‘Ball and Buck‘ a few times here in the past, mainly because I think they’re a badass company and I’m on board with the fact that they’re pumping out American made products for the bros of America. The ‘Ball and Buck’ Harrington Jacket is a lighter jacket designed for Spring, Fall, and even parts of Summer (depending upon where you live), and the look + feel of the jacket is designed to bring out your “inner Steve McQueen” while maintaining a rugged outdoors look. Which after reading up on the description is basically my own style in a nutshell, so I’ve just discovered that I’m either slightly basic or this jacket was designed with me in mind.
You can PURCHASE THE JACKET HERE NOW for $398, and while I know that’s not cheap, you have to consider this his water-resistant jacket that you can wear year-round both fashionably and functionally, and it’s made right here in the state of New York. You’ll be buying only the finest quality and style if you choose to purchase the Harrington Jacket, which comes in both Navy and Khaki.

It’s less than 20 bucks, so you can actually buy multiples if you want to have it in several styles, and it’ll hold all your cards and cash without taking up pocket space like one of those awful George Costanza wallets you’ve been trucking around for years.

TaylorMade Project (A) Golfballs + AeroBurner Fairway Wood
The TaylorMade Project (a) golfball is an absolute game changer. Here’s the thing: the average amateur golfer is only hitting greens-in-regulation 4 times per round, so ~75% amateurs are trying to save par. TaylorMade’s response to that is the Project (a) golfball that’s designed to give you the same spin as tour pros. The quickest way to shave strokes off your score is to become more effective around the greens, and the TaylorMade Project (a) golfball ($31.99 per box) will absolutely help you on your way to do doing that. To purchase the Project (a) golfball and for more information, CLICK HERE.
Just as the Project (a) golfball above will help you shave strokes off your game, so too will the TaylorMade AeroBurner Fairway Wood. According to TaylorMade’s website, the AeroBurner fairway wod “features an advanced aerodynamic shape designed with a shallow face, raised center crown and new hosel fin to deliver maximum distance.” What that means for you is more accuracy and distance from the fairway, which will help you shave strokes off the lengthy par-4’s and will help you get there in two on the Par-5’s. You can BUY IT NOW HERE for $229.99 on TaylorMade’s website.
Anthony ‘Invigorating Rush Hair + Body Wash’
This is a product I’ve actually been using for years ($15 for 3.4fl oz bottle, $26 for 12fl oz bottle), and it’s one that any time I have someone staying with me at my apartment they get out of the shower and ask ‘holy hell, where’d you buy that awesome body wash that smells like the forest?’ No joke, this has happened on multiple occasions. This body was from ‘Anthony’ smells of ‘Birch Leaf and Canadian Balsam’, and is basically the best smelling body wash I’ve ever encountered. You’d be a fool not to CLICK HERE AND BUY IT NOW to at least give it a shot, so you’d at least know what I’m talking about. Picture walking through the forests of Vermont, or the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, that’s basically EXACTLY what this body was smells like. Did I mention that you can also use it as a shampoo?! And if you’re REALLY looking to step up your bathroom and shower routine, might I suggest trying out two other products from Anthony (which I use nearly every day): this facial scrub made using sand from Bora Bora (and algae), and this Glycolic Facial Cleanser that will leave your face feeling as clean and refreshed as it’s ever been.
Pocket Knife Cuff Links
When I first saw these pocket knife cuff links ($99.95) my first reaction was: OH HELL YES! After taking a closer look my impression of the pocket knife cuff links is still ‘OH HELL YES!’ With a price tag of $99.95, they’re certainly not cheap, but then again cuff links are always expensive. So if you’re going to buy cuff links why not buy a pair that also doubles as pocket knives?! This is one of those products that I feel like never needed to exist, but I’m so happy that it does.
I’m ABSOLUTELY buying these for my next bro that gets married, and you can CLICK HERE TO BUY THEM NOW for $99.95 on Amazon for yourself or to give them as a gift. And I guarantee if you give the as a gift it’ll go down as one of the greatest gifts given in the history of gift giving.
Vizio E-Series Full-Array LED Smart TV
It’s tough to keep up with TV technology because it seems to be constantly changing, for instance the TV I have right now doesn’t have any smart apps at all. Hence why I’m salivating so much over the new ‘2015 VIZIO E-Series Full-Array LED Smart 70″ TV‘. The new E-Series TV’s from Vizio are basically as advanced as my computer but with better screen resolution. CLICK HERE NOW for more information (or to purchase).
