The Best: Album

Welcome to “The Best,” a new series from the people who brought you “Would You Do,” “Blogger Interviews” and “What Really Grinds My Gears.”

It’s just what it sounds like: what’s the best ______? “Best” is such a subjective word and that’s really the point — let’s get you guys talking! If this works, there will be intelligent, thoughtful debate on the day’s topic. And if it doesn’t work, well, back to the drawing board.

Some great music over the years. And we don’t listen to that many types — Country, R&B and Pop have never really caught our ear. But there are some very successful artists from those genres. And then there’s the stuff we do listen to.

Some of the top albums ever recorded that come to mind:

-Dr. Dre: The Chronic
-Pearl Jam: Ten
-Snoop Dogg: Doggystyle
-Nirvana: Nevermind
-The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Wow! Some great music. The best album ever made? Yours please in the comments.

The Best: Uniforms

Welcome to “The Best,” a new series from the people who brought you “Would You Do,” “Blogger Interviews” and “What Really Grinds My Gears.”

It’s just what it sounds like: what’s the best ______? “Best” is such a subjective word and that’s really the point — let’s get you guys talking! If this works, there will be intelligent, thoughtful debate on the day’s topic. And if it doesn’t work, well, back to the drawing board.

There are so many different categories of uniforms: classics, throwbacks, modern and downright hideous (Oregon Ducks, we’re looking at you).

It’s so subjective; do you like the traditional Yankees pinstripes, the more modern looking Seahawks unis or the simple Carolina Blue?

Here are some of our favorites:

Raaaaiiiiders
-Cincinnati Reds white jerseys with pinstripes
-Texas Longhorn football all whites
-Ravens all blacks

Oh boy. There are so many good ones! Yours please in the comments.

The Best: MLB Ballpark


Welcome to “The Best,” a new series from the people who brought you “Would You Do,” “Blogger Interviews” and “What Really Grinds My Gears.”

It’s just what it sounds like: what’s the best ______? “Best” is such a subjective word and that’s really the point — let’s get you guys talking! If this works, there will be intelligent, thoughtful debate on the day’s topic. And if it doesn’t work, well, back to the drawing board.

Perhaps the best vacation we ever took was a nine-day tour of eight Major League ballparks. We took redeyes through lightning storms, got free umbrellas in Houston and hung out in the dugout with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan in Colorado.

We’ve seen a lot of ballparks and we bring many factors into play when thinking of our favorite. Appearance, food, fans, location, special features (like the pole in centerfield at Minute Maid!).

With all things considered, here’s how our top five would play out:

1. PNC Park (Pirates)

2. AT&T (Giants)

3. Camden Yards (Orioles)

4. Ballpark in Arlington (Rangers)

5. Wrigley Field (Cubs)

Your turn. Make your case for the best ballpark in the comments.
