Student Eats Bugs, Girls Blow Cockroaches, Guy Has Sex With Carhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/05/14/student-eats-bugs-girls-blow-cockroaches-guy-has-sex-with-car/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/05/14/student-eats-bugs-girls-blow-cockroaches-guy-has-sex-with-car/#comments Thu, 14 May 2015 16:00:35 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23363 Camren Brantley Rios 30 Days Eat Bugs

Let’s face it, people do weird sh*t. The reality is we will never know why and what motivates these people to do the things they do. The only bright side to the madness is we do have a chance to laugh about it. After all, who doesn’t love a good laugh from time to time.

Yesterday, I had a rather interesting conversation with my mom. At the end of the conversation, I thought to myself, WHAT THE F*CK. See, me and my mom literally spent 10 minutes talking about all the weird news we had read on the internet. The conversation went something like this:

Me: OMG! Did you see the two Japanese girls blowing cockroaches back and forth in each others mouth?

Mom: You know I saw that shit (Yes, mom uses bad words). I read all those crazy stories all the time. Wait, have you seen the video of the idiot having sex with a car tailpipe?

Me: WHAT? Naw, get out of here. How is that possible.

Mom: My friend sent me the video. That fool really got down on his hands and knees then tried to hump the damn thing.

Me: People are crazy. Speaking of foolishness, did you read about the student who only ate bugs for a month?

Mom: Get the f*ck out of here.

If you haven’t heard a college student decided to only eat bugs for one month. You can read all about why he made this important decision on Food Republic. In a nut shell (pun intended), 21-year-old college student, Camren Brantley-Rios, pledged to eat insects three times daily for an entire month and blogged about it on his blog, 30 Days of Bugs. He was inspired by another blog, Girl Meets Bugs. He also had a desire to do something good for the world. Before you shake your head, bugs are healthy and his website is really insightful.

Now, for the two Asian Girls who blew cockroach into each others mouth on a Japanese game show, well, we will let you be the judge. Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Some do it for the gram (Instagram) while others do it for fun and games. In this instance they did it for a game show.

Last and definitely least, let us have a moment of silence for the freaky guy who humped and humped and humped the tailpipe of a car. Why? Because he is dead wrong for this.

Top 10 Hottest Nike Sneaker Releases of 2015http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/05/13/top-10-hottest-nike-sneaker-releases-of-2015/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/05/13/top-10-hottest-nike-sneaker-releases-of-2015/#comments Wed, 13 May 2015 22:42:03 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23340 Nike Roshe White Black Main

If you follow Mankind Unplugged’s style section, it’s no secret that we have a thing for men’s sneakers. We typically feature sneakers that aren’t the norm, or ever so popular, but worth a second look. Realizing most of you guys are true Nike types at heart, we enlisted the help of our buddies over at TrainerAddict.com to give us the rundown on the latest and hottest Nike sneakers released so far in 2015.

Nike has been busy bringing us plenty of different colorways for its most popular ranges, including Huarache, Air Max and Roshe Run, so you have plenty of sneakers to choose from. Below are Trainer Addict’s top 10 hottest Nike sneaker releases this year.

Nike Air Max Zero White Navy
Nike Air Max Zero
This beautifully crafted sneaker was designed 29 years ago by legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield, but wasn’t released until recently. Nike decided to bring this design back to life. After adding some modern elements, Nike released the sneaker as part of the annual Nike Air Max Day on the 26th March.

Nike Air Huarache White Pure Platinum 2
Nike Air Huarache – White Pure Platinum
The Huarache has seen a huge resurgence in the last couple of years after its original launch in 1991. Since its comeback, Nike has released a number of colorways including this all-white addition. The all-white Nike Air Huarache is Nike’s second most successful release for the Huarache only after the release of the ‘Triple Black in 2014.

Nike Air Huarache Black Oison Green 2
Nike Air Huarache – Black / Poison Green
Nike has given numerous models the ‘Poison Green’ treatment and now this time they turned their sights to the Huarache Black & Poison Green. Nike cleverly tied it in with the popular all-black huarache, which sold like hotcakes.

Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire Qs Iridcent Deep Pewter Black 2
Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire QS ‘Iridecent’ – Deep Pewter / Black
This interesting sneaker was released as part of Nike’s ‘Iridecent’ pack and features a hologram coating which changes color when under certain lights. The unique design was very popular with sneakerheads and the pack sold-out within days.

Nike Roshe One Nm Breeze White Black
Nike Roshe Run NM Breeze – White / Black
The Roshe Run is hugely successful for Nike this year. Nike released several variations and colorways. One of our favorite is the stunning Nike Roshe Run NM Breeze white and black addition released as part of Nike’s summer push of white colorways.

Nike Air Huarache Rainbow Sd
Nike Air Huarache – Rainbow SD
This colorway was a brilliant and unique addition to the Huarache range, which sold really well and was actually restocked by most online retailers due to its success. The design features blue, violet, and orange tones finished off with a brilliant multi-tone clear outsole.

Nike Air Max Thea Id
Nike Air Max Thea iD
The Air Max Thea is a fairly new range for Nike that has really taken off this year. In addition to their standard colorways, Nike has added their iD feature to the range allowing consumers to customize the colour, design and even add your name or tag. Sizes are available for both men and women.

Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire – New York (City Pack)
Nike Air Max 1 Ultra City New York
Nike has a history of bringing out ‘City Packs’ and didn’t disappoint with this stunning black and white colorway representing New York. The whole pack was popular, but this is arguably the best colorway in the pack selling well for both men and women.

Nike Lunar Huarache Light Sp White 2
Nike Lunar Huarache Light SP – White
A little different from the most popular model in the Huarache range, the Nike Lunar Huarache Light SP brings an excellent variation. The design features premium leather along with lunar cushioning. The cost will set you back over $200 for a pair, but it is worth adding to your collection.

Nike Air Max 90 Crocodile Infrared Black Red
Nike Air Max 90 Crocodile Infrared
The Air Max 90 Crocodile Infrared was released as part of a 25-year anniversary of the Air Max. The design features 3 types of leathers including faux crocodile leather. The colorway received the ‘Infrared’ treatment adding a nice finish to the design.

If you are looking for more unique trainers to add to your collection or you simply want to stay up to date on the hottest Nikes, take the jump over to traineraddict.com. We are sure Train Addict has something in their current stock that will catch your eye. Their Instagram (@TrainerAddict) page is pretty impressive as well.

Every man should have a classic, sporty, and luxury timepiece. For men, the watch is the ultimate fashion symbol. Guys, the ladies are looking at your wrist, and having a nice watch says a lot about you! Meister has added three new timepieces that will help you look sharper and more stylish in no time at all.

Meister watches are an affordable accessory that can make you look like a million bucks. Classic and not too flashy, the Meister collection has fashion-forward options for a day in the office, at the ball field, or on a date with your special someone. With Meister timepieces, the emphasis is state-of-the-art quality craftsmanship. So, you make the right impression whether you are heading into that boardroom with your colleagues or wining and dining your date. By now, you probably know that women live for noticing all the small details. And that’s where your watch is exactly where as a manly man you can dress to impress. Functional but still attractive, luxurious but still affordable, Meister offers the best-of-both-worlds within your arm’s reach.

The Meister reputation has caught on, and even popular NBA players are sporting this style off of the court. Take your cue from public figures like Anthony Davis, Carmelo Anthony, Victor Oladipo, Kevin Durant, and Dwight Howard. All of these successful dudes have been spotted wearing the Meister on their wrists. They all looked great, and they’re probably pretty punctual, too. Slam dunk!

Each year, Meister rolls out the newest watches you won’t want to miss. We were fans of the 2014 Meister collection and even picked up a piece for ourselves. Now that we’ve taken a peek at the latest and greatest collection, we’re going to go ahead and make a little more room in the jewelry box. Check out some of Meister’s most recent additions right below so you can start building up your collection. These three new additions will bring a burst of fresh flavor to your springtime fashion sense.

Meister Clasic Rose Gold Black Brown Croc Band
ClassicRose Gold / Black with Brown Croc Band
One of the brands first timepieces inspired by traditional watch design, the “Classic” rose gold with brown croc leather band watch is ideal for the guy who values style and authenticity. This dress watch is new for 2015, but has a classic timeless feel. Consisting of a rose gold stainless steel bezel, the timepiece is made using a high polish 43mm watch case with a slimmer 12mm thickness profile. Water resistant up to 100 meters, the movement on this visually appealing black and rose gold dial with Roman numerals is powered by a Miyota Japanese multifunction quartz movement.

Meister Ambassador Rose Gold Brown Croc Leather
AmbassadorRose Gold / Brown with Croc Leather Band
The Ambassador collection of watches were re-imagined in four new colorways and designed with Roman numeral dials for a timeless look. All the new colorways are exceptionally, but we must admit the rose gold on brown with the croc leather band speaks to us. A man’s man watch, this signature and luxurious Ambassador should be pulled out on the day you have that grown up feeling. The brown and black dial and rose gold stainless steel bezel are a complimentary combination. Whether you are rocking a suit and tie or going for the business casual look, this timepiece looks adds a bit of sophistication.

Meister Ambassador MKIII Stainless Steel Black Red Rose Gold
Mark III Ambassador – Black / Red / Rose Gold with Rubber Band
The new black, red, rose gold with rubber band Ambassador MKIII is one of our favorites introduced for the Spring 2015 collection. A luxury sport inspired design houses a 6-hand Japanese chronograph quartz movement this watch is made to stand out. This limited edition model utilizes a black stainless steel case, a black bezel with a PVD finish, and a matching black rubber band with red and gold accents. The black on black on black makes this new Mark III an instant classic and a must have for your collection.

We’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize it enough. Men who take pride in their appearance will wear just the right timepiece. Even the other guys will notice when you have something new on your wrist. So, do yourself a favor and take the jump over to Mstrwatches.com and check out what they have to offer.

Interview: Quinten Rollins’ Journey To The NFL Draft and To Defy The Doubthttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/27/interview-quinten-rollins-journey-to-the-nfl-draft-to-defy-the-doubt/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/27/interview-quinten-rollins-journey-to-the-nfl-draft-to-defy-the-doubt/#comments Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:42:48 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23299 Quinten Rollins Speed Stick Defy The Doubt

Admit it, you have no doubt had one of those mornings when you woke up and wanted to do something different. We have all been there. This week, NFL draft prospect Quinten Rollins’ “change of“ fate may well be destined for unexpected professional success just because he wanted to do something different.

You see, Quinten was a star basketball player for three years before deciding to make a pivotal move and become a defensive specialist on the football field for Miami (Ohio). He impressed with 72 tackles and 6 interceptions his first and only year on the field, won the Defensive Player of the Year in his conference (MAC), and played in the Senior Bowl last January. Worth noting, Quinten also has 214 carer steals, 319 career assists, and was a three-time Defensive Player of the Year on the basketball court.

With only one year of college football under his cleats, Quinten is trying to defy the doubt and embark on the journey to become a star cornerback in the National Football League. With the help of Speed Stick, his story of overcoming doubt and finding new opportunities will inspire others to overcome negativity and achieve highly positive results.

We caught up with the 5’11 cornerback right before the draft to discuss how he has been able to transition from basketball to football in such a spectacular way. Our questions were serious and not-so-serious, including what was it like being invited to the coveted NFL Combine and who makes his list of top three cornerbacks of all-time. We even put him on the spot about his choice of eye candy — Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, or Beyonce. After all, he’s moving into the big times and every pro athlete has their arm candy.

We’ve heard it thousands of times, dare to be different — see how Quinten has stepped up and taken it to heart.

Quinten Rollins Speed Stick Defy The Doubt

Tam: When was the moment it clicked and you realized it was time to transition from basketball to football?

Quinten: I kind of was searching for schools during basketball season my senior year, so I would say probably around Christmas break when we started conference play was when it really clicked and I knew I was going to be playing.

Tam: What do you anticipate will be your biggest transition from college to the pros?

Quinten: The speed of the game. Like going from high school to college, it’ll be the same from college to the pros…getting acclimated to the speed of the game and how the guys move at that level. These are athletes that are the top players in the world, setting acclimated to the speed of the game and then once I get a feel for that, I should be fine.

Tam: You seem to be a very focused young guy. Is there a different mentality that you have as a football player vs. a basketball player?

Quinten: No, not at all, I play basketball and football the same way. I just go out there with a competitive drive that’s through the roof and I just want to dominate my opponent. Obviously, you can show more aggression in football than basketball, but I’m still the same person. I desire to win more than anything and then play my best, give it my all, leave nothing to chance. I say that would be me in a nutshell.

Quinten Rollins Football Basketball Player Miami

Tam: Allen Iverson recently named his top 10 rappers of all time and people were shocked at his list. Give me your top 3 rappers?

Quinten: My top three rappers? Well, Young Jeezy is definitely going to be in there, he’s my favorite artist. I’d say Biggie definitely has to be in there and Tupac…I gave you two historic rappers and then my favorite rapper.

Tam: Who’s the best eye candy? Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, or Beyonce?

Quinten: I feel like that’s an easy answer: Beyonce. I’m not a fan of Kim Kardashian or Amber Rose, even though they’re both pretty.

Tam: Not your type?

Quinten: Beyonce is more natural, so I’d go with her.

Tam: Good choice. If you’re in the locker room preparing for the Super Bowl, what song is playing in your headphones?

Quinten: I’m pretty sure there’ll be another great song to come out between then and now, but now, either a Lil Boosie ‘Like A Man,’ or a Young Jeezy track.

Tam: What do you do differently as a football player vs. being a basketball player on game day?

Quinten: Well, as a basketball player I’d always go out, college-wise, I’d go out — listen to music and then go out on the court, put some shots up and just have some fun with the guys before we get really serious when we hit the court. And as a football player, I stay in the locker room the whole time and listen to music. I never went out with the guys and did extra things. I always stayed in the locker room with my music until it was time to hit the field. That was the difference in my preparation.

Tam: If you were stranded on an island for entertainment purposes, who would you prefer to be with Pete Carroll or Rex Ryan?

Quinten: I’d have to go with Pete Carroll.

Tam: Can you talk a little bit about your relationship with Speed Stick Gear and how you got involved in the #DefyTheDoubt campaign?

Quinten: I was fortunate and blessed enough to have an interesting story and Speed Stick wanted to capture it and show my journey from the obstacles and things I’ve overcome in my life, as well as the transition from football to basketball. Hopefully, there will be more to come if I can continue to grow, which is what I plan on doing. I’m just fortunate enough that Speed Stick thought my story was good enough to share with the world and hopefully we can partner up again in the future.

If people have the opportunity, you can go on to YouTube.com/Speedstick and see kind of a highlight of what Speed Stick and I put together. It’s a good piece.

READ: Interview: NASCAR Driver Cole Whitt Talks The Daytona 500, Speed Stick, And Plans To “Defy The Doubt”

Tam: What does Defy the Doubt mean to you?

Quinten: Defy the Doubt to me means just overcoming things, people that doubt you. I’ve been doubted–it’s actually so fitting because that’s the caption for it. I’ve been doubted my whole life. I was that kid growing up that people said I was never going be this or that because I was always in trouble. I was kind of like a troublemaker when I was a kid until I got a grip on things, so I was always being doubted. Then I straightened my act up.

I remember when I got to college, all these people were saying I was gonna be home after one semester because I just couldn’t handle being away from home, not realizing that I was always used to kind of teaching myself how to live. Even though I had my mother and my grandmother leading and guiding me, I never had a male figure around, so I was always teaching myself my whole life.

Anything that’s come my way, I’ve always found a way to grow through it, not try to go around it, but find my way through it and learn a lesson from it.

Quinten Rollins Nfl Combine

I’ve been fighting this, defying the doubt all my life. Even when I made the transition from basketball to football, I’m pretty sure people said this kid is not going to be able to do it, what is he thinking. Then I had the season I had and all the sudden people started believing. I’m pretty sure people are gonna have doubts about me making the transition from college to the pros.

It’s gonna be another opportunity for me to work hard, put all the negativity to the side and make a positive light out of it, then I guess we’ll see in a couple years if I’ve defied the doubt again.

Tam: Awesome! Who are your top three cornerbacks to ever play the position?

Quinten: Of all time?

Tam: All time.

Quinten: I don’t know the history of the game and I don’t want to show any disrespect to the great ones that came before me that I’m not aware of, but I’d say Charles Woodson, Darrelle Revis, and my last one, I’d say Patrick Peterson.

Tam: If Pat Riley and John Calipari were NFL coaches, whom would you want to play for?

Quinten: Pat Riley

Tam: Who would you consider the greatest two-sport player of all time?

Quinten: Ooh, I’d say Bo Jackson.

Tam: If you weren’t playing football, what would you be doing right now?

Quinten: If I wasn’t playing football, that’s hard for me to answer because I like to live in the moment. Yeah, that’s hard to answer, but I’d still be doing something to try to be successful. That’s the only answer I can give you, I don’t know because I like to live in the moment. I’m enjoying this path I’m on, so I really haven’t thought about that. I know what I want to do after, coaching.

Tam: What would people be surprised to know about Quinten?

Quinten:There’s really nothing surprising about me. I’m just a typical guy, honestly, but I can think of something, just give me a minute.

Tam: There has to be something, maybe you like country music or reality TV?

Quinten:I’d say my favorite TV show is Bates Motel. It’s a little crazy show, but it’s very interesting to me. I’m curious to see what happens in the next episode.

’90s Running 530′ New Balancehttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/24/90s-running-530-new-balance/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/24/90s-running-530-new-balance/#comments Fri, 24 Apr 2015 23:22:43 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23290 90s Running 530 New Balance

It’s been a while since we featured a pair of New Balance sneakers, so when we randomly spotted the new ’90s Running 530′ on Tumblr we got excited. These re-issued New Balance 530’s really speak to our sense of style. One of New Balance’s most popular models in the past decade, the windbreakers as well as bold colors of this 530 are stylishly assembled and as the name suggests, very reminiscent of the ’90s. As noted on New Balance’s official website, “these shoes are all that and a bag of chips.” With classic styling and unique diagonal color-blocking, oh snap, the ‘90s are back.

90s Running 530 New Balance

The 530’s also includ New Balance’s Encap technology, a core of soft cushioning EVA in the midsole with a tough polyurethane rim for more support and durability. You can pick up a pair on NewBalance.com. Retail $99.99

Lip Sync Battle: Terry Crews vs. Mike Tysonhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/23/lip-sync-battle-terry-crews-vs-mike-tyson/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/23/lip-sync-battle-terry-crews-vs-mike-tyson/#comments Fri, 24 Apr 2015 06:32:21 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23283 Mike Tyson Lip Sync Battle

Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV hosted by LL Cool J is everyone’s new favorite show. If you have been hiding under a rock and off social media, you probably haven’t heard about the celebrity-driven musical competition. From Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s epic lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon to Anna Hathaway’s rendition of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball, it’s been pure comedy watching these celebrities channel their inner rock star.

The latest celebrities to flex their chops on Lip Sync Battle include Mike Tyson and funnyman Terry Crews. Mike and Terry’s performance was everything anyone could have imagined it to be. When we finally stopped laughing, we realized how challenged Mike Tyson was in the coordination department outside of the ring. He has absolutely no dancing or lip sync skills. Can you say awkward. We are glad that Iron Mike is feeling sexy and all and that he managed to squeeze in some extra medium pants, but seriously.

There have been so many special moments on Lip Sync Battle. If you haven’t watched the show you are missing out. Take the jump over to Spike’s official YouTube page and get caught up on all the episodes you have missed. Did we mention social media maven, Chrissy Teigen is also a permanent fixture on the show. Chrissy may be great eye candy, but her dancing skills (or lack there of) are just a tad bit above Mike Tyson. Wait, maybe they are below. Either way, make sure to watch the show.

2015 NFL Schedule: 5 Teams, 5 Players, And 5 Games To Watchhttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/22/2015-nfl-schedule-5-teams-5-players-and-5-games-to-watch/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/22/2015-nfl-schedule-5-teams-5-players-and-5-games-to-watch/#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 02:32:36 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23270 Nfl Season Schedule Games Watch

The NFL released the full 2015-16 regular season schedule and while there are many games to be hyped about, we thought we would highlight some teams, players, and games that are a must watch. Below are 5 teams, players, and notable games that we think deserve your attention as you embark upon the new season.

5 Teams To Watch

Dallas Cowboys
Why: They are America’s team and it’s all about Jerry’s world. Enough said.

Seattle Seahawks
Why: The Seahawks aren’t the defending Superbowl Champs, but the Legion of Boom can be quite exciting to watch. It should be very interesting to follow their journey as they attempt to return to the Super Bowl for the third year in a row. Whether they can recover from bad play calling that prevented them form repeating as Super Bowl Champs last year is up for discussion. You know the call we are talking about. Someone get Pete Carroll some Skittles.

New York Jets
Why: Without Sexy Rexy it should be interesting to see what the J-E-T-S are capable of doing. The Jets immediately lost all their bravado when Rex Ryan left. From Bill Parcells to Herman Edwards and of course Rex, most of the Jets swag in previous years has solely come from their coaches. Without a smooth talker at the helm, we hope the Jets’ stepchild syndrome won’t be a factor.

We don’t expect for the Jets to make the front page of the Daily News, but then again they did acquire that guy Revis. Darrelle Revis has already made headlines by expressing his wishes to accompany his former team (New England Patriots) to the White House to meet President Obama in celebration of their Super Bowl win.

Buffalo Bills
Why: For the same reason we listed the Jets as a much watch team, the Bills now have Mr. Bravado, Rex Ryan. Either Rex is going to prove to be the defensive mastermind he is or become the laughingstalk he was while in New York. Either way, Rex and the Bills should be must watch TV.

Cleveland Browns
Why: There is only one reason to watch the Browns: Johnny Football. Who doesn’t want to be in the first row to watch the train wreck or road to redemption that will be Johnny Manziel. With all the talk of the Browns trading up for Marcus Mariota in the draft, things could become really interesting.

5 Players To Watch

Jameis Winston
Why: Should the Tampa Bay Bucs draft Jameis Winston with the number one pick? Who knows. Regardless of where he goes, the Jameis Winston Show will be equivalent to the Ringling Bros. Circus. Get your popcorn ready.

Johnny Manziel
Why: Can Johnny be successful in the NFL? Better yet, can “Johnny Manziel” overcome “Johnny Football?” Are we watching another Todd Marinovich in the making? Will h surfer from the star in college and a bust in the NFL syndrome? The upcoming season should be really interesting.

Tim Tebow
Why: IF (a big what if) he makes the team… Need we say anything else? Are you Tebowing yet? Let’s take a moment as we imagine the memes and foolishness that is sure to ensue.

Robert Griffin III
Why: Ohhh RG3. It’s do or die for him. He no longer has Mike Shanahan to blame and Jay Gruden has made it clear, he is not really wanted in the nation’s capital.

Peyton Manning
Why: He is Peyton. Remember, this guy may not be box office in the post season, but he is money during the regular season. This is more than likely Peyton’s last season and he is sure to go out throwing. The thought of him retiring with his little brother Eli having more rings should be his number one motivating factor.

5 Notable Games To Watch

Season Opener
Why: The Pittsburgh Steelers are taking on the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Steelers Nation has lost some thunder over the years and will be without Troy Polamalu, but the other guy in the NFL with great hair, Tom Brady, will be on the field.

Thanksgiving Day Games
Why: This year line-up of games may not be ideal, but it’s tradition. How about those Cowboys?

Bills @ Jets
Why: Call it a reunion or revenge game. Rex’s Buffalo Bills at the Jets during week 17 is going to be must see TV. We definitely plan to watch.

First Sunday Night Football
Why: Mark your calendar for September 13. The first “Sunday Night Football” game of the season features the Dallas Cowboys at Jerry’s World facing off against the Giants. The first Sunday night game in the house that Jerry built is going to be spectacular.

Conference Rematch
Why:The best four teams from last season will go head to head. The Green Bay Packers will host the Seattle Seahawks in a NFC conference championship rematch and the Indianapolis Colts will test their skills against Patriots in a prime-time home game for an AFC conference championship rematch.

It’s been a while since we posted a sexy photo, but when we found ourselves clicking through Sydney A. Maler’s Instagram account, we were inspired by one photo in particular. Reunited with her friend and major sex pot (her words not ours) Kylie Rae, Sydney has a very informative and inspiring message to all you want to be suitors. The message is simple: Cute… and psycho!

Want to see more of Sydney? We have plans to post many more photos of this beauty, but until that time, make sure to take the jump over to her Instagram page. We promise you won’t be disappointed. We can confirm she is cute and worth the click; however, we cannot confirm or deny whether or not she is “psycho.” Grab a beer because at this moment you may look like you need one and sit back and enjoy the view.

5 Signs She Wants To Be More Than Friendshttp://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/06/5-signs-she-wants-to-be-more-than-friends/ http://mankindunplugged.com/2015/04/06/5-signs-she-wants-to-be-more-than-friends/#comments Mon, 06 Apr 2015 09:55:28 +0000 http://mankindunplugged.com/?p=23158 Signs She Wants To Be More Than Friends

Reading the signs that women send can be a challenge, to say the least. Let’s admit it, oftentimes women aren’t even sure about their own emotions. So, if she’s still working out her feelings, you fellas are going to need to read some of the more subtle signs so you can keep up with her.

Men hardly ever want to be in the friend zone, especially if there is an opportunity to be more than friends. If you are wondering if she really is looking for more than friendship, see if any of these signs apply to you and your almost sweetheart.

She Tells You Everything
Yeah, we know, most women will talk to just about anyone who will listen. However, if you are her go-to ear for all her highs, lows, gossip and vent sessions, there is a good chance she thinks of you as more than a close friend. In fact, she may be using these “talks” as a way to get closer to you. Pay closer attention to how you communicate, and listen for what she may not be saying: She wants to move out the friend zone and become something more in your life. Women are very attracted to a great listener, so if she’s spilling all her secrets to you, she knows you’re great boyfriend material.

She Checks on You All The Time
If she calls and texts you throughout the day just to say hi and see how your day is going, she probably wants more (or she’s very needy). When woman consistently checks to see how you are doing, chances are she’s really into you. Sure, some friends are just really thoughtful like that. But everyone is very busy, so that kind of doting points in the direction of romance.

She’s affectionate
If she’s touchy-feely with you and you feel a certain spark, your gut instinct is probably on target. It goes without saying that, when someone is attracted to you, they feel the need to share physical contact. It’s a magnetic pull. If she is looking for more than friendship, she will give subtle or not-so-subtle hints to show that she wants more. These hints can range from touching, play-punching, dressing provocatively in your presence, and saying inappropriate things of a sexual nature. She’s not being a tease; she’s inviting you to take it a step further. Her body language will tell you everything.

She’s Jealous
Does she seem uncomfortable, even downright angry, when you talk about another girl or your current relationship? She’s probably smitten with you and can’t bear to hear about you and another girl. She doesn’t want you seeing anyone else because she wants you for herself instead. If you’re getting any kind of territorial vibe, you’re probably picking up that she wants a romantic relationship with you. Ultimately, her passion for you (disguised as jealously) is perhaps the most important sign that she wants to be more that friends.

She Makes A Move
This is a no-brainer. If she makes a move, that means that all else failed and you didn’t pick up on her previous, clue-dropping advances. It also can mean she’s a girl that knows exactly what she wants – you. When she no longer cares about anything and anyone except hooking up with you, she will start initiating the process by providing a clear sign you are the romantic partner she wants. Take the hint. She doesn’t want you to see her as a friend anymore. She wants to be your friend with benefits, as in the benefit of having her as your girlfriend.

With the launch of the newest edition to the olloclips arsenal, look for the all-new 4-in-1 Photo for the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus.

The pocket-sized 4-in-1 lens system for the iPhone 6 and 6 plus includes four advanced-optics and versatile lens options: fisheye, wide-angle, 10x Macro, and a 15x macro. The unique lenses also features a front- and rear-facing camera design along with a pendant that you can wear – a first for smartphone lenses.
