MANKIND UNPLUGGED | Guy Stuff. Girl's View. Men's Lifestyle. Mon, 27 Apr 2015 19:24:16 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Interview: Quinten Rollins’ Journey To The NFL Draft and To Defy The Doubt Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:42:48 +0000 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 and see kind of a highlight of what Speed Stick and I put together. It’s a good piece.

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 Balance Fri, 24 Apr 2015 23:22:43 +0000 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 Retail $99.99

Lip Sync Battle: Terry Crews vs. Mike Tyson Fri, 24 Apr 2015 06:32:21 +0000 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 Watch Thu, 23 Apr 2015 02:32:36 +0000 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.

5 Signs She Wants To Be More Than Friends Mon, 06 Apr 2015 09:55:28 +0000 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.

Unofish Master-Crafted Backpacks, Basketballs, and Snapbacks Thu, 02 Apr 2015 21:57:19 +0000 Unofish Crimson Bag Basketball

Every man should own something that has been masterfully crafted. Regardless of your style, a fashionable, well-crafted backpack can enhance your streetwear game and add a bit of flavor to your business casual look. Since man-cessories are all the rage right now, you can pack a punch of style while you easily carry all your essentials. Let’s face it, all of us (men included) can use some extra space thanks to that new smartphone stretching out your pockets.

The inaugural collection of Unofish bags adds just the right amount of flair for the rugged and refined guy. Meticulously crafted, the Unofish bags are masterfully handcrafted with the modern man in mind. Their signature, vintage-inspired look is a nod to heritage, style, masculinity, and durability. The great-looking bag is sure to turn heads because the bros will want one and the chicks will know good fashion sense when they see it. Backpacks no longer signify that it’s time to go back to school. Instead, they’re now the bag of choice for many business professionals commuting to work and hobbyists heading out for a hike or a music festival. With the Unofish collection, you can shoulder something that’s fashionable and functional.

Unofish offers a selection of limited edition bags. Each bag is restricted to a run of 50 to 100 units, so you won’t see yourself coming and going. While all the bags are worthy enough to wear, our two favorites are the State Bag and Recondo Bag.

The State Bag – $499
Unofish State Bag

In crafting The State backpack, Unofish paired yellow ponyhair leather with a classic, royal blue tumbled leather imported from Italy. Versatile with ample storage, the bag has three zippered external compartments and one inside, along with a 15” padded laptop pocket.

Recondo Bag – $499
Unofish Recondo Bag

The Recondo bag is for the man who likes to stand out. Combined with Italian olive tumbled leather and camouflage ponyhair leather, this bag is finished with a black glove leather- back padding for ultimate comfort.

Along with the debut of their backbacks, Unofish brings together rugged elegance and scrupulous leather craftsman with the reveal of their hats and luxury basketballs. The basketballs are handcrafted and manufactured from the finest unique leathers including python, ostrich, and alligator. Although these basketballs are technically ready to dribble down the court, who would actually think of dunking these treated, dyed, and embossed balls? Unlike their basketballs, which are really designed for display only, their snapback hats are ready-to-wear and stylishly sport the official Unofish logo or the words “Closers.”

Unofish Closers Snapback

For every product sold, Unofish donates a premium composite basketball to a child in the community. Unofish works with after- school programs and community organizations to give a ball to a child in need.
