Guts-and-Glory-The-Golden-Age-of-American-Football

Instead of extolling the virtues of the game we all know and love as football, we’re going to take a few minutes to wax nostalgic about author Jim Murray and photographer Neil Leifer. Since the 50s, Leifer and Murray have dedicated themselves to immortalizing epic moments in sport through their words and images. Leifer captured that iconic shot of Muhammad Ali towering over Sonny Liston that will be burned into your brain for the rest of your life. Murray helped give birth to Sports Illustrated and won a Pulitzer for Commentary in 1990. Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978 is a collection of what Leifer considers to be his best images (the football ones, obviously), taken from over 10,000 rolls of film he’s shot, introduced by famous columns from Murray.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
