If you’re of a certain age, the steroid era of baseball was your childhood. It was a time of massive home runs and captivating record chases. It was a time before the term “performance enhancing drug” slipped into the mainstream. Icarus, a new documentary that premieres on Netflix today, is a look at the rampant use of steroids in sports. How many people turned a blind eye? How many big names helped foster it? From Lance Armstrong to a plethora of Olympic athletes, Icarus shows you just how prevalent juiced athletes were. Add it to your documentaries to watch list.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
