Wolfman is taking a bite into Charlotte

Restaurant Review 3-15-17- Wolfman Pizza, Charlotte, NC

Often when people think of pizza a few places come to mind.  With thoughts of Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Cici’s, and Little Caesar’s pizza, do not forget about the little people.  Wolfman Pizza is located of Randolph and Sharon Amity road in a shopping plaza full of Marshal’s, Harris Teeter, and an up and coming Publix.  When you find Wolfman’s Pizza tucked away next to a GNC store and above the Bruegger’s Bagels, nutrition will be the last thing on your mind as you smell the fresh dough cooking.  As I entered the Wolf’s Den I felt that I was at a small pizza bar somewhere that no one had ever heard of.  On the wall was plastered pictures of the original “Wolf Man” Lon Chaney and other mutts to grace the silver screen with the name of Wolf Man.  The menu was unique with a timeless feel it was printed like a newsletter.  This would seem complicated to most people because it was difficult to locate the specials but, I digress.

I ordered my pizza and because I like burgers I ordered the Cheeseburger Cheeseburger pizza which was full of beef, bacon, mustard, Roma tomatoes, and mushrooms.  The 10 inch pizza was not enough as I looked at the menu again and I wanted to try everything.  I need dessert I though and I ordered the small S more’s pizza.  This pizza came out hot and of course I could not resist and burnt my tongue for good measure.   However, the wonderful flavors of graham crackers, chocolate chips, and marshmallows melted in my mouth and brought me back to campfires by the river with my friends and family.

Wolfman’s Pizza does seem like a bad name for a pizza however, you will be surprised.  I was lucky to get out of this pizza place alive.  Hopefully tonight I will not turn into a Wolf Man because this pizza place was not only good… but it will leave a mark on me that was delicious.

Professionalism in NASCAR’s Wild West

NASCAR-Wild West (Las Vegas Race March 2017 Analysis)

NASCAR has always been a part of my life.  Since I was born in 1985 the name Dale Earnhardt was synonymous in my house.  The houses where I lived were decorated with the Black and Red of Dale Earnhardt everywhere.  Sunday’s were often race days in these houses and we were never to leave the house until we watched NASCAR.

Now, fast forward 20 years and I am sitting at my house with my wife and son watching NASCAR.  My son is to the point that he does not know what fighting is.  Myself and my wife watched as Kyle Busch walked up pit road to Joey Logano and attempted to punch him in the face.  I had worked in the NASCAR field and professionalism was always apart of your job.  NASCAR made a mistake when they did not punish these drivers.  In the professional world if you were fighting a co-worker you were either fired on the spot or suspended for two weeks.  I think that NASCAR needs to instill some “professionalism” that they preach on these drivers.  We are past this “boys have at it” mentality.  If you preach to your employees professionalism then it needs to be across the board not just whenever you feel like it is necessary for ratings.

Retirement? What will happen to NASCAR?

Hello Sambagz peeps,

Today I wanted to reflect.  For many years I was an Earnhardt fan.  Then sadly I went to the “dark side” and supported the young gun, Jeff Gordon.  Today’s hero’s are leaving in NASCAR.  Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle, have just been the latest drivers that have only added to the pain of NASCAR’s growing popularity.  NASCAR did announce that they partnered with MONSTER Energy in order to gain popularity with the young crowd.

I am happy for Jr because I was in the similar position when I worked for MRN Radio.  I was having a new baby that would require more time being at home rather than on the road.  I loved the travel and the comradery that comes with working in a fast paced sport.  Jr will always be a integral part of NASCAR not only because he is a team owner on the Xfinity series but his name is what keeps NASCAR alive.

With the addition of Dale Earnhardt Jr announcing that he is going to retire only adds to the NASCAR dilemma.  For years NASCAR’s ratings have been down and so have the crowds.  Who can take the reins and help NASCAR what is to become of the sport in the next 5, 10, or even 15 years.  Only time and people’s opinion will tell.
