Barack Obama eats at Canter’s Deli — hey I’ve eaten there too!

I discovered Canter’s a couple years ago after I had just moved to LA. I found a link to the best burger in LA and I went to the Golden State to have the burger. It was that good. But I saw across the street that there was this Jewish restaurant called Canter’s Deli. I went after my meal and saw they sold black & white cookies. I love those cookies. I ate them all the time when I lived in New York.

I’ve eaten at Canter’s a few times since. They serve Jewish food along with other classic foods like panini sandwiches, meatloaf, etc. I like it there. It’s a 24/7 joint and it satisfies my needs. Is it a great place? It’s average

But to deliver me food late at night, I can dig it. Now that the president has also eaten here, I can lay my lame claim to fame that I am famous too!

Jim Ross’ WWE Career Officially Ends Today

The greatest ever.

UPROXX

WLJimross

It’s time to shed a bitter tear for the WWE commentary situation, because today Jim Ross, the best commentator WWE has or ever will have, is officially done with the company.

WLjimross2

Jim Ross had a tumultuous relationship with WWE for years. The company thought he was too old and unphotogenic for TV, but they couldn’t find a replacement even a 10th as good as him, so he was brought back then sent home again more times than a person could count over the past five years.

The final blow came at the WWE 2K14 panel at last year’s Summerslam Axxess — Ric Flair was clearly drunk at the event, and Ross was blamed for not reining him in. Ironically Flair is once again a regular fixture on television, while Ross is still paying for the crime of not babysitting a 64-year-old man vigilantly enough. WWE everybody! By the…

How my trip back to the Bay Area was amazing

Even though #CREAM, #Love always wins.

A post shared by Sam (@smallflybox) on

As some of you know from my last post about the Bay, I really enjoyed my time there. I was working from the office, I was seeing all the cool things they had around the place. And most importantly, I was being important. And plus I took public transportation each time, which was nice.

They were asking me questions and my input. I was working and giving suggestions, throwing out solutions and all that jazz. I really feel comfortable knowing that I can spend my career doing this and knowing I am useful. I am appreciated.

Another great thing was that I got to hang out with friends. Seeing my old college buddies was great. I even got a chance to see a friend who happened to be working at Amazon nearby whom I haven’t seen in 10 years I think. It was really nice to just be back in the Bay and totally relaxed

As you can see above, that’s one of the cool things along the walls at Yahoo. And I think I will be back sooner than later.

How I won Chris Paul’s signed shoes on Twitter

I am a Chris Paul fan. Been a fan of his since his rookie year. I own a Paul jersey from his time with the Hornets. I also own his first line of Jordan shoes.

When he joined the Clippers, I was sad because he plays for my team’s rival. But I am still a fan.

Yesterday, as I was at work half-paying attention to my computer, I saw the above tweet. I didn’t know there was a contest going on. I was thinking that there might be something going on with a trivia question. I quickly went on Google and found the answer. I just submitted it and it happened to be the first correct response.

How my trip back to the Bay Area has been so far

#Yahoo knew I was coming and rolled out the purple carpet for me. #BayArea get ready, I'm back!!

A post shared by Sam (@smallflybox) on

I am so happy to be back in the Bay. Sure it’s mainly the South Bay, but I spent six years of my life here. It’s something. Plus, look at the welcome they gave me.

I had to fly out of LAX at 7:40am, which meant the shuttle that picked me up came at 4:30. Ooof. And what’s worse was when the shuttle pulled up, I walked out of my house and straight to the car door. The driver didn’t open it for me. I just stood there. Apparently he was standing next to the trunk waiting to see me leave my house. I entered the car by myself.

Then the driver walked to the front door and waited and even called my phone. He didn’t know I already entered. SMH.
