Steel! Pitiless, indestructible, unbending - has any other alloy
exerted such power over the human imagination? Conan the Barbarian
gutted half of the snake-worshippers in Hyboria in his quest for the
Riddle of Steel, while countless '80s housewives flexed their
neon-lycra tushes toward the elusive dream of Buns of Steel. When a
Soviet bureaucrat named Josef Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili needed a
really kick-ass code name, he didn't call himself Man of Brass. He
became Stalin, Man of Steel. And he couldn't even leap tall buildings
in a single bound.
So while the SteelSound 5H v2 gaming
headset may be mostly made of weaker stuff, we can't blame it for
appropriating some of steel's rigid mystique. It's designed for an
immersive sonic environment that we like to call a
"soundscapesperience", because we're dorks. Like the anti-terrorist
security cordon around London known as the Ring of Steel, or the
Pittsburgh Steelers' legendary Steel Curtain defense, the 5H v2 don't
take no mess when it comes to invasive background noise. Its improved
microphone approaches the exacting audio standards of nitpicky
jazz-rockers Steely Dan. (Any resemblance to the band's Burroughsian
namesake is purely coincidental.) And with the USB connection, you can use it as effortlessly as Grandmaster Flash rocked the wheels of steel.
"Pounding the world like a battering ram," sang Judas Priest on the 1980 album British Steel.
"Forging the furnace for the final grand slam." We have no idea what
they were on about, but we like to think they had the SteelSound 5H v2 USB Gaming Headset in mind. Won't you let it forge the furnace for your final grand slam?

Ol�! Even the most valiant, stylish bullfighters have real hearts under their elaborately embroidered jackets. And though they may master the art of dancing with el toro, the mystery of woman may yet elude them. It's not easy to find the right lady, especially when you get off work reeking of dung and blood. At least they get more respect than gator wrestlers.
This shirt was designed by: <a href="http://www.travisgentry.com">Travis Gentry</a>, the Tiger Jordan of Woot's weekly Photoshop contest, and the Lead Character Designer at a computer game company in the Seattle area. He did this design for his lovely and talented wife. Now that it's done, he can get back to creating ninjas and monkeys and, we hope, ninja monkeys.
Wear this shirt: to show the sensitive side of ritualized cattle torture.
Don't wear this shirt: when your bullfighter friend calls up and wants to go out for a drink because his girlfriend just dumped him.
This shirt tells the world: "Everything I know about bullfighting, I learned from Bugs Bunny cartoons."

It's the most exciting time of the year to be a baseball fan. Hearts
rise and fall with every pitch. Moments of high drama and low comedy
reveal new heroes and immortal goats. And the repugnant,
loathsome Chicago Cubs made a quick exit from the postseason, to the relief of an
You beer fans out there might think
baseball and wine don't mix, but don't tell that to Matt Donati. He
played college ball at the University of San Francisco (go Dons!) and
coached high school for a couple of years before he traded the ballyard
for the vineyard. Just like when the two Griffeys patrolled the same
Seattle outfield, Matt joined his dad Ron to develop Donati Family
Vineyard in the Paicines AVA in California's Central Coast region.
a recent expansion-team addition to the California Wine League, the
Donatis knew they had to land a big-name superstar to propel them to
the top of the standings. These would-be Steinbrenners found their
A-Rod in winemaker Dan Kleck, whose widely-known reputation and talent
brought instant credibility to the winery. And they've given him
nothing but estate-grown fruit to work with.
So the team
looked good on paper. But nobody drinks paper. The proof is in these
three bottles, a Murderer's Row of Paicines reds that could fit into
the heart of any drinking order.
The 2003 Donati Family
Vineyard Meritage is a classic four-tool player, bringing Cabernet
Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec to the table. Both
powerful and supple, its complex character allows for the truest
expression of each of its four fruits, along with notes of vanilla,
smoke, and spice from its tight-grained oak cooperage. Is it too early
to make room for its plaque in the Hall of Fame?
baseball, winemaking is a game of inches. The 2003 Donati Family
Cabernet Sauvignon pays attention to the little things that add up to
big victories: full ripening of tannins in the vineyard, thin-stave oak
barrels, exacting concentration of flavor and color. When you need
somebody to hit a ground ball to the right side to move the runner
over, this Cab is your guy. But it can also pull off the spectacular
plays that make the highlight reel, with a lush mouthfeel and warm
toast and vanilla accents just as thrilling as anything you'll see on SportsCenter tonight.
teams are always strong up the middle, with a solid Merlot a necessity
in the lineup. The 2004 Donati Family Merlot is muscular enough to hit
cleanup and versatile enough to play anywhere in the field. Richly
flavored but mellow and balanced, it always hits well against roast
duck, leg of lamb, or red pasta.
Whoever hoists that
many-flagged golden trophy a few weeks from now, baseball fans will
have enjoyed an awful lot of top-flight baseball. And the smartest fans
will have enjoyed a bottle or three of these Donati Family Vineyards
