By theSharpeUser | July 16, 2016 | (No) | 1539
On August 20th at Ufc 202 Conor McGregor will get a shot at redemption against the man who took his unbeaten record. Nate Diaz, who came in as a late replacement for Rafael Dos Anjos stunned the Ufc world by beating McGregor when the two last met. And as the two prepare to meet again many are wondering whether this revenge mission is a smart decision from McGregor’s point of view. The fact that the fight is at 170lbs again makes it all the more difficult for McGregor and only time will tell if..

With the Crimbo meat sweats nothing more than a distant, delicious memory; it’s about time you got your, seasonally plump, ass back into the gym! With every kind of fitness regime available, from the usual 45 minute hapless stroll around the gym, to a rigorous, vomit inducing Crossfit session, it’s so common to let mistakes and faux pas slip into your workout routine. Here are a few that you must try to avoid at all costs: Poor Form First things first, make sure that you’re doing ..

Know When You Need to Get Away From the Needy Relationship

By theSharpeUser | July 14, 2016 | (No) | 364
Remember that time your best friend got that insane girlfriend that he couldn’t be without if they were both off work/school/college? Remember how you felt about the fact that he was a complete non-entity in your life now and that he was a write off every time someone decided to plan a lad’s trip or night out? Of course you remember it, it’s like losing a limb. But there are a few easy ways to know when you’ve fallen into the same trap. One that can be almost impossible to escape from; t..

Will 2016 See The End Of The Beard?

By theSharpeUser | July 13, 2016 | (No) | 3229
As a 30 year old “man” who can’t yet grow a proper beard; this is admittedly a touchy subject for me. And the fact that beards have been an ongoing trend for a few years now has meant it hasn’t been an easy time for me. Seeing people strut around with beards that frankly they do not deserve makes me sad and angry at the same time. A distinguished beard is something that everyone wants at some time in their lives, well every man anyway, so the fact that it has so far eluded me is both unf..

New jobs, we’ve all been there. It can be a daunting experience going into a new environment whether it’s a simple part time job to make a bit of money on your days off school or the big day you enter the real world of employment after finishing college. Here a few tips on what you should avoid doing in the first few days: Being Shy In the first few days of your new job, you have to avoid being reclusive.

O’Sheas Merchant Hotel Review

By theSharpeUser | July 11, 2016 | (No) | 513
Hotel reviews are 100% circumstantial. If you’re a businessman or an elderly couple away on a trip for work or just peace and quiet, you’ll want a completely professional environment with serenity and maybe a nice view. However, if you’re a 21 year old Journalism and New Media student coming from Clare to Dublin to go to a messy concert in Phoenix Park, you’re not all that bothered about the atmosphere around the place when you arrive back at half one in the morning covered in mud and sm..

Male Grooming In The Modern World

By theSharpeUser | July 10, 2016 | (No) | 486
Looking good has taken a whole new twist for the boys. Out with the rugged and scraggly look that used to be the way to a girl’s heart or even just a girl’s bed and in with the manicured, pedicured, waxed, bronzed, gelled and flawless look that is now expected. Starting at the very top, the old school mop of hair is a thing of the past. Now, the very least expected is some form of ‘faded’ hairstyle absolutely coated in some kind of wax, gel or mousse. It must be to perfection quite liter..

How To Get A Great Night’s Sleep

By theSharpeUser | July 10, 2016 | (No) | 512
As someone who is a bit of a night owl this is not a topic I usually give too much thought to. However even I must admit that there are times when a great night’s sleep is a must. There is just something nice about knowing that you can curl up like you did when you were a child and head cosily to the land of nod. There are often times though when the stresses of life mean relaxing and going to sleep are easier said than done. In this article I look at ways that you can leave the stresses of li..

World Cup Qualifier – The Irish Team Kick Off

By theSharpeUser | July 10, 2016 | (No) | 509
It seems like we are always willing to accept a day out. ‘Ah sure, we gave it a lash’ is an all too common attitude in Irish sport. The Euro 2016 journey wasn’t a bad one but it wasn’t a great one. So we beat the Italians on an amazing night to qualify for the last 16 but then got beaten by a superior French team. A French team that could have been avoided had we merely beaten the Swedes in the first game when we were the dominant force. Oh well, we’ll move on and next is the World Cup..
