re: Its crazy how World class entertainers like Neymar can become helpless.... - RedPop4
I don't know, many here often assert that sports are entertainment, especially with the questionable goings-on in the NFL and NBA, and world football. Remember that quote from the NFL lawyer, someone here quoted it a couple weeks ago, that the NFL is an entertainment product....

re: Let's talk Cigars - RedPop4
I have a Xikar multi-tool that works pretty well, and they are a fine company. However Xikar used to fix their cutters, sharpen their cutters and what have you, when they were first introduced. Now they just replace whatever you send in. There's a reason they HAVE to have such good customer service...

re: Let's talk Cigars - RedPop4
How good is your guillotine cutter? If it's a little plastic promotional sort of thing, with a single blade, get another. If it's a worthwhile cutter that you spent coin on, clean it really well and try again. If it's a Xikar, send it back and they should replace it....

Son, that is an excellent review. Very well done. If you were comparing it to the Cuban Punch you had, that may be a little unfair to this Punch. But then again, you were quite detailed and adept in this review....

re: OT Baller topic of the week: Cigars - RedPop4
You don't have to buy a humidor. I have a few, they are good to have, certainly, but a "Tupperdor" or "Coolerdor" work fine, too. Just keep your eye on them for the first few weeks or so that you use them. I had two coolers, smallish, for a good while, I'm consolidated into one for cigars and one fo...

re: OT Baller topic of the week: Cigars - RedPop4
These guys here are smoking premium and super premium brands that command similar prices. The quest is to find the same quality at a better price that allows one to smoke a bit more. I've been living as caregiver to my living parent, I am away from home and my family, lonely and aggravated a bit....

J. C. Newman has diversified their offerings some in the last 15 or so years as many American smokers are now looking for the full-bodied, Nicaraguan flavor profile. Go to their website and check their brands. Diamond Crown, Cuesta-Rey (their flagship brand,) and La Unica are typically on the mil...
