Recently I was writing an article about the Danbury Hat Tricks hockey team and when I was finished I found myself distracted.
I wanted to write a cinematic-like quote in honor of the team. I started to think about my favorite sports movies, moments and speeches and had to stop and finish the project I was working on. I realized this was a completely separate article that I was starting to write, because there are so many good ones.

Our culture morphs and these changes mean that certain types of behavior have an expiration date. What you once thought was “cool” or “tough” can now make you look like a straight D-bag. The problem is, when our culture rotates, not everyone gets the memo.

What makes you a tough guy today? For starters, the term itself is a punch line, if someone calls you a “badass” they’re going after you. This list was supposed to be titled “Top Signs You’re A Raging Shower”, but my editor denied that, so these are the “Top Signs You’re a Real Tough”.
Amazing images and facts about I-95 (WRKI) and its broadcast tower
Mark Weiss is a retired broadcast engineer, avid I-95 listener, and drone enthusiast. Recently I posted an article on drone photography and Mark texted me and said, “It’s okay, you should see what I have.”
I asked him to share what he had and he sent me these awesome photos. He photographed the I-95 Broadcast Tower (WRKI) from above. Weiss took the photos in 2018. He sent them to me and attached a note that said, “Flown by DJI Phantom 4 Pro 2.0”.

These are amazing photos from our broadcast tour and some fun information about its history and the history of I-95.
