We heard he also made an appearance to sign bottles of his vodka brand at a North side liquor outlet on Saturday.

We went to see Rich Cimini not because he has some great stories about Bill Parcels, Rex Ryan and Jim Boheheim; not because he’s covered 24 Super Bowls and over 400 NFL games, but we went to say thank you. Cimini pulled us in on a story he was doing back in the day about Laveranues Coles and Steve Yarnell. You can see the photograph we shot for the piece here.
Cimini’s gesture helped us tremendously that year. Thanks Rich.
Also kudos to Professor John Nicholson, from the Newhouse Sports Media Center, who each year puts together a great roster of sports reporters to visit Syracuse and talk about their craft.
Last night we had the pleasure of meeting designer Patrise, who moved to Syracuse from Washington, DC. She showed a portion of her Dresscode202 collection for Day 2 of Syracuse Fashion Week, which was held at the Redhouse.
We used to think Kevin Hart was this generation’s king of comedy, but after hearing him on Sway in the Morning last month, he just may be the best CEO/Mogul who makes people laugh for a living. Check him out as he talks about increasing brand relevance and demonstrates how to deal with haters (warning: mature content).
Hart will bring his stand-up tour What Now to Syracuse in August. His live special will be taped at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia later that month.
Shout out to the guys at Lombardi’s Imports on Butternut, one of our favorite small food shops, for helping us pick out a gift that told a good story.
April Fools may be for amateurs, but Jenny Yang is a top flight pro when it comes to the comedy game. She visited Syracuse and put on a hilarious show that touched on topics such as “Fear of Dating White Guys,” “Yellow Fever,” “Decor/Asians,” Real Babies v. Food Babies” and her left swipe tendencies on Tinder. Yang is currently on the road producing the Dis/Orient/ed Tour, and she was featured in the 2013 documentary Why We Laugh: Funny Women. To us the only down side of her show was that it conflicted with an appearance on campus by Taraji P. Henson.
We hope Yang will return to do a few nights at the Funny Bone when her tour returns to the East Coast.
