OuijaBoard What: Ouija 7-Eleven!

Where: 529 N Charles Street

When: Whenever…

So lets a get a little spooky and wacky here (since it is Wednesday) and lets talk about Ouija Boards. Ya, those really creepy boards featured in movies like Paranormal Activity. Well, our dear Baltimore is said to be the place where these famous Ouija Boards came to be! If you have lived in Baltimore for years and didn’t know this or you’re a tourist this should be of great interest to you! The wackiest thing of all is that this place used to be a hotel providing rooms and is now a 7-Eleven serving hot dogs. Don’t believe it? Well this 7-Eleven holds the plaque to prove that the Ouija Board started in that exact spot… Many years ago in the year 1890. So for fans, tourists, or residents this is the place to stop by, get a chocolate bar and a picture with the famous plaque on your Wacky Wednesday!

February 1st, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

The 50th edition of the world’s most popular sporting event will take place in Santa Clara, California at Levi’s Stadium on February 7th. The game will feature two teams with completely different identities.

The Carolina Panthers had the best record in the NFL this season going 17-1, earning the #1 seed in the NFC. They led the NFL in total points thanks to former Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton. Many people counted the Panthers out of playoff contention when Newton’s number one target, Kelvin Benjamin, went down with a knee injury before the season started. However, that injury did not deter the Panthers at all. Newton responded with an MVP caliber season and Carolina’s second appearance in the Super Bowl in team history.
