    Sharks face Firebirds for 2017 home opener




    JACKSONVILLE –  The (1-0)  Jacksonville Sharks return from their road victory against the Columbus Lions and now set their sights on their home opener against (0-1) Georgia Firebirds at the Shark Tank on Saturday, March 25 at 7:00 p.m. for Superheroes & Villians Night. This is the second matchup between the two teams, having previously faced off in a preseason showdown where the Sharks defeated the Firebirds 39-24 before finalizing their roster for the 2017 season.

     

    On offense, fullback Derrick Ross set the stage for his upcoming season, scoring three touchdowns and rushing for 50 yards in his National Arena League debut. The Sharks will rely on more than just their run game to clinch their first home victory this year as quarterback Tommy Grady will be expected to have another big night following his season debut in Columbus, where Grady threw three touchdowns and passed for 182 yards without allowing a single interception. On defense, the Sharks secondary tore apart the lions passing game, forcing four interceptions including a pick-six by defensive back Marvin Ross and another pick-six by linebacker Charlie Hunt during a Lions two-point conversion. The Sharks face a pass heavy Firebirds team that fell into t...   [Read More]

    The Jaguars plan to hire interim head coach Doug Marrone




    The Jaguars are planning to hire interim head coach Doug Marrone as the team’s permanent coach, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

    Marrone, 52, joined the Jaguars in 2014 as assistant head coach and offensive line coach after two seasons as the head coach of the Bills. Marrone went 9–7 in his final season in Buffalo before taking advantage of a clause in his contract that allowed him leave the team and still to collect his full 2015 salary while working for another team. 

    The Jaguars fired head coach Gus Bradley with two games left this year after four seasons in charge. Marrone was then installed as the interim head coach. 

    Marrone’s first head coaching job came with Syracuse, his alma mater, in 2009. He stayed with the Orange until 2012, compiling a 25–25 record. 

    The Jaguars also reportedly interviewed Tom Coughlin, Harold Goodwin, Mike Smith, Kyle Shanahan and Josh McDaniels.

    Jags Head Coach Released From Duty




     

    Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is released after loss against the Texans today and the team released the following statement:

     

    I thanked Gus Bradley today for his commitment to the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past four seasons.  As anyone close to our team knows, Gus gave his staff and players literally everything he had.  Our players competed for Gus and I know they have great respect for him, as do I. 

    Gus also represented the Jaguars, the Jacksonville community and the NFL in nothing less than a first-class manner as our head coach.  That counts for a lot.  It is unfortunately evident that we must make a change.  I thought it would be best to do it immediately after today’s result so Gus can step away, relax and regroup with his family during the Christmas and holiday season. 

    Dave Caldwell agreed and will now be charged with exploring all options to hire the best head coach possible to lead what I feel is an extremely talented team and reward a very loyal and patient fan base in Jacksonville.

    Superbowl Spirits




    Planning a Big Game Party and trying to figure out what to serve? Here's three cocktail recipes that will be a huge hit:

    Passing Game Punch

    Punch is perfect for a Super Bowl party (and its host), as it can be prepped in advance. Just be sure to add to the apple cider right before serving so it retains its refreshing effervescence.

    1 bottle Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey 6 cups apple cider 20-30 dashes Angostura Bitters 12-24 oz. chilled Hard Crisp Apple Cider 2 oranges Cinnamon, for rimming

    Peel one orange in twists to be used as a garnish for glasses, reserving orange. Mix together apple cider, rye and bitters in a large punch bowl (this can be done for up to a day or two before serving). Right before serving, add the hard cider and any additional bitters (to taste), then squeeze the peeled orange into the punch. Cut the other orange into wheels and add to bowl as a garnish. To serve, rim glasses with cinnamon, ladle punch over ice, and garnish with an orange twist.

    Bourbon Conversion

    This Boulevardier riff has a drizzle of brandied cherry juice for complex sweetness, and a float of hard cider to temper the ABV. Serving it over a sphere or large cube will keep the drink colder, l...   [Read More]

    Jacksonville Landing's Irish Pub




    An authentic Irish pub to settle down and have a good time is at Fionn MacCools. Located at the Jacksonville Landing under the Main Street Bridge, Fionn MacCool’s offers a family friendly Irish pub experience for everyone. I sat down with Patty Trousdell and she let me explore the history of Fionn MacCools.

    Owned by Amy McNulty; Patty’s sister, she travelled to Ireland several times and got to work with Guinness concept pubs. Amy always dreamed about having an Irish pub and wanted it to become a reality. All the materials for the restaurant were shipped from Ireland, and the restaurant opened at the beaches in 2005. The restaurant later moved to the Jacksonville Landing, opening in March of 2011, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Its current location has a community feel, with business influences, and is surrounded by great hotels.

    The executive chef of Fionn MacCools, John Walker, is the man that makes it all happen. He is a fabulous chef and makes everything in the kitchen from scratch. John started as a line cook for 4 years and worked his way up to become a sous chef. He handles high volume well on days like the Florida/ Georgia game, Tax Slayer Bowl, New Year’s Eve celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day,...   [Read More]

    Alligator Tries To Enter Walmart In Florida Monday Night




    Apopka, Fl - A 6 ft alligator hung out at the entrance of a Florida Wal-Mart Superstore Monday Night.

    Police were dispatched to the scene and barricaded the area. Shortly after, the gator quietly crawled off into the brush nearby. Shoppers claim they have seen the 6ft gator in the retention pond next to the store before.

    904 Happy Hour Website Gets Revamp




    Jacksonvilles favorite entertainment website got a facelift on Thursday, October 17th. Over the past month, lead designer Shawn Jasmin worked late nights to complete the technical & time consuming project. Shawn has a extensive background in webdesign but this website tested his skills. 

      

    The new website still features all of your old favorites like the where to go section where you can browse bars and venues to see their specials. The website will be undergoing updates through the coming weeks to all venues to display the most accurate specials. The new website will focus more on localized articles, info and events to keep everyone in the North Florida region up to date.

"The new website integrates everything we could think of that a user would want to know about a specific area or region. The new website also gives restaurants, concert halls and really any business looking to increase their market share and capital the availability to update their own profiles and share...   [Read More]
