Florida East Coast Railway Christmas Train Is Coming To Town Saturday
Santa is coming to visit good boys and girls this week when Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway’s eighth annual Christmas Train comes to town on Saturday, December 9th.
The FEC Christmas Train is run in coordination with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation and travels from Jacksonville to Miami along FEC Railway’s 351-mile mainline track.
Along the way to Miami, Santa Claus will be spreading holiday cheer from the decorated, historic FEC passenger cars. US Marine Corps service members will be at each stop along the route to greet Santa and his FEC elves. Santa will de-board at each stop so children can tell him what they’d like for Christmas. It is a beloved tradition among FEC employees, their families, customers, suppliers and the communities in which they serve.
Jim Hertwig, FEC President and CEO. Stated “We are proud to be able to once again work alongside the Marine Corps and the Toys for Tots Foundation to contribute to those in need during the holiday season," "Since we started the program seven years ago, we have donated close to 300,000 toys for distribution throughout the community, and it only continues to grow.”
The FEC Christmas Train is a 501c3, s... [Read More]
Jags Make It Three In A Row At The Bank
The Jacksonville Jaguars dominated the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 30-10. Blake Bortles led the Jacksonville offense with over 300 passing yards and 2 TDs in the air. BB5 performance helped to overcome a sluggish Jaguars running game in which the Colts out-rushed the Jags 141-96 yards. However, like most of the Jags wins this season, the Defense put together an elite performance.
Calais Campbell's first quarter sack earned him the Jaguars franchise single season sack record. Jalen Ramsey's (the King of Duval) interception to close out the second half stifled a drive where the Colts could have scored some quick points. Tashuan Gipson earned a second half interception that also stifled another Colts drive in Jaguars' territory. The Defense had problems with the Colts running game and some middle of the field passes, showing that Telvin Smith's absence might be a problem if it is a long term deal.
Regardless, let's make this clear: Your Jacksonville Jaguars have won eight games this season. Yesterday's win guaranteed that the Jaguars will not have a losing season for the first time since 2010. Think about this: Did any of us truly believe this team would even win 6 games th... [Read More]
The Navy Football Team Will Be Wearing Blue Angels Inspired Uniforms In It's Game With Army
The Navy football team will be wearing Blue Angels-inspired uniforms for the 2017 Army-Navy game on Dec. 9 in Philadelphia. It will be the 118th Army-Navy Game!
The uniform includes hand-painted helmets depicting six F/A-18 Hornets in delta formation, as well as a chrome face mask to mimic the visors worn by Blue Angel pilots.
“Although the uniform departs from our customary characteristics, this tribute to the Blue Angels reflects the enthusiastic pride and appreciation we have for the Navy’s premier flying team and the motivation they convey to Navy football and the fleet at large,” Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk said in a Navy release. “The masterminds at Under Armour are always thinking of ways to inspire our troops while still reflecting a deep appreciation for a Naval history that is so ingrained in our game day traditions. Annually, a special Navy uniform has become a statement in this game and brings with it appreciated meaning and a clear message that we are all in.”
Under Armour became the school’s official uniform supplier four years ago and every year, Under Armour has made a specialized uniform for the Navy game against Army.

Gentlemen Of The Road St. Augustine Stop Over Recap
St. Augustine FL - “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” was the biggest event that has happened this year and 904 Happy Hour went down to St Augustine’s Francis Field get the low down. I got to go down to Francis Field both days of the festival to check out the music and the crowd. From observing the number of attendees, it was said that there were at least 30,000 people that attended the festival. The line-up contained 12 bands for the two day festival. Mumford and Sons was the headliner for the festival and they performed a great show and gave the best performance their fans have ever seen. What also makes this a big event is that this was the final show for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover and St. Augustine was the last stop. This festival was very artsy and brought many attendees from Jacksonville to Tampa and some people from out of the state as well.
Day 1 went off smoothly and showcased Willy Mason, Thao and the Get Down and Stay Down, The Walkmen and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Each band gave a great performance and had their unique style. I categorized some of these bands as alternative, indie rock, or indie folk band. Each band performed a one hour set and I thought they all did a great job. When the night was over... [Read More]
