Best Of The Blast: July 12-18

By  |  0 Comments

Last week, scientists defined the different types of drunks, John Oliver discussed public financing for sports stadiums and we let the world know how we pronounce “Thames”.

There’s nothing like 25 people waiting outside of Nikolas Pizza at 1:30am on a Saturday night to let us know that summer in Newport is at a 12 (but we’d really prefer it at a 9). Oddly enough, pizza seeming to be a running theme of after hours, as we’d just seen a 50 year old guy get in a brawl on Thames over the stuff. We can’t wait to be that old so we can act that dumb.

Anyhow, here are our top 10 posts of last week…
