Former MLB All-Star Cliff Floyd today was crowned Snapple’s “Flip for Flavor” champion in the first-ever Snapple All-Star Bottle Flip Challenge at GEICO All-Star FanFest. Snapple – the Official Tea and Juice Drink of Major League Baseball – added its own playful pop of fruit flavor to the worldwide bottle-flipping craze by pitting Floyd against Baseball Hall of Famer and 19-time MLB All-Star Cal Ripken Jr. in a fast-paced competition to determine the most accurate flipper. Floyd accurately hit all four fruit bases on the baseball field-inspired game board and was presented with a custom designed Peach Tea Snapple bottle trophy.
“There is nothing like bringing together love for baseball and summer with the accurate fruit flavor of Snapple,” said Brent Chism, Senior Director of Brand Marketing, Snapple. “We are thrilled to have added our own flavor to FanFest through our new partnership with Major League Baseball and remind everyone of their right to take a flavorful break while enjoying our national pastime. Having greats like Cal and Cliff bring so much energy to our activation made this a fun and memorable moment, and we look forward to what’s next.”

The Island of Bantayan in Northern Cebu in the Philippines watched their country’s boxing hero Manny Pacquiao fight against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. during a live public screening on the island, which brought boundless inspiration to many who were still recovering from the effects of Typhoon Haiyan which struck the Philippines in late 2013.
The public screening on the island was made possible with the effort of a large British life insurance company operating in the country in its bid to bring inspiration to the typhoon survivors. The screening was for the first time held simultaneously in Santa Fe, Bantayan and Madridejos municipalities on Bantayan Island.

The music video for the full version of "Juarez" off the debut EP, "Contents Under Pressure" by Mirage Box.
Mirage Box is a place where magic happens, where illusions seem real, where the oasis is lavish, inviting and tantalizing. It is where secrets are kept, truths are told, dreams come alive, and where imaginative music thrives.
Mirage Box's music has been described as "modern retro"; a celebration for the great songwriting and music production of the artist heyday of the late 60s and through the 70s. Mirage Box's music and writing style reflects the various flavors of pop and rock music of the classic rock era, from lush ballads to psychedelic trippyness, high-energy rock to playful punk, Chicago soul, Prog Rock, a dash of metal and liberal vocal harmonies. Mirage Box's music production employs many of the classic sounds and instruments of the by-gone era, but with a modern slant. Mirage Box aims to create soundscapes, painting scenes with music that takes listeners on journeys. Fans of album rock and headphone audiophiles will appreciate Mirage Box's compositions.
Mirage Box is a creative collaboration between Nick Coppola, a prolific songwriter and lyricist, and Chris Capozza, a multi-instrumentalist audio engineer and music producer. Mirage Box seeks to be indefinable to one genre of music. Influenced by The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Yes, Kansas, Genesis, Dream Theater, CS&N, The Who, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Sex Pistols, Chicago, Styx, Asia, Jim Croce, Jimmy Buffet, Soundgarden, Boston and Steely Dan, writers Nick and Chris combine various styles as the vehicles of their original music, often employing Mellotrons, MiniMoogs, B3s and Leslies, Taurus Pedals, doublenecks, Rickenbackers, Hofners, Les Pauls, Telecasters as well as orchestral and brass sections to create epic music, brimming with melodies, countermelodies, cannons, counterpoints and lush vocal harmonies. There is something for everyone in Mirage Box’s music, and always new elements to be discovered.
So put on the headphones, turn down the lights, sit back, relax and join us on a musical journey as we present the contents in the Mirage Box.
