Michael Floyd Gets DUI in Scottsdale, Dropped by Arizona Cardinals, and Picked up by Patriots

Michael Floyd, former Notre Dame Wide Receiver (where he also had alcohol and DUI issues) and a star first round draft pick of the Arizona Cardinals recently got a DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona after losing on the road to the Miami Dolphins where that sealed their fate at that playoffs and hopes for a 2017 Super Bowl. A police officer was behind him at a light on Camelback and Goldwater and found Michael Floyd asleep at the wheel with his foot on the brake.

After getting his DUI in Scottsdale, AZ, Bruce Arians had a press conference and shortly after the Arizona Cardinals got rid of Michael Floyd with Michael Bidwill saying he had no remorse and didn’t like how he handled it.

With Michael Floyd in his 4th year and close to a break out will the Arizona Cardinals regret their decision down the line with the New England Patriots picking him off waivers?

Michael Floyd really hasn’t been great so far but we have a feeling this was due to the system and horrible Quarterback situation the Arizona Cardinals have with Carson Palmer who has been an interception machine as of late and with a predictable offense going to David Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald every down.

Also, next year might a be a great year to pick up Michael Floyd in Fantasy Football because with a quarterback like Tom Brady and genius coaching staff at the New England Patriots who seem to pick up players that get in trouble at the right time (LeGarrette Blount) it could be a break out year for Michael Floyd.

With Michael getting let go like this, and still being young since Floyd’s age being 27 (was born November, 27th, 1989) we feel like Michael Floyd’s stats are about to blow up next year if not this year when New England Patriots make another Super Bowl run.

I have a funny feeling this set back for Micheal Floyd is going to turn into a wake up call and opportunity for his career and help the New England Patriots.

Frankie Muniz Lists Biltmore Area Secret Home for $3.5 Million!!

According to Realtor.com

“Malcolm in the Middle” star Frankie Muniz is selling his 1930s-era mansion in Phoenix, according to the Phoenix Business Journal. The four-bedroom estate is on the market for $3.5 million.

The posh property, known as Il Segreto (“The Secret”), features luxe landscaping and water features that’ll make you forget that you’re in the middle of the desert.

If you’re looking for a tranquil getaway in the desert—and aren’t  afraid of the water bill that likely comes with maintaining a property like this—you should investigate this stunning home.

As for Muniz, he previously bought and sold a more modern mansion in the area a few years ago, and now the actor-turned-race car driver looks like he’s ready for another change of pace.

The architecture of Il Segreto is bungalow-inspired, even if it’s actually far larger than a typical bungalow. The original and restored finishes blend seamlessly together to create a unified aesthetic. The best example of this is in the kitchen, which combines modern appliances with quaint touches like a wrought-iron chandelier, a rustic island, and a tile backsplash.

However, Il Segreto’s true charm lies outside. The property features fountains, pools, and gorgeous gardens. To take advantage of the garden views, the home features floor-to-ceiling windows in the main house and guest houses on the property.

Outside there’s also a bocce court, fireplace, and kitchen and dining area.

Perhaps the home’s real secret is how it maintains its lush elegance in the middle of the desert. We’ll never tell.

Craigslist Phoenix #1 Most Visited Site in Arizona

According to Amazon’s Alexa.com company Craigslist Phoenix is the #1 most visited website in the state of Arizona just edging out AZ Central.

If you think about that for a second it’s actually pretty amazing that a site that has never changed their web design and is a simple basic list started by Craig Newmark out of San Francisco is really visited and trafficked that much.

Craig Newmark started Craigslist by just sharing a list of items for sale with a small email list of friends and turned it into an online classifieds beast really taking out the classifieds newspaper business city by city.

On Craigslist in Phoenix as in many cities every post is free other than the job listings and people can use it to connect with the Phoenix, AZ communities and the cities within it by learning about job openings, items for sale, events, gigs and more.

It’s also very powerful for people or businesses wanting to sell their products, items, or services. We know of skilled licensed contractors that post their service in the relevant categories that get them an extra 20-30 calls or leads per month conservatively.

There is a FREE resume search as well under the Phoenix Craigslist job posting categories where you can search for people available to fill any of you local jobs.

Another great category of Craigslist Phoenix is the office / commercial category. This is where you can post an office space you have for rent or find office space in Phoenix that meets your needs without needing to work with a commercial broker. You can contact the person or company posting the office space directly and sort by map location or search parameters you choose.

Lastly, there are forums for different interests and personal for dating in Arizona. And if you are in Tucson, Prescott, Flagstaff or other outskirt areas of Phoenix, you can sort by your closer local Craigslist. Like Craigslist Tucson or Craigslist Prescott as examples.

If you want to learn more about Craigslist and it’s founder this a great book to check out and learn how they grew their site.
