A Leap Of Faith

November 6, 2017

Remember this: all of life is a risk. There is a common discussion around sports surrounding the art of decision making during competition. I call it an art, but really it’s a process. And as a fan, or even a competitor or coach, it’s easy to second guess that process once the decision has been […]

Spooky Good Looks

October 30, 2017

Halloween is this week and parents are scrambling to find politically correct, non-offensive, eco-friendly, culturally sensitive (but not culturally appropriating) costumes for their children to wear. It’s a tough call and I’m grateful that I’m past that stage in life. I mean, I still dress up, but my child has long since outgrown the tradition. […]

College Football Is A Chore

October 23, 2017

Most people hate chores with a passion, but sometimes having chores is a saving grace when other enthusiasms in life begin to fail. Midway through the college football season, there are a lot of fans turning to those chores as a distraction from their team’s now unreachable preseason expectations. But who wants to do work […]

Failing On The Pitch

October 16, 2017

Here we are in the middle of October, knee deep in the sweet spot of sports. Multiple leagues are playing and a couple are about to tip off (literally): Major League Baseball, professional and college football, the NHL, and even golf and NASCAR are still going. So naturally I want to talk about soccer. This […]

Funny Sports

October 9, 2017

Beer And Basketball

October 2, 2017

Well, it’s been quite at week for college basketball and shoe companies, hasn’t it? I certainly don’t claim to be an expert on all that’s happened or continues to happen as this story unfolds, but it certainly doesn’t look good. I know… innocent until proven guilty. I get it. The legal system will play this […]

Paint And Second Chances

September 25, 2017

I am so lucky that cellphones with cameras didn’t exist thirty years ago. Neither did Facebook or Instagram. I dodged a technological bullet. Because brothers and sisters I am here to tell you, I did some really, really stupid stuff. I mean next level lunacy. Just flat out dumb. And guess what? So did you. […]

Reality Sets In Weekend

September 18, 2017

Week number three is in the books for the 2017 college football season, and that means it’s time for teams, coaches, and administrators to cinch up their collective belts and take a good, long, hard look in the mirror. We are now a quarter of the way through the season. All of the naive dreams […]

Routine Football

September 11, 2017

I’m a creature of habit. Some people call it being in a rut, I call it consistency. I eat the same thing for lunch every day, I have my 2 cups of coffee every morning. I do my weekly grocery shopping on the same day every week. Likewise, my weekly laundry, meal prep and  aforementioned […]

Ten Million Watt

September 4, 2017

Fredric. Opal. Andrew. Ivan. Hugo. Erin. Katrina. Harvey. Such normal sounding names. So nonthreatening. And yet each represents hundreds of lives lost and millions of people affected. Untold billions of dollars and decades to recover. That’s what those names represent. The world of sports was not immune from the battering the gulf region of Texas […]
