What’s up readers? Just like everyone else, I took a little winter sabbatical to gear up for a busy spring and summer. Lots of stuff has happened since we left off but that is in the past. The City beckons in the warmer months, get out and check out what it has to offer. Pittsburgh, [...]
Instead of writing three or four 2,000 words NBA Playoff posts like I did last year, I think what I’m going to do is post one (hopefully not quite 2,000 word) that includes the Reader’s Digest version of all of my thoughts. I’ll either post every Monday or at the end of every round. Or [...]
Last year, Jim and I had a running dialogue of our not-so-expert draft commentary. We talked football, pop culture, what we ate that night, and whatever else was on our mind. Unfortunately, I’m unaware if Jim will be able to participate tonight because he moved into a new place today and is too technologically-illiterate to [...]
Don’t worry. This isn’t a playoff preview. I contemplated writing one of those, but then I realized I’m no expert nor are “previews” on a blog not affiliated with ESPN or Sports Illustrated all that appealing. Instead, here is what I’m going to do: I’m going to rattle off my thoughts, opinions, and a few [...]
Despite being over a week into spring (according to the calendar, not Mother Nature), winter seems to be refusing to relinquish its icy grip on our collar, just like the ever-resilient John Cena when he locks an opponent in his signature “STF” (Stepover Toehold Facelock). However, despite winter’s submission hold on the shorts that I’m [...]
Best and Worst – Gym Sports The cornerstone of American primary and secondary education takes place not in the classroom—but inside the hallowed grounds of the school’s gym. From the Greek gymnasion, the gym is a place where young men retreat to physically educate their bodies. Here, I will briefly take you through my [...]
In light of President Obama’s terrible shooting performance on Easter Sunday, 0 for his first 17 and 2 – 22 overall, I got to thinking about the athletic ability of our US Presidents. Then I decided to create a full Offense/Defense of Presidents if I had to build a football team. This was harder than [...]
We are making our third comeback. I think this is three. Maybe it’s four. Anyway, we are back and I’m praying that this time with a little help from all of our contributors’ bosses, wives, and ambition, we have a little more staying power. Blundo really caught me off guard (in a good way) by [...]
I just thought of this after reading this tweet. Don’t worry, I know Anthony, he won’t be offended that I did this. In fact, in some weird way, I think he’s gonna like it. So, here’s the deal. You guys figure out a way to make me aware of some tweets that are B.S. [...]
Well… this is awkward. Haven’t seen any of you in a really long time and what do you know, I think I can just come waltzing back into your lives expecting you to read my thoughts again. Okay, okay, here is your apology – I’m sorry for being so lazy, I should have been there [...]
