A Reminder

A Reminder

My wife likes to call me “Kirk.” Not because it’s some weird role-playing thing that she’s into. It’s because I’m slowly turning into my father. In case you haven’t picked up on it, his name is Kirk. I’m not mad that she says that. My dad has always been my biggest hero. However, sometimes I […]

The Comeback.

The Comeback.

The city of Cleveland, Ohio, now has another chapter to etch in their long history of sports lore. Although this time, they won’t be the footnote in someone else’s great story, the Washington Generals to someone else’s team, the other team on the Michael Jordan poster, the… well, you get the idea. I’ve been married […]

The Right to Bear Life

The Right to Bear Life

This past Sunday morning, like pretty much everyone, I woke up to the horrific news about a mass shooting at a gay night club in Orlando. This, coupled with the murder of The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie the previous night, made for a horrific weekend for the city of Orlando. It also sparked tons of […]

It Could Happen to You

It Could Happen to You

Last week, the internet was taken by storm by a story about a gorilla, Harambe, being killed because a toddler fell into its exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo. As most people do, you have most likely formed your own opinion about the situation and how it should have been handled. My initial reaction was like […]

No More Teachers, No More Books…

No More Teachers, No More Books…

My kids are enjoying their first week out of school for the summer and, surprisingly, I haven’t wanted to strangle them yet. Emphasis on yet, because I know it’s coming. Y’see, No. 3 is at the beach with her bestie. Which means No.s 2 and 4 have the run of the house. I’ve discovered that […]

To the Graduating Class of 2016

To the Graduating Class of 2016

I have always wanted to give a commencement speech, but I think they only invite people who have accomplished great things to do those. Being as I have pretty much missed that boat, I figured I could use my space here to offer my words of ineptness to this year’s graduates. While reading this, I […]

Almost Had It, But Not Really

Almost Had It, But Not Really

Every season it’s the same old thing. My team gets me just close enough to a championship that I get my hopes up and then they rip my heart completely out of my chest, throw it on the ground, stomp on it, spit on it, pour some salt on it, scoop it up, put it […]

T.G.I.M.

T.G.I.M.

I have this friend who is one of those obnoxious morning people. Dude just wakes up in a better mood than most people have all day. Whenever he would stay with us, he would purposely get in my face with his obnoxious good-mood-having self in the mornings because he knows that I am his polar […]

Vote for Kris

Vote for Kris

Saturday afternoon I was getting in the shower. I pick up my phone to turn on my PM Dawn Pandora station and notice a Facebook notification. I was tagged in a post, so I check it out. The post was congratulating all the Lokal Loudness award winners. I knew I was nominated, but never did […]

Masters Hangover

Masters Hangover

Saturday, I received that text that most people who don’t abandon Augusta during Masters Week hope to get. A friend had a couple extra tickets to the tournament and asked if the wife and I would like to go. There’s really no question here. Like most people, we jumped at the chance. I’m not really […]
