A Father’s Day Thought, A Few Weeks Late

A Father’s Day Thought, A Few Weeks Late

I’ve been going back and forth on whether I should write this article or not. On one hand, it’s a family matter and maybe should be kept that way. On the other hand, that’s what my column is all about: life. My life, specifically, and if just one person can identify with me or take […]

I’m a Wimp and My Kid is Too!

I’m a Wimp and My Kid is Too!

It takes a big man to admit this. Or, at least, I like to think it does: I’m a wimp. There. I said it. No, it does not feel better to get it off of my chest. If you’re one of my friends from school, this does not surprise you. I have never been a […]

Stories from Camp

Stories from Camp

I come to you with a report from Matt Ryan Pro Camp… kinda. It was a one-day camp, so it’s really already come and gone, but it sounded better to say I was reporting from camp. By the way, if you have a child in sports, there are a ton of camps like this that […]

Happy 4-0, Bro

Happy 4-0, Bro

So this week is kind of a big week. No. 2 got a coveted spot in Matt Ryan’s Pro Camp. Yes, that Matt Ryan. I don’t know who’s more excited, him or me. Right after that, Nos. 2 and 3 are getting on a plane to visit their grandparents in Montana for two and a […]

Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

I took the fam to the gulf coast over the weekend. We were joined by my wife’s cousin and her kids to make a total of eight people: three adults and five kids. We were outnumbered. Surprisingly, not much went wrong. Given my Grizwaldian luck, I was very surprised. No car trouble, no bad weather, […]

See, What Had Happened Was…

See, What Had Happened Was…

I’ve been asked the same question over and over since about the middle of last November. That’s about the time I returned to Augusta from a failed attempt at following a dream and started having to explain to people why I’m not on the radio anymore. Some people don’t listen on a regular enough basis […]

Some Things, I Just Don’t Understand

Some Things, I Just Don’t Understand

Like most people, there are many things in this world that perplex me. Some would say I’m easily perplexed. Anyway, I figured I’d share some. Maybe you can relate. Or maybe there are things that perplex you. Feel free to comment and share yours on metrospirit.com! Single Serving Condiments: How do they get by without […]

Schools Out For Summer… Almost

Schools Out For Summer… Almost

The countdown is on! As of the morning that this issue hits the stands, my kids have seven days of school left. When I was in school, I always referred to it as the “why assign any schoolwork days.” I mean, we’re almost done right? The last couple of weeks should just be easy, coast-through […]

It’s a Different World

It’s a Different World

So I got a visit from my big brother this past weekend. Kind of. My brother and I are super close. We talk as often as possible and he’s the first person I turn to when I need to vent. I say vent because I stopped asking for advice a while back. I don’t know […]

Be Careful On That Thing!

Be Careful On That Thing!

Imagine if you went through your life constantly hearing how many people die while doing an activity. Not just any activity, but an activity that you love to do, that you are passionate about, that you look forward to doing every chance that you get. This is the life of a motorcycle rider. I love […]
