Not Quite Ready for High SchoolNot Quite Ready for High School

It’s that time of year, once again: Back to school. It’s normally dreaded by kids everywhere. Summertime is over, so no more swimming, no more sleeping in, no more late nights. It’s back to the grind. My kids, however, are beside themselves with excitement. My daughter, No. 3, is excited because she’s starting middle school […]

Bear Market

Bear Market

Life has a way of being awesome but sometimes being terrible. Things seem to happen in clumps. Either a few good things happen or a few bad things happen. I like to refer to it as my own personal stock market. Last week I find a $20 bill on the ground and get the last […]

It’s a Dog’s World

It’s a Dog’s World

Amongst all the controversy and arguing these past couple of weeks, I’ve had some friends lose some loved ones that were quite dear to them. As I sat and thought about the hurt they are going through, it really put things into perspective for me. I’ve been through their same kind of hurt. Many of […]

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes

The real, but too-long headline, should read “Behind the Scenes of Trying to Put on a Concert in Augusta.” And even then, it is a little deceiving, because I should specify a “non-country” concert in Augusta. Putting a country concert on in Augusta, I suspect, goes something like this: Schedule absolutely any country artist ever […]

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 […]
