California Dreamin’

California Dreamin’

It’s just past 10 a.m. Pacific time, Friday, February 12, and I’m walking through the LA Live Pavilion in Los Angeles, California… past ESPN, past the Microsoft Theater and across Chick Hearn Court to the Staples Center. I filmed a selfie-Snapchat as I walked past the statues of Magic Johnson and Wayne Gretzky. I tried […]

Walking The Line

Walking The Line

Lately, I’ve been trying to teach my daughter the fine art of not crossing the line. She is the unfortunate recipient of my smart mouth and her mother’s lack of filter. Also, she’s 11, so she’s not very well versed on when to realize she’s approached the line. You know the line, that line between […]

Who’s Ready For Spring?

Who’s Ready For Spring?

Our weather has been flirting with spring-like temperatures lately. Coupled with sunny skies and a Punxatawny prediction for an early spring, it’s got me panicking a bit. Like most people, I’d like to be a bit more in shape than I currently am. I’m not morbidly obese and I hide my beer gut pretty well, […]

Man’s Best Traitor

Man’s Best Traitor

I’m a dog person. I don’t hate cats, but I’ve always loved dogs and I’ve had a good run with the canine breed. My first dog of my own, Roy, was my best friend in the world. We went through so much together: Eleven jobs, five different states, nine girlfriends, a wife, three kids, the […]

The Healing Power of Positivity

The Healing Power of Positivity

I like to consider myself a positive person. I’m one of those people who try to put a positive spin on everything, sometimes annoyingly so. Recently, my usually rosy outlook on life was shown up in a big way. My family spent Christmas in Ohio this year. In between visiting family, we stopped to see […]

New Years Resolution? Thanks, I’ll Pass

New Years Resolution? Thanks, I’ll Pass

It’s the post-Christmas hot topic every year. If you think about it, it’s kind of weird how Christmas is just swept right away after all the hype and hullabaloo (I love that word) leading up to it. Presents? Unwrapped. Quality family time? Check. Christmas dinner? Eaten. New Year’s Eve celebrating? Done. The day after the […]

The Wonder Years

The Wonder Years

My oldest son, No. 2, turned 14 this week. Yes, 14. What the hell am I doing with a 14-year-old? I’m not supposed to have 14-year-olds! You know who’s supposed to have 14-year-olds? My parents. Somehow, I ended up with one, so I guess that means I’m one of those… I can’t even bring myself […]

Smart Move

Smart Move

So the follow up to last week’s “I hate to see him go, but I get it” column is a message to the new coach of the Georgia Bulldog football team. A message that he will surely never read, but I’m writing it anyway. Coach Smart: Welcome home! Congratulations on your dream job coaching the […]

Winning Isn’t Everything, But Losing Sucks

Winning Isn’t Everything, But Losing Sucks

Since no one is writing anything about it, I figured I’d write a column about the firing of Mark Richt. I’m sorry, the “mutual parting of ways.” Riiiight. He was fired. The resulting backlash has been abundant and expected. But, to be honest, the move was expected too. C’mon. People have been calling for his […]

Can I Get a Lift?

Can I Get a Lift?

I received a phone call last weekend that everyone dreads. It was a call from my wife saying that she had gotten into a wreck. However, that call didn’t go anything like I would have expected. I would envision a call like this: A frantic wife on the other end of the phone, barely having […]
