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 […]

Here Comes Santa Who?

Here Comes Santa Who?

Break out the eggnog and the boughs of holly! We’re skipping Thanksgiving this year! At least, it sometimes seems that way. This is the time of year that half of everybody begins celebrating the Christmas season. The other half of everybody complains that it’s too early to celebrate. I’m kind of in-between. I definitely don’t […]

If I Had It To Do All Over Again…

If I Had It To Do All Over Again…

The Facebook Memories feature has been very interesting over the past few weeks. Y’see, this is the time of year that my failed attempt at my dream job took place two years ago. I feel like I bring this up a lot. That’s probably because it’s a very pivotal moment in my life. I learned […]

Here We Go Again

Here We Go Again

2015 has been a wonderful year… and it has been a miserable year. This year has seen me reintroduced into the career that I love, my face on the cover of this paper with an amazing article written by a good friend. I even was lucky enough to be voted Metro’s Best Local DJ. All […]
