Blame Cannada

Playoffs?

I’m going to write about basketball again, y’all.

I’ve taken a bit of a leave from the sport since my beloved Heels won it all (You guys do remember that, right? Yes? Ok, good, just checking).

It’s a…

I’ve been apologizing to my wife for years..
“Shannon,” I’d say… “I’m sorry, but you know we’re not going to be able to have a girl, right? It’s just not possible. I come from a long line of men. Us Cannadas don’t make girls…”
It’s sort of true.

Appreciation

They go to work early. They stay late. They look after your children and spend countless hours finding ways to better educate them. They sacrifice time with their own families, so they can spend time with yours.

We owe a lot to our teachers, and we should show them how much we appreciate them this week.

Outdoors

I’m not what you would call “outdoorsy.”
I love campfires and S’mores and cool weather and clear skies, but I also like being inside.
I have nothing against camping. I’ve done it quite a bit, in fact.

Clearing the air

I could just let this die.
I probably should just let this die.
But what fun would that be?
If every journalist covering the Final Four in Phoenix can voice their opinion on UNC and the NCAA investigation into several of the university’s African American Studies classes, why can’t I?

Carolina victory

Sports have a funny way of always telling the perfect story.

I believe this now.

If you would’ve told me that last year, I would have called you a liar and told you where you could go. But as you know by now, my North Carolina Tar Heels have been redeemed and are champions of the college basketball world for the sixth time.

They’re back

I know this feels like destiny, Gamecock fans.
I know you’re heading into this weekend feeling like you’re going to win two games and cut down the nets in Phoenix.
Some of you may be on your way there now to witness it in person.
But before you get any further down this road, we need to talk.

Hope

It’s funny how moments I thought were the most important moments of my life can lose their significance in an instant.

Graduating college. Buying a home. Getting my first job…

None of this stuff matters when you compare it to seeing your child’s heartbeat for the first time.

Welcome to Greenville

One of the greatest sporting events of the year gets underway this weekend, and two national title contenders will begin their paths to the Final Four in Greenville.
Yep, the Tar Heels and Gamecocks are the favorites to win it all, and Upstate residents will get a front row seat to the first two rounds…
