Blame Cannada


My 30th birthday was on Tuesday.

Depending on who is reading this, that’s either really old or really young. I don’t feel young at all, though.

Too soon

The great Michael Scott once said, “I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.”

I think this is true of a few guys on this year’s senior legion team.


Summer is objectively the worst season.

These are the kinds of opinions you come here for, right? You want to see me write bad things about something most people love.

I know most teachers just let out a gasp reading that. But it’s true for me and that’s what matters in today’s culture.

Bad words

We try to watch decent TV shows at our house.

Sure, my wife will keep up with the Bachelor and all of its spin-offs, but as a family we make it a point to keep it PG, especially for the kids.

To be honest, we really only watch Coco with Penny these days.

But every now and then, I’ll be exposed to some dark television.

Early predictions

Each year, I try to give my “way too early” high school football predictions after watching teams compete in 7-on-7s and talking with coaches through summer workouts. They might not always be the most accurate predictions because our teams haven’t even put pads on yet, but it makes it even more impressive if I’m right.

Road trip

I thought I was a parent.

I’ve been doing dad stuff for nearly two years at this point. I’ve changed diapers, dished out discipline and I’ve started wearing sun screen to mow the lawn. I’ve even received a Father’s Day gift.

I thought these things made you a dad. But I was wrong.

Not safe

I’d like to think my neighborhood is safe.

We live on a quiet road, far enough away from downtown Greer to be away from all the traffic noise and trains.
