Blame Cannada

Tiger

It was a moment good enough to give you chills or bring tears to your eyes.

It was Sunday at Augusta and a guy in a red shirt was approaching the green with a chance to win.

You’ve seen it before. It’s certainly not an unfamiliar sight. He’s won the masters a bunch of times before.

Climber at heart

I think I might be a rock climber.

I’m not sure, though.

I’ve never been rock climbing. I’ve never even been willing to climb a tall ladder.

But I think, deep down, I might be a rock climber.

A few weeks ago, I was immobilized by a stomach virus. It was the most sick I’ve ever been. Could not move!

Baseball

I’ve always loved sports, but I’ve never been very athletic.

Those two things don’t normally go hand-in-hand. You usually love sports because you were good at playing a sport. Your dad signed you up for football or little league, and the success and experiences you had on your team increased your love for the game.

Did Duke win?

Four hours after my Tar Heels had sealed a trip to the Sweet 16 with a double-digit win over Washington, I was asking myself, “Why does nothing good ever happen to Carolina??”

You see, the life of a North Carolina basketball fan is complicated. Your happiness is dependent on two things—a North Carolina win and a Duke loss.

The Duke problem

For fans of Duke and North Carolina, filling out an NCAA Tournament bracket each year presents an interesting challenge.

How can I put my team through to the championship while knocking the team I hate out in the early rounds?

Can I count on you, UCF? Of course I can’t! I know you’re gonna let me down!

Racing against dad

There’s a good chance my elderly father is going to beat me in a 5K this weekend, and I’m OK with that.

Just kidding, dad. You’re not elderly. You’re a spring chicken who has just found his wings (chickens fly, don’t they?).

It’s CBB Awareness Month

It is now college basketball awareness month!

I know this sport is a foreign concept to some of you Clemson and South Carolina fans, but over the next month, you’re going to see some of the most exciting sporting events of 2019.

What is true masculinity?

That’s the question our culture is trying to answer right now—and it’s not doing a very good job.

The stereotype certainly isn’t flattering. Men are commonly portrayed as overly aggressive, uninvolved in family life and power hungry in the workplace.

Masculinity is more often described as “toxic” than it is anything else.

Fear the night

Most of you reading this probably look forward to the evenings.

Maybe you’ve had a long day at work. Maybe there’s some delicious dinner waiting on you in the crockpot. Maybe there’s a game to watch or some friends to hang out with.

Being critical

There are two things in life that all human beings have no problem critiquing—movie previews and the Super Bowl.

You’ve done both. I know you have.

Don’t act like you don’t turn to your significant other after watching the preview for Jurrasic World 4 and whisper “Who would pay to see that?”
