Blame Cannada

My swing

I’ve played more golf this summer than I’ve ever played in my life.

Not because I’m any good at it or because I can afford it—I just thought if I did something enough times, I would improve. With golf, this really isn’t the case.

When will it end?

I’m not cut out for summers in the south.

I can’t stand the relentless frying pan heat, the YUGE power bill and the constant sweat dripping off uncomfortable parts of my body.

I’m telling you, if it doesn’t cool off soon, I’m moving.

I can do that

Despite what you might think while on your couch watching TV, these Olympic sports aren’t as easy as they look.
This is something I became sure of Saturday afternoon while swimming with family.

Should we elect Michael Phelps president?

I know this election cycle hasn’t been so friendly, but one thing I think all Americans can agree on, Republican or Democrat, is that the United States loves this man.

Hey, August

It’s August, y’all. And August means football.

I’ve done this a bunch of times. This is a 10 minute, two dollar fix.”

Those were the reassuring words of my friend and neighbor as we attempted to fix my broken master bathroom toilet Sunday afternoon.

I believed him, but I doubted the project would be that easy, considering I was involved.

Since I’m known as the resident 5-year-old in my office, I would be remiss if I didn’t share my thoughts on the popular new cell phone game, Pokémon Go.

I understand if I just lost half my readers right there. It’s OK. Come back next week when I discuss sports and other general nonsense that goes on in my life.

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.

Dream team?

Team USA announced its men’s basketball roster for the upcoming summer games in Rio this week, and after I stopped laughing, I figured I would share some thoughts.

Before I proceed with this column, however, you should know that I can’t be very objective about this topic (or any topic, now that I’m thinking about it).
