Blame Cannada


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…

MJ’s coolness

The ceiling is the roof.”
These are the beautiful words of Michael Jordan, who addressed a sold out crowd at the Smith Center Saturday night at halftime of the North Carolina/Duke game.
For those that might be confused by this quote that has gone viral, there’s only one thing you need to understand.


There’s this recurring dream I have…
In it, I’m the best man in somebody’s wedding and I wake up on the day of the ceremony having forgotten to do all of my duties. I don’t have the tuxedo. I haven’t prepared the speech. I don’t even know where I need to be.
It’s a nightmare, actually.


What allows a Division I basketball team to win 100-straight games?

The short answer is: I have no idea.

Geno Auriemma, I guess. That has to be the answer, right? Nothing else makes sense.

Rambling about sports

You’ll have to excuse me while I bounce around from topic to topic this week, but there are a lot of things I want to write about and I can’t choose just one.

I’ll start with signing day.

Goodbye Trixie

Today, we remember Trixie.

I choose to remember her in her prime—not the sad state in which her life was ended.

She was sleek, exciting and dressed in a beautiful shade of blue…

Yep, there’s no beating that 2002 Pontiac Sunfire that faithfully transported my wife for the better part of 10 years.

Bad idea

It took until mile 12 on the day of the race, but I finally realized that running a half marathon was a bad idea.

Greer will miss Tony Tipton

I’ve never seen a town that loves its football like Greer, and I’ve never met a man who loved Greer football quite like Tony Tipton.

Tony was an ambassador for Greer High School and an advocate for all Yellow Jacket sports. His passing will certainly leave a void in the hearts of his friends and family.


This national championship was due for Clemson.

Over the past couple of years, there hasn’t been a college football team that has done more to put itself in a position to succeed like the Tigers.
