Blame Cannada


Monday afternoon, during my hour lunch break from work, I was getting a tattoo in Duncan.

I feel like I should tell you the events that led to this.


The topic I’m about to broach is sensitive in nature.

I try to keep this column rated PG at all times, but some of you might label this entry “TMI,” and that’s perfectly understandable.

Here’s your chance to get out while you can.

For those of you that stayed, I need to warn you…

Life of a casual

I’m what you might call a casual golf fan.

Most of us are.

Very rarely do I mark my calendar or change plans so that I can spend a Saturday or Sunday watching golf. It’s just not that big of a deal to me.

Neither is baseball, or hockey, or soccer or the NBA.

Mayday Mayday

By the time you’re reading this column, I’ll be in survival mode.

The doors and windows of my house will be sealed shut and the only priority I’ll have will be keeping my 6-month-old (and myself) alive.

I don’t know if we’ll make it. Even if we do, neither of us will ever be the same.

Six months

It’s been six months and my wife and I are still standing.

Our daughter, Penny, remains happy, healthy and…AWAKE. Always awake!

We’ve learned a lot, we’ve failed a lot and we’ve slept very little (my wife will have you know she’s slept a lot less than I have).

But, by the grace of God, we’ve made it six months.


It’s been said of North Carolina basketball fans that we aren’t the most humble bunch.

I’ll admit, I’ve been called an arrogant Tar Heel a time or two.


What a time to be alive.
It’s the best week of the year, sports fans!
You don’t have to be a college basketball fan to know that the NCAA tournament is as good as it gets. Anybody can win. Anybody can lose. You’re probably even making some last minute changes to your bracket as you read this.


My 5-month-old daughter is accomplishing all kinds of milestones.

She’s sitting up, laughing her head off, grabbing everything, rolling over….you name it. One milestone I do not approve of, however, is her new ability to break dad’s heart.

For the clicks

If Yahoo! is doing it for the clicks, it’s working.

The website has been slowly leaking documents it obtained relating to the FBI’s college basketball corruption investigation, and SOME of it is actually kind of juicy.


This is normally the most wonderful time of the year for college basketball fans like myself.

The tournament is right around the corner. Anything can happen. The field is more wide open than it has ever been.
