Blame Cannada


I’ve never really celebrated Halloween.
Not because I have some religious opposition to it or I’m somewhat of a curmudgeon, but because this holiday doesn’t make much sense.
We’ve come to accept that on the last day of October, we dress up in funny costumes, eat candy and celebrate fear.

Dr. Google

I’ve always tried to be a straight shooter with you guys.

If I can’t be honest and relatable in my columns, they won’t be any good. I realize that.

That’s why I confess things I wouldn’t normally confess and write about embarrassing moments in my life that I would do better to keep to myself.

Catching up

It’s been a while since I’ve used this column to write about sports and I know I’ve missed some things.
So, I’ll try to run the gamut here and give you my take the many topics I’ve missed since entering this traumatic newborn-having phase of life.

Penelope Claire Cannada was born on Sept. 23 at 9:30 p.m., weighing 6 pounds, 11 ounces. She is 20 inches long.

Our lucky Penny

Have you ever had such an incredible story to tell that figuring out where to start seems nearly impossible?

That’s how I feel about 10 days after the birth of my first child, Penelope Claire.

I guess I could begin by telling you how we felt nine months ago when we learned baby Penny was on the way.

Any day

You’ll have to hang in there while I document all of our first baby experiences over the coming weeks. As you can probably understand, my wife and I are quite nervous and it’s sort of the only thing on our minds these days.

Building the nest

I’ve always heard the term “nesting” thrown around when referring to pregnant women, but it never meant anything to me until a few weeks ago.

As you may know, my wife and I are getting close to welcoming our first child, so her motherly instincts are currently in overdrive.

So much so that I’m having a hard time keeping up.

So far...

It’s been about a month since I gave my way-too-early high school football predictions for the 2017 season, and I thought now would be a good time to check in on how it’s going.

Before I do that, however, I want to tell you about another predection.

The TKO we were waiting for

I’m no longtime boxing fan, but a little ignorance has never stopped me from offering an opinion on anything else, so I have a few thoughts on McGregor/Mayweather.

I’ll start with this: $100 to watch that fight was too rich for my blood.


I haven’t spent a lot of time writing about this, but I’m getting ready to have a baby in a month.

Having known this truth since February, I’ve had time to go through the various stages of anxiety.
