Blame Cannada

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.


Some of my earliest memories in life are of Joe’s Ice Cream Parlor in Easley.

I remember sitting in a booth, dipping cut up hot dogs in ketchup, watching as my parents laughed and joked with Joe Lesley.

We always went to Joe’s. Everybody in Easley did.

First birdie

I’ve said this in past columns, but it’s worth repeating: I’m terrible at the game of golf.

I love it.

Boy, do I love it.

But I’m not good at it.

At all.

Bad diet

I’ve always heard the expression “you can’t outwork a bad diet,” but I’ve honestly never understood it.

To me, diet and exercise and weight loss (something I have too much experience with lately) always boiled down to one thing: calories.

Three on three

I don’t know how far down the list my buddy had to go to get to me, but last week, he called to ask if I would play in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

For those that don’t know me well, I will respond “yes” to any basketball invitation. A 3-on-3 tournament with money on the line is certainly no exception.


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

What a dark, dark time this has been for sports fans across the nation. Each offseason seems more long and grueling than the last.

They paid Curry how much?

A great many back payments are included in it, I assure you.”

Those weren’t just Ebenezer Scrooge’s words at the end of “A Christmas Carol.”

They were also the words of the Warriors’ front office when Steph Curry was resigned to a 5-year, $201 million deal this week.

Good grief! He’s making how much?

Early bird

This is going to sound hilarious to future Billy, but I see no reason for any man, woman or child to be up at 5 a.m.

I understand that, with a baby due in a couple of months, I will only ever wake up at 5 a.m. for the rest of my life.
