Blame Cannada


My wife and I are habitually late.

This is not something I’m just now realizing, but it’s something I’m finally willing to admit out loud.

Haunting memory

As a North Carolina basketball fan, there’s a certain night in April I’ve tried to forget.

When your team loses the National Championship on a buzzer beater, you don’t recover quickly, if ever.

Choir practice

There are several years in my childhood I no longer speak of for fear of being made fun of.

Not that I’m a super self-conscious person, but I’d rather not bring unwanted ridicule on myself. I get enough of that as it is.

People watching

What’s more American than stuffing your face with Grandma’s delicious cooking before joining the line at Target to get your paws on that 50 inch flat screen for $199 bucks?

Not a thing.

Coach Lane

The Byrnes football program lost a head coach this week, and he was a really good one, too.

The Rebels are coming off one of their toughest seasons since the 1990s, only winning three games and failing to make the playoffs. Monday afternoon, it was announced that Brian Lane would be stepping down from his position.

Looking back

Forget the fact that playoffs aren’t starting for another week or so—this has been a very weird high school football season.

Blame it on a number of factors (inexperience, injuries, region swaps, etc), but this season has been anything but normal.

Loveable losers

By the time you’re reading this, you’ll already know the results of Game 6 of the World Series, but it won’t make a difference with what I’m about to share.

Cubs don’t want to win a championship.


Give anything enough time and you’ll start to recall it fondly in your mind.

It’s how our brains cope with the traumatic experiences in our lives. If we remembered every horrible detail about a bad experience in the past, life would be so much harder than it already is.

Polling Shannon

As uninterested in sports as my wife is, one of my favorite things to do is ask her sports questions.

There was a time when I didn’t appreciate the fact that my wife couldn’t care less about things like football.
