Blame Cannada


As I sat down to watch some pro and college football over the weekend, something profound dawned on me.

This next sentence is a little profane, so if you’re a sensitive sports fan, I suggest you stop reading now:

Football, yes FOOTBALL, is a little bit boring.

A big win

It was hard to do my job Friday night.

Not because of the rain or the lightning or the constant delays, but because standing on the Byrnes sideline was bringing out my inner football fan.

Bad look for NGU

It wasn’t a great week to be a graduate of North Greenville University.

After a video surfaced—calling into question actions of former university president Dr. Jimmy Epting—buzz began to circulate about the Christian college and its leadership.

Closer look

As a new football season gets underway this Friday, it’s time to take a closer look at a few teams we’ll be following over the course of the next 10 weeks.


I’ve finally found a sport that is completely tailored to my athletic abilities.

No, it’s not baskeball, football, hockey or wrestling--although I would love to be good at any one of those sports.

I’m talking about is Spikeball.

Back at it again

After the first official week of high school football practice, I can’t help but be overcome with nostalgia.

I remember my first practice like it was yesterday.


Oh, Panama City, Florida.

What better way to rejuvenate your excitement for life than a week on the Gulf Coast?

That’s where I was last week at this time: sitting on my lawn chair pondering life’s tough questions…

How many rounds of putt putt can I squeeze in this week?

Where are we going to eat tonight?

Photos from Pluto

Last week the world was graced with a few, high-resolution “photos” of Pluto, courtesy of NASA. We may not have hovercrafts, jetpacks or floating skateboards like Marty McFly, but by golly we’ve got pictures of one of the most mysterious places in the universe.  

Timed baseball

On Monday night, Major League Baseball got me to do something I didn’t think was possible anymore.

I actually watched the Home Run Derby.

Like the rest of baseball, this event peaked in the 1990s.
