Blame Cannada

NBA fix

Sometimes, when you break something, it doesn’t work the way it should anymore.

This is the case for the Golden State Warriors, who just lost the NBA championship despite having one of the best rosters ever assembled.

After winning three championships in the last four years, it seemed like the rich could only get richer.

TV on the brain

TV is ruining our lives.

I know I’m not breaking any news here. Television has always been ruining our lives, but its destructive powers have become a little more….well, destructive, I guess.

Awkward

For several months now, my wife has been wanting me to take the girls to toddler hour at this local gymnastics facility.

I did not want to do this for obvious reasons.

Malibu

I need to update y’all on Malibu Shannon.

For those of you that don’t remember, this is the name my school teacher wife assumes each time the summer rolls around.

She’s called this for multiple reasons.

Here ya go

My wife and I have spent the last year and a half waiting for our daughter to do a bunch of cool stuff.

We’ve been trying to get her to say a ton of words, do a bunch of tricks and gain a lot of knowledge.

I did not, however, anticipate her adopting my idiosyncrasies.

Here are a few examples…

Champions and contenders

Every once in a while, we’re reminded just how good our local athletes are.

It’s easy to forget. When schools or teams have been successful for a long period of time, it becomes the norm—it’s almost expected that they will continue to win.

Toughness

I’ve never understood why people run ultra marathons, 100 mile races, 50Ks or anything in the ball park of those events.

While I still don’t, I did get my first taste of what these event look like up close over the weekend.

Baby danger

Having two kids under two is hard in a lot of ways, but no one has it more difficult than the baby.

Our sweet little Charlie is two months old now. She’s healthy, happy and growing. She’s sleeping through the night and loves to smile and talk.

But she has a big sister that is going to kill her.

Soccer playoffs begin this week

Soccer teams from Greer, Eastside and Riverside will begin their journey to the state title game this week, as the opening round of the state playoffs gets underway.

On the boys’ side, Greer will take on Walhalla at home, with a chance to match up against top-seeded AC Flora in round two on Thursday.
