Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

Image via Pixabay We were visiting my mother several years ago and in the course of the conversation I happened to mention the scar on the back of my head. I had just gotten a haircut — I still had a full head of hair then — and mentioned that the barber nicked the scar.... Continue Reading →

Three, two, one — Swish!

I love college basketball because anything can happen. College basketball is big money now, for a variety of reasons, but I still love the unpredictability of the game.  I love it especially this time of year as March Madness prepares to get underway. Oh yes, the NCAA Division I men’s and women's basketball tournaments get... Continue Reading →

The city that loves you back

When the Kansas City Chiefs kicker kicked the football through the uprights on Sunday winning the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, I started getting the teasing text messages from coworkers and distant friends. The gist of the messages: “Oh boy, watch out, Philadelphia is going to burn now. The fans are going to go... Continue Reading →

However, when we sit down to watch a movie, she tends to love sports movies like Remember the Titans with Denzel Washington, The Blind Side, or even... Continue Reading →

Our bus pulled into the parking lot. I remember being full of excitement. I was going to see my first NFL football game, the St. Louis Cardinals versus the Baltimore Colts in old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore. I didn't know much about either team, but I wasn't about to pass up a chance to go... Continue Reading →

Checking in on the modern day Soap Opera

When I was a young boy, my mother would let me play at a friend's house. We’d play with her brother’s Matchbox cars, or I’d cart my Lincoln Logs and we’d build a fort. We would be allowed to play uninterrupted for hours as long as we didn’t bother her mother in the middle of... Continue Reading →

Walking on clouds

I complained to my mom. I didn’t want to go and now my feet hurt. My elementary class was singing and performing for the residents of a local nursing facility. My mom yelled at me that if I didn’t get a move on, I was going to be late.  I wanted to stay home and... Continue Reading →

Getting ready for the Super Bowl

Super Bowl LVI will play this weekend to record crowds. In fact, the game is expected to draw 95 to 100 million viewers in the U.S. and perhaps another 40 million people worldwide.  Viewers will switch on the game to root for the Cincinnati Bengals or the Los Angelas Rams, but a significant amount will...
