HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

My aversions to manufactured holidays are quite documented (it is estimated that US shoppers will spend nearly $23 Billion dollars for this current Mothers Day, surpassed only by Christmas and Hanukkah), but how can I not make an exception for any day that celebrates women and more specifically all the mother’s out there. Happy Mother’s […]

TIME

I have never feared another man (or woman) in my life. This isn’t the beginning of some type of declaration extolling how tough I think I am, but rather I have just never wasted my time worrying about people in relation to my own pursuit of happiness, well being and even safety. Trust I have […]

RAY ALLEN

I just ate a bowl of loyalty for breakfast. It has been a creed I have lived by nearly my entire life. I played sports, and while not on a professional level, feel like I understand the locker rooms codes and relationships that are formed and abided by beyond just the regular existence of “Man […]

DEPRESSING NEWS VS. STAYING INFORMED

Terrorism, Fake news, lies, death, destruction, plague, natural disasters, Trump, politicians in general, mass shootings, racism disguised as populism or nationalism, pre-existing conditions, another Kardashian story… The news is beyond depressing… Anyone of us would be justified in completely shutting the world out in a pursuit of peace and sanity. Yet, how do you avoid […]

PHILLY FANS

The NFL draft was held in Philadelphia and over 70,000 fans booed NFL Comissoner Roger Godell early loudly and often. This should hardly come as a surprise since Goddell is often booed in public, but Philly Fans have a special relationship with bad behavior. When it comes to who has the worst behaving fans in […]

FAITH

Anyone that knows me, is aware of my feelings regarding organized religion… I am not a big fan. Do not confuse this with me having any type of disdain for people’s beliefs in whatever gods they worship or a lessing in the importance that religion may have to various people and cultures worldwide. I respect […]

BYE FELICIA

Any fan of the cult classic “Friday” remembers the dismissal of the pretty crackhead played by Angela Means. “Bye Felicia” became a tagline for dismissal and unfortunately the draft fortunes of her son Brad Kaaya have reverted to being worthy of the irony and cruelty that the Internet lends when such easy dots are connected […]

FRENEMIES

Two women walk into a restaurant. Their enthusiastic greetings make it clear that the two share a strong bond and probably have not seen in each other in a while. They order wine and Carpaccio to start and while waiting on the main course they talk…and talk…and talk… A bottle of wine and 2 hours later, they hug […]
