March Madness has finally arrived...and no thanks to the worst Selection Show in the history of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Who would have thought that the entire bracket would get leaked during a TWO HOUR Selection Show (ME...I totally called this)...well,...

T&F…

It was the spring of 1992...that was the last spring that I did not participate in the sport of track & field as either an athlete or as a coach. Tomorrow, the track & field season begins for all high schools in the state of Wisconsin. It's hard to believe...

Steph Curry…

There are simply no words for this! I mean...Steph Curry is just flat out ridiculous! Curry is a like watching a human video game...actually he's better than the video game! But that hasn't stopped NBA 2K16 from trying...this is almost as awesome as the real thing! My...

J-Mac and PDW…

Dear ESPN, MORE OF THIS PLEASE!!! Jason McElwain (or J-Mac) stole our hearts way back in February of 2006 when he scored 20 points during a high school varsity basketball game. McElwain, who is autistic, was the team manager for the Greece Athena High School...

Duck Fuke…

I HATE DUKE!!! Over the weekend, I was reminded (AGAIN) why I hate Duke so much. In this play, Grayson Allen CLEARLY travels, but no call from the officials (typical Duke). Shockingly, Duke fans were clamoring for a foul on the play…WHERE?! And Speaking of Allen,...

NBA All-Star Weekend…

I love the NBA All-Star Weekend (in Toronto this year)...from the festivities on Friday and Saturday, to the game on Sunday, I love everything about this particular weekend. Back in the day, there were no Friday night events and the slam dunk contest and three-point...

The Big Game…

The Big Game…

Super Bowl L (I mean 50), is SLOWLY creeping its way here. I say slowly, because living in the Bay Area has been constant Super Bowl coverage on just about every network for well over a week. Between the countdowns and the live shots from downtown San Francisco and...

Who’s the band…

Last Thursday, at my wife's urging (Happy Birthday!), we saw Josh Ritter perform at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Although I didn't know any of Josh Ritter's songs (not really my style) going into the evening...I must admit, I had a really great time at the show and...

Now what…

Now what…

On Saturday night, as Larry Fitzgerald walked into the end zone for the game's winning score, a sick feeling passed through my entire body (and no, it wasn't my alcohol consumption). This feeling, was the same feeling I had a almost a year ago, to the day, when the...

It's time for America's favorite game...Blind Quarterback Resume! The following 8 quarterbacks will be competing in this weekend's Wild Card games. See if you can figure out who each quarterback is...as the numbers are based off the 2nd half of the season (8 games)....

Christmas Catalogs…

Christmas Catalogs…

As Clara and I watched Home Alone last night (in an effort to get into the Christmas spirit), I started to think about all the different toys and games from the 80's and 90's. With those thoughts, my mind quickly raced to...the JCPenney Christmas Catalog. The JCPenney...

The Oakland Double…

One of the neat things about living in California is that your hometown teams (the teams you grew up rooting for...and still avidly follow and cheer for) come and visit once in awhile. This past weekend, it worked out to perfection...the Bucks played the Warriors on...

Christmas Vacation…

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is one of my all-time favorite movies! I cannot wait to sit down some day next week (I am off ALL week) and watch it over and over (traditionally Clara and I do this on Christmas Eve and Christmas, but we'll see what Theune has in...

Charlie Wills Award…

Otherwise known as…the least favorite Badger. Going back to my college days, Wisconsin has always had a player on their roster (that played major minutes) that my friends and I really did not like. The first such player that my friends and I absolutely despised was...

Must See TV…

Tonight is the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, airing on CBS. This show is quite possibly CBS's finest hour of programming all year long...outside of sports, of course. I look forward to this show every-single-year...and I won't even attempt to describe what this...

Mission Accomplished…

During the wee hours of the morning on January 1st (when all good ideas are usually concocted...thanks Mike and Pat), while drinking a Jigger Ale (beer #1) at The Horse & Plow, I decided I would use the Untappd app (drink socially) to track ALL the beers I would...

Or should I say...Happy Th4nksgiving! May your day be filled with lots of family, food, football, and Favre...lots and lots of Favre! Like John Madden slobbering levels of Favre...one has to wonder if Madden (or Frank Caliendo) will be at the retirement ceremony and...
