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...

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…

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…

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...

Happy Thanksgiving…

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...

Hoodie Power…

Hoodie Power…

Who knew all it would take to break a 3-game losing streak was a simple hoodie. While James Jones' hoodie look may have reminded me of a JV football player standing on the sidelines watching the Varsity play on a Friday night (a look I have seen all to often over the...

As a kid, Wednesday was one of the best days of the week. Wednesday meant that the new Sports Illustrated would be arriving in the mail later that afternoon. Back then, Sports Illustrated had the coolest sports photos (that we usually ripped out of the school...

Thursday Night Football...why do I keep watching this crap?!?! (By the way...what happened to that intro?). Seriously...I need a life! Or maybe...I need to find a Thursday night bowling league to distract me from these games (it definitely worked in the past)...words...

Thank You…

I'm often asked, where do you come up with the material for your blog? Most days, it comes to me rather easy...and today, it came to me even easier than most. Today's post is simply...THANK YOU! No rant about the Green Bay Packers struggles, the silliness of the...

Rutgers SUCKS!!! I think we all knew that, but after the Scarlet Knights pitiful performance against the Badgers yesterday, my friends and I are boycotting ALL future Wisconsin vs Rutgers football matchups. If the Scarlet Knights are on the Badgers home slate...we...
