You Only Need To Know One Thing
For years, I have seen numerous examples of people writing letters to their younger selves. Some author wrote a book about it. A bunch of famous women have done it. Hell, even Albert Haynesworth did it recently. Although in his case he clearly missed the point, as he told his younger self he should haveContinue reading “You Only Need To Know One Thing”
It Matters. Trust Me.
I have always believed that everything you do and say, is an indication of the person you are, as well as the person that others see. Everything from the shows you watch, the clothes you wear, the music you enjoy, to the friends you choose, the opinions you have, and the words you speak. AllContinue reading “It Matters. Trust Me.”
He’s A Good Man, That Dale Hansen.
As a person who grew up in the Boston area, I think I am like most locals when I say that ever since I can remember caring about sports, I was a fan of Bob Lobel. He was a rockstar sportscaster, who was the #1 guy in town. WBZ TV was his home, and almostContinue reading “He’s A Good Man, That Dale Hansen.”

An Open Letter To Jerry Jones
You will never get the credit. Ever. The sooner you realize that, the better off you’ll be for it. I have dreaded this day for a long time. The day I would admit that “deep down, in places you don’t talk about at parties”, I want the Cowboys to be good again, and I wantContinue reading “An Open Letter To Jerry Jones”
I Gotta Tip For Ya, Right Here
What is it going to take for us to change the manner in which we tip are waiters and waitresses? It is such a broken system, and I cannot believe it is still in use, in its current form. What I really can’t figure out is why anyone thought it made sense to begin with.Continue reading “I Gotta Tip For Ya, Right Here”
My Open Letter To #2
Oh, how I wanted to hate you. Oh, how I wanted to see you get hurt. Oh, how I wanted your team to lose. ALWAYS!! Oh, how I wanted to………… Oh, who am I kidding!!! It’s time to quit being in denial and just admit it. Oh, how I wish you had played for theContinue reading “My Open Letter To #2”
An Open Letter to the Republican Party
In 1988 I turned 18 and was able to vote for the first time. Like most young, first time voters, I really didn’t know a damn thing about the politics of the time. Quite honestly, I really didn’t care. I was 18. I only knew what I heard around the house, or the very littleContinue reading “An Open Letter to the Republican Party”
Blowing Off Some Steam.
Man, do I have some shit I need to get off my chest, and it’s not politics, religion or sports. It’s political correctness, and it’s making me insane. I’m not talking about crap like calling an Asian woman, Oriental, which you shouldn’t do by the way, or the insanity of the over-offended women calling forContinue reading “Blowing Off Some Steam.”
