Where athletics and video games collide

Since the mid- to late-70s, video games have been very popular with people – especially young people.

Parents didn’t want their kids to sit on the couch and play video games but, rather, wanted […]

What’s my age again?

OPINION: A letter to my younger self

I’ve become something of a night owl. The cause of my recent bouts of recurring insomnia may stem from unhealthy origins, but the ability to accomplish tasks, uninterrupted, with all those extra waking hours sure does come in mighty handy. One night, as I was paying bills at 2 a.m., I happened across a segment […]

OPINION: Literally the biggest problem in the world

You know what makes me literally sick? The overuse of the word literally. That’s right, every time I hear that particular adjective, which is literally a billion times a time, I catch cold, contract the measles or come down with an acute case of leprosy. I’m literally writing this from my death bed. Sorry if […]

OPINION: The best laid plans

My daughters, giggling from the other room, requested my presence. Usually, when my name is echoed at a jarring decibel level, one of three scenarios is the culprit: a fight has ensued, something is broken (hopefully not a bone), or one or all my children want to plead a very weak case for an impulse […]
