Get Your Pigskin and Bird On!

So, Thanksgiving is about as all-American as you can get and on Thanksgiving you also get football. I have often thought of Thanksgiving as the best holiday because, for better or worse, it is what we all love. See, with Christmas (and I love Christmas) there is a pressure of gift giving and making... Read More

Notre Damn Them!

Full disclosure:I am not a fan of Notre Dame football. I will always cheer for the basketball team since the head coach at Notre Dame is Mike Brey who also attended DeMatha Catholic High School (where I graduated from as well). I started by saying I am not a Notre Dame football fan since, as a kid... Read More

A Postseason for the Books!

This year, the baseball World Series was a good one, some may argue it was the best series ever! The Houston Astros were one of the best teams in the regular season and now they are the best team after winning the World Series. The reasons for saying this are many is because the series went seven... Read More

Fog Football the Best Football?

You might not know this about me, but besides sports I also really like weather. I like to watch weather as it approaches and see if the storm will be as big or small as predicted. One exciting thing I like about football and soccer is that the sports for the most part are played outside with no... Read More

A Trough of Meat and Football, Texas Style!

So I went to Dallas, Texas last weekend for the Red River Rivalry which is the annual match up between Texas and Oklahoma. College football is one of my favorite things in the world and I love a good tailgate. Years ago, my brother and I decided that once a year we get together and watch a iconic... Read More

The World Cup Does NOT Floweth Over!

Sad times indeed for the USA. I am not making any kind of political statement here, but I am talking about how our national team failed to make The World Cup. It is a bad joke and national nightmare that we could not even qualify for our group Concacaf, which is not the most completive group in the... Read More

The Reason for the Postseason!

It's October and maybe the best sports month of the year since we now have a lot of sports happening. Here's the deal, College Football and the National Football League are in full swing and we also have Postseason Baseball! Even if you are not the biggest baseball fan in the world, it is hard not...

Is It the BEST Play In Sports?

A lot of sports have cool plays, but you could argue which is the coolest play. What is the coolest play you ask? I am talking about home runs, slam dunks, a touchdown off a long pass, even a crazy bicycle kick for a goal in soccer. First, I will start with the home run. When you're at a baseball... Read More

Football is Back!

The NFL is back for real this week. That's right! No more pre-season stuff that doesn't matter. The games are real and so are the hits. I have said before that I am not the biggest NFL fan these days, but there is no doubt that the NFL is the national sport of the USA. First, let's just take the... Read More

First Pitches

In this world, you have goals and dreams growing up you wish to one day accomplish. Going to a baseball game and throwing out the first pitch was always a dream of mine. I have yet to get to throw one out at a Major League Baseball game, but have had the honor of throwing out a first pitch at two... Read More
