80’s hoops

I wrote this in an email tonight… not sure it was appreciated by the recipient (as he’s about 15 years younger than me) but it really made me wax nostalgic for some old-school NBA playoffs. I stopped watching the NBA playoffs when the Cavs lost. Doc Rivers bores me. Kobe is a male slut. KG […]


Sometimes you just have to stop and appreciate when things feel GOOD once in a while. This is one of those times. Lots of good things in my life right now. Sometimes we dwell on the troubles and struggles and look past the good. Not letting that happen! I’m reading a great book, the new […]

Have you “Meet the Press” Tony??

My buddy Tony has had the pleasure of hosting the Meet the Press folks at his WTHR studios in Indianapolis in the run-up to the Indy primary on Tuesday. He got himself published on MSNBC too!! Watch Meet the Press here in a few minutes and see if you can find any orange and brown […]
