DESMOND IS…NOT SO AMAZING

Posted on January 9, 2019

The Twilight Zone moment. You know, those times in your life when you step back, take a deep breath, shake your head in total disbelief then question everything you think you know about reality.  That’s a Twilight Zone moment. And it seems as if there’s a direct and distinct relationship between the frequency of their […]


RELEASE YOUR INNER CAVEMAN

Posted on January 8, 2019

Any fans of Duck Dynasty out there? A few years back, when the show was cresting its zenith of popularity, you could certainly include me as one.  What jaded, cynical suburbanite man wasn’t? The Robertsons represented everything good and right. They were a self-made, tight-knit family holding true to their country values-having tons of fun […]

An image.  Whether you’re the shaved-head, ripped bodybuilder, the long-haired, care-free musician, the tatted, ominous biker, or a little of all […]


THE MIS-COACHING OF LAMAR JACKSON

Posted on January 2, 2019

Exciting times if you’re a pigskin fan living in the Charm City! Just like the hard-nosed attitude of the city they play for, the Baltimore Ravens have recently transitioned from a pass happy, mediocre offense into a smash-mouth, grind-it-out, running-machine juggernaut that has taken the league by storm this season.  Demoralizing and frustrating defenses, setting […]
