There’s One Reason to Smile as a Steelers Fan This Week

It has not been a good week for the Pittsburgh Steelers and its fans. The team saw its franchise quarterback leave last Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks with an elbow injury, requiring surgery that would keep him out the rest of the season and putting the team’s hopes of climbing out of a 0-2 […]

Introduce the Democratic Candidates Like the 90s Chicago Bulls

I haven’t watched any of the third presidential debate featuring the 10-highest polling Democrats, but I’m sure it’s very interesting. I’m not here to talk about policies. I’m here to talk about how they were introduced on the stage in Houston Thursday night. Each of the candidates, one-by-one introduced like this by ABC News to […]

The Joy and Anguish of Being a Notre Dame Fan

Tonight, Notre Dame begins its 2019 season at Louisville against the Cardinals. On one hand, I’m excited. I would be more happy if they played this Saturday afternoon, but they’re back. But I also know, much like a tweet from the President, the season can go sideways quickly. I was born into a family that […]

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of FBS-FCS Week 1 Matchups

For those of you new to any blog I’ve had, this is a series that started on my other blog “Gallagher’s Word“. Week 1 of the college football season doesn’t have a lot of great matchups. Some Power 5 schools tend to schedule weaker FBS opponents and some are still paying FCS schools to get […]

Taking a Step Back From Sports

I’ve always loved sports. I played several of them as a kid, watch them on a regular basis and at times growing up, they were my biggest concern. For the first five-plus years out of college, they surrounded my job titles in radio. When I took my job in Oklahoma, on top of doing news, […]

My Love/Hate Relationship with Air Conditioning

Here’s something you already know: It’s hot in the summer. Especially this one it seems. I spent two summers in Oklahoma, and it gets really hot out there. We’re talking 100-plus degree temperatures for consecutive days, but it wasn’t as bad with the lower humidity. When I moved to Cincinnati last November, I went from […]

“By Gum!” The Blues Might Just Do It!

The St. Louis Blues took a 3-2 lead in the Stanley Cup Final after a controversial Game 5, in which the eventual game-winner came after a missed penalty on St. Louis. Aside from the controversy, the Blues have not only won three games in this series, which is three more than they won in the […]

“Veep’s” Uncle Jeff: Icing on the Insult Cake

It’s weird how “Veep” was a fictional portrayal of politics in Washington D.C. and after 2016 in the real political world, it seemed to become more of a documentary, but that’s not what this post is about. Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer and everyone else in the cast was just marvelous, especially with the amazing, grotesque […]
