Cincinnati: One Year Later

You always grow familiar with a certain place after you have lived there for some time. For over two years, the rural Oklahoma town of Woodward, a place I never thought I would venture to before the summer of 2016, was my home for work, where I learned to appreciate the small town life afterContinue reading “Cincinnati: One Year Later”

Bring on the Colder Weather, Baby!

First off, I am that guy who will keep his windows open when the temperature is in the 40s at night. Just me typing that makes some of you shiver, huh? Look, after a summer where it was one of the hottest on record, my electric bill needs a break and I’m tired of sweating.Continue reading “Bring on the Colder Weather, Baby!”

Weaned off Facebook, Hooked on Instagram

Once upon a time in like, 2011, I downloaded Instagram because somebody mentioned it to me. I was in college, so I already had a Facebook page, two Twitter accounts (one personal, one for my student media stuff). At that time, I really didn’t use Instagram much. Fast forward seven years after I moved fromContinue reading “Weaned off Facebook, Hooked on Instagram”

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 0-2Continue reading “There’s One Reason to Smile as a Steelers Fan This Week”

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 toContinue reading “Introduce the Democratic Candidates Like the 90s Chicago Bulls”

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 thatContinue reading “The Joy and Anguish of Being a Notre Dame Fan”

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 getContinue reading “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of FBS-FCS Week 1 Matchups”

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,Continue reading “Taking a Step Back From Sports”

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 fromContinue reading “My Love/Hate Relationship with Air Conditioning”

30 Thoughts Before 30: The Final Countdown

I Regret Making Fun of People Who Drank Muscle Milk I finally got back on a lifting regiment I actually like over a month ago and knew I probably wasn’t getting enough protein in my diet.
