The Night I Almost Died For Hillary Clinton

The following is a blog I wrote back in early 2008, when Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were still battling for the Democratic nomination for President. We all know how that ended up, but this is just an interesting backstory on my own brush with politics.

Bo-tterfly Effect: The Impact of Bo Jackson

Every now and then, I’ll come across a sports story that I assume everyone around me is familiar with. Then I realize, I’m an old bastard, and the guys around me are mostly in their 20s. So then I have storytime. It’s like when your grandpa tells you about the Heidi Game. I also figured most of my readers might not know these stories either, so here you go. This is the story of how certain decisions could have changed the course of several teams in several sports because of the impact of Bo Jackson and his presence or absence.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

I’m 40 years old, which means that my formative years (from 6-15 years old) were in the perfect Saturday Morning Cartoons time period of 1977-86. Five years earlier (1971) and there would have been way fewer cartoons available to watch on Saturday (there wasn’t even any electric back then!) And five later (1991), after the cable boom, and the Looney Tunes were already starting to be phased out by politically correct censors.

My Disney Poop Story

There are certain moments that seem to define your life. My trip to the bathroom at Disney about 10 years ago was one of those moments. This story is long, but the payoff is worth it. Don’t be discouraged just because it’s called a “poop story.”

It was a hot and humid day at the Magic Kingdom. I had just polished off a bread bowl full of clam chowder and the family decided to hit Splash Mountain.

Best Chips Ever Mock Draft

People that know me know I’m serious about three things: Dogs that look like people, “Three’s Company” fan fiction – and snack chips. There’s nothing worse than going to someone’s house for a party, and finding out their idea of the best chips ever is a half-open bag of store-brand potato chips, with some organic veggie chips that they claim, “Tastes like real food!”

Best World War II Movies of All Time: Mock Draft

Memorial Day is upon us once again, and we’re all asked to reflect and honor all of the fallen American soldiers that have died in wars. Outside of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in recent decades, my generation really doesn’t have much exposure to the World Wars, Korea or Vietnam – outside of the movies. But we all know World War II, which made me rank the best World War II Movies of all time.
