Blame Cannada

Making a call

We need a decision.

It’s time to make a plan for the fall.

I know it’s controversial. I know it won’t make everybody happy. But we have to have a decision.

I can’t recall sports

On February 29, North Carolina played what turned out to be one of the final live sporting events.

I say final because I’m not sure if we’ll ever see sports again. That’s how it feels, at least.

I was very jazzed up for this game. My beloved Tar Heels had to win or their chances at making the NCAA Tournament would be over.

Stick to sports

Athletes, coaches and even sports journalists (sometimes) are often told to “stick to sports.”

It’s usually related to political discussions. Sports fans who say this just want to watch a game and ignore things like that.

"Charlie no like it.”

These are my 2-year-old’s most frequently used words.

This is how Penny tries to manipulate her way out of sharing something. Yummy popsicle? Charlie no like it. Shiny, new fire truck toy? Charlie no like it. Television show that Penny doesn’t agree with? Charlie no like it.

They go to work early. They stay late. They look after your children and spend countless hours finding ways to better educate them. They sacrifice time with their own families so they can spend time with yours.

We owe a lot to our teachers, and we should show them how much we appreciate them this week.

Tough football

I’ve been to a lot of high school football practices.

In fact, when I was just a lad, I participated in a lot of high school football practices.

Before I write this next part, let me check and see if there are any kids on my lawn….

Ok. All clear.
