Blame Cannada

Bucket list

A lot of people say Times Square is the place to be on New Year’s Eve, but I would venture to say none of those people have actually been to Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

A week ago, that’s where I was.

Bowl season and change

Last year at this time, I was complaining about bowl season. But what we’ve got now may be far worse.

I’m as big a college football fan as you’ll find. I can sit on the couch for hours on any given Saturday, absorbing as much of the sport as my brain can possibly take. While I love college football, I hate how it’s governed.

The first time I met Dorian Lindsey, he was gasping for air. It was a brutally hot summer day and, like any other good coach, Will Young had his guys out on the track running sprints.

Dorian and his teammates were beginning a season that was a big question mark in the minds of a lot of faithful Jacket backers.

Happy anniversary

Warning: mushy love column ahead. If you want to stop reading, here’s your chance…

Three years ago today (Dec. 17), my wife Shannon made me the luckiest guy on planet Earth.

I recently heard Mike & Mike discussing preferred rule changes in sports, and I think I have a few of my own. Here’s a few quick ways to make our games more fun to watch.

In good hands

You could do a whole lot worse than Brian Lane, Rebel fans.

Throughout the course of his first season as head coach, I’ve seen him take initiative and overachieve on the field, but that’s not what makes him unique.

Home décor

Decking the halls is more difficult than it seems.

My wife and I, as we do each year, have been celebrating Christmas for quite some time now. We’ve already cranked up the holiday tunes, watched Home Alone 37 times and gone shopping for a few early Christmas gifts.

There are times in life when you don’t know you’re getting carried away until you take a few steps back from the situation.

Last Thursday was one of those times.

My co-worker, Mandy Ferguson, and I were several levels deep into a zombie shooting game at Dave & Buster’s when we were informed our gaming was causing a problem.

Christmas so soon?

There are two types of people in this world.

There are those that could celebrate Christmas for six months each year and not blink an eye and there are those that will lose their marbles if you try to get holly jolly before Black Friday.

There’s really no in between.

A look back

If you can believe it, we’re already at the tail end of another high school football season.

We’ve seen some incredible performances over the last 10 weeks, and as we get set for playoffs to start Friday, I thought this would be a good time to reflect on some of the season’s best moments.
