Buy My House!

My family and I are having to move closer to the city and will be leaving our beautiful home in Monroe.  It’s priced to sell ($525k) with new carpet and a fresh coat of paint.  Everything has been moved out and it’s ready to move in! Also, if you come without a realtor, we’ll give…

Priceline – Bait & Switch strategy

I’m going to be traveling to Milwaukee next week and am looking to rent a vehicle while there.  Priceline caught my eye while on LinkedIn with some unbelievable pricing. Wow!  $22 a day and even $20 a day but that can’t be the Milwaukee airport could it?  So I clicked the link and saw that…

The Iowa Law

Not long ago I remember some of my friends mocking me for suggesting that law would regulate what preachers can say from the pulpit. Preachers being arrested for what others called “hate speech.”  My friends called me crazy and that gay marriage has nothing to do with me – or the church. Well, as I predicted,…

My Super Bowl 50 Prediction

I’ve been wrong about the Carolina Panthers all season and every playoff game this year so Panther fans will be elated to read this post.  I think my picks have something to do with me not wanting to see a team like this be successful, a team that disrespects the game by taking photos on the sideline…

Down 20-7 we comeback and win 21-20!

“Time-Out” I shouted from the sideline.  One of the players as they walked by said, “we can’t do it, they are just too tall!” “OK,” I said, “I’m going to grab the ref and tell him we forfeit, that we don’t want to play because the other team is too tall.” “No, we want to…

Last night at Basketball practice…

I coach three basketball teams this year at the YMCA.  The Midnight Wolves, Colt’s team, are ages 5-6.  Luke plays on the Golden Cheetahs, ages 7-9, and Taya hoops it up with the 10-12 year old Team Impact. This is Luke’s fourth year playing, he’s 8 years old, and during last night’s scrimmage asked me…

The Cam Newton Debate

I’m not a fan of Cam Newton and apparently I’m not alone.  What I find fascinating though is the debate going on regarding the color of his skin. What?  The color of his skin?  Race?  This is what it has come to, race?  Currently, I’m listening to Skip and Stephen A on First Take talking…

Why I’m a Filmmaker

I love movies.  I love eating popcorn. These two admissions is not why I’m a filmmaker. The other day I sat to watch a movie.  Had my popcorn in hand with just the right amount of salt and surprisingly the previews were still playing.  Normally I arrive a little late and miss the previews. It was…

2016 Playoffs Arizona vs Carolina

Arizona Cardinals (14-3) at Carolina Panthers (16-1) The Carolina Panthers escaped with a win last week over the Seattle Seahawks after building a 31-0 lead.  The difference in this game will be the opposing team will not be playing with a 10am body clock AND the condition of the field won’t be a secret.  I…

2016 Playoff Predictions New England vs Denver

New England Patriots (13-4) at Denver Broncos (14-3) Championship Sunday and no Seahawks.  You can understand I’m not as motivated to write my predictions.  😀 I have no rooting interest in this game but believe the Broncos rush will get to Brady all game and Broncos QB Peyton Manning will dink and dunk his way…

Thoughts on Seahawks loss to Panthers

Pete Carroll rides the ‘you can’t win in the first, second, and third quarter’ mantra.  This causes the Seahawks to start slow in more games than not.  It affects our play calling but the belief behind it has given us memorable games  (never losing by more than ten points since Russell Wilson got here).  I…

2016 Playoff Predictions Seattle vs Carolina

Seattle Seahawks (11-6) at Carolina Panthers (15-1) Game Day.  Finally.  Although I’m bitter that we have to play another 10am body clock game I’m encouraged that it only bothers me.  The Seahawks don’t talk about or dwell on the negative. The Carolina Panthers are coming off their best season in franchise history winning 15 games…
