Pete Kadens U da MAN!

Karen had CBS Sunday Morning on and I caught the story of the non-profit called Hope Chicago and how they just changed the world. They have made the public offer to pay for high school students’ college education in five different high schools in Chicago. Room, board, books, the whole enchilada. There is no priceContinue reading “Pete Kadens U da MAN!”

Go You Reds!

I can’t help it. The one sports team that I will follow as often as I am able is the Manchester United Football Club. Ever since I watched Georgie Best, the mercurial striker for United beat Geoff Hurst and West Ham in 1967, I have been a loyal maniac for the lads whenever and whereverContinue reading “Go You Reds!”

Disagreement

At what point did disagreement cease to exist without threats, ill will, and violence entering the picture? I must have missed something. This topic for tonight’s blog (I really like to post at 12:01 am EST for consistency’s sake) came about because I was at a Christmas party and I will estimate the total guestContinue reading “Disagreement”

Bigger Than I Ever Knew

I am on record as saying my big brother Ed is one of my biggest heroes and I always wondered what it would be like to bear the responsibility of having a younger sibling. I had a chance to find out when I was in my late thirties. I was living in Norman, Oklahoma andContinue reading “Bigger Than I Ever Knew”

Games and Friends

I picked up a nice little Ibanez acoustic electric guitar today, and it felt good to make my fingertips sore again. I’ll have to find a place to practice. I would lose myself in one of the many green Metroparks, but it is just too damn muggy for that. Is anyone watching the Olympics? BigContinue reading “Games and Friends”

The Freakin’ Milwaukee Freakin’ Bucks and Maddogg’s Sport Report

Wow. I was so proud of my Desert Dogs as they clawed their way into the maelstrom that was the city of Milwaukee and Buck Nation for game six of the NBA Finals. Giannis. I’ll say it again. Wow. And the 65,000 maniacs outside Fiserv.com Arena? I am a believer now. And how about theContinue reading “The Freakin’ Milwaukee Freakin’ Bucks and Maddogg’s Sport Report”

Sportsmanship

I’m a bad loser. I know I am. I’m a little baby about it. I pout, whine, search for blame to assign, and otherwise am just an asshole when I lose. Now let me clarify. If I am in a race and there are three runners, I have to at least finish second to notContinue reading “Sportsmanship”
