The Juxtaposition of the Modern NFL

You have to be a real sicko to be intently watching a 3rd quarter of any NFL preseason game. Panel van and untidy moustache type of sicko. Watches Schindler’s List on Christmas Eve type of sicko. Yet, there I sat last night, glued to my TV, taking detailed notes of every play from the Packers […]

Rashan Gary Is Going To Be Dangerous

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the movie TAPS and with it, the fourth decade of Tom Cruise being in our lives. Growing up a huge S.E. Hinton fan, I can remember first seeing Cruise in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film adaptation of The Outsiders. The Outsiders–holy smokes. What a cast?!? Patrick Swayze (RIP). Matt […]
