    I was shooting hoops with my little brother the other day when he posed to me a question as loaded as a room full of NRA supporters. “Why do people love sports?” I stopped mid-dunk and for once was at a loss for words. “Uh, I’m not really sure,” I replied. He did not question me any fu...

    Walking into school on my first day of 5th grade was going to be hard enough. My summer had been gloriously spent playing wiffleball in the backyard and eating variously delicious frozen treats. I did not want to come back to school. In fact, in my mind, I already knew everything I would ever need t...

    There have been only a certain few basketball coaches who can step onto the hardwood, spread their wisdom, and (with a little luck) win a championship. Coaches dream of being hoisted onto their team’s shoulders and paraded around the court like a king. Looking down at the smiling faces of the 2nd ...

    I recently got into a wreck the other day. It was not my fault, of course. The blame rests on an elder gentleman who was not watching where he was going. Am I okay? Am I still a handsome devil? Yes, thanks for asking. I’m perfectly fine due to the fact that this was no ordinary crash. This furiou...

    In our family we enjoy our time off from the stress and worries during the year. Summer is freedom and we enjoy pretty much every minute we can get. As with most families we usually take little family trips to various locations to get away from the monotony of living in one place. The only problem i...

    Besides that earlier wonderful experience I have had other dalliances with women. The problem with me and relationships is God seems to find it amusing to make sure I fall for girls who either I have absolutely no chance with or like me for a little while then wake up from a trance and decide being ...

    Besides have clothing issues I took care of myself pretty well in my younger days. My family back then consisted of my dad, mom, sister, and myself. This was before my brother was born and before our house started having a weird smell. (I’m positive the two events are somehow related). I have alwa...

    The bags are packed, the snacks for the road distributed, and the last doses of Aspirin are swallowed as we begin our fourteen hour car drive to the great state of Michigan. Our family makes this trek every summer to go visit grandparents, and other members of the family, all of whom were clearly sm...

    I was just 7 years old when I first heard of a magical place where little boys and girls’ dreams came true. An infamous classmate of mine, Jerry Gonslick, had returned to school after missing a few glorious days, during which we all believed he had finally taken everyone’s advice, and died. A ga...

    There are few pleasures in life I enjoy more than eating a meal at a restaurant. The whole concept is just absolute brilliance. It’s late and you’re tired, too exhausted to fix a meal, so why not pay other people to make the dish for you? All you have to do is sit there and tell them what you ...

    Every year millions of little boys and girls, all around the world, reach that magical stage in their lives where they can finally compete in organized sports. Whether the sport is Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Rock-Paper-Scissors, Curling, or even Cup Stacking, there is a sport for everyo...

    I’ve known many people who have been afraid of some weird stuff. For instance, after encountering a small ladybug on her leg, a lady friend of mine (and I am not making this up) screamed and cursed profusely, sprinted off into a wild direction, all without actually physically removing the bug from...

    I was looking at around a ten to twenty year sentence. I could probably survive prison; it couldn’t be as bad as it seemed. The black and white stripes might be a good look for me. My mom and dad could visit every so often. Hey, maybe I wouldn’t even have to clean my room! That would be fantasti...

    Music has always played a large role in my life. My parents seemed to always be blasting the stereo when I was little, whether it was three in the afternoon or three in the morning. In 5th grade I decided that it was my life’s calling to become the next Bruce Springsteen. I politely informed my pa...

    The beginnings of one’s life are pretty odd. See, they are usually the years that decide your path (your parents discover whether their child is as fast in the brain as an obese man is at running or if they, by chance, have a baby genius on their hands). The young years also are ones of first spee...

    The problem with me and relationships is God seems to find it amusing to make sure I fall for girls who either I have absolutely no chance with or like me for a little while then wake up from a trance and decide being attracted to me is about the same as being attracted to a saber toothed tiger.

    We’ve all done it. You are in a retail store, supermarket, etc and suddenly that urge rumbles up your body like the first tremors of an earthquake. Your eyes dart around, searching desperately for the universal sign of a stick man and woman. They always inconveniently hide the restrooms in the dee...
