 Not to sound like fool or a sexist jerk, but an old friend of mine and I coined this back in college. It was not for the faint of heart, and one had to build a bankroll to do it right. At the end of the day, if you broke even you were probably doing […]

What’s On My Mind?

We live in a time when people sit in the same room and have a smart phone, iPad, or some sort of techno distraction as we no longer communicate. My girlfriend plays a game on her phone about trivia, and my son texts to his friends. I asked what they wanted to watch, and nobody answered back. […]

Ranting, Raging, and Shoveling Snow

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of winter. Take it all back. I don’t want to go sled riding, take part in a snow ball fight, or even make snow cream. I want this crap to melt, or be sent off somewhere there’s a drought. OK, I think I’m done for a little while. […]

I was having dinner with a friend of mine. She is a TV producer, and we were talking about the talking heads that bring us  information. Our conversation turned into a battle of the sexes.

When I heard that TVG was letting some of the most talented on-air players leave through the backdoor, it was hard to believe.  In the beginning, it was silly and sophomoric.
