As I was driving my kids to school this morning, stuck in traffic, going away from the city I wondered to myself Why the hell do people live here? This is against traffic. Why am I always sitting in traffic? Where is everyone going all of the time? I thought to myself that if I MORE »
My son hates football. It doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, and really it isn’t, except I LOVE football. I love all sports. I run a sports blog. My happy place is sitting in a sunny stadium for 60,000 other people yelling my head off. I have seven fantasy football teams. I own MORE »
I can’t be the only person that is thrilled about summer being over, can I? There is something about August that makes me sketchy. It is some sort of backwards seasonal affective disorder. It can’t be the weather. I grew up in Florida. Every day was like August here in DC. I suspect it is MORE »
On Wednesday I visited a Washington D.C. landmark I had wanted to see for years. The Exorcist Steps. It got me thinking. These steps could not possibly be the only place where awesome movies were filmed. I mean, this is Washington D.C. We are pretty famous as far as cities go.

You guys FaceTime with your pets right? No? Just Skype? I ask (obviously) because due to being temporarily displaced (we are remodeling our house) my children have been separated from our cats for about three weeks. They wanted to check on and talk to the cats and so FaceTime seemed like the obvious answer.
Last week I told you that I got rid of the old bins in my kids’ rooms. Do you want to see what I replaced them with? You know you do. Check these out.
The Boys Scouts of America decided that they needed to reaffirm their position excluding gays (their word choice) from leadership and membership positions within the organization. Really, Boy Scouts? Your hateful policies weren’t bad enough? You felt the need to reaffirm them? I am appalled. I am disgusted. I am angry. I am also the MORE »
I have spent a shocking amount of my life watching television. That is just true. If you wanted to get specific I have actually spent over 100 hours watching “The West Wing” alone. Make that over 200 hours if you are talking about ESPN, and damn near a decade watching MTV. Remember when MTV used MORE »
