Trib Sports Radio (it’s a podcast!)

Jesus, take the wheel. That was what I was thinking when I first heard a podcast. Driving down Little Cottonwood Canyon with my friend Phil Nielsen, Erin and I white knuckled as Phil took turns at speed while screwing around with his iPod. He was trying to explain to me that I should be listening … Continue reading

Fish with Dynamite

There are two groups of people I am constantly amazed at. The first are white people who can flawlessly perform elaborate handshakes with black guys. The intricate movements usually resulting in a finger snap and a fist bump are amazing and I wish I could pull it off every time. Hell, I’d be satisfied to … Continue reading

It’s all I … Continue reading

Hashtag Hacky

Lord, oh Lordy, it’s been awhile! The blog has been down. The podcast is dead. My mid-section grows and my hair is thinning. I’m looking more and more like Peter Boyle without the sex appeal. Fortunately, my fair Irish skin has gotten every ray of UV in the 801 and my forehead is a beautiful, … Continue reading
