My new host city of Chicago. This sports crazed town has shown me people like me exist. You know, those people who talk sports all day like that's all that's going on in the world. One thing I quickly found out, was the Bulls are a big, big deal here; regardless of record. I watched... Continue Reading →
So this is a quick piece on a side project of a bigger project I have going on. My Lair (because I hate the term "Man Cave") is being transformed (by yours truly) and I'm getting the entrance together first. As in the stairs, the the walls leading down, and of course the hand rails.... Continue Reading →
After many half assed, half hearted, not so sure what I want to do attempts — I'm doing something to the lawn. Next week I'll start seeding the grass, and hedging bushes, but this weeks project was all about the backyard pavers. Combined with the garage, this walkway, separates the grass and gives off the...

Always being expected to be the entertainment begets more of the same. So our kids don't aspire to be more, and no one expects anything more. I want better.
Life is an experience. We're all characters in this movie that we call life. However, not everyone is enjoying their roles. Some feel as though they are merely extras in this movie. Subconsciously, some of us don't even want to be in a leading role in our own life. Or, maybe some have no clue... Continue Reading →
If an individual can find an outlet that fundamentally distracts from everyday life, yet can still handle business, and that individual is happy — that’s all that matters.
So this is what it’s like to be a free agent in the NBA. Well, sort of.
I currently have a chance to choose my life’s path. To alter my future, for better or for worse. Three cities, three different directions in the road. I’m embracing a new way of thinking, and a new way of living. My friends, it’s time to enjoy life.
In a way I feel like my life has stalled since coming to Michigan. I’ve took a SIGNIFICANT pay cut, and admittedly, I’ve been very slow on warming up to the culture and adapting to the change of pace.
It hasn’t been all bad here. In the last couple of months or so, I have felt more and more like an adopted son of Detroit (yes that’s a good thing), as I’ve found myself really appreciating Detroit, and the slower pace. Letting Detroit be Detroit, and not…

Andrew Wiggins says he's worth a max contract. Yet, he and the young Timberwolves disappointed last season after exorbitantly high expectations.
After the original season opening game was postponed, due to inclement weather, a little anticipation was built up. Dare say antsy-ness. We’ve waited six months, what’s one more day?
The Tigers and White Sox game didn’t disappoint. There was action, damn near from the opening pitch. Or maybe I was just excited.
The White Sox wasted little time getting on the board. In the bottom of the first, with a man on first base, Melky Caberra stepped to the plate. He hit a line drive to right field, driving in Tyler Saladino and his mustache, and although Saladino scored, Melky got thrown out going for the triple.
At the top of the second inning, the Tigers had men on first and third with no outs. 24 year old Jacoby Jones steps to the plate, making his first Major League debut. One would think he would be nervous, under the bright lights, and hype of…
