Column: Disappointment and Desperation

The NFL season isn’t even halfway, and two cities with great expectations are already panicking.  No, not the Dolphins. Part of the reason Adam Gase is coaching in New York and not Miami is because he disagreed with the franchise’s idea to tank the 2019 season. Enter former New England Patriots defensive coordinator, Brian Flores, […]

Three Point Stance

Isn’t it fascinating that only three of baseball’s ten highest-paid players are still playing in October? Two of them are pitchers and one will have played fewer games this past season than your average starting NFL edge rusher.  If you guessed Clayton Kershaw, the ageless Justin Verlander, and the useless Giancarlo Stanton, you’d be correct.  […]

The History...the breakdown

I attended a luncheon this past week and it was mentioned that probably 90% of Wayne County residents, especially of the millennium age, know ‘Jack Squat’ about Wayne County. For instance, Wayne County is named for American Revolutionary War hero and American statesman., General Anthony Wayne (AKA Mad Anthony) Wayne died in 1796 while on […]

Column: Newer Rules

This writer has a new streaming show called “Overtime” on Roc Sports Network. You can “like” Roc Sports Network on Facebook and catch the show Monday nights at 7. Longtime comic and political satirist, Bill Maher, has hosted a show called “Real Time” on HBO for well over a decade and not only has an […]

I love you honey, but...

On Tuesday night Wife Patti and myself went to see the musical La Cage aux Folles at GEVA Theater. Before the show we went to Kaino’s Greek Restaurant, located on the Genesee River at 284 Exchange Boulevard in Rochester. The restaurant bills itself as the Only Authentic Greek/Mediterranean Cuisine with some American Flare. Trust me, […]

Dramatic soybeans (9/8/19)

Soooo, what could I possibly write about soybeans? That innocuous little bean that has such an impact on our lives. Admit it, while growing up, did any of us know anything about soybeans? According to soybean history, they originated in China and in 2853 Emperor Sheng-Nung of China named five sacred plants – soybeans, rice, […]

Conscience

Play along with me here. Imagine a child, alone in a room, just standing there. Okay, now put that in the back of your mind and I will continue. These are some   Facebook notifications I have received recently. Why should we fund immigrant health care, while our veterans suffer with poor health care? Actually, […]

Column: Why Governor Andrew Cuomo is an idiot

Oh, let me count the ways... Anybody reading this column on a regular basis knows there are two top politicians I consider pure idiots. One is Republican President Donald Trump and the other is New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo. Yes, there are many more idiots, but these two top the pile. This column however, […]

Column: Blame Game

Cue the blame! Cue the outrage! Cue the hyperbole! Andrew Luck, once can’t-miss NFL quarterback prospect, the man pegged to replace Peyton Manning, decided enough was enough, and at 29 years-old, called it quits. There have been some shocking retirements over the years. Jim Brown. Barry Sanders. Joe DiMaggio. Calvin Johnson. Prime of their careers. […]

Column: The Reunion

So I went to my 50th High School reunion a couple of weeks ago. To be honest, I really did not want to go, but Wife Patti kept pushing me as soon as the invites came over last year in preparation for the EVENT. I was only at Eastridge (in East Irondequoit) for two years, […]
