Can’t Believe I’m Living In…

Sometimes it hits me at the strangest times. Like last week as I drove back from the grocery store. I just crossed the intersection of Bienville Street and Galvez Street and caught a very brief glimpse of the skyline through a clearing in the trees. “I’m living in New Orleans.” I honestly said it out loud…

CONCACAF Gold Cup And My Sports Bucket List

By the time you read this, I’ll already be on my way — or already have been — to the Georgia Dome to watch the semifinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The first game pits the United States against Jamaica; Mexico takes on Panama in the second clash. Tickets have been sold out for more…

As soon as I crossed into Georgia, I had to take a picture behind the sign. Call me a tourist (or a resident).

Happy One Year Anniversary, Tyler Mayforth and Georgia

Allow this to be a disclaimer for this post: I have no idea how I’m going to format it. Most likely it will be a free-form type where I just post running thoughts. Anyway… I don’t know when it was, but I recently celebrated my one-year anniversary living in Georgia. Yes, I, Tyler Mayforth, have…

Traveling, Savannah and Family Time

I’m fascinated by travel. New places. Old places. It doesn’t matter. More specifically, I’m enthralled with the means of how we get to our destination. Hundreds of years ago, it would take days or weeks to travel between major cities. Now, you can just drive your car, get on a plane, hop on a train…

Flash Floods and Severe Weather, Oh My!

Less than one month after I moved to Georgia, I shot out of bed early in the morning to the sound of a siren. It honestly seemed like it was right outside of my window. When I first heard it, I couldn’t put a finger on what it meant. I opened my blinds and scoured…

Athens Georgia Sunset

Hi, Athens. It’s Been 10 Months

Dear Athens, How are you, my dear? It’s been about 10 months since we got serious and started our relationship. Time flies. I know. Who could have imagined a long-distance, online courtship that started back in April of 2014 would turn into what it is today? There was something different about you when I sent…

Scatterbrained, but for blogging that’s OK

As I watch the main event of WrestleMania 31 again — which was highly underrated, by the way — I’m trying to come up with something fascinating to write. I figure it had been long enough since my last post and in order to keep whoever reads this blog entertained, I must keep on a…

From Afternoon to Morning, Nothing Changes

While I’m nestled in Athens, Georgia, I still keep tabs on San Marcos, Texas. How could I not? I spent nearly seven years of my life in that town. Of particular interest to me is the quality of work my former assistant does (I’m proud of hiring him and want to see him succeed) as…

Wednesday Night Means Trivia Night in Georgia

What do a Mushroom Swiss burger and all-or-nothing trivia questions have in common? More than you think, actually. Back in Texas, there was a restaurant called Tap Room. It had 42 beers on tap, but more importantly some of the best burgers known to man. Every Thursday and Sunday, the Tap Room had incredible specials….

March Madness and Spring in Georgia

Forget December: March is the most wonderful time of the year. Spring has sprung, birds are chirping and it hit 80 degrees in Athens, Georgia. Plus, it’s time for the annual event where my bracket gets shot to pieces and I lose all but two of my Sweet 16 picks by the “third” round — or…
