St. Charles Avenue sleeps in the mist as it awaits another busy week.

New Orleans Is Absolutely Beautiful

Let’s go to sleep in Paris/ Wake up in Tokyo/ HAVE A DREAM IN NEW ORLEANS/ Fall in love in Chicago Those lyrics by Lupe Fiasco in “Paris, Tokyo” bounced around my head as I walked back to my apartment from his concert* at Republic New Orleans this past weekend. Something caught my eye near…

Putting Up Numbers: USTFCCCA Website Style

Ever since I got out of newspapers and began working for the USTFCCCA in August of 2015, I had to figure out a new way to quantify my impact as an employee. In newspapers, particularly during my time as a page designer at the Athens Banner-Herald, I relied on certain benchmarks like how the elements…

This was a picture from the Usher concert. Shout out to the guy's head in front of me.

Macklemore, Usher and New Orleans, Oh My!

I love live performance art. Musicals? Been to several Broadway shows in my life, including The Lion King when it was sold out for months on end during its hey-day (Thanks a bunch, Grandma!). Plays? Don’t get me started on Dickens  (My family still laughs about it). Professional wrestling? Yes, that counts. It’s so different in person than…

That Was RAW-esome!

Nearly two hours into our excursion to Monday Night RAW last night, WWE ring announcer Lillian Garcia proclaimed that it was time for the fans to pull out all of the signs they brought to the Smoothie King Center and to show them off. Needless to say, it was my time to shine. Yes, I…

Back To Where It RAW Began

Finally, Tyler Mayforth is headed back to Monday Night RAW! Tomorrow night, I and two of my friends — as well as 17,997 of our closest buddies (if it’s sold out) — will head inside the Smoothie King Center to watch the live-action soap opera that is professional wrestling. You know what’s crazy? Well, other than…

Flipping The Calendar From 2015 To 2016

Once again I have been awful about updating this blog. December was quite a busy month around these parts. Before I knew it, January hit and that means 2016 came with it. Let’s backtrack a bit and fill you in on what happened in December. From December 10 until December 19, I was in San…

Witnessing The Greatness Of LeBron James

Count me as a believer. It took me a while, but I saw the light. LeBron James is THAT dude. Don’t get me wrong: I always knew LeBron was a special player. If you asked me to name the best player in the NBA right now, I’d waffle between him and Steph Curry before ultimately…

Kickball Recap 5: From Right Field, With Love

One out stood between us and the third seed in the playoffs. For us to have any hope at making the championship, that’s the seed we’d need. Coming into Wednesday, which was the final day of the regular season, we were in sixth place — but as fate would have it, the playNOLA Kickball scheduling gods smiled…

Kickball Recap 4: There is No Glory in Pitching

As I watched run after run after run after run (you get the idea) cross home plate last night in an eventual 15-2 loss by Big Black Balls, I realized there is no glory in pitching in kickball. The same can probably be said — and is probably said — about pitching in slow-pitch softball. No…

Kickball Recap 3: The Blackout

So there we were. “Big Black Balls” ready to play “Drunk, And Looking To Score.” We were 2-0, tied for first place in the league standings, while “Drunk And Looking To Score” was 1-1 and tied for second. I could sense we were ready to play well and a win would have put us in…
