Here is the view from my seat in Section 614. It was a hike to get up there. Needed a Sherpa.

A Rainy Day With The Bayou Bengals

Cross another stadium — and sports experience — off the list. On Saturday I ventured to Baton Rouge, Louisiana — and more importantly, Tiger Stadium — to watch Louisiana State University (or LSU) face Western Kentucky University (WKU). For a half it seemed as if the Hilltoppers were ready to play up to the Tigers,…

House of Shock and Halloween Happenings

Ten-year-old me was a pansy. I’m going to call it as I see it. My aunt always took me and my twin sister on little excursions and during one October weekend, she decided we were old enough to try our hand at one of the scariest haunted houses in the nation — the Eastern State…

Kickball Recap 2: Crank That 2-0

Halfway through what turned out to be a 17-5 win for “Big Black Balls,” the team formerly known as “Free Kicks” (Yeah, I don’t know either. We batted around the idea of “Stranger Danger,” which I liked a lot more), “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” by none other than Soulja Boy blared over the Bluetooth speaker…

Kickball Recap 1: Coming Through In The Clutch

Right before I stepped to the plate for my final at-bat of my team’s season opener in kickball on Wednesday, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was the umpire assigned to officiate our game. “Look, I don’t want to put any additional pressure on you right now, but look at your team.” He pointed…

This isn't where kickball will be played. I just like the picture I took.

Getting Ready To Kick(Ball) It In New Orleans

The wait is over. Prepare yourself, PlayNOLA. Next week, your fearless blogger (That’s me, in case you don’t know) will hopefully play in his first Adult Kickball League game in New Orleans. I say hopefully, because right now I’m a “free agent.” I’d like to consider myself the LeBron James of Kickball and that hundreds…

Who Dat: The Story of My First Saints Game

Who Dat!? Am I doing that right? Good. So I went to my first Saints game tonight. It was a religious experience. Seriously, I saw the Pope. All right, not that pope — but it was one of four or five “Saints Popes,” who are mainstays in the Superdome and sit in the same section….

Memory Lane, Griak Invitational and Facebook Feature Friday

Who could have thought a simple series of Facebook posts for work would send me down memory lane these past two Fridays? Well, I did as soon as I started working on the second part of our “Facebook Feature Friday” series two weeks ago. For a little background, I made it my mission about one…

Catching Up Since the Move to New Orleans

New Orleans. Wow. I never thought I’d call The Big Easy home. Hell, if you told me after I graduated from the University of Delaware that within the next eight years I’d live in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Texas, Georgia and Louisiana, I wouldn’t have believed you. Life takes you where it damn well pleases….

Sky Photography: There Are 1,000 Words Up There

For some reason — and I can’t name it — I always have been fascinated with the sky. I never wanted to be a pilot to soar through the clouds or a meteorologist to know what was going on up there, but something about it called me. It’s just one of those things that you…

Banner Herald Box

Clark Kent Left the Daily Planet

It started to hit me when I turned off my computer for the last time at the Athens Banner-Herald. Rarely did I turn it off before (mostly logged out), but it felt right. Once I walked out the door and it shut behind me, the realization hit like a truck. That very well could have…
