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…

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….

Nothing more American than the Wimberley VFW Rodeo

Nearly one year has passed since I moved to Georgia and in that time, I began to reflect on what I covered while in Texas and how it shaped me during that time. With the Fourth of July recently skipping by, I found it tough not to think back to the past five years when…

What UDXC/TF Really Meant To Me

I never expected to be a Division I athlete. Heck, as a high school freshman I was 5-foot-1, 105 pounds. If that. During freshman orientation at Mount Pleasant High School (Go Green Knights), they had tables set up in the library manned by various sports coaches.Scrawny me went up to the football table and got…

Georgia’s loss triggers flood of past sports memories

While watching Michigan State dispatch Georgia last weekend in the “second round” of the NCAA Tournament, I thought back to a few years ago when I went to the Round of 32 on a whim with my roommate. It was held at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, a 45-minute drive from where we lived in…
