Maybe it really is the journey

During the last few weeks, it has come to my attention that the journey is really the most important part. I tried to explain this to my 13 year old on Monday night as he watched Alabama pummel our team, Notre Dame. When I was at ND in the early 90s, we had an awesome football team. Until, of course, they met Boston College on one awful weekend during my senior year.

Day of Lo-o-o-o-ve

What a perfect quote to describe the awful … Read more…

We like the fall as much as the rise

The announcers were talking about the dominance of teams like the Yankees and the Red Sox and how the air time they get is not fair to the other good and better teams that don’t get as much. I think they were referring to the Texas Rangers not getting as much airtime but they are playing so well. One of the guys said we need the Yankees and … Read more…
