2013-14 NFL Football : What Will You Remember?

January 21, 2014

For the first time since 2005, I’m genuinely looking forward to watching the Super bowl. That year, my beloved Philadelphia Eagles fell short in Super bowl 39 to the New England Patriots. We came darn close to capturing our fourth NFL title. That’s right, professional football was being played, and was relevant– even rings were… read more

Autumn Bound : A Summer for the Books

September 17, 2013

With just four days left until Autumn kicks the door in, I recently had a moment to reflect back on a Summer that turned out to be one of the most playful and gratifying in recent years. From concerts to ball games, camping to Micky Mouse, Sunset Boulevard to Yosemite, the last 14 weeks have… read more

“The Beard” in LA : Let The Jokes Begin

July 31, 2013

It was in the wee hours of July 21 that my morning co-host exposed me to the now viral, shirtless selfie of 70-year-old Geraldo Rivera. As visually horrific and mystifying as that experience was, it was a Tuesday sports headline that ultimately triggered my gag reflex. The Los Angeles Dodgers this week offered former San… read more

Twitter Say What?

May 15, 2013

I’ve gotten to know the customized message alert tone of my 11-year-old daughter’s IPOD pretty well since her grandfather bought it for her 16 months ago. It has become just another routine, household sound , much like the tick of our coffee table clock, the creak of the kitchen door, or the frequent snort from the family bulldog. More times than… read more

Hoops Withdrawal

March 28, 2013

And then there were sixteen. So far, the 2013 NCAA men’s basketball tournament has been pleasantly burdensome. My home has felt less like a place of decompression, and more like the main trading floor at 11 Wall Street. The phones have been non-stop, with hours of excited, incoherent, Bud Light-fueled gibberish logged from friends and… read more

Nevada County : What Bucket List?

February 26, 2013

We all know California is widely known for its breathtaking coastline. Destinations such as Monterey,Venice, Laguna Beach, Carmel, Huntington Beach, Point Reyes, Santa Barbara and Point Loma, are all visited by millions of people every year. As great as these spots are, I’ve come to realize in recent years that the true hidden gem in this great state… read more

Baseball : Antidote for the Mundane

February 12, 2013

This morning began just like any other. I arrived at work shortly after five o’clock to prepare for my air shift. This generally consists of downloading various show content, researching local events, scanning for celebrity misadventures, and compiling my daily list of outlandish, nationally-trending stories. “Man Shoots Self In Groin With Flare Gun,” “Woman Pulls Semi-Automatic At Chucky E. Cheese,” “Florida Teen… read more

Winter…I See You.

December 5, 2012

The generic wall calendar in my office, which hangs from a tired, blemished, solo purple push pin, doubles as both my organizer and rolodex. It has rescued me from countless mental omissions. Throughout the course of a work day, I probably lift my head to it with the same frequency a carnival High Striker operator does to the bell… read more
