Baseball and the start of a new summer
Though most know me as a huge football fan -- most notably a giant Green Bay Packers fan -- what you may not know about me is that baseball has always been the sport that has tugged at my heartstrings. And with the Packers doing next to nothing in NFL free agency while we await the...

Make a difference: It could be the difference

Twas the Night Before Christmas and the fix was in
I have a good, good friend, let’s call him Joey, not to protect his privacy, but because that’s his name. He is the kind of fellow other fellows admire - a man’s man. He’s smart in a funny kind of way, loyal like your best retreiver and has one of the biggest hearts I have...

First day of School: A rollercoaster of emotions
