So you want to coach DePaul basketball

March 18, 2010


Quick. Raise your hand if you’re under 30, love college basketball, and can remember when DePaul basketball was actually good. Can’t do it? Neither can I. DePaul basketball in my basic lifetime has had only short periods of greatness with players like Quentin Richardson and Bobby Simmons, guys who made it to the NBA. Not […]

How to survive your night class

January 20, 2010


Last Monday, while many of you who read this column spent your Monday evening celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, yours truly spent four grueling hours in Intro to Sociology, a class that yours truly need in order to become a Christian Brothers alum. During that whole class, I spent a lot of […]

Hug a what day?

Thanks again to Felicia Lee for dropping by to talk about Leadership Memphis on today’s show. Only problem was the fact that the episode wasn’t saved to the archives, so you guys have to use your imagination on what we discussed during the hour today.

The road Getwell, located to the east of the Mound, was named because of the old Army hospital […]

Go ham on 'em, Cards

August 18, 2009


What the Yankees are to the American League, the Cardinals and Dodgers are to the National League, storied franchises with a winning tradition. The two franchises are counted for 38 National League championships and 16 World Series titles as well as participants of some of the most thrilling pennant races in the 1940’s, when the […]

Chocolate curse strikes in Atlanta

January 5, 2009


It’s weird that the first column that I will write for the new year will have a focal point on something that I’ve known to be true over the last three years. As some of you may know, during the 2006 baseball season I met a chocolate cutie down at the corner of South Third […]
