Win an NFL TeenyMates Quarterback Gift Set

NFL Teenymates

I love, love, love this time of year. Fall is most definitely my favorite season and not just because the leaves change color and the temperatures cool down. Uh uh. It’s because everything moves into full-on NFL mode! Sundays are no longer “chore days” or even the most feared day of the week, since it […]

Attending My 16-Year-Old Nephew’s Book Signing


This weekend was a pretty darn good one. Gorgeous weather. The Yanks crushed the Red Sox 14-4. Marvel’s DareDevil came out on Netflix. Oh, and I attended a book signing for my 16-year-old nephew Matthew. Yep, I’ve written about Matthew’s book Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers: An Introduction to Baseball History before. A huge baseball […]

McFarland USA Review: Race to the Theater Now


I hate running. Let me just get that out of the way first. My wife’s a fan and has a few 5Ks under her belt, as well as a half marathon. Me? I can barely run 1 mile without getting a massive stitch in my side, resulting in me doubling over and sitting on the […]

Win the Million Dollar Arm Blu-ray/DVD Combo (Ends 10/20)


When I was a kid, I remember watching the Million Dollar Man on TV. Loved that show. Well, apparently inflation’s been working overtime because nowadays all you’ll get for a million bucks is an arm.

I Think I’ve Found the Next Nolan ‘Ryan’

Ryan on the Rays

Last weekend, Ryan played in his second Little League game ever. And I couldn’t be prouder. This is actually his first year playing Little League. He came to Allie and I asking to play, so how could we even think of saying no? Yes, we asked him a zillion times to be sure, informing him […]

Big Papi

In case you didn’t know it, I’m a New York Yankees Fan. Yes, I bleed pinstripes. And after this season… oof, there’s plenty of bleeding going on.

My Baseball-Loving 14-Year-Old Nephew Was on Fox 5 News Today!

Matthew Nadel

Proud Uncle time. I’ve written about my 13-year-old nephew Matthew before. (Actually, he turns 14 tomorrow!). Matthew is a baseball trivia maniac. Know who won the 1947 World Series? How about the 1971 one? Honestly, I have no clue. Go Google it if you want. But Matthew, yeah he knows who won the World Series. […]

My Pittsburgh Steelers Damn It Doll

Steelers Damn It Doll

Today is officially the last day of the NFL season. Week 17. Next week starts the crazy roller coaster known as the playoffs. And today for the first time in a long time, the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing a completely meaningless game. They were having a fairly solid season, getting real strong at the right time and […]
