Earlier today I sent a couple of texts to my sister and wife expressing to them that I found myself in a place where there was so much that I wanted to say but couldn’t convince myself to actually write. In one sense, I didn’t want to say anything before I’d had long enough to digest everything […]

Over the past few months I’ve found myself reading biographies on people that lived well before modern times. One of the things that struck me as particularly interesting was the way writers went about gathering information on their subjects. There were no TV interviews to watch, no documents left behind on the internet, and no living relatives […]

Chiefs vs Steelers

There seems to be a theme going on with my favorite football teams opponents this weekend. Yesterday, it was with WVU and today it shows up with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both of these teams found themselves matched up against opponents that are far from flashy but never beat themselves. I guess the good news is that Pittsburgh […]

Kansas State vs West Virginia

Hey now! The calendar reads October 1st and that can only mean one thing — the start of Big 12 play for the Mountaineers of West of Virginia. With Baylor the only other undefeated team in the Big 12, today’s matchup is as big as they come at this early point of the season for 3-0 WVU. […]

Steelers vs Eagles

You already know the story. Steelers defense vs a Rookie QB. Since 2004 Pittsburgh is 18-2 when facing a rookie QB with the only two losses coming against HOF bound Troy Smith and Brandon Weeden. If I were a betting man I’d say Carson Wentz will actually end up proving he knows how to throw […]

Game 3 is finally upon us with this week’s matchup taking place between the 1-2 BYU Cougars and 2-0 WVU Mountaineers. Annoyingly, the game will be taking place at FedEx field. Why? Who cares — there is no good reason for it. There is a saying that “stats don’t lie”. I’ve never believed that, but […]
