If you are reading this and you are under 65, God bless you and all you stand for. If you are 65 plus, you will appreciate this, and perhaps you have experienced something similar. You know how they call the times of being a senior citizen “The Golden Years”? I’m going to add two words, […]

Recently, I accomplished one of my bucket list items, a list far from complete but worth checking off. Still on that list, staying in broadcasting to age 71, making fifty years in the business, the Good Lord Willing and I don’t lose my job or die…that looks good so far. I also want one more […]

Every one of you has had to do something at least once that we never thought about doing before, or were happy to do it when we knew we would have no choice, and not doing it could hurt us in the long run. Have you ever, for example, stayed at a crap job because […]

No matter who you are, we all have certain “moments” in our lives. Some are expected, some unexpected. Some are happy, some considered “WTF”. All have some sort of meaning. These “moments start when you’re young and continue until you assume room temperature. If you think about it, your life creates “moments” for others, even […]

In sports, it’s called “an audible”, a last-minute change to a planned action. I was to discuss the death of country music superstar Naomi Judd, due to her struggle with mental illness, that made her eat a gun and commit suicide.

As I write this on Easter Sunday, I want to share something that has roots going back thousands of years, but for my family, it’s something we’ve participated in for at least fifteen years.

This is definitely an observation, I hope it’s not rambling, but for sure I am cranky, also angry and very sad. When I first started writing this article, Art Fredette told me, “No politics.” I plan to stand firm to that, and as much as I can I will not be finger pointing or flag […]

This month, I chat about an issue that has exploded in New York. A lot of people have been, are or will take advantage of it, but for me, it’s a turn off and I’ll tell you why. Online gambling is now approved in the state. Instead of fantasy leagues, casinos, OTB, or maybe Saturday […]

Greetings all, hope you’re surviving 2022 as best as possible. Personally, I always feel optimism at the start of each new year, then before you know it, it goes right down the crapper. Technically the flush happened about a week from Christmas, but the pain still lingers. When you’re an old bastard like me, you […]

Happy New Year! Fingers crossed this year will be better than last. Funny, we said that last year, how did that work out? Let’s just hope. I start off this column with a question for those who are old farts like me. Not looking for an answer, but maybe it’s crossed your mind as well […]
