Every now and then you watch something that has the potential to be an absolute life changer. Based on the recommendation by a good friend of mine, I sat down last night and watched The Game Changers on Netflix. It couldn't have come at a better time for me, frankly. Essentially, it's about world...

In what feels like the longest managerial search in MLB history (it isn't), my wife casually threw out the idea that we should look at the rumored candidates zodiac signs, to see who may be the best fit as the next Padres skipper. By the way, this is what happens when you marry a California girl...

Howdy all...it's been a while since I've written a blog, so here's today's account of what I've been watching, reading, listening to, etc. With a week off and having a lot of time to myself, I was able to start a new show on HBO, Succession, which is fantastic. It's really good, but I've been...

In today's totally voluntary blog, I'll definitely continue to take a page from my cohost's playbook and just list stuff that I like, except I won't be doing golf courses since I hate golf and am pretty terrible at it. Despite all that's going on in sports these days with Andy Green getting fired,...

Hello friends, It's been a couple of weeks since I've blogged, thanks to Labor Day and another excuse I gave my boss, so I definitely wanted to get back to it this week. Mostly because it's totally voluntary and I adore blogging. So much. Also, I figured that if my cohost, the beloved Ben Higgins,...

We all know that the NFL has an image problem. That's not really news. Domestic violence is prevalent. Performance-enhancing drug violations. Protests. Arrests. The President tweeting negatively about it. CTE. And yet it marches on. It gathers no moss as it continues to roll down the proverbial...

I'm not sure what inspired me to rent this movie on iTunes last night. Probably the title? Maybe Sofia Vergara? At any rate, I think I may have found the worst baseball movie ever?! I'm hesitant to just completely crap all over anyone's creative outlet. Somewhere there's a guy who wrote it. Is...

I was going to do my top ten adult league baseball fields in honor of my cohost Ben listing all of his favorite North County golf courses, but I decided that MAY be a touch annoying. But seriously though..if you like good, competitive baseball, I can't recommend our league enough. Go sign up at...

You won't be surprised to hear this from me, a known baseball honk, but there is no more magical game than the game of baseball. Other sports have their moments, certainly: Drew Brees and the Saints winning the Super Bowl after Hurricane Katrina. The Miracle on Ice. Willis Reed. These are great...
