One night a customer told me that if I didn't stop looking at him he was gonna knock me out. A couple of hours earlier he walked into the Wiggly Piggly without shoes on. He had on an old gray sweatshirt, jean shorts and didn't seem self-conscious to be going... Continue reading

I saw him on the street. I thought about inspecting him closer but decided not to because he might have noticed. As fate would have it, he boarded the bus and sat directly behind me. “God bless you,” he repeated to the man who'd given his seat. He was religious?... Continue reading

I was ringing up another customer when unintentionally I looked fiercely at the customer behind him. He stood mid-height, mid-sized, middle-aged. He was a gay black man with black thick-rimmed spectacles and a beige sports jacket on. I held my gaze a second longer to soften my face, give a... Continue reading

She had just had a foot massage. A life-changing foot massage. She said the masseuse was some kind of healer. She talked fast. Everything that crossed her mind tumbled out between her lips. She rushed around the shop, asking twice for help. At the checkout counter, she asked if she... Continue reading

An elderly woman came into the store today. She looked deeply into my eyes and told me I have got it goin’ on. She spread open her arms and looked quickly around as if awestruck by the surrounding beauty. She said the red hand baskets are stacked so neatly and... Continue reading

As a fan, it seems silly to me how a professional ball player could be so bad at free throws. With your game, hitting an extra couple free throws a game (from 4.5 out of 9 to 6.5 out of 9) would make a HUGE difference in your value. Improving... Continue reading

I'll admit, as an older cousin (28) to a younger (8) I sometimes introduce the younger generation to videos that may have a negative influence. But sometimes, like one of the videos I'm going to show below, the entertainment outweighs the risk. Could Mario III be the next star NFL... Continue reading

I'm not sure if I really dreamt of Colin Kaepernick last night. But before I dozed off, for some reason I couldn’t stop thinking about him. The image of his last name at the bottom of my fantasy team along with his face beneath the newly shaped gold 49ers helmet... Continue reading

I know this headline sounds like an awful bad jinx, but I don't believe much in that sort of thing. Kinda wanted an attention grabber, really. Tonight I compare the 2010 world champs to this years team -- who now have a 2-0 Series lead on Detroit -- cuz what's... Continue reading

This blog is a chance for me to rant, rave, renounce & rejoice (and apparently attempt to alliterate). I had a blog a few years ago that's still up called efantasysportsblog.com It was fun writing about fantasy sports, but there's more for me to write about, so that's what this... Continue reading

Why drafting Cam Newton in the first round (pick 8) was a (big) mistake Disclaimer: "big" is in parentheses because despite a dismal real-life season, Cam's legs make him a legitimate every-week fantasy starter. So he’s not a complete bust. Cam was more of a gamble than fantasy pundits would... Continue reading
