Awkward sports logos

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back the retro “screaming savage” logo (see linked image) as part of their 2013 BP uniform – you know the uniform no one sees or cares about.  This logo was used from 1967 to 1989 and even used earlier when the Atlanta Braves were the Milwaukee Braves.  The writer of...

2012: The Year of the Awkward

Christmas has come and passed, bringing forth a week of excitement toward the new year, 2013.  Christmas is a time for family and reflection.  Reflect on self, reflect on the past, present, and future.  Plenty of individuals use the new year to make amends, to rid bad habits, develop good habits, reach for self-made promises,...

Awkward Poem - 'Twas the Night Before Armageddon

‘Twas the night before Armageddon, when all through the shelter, Not a person was moving, only all feeling a swelter, The canned foods and dried fruit sat quietly in the 3,000 sq. ft. pantry, And radioactive jumpsuits waiting by the readied gantry.   The paranoid sat, snug in their folding chairs, With images of blazing asteroids...

The gun debate shouldn't be this awkward

Gun owners defend their right to own a gun using the Second Amendment.  Victims of gun violence have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – as do all Americans.  But I pose a simple question of the supposed “altruistic utopian” that American paints for itself: As a gun owner, do you...

Awkward Donald Trump and waste of time

**WATCH VIDEO BEFORE READING** That was plain dumb. Doesn’t Donald Trump feel awkward now?  Twitter-verse is annihilating The Donald.  I’m sure Facebook is doing the same (I’m a retired Facebook user – see previous post).  I’m also sure blogs around the country, and humor sites (such as The Onion) are having a field day with...

The awkward little things

Brain Farts Forgetting a belt.  Or missing a loop. Not zipping up the zipper post-bathroom activities. Not having money for a cab (and convincing the cabbie you love Muslims and would never try this). Forgot a button on the shirt (or blouse – not that we mind about the blouse). Coffee spill from tipping the... Read more »

America's awkward state of affairs

July 4th, our Independence Day, passed.  Our nostalgic selves aimed our eyes upward as the crackling of a million fireworks lit up the American skies this past week.  We wore our red, our white and our blue as a tribute to American flag and our nation.  For the 15 minutes of fireworks, we probably forgot...

Does Joe Amendola feel awkward?

I’d rather ease into my first post in weeks, especially as I broach the Jerry Sandusky and Penn State subject.  Tread lightly, my friends.  We don’t want to upset the brainwashed contingent that is Penn State and JoePa defenders, resulting in hateful emails, tweets, comments, et cetera.  Scary! My only purpose here is to ask... Read more »

Ricketts in quite the awkward situation, poor Julian Green

If you are one of the eight people (my mother and wife included) that reads my blog, you’ll probably predict a satirical entry given the headline.  Ding, ding, ding! As the news unfolds in the “Ricketts vs. Ricketts” debacle surrounding the family’s hypocrisy, I notice a more thrilling problem.  An awkward problem.  Perhaps, an issue... Read more »

Cell phones, what an awkward device

Last week my wife and I returned home on a United Airlines flight from Phoenix to Chicago.  I attended a wedding the previous evening and still had a general queasiness churning my stomach.  Not an out of control hangover, more of a dehydrated (Arizona air generously taught me), danced-out, screamed-out state of body and mind – pure exhaustion.  Needless...
