A Truly Novel Effort at Awkwardness

I wrote a book. A novel, in fact. 65,000 of the best words I had in me. One would think (given my history on this blog) I simply regurgitated those words in arbitrary fashion onto the page like a drunken frat fool, but I promise that wasn’t the case. Truth is – I poured heart... Read more »

Awkward booing - Blackhawks beat Bruins

Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway!), the city of Chicago is ecstatic after the ice heroics of the Blackhawks displayed last night in Boston.  A triumph indeed and a championship to remember for the ages.  We are proud and happy it’s all over, because our blood pressure couldn’t take it anymore. Changing direction…... Read more »

#TheReturn of Awkward

Blast the trumpets, scream it from the streets, start the parade, lay the red carpet, and prep the flashes on the cameras – it’s been nearly a five-month layoff for the Tales of Awkward, and #TheReturn post is here.  My fans (my mother) are rejoicing and setting their TVs on The Ocho for this magnificent...

Not an awkward post about Manti Te'o

As more information pours forth from the Manti Te’o Fake Girlfriend Geyser, I’ll leave any commentary to future posts, as I’d consider anything said here today to be misinformed.  The title of this post was stated for a reason: This is not an awkward post about Manti Te’0.  This is an awkward post about online...

Awkward New Year's resolutions

New Year’s resolutions.  Ah, a fresh and clean slate to improve our lives and the lives of our loved ones around us.  I’ve take the first couple days of the new year to reflect on resolutions – my own and others out there in the world.  If you must know my resolution – I have... Read more »

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...
