Call It Now

Filed in Everwhatever, Sports

As I mentioned in the last post, my high school team is about to start two-a-days, which means that football season is now in effect. Not in full effect yet; that doesn’t happen until the first pre-season game. But It’s time for the real sports season to begin. And if it’s football season, that means [...]

Let’s Go, Fellas

Filed in Everwhatever

In the few minutes that I have before two-a-days start, I may do some real research into single-sex schools. Being in the middle of the action, it seems clear to me that a lot of our kids need some addition by subtraction. In this case, the subtraction of the distraction of attraction. Now, do I [...]

You See What You Look For

Maybe it’s because there’s such a thing as a gay rights movement, which makes me more aware of these things, or maybe I would’ve put two and two together eventually anyway, but when I watch dudes on the old Soul Train videos these days, some of those cats be lookin’ miiiighty suspect. As in, how [...]

Reference Point + Vocabulary

Filed in Everwhatever

To remedy that, I’m gonna run the post from which that reference comes, written in August, 2004. I got ambushed. There [...]

If you can’t braid it, best thing to do is fade it (c) Phife There are things I believe and things I know. Like, I believe that gravity keeps people on the Earth and the Earth in orbit around the sun. I believe that water is made up of molecules with two parts hydrogen and [...]

With All Requisite Seriousness

Filed in Everwhatever

Yesterday was my first-ever stint on the radio. I’d give myself about 12 points, 7 rebounds. That is to say, I didn’t embarrass myself at all, but I would like to have come a lot stronger. As one of my friends said, I didn’t even drop any classic “Tooleyisms.” Not one metaphor, nothin. You know, [...]
