A Brave new world

Published on June 8, 2013 in Baseball, Featured, Life

Thursday night officially goes down as a rainout — a rather unceremonious ending to a quite glorious season for the Shreveport Dixie Youth T-Ball Braves. The team finished the regular season with a record of 10-3. I’m not sure a single player on the team

Grand Ole Opry: Stepping onto history’s main stage

Published on May 4, 2013 in Featured

I got a taste of Southern Americana this week. Like rockin’ on the front porch under a full moon on a steamy night in July, sipping an ice-cold, syrupy sweet tea. Yeah, it was that good. I visited the Grand Ole Opry. The tour was

Simple things matter most

What a week! It has been an incredible week for all of us. First, of course, there has been the tragedy at the Boston Marathon and its aftermath. The whole world has spent the week asking “Why?”, and we all deserve an answer. I hope

I ran today

I did not run far. And I certainly did not run fast. But running fast and far was not the point today. The point was that I ran today. I ran with my son, Hadley, because it was important to me. I told Hadley on

Tragedy in Boston

Published on April 15, 2013 in Featured, Running

I have seen the footage from the finish line at the Boston Marathon today. It just makes me sick. The Boston Marathon is the pinnacle for marathoners. It’s the elite of the elite. The best of the best. There were first-time qualifiers and repeat runners

It’s not just a game

I wouldn’t call myself a poet. It’s just not the kind of storytelling I like. But I was inspired to sit down and write this haiku. I call it “T-Ball Practice”: Green grass and good friends, Hit, run, catch, throw, run again. Don’t pick the

It’s About Time

Published on March 13, 2013 in Featured, Life

I got a package in the mail today. It felt like I was waiting for a month of Sundays. But that’s probably just because of my enthusiasm. You see, this is more than just a package, it’s a whole new way to look at time.

Can’t wait for THIS year

Published on March 6, 2013 in Baseball, Featured, Life, Love

The clear blue sky made me believe it could be Opening Day. But the chill in the air reminded me that Old Man Winter hadn’t given way to the Boys of Summer. Hadley bounded from the car, slapping his mitt and raring to go. He

Staying the course

The crowds on the running trails across Shreveport were a bit sparse this morning. Several local runners are in New Orleans, gearing up for tomorrow’s Rock and Roll Mardi Gras marathon and half-marathon. Several others traveled over to the Lone Star State for the Cowtown

The sweet taste of victory

I walked out of the hotel into the early morning darkness and was immediately assaulted by an arctic blast of air. It was a painful reminder that it was, after all, still February, even if this was Dallas. But it also was a pleasant reminder
