Clichés; athletes are allegedly trained to use them. We gave 110% effort today. I kept my eye on the ball. We took our swings. You can’t win them all. We brought our A-game today… In the movie Bull Durham, the grizzled old catcher played by Kevin Costner taught Tim Robbins character several clichés before heContinue reading “Never Look A Gift Horse…”

There’s No Place Like Home Field Advantage
Football, like most everything else in 2020 is VERY different this season. Maybe it is because I’ve limited my football viewing to YouTube highlight reels of B1G conference games and the NFL.

Lowest Legal Prices?!
If you grew up in Wisconsin this picture declaring proudly that beer can be purchased at the ‘lowest legal price’ is common place.

In Wisconsin there is a law dating back to 1939 called the UnfairContinue reading “Lowest Legal Prices?!”
Chilly Outside? Chili Inside!
When temperatures begin to drop under the freezing mark my appetite begins to long for a nice hot soup. Chili is my very favorite soup. Bright red broth chocked full of ground meat and beans and a variety of spices prominently featuring chili peppers. The mouth waters just thinking about it! Like most, my firstContinue reading “Chilly Outside? Chili Inside!”
