Valentine’s Viewing

Kevin James

It can be tricky to find a movie to watch with your significant other on Valentine’s day.  To be honest, this is the night of the year where men usually “take one for the team” at the local cineplex.

Acknowledging, Admitting, Acting

This weekend, during a televised interview with Anderson Cooper,  John Mayer will admit to being a jerk.

By the early 1990’s I had begun playing organized football; I was able to understand the nuance of the game in ways that helped me appreciate the 49ers gameplay.

This only meant that I was able to understand why they thoroughly dismantled my favorite teams.

I appreciated them, but I couldn’t like them.
