The golden nugget trapped inside Dan Campbell’s treasure chest of bluster and mustard

Will it be better to see Dan Campbell stalking the sidelines at Ford Field as Detroit Lions head coach or stomping Drew McIntrye for the WWE championship belt? That’s the kind of day it was over the Zoom airwaves as Dan “Shit Starter” Campbell introduced himself to the Detroit media and Lions fans with aContinue reading “The golden nugget trapped inside Dan Campbell’s treasure chest of bluster and mustard”

A burger, a beer and a lecture on racial slurs

It was a warm summer day in 2019. I needed a burger. Not just any burger. But a good one. I was cruising Waterford and debated between Culvers butter burgers and the better burgers at The Pontiac Lake Inn. I’ve been to the PLI before and the biggest argument I’d ever gotten into is whenContinue reading “A burger, a beer and a lecture on racial slurs”

Trump and Kilpatrick held common bond

Many years ago a tall striking woman in a red business suit and sneakers walked the streets of my old west side Detroit neighborhood knocking on doors and talking to anybody she could. I was impressed by her presence, struck by her banter and mesmerized by her smile and gift for gab. It was theContinue reading “Trump and Kilpatrick held common bond”

The Lions have never hired a GM with GM experience. I have a theory why

The Detroit Lions continued a trend of not hiring someone with General Manager experience when they selected former Los Angeles Rams Director of College Scouting Brad Holmes. I have a theory.

This dad breaks down again after sending his second monster to college

My wife Abs smiled this morning as she adjusted her boots, basking in the sounds of our baby Brandon playing in his bouncer begging for food. “I swear. He was in there playing this morning,” she said. “It was clear as day.” I had to blow the whistle and call a personal foul on Abs.Continue reading “This dad breaks down again after sending his second monster to college”

Let’s debunk the notion of defunding the police

On a warm summer day a man used a tool to unscrew the locks on my grandmother’s side door with the intent of robbing her. He also had a gun. So who knows what else he might have done if he gained entrance to the bottom floor of our two family flat. She was aloneContinue reading “Let’s debunk the notion of defunding the police”
