I never cared about what's standard, accepted or normal to anyone else. This is the place where I talk about my obsessions and infatuations: the Sacramento Kings, Miami Dolphins, my favorite TV shows and hip-hop albums, and pretty much anything that pops into my head. My life is about finding forever and believing in the impossible dream. I have this site because it reminds me I've got to fight every day.

Despite what I
may have told people in college, my high school football career lasted only three days.
After running cross-country and track during the fall season as a sophomore and junior, I wanted to see if I could make the transition to football as a senior. Three practice days in, I decided I’d had enough. I wasn’t in danger of being cut (mostly because with about 100 students in my class, just about anyone who tried out made the team), but wearing ...

Yes, I waited in line for three hours to meet R. Kelly. And yes, it was totally worth it.
As much as I make fun of Kellz for his oftentimes absurd lyrics, he remains my favorite musician, and with a half-day at work, naturally, I'd head to a downtown Barnes and Noble for his book singning.
After getting my wristband, for which I had to buy a copy of his me...Read Full Post »

When two die-hard sports fans get married, you can bet their wedding ends up being anything but typical. From the Sacramento Kings and Miami Dolphins-themed groom's cake to my purple-and-black yarmulke and Michelle's aqua-and-orange garter to our tables being named after mascots, we had plenty of unique and (somewhat) subtle nods to our favorite teams.

Barely 72 hours later, it still feels surreal.
Michelle and I, along with a couple of our friends, had the opportunity to go to a Tracy Morgan charity comedy show in Miami, which was presented by Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano to benefit Veteran’s Housing. Thanks to the event organizers, Lunar Sports Group, we had invites to the pre-show VIP party, backstage passes and tickets to the after-party at the Shore Club.

With no NBA Summer League or preseason games on tap, I’ve resorted to honoring players’ birthdays on Twitter with some of their best (or worst) highlights or cheesy commercials. Since New Jersey native and NBA journeyman Anthony Avent was born on October 18, I’ve decided to commemorate him with the story of how I met him 16 years ago.
As a kid, there was nothing I loved more about summer than going to my camp in Union, NJ. I didn’t care about arts-a...

On May 29, Michelle and I were married. As special and amazing as the day was, I won't bore you with too many of the wedding details. My beatiful bride looked amazing, of course, and I also received quite a few compliments on my R. Kelly-inspired white jacket.
