Hero pic (2) Hero Uncovered

All too often in conversation I hear elite athletes referred to as heroes. The USA women’s national soccer team’s World Cup victory parade was sprinkled with signs “Our Heroes” along the route. I would be the first to laud the hard work, dedication and mental toughness it takes to be a competitive athlete. These men and women are goal driven and sacrifice, in many ways,... Read More

IMG_0738 San Francisco Giants Joy Joy Joy

I have been in a few champagne clubhouses and it conjures up memories of one’s childhood. Most boys get a head start in their own backyards with the hose attacking your best friend with a forceful stream of H2O in a fun filled escapade. It’s always fun watching grown men spraying bubbly at one another while their eyes burn from the alcohol and laughing through the pain.... Read More

IMG_1598 Stray Hope In Sochi

Raggedy, unkempt dogs roam the muddy streets of Sochi, pilfering leftover scraps of forgotten rummage. Despite the efforts of many media outlets to paint them as vicious, mangey animals who prowl tame sidewalks looking for a young child to tear apart, I’ve found most of them to be looking for nothing more than a “bite” to eat and a friendly pat on the head. More often... Read More

images Christmas Unwrapped

The opening of a gift is where the elements of surprise and expectation form a confluence of unfettered joy. Assuming  you’re not the kid who shakes and/or puts a slight tear in the wrapping paper while the defenseless gift sits under the tree hoping to remain anonymous until the 25th. There’s something unique about Christmas gift giving because we don’t celebrate one... Read More

Men Greatness Lies With Your Chest

Using sports as a metaphor for the spiritual life. Why not?  Now we can take this to the level of absurdity when a goal, home run, and every basket made is a special grace filled moment. God is anointing his favorite athletes each time he or she produces goals, runs or points. Lest not we forget those chosen ones who are defensive minded who prefer a save, diving catch or... Read More

Truth Debunking Doubt

It’s been a while since the Gospel spoke to me. It’s been a while since I’d even been to church. One Sunday passed into another, yet I found myself choosing to sleep in or simply do something else. My story of a lapse in faith is no different than any other…sometimes God just takes a back seat to other priorities. I don’t necessarily like to admit it, but I’m... Read More

Nationwide Arena NHL Teams Surprising Streak

This year the NHL has had its’ share of teams with point streaks unlike we have seen in years past. The shortened season perhaps lends itself to teams not taking a night off and heeding the coach’s daily rallying cry “boys the next one is the biggest game of the season”. The Chicago Blackhawk’s season starting 24-game streak without a loss caused quite a... Read More

Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers God Must Be A Ravens Fan

The Baltimore Ravens spirituality was on display for the entire nation to see predominantly through Ray Lewis with his evangelical minister like style of answering reporter’s questions on national television. Lest we forget the under garment purposefully displayed and embroidered with Psalm 91. Jim Nance held strong to the mic during the post game Lombardi Trophy presentation... Read More
