A very wiffle weekend

Taking the field at Wayne's Wiffle for a Wish

BANGOR There's something wonderful about having a great time for a great cause, and that's just what I did this past weekend.

The Sports Edge - Waning Moments

It's too easy to take potshots at this year's incarnation of the Olympics Games. The Zika, the air and water pollution, the body parts washing up on shore - the punchlines are there to be had for even the worst late-night staff writer. And I have long held the opinion that the Olympics are the longest running and most boring reality television series in the history.

I was back onstage this pastFridaynight as part of the Portland Comedy Festival after the considerable layoff of almost ten months. To be honest, I was nervous for that set like I haven't been for any other that I can remember. Sure, there were always the ones that would give me an extra buzz, headlining a particular club for the first time, opening for someone really big for the first time, or working with someone whose work you admire.Fridaywas a different kind of buzz altogether, it was the 'if you stink out the joint, people will think you're done' thing. And I wanted no part of that, thank you.

Goat Boy and Shaggy, kittens and Olympians

Look, I get it. It's getting to the point in the sports season that new stories aren't going to be the easiest thing to come by, so sometimes motivated writers and radio show hosts will put their hamster wheels to work and try to scare something up on their own.

Waning Moments

I began writing a column under this title for the Maine Campus in 2002 and have never quite been able to shake the name. With a handle like mine, there aren't a lot of cleverly-turned phrases or pop culture references available, so if you think you may have read something similarly named a handful and a half years ago, you probably did.

All aboard the Celtics bandwagon

All aboard. Everybody make sure your hands and feet are inside the vehicle before we depart. A cursory look to your right and then to your left will reveal that not all the seats are taken here on the Celtics Bandwagon. I'd venture that we are barely over half capacity.

A speculative season with the Sox

One of the understood, carved-in-stone rights bestowed upon every sports fan is the ability to second-guess.
