Say it ain't so, Tom

The Tom Brady saga appears to finally be over, ending not with a bang but with a whimper.

The future Hall of Famer opted to take his four game vacation and move on with his life, perhaps understanding that as time went on, this case became less about him and more about the ongoing power struggle between the commissioner's office and the NFL Players Association.

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.

When heroes exceed expectations

I recently had the opportunity to talk with an absolute legend, a former UCLA Bruin and Boston Celtic and basketball Hall of Famer - Bill Walton.

The G.O.A.T.

It has been several days since the man known as 'The Greatest of All Time' shuffled off this mortal coil, when his broken body finally gave out in an Arizona hospital. As we've seen in the worldwide reaction, that physical end did nothing to kill the spirit of the larger-than-life phenomenon that was Muhammad Ali.

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.

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.
