Clash of the Beards and Bellies

Blood and Entrails Most of us have been through at least one good haunted house in our lifetime. When I was a kid growing up in a farm town, we would get permission from my great uncle (a farmer) to make an amazing “haunted shop.” We partitioned each room with hay bales, coated the concreteContinue reading “Clash of the Beards and Bellies”

Hot Cash From the King of Spice

All Hallow’s Eve My family goes all-out this time of year. Between flickering orange porch lights, terrifying (and motion-sensing) decorations, and elaborate costumes, Halloween is entirely off the rails at our house. It doesn’t end there, either. We also celebrate Dia de los Muertos from November 1-2, which is a special time to honor allContinue reading “Hot Cash From the King of Spice”

Clash of the Beards and Bellies

Blood in the Water The blush on Scott’s cheeky pair of victories has darkened to an overripe bruising. The last fortnight-and-a-half has implanted a festering doubt to whether the leaves will cease to fall. The other stench in the air is of desperation. Nimble will try anything to avoid rolling his losing streak into anotherContinue reading “Clash of the Beards and Bellies”

Hot Cash From the King of Spice

Cry-mageddon I’ve amazed myself at the staggering amount of restraint required to not post a single Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems) GIF, “This is how I win.” The tears are flowing. The deepest voices have gone shrill. Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season is “Bye-mageddon.” The waaambulance chasers are already reserving airtime. “If you orContinue reading “Hot Cash From the King of Spice”

Clash of The Beards and Bellies -Week 6

Just Win, Baby! It was uglier than Jon Gruden’s emails, but I grinded out the head-to-head victory over Queen Elsa’s ice jester, mister Nimble. Scott had so many snowflakes on his side of the screen that Yukon Cornelius rode by on the Abominable Snowman with Rudolph and Hermey the elf. We were both snake-bitten byContinue reading “Clash of The Beards and Bellies -Week 6”

Bulletin Board Material What would you tell someone if they approached you on the street and asked, “What motivates you?” Is it a who or a what? If it’s a who, why? I know some people who seem to lack any motivation to improve their lot in life, but like tapping on the walls ofContinue reading “Hot Cash From the King of Spice”

Clash of the Beards and Bellies- Week 5

All Square The full-on game stack I deployed last week wasn’t successful, but it was still enough to defeat Scott. Our season series is now all square at two wins apiece. I also was surgical with my 15 lineups and won our menage a trois highest score contest over Scott and his Fantasy Millionaires compadre,Continue reading “Clash of the Beards and Bellies- Week 5”

Love and Courage Love is powerful. It is the strongest emotion and the most potent word. Love drives us to do great things and also to insanity. Every language has a word for it. Each person on Earth has it somewhere inside of them. From the time we are born, we lock eyes with ourContinue reading “Hot Cash From the King of Spice”

Clash of the Beards and Bellies – Week 4

Nagging Nagy I am a staunch believer in fate. Everything happens for a reason. I wasn’t meant to beat The Nimble One in Week 3. One would think that a second-consecutive loss to my arch-nemesis would drive me into seclusion. I put my trust in a rookie quarterback in his NFL debut against a toughContinue reading “Clash of the Beards and Bellies – Week 4”

Pinkies Up His name was Carl Ruiz, but everyone affectionately called him “The Cuban.” Carl was a staple as a competitor and judge some of my favorite Food Network Shows, including Guy’s Grocery Games (GGG) and Chopped. He was the first television personality I actually enjoyed following on social media. His charisma and joie deContinue reading “Hot Cash From the King of Spice”
