Monday “FUN-DAY” Quarterback: How many NFL QBs have started in “multiple” Super Bowls?

As of the start of the 2020 NFL season, there are three active QBs with two or more Super Bowl starts; Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson. Continue reading

The Death of American Conservative Intellectualism – November 2020 Edition

When you have bad faith actors representing one ideological movement, it’s only a matter of time before the other side becomes bad-faith actors too. It is simply disingenuous to say both parties are equally bad. The Republican party as we know it, is a cult. And it’s a dangerous cult. Continue reading

2020 US Presidential Election time…the darkest election in our lifetimes

These next four to eight years will be so crucial for America, and the world. I just pray that, regardless of the result, that we can peacefully move on to a new term in office starting January 20, 2021, and that whoever the President is – he will be able to rise to the challenge and be able to heal all Americans from the pain and suffering so many of us have had to endure over these past number of years and months in particular.

Eulogy for my big sister, Jessica Jacobs: October 2020

If I knew this was going to be the last conversation I was ever going to have with Jess, maybe I would have tried to say something more profound. But, it honestly probably would have ruined the moment. I’m grateful that was my final conversation with Jess. Continue reading

What does “The Truman Show” and “Facebook” have in common?

If you ever wondered why your conservative friend or liberal friend seems to live on a different planet than you….it’s because he or she does. Continue reading

“Breonna Taylor, white-supremacy, & America’s inequitable ways.”

I’m not embarrassed for turning the channel on my life, for trying to avoid horrible news. I’m embarrassed at how easy it is for me to turn it off. How privileged I am to be able to avoid it, and for it to largely not impact my life. Continue reading

People, Humanity & God

We need more of the humaneness in humanity and less of the people in people. Continue reading

How I can simultaneously still be a Democrat and vote for the Biden-Harris ticket for President, while criticizing them too.

The pool of voters for Biden is much larger than people realize. Trump’s supporters are shrinking more and more and there actually a ton of persuadable voters that actually want a politician to level with them. Blind loyalty to the Democrats is a turn off to people that were sympathetic to Trump prior to the pandemic. These voters aren’t stupid and they resent being treated as such. People that never thought they could ever vote for a Biden / Harris ticket, actually might, but they don’t want to be lumped in with a bunch of sycophants. Continue reading

Rest in Power, Kobe & Gigi!

But, then in 1996 is this kid from Philadelphia (my mother’s home-town) having gone to Lower Merion HS with cousins of mine, and that was Kobe “Jelly Bean” Bryant. I was a freshman in high school when he came on the scene, and it was like he was the next Michael Jordan. While there is no other MJ, who I always looked up to with reverence, it was more like I grew up with Kobe. He was just a bit younger than my older sister and just a bit older than me. He was my guy! I followed his career super closely. Watching him play in games, was must see TV for me. He was the consummate professional and the ultimate competitor. Continue reading

THE NBA & CHINA: A GEO-POLITICAL AFFAIR!

Very rarely does Geo-political matters and the State of the National Basketball Association intersect like this, but it has, and the NBA gets a failing grade for its handling of this matter (14). They are more concerned with corporate greed much like GOOGLE, APPLE and many other multi-billion-dollar entities who are Head-Quartered in the UNITED STATES (15). To say otherwise, means either you are truly ignorant, willfully ignorant, or you have a real incentive to protect the NBA Brand because of financial reasons (16), Continue reading
