I Would Do Anything for Love

Including using this thing. Have you ever wanted a device to suck the snot out of someone’s nose? Then boy do I have the product for you. I know what you’re thinking, there must be more to this thing. There is not. You stick one end in the baby’s nose. You stick the other end […]

The NFL All-Name Team

Last weekend the boys and I watched a lot of football. It was mostly high school games and Bishop Sycamore, but they were high quality and Bishop Sycamore. Rabun County out of Georgia was playing in one of the games, and their QB is a highly rated recruit in the class of 2022. His name […]

Back to School

Today was the first day of school for the young(est) men in the family. They didn’t actually have school, we just met their teachers and dropped their stuff off. But it was still the first day. Semantics. Upon arrival, there was a table setup outside at which two aides were sitting. The Phy Ed teacher […]

This Post Isn’t About Me

I’m not a hero. I mean OK, sure, I haven’t run in over a year. I still can’t walk up the stairs without getting winded from the pneumonia I had five months ago. I put a crib together today. But my boys are in a youth track club, and today was the mile. And you […]

Overrated Things About Being a Dad

“Nick Jr.” I hear that a lot about my kids. Pretty much anytime someone interacts with them. Even though it typically follows some loud or obnoxious thing they’ve done, I always take it as a compliment. Not because I think it has any reflection on me, but because my kids are awesome. And I choose […]

Shredder’s Revenge and the Return of the Turtles

I’m a father with three kids

LeBron James said that one time. Actually it was twice. He also said he prefers that people don’t use disrespectful words towards him due to that fact. We have these things in common. Here’s a comprehensive list of things LeBron James and I have in common: three kids two sons and one daughter shouldn’t be […]

Signs you might be an obnoxious hockey parent.

A comprehensive list: You care entirely too much about the outcome of a game between 7-9 year olds (or 10 or 11 or 12 or…) and yell at the kids. On either team. Not cheer, yell. You yell at the refs. That’s pretty much it. I personally could do without the cowbells and cheering for […]

Cooking With Nick – All Gas No Brakes

Large child had a hockey tournament in Rhinelander this weekend, which is where another young man played one of his first youth hockey tournaments once upon a time. Tournaments were always the best part of playing hockey as a kid, so even though this year was radically different due to COVID restrictions, it was pretty […]
