"I love sports. Whenever I can, I always watch the Detroit Tigers on the radio."
— Gerald R. Ford

Saying the Jacksonville Jaguars are having a pretty drab season is like saying Haiti is a little impoverished. They're breaking records left and right but for all the wrong reasons. Any time a franchise has to offer free beer for its fans to come to games, indicates a very bad season. A Super Bowl spot was futile even before the season began, a playoff berth out the window as soon as they stepped out on the field in week one, hell, even a winning season has been thrown out the window at this point, but fans (true fans) still keep watching each week. Now there's a way to minimize those aches and pains that come along with being a ... Continue Reading

"A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them."
— John C. Maxwell

Disclaimer: This is a long post that I've been writing over the last few days. I think it's interesting, but I could be wrong. Right now it's become my favorite post that I've written so far for DonDoes30.com

Happy Anniversary

Living without the internet for a week (so far) really brings some things into perspective. This post is part 3 of a 5 post series about Internet Luxuries You're Taking for Granted. Read Part 1, Part 2

The 15th of the month is rapidly approaching and a good portion of my bills are outstanding at the moment, all due on that date. We all have bills and they need to be paid. I figured today would be a great day — day off from work, wife at work, baby in daycare — to finish paying off those ... Continue Reading

"Physics is often stranger than science fiction, and I think science fiction takes its cues from physics: higher dimensions, wormholes, the warping of space and time, stuff like that."
— Michio Kaku

Don't have TV? Go to a physics lecture!

I posted on Facebook about this lecture at least a month and a half ago — way before I had any idea I was going to do this challenge — and am even more excited today as I was then, because when you don't have much in terms of entertainment, you look ... Continue Reading

"I had years of partying, and I was kind of surprised and happy I survived it all. Now, being a parent, I look back on it thinking, Oh God, the things you did!"
— Jeff Bridges

I've partied in every major city in Florida — Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale — but sometimes the smaller ones will surprise you. My wife and I recently celebrated our five year wedding anniversary, much to both of our surprise that we haven't killed each other by now. She planned a stay in a ... Continue Reading
