I’m a Man! I’m 40!

That’s right; today, July 31st is my birthday and Lordy-freaking-Lordy, I am 40.

First of all, I’m happy to be alive, and to be healthy. I’m happy to have four special children, and a fantastic wife, and I’m happy to have my health. I’m very pleased to still have some hair. I destroy Matt Hasselbeck in that area.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
