Baseball is one of those sports that has similarities to a concert. There’s always anticipation, but nothing like that first time. While there are many who love every damn song—even the obscure cover/mashup—and know every damn word and gosh darn, darn nuance…there are others who would rather leave […]
Rick Suter—the guy watching Tom Hanks finally(!) get out of that damn airport terminal—is a Los Angeles-based writer and other stuff that doesn’t sound as cool but pays the rent. An entertaining sort of guy...even though that claim is being written by Rick in the third person. He has written columns for Bleacher Report, Faniq.com and Fox Sports (when their blog-o-shpere existed!). He has co-written a book—Rick Dempsey's Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball. The guy loves pizza.
There is a Foot Locker commercial, too...somewhere.
The Los Angeles Dodgers lost Game 7 of the World Series last night—proving that baseball and the doormen of America’s pastime, the sanctity of its historical lore, care nothing for the Blue Heart emoji or the less-happy ones thereafter. Baseball is the house and the house won—and the […]
You haven’t lived until you’ve learned how to make a cocktail, gang. It’s that simple.

It’s bad enough that the universe awoke yesterday to the news that Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry have split—sad stuff, gang. Sad, sad, #sad—but that fails in comparison to the ongoing saga and, quite frankly, national crisis that is the Oscars flub from Sunday night. In case you […]
There are times when the world needs to be wiped of the muck and the murk, the shit and the storm, swept clean of the rotten banana peels of political opinions—that are soooo damn slippery—and worrisome grief that causes murmurs around the water cooler and valet parking areas […]
You Have to Rewind It (Valentine’s Day Edition): My Review of the 1988 Film ‘Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers’
I’m not sure what world you’re living in, gang, but over here on the couch…candy is candy. Really, though. Love it or hate it, is there A time that usurps all other times when it comes to consuming sweets? To me, that box of Milk Duds tastes just […]
For the love of PETE, just when you thought Mondays are the absolute worst things in the world—and that goes double for folks in Green Bay and Pittsburgh—a movie franchise steps in and gives us all a little relief, a little nudge on the shoulder, making everything seem […]
While many of you point to a hot slice of pizza, or perhaps scalding spaghetti sauce, as the perfect food villain for destroying the roof of your mouth, I thinks it’s time, here and now in 2017, that we shed a little culinary light on another subject that […]
“If you build it, he will come.” —Shoeless Ray “Joe Jackson” Liotta Those famous words, uttered in a ghostly fashion in the movie Field of Dreams, have come full circle in 2017, landing right in the same town (Los Angeles) that green lit the fabled baseball flick. This […]
