The Best Show On Television

That’s right guidos and guidettes, it’s time to talk Jersey Shore. When people first hear I have a blog they usually go “oh” with a look of disgust as they think to themselves what a nerd/dork I must be. To be polite, they then ask me what I blog about. My response is that I [...]

For your viewing pleasure, click this link to go to the actual blog post so that you can watch all the embedded videos. You, like most of the sane individuals in our world, might just suspect that Ron Artest is a loon. After all, this is the guy who stormed into the stands to cause [...]

Jump On The Johnnies Bandwagon

Call yourself gullible Gary if you actually thought I gave a crap about an underachieving Big Ten squad when I blogged about Michigan basketball the other day. If you’re a true member of the L-Hoops Mafia, then you well know that my heart’s allegiance lies squarely with the JOHNNIES. Despite just missing out in the [...]

The Year of the Wolverine? (College Hoops)

I’m a college basketball junkie. As I write this I’m watching West Virginia play Portland on ESPN2 in the final of a tournament called the 76 Classic. If you inquire as to what I did over the Thanksgiving break, the true answer would be that I watched college basketball. I spent most of my waking [...]

Help Plan My Costa Rica Trip

I’m planning a trip with a few friends to Costa Rica over Christmas break. So far we haven’t done much planning. Besides booking a flight, everything else is pretty much yet to be determined. This lack of a precise itinerary is partially by design. For those of you who have followed some of my travel [...]

Coolest Big Sis Ever (Sister Post)

I started getting random BBM messages from my big sister Lisa on Wednesday night. At the time i was too caught up at work to respond. Yet, I knew that whatever she was writing about was probably frivolous but at the same time was definitely hilarious. If you know me, or even if you keep [...]

SJU #21: Malik Sealy

If I ever write the book on happiness, one of my key principles would be to decorate your living space with things that make you happy. Last week, I hung up a framed Malik Sealy jersey on the wall in my apartment. Every time I look over at it, I’m happy. Malik Sealy was and [...]

Making Money Digitally

I fell in love with the internet for the same reasons I love college basketball, literature, travel and New York City. They are all vast, endless worlds in which you can seemingly discover something new every single time you visit. It’s almost impossible to get bored. A new website/book/city/bar or ESPN Big Monday night match-up [...]

Climbing Hills

This October will mark three full years that I have been working at Sportsvite. Not only is it the longest that I’ve been at one place, but I’m pretty sure I’ve spent more time working on Sportsvite than I have for any other project, goal or situation in my life (with the one obvious exception [...]

You Know What Bugs Me Out…Facebook!

I was about to write this whole long cutesy post about how Facebook really freaks me out. But I’d rather get right to the point (plus if I wrote another post in yiddish my keppie would explode). I find myself using and enjoying Facebook much less. I consider myself a serious digital sharer, but I’m [...]
