Me @ 30

Last week I turned 30. When I’m asked how it feels, I reply that thanks to all the celebratory ice cream cake, nutella S’mores, banana boats and black label my overwhelming sensation is that of chest burning acid indigestion! But we all know that making a lame heartburn joke is a cop out for an [...]

On Leadership and Management

I’ve recently stepped into a more active management role at Sportsvite. It’s completely different than the challenges I’ve faced so far in my career and it’s starting to change my entire view of business. I know just enough to know that I’m insecure by own inexperience in management and leadership (which I’ll use interchangeable because [...]

The Heavenly Sports Day

I’ve just experienced one of the best days of sports fandom in my entire life. It’s one of those days that I would love to bottle up and have my kid give to me for Father’s Day in twenty years. It’s 2AM but I’m still so pumped up that I want to share it with [...]

World Cup Preview (Podcast)

It’s taken me awhile but I’m finally dropping my first L-Hoops podcast. The topic: The World Cup. It doesn’t take me much to be fascinated by sport. Admittedly, I’m a borderline perv when it comes to baseball, college basketball, anything fantasy, and come to think of it, just about every major sport out there (except [...]

March Madness On Demand Or On De Fritz?

I’ve been paying close attention to the television negotiations for the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. You may have heard that the NCAA is playing around with the idea of expanding March Madness to 96 teams. You may have also asked yourself why mess with the perfection that is the current tournament. Many, including myself, think [...]

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 [...]

Michigan Football: Oh Vey!

I was planning on writing a preview/projection type blog post on the 2009 Michigan Football season. It was going to be optimistically lush and chronicle the Space Emperor’s quest for the Ray Guy Award (best college punter), Nick Sheridan’s second year poise and improved klutzability, Shoelace Robinson’s kicks and point guard turned slot receiver Kelvin [...]

Pennant Race Drive: The World’s First Fantasy Sports Twitter Game

  A few months ago I thunk out a blog post that I titled “Fantwitsy Sports” . I wrote about the appeal of a twitter based fantasy sports game from both a product and a business standpoint. Besides the blog being sent out to the regulars (mia, klien, cuz Stacey, Evanter, etc), I also emailed [...]

The Best Sports Events I’ve Ever Attended

A few recent conversations had me thinking about the best sports events that I’ve ever attended. Considering the influence of sports in my life, and considering I’m not married and have no little litty’s, these events may also very well double as the overall best experiences of my life. I figured the topic was worthy [...]

Stealing Citi Field

I haven’t had a heart-wrenching action-packed blog post since the winter of 2006 when I jumped off a trampoline and raced through the streets of Nice with the Frenchie’s on my tail so here goes… I awoke Sunday morning to a perfect high noon sun and a swath of flies in my backyard who apparently [...]
