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 [...]

The Inspiring Silver Project

Last Tuesday afternoon my friend Stacey sent out an email to all of her friends introducing the Silver Project. Stacey created a holiday gift, a very cool calendar (.pdf file), to raise money for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. It’s a charity for which she has a strong personal connection. Stacey did this [...]

Livin’ NYC

I probably don’t appreciate living in NYC as much as I should. I often realize this as I speak with someone who has moved to NYC from some podunk town like Boston, Cleveland or Baltimore. I hear them speak of our city with wide-eyed fascination and reverence. When I think about NYC, I’m usually thinking [...]

Not Backing Into Decisions

At some point last weekend the fifth disc of my lumbar spine decided enough is enough. After 29 years of cushioning my spine as I pulled softballs foul, banked in three-pointers, jumped up and down on the couch watching St. John’s lose and sat hunched over my computer playing with the internet, a disc in [...]

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 [...]

Know Yourself

I once read a Chuck Klosterman story in which, as an aside, he shares an anecdote about the sports journalist Howard Cosell. Cosell once went out of his way to step in and break up a random fight between two strangers who were brawling in the street. An amazed Al Michaels, who was walking with [...]

Galitzianer Trash

I’m a Litvack. It says so on my birth certificate and my driver’s license. If I lived in California, it would say so on my medical marijuana certificate. I’ve always been proud of my last name. It’s unique, easy to say, and easier to mumble. Best of all, it spawned off a catchy nickname that [...]

Get Off The Digital Grid

I was fortunate to be able to get some time off over the holidays and checked out Costa Rica for ten days. It’s an awesome country and with some decent planning and a little luck, the vacation unfolded perfectly. The beaches, waterfalls, weather and Imperial beer were all pura vida. But one of the things [...]

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 [...]
