Maddux voting shows HOF flaws yet again

The Baseball Hall of Fame will announce its 2014 inductees on Wednesday, and several players have a chance to be inducted on their first time on the ballot. Former Atlanta Brave and Chicago Cub great Greg Maddux seems to be a shoe-in after winning 355 games, four Cy Youngs and 18 Gold Glove Awards. However, … Continue reading

Archives: Making friends with the UFC

I’ve gotten to cover some pretty cool events in my former career. One of my favorites was when the Ultimate Fighting Championship came to Houston in 2007. I bring this up because the UFC is returning to Houston this weekend, and the Houston Chronicle hired me to cover it. I’m quite excited. The UFC’s first … Continue reading

Archives: Like a bridge over troubled water

I wasn’t dating anyone at the time (once again, why didn’t I go out with Eva Longoria? I’m an idiot.), so Corey and … Continue reading

Archives: Three’s company, eight is a crowd

I promised that periodically I’d revisit posts from my original blog on myspace. I figured the first archived post would be one of everyone’s favorites from Aug. 2007. Three’s company, eight is a crowd. Here’s a little background information before reading: I broke up with Man-Ram in July of that year, so I rejoined match.com … Continue reading
