An Incredible Return

Last night I witnessed an Incredible return. I was treated to a sneak preview of the new Incredibles 2 movie. I was not disappointed. The original graced the screen 14 years ago – before the Captain was even a father. I remember borrowing a friend’s 5 year old so that I could go see it […]

CozyPhones Solves the Headphone Conundrum 

  CozyPhones solved a problem for me. That’s right – this cute little Froggy headband solved one of my problems. And if you have kids, I’m guessing you have had this problem too. There are two inherent problems with things that emit sound – 1. Not everyone wants to hear the sound. 2. You can’t […]

Headed to Brickworld

The Lego brick has been with me my entire life. Some of my earliest memories are with tinkering with bricks from various sets that I owned – making my own creations. Flash forward to fatherhood and the Legos are still here. Now I tinker and encourage the imaginative creations with which my kids create, and […]

I am a proud member of #TeamSmarty and thank them for their continued support of families and well-being. My thoughts and […]

No Longer a Loser

I just turned 40 a few weeks ago. For 40 years I lived as a loser. That all changed tonight. For a lifetime and a quarter, my hometown of Cleveland found every painful way to twist the proverbial knife in the back of our fanhood. I witnessed collapses in every sport. Rumors of curses, disdain […]

The Absurdity of Fanhood

I was awake to see the clock tick all the way down to the double zeroes. It was a familiar scene, and maybe a metaphorical one even, no time left on the clock and my time had fewer points. I watched the familiar scene of my team (this time the Cleveland Cavaliers) sulk their way […]

Captain America: Civil War – The Captain’s Recap

I waited a long time for this movie. Thanks to Fandango a whole group of us got to go to the premiere of Captain America: Civil War. Civil War is by far my favorite Marvel movie to date. And there are so many reasons why the movie worked, but here are three specifically: 1. The […]

Big and Little Kid Movies

I am a Blog Ambassador for Fandango Family. Though I have been compensated for this post, my thoughts and words are my own.  One of the things I have enjoyed about my movie going experience in the past year is that I have been fortunate enough to experience shows suitable for me with friends and […]
