The Daily DOB — Aug. 28

I think most of us are history buffs of some sort. We all pine for the good ole days at some point. If you could transport yourself back to a spot in time earlier in your life, you’d probably do it. I’m a huge fan of the old school. If I had only had the […]

The Daily DOB — Aug. 25

I think the wife had enough of pro wrestling by Monday night. When I headed to the man cave to watch WWE Raw, she looked at me and said “More pro wrestling?” and gave me that look. I had to explain to her it was the Monday after SummerSlam and Raw was a must watch. […]

Let’s play dumb, dumber, dumbest, shall we? Dumb — At least my fantasy football draft hasn’t been held yet. Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson would have been one of my keepers. Now, he’s out for the season with a torn ACL and the Notorious DOBs likely will keep no one going into the 2015 campaign. […]

For the past 10 years or so, we’ve had at least one child involved in athletics. Only once, did that include tackle football. That season, when our oldest son, Derek, was in fifth grade and played through the Quincy Family YMCA’s program, was the longest season ever. Derek was on the Chiefs, a team primarily […]

I have enjoyed the debate the last few days in the wake of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison saying he wouldn’t let his kids take participation trophies for the sports they play. I’m with Harrison, giving awards to all — be it on an athletic field or in a classroom — does nothing but create […]

Every now and then we’ll get an upset customer. Closing in on three years on the crime beat, I’m surprised I don’t get more calls like the one I got on Monday morning. It was from a family member upset that we wrote about their loved one’s crime in the paper. The person thought we […]

Anyone who knows the slightest about me knows that I’m a huge fan of old-school rap. No, I don’t look like your typical rap fan, whatever that person might look like. But I have always loved the genre. (By the way, today’s rap is mainly trash.) It goes all the way back to around 1983 […]

First, let me apologize for not making “The Daily DOB” actually a daily thing. Been a bit busy and a tad lazy. I’ll change that. Today’s sports topic of the day crosses into the courtroom with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appearing before a federal judge in the beyond […]

But that’s what many have done in light of the news of the sudden resignation of QND boys basketball coach Tom Shields.

The Daily DOB — July 30

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Twitter. It’s a great tool, especially for journalists. We use it to help break news and promote our product. There are also times when I hate Twitter. Wednesday night was one of those times. It happened shortly after St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday aggravated a leg injury. […]
