The Daily DOB — Feb. 25

First off, sorry about the lack of posts lately. It’s been a bit busy around here, which doesn’t leave a lot of time to blog. If you see a Bulls fan today, give them a hug. (That includes me.) What was looking to be a promising season, maybe even a championship one, has been derailed […]

Fifty-two years ago today in Brooklyn, N.Y., Deloris and James Jordan welcomed a little bundle of joy they named Michael Jeffrey into the world. They had no idea at the time, but they had brought into the world, the best basketball player ever. Yes, Michael Jordan turns 52 today. I’m guessing he could still stick […]

I had been looking forward to the 40th anniversary celebration of “Saturday Night Live” for a while. Growing up, I watched “SNL” a lot. I will forever think the early years of the show were the best. I am particularly drawn to the early 1980s when I am pretty sure I watched the show every […]

They say you can’t go home again, but I’m going to try this weekend. For the first time in forever, I’m planning to step foot in Galesburg High School. I can’t remember the last time I was actually inside the school. I’m guessing it was probably for my sister’s graduation in 1996. Back in my […]

It’s been a while since Walter White left our life. “Breaking Bad,” the wonderful AMC series by Vince Gilligan, went dark in Sept. 2013. The last two nights, “Breaking Bad” fans have been taken back to the good old days with the debut of “Better Call Saul,” a prequel to “Bad” that looks at the […]

If you watch ESPN this morning, you’ll be bombarded with highlights of Golden State Warriors shooting guard Steph Curry’s 51-point game. An awesome feat by a player who is one of the NBA’s best. Any time you can drop 50 in an NBA game, you’ve done something. Thanks to the NBA’s shot clock, there are […]

I’m getting less and less sleep these days. It’s not that I’m suffering from insomnia or anything. I blame Jimmy Fallon. More and more I find myself staying up after watching the news to catch his act on “The Tonight Show.” Growing up, I always watched Letterman over whoever was on “The Tonight Show.” I […]

Heard some bad news yesterday. An old friend of mine passed away. The guy was just 42 years old. I ran around with him a little bit in high school, but probably haven’t talked to him for 25 years. He was a good guy, very likable. When I knew him, he loved the New York […]

Before I start with today’s riff, a shout out to my mom, June O’Brien, on her birthday. I feel badly for the rest of you that you didn’t have the best mom ever like I have. I really enjoyed Super Bowl 49 last night. It was a ton of fun. The scoreless first quarter was […]
