Over the last couple of years, I’ve really taken to soccer. It doesn’t matter whether it is International or MLS or NWSL, I’ve just really grown to enjoy the sport. I remember when Coach Morgan brought soccer to Hickory. I’m not sure how quickly it took off, but I know that it grew steadily. Then, with the USA Women’s National Team’s success….there was an explosion of growth. Mia Hamm, who can forget her?

Next to music, Soccer may be the only international language, at least in the sporting world. Did you know we even have minor league teams in the US? For example, in Charlotte, NC; we have the Charlotte Independence. They are part of the USL. It’s not as fast paced as American Football. There’s no hurry up offense, but there’s a lot of strategy involved. It’s fun to watch and the players, both men and women, are riddled with talent.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

#people #lift you #down

Overheard at a Washington, D.C. bar: “Truth is like poetry. And most people fucking hate poetry.” – The Big Short (2015)

Tough talk. People walking the walk. Ego monopolies.


Where there’s a way there’s a will.

Where there’s a sea there’s a seal,

Where there’s greed, you’ll find some person real.

Where there is judgement, look at your own reflection.

Danger! It’s a warning. It’s a reality. It’s laughable.

Security! It’s a desire. We really seek not it. It’s all retractable.

Where there is God, there is a way.

Where there is Hope, there is a way.

There is never a New Way or Old Way,

all things seem old school or new school

don’t you see?

Knowledge may be hunger, but in the end we

all die. So, I’m done with you. I love you, but

I’m done with you until you wake up and see there’s

more than just sky and vibes and irrational highs.

#skatepark #optin


I don’t know where this skatepark is, but I’d love to go there. It’s amazing what these kids come up with, and they are not just children. There are adults my age still skating away, hardcore. Between surfing and skating, it’s why I still get ‘stoked’ about certain things. I know I sound silly when I use that word, but you sound odd when I hear you say things like, “that’s so epic!” I love your enthusiasm though, and I know you can appreciate mine.

#themovement #unstoppable #isaguy

Have you ever met someone who is all heart? I have met two such people in my life, three actually, and maybe one more. They are unique, and they are not always fighters.

Are you ready yet?

I’ve always loved the sea, and I am fascinated by the octopus. Did you know it has three hearts? It seems to hide in the deep, but I see it as somewhat whimsical. My observation of this has only been through nature channels because I’ve only seen a couple Disney films, although I may have been swayed by a stuffed animal.

Square Pegs in Round Holes


“Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse

Do you love art?

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Is he correct? My understanding is that this is only true in a vacuum, like outer-space. I suspect there are exceptions given the existence of quarks and what not. What difference does it make in our day to day?

A moment on the political front

Vote for who you think will do the best job.

A moment for the Millennials

Are you as confused as you appear to be? You know what, I was confused at your age too. I don’t understand why so much time is spent focusing on you. I guess because your purchasing potential is so high that you carry so much power. On the other end of the spectrum, however, you have the baby boomers. You’ll be taking care of them one day, and they know it. So, that might be something to keep in mind when you’re dealing with people that are a bit older than you. You’re passion though, it fuels me and gives me more reason to continue to improve. Within your crew are the Sir Isaac Newtons of the future. Many of you are so well traveled, you see the world through a lens most people have no access to. Many of you have hearts that have yet to be jaded by contempt for others. Life is not a video game, but it’s on the way there in many ways. Actually, I am still confused by a lot. That’s the truth.

A moment for sports

Thank God for sports and the motivation they provide.

Much learning ahead….

What you don’t know can hurt you. That’s a fact. Yet, it shouldn’t keep us from living to the best of our ability.
