I wish I could take credit for what you’re about to read, but former KQ Morning Show standout Mike Gelfand wrote this brilliant piece of prose about Sunday’s playoff game between the Vikings and Seahawks: “I’ve been in the lockerrooms and seen the sausage of glory being made, so I have no truck with heroes; […]
Never in all my days have I had an anxiety attack. And then today I went to the Mall of America, spent six hours there and had a doozy. The anxiety attack wasn’t from the mere fact I went to MOA, though I am sure that could trigger one for some people. My attack was […]
Happy New Year to everyone, and I hope 2016 is better for you than 2015, even if 2015 was the best year of your life. Nothing wrong with back-to-back terrific years, right? For me, 2015 was the worst of times. And the best of times. I was fired from two jobs (KQ Morning Show and […]
“It’s A Wonderful Life” has been on TV a lot lately. It’s a holiday classic and my favorite movie of all time. The core message of the movie is how one life can touch so many others. And every time I watch it, this is what I take away: Touch a life today.
I could be wrong, but … I believe many people could find more acceptable the Black Lives Matter protest at Mall of America if they felt the movement showed as strong an interest in tamping down violence in black communities. Have I missed it? Are they doing it? I found it interesting, and not coincidental, […]
I haven’t written anything in several days. Been sick. Diverticulitis. Very annoying. But I’ve straightened myself out from the fetal position because today is a special day. Shane’s birthday. My No. 4 child and No. 3 son is 10 today. Wow. Time doesn’t just fly. It moves at warp speed. I recall many things about […]
Got an e-mail tonight addressed to me — sort. The subject line said, “Rob, 7 out of 10 people find plans less than $100.” I needed a good sardonic laugh. The e-mail was about health plans. I have seven people in my family and I’ll be paying nearly $1,900 a month, starting in January. (I […]
Am I a bad dad? I just walked out of my 14-year-old son Spencer’s holiday concert because he was done playing the violin with his eight grade orchestra. No offense to the other kids but if my child isn’t on stage I’m skedaddling until he’s back up there. And he will be for the finale […]
Can I dance? Yeah, I can dance. I can tap dance with the best of them when it comes to avoiding a question. I learned that from interviewing coaches and watching politicians on CNN and Fox News. As for other dances, I don’t have a great deal of experience. But I am getting it. I […]
We have animals, a lot of animals. Horses. Dogs. Cats. Rabbits. Chickens. Ducks. Guinea Hens. A pot-bellied pig in need of the porcine version of Medi-Fast. Spencer, our soon-to-be 14-year-old son, has wanted a dog of his own. There’s Odi, a Komondor. He belongs to Mary, my wife. There’s Riley, a mini Australian Shepherd. He […]
