Sports, Society and Kids

As my eldest, Lukas, has gotten older he's become more and more interested in everything sports. He loves playing … Continue reading Sports, Society and Kids

2014 NFL Preview: Who Might Rain on Another 12th Man Parade?

Expect more turmoil in the Johnson household when the Super Bowl rolls around. Like last year Lukas and I will be torn on who we want to win the Super Bowl. Unlike last year I won't have to worry about my non-loving football dad yelling "Go Hawks!" and taunting me throughout the contest, and that's not because I moved … Continue reading 2014 NFL Preview: Who Might Rain on Another 12th Man Parade?

Super Bowl XLVIII: Black and Blue Monday

I wasn't afraid to share my pride, even though I was in "enemy" territory.

18 Reasons I Heart Peyton Manning

I can't seem to break it through my buddy's skull. No, I will not be rooting for "our" Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. "But you live in Seattle!"

I've attended at least one regular season game in the last four years, and … Continue reading 18 Reasons I Heart Peyton Manning

Are you kidding me?! Unbelievable! Incredible! Amazing! Impossible! Miraculous! It always bothers me when media, or just people in general, use those superlatives to describe a player, or event. Well, like it or not, all those words work for Saturday night's Wild Card weekend comeback victory that saw the Indianapolis Colts overcome a 28-point second … Continue reading Colts Win Was Filled With Superlatives!

Sorry Sports. I Need a Break.

I'm sorry Sports. It's not you, it's me. It's just that I put so much heart and soul into this relationship, and I really don't feel like I'm getting anything out of it. I'm sorry. We're going to need to take a break. At least for a week, just to see where we stand. I … Continue reading Sorry Sports. I Need a Break.

Coming Home: Peyton Manning Makes His Indianapolis Return

Another story written by me and published on PopBlerd! Please check out the site! Well done NBC, well done. NBC’s useage of Diddy Dirty Money’s “Coming Home” as the promo for Sunday Night Football’s Broncos – Colts matchup was perfect. So perfect it gave me chills when I first viewed it ... and a second … Continue reading Coming Home: Peyton Manning Makes His Indianapolis Return

NFL Preview: Room for one more? Why I Want to Jump on the Seahawks Bandwagon, but Don’t Think There is Room!

'Tis the season where pundits, casual fans, fans that think they are more than casual but are casual, and fans that think they are both pundits and more than casual fans but are really just somewhat casual (that's me) make their National Football League season predictions. Last year I wrote mine as my debut column … Continue reading NFL Preview: Room for one more? Why I Want to Jump on the Seahawks Bandwagon, but Don’t Think There is Room!
