I was born in a hospital next to a dirt road in a small Georgia town. A town that everybody knows everyone and you can’t hide secrets. They still hold mine against me. Even after all these years, I still love being on the lake in North Georgia, wakeboarding and drinking cold beer.
After a few years of doing sports broadcasting, I stumbled into a building that said Rock 100.5 on the door and begged to get on the air to play great rock tunes and have some fun in a city that I always loved, Atlanta. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, here I am!
The best part of Atlanta are the amazing bands that rock hard at these kickass venues and much of my weekend is spent jamming out with all of them. This city is always hopping, so let’s have some fun and debauchery in the middle of the night.
Love the Hawks, been a fan for life! Rooftop bars, anything on the water and good company is fine with me. I’m goofy, awkward and I dig anything crazy!

REMEMBER THE DAYS OF SPORTS?

At first I loved watching reruns on ESPN and all the sports outlets of classic NBA, NFL games, etc. Nowadays, it’s getting a little old. I miss sports. All the major sports events are getting pushed back to later in the year and the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo has been pushed back to 2021. Sports aren’t returning anytime soon. However, there are great updates in the world of sports. Light at the end off the tunnel! Check out the links below:

HOW’S YOUR BEER BELLY?

Life in the age of the coronavirus. We have had to uproot our lives and completely change our routine in the matter of a couple weeks. For me, I know I’ve spent more time in my house in the past week and a half than I have in the last year combined. The first few days were spent adjusting and getting accustomed to this new lifestyle. Did anyone else experience the same? I had to sit down in the first couple days and write out a routine; a schedule of my day broken down into parts as if I was at work. Admittedly, day one and two consisted of waking up a little later than usual, working for about an hour or two and then having a beer or three with my lunch. Like many of you, I felt like I was on a vacation. However, this feeling did not radiate with those working their 9-5 job from home while homeschooling and entertaining kids. I feel for those people and promise I am honoring you as best as possible with my life of little responsibility. I feel like I finally got a routine down and am sticking to it. I’m balancing my work-at-home life with my down time and what I’ll call my recreation time. Going to the grocery store is like walking to a minefield. You have no idea who does and doesn’t have COVID-19. You hold your breath as long as possible, apply your hand sanitizer every 15 seconds and try to get out of there as soon as possible.

Hey, I found toilet paper today! Winning! My bum thanked me for giving it backup. It was getting nervous. Nevertheless, I digress.

We have all worked so hard to get a routine that we can stick with while on house arrest. We have put together all the pieces to emulate an at-home work environment. Many of us forgot to schedule in one certain aspect though…..our workouts! We’ve been drinking beers and eating apocalyptic junk food and didn’t even pay attention to our bulging bellies. We dropped the ball on that one. When the gyms closed, we thought calories and carbs took a break as well. Nope, they are still there and hitting harder than ever.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, however! Gyms are going online and tons of apps are offering free workouts to the public. This is unification at it’s finest. People coming together to solve problems with an abundance of solutions. I’ve been doing as much searching on the ole Google machine as I could to find you plenty of resources. If you do not find my resources acceptable, just search “coronavirus at home workouts” and you are sure to find something to your liking. There are options included for men, women, strength building, fat loss, yoga practice, running, etc.

UNFINISHED_SENTENC #9

Oh, the Boston accents. The language of true humor; not because their jokes are funnier, but because the accent just makes everything sound funny. Every time I meet a Bostonian, I must come across as rude because of my constant giggle. I’ve seen a lot of good impersonations on the internet, some better than others. I was quite impressed with this one from Seth Myers. Enjoy!

THE WORLD=KIND&FAIR

Hoarders; they are the underbelly of society. Whenever the single hint of a panic rises in society, these horrible people are the first to barrel down the stores to stock up in preparation of the apocalypse. If you’ve been to the grocery store, you are well aware that toilet paper, paper towels, Lysol, sanitizing wipes and many other products are less than scarce. Again, we have the hoarders to thank you for this separate pandemic. Instead of just getting enough supplies to last for a couple weeks and see how this whole thing plays out, they fill their carts with two lifetimes worth of toilet paper. Inconsiderately, that doesn’t leave much for the rest of us. It’s times like this when we realize how selfish humans can be and what little respect and worry they have for everybody else. I get it, if you have a family of seven or eight, load up. You will definitely need it. But, if it’s just you and bro roommate that take massive dumps after eating the hottest wings you can come across and flooding your liver with beer, you need to examine a pandemic lifestyle change.

These are times when sharing and consideration are the key words. There are definitely a lot of great places in the world, but specifically Atlanta, doing things to help out their fellow man. Breweries are donating money to charities to feed the less fortunate and take care of industry workers. They are also making hand sanitizer since you can’t find one single bottle anywhere else. Grocery stores, Costco, Walmart and others are starting to frequently restock these items that so many people have been selfish about and disregarded the needs of others. Admittedly, I have been stretching out my last two rolls of toilet paper, using way less than I should be using. However, I promised myself I would not succumb to those hoarders and get on their level by lashing out at them on social media. I was going to remain quiet, stay in my lane and wait for these providers to restock the shelves. I would then, at that time, go in there with my head held high and purchase myself an 18-pack of butt wipers like a civilized adult. Well, I had beef stew for lunch and I have eight sheets to last me until tomorrow.

Laughter has drawn upon my face for these hoarders. I’m slapping my knee over those that just had to have everything; thirty bottles of Lysol and a hundred rolls of toilet paper. Would you like to know why? Because, if you got them from Costco, you absolutely cannon return them. That makes me smile.

You can read about what you can and cannot return to the wonderful store of Costco HERE.
