“Cleaning Out The Garage”

Originally Posted Oct. 20, 2021 Cleaning out the garage seems to be a constant process. I get it cleaned up, swept out, everything is in it’s place…you could eat off the floor. I feel great about it.

“No Turning Back” 

Sometimes I wonder which actor will play me when they make a movie about my life. Will it be Paul Newman or Arnold Schwarzenegger, or perhaps Boris Karloff. Boris starred as the monster in the original Frankenstein movies…. yes Boris was quite a handsome and charismatic actor…. what elocution and articulation as he uttered those … Continue reading “No Turning Back”

On the back cover of the November 3, 1994 Daily News, the headline read “Clueless Joe…Torre Has No Idea What He’s Getting Into”. The author of the article was Ian O’Connor.

I think I’ve developed a bit of muscle memory.  “When a movement is repeated over time, a long-term muscle … Continue reading “Spiritual Muscle Memory”

“From Vinnie To St. Vincent”

Originally Posted October 14, 2021 I think most Americans are fascinated with the “underdog”… the person or team that doesn’t have a chance for success, yet gains the victory overcoming incredible odds. Remember the movie “Rudy” ? “In the late 1960s Joliet, Illinois, Daniel Eugene "Rudy" Ruettiger dreams of playing football at Notre Dame, but … Continue reading “From Vinnie To St. Vincent”
