NTSF 127: A Fresh Start for Spring…

So I finally followed through on a promise I’ve been making for some time. After several years of watching my hair slowly grow out from buzzed beginnings, blossoming outward like one of those Chia Heads before flopping earthward in a mane around my shoulders and down my back, I’ve done something altruistic for a change. For years my wife has suggested, given my ability to grow one prodigious head of hair, that I should donate the tresses... Read More

NTSF 126: Solace in the Slump Cycle

I thought this time shift to “save the daylight” was supposed to make it easier to retain our energy throughout the day. Yet it seems that as soon as we sprung forward, I fell back on my backside.

If — nay, when – everything goes right, one way or another, the book is going to be in print before the... Read More

NTSF 116: Why we root the way we do…

It is something that so wholly encompasses the sports fan’s consciousness that it seems second nature. Yet it is one of those things that the fan rarely thinks about as he goes about his daily existence. Rooting for his team or teams, year after year, there are precious few occasions on which he finds himself questioning why he continues to offer his support, year after year. Read More  Read More
