From Falcons to Titans: One Fan’s Transition

For most of my life my favorite NFL team was the Atlanta Falcons.  I think you can clearly pick out the key word in that last sentence. Since moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2014, I have slowly transitioned to having my allegiance changed to the Tennessee Titans.  My allegiance...

The Rivalry

When I arrived to Warner Robins, Georgia in 1984 I had heard everyone talk about the annual Warner Robins-Northside game and how big it was.  Some called it the biggest rivalry in the state.  I had my doubts.  I had missed the 1984 game by a couple of weeks...

Changes To The Knight Writer

You’re looking at one of the biggest changes to my blog.  I have customized a new template to give this blog a magazine-ish look.  It wasn’t exactly what I had in my head but I am going to try it out for a while and see how it works. ...

I’m Not A Christian…I’m A Believer

Yes, there is a difference. I was raised in a church/religious home and was told that we were “Christians”.  Tell someone you are a christian and see what kind of reaction you get.  It isn’t a positive response, especially today. Many years ago when I went with a fanatical...

What The Hell Is That Smell?

My mother’s ultra-sensitivity to smells drove me batty growing up.  If I had the wrong hint of cologne on me she could whiff it out and suddenly it would trigger a migraine  – or so she would claim.  Yeah, she was never a fan of my English Leather. Karma...
