• Gluten-Free Back to School Survival Guide for Parents
    When my 11-year-old daughter Emma was diagnosed with celiac disease almost two years ago, I initially went into a pretty major panic. How would I ensure she was safely eating at school? Would she feel excluded from class parties because she no longer could eat the gluten-filled cupcakes? I’m a “fixer” by nature and this […]

  • It’s the Jets – EaglesFanCast 188
    The New York Jets hosted the Philadelphia Eagles in north Jersey, and the Defense did indeed win the game.  But not the Defense that everyone was predicting. Our Eagles Defense grabbed four turnovers and kept the Jets Offense stumbling at times, not able to accomplish much. The Eagles Offense, on the other hand, were more […]
  • False Hope – EaglesFanCast 187
    The Philadelphia Eagles lost the home opener to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.  The Eagles were less than ineffective in the game, and it was unbelievable to watch.  Our Defense were able to hold the Cowboys most of the game, but the Eagles Offense could not do anything.  There was no run threat, there was […]
  • Fix It – EaglesFanCast 186
    So the first game of the 2015 NFL season did not go as planned for the Philadelphia Eagles.  The first half of the game, it seemed no one was ready to play real football.  The Atlanta Falcons went into the lockerroom at halftime with a 20-3 lead.  Our quarterback Sam Bradford was not good, our […]
  • So It Begins – EaglesFanCast 185
    The preseason ends, and the 2015 NFL regular season is about to begin. The Philadelphia Eagles are a very different team than the 10-6 Eagles of last year.  Chip Kelly has made massive, controversial, and unforgettable moves in this offseason that has divided fans at times, made believers of others, and has essentially redefined how […]
  • Giddy Preseason – EaglesFanCast 184
    The Philadelphia Eagles played their third preseason game, the first on the road, against the Green Bay Packers.  The Birds lay down 39 points in the first half alone.  On top of that, quarterback Sam Bradford played a perfect game.  We reiterate… perfect.  He threw no incompletions, going 10 for 10 for 121 yards, and […]
  • Times Of My Life I Will Never Get Back
    How many times have you encountered those moments, when you watched, read, listened, or participated in something where at the end you disgustedly thought, “Well there’s ten (twenty, thirty, etc.) minutes of my life I will never get back!” I said this just the other morning after reading an email from an uncle who is new to […]
  • Cutting the (Cable) Cord Part 2: How I Did It
    In Part 1, I described your options for cutting the cable cord. Here I disclose which option I went for and how I have it all set up. But first, a couple of minor changes and additions to Part 1: I’m sorry if you went to Part 1 looking for your options on how to cut a […]
  • Cutting the Cord Part 1: Your Options
    I recently joined the ranks of an exclusive club (well, sort of exclusive) and officially “cut the cord”. If you are unaware of the concept, cutting the cord means you get the satisfaction of telling your overpriced Cable provider to “go fuck yourself” and save some substantial cash in the process. I won’t go into the […]
  • On Being a Linchpin
    The highest level of management I’ve reached in my career is Operations Manager. It was a tough job, but I was successful. I was good at it. And it was an eye-opening experience for me. When I started, I had nothing to go on but instinct, and as it turns out my instincts were good. […]
  • How Weight Watchers Changed My Life
    So fellas, what was your first impression of the title? Did you call me derogatory names? Did you laugh? Why is Bryan talking about meetings of overweight women in spandex and over-sized shirts? If that’s what you think Weight Watchers is, you should listen up, because when a man of my level of skepticism shows […]
