  • Ashley Judd – Children are not for sex

    Powerful stuff. I hope change is underway in Georgia. GenerateHope is an organization which helps reach out to women who have been sexually trafficked into San Diego County. As Ms. Judd points out, its more common that you’d like to think.

  • You know you’re becoming presbyterian…

    … when you recognize the dive bar in the background image of a slide during the worship service and snicker with your friends at the newfound irony to the words. Certainly, the Tower Bar is a visual landmark in City Heights. It’s essentially a historic place in the city of San Diego. But it’s also […]

  • Kawhi Leonard’s back story

    It’s one thing to know about this young man’s power on the basketball court. It’s another thing to examine Kawhi Leonard’s story behind the drive, talent, and desire to succeed. One amazing byproduct of this amazing season for SDSU is that stories like Kawhi’s get told. As the video above shows, he’s more than just […]

  • Late night at SDSU vs. TCU

    Paul pic, originally uploaded by mclanea. We had a good time at the game last night. But a 7:30 PM tip off is just a little too late for a 7 year old. Context: This picture was taken after everyone had left the sold out arena. We were seated directly next to the student section. […]

  • Basketball fever

    I’m an Indiana kid. Growing up, I played 21 from the time the neighbors driveway thawed until school started. Sometimes dozens of games per day. Not to sound like a John Cougar Mellencamp song, but we played until our fingers bled. Then we’d have lunch and play until it got dark. Where I went to […]

  • I live in SoCal, not Cali

    People are generally excited to come to Southern California. It’s a very cool place for our family to get to live! It is somewhere we never aspired to live but are completely enjoying. But I have to admit that I cringe a little when I see folks I follow on Twitter or friends on Facebook […]

  • The Vindication of Steve Fisher

    The Vindication of Steve Fisher

    If you aren’t familiar with the head coach Steve Fisher at San Diego State you should be. In fact, if you aren’t familiar with his 19-0 Aztecs, you aren’t a fan of college basketball. Yesterday was the perfect example of why they are so good. They traveled to New Mexico to play in an arena […]

  • Helping Dan feel human

    “Can you help me with my bike? My wrist is broken!” I barely heard the question. But speaking over This American Life was the voice of a man on the platform struggling to get his bicycle up the stairs and onto the trolley. With my bike pinning me against the retractable wheelchair lift on the ancient, […]

  • San Diego State Aztecs Go to 7-2

    Who would have thought that the college team in town would be the best team to play at Qualcomm Stadium this year? I know I didn’t. I took Megan and Paul to the Aztecs game last night and had a blast. We didn’t get home until about 11:00 PM, but I think we’re slowly making […]
