Eagles Manhandle Giants

It’s late to be posting this so I won’t write much, but I couldn’t let the week go without celebrating a victory over that hated team from North Jersey. The Eagles dominated the game from start to finish; the Giants’

Eagles Crush Cardinals . . . and I’m Mad

It was a dominant effort from start to finish on both sides of the ball . . . so why am I angry? Because it’s probably too little too late, because this is the team they should have been all

Reid Loses His Mind

First off, I would like to thank the Ravens for putting Eagles fans out of their collective misery. Now that we know the playoffs are over, we don’t have to spend the rest of the season biting our nails only

Eagles Beat Bengals

At least that’s what the headline should read. Today’s game has caused my mind to break with reality, and I now live in an alternate universe. In this happy place, my beloved football team did not tie the cellar-dwelling Bengals,

Ban the Shootout

Once again this week we had to watch the Flyers lose an overtime game via the dreaded shootout, one of the many idiotic “improvements” Gary Bettman has made to the NHL. I won’t even get into the myriad other ways

Here We Go Again

The media just can’t resist a juicy story about those “boorish” fans from Philadelphia booing somebody. In this case, the claim is that they booed our Vice President-elect… Biden Booed Yeah, they’re really going to boo the guy they just

I’m Done with Reid

When Reid called those two runs at the end of the game I literally screamed. As badly as the Eagles were outplayed for most of the game and as horribly as their run defense was gashed by the Giants’ running

Notes from the Championship Parade

By now everyone has seen the amazing footage of the Phillies’ championship parade through streets filled with what some estimates have put at over two million people, so I’m not going to spend time rehashing what other journalists have already

Solid Win for Eagles over Seahawks

It took a while to get going, as the Eagles once again played a shaky first quarter, allowing a long touchdown and doing virtually nothing on offense. After that, however, it was all Eagles as they dominated the rest of

World Champions!!!

Curse, schmurse! The Phillies were not going to be denied tonight. Every time the Rays tied it, the Phils grabbed the lead right back, and fittingly, Lidge clinched the championship with a strikeout. Then the fireworks started, the champagne flowed,

Angel Canyon, Utah - August, 2018 These photos are from my downtime at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, where I volunteered in Dogtown (you can also volunteer with cats, horses, pigs, bunnies, etc.). It was a rewarding experience; I would love to return one day. When I wasn’t volunteering, I explored the Angel Canyon area, where Best Friends is located. Unfortunately it was a mostly rainy couple of days and I wasn’t able to explore the majority of the canyon as the roads were closed for flooding, but I still managed to get a few decent shots. #americansouthwest #angelcanyon #bestfriendsanimalsanctuary #landscapes #mountains #roadtrips #scenery #Travel #utah

Luray, Virginia - October, 2018 This is the charming farmhouse we rented in the town of Luray in the Shenandoah Valley this past fall. The grounds and interior were beautiful; I could totally get used to living like that, though the location was a little too remote for my wife’s taste. I, on the other hand, loved the privacy, and we both dug the feeling of staying in a historic place while still enjoying modern amenities. I would definitely recommend the farmhouse if you’re planning a trip to the area. Just do a google search for “luray modern farmhouse.” . #farmhouse #landscapes #Luray #nature #NorthAmerica #Photography #roadtrips #scenery #ShenandoahValley #Travel #UnitedStates #Virginia #luraymodern

Fundy National Park, Canada - August, 2016 This photo is from an early evening hike in Fundy National Park along a small waterfall trail. It was beautiful, like a stroll through Middle Earth, and peaceful—we had the entire trail to ourselves. Our schedule didn't allow us time to see much of the park, but it's clearly worth at least a full-day's visit. #bayoffundy #Canada #fundynationalpark #hiking #landscapes #maritimeprovinces #maritimes #newbrunswick #Photography #roadtrips #streams #waterfalls
