Sunday Morning Coffee – February 18, 2018 – Winning For Losing

. He may not be the worst basketball coach in America but Tom Schuberth’s recent record says otherwise. Schuberth’s team went 0-60 last year. His 2018 didn’t get any better losing all twenty of his games before the schedule, mercifully, ended. Coaches get paid to win basketball games. Guys like...

Sunday Morning Coffee – February 4, 2018 – Super Yawn

Do you remember when the Super Bowl mattered? No, not you twenty, thirty and forty-year olds. I’m talking to my boomer class, the ones like me who will struggle, especially in the eastern and central time zones, to stay awake long enough to see the confetti fall. No matter the...

Sunday Morning Coffee – January 28, 2018 – I Get Knocked Down…

I get knocked down by a cinco de bypass five months earlier, but I got up again. I get knocked down from cataract surgery six days prior, but I got up again. I get knocked down by a sixty mph fastball, but with some help, I slowly and painfully got...

Sunday Morning Coffee – January 21, 2018 – Put Me in, Coach

An hour, maybe two from now, I’ll step into the batter’s box, wish the umpire a good morning, smooth the dirt with my back foot, give the catcher’s right shin guard an OCD love tap with the knob of my bat and then dig in for the most important plate...

Sunday Morning Coffee – January 7, 2018 L’dor v’dor

I’m not sure when the virus started and frankly I never paid too much attention to it. I was never warned I’d catch it but it started, gradually, over time. In Hebrew it’s l’dor v’dor — from generation to generation. I never saw it coming, either. What seemed like entirely...

Sunday Morning Coffee (on Monday) – December 25, 2017 The Art of an Endorsement

Yessiree Mr. President, you had a great first year. In fact it probably was the greatest year in the history of years. We know that because you keep reminding us of it. It started with the largest crowd ever to see a Presidential inauguration. Even though thousands of people were...

Sunday Morning Coffee – December 10, 2017 – Sweet Home

When we moved to Birmingham about nineteen years ago, I was told by a lifelong Alabamian to be proud about one thing. “What’s that?” I asked with my Yankee twang. “You ain’t living in Mississippi.” With all due respect to our western neighbors, our time in central Alabama has been...
