I think all of America was super bummed after Tuesday night’s debate, which included two 80 year old men trying to yell louder than the other. Every election season is stressful, but 2020 has to be the worst. A pandemic, climate change, and racial tensions have raised the stakes seemingly higher than ever before. But […]

My ideal perfect day is about 63 degrees and partly cloudy with light breeze. I like to be able to wear a sweatshirt, or socks and shoes without sweating profusely like a greasy ham. The temperature has been in the 90’s this week- hopefully for the last time this summer- and I have HATED every […]

I don’t consider myself a fan of indie music, because I don’t typically waver too far from the mainstream. This summer I’ve broadened my musical scope a bit and checked out some new artists, most recently the Glass Animals. They just dropped their 3rd album, Dreamland, earlier this month. It took me 2 weeks or […]

Eariler this week, the Big 10 and Pac 12 conferences announced that 2020 fall sports- most notably football- are cancelled. Now, this is saddest for the players and coaches, and terrible for the business owners that rely on game-days to make money. But, I am the one writing this blog, so I am going to […]

I have always loved going outside, but 2020 has me appreciating the outdoors like never before. When everything shut down in March, I wondered how I’d be able to enjoy myself without meeting a group of friends, or going to have a cold beer at Bennett O’Reilly’s. I still miss gathering in groups, and I […]

While sports were paused from mid-March to late July, I didn’t really know what to do with myself. I tried to try new things, and find new shows and movies to watch. Much to the approval of Jesse, I have been watching Arrested Development and Community- two sitcoms that I had never seen, but now […]

I moved to La Crosse full-time in 2017, and I’ve slowly come to love this city and now consider it my home. I love exploring new places, trying new restaurants and bars… 4 years later, I’m still discovering new things. I have been to a Loggers game at Copeland Park each of the last 3 […]

I don’t mean to state the obvious here, but 2020 has been quite a mixed bag. We’ve been through a threat of WWIII, the death of Kobe, murder hornets, and a pandemic. Even after all that, I never would have expected July of 2020 to land Justin and Hailey Bieber in La Crosse- or West […]

The last 3 days were glorious. Amazing! Incredible! Therapeutic! Baseball returned last Thursday, and our Brewers, Twins and Cubs began their seasons on Friday night. The Twins have looked awesome, the Cubs have looked pretty good, and the Brewers ….. not so much. With 2 doubles, 2 home runs and 7 RBIs, 40 year old […]

Kanye’s “presidential campaign” may be best described by his 2010 anthem off My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy: Runaway. Great album and great song, but not exactly presidential material. Then again, who knows what is and what isn’t presidential in 2020. This last week has been wild for Ye, including a strange political rally/speech/address/presentation (?) in […]
