To Xfinity And Beyond

The first concert I ever attended was on June 3, 1978 at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. Unfortunately, the performer was Bruce Springsteen. I say unfortunately, because as any number of rock ‘n’ roll enthusiasts will tell you, Bruce Springsteen just may be the best live performer on Earth. And so after experiencing his speaker-climbing, story-telling, crowd-surfing, three-plus-hour extravaganza, I simply assumed this was the norm for live concerts.

What LeBron James Can’t Teach You

Icemaker, Icemaker, Make Me Some Ice

We have a new refrigerator. Lest you think this was a hasty decision, let me just say that we bought the old one the year my son Evan was born. He turned 24 this week. And this new one, I must say, is (literally) quite cool. Side-by-side doors, whisper-quiet motor, and a stainless steel, “smudge-proof” exterior. And, as any self-respecting, 21st century refrigerator must have, a water and ice dispenser on the outside. Like I said, cool. Listen To This […] Click to read more…
