Comedian Takes on the 'Sleepless in Austin' $1500 Challenge

(1) Comments | Posted September 30, 2013 | 7:09 PM

I was as shocked/disgusted as most of you probably were at what was said not only on SleeplessinAustin.com, but then what was said in the follow up interview on HuffPost Live (God Bless Caitlyn Becker for keeping it together). So I did the only logical thing I could do...

Like most Americans, I have been hurt by the tragedy in Boston. We all were touched by these horrific events.

10 Things I Learned About Roller Derby From the Texas Rollergirls

(9) Comments | Posted April 5, 2013 | 7:36 PM

I never thought that at 32 I would become a fan of a new sport... and a women's sport at that. Like most other Americans, I've been conditioned since birth to worship men's sports, which is why the NFL, MLB, and NBA do so well. Oh, sure, we have women's...

Is anyone else annoyed by the homophobic support of same-sex marriage that's out there? I am.

One of the creators of a video entitled, 'Shit I don't like,' a.k.a. the video that sets back women about 100 years and makes me want to throw up at the thought of Christmas on my Facebook page late last night.

Upon realizing it wasn't a joke... I had...

Logic From a Republican Who Can Accept a Loss

(11) Comments | Posted November 8, 2012 | 1:11 PM

I am so tired of the illogical map of America argument that my Republican friends who can't handle a loss are making.

First of all, I want you to know that I am a Republican who didn't want Obama to win, but can accept the loss. Romney was the worst...

Super Hero Presidential Poll (Video)

(0) Comments | Posted November 6, 2012 | 4:14 PM

With all the "real people" polls going around, who has taken the time to ask the Super Heroes what they think? I certainly have.

I went to Wizard World ComicCon in Austin and asked the critical questions of our "heroes."

Take a break from the seriousness of today, watch this,...

With all the hype associated with the impending election, it's so easy to overlook the true supporters of Mitt Romney...

Sure we have Ann Coulter, Donald Trump, Karl Rove, Clint Eastwood and others, but what about those who took the time to write compelling songs and speak their minds...

"O" Yeah, I'm Another Fair Weather Fan

Let's be completely honest with one another: the Baltimore Orioles had 87 fans up until about a month ago. Those 87 fans included owner of all things awesome in Baltimore, Steve Geppi, and my psychologist, God bless him, who will not be named.

No one went to games, no one...

Following the Chick-fil-A controversy of last week, I took to the streets of Austin, Texas in an attempt to determine which foods are gay and which are straight.

How Can You Still Support Joe Paterno?

I just don't understand why anyone can still have a shred of respect for Joe Paterno.

As soon as the allegations came out about Jerry Sandusky months ago, we all knew he had to have a hand in what was going on.

And it wasn't like he heard something in...

Father's Day is a day of respect to the men that basically screwed us up and whose actions pretty much forced us to develop into the characters we are today.

My dad, for example, was so conservative that he made me never want to be conservative. Win right?

My Suggestions to Make the Republican Debates More Interesting

It's hard to believe that there have been twenty-two, yes TWENTY-TWO (22) Republican presidential debates already and at least another 10 on the horizon before there is finally just one candidate to face off against President Obama in the 2012 general election.

Due to supply (lots) and demand (none) for...
