2018 AFC West Preview

08 September 2018

  Los Angeles Chargers (10-6)   The Chargers will look to ride the hot streak they had at the end of last season and put it all together this year for 16 games.  The Chargers have the makings to be a very dangerous offensive team.  Philip Rivers is still a very good quarterback who, frankly, […]

2018 NFC West Preview

07 September 2018

Los Angeles Rams (12-4)   It’s hard to see a scenario in which the Rams are not serious contenders this year.  There has been some concern about all the personalities they acquired fitting in; however, there is too much talent on this team.  The offense should be even more prolific this season with the addition […]

2018 AFC South Preview

06 September 2018

  Jacksonville Jaguars (12-4)   It’s pretty simple for the Jaguars this season; Blake Bortles plays efficiently and this team is a serious Super Bowl contender.  If he doesn’t and the team has a bad playoff loss, then I believe they will be looking elsewhere in the off-season.  Leonard Fournette has really helped Bortles by […]

2018 NFC South Preview

05 September 2018

  New Orleans Saints (12-4)   I’m very high on the Saints this season.  Drew Brees is an exceptional quarterback and gets forgotten in the discussion for not only the best quarterbacks in the league but quarterbacks in history.  I also think with the limited years Brees has left will be the same for Sean […]

2018 AFC North Preview

04 September 2018

  Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6)   The Steelers don’t have many runs left in them with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback, so look for the Steelers to play with that sense of urgency all season long.  Mike Tomlin is definitely a ‘fortunes favor the bold’ philosophy head coach, and I expect that to contribute to both victories […]

2018 NFC North Preview

31 August 2018

Green Bay Packers (10-6)   This division should be nip and tuck the whole way between the Packers and the Vikings, and I see the Packers coming out on top.  The reason for this is very simple and that is Aaron Rodgers.  Green Bay still does not have much of a running game to speak […]

2018 AFC East Preview

29 August 2018

New England Patriots (11-5)   I think the fall is coming soon for this empire, and honestly, if the division was better, it probably would happen this season.  Until then the Patriots will be on top.  Obviously the rift between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick is at its all time high (how else would you […]

2018 NFC East Preview

27 August 2018

  Philadelphia Eagles (11-5)   For the first time in franchise history, the Philadelphia Eagles are defending Super Bowl Champions.  This team is also the class of this division.  Some questions still linger regarding Carson Wentz coming back from injury, but I expect him to be fine.  Philadelphia has an elite offensive line and will […]

2017 NFC West Preview

09 September 2017

  Seattle Seahawks (12-4)   Seattle is the best team in a pedestrian at best NFC West Division.  I don’t think the Seahawks are as talented as a 12-win team, but playing a soft division schedule as well as the AFC South will enable this team to pile on the wins.  Russell Wilson still runs […]

2017 AFC West Preview

08 September 2017

  Oakland Raiders (12-4)   The Raiders will look to take the next step and be serious title contenders this season, and hopefully, a late season injury to Derek Carr will not derail that.  Carr has the weapons he needs in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree at receiver and those two should put up big […]

Posted on 11 September 2013

  The United States debt limit or debt ceiling is an amount, fixed by legislation, of the national debt that can be imposed by the Treasury.  Since the different expenditures of the government are observed and authorized by different pieces of legislation, the debt ceiling does not play any role in restricting annual deficits.  And […]

  You never know when you might be minding your own business and get invaded by a flotilla of hot air balloons. This was precisely the case at a 9 year old baseball game I recently umpired. It made for a memorable game.   The balloons had taken off from nearby Solberg Airport in Readington, […]

  About two weeks ago, I received an interesting email from a friend.  It indicated that something was to occur this August that happens only once every 823 years: the phenomena of having five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays in one month.  Allegedly based on the ancient Chinese art and science known as Feng […]

The Summer of 1945

Posted on 29 May 2016

  Summer is, for many, a period of relaxation and reminiscence on the times and events that have impacted our lives.  A time that had a profound impact on my life was the summer of 1945.  On January 18, 1945, I had been inducted into the U.S. Army at Indiantown Gap in Pennsylvania.   My […]


4 Considerations Before Going With a Long Commute

Posted on 03 January 2014

Jobs in big cities often have attractive salaries and room for advancement.  What they often don’t have, however, is affordable housing.  Some people deal with the housing costs or live in houses with roommates.  Others choose to commute varying distances.  The U.S. Census reports that the average commute for workers is 25.5 minutes.  However, 8.1 […]
