    What do I want for Christmas? Derek Jeter, of course

    Walt Disney World is by far “The Happiest Place on Earth.” My then girlfriend, Jennifer, and I went there in January 2007, where I got down on one knee on a chilly night in front of Cinderella’s Castle under the fireworks and asked her to be my wife. We went again as a married couple in January of 2009 with another couple whom we are dear friends with, and we plan to bring our 7-month-old son Beckett when he is …

    Working overtime

    With my head on a swivel going back and forth, I do my best to take in the action from the soccer games going on around me. Amidst a sea of Camden Hills boys and girls soccer students, parents, teachers and fans, I was sure to miss something. There’s no avoiding it. I wouldn’t say I drew the short straw in terms of game coverage Thursday afternoon, Oct. 21, but I certainly would have my work cut out for me. …

    An escape from reality? Try fantasy (football)

    I’m kind of a dork. Don’t get me wrong, we’re all dorks. And I don’t mean the common definition by one being socially inept, out of touch with the culture or who wear pocket protectors. I mean in the sense we all have things, whether it’s something we do, something we own or something we watch, that makes us, well, dorky. There are many different examples. Perhaps you are a little overly excited about the …

    Gut check time equals stomach punch for Sox

    This is a big week for the Boston Red Sox. I know, as a Red Sox fan, every week is a big week. Many of us live and die with every pitch, every out, every game. I tend to be in the majority here. Like many of us, I watch nearly every single game. I’m excited when I take a road trip so I can listen to the game on the radio, thus making the trip go quicker. Chances are when the BoSox are playing on the West …

    Playoffs in present offer glimpses of future

    Playoff time is by far my favorite time of year. Not just at the professional level, though the Boston Celtics certainly gave us something to cheer about as Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo went absolutely bonkers in game two of the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night. But at a more local level, as the boys and girls tennis playoffs are winding to a close and the baseball and softball postseasons …

    McNabb trade to Redskins could shift power in NFC East

    How many of us have had a cavity that is starting to really bother you and you have to go to the dentist to get it filled? Maybe you have to go outside and rake the leaves or write a term paper. Or perhaps you have to pull an all-nighter at work filling in for someone. All these scenarios have one central theme in common: You know it has to be done, but you really don’t want to do it. You hope the situation …

    The elephant in the room everyone was talking about

    When it comes to work, basketball tournament time is unquestionably my favorite time of year. Unfortunately, it is also the busiest. The semifinal playoff rounds have concluded and I’ve already attended 13 games in either Bangor or Augusta. I think it would be fair to say that high school basketball in Maine rivals high school football in Texas or high school hockey in Minnesota because when the playoffs roll …
