When I came up with the title “It’s Dangerous to Go Alone” I was thinking metaphorically dangerous. Maybe dangerous for your spirit or emotional state. I had no idea that it is physically dangerous to go alone.
Recently, I read an article about a teenager named Jamie from Dublin, Ireland who saved a man's life with three words. Jamie was on the way to a local convenience store to grab a Gatorade when he saw a man in his 30s sitting too close to the edge of a bridge. Something about the situation made the sixteen-year-old uncomfortable so he approached the man and said these three words…
A few months ago I heard the earworm, "The Middle" by Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey. I've kept it in the vault for months, and against my better judgment, I'm referencing it today. If you haven't heard the song, it's about a fighting couple. And apparently, things got pretty heated because they were throwing dishes... at each other.
This has been a week full of a lot of emotions and anger. Since April a zero-tolerance policy has been in effect on the Mexico border. That meant that people coming across would be prosecuted in a criminal court. The end result of this zero-tolerance policy was that young children were separated from their parents.
There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you have been heard. Countless times, I walked into the house as a young father and called for my wife, Kelly, to help me with something. If I couldn’t get a response, I immediately looked at the children and asked, “Where’s your mother?” Regardless of the reason that I needed her, I really wanted to know that I had been heard.
I'm back at it with my super relevant song tie-ins. This week I'm going to the, often confused with Blink-182, recently turned country, pop-punk band Lit. I couldn't be more cutting edge, right? I think I've discovered a new type of dadism. You have dad jokes, dad reflexes, and now dad song references.
If you watched our Celtics get beat by the Cavaliers last week, you probably have very little love for Lebron. Although it was really amazing to see a young Celtics team give LeBron a run for his money, the pure talent and maturity of James and the Cavs won out.
In game one of the 2018 NBA finals, Lebron James put up 51 points…
If someone were to tell me that Boston had more dogs in it than children, I wouldn't be surprised. If Boston loves dogs, I think JP loves them even more. Don't have a dog? A stroll down Centre Street will give plenty of dog watching opportunities, and it's not hard to understand why people love their dogs so much. Dogs can become great companions. There is a reason we call them, "Man's best friend." They're fun, rewarding, and loyal.
