  • A lifetime of 4-H

  • Why do I love soccer?

    My family members, friends and even my co-workers can attest to my undying and, I'll admit, sometimes obsessive love of soccer.

    Or football, as I like to call it. And trust me, I've tried to get others to, as well.

    World Cup ended recently and with it an absolutely grueling and fantastic month in which I waited patiently for scores during work, watched two of my favorite teams - USA and Portugal - leave after the round of 16 and ventured all the way to Bloomington just to watch a game with my best friend at a local bar.

  • 'Karate Kid' doesn't hold up to original

    I'll admit, I planned on holding out until the DVD came out to watch "The Karate Kid," but my niece wanted to watch it and I can't tell my niece "no" if she wants to watch a movie.

    So I watched it ... and it's not all that bad.

    Make no mistakes, though, if you watch "The Karate Kid," you should watch the one from the 80s. However, there are certainly worse movies to watch in theaters right now.
