Cubs, Cardinals, and Destiny

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Baseball, Featured, Sports | Leave a comment

Sometimes, you reach a point in time where fate steps in and you just have to recognize destiny’s dominion when it arrives. And that’s why, despite eliminating my favorite team from the playoffs, I now have to root for the Chicago Cubs. I’m sure that once they win the climb to the championship peak, I can return to rooting against them, not unlike the 2004 Boston Red Sox. But now that my Cardinals and Braves are eliminated, I’m a Cubs …

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Golf, Sports | Leave a comment

In 2012, in the fledgling months of The Wise Guise, I participated in a preview of The Masters. I wrote about my favorite parts of attending The Masters live and provided predictions for the Top 10 golfers to be in the Top 10 on the back nine on Sunday, when it’s well known The Masters truly begins every year. I encourage you to check out that original post in addition to my reflections on Bubba Watson, The Masters, and life on the …

My son, John (Jack) Joseph Williams III, was born on October 10, 2014. If you visit my social media page or run into me, it’s clear how much I love Jack. And most times, you’ll find me quickly veering away from my usual favorite topics of discussion (politics, film, TV, sports, and books) and talk as much as possible about Jack and being Jack’s father. I’ve been hesitant to blog about my newfound fatherhood, though, for a variety of reasons. …
