Today’s guest post comes from native Memphian Chris Faulkner. Chris is the lead singer of the band Rainy Day Manual and is a big sports fan. Below he sets the record straight on the unbelievable sports achievements that pre-date the video game era and the phrase, “that’s video game stuff.” Read more
This week’s Feeny Friday comes to us from Friend of The Wise Guise and regular guest blogger, Jay “Jayzor” Salato. Some call him Coach Jayzor. Some just call him Coach. Regardless, he’s back in America, back to living the summer life of a teacher, and back to spending regular time with Mr. Feeny himself. Enjoy this week’s Feeny Friday from him and, as always, here’s the video if you want to follow along at home… Happy Feeny Friday! Read all the way to the end to read the lyrics of a Jayzor original diddy in tribute to Boy Meets World, which holds a special place in Joseph and Jay’s best friendship as they began their friendship over watching Boy Meets World every Wednesday afternoon together.
[Editor’s Note: Today’s post commemorating D-Day comes from Wise Guise friend and guest poster Jay Salato. As a great American and student/teacher of French, he found himself in Normandy today. Please take the time to read his account of the humble and honoring opportunity he had and take the time to meditate on the sacrifices made on that day to change the face of history.]

Just so we’re clear, Stevie was wearing plaid cargo shorts for much of last night’s episode. This was hardly the main highlight from The Bachelorette, week three, but it certainly captivated my attention for the middle part of the episode. It was a toss up between that and his impromptu dance performance for Emily’s ‘friends’ (read: hired suburban moms). It’s shocking that she didn’t want her babby dady to be a Party MC. Still, after some serious country-music cameos and a couple douchemonsters later, some true colors are starting to show, and they’re mostly pastels. Read more
