Well, this is a surprise. Here I thought that I would be writing a column the week after WrestleMania XXX glamorizing fellow Wise Guise writer and friend Warner Russell and I enjoying the festivities in New Orleans. We had a memorable few days: I got to meet up with John Cena, and Warner met Hall of Famer Mick Foley. We laughed, cried and nearly fell asleep during the Hall of Fame ceremony. And then we waited in an hour-long line to enter the Superdome for the big show Sunday afternoon. Read more

Film Review – “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Captain America The Winter Soldier Trailer and Plot 500X368 Film Review   Captain America: The Winter Soldier

When Marvel Studios unleashed “Captain America: The First Avenger” three years ago, the reaction was generally positive. Granted, it was about as cookie-cutter of an origin story as you could put to film, but the performances from a solid cast made the whole thing come off as a worthwhile production.

Still, speaking for myself, the first installment of the famed World War II hero came off as a chore to sit through. We all knew the film was just a prelude to “The Avengers,” which would roll into theaters the following summer. Marvel knew they had to introduce Cap to audiences before brining him onto the team.

oxfordpic 772817 500X415 Why We Love Ole Miss

Some family and friends were surprised when I told them I would speak at my mother’s funeral. They would’ve been more startled had I told them I wrote no remarks before stepping up to the podium that day. I wanted everything to come from the heart and the moment.

As I began my short walk to the stage, I had no clue how I was going to begin. And then, it hit me. “Back when I was at Ole Miss, I wrote for the student newspaper,” I said. “The beginning to one of my favorite columns I wrote was ‘Saturday was the worst day of my life. It was on that day my mother asked me to be her friend on Facebook.’” Read more

Tennessee’s 13 Most Heartbreaking Losses of the Last Decade

“There ain’t no party like a Tennessee pity-party, cuz a Tennessee pity-party don’t stop!”

Vols Post Game Locker Room Tennessees 13 Most Heartbreaking Losses of the Last Decade

Another University of Tennessee sports season in the books, and another heartbreaking loss after the controversial charge call in the waning seconds of the Sweet 16.

Was the Michigan defender set? Should the ball have been in Stokes’ hands in the first place? Did the referees not allow the players to decide the game?

These were just a few of the questions flying out of the mouths of Tennessee fans and onto every avenue of the internet, especially Twitter – the world’s largest verbal wrestling ring. Regardless of what you thought about the ending in Indianapolis, Vols fans can all agree on one thing – this game gets added to the all-time heartbreaker list.

But just how long is that list?

As a Tennessee fan, I know this feeling of heartbreak all too well. So I began to think of other heartbreaking outcomes, and immediately (too immediately) a couple dozen games came to mind. I originally started to try to rank the top five heartbreaking losses in my head, but five wasn’t enough. Then I moved on to ten, BUT even ten wasn’t enough. After an hour and a half on the phone with my die-hard Vols fan friend, Dyron, we finally settled on the perfect number… 13. Read more
