posted by mattaug

I am more than a day late and probably a dollar short on this post, but I still have to write about one SUPER inspiring kid: Colton Burpo. The kid author of Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding […]

‘Weight’ A Sec, Barkley A Role Model?

posted by mattaug

Talk about doing the right thing for the wrong reason? Years ago Charles Barkley, the ex-NBA great turned entertaining TNT basketball analyst flatly refused to be a role-model for youngsters. He even did commercials where he angrily stated: “I am […]

No Comment? Not My Readers…lol

posted by mattaug

I recently passed the 300 mark in reader comments, and that’s pretty exciting to me. After all, besides pageviews, there’s no other way to be sure people are ACTUALLY reading this feature/blog than getting comments. It’s fun to hear from […]

Wal-Mart Back in Black … In Bad Way

posted by mattaug

Glad to see my last post on Best Buy’s ads knocking Santa struck a cord with hundreds of readers and several comments. I LOVE Best Buy and have purchased several products there over the years … and hopefully I’ll still […]

Ho, Ho Humbled … Best Buy Slams Santa

posted by mattaug

Let me make one thing perfectly clear … as the late, great President Nixon used to say… I have NEVER been a big fan of Santa Claus. I think he’s part of the commercial distraction that takes away from the […]

Did Mag Interview Serve Lindsay Lohan Well?

posted by mattaug

“During the past five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.” So said actress Lindsay Lohan of her […]

Riverhead Students Make Waves Tebowing

posted by mattaug

Leave it to those nutty kids at Riverhead High School on Long Island to cause a stir. Or create a ‘Wave’ as it were … as in the school’s mascot. But even Connor Carroll or Tyler Carroll, two of the […]

How-ard ‘Bout That? Stern On AGT

posted by mattaug

Did NBC take a dive into the cesspool with Thursday’s announcement that Howard Stern will be a judge on the summer talent show America’s Got Talent? The show has had edgy hosts before in Piers Morgan, “The Hoff” and Howie […]

“But First … In Your Neck Of The Woods”

posted by mattaug

What happened during that hour? I’ll never know. I am referring to this morning from 7 am to 8 am when I couldn’t find my remote control and decided to do some writing instead … pity the poor readers of […]

Alec Baldwin’s SNL Stint Falls Flat

posted by mattaug

Pathetic. That’s the best way to describe Alec Baldwin’s appearance on ‘SNL’ the other night. It took me this long to opine because I only saw the ‘skit’ Monday morning on Today. I haven’t stayed up to watch SNL for […]

Tim Tebow… Nice Guy Finishing First

posted by mattaug

Nice guys don’t HAVE to finish last. Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is certainly proof of that. Somehow, some way he is 7-1 as the Broncos starter. This success comes despite the fact Tebow is not yet a great quarterback. […]

Give Jim Caviezel Tickets … To Any Game

posted by mattaug

I usually think it’s schlocky and corny when they show Hollywood stars at events and games. I think that ticket should have gone to someone who REALLY wants to be there, not just someone a network can point out and […]

‘Break Up The Kardashians': Odom Trade Could Do Just That

posted by mattaug

Perhaps David Stern is a fan of Keeping up with the Kardashians? The NBA commissioner probably isn’t a fan of reality shows, however, as the NBA IS its own reality show. The Kardashians probably breathed a sigh of relief when […]

Hey, Alec Baldwin … Grow The Heck Up!

posted by mattaug

Just saw a report that Alec Baldwin was tossed off a plane for refusing to stop playing a game on his cell phone. It’s just another instance of him refusing to play by the rules and behave himself. It’s gotten […]

Happy … Mostly … 200th CC Post!

posted by mattaug

Thanks to you readers and the folks at Beliefnet, this feature recently reached its 200th posting. It’s been so much fun and eye-opening doing this “work”, and I thank you SO much for reading and supporting it. It’s easy to […]

Sorry PBS, No Cash For You!

posted by mattaug

I don’t mean to sound heartless … really I don’t. I bawled like a six-year-old, after all, when I watched Jackie Evancho sing on PBS the other night (thanks for the over 100 facebook shares, too). She was superb and […]

Watching Jackie Evancho Sing … Turns Me Into A Blubbering Fool

posted by mattaug

I knew, just KNEW it would happen but I left the TV on anyway. Jackie Evancho, the great young singer — the America’s Got Talent runner up (how on earth didn’t she win?) turned me into a blubbering fool Wednesday […]
