On January 13th, I only had ONE thing in mind when posting about Kobe Bryant and that was to pay homage to a man who played a significant role in my latter teen years (into early adulthood). I wanted to poke fun at how I tried to emulate him, how I saved every magazine featuring his face, how I'd watch every interview, but most importantly, how proud I was to see his name mentioned as one of the candidates for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame. Little did I know on January 26th, just thirteen days after that post, Bryant, his daughter and seven other victims would be involved in a tragic helicopter crash out in the hills of Calabasas, CA, leaving their families and the rest of the world to mourn.

Spearheaded by a recent interview (and an amazing highlight clip) captivating my brain over a long weekend (where I was subjected to cold meds, Kleenex tissues and hot tea), I felt like sharing a story about my one-time fixation with the man featured in the picture above...

Nevermind the fact that Dwyane Wade and I could be long-lost brothers, just read the blog!

The month of February turned out to be a complete disaster, capped off with the announcement that Bryce Harper has finally come to terms with a team, signing a 13-year deal worth 330 MILLION with the...

The 91st Academy Awards have come and gone and I couldn't be ANY happier, BUT, I failed to capitalize on the event like I'd originally planned. So without further ado, here is my personal list of movies that deserved Oscar recognition. Grab your gluten-free popcorn and laugh a little...

It all started with Black History Month, the Superbowl and Groundhog's Day (ugh!), followed by a nagging toothache leading into my birthday weekend (lasting through the month) and finally, pitchers & catchers reporting to Spring Training. But here comes the caveat...

Spotted a few grays recently?
Do you find yourself reminiscing about being 20?
Get over it!
Is your bedtime getting earlier and earlier?

Has someone playfully referred to you as "old?"
Shake that person's hand and thank them!

Did I mentioned a visit to Cooperstown was on my bucket list? What's that? I alluded to this in Chapter 6 of my book? Really?!
January 21, 2019
Today, we pay respects to a legacy that has somewhat been tarnished almost 51 years after his death. Some would argue that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was the last great black leader, others say he was the last great leader of a generation. However you spin it, I am truly saddened at how far away we've gotten from King's potent words of wisdom...

Look at that good 'ol burger!
I don't know about you, but I am salivating at the mouth. All that is missing is an order of fries (not to mention a licensed Physician and an irate PETA member). We live in a society where health and fitness have become king. The world of fatty foods and gluten products have gone the way of the dinosaurs... but not so fast! There are plenty of us who still enjoy a good burger. Here is a list of 5 foods that have me by the...

Just a quick Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to those of you currently on the Can I Be Ernest? journey. Its been a fun ride in 2018 and I'm looking forward to seeing what the new year brings. Wishing everyone great health, prosperity, and happiness in 2019! Also, stay tuned for more foolishness from yours truly : )

I usually don't get caught up in holiday hype; scurrying through department stores, maxing out my credit card, standing on ridiculously long lines as if I'm anticipating an award for "Sucker (ahem! SHOPPER) of the Year." However, I do enjoy Christmas themed films and will watch the following movies in the days leading up to the big day...

Plenty of topics to discuss, but as my eyes, ears and brain scoured the news, one particular story stood out: Spring Training is 70 days away! (good news for those of us who absolutely despise the cold... like me).

If you're here because of the recent podcast episode, allow me to introduce myself - I'm the angry guy who went on a 30 minute rant about a music genre which helped raise me. Sorry, not sorry...
