An opinion? Is THAT what that is?

“I’m entitled to my own opinion.” How often have we all heard that? It’s true…we are all entitled to our own opinion. Unfortunately, social media enables SO many people to cross the line with their “opinions.” I have to say, I was sick to my stomach after reading the KWWL FB page last night.  Comments […]

If you weren’t on social media the day Kate Middleton stepped out of the hospital with the new princess in her arms, then you missed out on a hater-frenzy. “Proof she didn’t eat enough during her pregnancy,” “Someone hand her a cheeseburger,” “Is she anorexic?” Wait. What? Kate is absolutely stunning. I think a bunch […]

YOU are SOMEBODY

You are somebody. You matter. You are perfect. I LOVE YOU. Our kids need to hear things like this. Every day. Over and over. We need to do it more often. That’s because there are spineless, heartless cowards out there who want to tear our kids down.  They want to call our children worthless, useless, dumb, […]

I’m thankful I was an athlete growing up. I’m also thankful that I was a coach’s daughter. I know how it all works. Work hard. Have a good attitude. Be coachable. And let’s be real, you gotta have some raw talent. My Dad coached boys basketball for YEARS. In fact, I basically grew up at the […]

I got an email from a very upset young woman recently. It was in response to my recent blog about the “Entitlement Generation.” She was angry, but gracious and eloquent with her words. She told me that “her generation is faced with more debt and hardship than anyone else.” I told her that I was […]

The “Entitlement Generation”

April 29, 2015

“If your parents had to use a wooden spoon on you, then they clearly didn’t know how to parent you.” Yep. I got that email last night after I posted my blog.  I honestly had to laugh. Here was a stranger criticizing my parents. I tend to think they did a pretty good job. They […]

We are PARENTS – not FRIENDS

July 4, 1993. (You’re now doing the math to figure out how old I am, aren’t you? lol) I was 16 years old and was out with my friends for the fireworks.  It was the only night that I was allowed to stay out past my 10pm curfew. “Be home by midnight. Not a second […]

Saying goodbye…

“You command attention.  That is one of your greatest strengths. Whether it’s when you walk into a room or when the ON-AIR light goes on in the studio, you just captivate people. Promise me – you will keep giving ‘em hell.” It’s part of a goodbye speech that was written about me when I left […]

Britt McHenry. Before today, most people knew her as a pretty young reporter with potential for ESPN. Now – people may know her for something much different. She’s being referred to as a narcissist…spoiled…arrogant…and many other words I’d get flagged for if I shared on this blog.  Long story short – McHenry’s car got towed…she […]

Stop labeling people

It’s no secret that I get my fair-share of emails, snail-mail and FB posts that are anything but nice.  I respond these days by laughing, rolling my eyes and quite honestly, questioning humankind. And it all surrounds stuff that is BEYOND SUPERFICIAL. Let’s talk about my red lipstick that I like to wear from time […]
