Another Christmas has passed, and this year I got my annual fishing license as a gift from my parents.
Facebook tried to tell me what my 20 biggest moments were in the past year, but it was close only when I considered the list was drafted by a program made by people who don't know me. Technology thinks my year can be reduced to pictures and subsequent "like" clicks from "friends". Impossible.
The Colts were a nice little story six weeks ago.
I can't say I've ever been fishing on Christmas Day, although I went out on Christmas Eve once.
He had probably washed the dishes, made the bed and been exceedingly polite. Not solely because of the question/statement he'd later ask, but maybe.
Like a lot of subjects, my views regarding being handicapped and participating in outdoor activities have evolved over the years. Probably the single biggest factor in my awakening to the opportunities in the outdoors for those with handicaps was when I met Arvel Gipson. Old Arv had fallen off a high transmission line and broken his back, which left him using crutches for the rest of his life. The odd thing was, Arvel refused to let his handicap stop his enjoyment of the outdoors.
I've learned over the years that a person could drive themselves crazy worrying about every little detail when it came to fishing.
I don't remember my first-ever fishing trip, but I do recall the early days of fly-fishing in which hitting the water while standing in it was difficult for me.
I'd like to share with you a gift idea for someone that you hold very dear. It's best suited for kids, but it also it suitable for spouses, best friends, or anyone you really care for. I began to fish when I was quite young. In fact I was so young that I don't remember when I caught my first fish, nor when I got my first fishing rod. But I do remember Big Mack.
Today, I picked up my new Remington shotgun.
On Christmas of my 12th year, I received a brand-new, shiny Winchester .22 rifle from my parents.
It was just a few months ago - also known as forever in NFL time - that San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh stood in front of the media and proclaimed his love for Alex Smith.
I'm not sure the exact reason, but this is the time of year when I see the most arrests being made for poaching on the water.
It could have been the greatest Hall of Fame class since Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were installed in the very first vote back in 1936.
My brother has always strictly adhered to a linear approach to life. Things will happen in a specific, organized, planned way. Naturally, he has failed miserably.
The Warriors have won their first 16 games of the season, which is ridiculous. So talking about them doubling that streak is doubly ridiculous.
Congratulations to the Warriors for going 16-0 out of the gate. Let me express my overriding sentiment about the achievement in two words:
