My Brain on NASCAR: Racecar drivers are hard to Trump

Just a few short months have passed since GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump asked the following question at a campaign rally in North Carolina: “NASCAR endorsed Trump, can you believe that?” Well, it was pretty unbelievable … except it wasn’t NASCAR that made the endorsement. It was Brian France, the sanctioning body’s chairman and CEO. France had some fallout to deal with,... 

2016 SEC preseason media poll? Here’s mine

Today’s the day every college football fan has waited for this summer. The first of the 2016 preseason media polls will be released starting in Hoover with the final day of SEC Media Days on tap. It’s “talking season” and the July preseason polls give us all something to yak about or in the case of Sturg and his Crimson Tide, something to crow about. However, we all know...

My Brain on NASCAR: Junior fans stuck looking for Pokemon

Pikachu, where are you? This question is on the minds of millions of obviously-bored Americans who downloaded Nintendo’s new Pokémon Go smartphone app after it launched on July 6, obsessed with the little yellow critter who is the public face of this hugely popular game. Something similar is on the minds of millions of Americans who are currently beginning to worry about NASCAR’s most popular... 

I’ll ask the question. Are we race fans, or wreck fans?

I was talking with Darlington (S.C.) County Treasurer Belinda Copeland last week and we were having a bit of fun over some of the topics I have recently addressed in this column, and how some of my comments may have come across as being a bit negative. The word “harsh” may have come up. Belinda is that rare type of person who believes everyone is entitled to their opinion – and this,... 

Wow! Coastal baseball is the little team that DID

Wow! I’m rarely at a loss for words, but that’s really all I can say or write right now. Moments after Coastal Carolina shocked the college baseball world by winning the College World Series and its first national championship, all I can say is “Wow!” Where to start? How about the beginning of the Gary Gilmore era 21 years ago when the CCU alum returned to build the program... 

Tharp a solid choice to run the track Too Tough To Tame

I’m trying to figure out why anyone would want to be the president of anything. Take the United States, for example. When election time rolls around, the winner – and I use that term loosely – is tasked with smoothing the ruffled feathers and balancing the checkbook of a diverse nation which has now become so cynical that the “Show me what you’ve got” attitude has replaced “We’re... 

A great day to be a CCU fan, and many more to come

Coastal Carolina fans had a difficult decision to make Sunday night at 8 p.m. – watch CCU alum Dustin Johnson play the final hole of the 116th US Open, or flip over to the Chanticleers making their historic debut in the College World Series. Thank goodness for Picture In Picture. It was a good problem to have for Chants fans, who enjoyed the biggest sports day in school history. After several... 

My Brain on NASCAR: Season like watching Dippy the Drinking Bird

I know I am not alone in saying that perhaps the most exciting thing about the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season so far has been watching young drivers Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson race to the front of the field (or earn starting spots there with strong qualifying efforts) week after week. Remember the old ketchup commercial with that big glob of Heinz taking its own sweet time falling from the... 

Chronic pain sufferers seek relief from symptoms

Everyone at one point in time has had a day in which they suffer pain, whether it be “tweaking” your back golfing, recovering from a recent knee replacement or stubbing your toe on the coffee table. Pain is natural and normal. It is your body’s way of alerting you to either actual or potential risk of tissue damage. Pain can be intermittent or constant, mild or debilitating, slightly annoying...
