Steven Gerrard Signs for LA Galaxy; Why This is More Bad News for Most of MLS

Normally, in this space, I would be writing about English soccer. But today I want to write about American soccer, and in particular the ongoing downfall of it. Wait, downfall of American soccer?

18 Years a Portlander: A Little Roadtrip Reminiscing

Chalupas and Trail Blazers: A Brief Memoir

I read this morning that fans will no longer get a free Chalupa when the Blazers score 100 points in a home game. I really don’t care about the Blazers or Chalupas (though I confess a weird weak spot for those new tacos with Doritos shells), but this does remind me of a story. When […]

Upcoming Talks and Hikes: May/June 2013

Well, I am off the road again, having just returned from the latest hiking in Tuscany trip, and it’s time to think like a hiker and breakfast guy, and author and publisher, again. I’ll be getting back into the new breakfast book this week, but first, it’s time to get out there and do some […]
