The new episode of #TheMiddle  features Matt Barnes, a local sports broadcaster in #Columbus . We make jokes and talk about life's expectations and how he stays level.

That's Matt Barnes, next to cult hero sports guy Gus Johnson. Matt is the focus of this episode of The Middle. He and I met in 2009 when he so courteously complimented my two-minute segment on live TV. It was my first time on live television, and I was nervous, so when he went out of his way to write me a message, it amplified my adrenaline and meant a lot. He was a big deal to a lot of us Ohio University graduates and certainly stil...

HEY YOU, WATCH THIS LASER GOAL
Daniela Montoya’s laser snatched two crucial points away from the Mexicans in their opening match.

My teenage soccer fan is jumping for joy. Luca Toni - at 38! - just won the Serie A scoring title. For +The18:

Verona’s ‘old man’ slotted in his 22nd goal of the season in a loss to Juventus.

Here's a two-year-old moment of sporting madness for your Monday. For +The18:
 
As this season ends, let's take a look at perhaps the most dramatic finish to a semifinal ever. These 17 seconds are amazing. As the announcer says, "Do not scratch your eyes! You are really seeing the most extraordinary finish here." http://bit.ly/wat-lei
A twice-saved penalty and a mad dash of madness sent Watford to the Championship playoff Final in 2013.

Time for the best round of the Champions League! For +The18 here are the best 6 semifinals of the last 20 years.

If you weren't already stoked for Bayern-Barca and Real-Juve reliving these 6 stunning semifinals will get you there. http://bit.ly/best-semis
Which moments of the past 20 years were good enough to make the cut?

The #USWNT announced its expected roster, so here are five storylines to watch as the World Cup approaches. My latest for +The18:

#soccer #canada #football 
The World Cup in Canada is less than two months away, and the field is the tournament’s strongest ever.

Something different. Episode six of The Middle podcast is called "Drinks."
This is something different.  A few notes: There are some curse words in this episode. Enjoy them. Or don't. Your call. Also, you might want to plug in some headphones for the best listening experience. Thanks to Matt Barnes, Ryan Hohman, and the vulgar, hilarious Maria Maggio for lending their voices to the show this time.  The most recent episode of The Middle is with terrific, fun guy Matt Archibald. All the episodes are av...

For +The18: With no Suarez, no Sterling, and a hobbled Sturridge, are beautiful, flowy Liverpool about to become physical and pragmatic? 

#soccer   #EPL   #Liverpool   #LFC   #YNWA  
Without the core from the title-challenging, beautiful team of yesteryear, can Liverpool contend for the Premier League in upcoming seasons?

Episode five of 'The Middle' is with +Matt Archibald, a quintessential Fun Guy. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening and thanks to those who've rated the show on iTunes!

That picture above is of my friend Arch (Matt Archibald) at the Arch in St. Louis. As you can probably tell, he's great. The pun wasn't lost on him that day. He and I are part of a group that shares common characteristics. Those traits - we're always laughing, little things don't bother us, etc. - are what make us friends. No one embodies the "Fun Guy Spirit" more than Arch. He works as a video producer (while wearing many other hats...

This is a fun one: I go home in the latest podcast episode of #TheMiddle , and I talk to an old friend about her time as a schoolteacher in #Jacksonville . Then we swap stories about our grandparents and discuss whether women and men can have meaningful friendships.

#podcast   #audio   #production   #interview  
We all know people who just get us. No matter what's going on, you understand what's going on in the other person's brain, and what that person is feeling, and how they really are. For me, Annelyse Giovannitti is one of those people. We've been friends since seventh grade, and little has stood in our way since. In the third full episode of the show, Annelyse gets me a little wine-tipsy, talks about a few years teaching at a primarily...

I've always wanted to write a bit about Andrea Pirlo and his beard. For +The18!

Twelve years after losing in the final, Juventus has taken the long path back to the UCL final four.

Lindsay Ratowsky, the creator of FiftyCoffees.com, was nice enough to pick up her phone when i called her for the newest episode of #TheMiddle . We talked about her work journey, and how she started to feel creative after spending so much time around creatives.

I've already mentioned her a few times, so it's about time I talked to Lindsay Ratowsky. The Californian turned New Yorker is the creator of Fifty Coffees, the site that sparked the idea for this podcast. Her site - where she interviews the creatives in her life and blogs about who they are and what she learns from them - was named one of the best 35 personal portfolios on the web. Aside from her site, Lindsay and I talked about her ...
