The #MLBDraft  starts today and USC Aiken is hoping to make it four straight years that a Pacer has been taken in the draft. #baseball  
USC Aiken head coach Kenny Thomas has a tried-and-true formula when assessing a baseball player. He’s used it ever since the 1980s when he was a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals and ran tryout camps for the team.

I didn't write a sports article in today's paper. I wrote about growing up in S.C. under the shadow of the Confederate flag and the hateful lessons it taught us. #confederateflag   #southcarolina

I spend a massive amount of time writing. Nobody can convince me Big Bang Theory isn't awesome television.  My iPod features a shocking amount of country music.  However, at times I live vicariously through Jay Z and Kanye West verses.
