World Class Crossroads

When I was approached by this blog inviting me to give props I had to think long and hard about it. What one thing has just been killing it? Is there one idea that deserves recognition for shining through it all? Well, since college graduation 2 years ago I’ve worked in Chicago and Dallas, and now I’m living back in full-time Indianapolis for the first time since high school. So after that whirlwind, what one thing encompasses it all? What one place is always there with open arms, offering family, friends and abundance of things to do? Its simple: Indianapolis. The Circle City. The Spaghetti Bowl. Naptown. Call it what you want, but this charming, family-oriented, sports obsessed, crossroads of a city is killing it right now.

Kickball

Today, I want to give props to kickball. To the beloved school yard game of everyone’s childhood and the hardcore sport that women in Indianapolis between the ages of 9 and 40 play. Yes, that’s what I said, and that’s what I meant. When people think kickball, they think of the red squishy ball, playing in a grass field and all this wimpy BS. That’s for pansies. And every time someone suggests I join their “intramural kickball league” I have to decline because I can’t bring myself to play fake kickball, I just can’t. REAL kickball, CYO Kickball in Indianapolis, is a girls-only, play on black-top, all out competitive sport where the Catholic schools in Indianapolis have leagues beginning in 4th grade to compete against the other schools in the area for the glorified honor of the city championship title.

Hashtag Teacher Problems

Props: Teachers I have a lot of friends who are teachers, and it’s back-to-school time, right? They’re always complaining about these small children, the crazy things kids do, their salary and blah blah blah. That’s all I could think about a few years ago while I was in college studying for exams, and my teacher…

Hot Yoga: A Memoir

Props: HOT YOGA…Pants You hear “hot yoga,” and what comes to your mind?  For most men, it’s a little heat, some stretching and an abundance of yoga pants… WRONG.  After it all, I was sulking in my wrongness and realized the people around me deserve a hardy props for being the gladiators that they are.…
