An open letter to Dottie Sandusky and women like her...

I just read an article about Jerry Sandusky's wife, Dottie, writing a defiant letter to the judge before the Sandusky sentencing, attacking the victims motives, expressing her loss of faith in the judicial system and insisting he isn't a child molester. ...more

Just Roll With It....

Yesterday, we celebrated Billy's birthday. Originally, he wanted to play golf all day because he could play for free on his birthday. OK. Fine. Whatever.

To my mother, When I was a baby, I was told that you wanted me more than anything. It has been told, that you cherished every moment you had with me. That you were such a good mom, taking care of your first born baby, so lovingly, and carefully. I, of course, have no memory of it. ...more

What would you do?

Before I get to the heart of this blog, I want to make sure everyone understands that I am not degrading Billy. In fact, it's quite opposite. We all have a tendency to take ourselves too seriously, and I LOVE poking some fun at my "teammate". ...more
