Should the NFL Players Stick to Playing Football?

I didn’t watch much NFL football this weekend, but I certainly heard about every single one of those players who made the decision to stand or kneel during the national anthem! One thing I’ve heard from a lot of people is that football players (and celebrities in general) should stick to playing football, and stay out of […]

An Abbreviated List of Things I Like

It’s Wednesday in the summer and no one reads blogs post on a Wednesday during the summer, no one really reads blogs any day in the summer, at least that’s what my Google Analytics say! So, I’ll write something for me, since I’m probably the only one who will read it… Here’s an abbreviated list […]

10 Ways Old White Dudes Can Stay Relevant in the Workplace

I don’t consider myself an old white dude, but I’m sure most of the twentysomethings working for me probably think I’m the old white dude! Old white dudes are at a crossroads of the American workplace. They used to be on top. There was no better role to have in the American workplace than to […]

5 Great Excuses to Miss a Coworkers Wedding!

I had one of my Recruiters ask for some advice this week. It wasn’t work advice, it was a little more personal.  She had told a person she would attend a wedding of a family member with them but was having second thoughts. It was one of those Holy Crap moments! I don’t really like […]

People Who Are Always Late Are the Real Terrorists

I have a confession to make. I’m anally retentive on time. I’m so on time, that if I’m ‘on time’ I think I’m late. For me, being on time means I’m ten minutes early to whatever it is I’m scheduled to do. If I know I might be late, I get anxiety. My close friends, […]

Hi, My Name is Tim, and I’m a Lonely Middle-aged Guy.

Middle-aged men face this weird life-path. You start a career. Get married. Move to the suburbs. Start a family. Become a little league coach. Watch your kids graduate. Then you get ready to die. I feel like I’ve got more friends than ever in my life, but if I stop and really put down on […]

Sackett’s Top 10 Fast Food foods of All Time

So, I’m a big fan of sportswriter Bill Simmons. I love his writing and his podcast. About a year ago he started a website called The Ringer that basically develops sports and pop culture content, and last week they released a list of the Top 50 Fast Foods of all time. On his pod, Simmon’s […]

I’m not an “Us” or a “Them”

Politics are ruining my friendships. Look, I don’t really want to know what you care about, because most of us care about crazy shit that others don’t understand, or can’t understand. You getting me to understand your crazy, probably isn’t a good thing! I have true friends who are pro-life. I love these friends. I don’t […]

Officially Announcing My Candidacy for the 2020 Presidential Election #ACatInEveryPot

Apparently, we will now campaign for four years to become the President of the United States for four years. Makes sense. I like the Canadian system of campaigning way better than what we have here! 90 days or less and we’re done! Doesn’t that sound like a smart law? Until then, I’ll have to live […]

The Gift of Desperation 

Things are going pretty well. Very okay. Smooth. I’ve got no complaints. Just keeping the train on the tracks. We’re running a well-oiled machine. Things are humming along. The sound of average is something we’ve gotten so use to hearing that we actually don’t even hear it any longer. The calmness that surrounds average is warm […]
