I always wondered what it’d be like the second time around.

Indianapolis Colts Game Day in My Household

As my family awaited the impending Indianapolis Colts game Sunday, we were hoping that a stray football would find a way to conk Coach Jim Caldwell in the head, we were all so mad that he let the Jets into the playoffs by resting his starters in the 16th regular season game.  We made our snacks, […]

Review: IRT’s Rehashed Romeo and Juliet

Last Friday evening I attended the Indiana Repertory Theatre’s latest main stage offering, Romeo and Juliet, in Indianapolis downtown.
