The Superbowl is this weekend and I can’t wait for my beloved Seahawks to take their place as one of the greatest defenses of all time. Here are 10 fearless predictions for the game. I’ll eat at least one too many deviled eggs. I love deviled eggs. They don’t show up in everyday life very

I recently turned fifty. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. 50. FIFTY. 50. Fifty is one of those ages that people don’t let you pass through quietly. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard the words colonoscopy, hearing aid, and prune juice. According to my kids, that would be because

Pretty early on as a parent, I realized that at a certain age, raising a kid is mostly managing their will to be independent. Shockingly, that age was around 18-months old. When my kid was about that age, he loved to put on his shoes by himself. “I do it,” was his trademark phrase. I’d

As you know, we’re Seattle Seahawks fans at MPM. So, here’s a well done commercial about one of the players, Derek Coleman, a backup fullback on the team. It made my wife get misty eyed. Enjoy

I have been a Seahawks fan since their beginning. I’m sure I’m one of the few people that remember Steve Niehaus was their first draft pick ever, although truth be told, I only remember that because he had the same last name as my favorite baseball announcer, Dave Niehaus; he didn’t do that much as

My wife and I recently went to a Seattle Seahawk’s game in Atlanta. As we sit down, the couple next to my wife starts to make small talk wondering, “If we came all the way from Seattle… how far of a drive is it from Tennessee… blah, blah, blah.” Who cares, we’re at a freakin

Several years ago, my wife and I introduced pizza delivery to the small town of Otavalo, Ecuador. We went there for a wedding and while staying in the hacienda, we ended up getting the Ecuadorian equivalent of Montezuma’s Revenge. After a few days of ingesting only mint tea and never leaving our room, we were

After reading Matt W’s post about positive things, it made me think about glass half full or half empty kind of people. Then I found this. Enjoy

I have always enjoyed hanging out with my uncle. He is far more than “a bit” eccentric, which has always made for interesting times together. He’s an amazing artist with his true area of genius being carving, which as you can imagine in present day United States means he made his living from a variety

It’s been a couple of weeks since New Year. And let me say, “I really hate New Year’s resolutions.” I’m not really a New Year’s resolution kind of guy myself. Usually, if I think something would be a good idea, I start doing it right then. I don’t wait until January first. But that’s not

Well, we have completed another year of blogging on Male Pattern Madness. On Monday, Joe A. reviewed my blogs from the past year and highlighted a few of his favorites. Now I get to return the favor. When we first started blogging, we made the conscious decision not to get too political with our topics. But
