The Playoff Experience

Last weekend, I had the incredible opportunity to take my sons Skyler and Kingston to the Rams/Falcons playoff game at the Coliseum. It was a great father-son day, to say the least. Believe it or not, I’ve never sat down and watched an NFL football game with them live, so that in itself was a [...]

My New Role
