Doc Diz resides in Fort Worth, Texas for the past 15 years. When not playing old boys rugby or skiing, he is known for sampling Maker's Mark for its medicinal qualities. A native of Connecticut, the Doc has managed to move around enough to have lived in all four US time zones, which has allowed him to get a little perspective from west of the Hudson where guns, drilling for oil and gas and Big Gulp soda pops are still legal.

FORT WORTH, TX – I think Nick Saban is in cahoots with Beelzebub. How else do you explain their victory last week? LSU holds em’ to ten points…..ten…over the course of the game. With 50 seconds left, the Bayou Bengals kick a field goal to go ahead. 50 seconds. And Bama has no timeouts. So, […]
MANHATTAN, THE ONE IN KANSAS – This the home to the Kansas State Wildcats and located in the heart of the heartland, dry land wheat country. It’s kinda like a zit on a red heads butt… noticeable from a distance. This weekend, those Cat’s travel south on the plains to take on the TCU Horned […]
FORT WORTH, TX – An old rugby teammate of mine, Big C out of Pittsburgh, used to play Defensive Tackle for the Mountaineers of West Virginny back in his college days. At the end of their games they would sing the fight song and then shout out “ruck em’ ruck em, that’s our custom.” Cept’ […]
