The swivel chair of 2020 continues even in 2021. Whether we call it The Pivot, the Bounce, or the “fight your way out of a corner”, we have all had to adjust, rearrange, and adapt to what now is.

After further review… It’s an American tradition that’s part of our folklore. After mom or grandma planned, prepared, cooked and served the big family dinner on Sunday afternoon, and while the dishes were being cleared, she would say, “Keep your forks!” To all those crowded around the table that meant, yum, somethin’s good a-comin’! Some might visualize it as pie a la mode, or chocolate cake, but whatever lay ahead, it was gonna be good! After our horrendous 2020 year, with massive COVID-19 illnesses and deaths and with our normal lifestyle uprooted, can we look forward to an improved 2021? Perhaps the Cleveland Browns and maybe the Buffalo Bills are willing to keep their forks close at hand. Both had their forks ready to go in 2020 and did very well. Both made the NFL playoffs where they hadn’t been for a long time. Their fans could see it coming during…

After further review… If you have followed the trend of  TunneySide of Sports, you have undoubtedly noticed that “conversations” between opponents is not recommended – as my father would advise, sometimes admonish. The tag-along of those conversations often rolled into “trash talk” which would more than often lead to pushing and shoving and soon a fight would break out. That is what I saw happen at the end of that Armed Forces Bowl game. Perhaps that game on December 30, 2020, should be called the Armed Forces Brawl since the game between Tulsa University and Mississippi State University ended in a full-blown brawl! It is reported that trash talk between players of both teams started before the game and continued throughout. The Mississippi State Bulldogs defeated the Tulsa Hurricanes  28-26. I guess the names Bulldogs and Golden Hurricanes (formerly Tornadoes) were appropriate monikers in such a brawl. However, it’s been my experience that this is not…

The designer is a native of Mississippi, where his love of sewing and design was nurtured by his grandmother, a master quilter. “I always dreamed of moving to New York to be a fashion designer,” he says. “I didn’t know how I’d get there, or when, but I had a subway map pinned to my wall.
