This week’s Philly Post column is about something I’m very happy I was able to highlight- the campaign by a group of Phillies fans on Twitter to honor their late friend and raise some money for his funeral expenses. Please check it out if you haven’t already.


Noah and Jonah in January

The first new blog post from my sons is now online, celebrating the new year, the arrival of their new cousin Jacob, Noah’s third birthday and a lot more.

I’m planning to do another big video with the boys in the next couple of weeks.

Crowe, Thome and Te’o

Some new writings published this week:

On Philly Post, I discussed why Jim Thome might not make the Hall of Fame.

At EntertainmentTell, I review “Broken City,” and also broke down some past pop culture moments that were echoed in the Manti Te’o story.

I also appeared this morning to discuss the Oscars and other movie stuff on the Morning Magazine show on WCHE in West Chester. Podcast of that will be posted at some point I am told.

Four Things Wrong With That Very, Very Bad Megan Fox Esquire Profile

Here it is. And here’s what’s wrong:

1. It’s horribly written, and you get the sense that the author was figuratively (and probably literally) jerking off as he wrote it.

2. It’s about three years too late in Megan Fox’s career arc for a magazine cover profile, and there’s not much about her that’s left to explore. She’s hot, and she occasionally says crazy things. We knew that in 2008.

3. “Lena Dunham and Adele and Lady Gaga and Amy Adams are all perfectly plain.” Oh, shut up.

4. Amy Adams is sexier than Megan Fox, and I don’t think it’s particularly close. And I’d much rather read a cover story about her. Just not by this idiot.
