WRITER’S NOTE: This piece was written in December of 2003 and presented to my dad as a birthday gift on January 3, 2004.   Detroit   I have never lived in Detroit. I have never even been there on vacation.. I’m sure that within my lifetime I will more than likely take that vacation, hopefully for the first time with my dad. But should I never make the trip, that…

Our Revolution

Last night, Senator Bernie Sanders addressed Bernie 2016 supporters about next steps for the #PoliticalRevolution now that the Democratic Party nominating process has reached its completion. We’re sharing the full video and text of the speech here at theLeftAhead because we agree with the Senator from Vermont’s prediction that future historians will look back at the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and the accompanying political revolution as the launching point…

Be Bold, Change the System

The following video tells a story of Chris Wilson and explains who he believes is best fit to be the next president of the United States of America. Chris Wilson is not a famous person making his celebrity endorsement. Rather, he is an ordinary American. Why then (you might ask) should I care who Chris is endorsing for president? Well, Chris is an ordinary American who happens to also have…


Open Letter to Secretary Clinton

Dear Secretary Clinton, Some people think that I am supporting your opponent, Senator Sanders, because I want the boys to like me, or because I am not a true feminist or Democrat. I have been told that I must be an idiot by some of your supporters for supporting Sanders instead of you, and you have—most condescendingly—said that you “feel sorry” for people like me (Sanders supporters). I am a…

Friends S2:E24 – Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there. She would merengue and do the cha-cha and while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar. Yo! What is the damn dee-lee-o, Friends Crafters? OH. MY. GOD. It’s hard to believe but the end is nigh for the second installment of Friends 20/20….

Us and Them – I didn’t get to see it. I listened to it on the radio on my way to the airport. So, no, I didn’t see it, but I heard Bill Schoening tell me how player of the game Danny Green was tripped by Steven Adams into Kevin Durant with 54 seconds left in a ball game that was tied at 90 a piece. Yep, I heard all…

Check the Rhime – Just before Thanksgiving last year, while back home visiting family and friends in Texas, I returned to the AT&T Center for the first time since the San Antonio Spurs fifth championship banner had been hung in the rafters. This was also my first time back in San Antonio since my wife and I moved to Denver, Colorado a few short weeks after our beloved Spurs had…

Friends S2:E23 – What it do, Friendsinistas? Hope you’re doing well. We have been keeping mad busy here in the TLA bunker these past few weeks. As loyal readers, you’ve probably noticed that late Spring into early Fall is theLeftAhead’s busy season, so to speak. The reason for that is two of our Feature blog series (Black & Silver and Friends 20/20) start to overlap in late April when the…

Point of No Return – Well, that was not for the faint of heart. What a dogfight. I think it’s safe to say we can add this one to the list of legendary playoff street brawls on the road that the Tim Duncan led Spurs always seem to find ourselves in year after year. Thankfully, somehow and someway, San Antonio escaped Chesapeake Energy Arena (one of the most hostile environments…

Something in the Way – It’s funny what a difference 48 hours can make for a tribe of true believers who are in the middle of a noble quest to recapture basketball nirvana. For two weeks, we had been on top of the world. Invincible. Food never tasted better. The sun never shined brighter. Ordinary, day-to-day problems didn’t seem so bad. How could they if the Spurs are undefeated in…

Staging Area

Friends S2:E22 – Hola, damas y caballeros. ¿Qué hay de nuevo? Well, I’m back in beautiful Colorado. Strike that. I’m back in Colorado. When it’s May and we’re still getting winter storms that include snow flurries, there’s a few other adjectives I would use to describe my state of residence other than beautiful. But that’s neither here nor there. I’m glad to be back and rested as you and I…
