Leggo My Trademark

If you watch any professional sporting event on TV, invariably you will see one of the athletes look at the camera, wave and yell, “Hi mom!” While I played lots of catch in the yard with my dad, my mom was the one who signed me up for everything, took me to practice, took me […]

Not Playing Games

My greatest legal project was helping one of our tavern clients stay open. After the tavern’s owner and operator passed away, the family closed it down until it could be sold. However, the local ordinance provided that if the tavern ceased operation for 90 consecutive days, it would forfeit its liquor license. The closing on […]

Salad Dressing Down

Because it was a ‘Long Hot Summer,’ my wife and daughter didn’t like to eat too heavy of meals. Accordingly, they whipped up several fancy salads to nosh on. Many of those salads were adorned with Newman’s Own dressing. Legendary actor Paul Newman started making his famous salad dressing way back in 1982, when he […]

Ice Queen

I was in a store the other day and they already had Halloween things out. Pretty soon, store shelves will be lined with Christmas stuff and will be piping in Christmas music.

Wisconsin is well known for some awesome things, like cheese, brats, waterparks and supper clubs.

Not So Fantastic Voyage

As a nerd, I am a huge fan of ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture.’ After the TV series got canceled in 1969, it was awesome to see the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise return to the big screen a decade later. Capitalizing on the popularity of science fiction movies like ‘Close Encounters of the Third […]

Trickle Down Economics

The ‘Rocky’ movies are some of my favorites, and the films probably would be in my Mount Rushmore of movie franchises. ‘Rocky III’ is probably my favorite. One-time opponent Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers, decides to train Rocky, portrayed by Sylvester Stallone, after Rocky’s trainer, Burgess Merideth’s Mickey, suddenly passes. During the training montage, […]

Bad Fore Business

My son got a membership to a golf course this year and has golfed more rounds this summer than I probably have in the last 10 years combined. He’s made me proud, as he’s inherited my game: he hits the ball a mile, only nowhere near the fairway. We’ve had a little trouble finding the […]
