PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — What’s Good Y’all. That’s right. #JSCWOW is back on its bullshit again and with this being the start of the baseball season, I decided to hit you guys off with a little motivational message with a baseball theme. This kinda hit me out of the blue when thinking about my current situation as well as that of a lot of people who are trying to find their way and their niche in their careers and even their lives.
I’ve always said that “Sports is a Metaphor for Life” and one of the best sports for that is baseball. When you think about how to go about making things happen for yourself, you don’t always have to do it the way everyone does it. You can take your own approach as long as it works for you. No better place to get an understanding of this than to simply take a look in the batter’s box in a given inning of any given game. Every guy that comes to the plate has a different batting stance — one that makes them feel comfortable. This post is about helping you to find your stance and get your comfort level.

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s been a while… a long while…since I brought you the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. Too damn long in fact. So I’m back at it with my first one of the new year and it’s time I hit y’all with a new mantra you can take into 2018 and beyond.
It’s about a thing called Hope. It’s a great thing to have. It’s a nice thing to do. But it cannot be the only card you have in your hand. Go figure that this phrase was inspired by, of all things: The Detroit Lions!
We are back so going forward, this will drop (just about) every Friday morning. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — What Up Doe, people! We’ve reached another landmark — Episode 55 (FIDDY-FIVE!) — and this one is once again dedicated to my alma mater, Michigan State University.
Spartan Football has had a roller coaster ride the last two years to say the least. As we discussed back in Episode 40, the school as a whole has been through the ringer with issues — a number of which of their own doing — and it was compounded by the football team hitting rock bottom last year after having the program’s best season since 1966. The off-season saw five starters booted from the team due to legal issues and personality conflicts and they were gleefully written off by everyone — particularly in Detroit — as no longer relevant.
Well, the boys are back, and on a redemption tour that is on the verge of epic. MSU Quarterback Brian Lewerke is even out here talking a little spicy:
We discuss MSU Football, plus a litany of other fun stuff this week on the People’s Podcast.
