John Piper Is Bad

by Rick Pidcock

Edit: The video in this article has been deleted.  For a detailed explanation, please read my article, “Living Worship On My Blog.”

If you know anything about Colorado football, you know that it is an absolute mess.  After Saturday’s loss to Montana St., Dan Hawkins, our new football coach said, “It might be a blessing. We’ve got to work a little bit harder and come together a little bit more.”

This weekend is the big in-state rivalry game against Colorado State University.  So here is what I wrote in to The Fan. (more…)

Words Guys Should Never Use

by Rick Pidcock

My favorite radio station in the world is Denver’s sports talk station AM-950 “The Fan.”  Over the past month, the morning show has been compiling a list of words that “guys should never use in any context…period.”  The list is continually being updated as needed.  But here is what they have come up with so far.
