Welcome to adamsonmedia.com, home of sports and humor. After a 30-year newspaper career, I decided to step away from the daily grind to grind out content of my own choosing.
When the mood strikes, I’ll have a humor column, “Jock-Ularity,” which takes a not-so-serious look at whatever is on my mind. The response from you has been positive so far, and hopefully that streak will continue.
I will also have a sports column titled “Out Of Left Field,” which will run periodically.
In “Out Of Left Field,” no sports topic is off limits, but since I’m Alabama-born and Alabama-raised, you can rest assured football will have a strong presence in my commentary and that commentary will be more voluminous in the fall.
Speaking of the gridiron, I’m a huge fan of the Canadian Football League and have always had an affinity for upstart leagues. I’ve given non-NFL pro football its own landing spot called “Alternative Football.”
I’ve loved soccer ever since watching the old “Soccer Made In Germany” show on PBS as a kid. Although there are myriad sites covering it, I’ll occasionally share my thoughts thanks to a section known as “Sidewinder Insider.”
And with the arrival of the G League in Birmingham, I’ll be devoting a lot more content to basketball. It can be found in the cleverly titled section called “Basketball.”
I hope this will be a fun and informative website, one that can appeal to sports fans and non-sports fans alike.
Anyway, thanks for stopping in and checking things out. You’re welcome back any time.
Oh, and if you prefer longer reads, I have a book out: “The Home Team: My Bromance With Off-Brand Football.” It’s football history with a dash of humor, and you can order it right from this site.
