Welcome to adamsonmedia.com, home of sports and humor. My 30-year newspaper career is now safely in my rear-view mirror, so I write what I want, when I want.
When the mood strikes, I’ll have a humor column, “Funny Business,” 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 “History and More,” which will run periodically.
No sports topic is off limits, but I like to take deep dives into sports history, especially when it comes to long forgotten teams and leagues. Then again, I’m also fond of “off-the-wall” sports, and they have a home here, too.
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 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.
