In light of the recent firing of Dan Leone I want to reiterate that my job as Public Address Announcer for the Memphis Grizzlies is incredible and I love working for this organization and with the NBA! Ticket deals available NOW! GO GRIZZLIES!!!



My Small Screen Debut 1993

picture-5My wife sent me a text this afternoon, reminiscing over a 90’s R&B hood classic “Just Kickin’ It” by a group called Xscape (This moniker always bothered me because it was a common mispronunciation of the word escape-Rickipedia). Three of the members of Xscape were close friends of mine in high school and had just finished their first album, so I did what any fame thisrty teenager would do, I found a way to get in the video! Don’t get too caught up in trying to digest the entire video. Do yourself a favor and jump to 2:57 for the first of several shots of your favorite red-visored-fishing-vested teen. That gold chain was real but it was thin as notebook paper.


The Tortoise Was Faster Than My Hair

As I looked back over my life after turning 32 yesterday I remembered that I had some old pictures from my mom of me as a kid. I figured I’d post a few so you can see from whence I came. Thanks for caring.

My hair was slow growing in and it bothered my mother.

It was hat city for me until…

wait for it…

wait for it…

Bam! It took me nearly THREE YEARS to get a respectable head of hair!

We embraced it for a while. Just in case.

Now about the teeth…

Reading My Own Press

The Hills

Several close friends of mine refer to me as a humble guy. That’s all due to Christ in me. I am unbearable without Him. I don’t know if recommending this post disqualifies me as humble but it sure feels good to hear folks say positive things about you on this side of the grave (If it’s true of course). Check out my friend’s blog entry. Chris Hill is one of the most authentic and caring guys I know and he has a good eye for talent (wink, wink). Thanks Chris!
